A Star Is Born was planned from the start

I am not sure if any one else thinks about this but I had this weird realization when I saw Gaga go up to get an Oscar. I feel like Gaga making a huge hit movie was one of her goals from the beginning of her career. Even though she is known for her music she created characters in her music and then it slowly shifted into her acting in her music videos. She would make mini movies. Then she would randomly do random appearances in movies like Machete Kills and Sin City and then finally her own character in American Horror Story. It’s just crazy to think all that was planned because she was basically learning and building her way up to it. It makes me wonder what other goals she might have that we might not even know about yet. 

 

Also I had this feeling inside the Gaga really wanted to be an actress when she came out with Marry the Night video I just didn’t know if anyone would take her seriously as an actress because of her being a pop star. It’s just crazy how she managed to do it anyways after all these years.

I think so too! So obviously we know her first career choice was to be an actress, but that didn't work out. When she made it with music, that was when I think she knew she'd be able to be an actress like she always wanted to, and that started being reflected in her music videos.

Something I really respect about Gaga is that she always seems to have really solid artistic goals, and it means nearly everything she does is done to a really high standard.

prior to The Fame she had already acted, you can easily find an ad where she is eating something, the origin of this emoji :saladga:

 

the above is stated in accordance to the prophecy

You know how hard was for Leo to get that oscar he has now? It's not something you plan buddy, it's something that just could happen when you are too talented.

Yup! I agree. She is a very smart woman. I knew the movie was going to be good because of her high standards. Part of why I love her is her live performances and how emotional they make me. The fact that she knew that was one of her strengths and they could incorporate that into a movie was so perfect. I’ve been a Gaga fan for so long and to see her grow and see what her strengths are and use that to get what she wanted for so long (acting) is awesome. A star is born definitely represents everything good about Gaga and everything she’s learned about herself through making her albums. This was definitely the better route for her to become an actress.

That’s exactly what she was saying during ASIB press tour, she always wanted to be an actress but she was bad at auditions. So she endlessly created characters during her musical career, because she couldn’t make it as an actress. If she was successful at auditions maybe she would’ve been a film star and we wouldn’t have Lady Gaga

but this girl made it even better- now she’s both legendary musician and acclaimed actress :firega:

That acting was so bad omg :toofunny: :laughga: :saladga:

But yes - this was no secret. Even in the Fame, she talks about being in Hollywood, in the movies ("with my pictures in city lights") etc. In multiple interviews, she's talked about it.

Ya she is amazing. I know she’s been saying that now but I remember watching her in older interviews and denying that she wanted to be the type of pop star who did it all. I could have sworn she said that when someone confronted her about her acting in marry the night.  She’s only been saying that recently that she’s always wanted to be an actress. My guess is that she was kinda of insecure about it and didn’t want to tell people back then and just wanted to work for it which she also mentioned on Ellen. But that was always the impression I got was that acting wasn’t a big goal. It only makes sense now that it really was.

Also before a star is born came out she made it seem like she always was meant to be a musician. She was singing jazz since she was 13. Piano when she was young. If she wasn’t famous she would still be playing music in bars etc.. so made it seem like music was her biggest passion.

I don't think she planned it as specifically as you're implying. It's easy for us to say "oh, ASIB is a logical outcome" after the fact but Gaga obviously had no idea if that movie was gonna bomb or not. Success like that is not calculable.

But yes, it is absolutely obvious, as she's said from the beginning, that her main focus was to be an actress and music was a second choice because no one would take her.

She's talked about auditioning for movies ever since 2010. I don't think the two cancel each other out. While she wanted to be an actress, her passion for music was obviously very strong as well. She was pursuing both, I feel, and then just decided to merge the two ambitions into one career goal.

It must be nice for her to be able to separate them again and pursue them semi-independently, as I'm sure she's felt stifled in her music career at times.

Was that acting? I thought it was a hidden camera show that she became a part of through eating at a restaurant :laughga:

The rumours are true, I’m back from the dead ❤️

Well since she's kissing married men and stealing other people's girlfriends, I'm assuming she's prepping herself for a Fatal Attraction-like role:

I don't know why people think it's acting, some of us are just really theatrical in the way we act and we react to things in real life. I would love the same in that situation, and maybe even more exaggerated.
