It’s fair to say that 2018 saw Lady Gaga once again return to the limelight. That year, the musician and actress made her debut as a big-screen leading lady in A Star Is Born, and her performance as singer/songwriter Ally Campana earned her plenty of plaudits. Not only that, but Gaga also co-wrote a song for the film, “Shallow,” for which she landed a Best Original Song Oscar. Still, that award arguably hasn’t grabbed as much attention as her apparent bond with co-star Bradley Cooper.
And the rumors of a liaison between Gaga and Cooper have been legion. Speculation has grown, too, that the pop star had left her ex-fiancé, Christian Carino, for the actor, while some fans have even theorized that she was pregnant. But when that last piece of gossip started to spread, Gaga put an end to it by confirming she was indeed expecting – just not in the way that people thought.
Gaga herself was born Stefani Germanotta and acquired her stage name thanks to music producer Robert Fusari. When Fusari got to know the fledgling performer, you see, her voice and presence put him in mind of Queen’s hit “Radio Ga Ga.” As a result, then, he started calling the singer “Gaga” when she came in to record.
