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:
Here is the initial report that Madonna is allegedly jealous of Gaga’s acting success:
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.
Here are a few excerpts from that page at Gossip Cop emphasis added by me:
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.
