“I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer and a musician. This is a big dream of mine. I felt really excited and really ready for this part,” she explained of taking on A Star Is Born.

“For me, for many years, I have created characters for myself because I did not make it as an actress, so I made characters that I could be, so I could be one, and they were always in some way related to the woman that I wanted to sing to – a part of me. Like for my album Joanne, I always had this vision of a woman with a baby in one hand, and a Pinot Grigio in the other and cut-off jeans – her hair wild and in a bun, just singing her butt off and going ‘I never thoguht I’d like Lady Gaga, but man, do I love this music.’”

Watch her explain below!

    Thank you. She was mediocre to so-so on AMH and got nothing but bad reviews from reviewers and viewers alike. Yes she got a GG but it’s well known they are bought and if you still don’t believe it, look at Leo’s and some of the other people who were at the awards faces when her name was announced. They couldn’t keep the look of disbelief hidden.

    I will admit she is okay in ASiB but that is because she is playing herself….this is her story, a struggling singer trying to make it. It’s good but not this blow away success they are claiming.
