Lady Gaga, Cooper filming ‘A Star Is Born’ in Coachella


Los Angeles:  Pop star Lady Gaga, who won hearts with her headlining performance at Coachella over the weekend, is now preparing to film portions of her upcoming movie “A Star Is Born” at the festival venue.

The movie is a contemporary reimagining of the perennial big screen tale about a budding starlet (Gaga) who breaks into the entertainment world under the wing of a troubled industry vet (Bradley Cooper) — at Empire Polo Club, where the Indio, California music and arts event takes place, reported Entertainment Weekly.

Cooper, who is also making his directorial debut with the Warner Bros. feature, will join Gaga to film scenes that take place during a country-themed concert. Attendees are asked to wear denim, boots, and Stetson hats as they cheer for the actors while cameras roll. Proceeds from audience members’ USD 10 entrance fee will be donated in full to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, which she launched with her mother in 2011 to combat bullying and promote mental health awareness.
