Lady Gaga just got a giant tattoo inspired by A Star Is Born
It's been four months since A Star Is Born hit the big screen, and yet, the world still can't stop speaking about it. We're probably not as obsessed as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, though, and that's understandable given the fact that Gaga just got two giant tattoos in tribute to it.
The singer took to Instagram and Twitter to show off the new ink. The first tattoo was a large drawing of a rose - which spanned her spine - and was framed by the words "La Vie en Rose". The phrase is a clear allusion to the French singer, Édith Piaf's song of the same name. And if you've watched the Oscar-nominated film, you'll recognise it; Gaga's character, Ally, sang La Vie en Rose before meeting Bradley Cooper's, Jackson Maine, for the first time, so, it's definitely a fitting choice.
The significance for both Gaga and Cooper doesn't just end there, however. Back in 2016, the actor watched Gaga perform La Vie en Rose at the opening of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at Sean Parker's house, and it was that performance that inspired him to cast Gaga in the role of Ally.
"Happy Valentine's Day," Gaga wrote on Instagram yesterday. "A tattoo toast to 'la vie en rose' by the beautiful @winterstone my spinal cord is now a rose."
The 32-year-old also got another tattoo: a series of musical notes in "G" and "A" which spell out her stage name in a seriously fitting manner. However, this tat didn't go as smoothly as the first. "Musical crisis averted" she captioned the ensuing snap, revealing that she almost made a pretty big mistake. Too many tequilas forgot the fifth staff line poor thing. Here’s the real deal."
In related news, certain pockets of Twitter are convinced that Gaga and Cooper are in love. But before we get started on this, let's bear in mind that the actor has been in a relationship with Irina Shayk since 2015, and they also have a child together.
We should also remember that Gaga once said that she would never consider dating her co-star.
When Howard Stern asked the Pokerface singer if things could ever turn romantic, she replied: "Absolutely not! I already love everyone and the idea is, if you really love somebody, you put the most important thing first and that is the film. The truth is, what's most important to me is that we tell a story that touches the hearts of millions of people that come to see it."
So while there may also be rumours floating around that Gaga called of her engagement to fiancée, Christian Carino, we should probably take her at her word and let them both be.
