  • Wasn't Clint Eastwood was suppose to direct and Beyonce was suppose to be the star? I'm happy it landed to the right people.

  • First of all, that's a wig

  • Bradley Cooper believed! Thats belief! Bradley is not one of them!

  • Drunk

  • She would be an amazing comedian.

  • This movie was best thing in a long time, gave me such a relief and awesome feeling ahh...I love these talented people, incredible !

  • This woman is absolutely incredible ♥️ I can‘t wait to see the film this weekend

  • I saw A Star is Born tonight and all I can say is that it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time!

  • I like this girl, but the movie is so boring!!!!!!

  • Love Gaga but I have to disagree with her on Dr. Ford. She had no proof by anyone. I think she lied. She should have taken it to police not a political arena

  • This movie was amazing. I saw it twice in one week.

  • Probably the most authentic and honest lady I have ever heard in the entertainment business. A true lady !

  • Stephen i have a mad respect what a humble guy

  • I despise Colbert.. But I adore Lady Gaga.

  • Wow. She took my words out of my mouth. We live in a time where being shallow is in. What happened to being deep and honest. Expressing your true self. Passion in beautiful things is very rare. I long for raw inner emotions.

  • Bella, you aren’t fake either!

  • This interview is everything! I never thought I would admire a celebrity so much. Lady Gaga is amazing! So intelligent and articulate, but also genuine. :) Wow.

  • "I have a glass of wine and cry." Yes, girl!

  • Love her comments on Ford and Kavanaugh, spot on.

  • I Love Lady GAGA!!! She is so talented and so caring.

  • I hope you're right!!

  • Even if Cavanaugh did attempt to rape her remember its an attempt not a full assault she was at a so called sex party and it was an attempt not a full out sexual asult and they proved there self that is was some kinda sex party and they were young is a attempt worth ruining his life he has kids and a wonderful record as an adult come on and trump made mestakes all his life this could be his calling denying him is chance it's like denying Gaga as actor she should do more movies and trump should have his chance and the ford stuff is being over looked tgat they were young hes not tge same person by far but yet she brings him down over an attempt at a so called sex party thats what there telling us that the partys were sex parties and she was drinking and wondering by herself without anyone look at this picture they paint i was really sexaully assaulted but me being and man and my babysitter being a older girl would i get the same reactions i wanted to save myself for someone i loved i was mad at this girl she stalked me and when i did get a girlfriend she told her but im not goin to see her at tge highest court and bring her down and she didnt attempt she held my little ass down and took my virginity taking a good man down for an attempt is not the same as a full blown sexual assault this was political and money motivated on her part everyone hates trump go back and listen to trump as a young man they already have for us he has failed at alot but let me tell u for sone reason he not goin to fail at President neither will gaga fail at being a actress she killed the part great job but dont let you emotions control your opinion alot of people look up to you and evem more now including me .....

  • cannot click enough like for this interview!!!! I'm crying

  • Shes so humble wish i could run into her italian too wow love her in the movie im a fan good job bardly she deserves to be a star to great Italians econs

    • Ford stuff was touching but killed it she wasnt sexually assaulted it was attemped at a young age at a party they were both young no need to ruin both of there lifes but im sure she got paid and that was here main motivation just speaking truth ofcourse someone who went threw it would relate but at tgat young of age ut happened to me but would i ruin that persons life no but if i had beach democrat friend to help me destroy a man who attempted i childish act at a party probably known to be sex partys that no one recalls but her come on stay out of emotions and look at the full picture and to be educated and talk like a baby shows you how fake it was not saying it didnt happen just saying at a young age at a party wondering arround at a party that was so called known sex party we were all young and apparently the man change his life beutiful movie beutiful artist and actor love the movie but go left vote left k. Trump probably failed at alot in his life but this is his chance to make a decference its selfish of Ford to bring a great man down even if he made a mastake at what age again come on i cant be wrong maybe it because iv cleansed my body cured myself of cancer abd learned are traditions are what kills us not genetics im Italian but if i eat pasta and all the things we put in are body not even knowing are own biology if we knew are emotions wouldnt control are opinions life is wonderful cleansed being a millionaire at obe time i kniw money dosnt make us happy being creative and able to express your form if art to the world trumps art is making America great after failing all his life and ford what i great example of revenge for money any kind hurted person wouldbt destroy a great mans life over teenage a attempted sexaul asult attempt i was sexaully asualted by my babysitter if she happened to be Hillary i still wouldnt destroy her life this was politically motivated and motivated by money on her part guaranteed in the future if its not baried by the left she made a substantial amount of money

  • An instant classic. Spoke to my soul💘

  • I didn't know Stephen Colbert, I like him, a lot!!!

  • I love her!!!! Cracked me up!

  • I laughed with her on "I find a way to love again" hahahahah

  • Lady Gaga? What is this, 2009?

  • I've seen a few interviews with her and every time without fail she comes off as likable and always gives thanks for what she's achieved. So cool.

  • She's kinda awkward but it's adorable lol.

  • I kind of liked her natural look more than the her present one.

  • everyone on earth will see them together

  • Truly a beautiful film. A must-see!

  • Lol girl, I love ya but the scene in which Ally is singing on SNL is clearly lip synced. Don't be a hypocrite.

    • Linny Crocus, I remember very well when we recorded that scene.

  • Luv her! Smart lady!😉👍

  • Faith in the world revived. What. An. Angel.

  • Loved everything except her comment on Kavanaugh. #MAGA

  • Good for her. She's looking great too since she moved on from wearing meat.

  • why get political? loved the movie and now I'm mad at you and your opinion. What a bummer GaGa. Doesn't matter what Christine Ford remembered, as Americans, we have the right of innocent until proven guilty. In the eyes of normal people, he was innocent.

  • After seeing the movie, I really like her without makeup!

  • Really great interview...Lady Gaga shows a depth of character not seen before. Love it.

  • i want to know who the fake people are!!

  • Loved the movie!! The movie theatre was filled with people crying in the end. This is such an Oscar nominee worthy movie.

  • I have loved GaGa since her very first hit song. And she has never stopped proving her incredible talent since.

  • Ive seen sooooo many movies in my 40 years on this earth and by far this is THE BEST MOVIE ive EVER seen. It touches so many subjects its life in raw form...her acting skills r phenominal and BRADLEY ...LAWD!!!! Id see this over and over there chemistry is so dope i almost wished they wernt in "other" relationships bc man theyd be amazing togther!!!

  • God I love this woman.🙌🏼

  • Cocaine is a hell of a drug

  • I knew lady was a brilliant actress in Ahs. She was beyond amazing!


  • This film was amazing. Gaga is absolutely brilliant.

  • She seems dope, Idk just weird....

  • 99.999999% of humanity are fukk-dumb~

  • /Orange Man is bad. /Orange Man is (insert)phobic. /Believe women. (loop) 10011101010101

  • Always the pro, pathetic Slowbear had to drag the interview to an emotional and psychological DEAD-STOP at the end of an otherwise decent (extraordinary for Stephen) interview with an excellent artist about a spectacular big-screen debut. Stephen couldn't help himself, you really can't blame him. He really is the big awful-looking, good-for-nothing piece of shit that always dives straight to the bottom of the bowl. Mr. Consistency. Worthless. Pray for a train to jump a track and surprise him. Just kidding talent-less hack. Just kidding. Just kidding.

  • Lady Gaga ... Italian classics should be inspired huh ?

  • Exemplary career. True talent. Intelligent woman.

  • She really isn't attractive at all,is she?no wonder she often hid her face.

  • In some angles and the voice she looks and sounds like Zooey Deschanel, it's kinda scary.

  • very ugly woman n no humor

  • I must say that I was not expecting their first meeting to go that way. For someone who is suppose to be insecure, she didn't come off that way at all. Just looking at the way she came off singing that song. I got a "I don't give a shit about anyone" attitude. I did not expect that at all. This is the third remake of this film. I want to see it. I love both these actors and their accomplishments. I have a feeling that I will not like this film. I hope I'm wrong. It's a great movie!!!

    • You will love this film. I saw it over the weekend and it is something truly wonderful. It's not a remake of any of the prior ones, but a rendition of the story. Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were spectacular.

  • God bless you all

  • Gaga seems so happy now. Ever since she started doing jazz with Tony she's just seemed blissful. I hope her movie does well.

  • Admire her more every time I see her. So incredibly honest, open and talented.

  • Lady Gaga has more talent in her pinky finger than most musical artists today. What's great about her is she keeps reaching to the edge of her talent. Loved this interview with Colbert.

  • Remember her hair during The Fame era? It's back..just modified and up in a bun.

  • I love this interview ...wonderful questions..amazing answers..she is so real...I'm a fairly new fan but every interview I fall more in love with Lady Gaga....just leave politics out of it.

  • New drinking game: Everytime Gaga says "There can be 100 people in a room and 99 people dont believe in you, you just need that one and Bradley was that." In every interview about the movie, take a shot. I love you Gaga. You're a huge inspiration to me as I am an out LGBT Pop singer songwriter.

  • So many great comments for “lady gaga” and rightly deserved , but as a actress and the whole person that she is,why not just say “hey Stefani good job!!” .....just saying


  • Just when I think I can't love Lady Gaga more, she goes and does a kick-ass job acting in a kick-ass movie! I so * *love* * Lady Gaga!

  • Her box did not open when she heard about his possible position, according to her she mentioned it years before to her husband and therapist.

  • Respect for you lady gaga. I'll pass on this interview to everyone to know.

  • Omg! Just as I’m thinking she has a striking resemblance to Barbra Streisand, he pulls out a picture of her and Barbra!! lol

  • Wow, after watching this I see Lady Gaga is really a great person and awesome personality. Before this I only saw her as “Lady Gaga”, the music mogul. It’s nice to see that fame hasn’t jaded her, unlike other celebrities, but has remained humble, grateful and appreciative of other people.

  • Please don’t pretend like you’re such a good person Colbert. 🙄 You’re about as rotten as a human can be. All this fluff.

  • Yeah, she’s awesome, but too young to have seen the original “A Star is Born.” And she got one better, she actually spent time with Barbara.

  • Watch the People interview. Cooper is decades ahead of her. She is just a pawn

  • Wow. What an incredible interview

  • Saw the movie. Beautiful story, Love it and enjoy it immensely. Great performance for Lady Gaga ( a novice at that!) and Bradley (and he can sing, oh my God.) Congratulations! ❤️❤️❤️


  • It's remarkable how much they listen to each other But not americans?

  • “You can be technically perfect but don’t have an ability to tell a story.” Take notes Ariana Grande.

  • has anyone noticed bradley cooper has the same kind eyes as robin williams? i've never thought about it til now but it's almost like bradley's his reincarnated soul

    • I noticed it too while watching "A star is born"

  • Cruela Deville no 2. I’m This woman is a complete furhag seeks compassion but gives none to the hundreds of animals that are skinned to make her stupid coats. Vile self obsessed hag

  • She repeats her "100-99-1" theory again!

    • Because that was told to him by his vocal coach, when he was starting. Tell me if it's not true?

  • omg i love her. if you like this, check out all of her interviews with Howard Stern. She is the best, just the best artist out there!

  • She is so composed, eloquent, authentic and beautiful

  • And much better looking than I remembered! She can definitely GET IT & GET IT GOOD!!!

  • Lady Gaga is AWESOME! I like her especially considering how she's a multi-gendered singer...Jazz & Pop WHAT!!!

  • Well.... Sorry GAGA.... As a sexually assaulted victim myself, you better believe I remember EVERY STINKING DETAIL of that "event"! Time will vindicate Justice Kavanaugh.... But I won't hold my breath waiting for ANY of you to apologize to him for believing a woman with ZERO credibility, ZERO corroberation, and ZERO evidence.... Stopped watching....

  • Very good interview. He really wants to know what she has to say. Love her. Loved the movie. I was already a fan specially after the DVD with Tony Bennett . She is a complete artist. She can do anything she wants. Lady Gaga inspires me. May she stay this way forever. Bradley is true.Complete.

  • YOU'RE the MOST FAKE PERSON IN THE WORLD. Vacuous, Vain, and Useless!

  • fake

  • the lovely lady gaga im happy to see her there

  • Oh my gosh I love how real everybody's being how she's getting strong questions Us and how she's answering them I never realize how real she really was I guess I just assumed that her costumes was that made her but it's just a costume there's so much more of her I really appreciate her a lot now and I never did I love her she can be real and stay real to her audience and her music

  • Seriously, best interview ever. Lady gaga is so well spoken, calm, elegant, honest.... The host appreciates her fully and that is amazing. That kind of behavior should happen more often among people. Just class. Simple. Much love from Croatia!

  • I love you lady Gaga!!!!

  • Their combined talent equals negative infinity

  • She is just amazingly normal.
