Irony of Lady Gaga's Character


Does anyone else find it ironic how it the movie Lady Gaga's character begins as a soulful artist and then transitions to a pop diva, whereas in real-life Lady Gaga has transitioned to a pop artist to soft rock?

reply

In real life she started with soft rock, back in the mid 2000s, using her real name. She wasn't very successful doing that so she came up with the Gaga persona.

It's ironic but it was made like that on purpose to show the rise of the blond pop icon.

This was a good movie overall but i had a really hard time accepting gaga's character transforming seemingly overnight from rock chick to disco diva, and a pretty unconvincing one at that. Can you imagine her character really being a grammy award winning sensation in the real world? I cant.

Why could you not imagine her a Grammy winning sensation in the real world?

I do know that I previously never paid much attention to her because she was doing the whole outrageous diva thing that doesn't do anything for me. And I never really cared for the songs that she chose either. But a few years ago I was shocked when I heard her perform those songs from The Sound of Music.. I hadn't had a clue that she was really talented.
I suppose now she'll reinvent herself every few years..
