LADY GAGA WILL USE HER REAL NAME IN ‘A STAR IS BORN’ CREDITSMay 15, 2017
She has decided to use her real name Stefani Germanotta in the credits instead of what we all know her by… Lady Gaga!
A Star Is Born will be a remake of the 1976 movie and Gaga will star alongside Bradley Cooper. It follows the story of a movie star helping a young singer/actress find success as his own career is in jeopardy.
A source told Variety:
“There’s something appropriate about Gaga being credited as Stefani in the role of an unknown ingenue being discovered and turned into a star.”
I am so excited to star in my first movie alongside someone I'm so lucky to call my friend. I always wanted to be an actress on the big screen. The story of "A Star is Born" is so special and I'm so grateful to Bradley for making my dream come true. Can't wait for you to meet Ally. She has her first scene in 5….⏰
According to Variety:
“In press notes for A Star Is Born, the studio uses both names when referring to the artist — once in parentheses and again with the modifier “known across the globe as Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga,” the latter of which seems too long and wordy for key art like a movie poster.”
Lady Gaga is not the first star to make this move. See who it worked out well for below!
