Lady Gaga Drops ‘A Star Is Born’ Single ‘Shallow’

Trust, hard work and chemistry were key to their re-telling of the romance between an aging alcoholic musician and an ingenue who had previously been played by Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland. The film also marks an assured directorial debut for Cooper, who masterfully makes this decades old story feel fresh and new, and gives the central love story room to breathe without cluttering the film with unnecessary subplots and asides.

Most of the music on the soundtrack is original, written in part by Cooper and Gaga, who duet in "Shallow". (Truly, a metaphor for the entire movie and what I wish were a metaphor for the times we live in.) In honor of how good the song is, we present 10 minutes of Lady Gaga's voice doing the thing described above.

"I trusted him", Gaga said of Cooper. "We built a great friendship and we worked really hard".

Chicago Cubs clinch 4th straight postseason berth
Louis had a chance to win that game but some mistakes, both in terms of strategy and simply physical mistakes blew it for them. Before Heyward's homer, the Cubs scored five runs in their last 56 innings covering six games against the Pirates .

"I had to get past the nerves, but I was so excited", says Gaga, "because, in my opinion, when somebody has talent inside them, brewing for years, ready to move into another medium and it finally happens...it's like a huge explosion, an opus".

"He believed in me from the beginning. He fought for me to be in this movie", the Born This Way singer said.

Charismatic and talented leads, confident direction from its first time director and a stunning soundtrack mean this love story for the ages will surely in time become an enduring classic.
