Lady Gaga Just Landed The Biggest Film Role Of Her Career

The Gagaissance is just beginning

Lady Gaga's star continues to rise in Hollywood.

Fresh off announcing her new cookbook and forthcoming single, the pop star has landed the biggest film role of her career: the lead in Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born remake. The role, made famous by Judy Garland in 1954 and again by Barbra Streisand in 1976, is that of a young Hollywood ingenue who falls in love with a troubled actor as his star begins to fall.

Per Deadline, Cooper, making his directorial debut, will star alongside Gaga in the movie musical as her bitter Hollywood mentor/lover. Gaga will also compose and perform new music for the film.

Gaga's career transformation from meat-dress-wearing pop star to Golden Globe–winning actress has been full of surprises, but everything about A Star Is Born feels right for Gaga. After all, it wasn't too long ago that she was a struggling singer-songwriter herself, looking for someone to give her a chance at stardom.

Not to mention, the girl sure knows how to make one hell of a comeback. A new single, a cookbook, a starring role on the sixth season of American Horror Story, and a major feature film? The Gagaissance is upon us.
