Is Madonna Angry Over Oscar Buzz for Lady Gaga’s Acting in A Star Is Born? Is Gossip Cop’s Reporting on This Accurate?

About a week ago, there were two or three sources indicating that Madonna has heard all the positive reviews of Lady Gaga’s acting in the role of “Ally” for the soon- to- be released film “A Star Is Born” and was infuriated about this, because she always wanted to be an actress or movie star, but her acting career was pretty dismal.

Here is a sample of the positive commentary Gaga’s acting in A Star Is Born has already received:

She can sing, but can she act? Critics hail Lady Gaga: movie star

Here is the initial report that Madonna is allegedly jealous of Gaga’s acting success:

Madonna ‘Livid’ Gaga’s New Movie ‘A Star Is Born’ Garnering Oscar Buzz, Report Claims

Celebrity gossip site Gossip Cop not only said no, this is not true, but in their article, they oddly deny that Madonna ever wanted to be a movie star / actress – when it’s very clear from various media sources, even dating back to 1985, that yes, she wanted to be a movie star.

Madonna “Livid” Because Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ Is Getting Oscar Buzz?

Here are a few excerpts from that page at Gossip Cop emphasis added by me:

September 2018

Madonna NOT ‘Livid’ Over Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ Getting Oscar Buzz, Despite Report

…According to RadarOnline, Madonna isn’t happy about all the praise Gaga is getting “because she’s the one who always wanted to be a movie star.”

Meanwhile, the iconic singer has had plenty of success on the big-screen, so the idea that “she always wanted to be a movie star” isn’t accurate.
–(end Gossip Cop excerpts)–

“Plenty of successes?” Madonna has also had plenty of movie and stage play failures, as well.

The Madonna films Who’s That Girl,  Shanghai Surprise, Bloodhounds of Broadway, Snake Eyes / Dangerous Game, Body of Evidence, The Next Best Thing, and Swept Away were all critical and commercial failures, and Madonna’s acting was regularly said to be horrible and wooden in all of them.

Madonna’s acting in the 1980s stage play Speed The Plow did not exactly bowl over critics, either.

Yes, Contrary to the Gossip Cop Site, Madonna Wanted to Be An Actress From An Early Point in Her Career, and Madonna’s Acting Career Was Not Successful

Madonna did in fact want to be an actress. More than anything, she wanted to be famous, and she didn’t seem to particularly care how or in what medium she got famous – whether it was via dancing, acting, or music – so long as she made it to the cover of magazines.

But at times over her career, she’s admitted to the fact that she always saw herself as an actress, and that she was not fond of being a singer.

Madonna’s Bad Acting

Madonna’s Bad Acting

How bad is Madonna’s acting?

Madonna’s acting is so very bad that not even her die-hard fans who used to buy her albums when they were on vinyl, cassette tape, and later CD Roms, would go to see her movies at the movie theaters in the 1980s and 1990s.

Most of Madonna’s movies were commercial (and critical failures).

And yet, her fans (the few she has left today) will get angry at people for mentioning that her movie and stage career was largely a dud and big, fat failure.

Here is a list of various blurbs and links discussing how Madonna’s movies have bombed, and how her acting is atrocious:

Madonna: Acts of desperation

May 2002

She may rule the pop world, but Madonna’s acting career has been patchy at best. Now, as she makes her West End debut, Charlotte O’Sullivan says, ‘Love the videos, Maddy… hate the movies’

From page 18 of The I Hate Madonna Handbook:

  • Madonna quits the acting lessons Camille Barbone had enrolled her in after one day, preferring to stretch out on the floor of her living room and take Polaroids of herself.
  • (Madonna complained that the acting coach, the renowned Mira Rostova, was “mean” and the lessons were “too hard.”
  • Rostova gave a failing grade to her one-day pupil: “This girl will never be an actress,” she told [Madonna’s then-manager] Barbone.
  • “She is too vulgar, and she thinks she knows it all. Besides, I do not like her.”)

Patti LuPone Thinks Madonna ‘Cannot Act Her Way Out of a Paper Bag’ and ‘Should Not Be in Film or Onstage’

Patti LuPone Says Madonna ‘Should Not Be on Film or on Stage’

by G Kaufman

May 10, 2017

Patti LuPone is not a Madonna fan, clearly. The Broadway legend went off on Madge during Tuesday’s (May 9) episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where she made it clear she doesn’t care for Mad’s singing, acting, or anything else, really.
