Barbra Streisand Is Not A Big Fan Of Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born

That’s quite a lot of shade.

It’s no surprise that Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper‘s 2018 version of A Star Is Born is one of the most successful musicals ever made, but Barbra Streisand did not like it.

There are four different versions of A Star Is Born; the first was filmed in 1937 by David O. Selznick, the 1954 remake by Moss Hart, the 1976 remake by Frank Pierson, and the 2018 remake by Bradley Cooper (who stars in the movie with Lady Gaga).

Barbra Streisand stars as the lead female protagonist in the 1974 remake with Kris Kristofferson and it seems that she has some reservations about the 2018 version starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

The 79-year-old singer-actress spoke about the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born during an interview, which she initially supported when it was supposed to be Will Smith and Beyonce in the leading roles.

“At first, when I heard it was going to be done again, it was supposed to be Will Smith Smith and Beyoncé. I thought, ‘that’s interesting.’ Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors. I thought that was a great idea.”

“So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976.”

Barbra then talked about Gaga and Cooper’s version.

“I thought it was the wrong idea, but, look, it was a big success, so I can’t argue with success, but I don’t care so much about success as I do originality.”

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s 2018 version of A Star Is Born was a successful remake.

The movie earned critical appraise with a 90% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 88% rating on Metacritic. A Star Is Born was also a commercial success, grossing over $400 million worldwide, with $215 million in the United States and Canada alone.

A Star Is Born earned eight nominations at the Oscars in 2018, the nominations included Best Actress and Best Actor for both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper respectively. Even the movie’s soundtrack received seven Grammy nominations, winning four of them.

You can stream A Star Is Born (2018) on Amazon Prime Video.
