43. I winced when I learned that Lady Gaga was in the newest remake of A Star Is Born

Last edited Sat Dec 15, 2018, 02:11 AM - Edit history (13)

I knew instantly that it wouldn't work for me because her voice is too generic.

I had no problem imagining the characters played by her predecessors Judy Garland (in 1954) and Barbra Streisand (in 1976) being told, "Sorry, but while you have the right voice, you don't have the right look," and needing someone further up the ladder to help them through the door. Fortunately, director/co-star Bradley Cooper realized that in these times, Gaga's character would be told "Sorry, but you don't have the right voice OR looks," and has her complain instead that she's not good-looking enough for her songwriting abilities to be noticed, never mind respected. But that's a crock, too, of course: if her songs WERE any good, someone would have noticed and given her the opportunity to sell them to superior vocalists who could make them BOTH rich and famous!
