Someone who’s seen Bradley Cooper‘s A Star is Born has told a friend that during the first part of the film “Lady Gaga’s rather plain, un-glamorous features work incredibly well for the mission statement of the title. You see her transform within the movie.  She’s molded, manufactured and launched into a splashy goddess, so there’s a degree of My Fair Lady in play.”

The source also confides that Gaga/Germanotta is “playing a performer closer to Sheryl Crowe than Gaga’s own persona”
