LADY GAGA WILL USE HER REAL NAME IN ‘A STAR IS BORN’ CREDITS

May 15, 2017

Lady Gaga is set to star in A Star Is Born! But will you be able to spot the star?

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.”

She has previously gone by her stage name in American Horror Story and Machete Kills. The question is, how will this affect marketing? Would you know Stefani Germanotta is Lady Gaga?

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!
