House of Gucci: How Lady Gaga took personal trauma into film role

The new film tells the story of love, betrayal and ultimately murder within the famous Italian fashion family.

The singer and actress plays Patrizia Reggiani, who served 18 years in jail for hiring a hitman to kill her former husband and label boss Maurizio Gucci.

"I used all of these memories, all of these traumas, all of these moments in my life," Lady Gaga told BBC News.

This summer, the star revealed she suffered a breakdown as a result of a sexual assault that left her pregnant more than 15 years ago.

Five arrested in Lady Gaga dognapping case

In February attackers shot dog walker Ryan Fischer in the chest and took Lady Gaga's dogs, Koji and Gustav.

Mr Fischer had to have part of his lung removed but survived the attack, and has since left the hospital.

On Thursday Los Angeles police announced they had charged three suspects for the incident itself as well as two others as accomplices.

James Jackson, Jaylin White and Lafayette Whaley - aged 18, 19, and 27, respectively - have been charged with attempted murder and robbery.

Lady Gaga's dogs found safe after armed robbery

The two dogs, stolen in an armed robbery, have been "reunited" with the singer's representatives, police said.

Lady Gaga's dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot by two men who abducted the dogs in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

He is in hospital and his family said on Friday that he was expected to make a full recovery.

Lady Gaga's dog-walker shot and bulldogs stolen

A male suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun at the dog-walker, named in US media reports as Ryan Fischer, before making off with the dogs.

The victim was transported to hospital in an unknown condition, Los Angeles Police confirmed to the BBC.

Lady Gaga has offered a reward for the return of her dogs, Koji and Gustav.

A third bulldog, named Miss Asia ran away and was later recovered by police.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is currently in Rome working on a new Ridley Scott film, Gucci.

Lady Gaga sings national anthem at inauguration

There were no dancers, no pyrotechnics and the only outrageous part of her outfit was the outsized golden brooch in the shape of a dove of peace (the colour matched her microphone and earpieces, lest you thought the whole ensemble was just thrown together).

That put the focus on her vocals, which were strong and assured, as she glided through the notoriously wide-ranging melody and its tricky vocal leaps.

Joe Biden inauguration: Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez to perform

Lady Gaga campaigned for Mr Biden during the election, appearing with him on the eve of the presidential election last November.

She will sing the national anthem at the ceremony on 20 January. Lopez, who also endorsed Mr Biden last year, will give a separate musical performance.

After the ceremony, Tom Hanks will host a star-studded televised special.

Titled Celebrating America, the 90-minute prime-time programme will also feature US musicians Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, and will be broadcast live by ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and MSNBC.

Lady Gaga on 'wrath' and 'rage' of art

The ceremony, filmed at several outdoor New York locations with a limited audience, was dedicated to the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.

It included pre-recorded speeches and performances, with Lady Gaga saying: "Love who you are. Be kind. Mask up."

Host Keke Palmer called Boseman, who died on Friday, "a true hero".

Gaga's wins were for best artist, song, collaboration and cinematography, plus the first MTV Tricon Award - honouring her work in music, acting and fashion.

Lady Gaga's Chromatica is the fastest-selling album of 2020

The record, which sees Gaga return to the rocket-powered pop of her debut, sold 53,000 copies, the biggest opening week of the year so far.

It is also the star's fastest-selling album since 2013's Artpop.

The album follows Gaga's performance in A Star Is Born, for which she won an Oscar for best song in 2019.

Critics have called the record a return to form, after the country-leaning acoustics of her fifth album Joanne and the misfiring experiments of her Artpop project.

Lady Gaga plummets off stage in a fan's arms during Vegas show

The star had invited a fan called Jack to join her on stage and jumped into his arms - but he lost his footing and the pair plummeted to the floor.

"We legitimately thought she was dead," wrote one audience member on Reddit.

Instead, Gaga returned to play Million Reasons with Jack at her side. "It's amazing," she said. "We love each other so much we fell off the damn stage."

"We fell into each other's arms. We're like Jack and Rose from Titanic.

"I suppose we should have some tea after that."


Celebrities reveal their 'campest' looks on the red carpet

It is known for its exclusive guest list, its expensive tickets and - most of all - its extravagant outfits, based on a different theme each year.

This year, that theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion - to coincide with an upcoming exhibition at the Met, inspired by photographer Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, Notes on Camp.

The outfits this year will therefore, like the exhibition, be based on "irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration".
