Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday morning, and a missing Italian woman set Twitter ablaze.
Lady Gaga was not nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role, shocking both the gays and the film community.
I don’t particularly care. “House of Gucci” was paced like making homemade pasta — hours of hard work for about five minutes of captivating splendor.
What I do care about, however, are the absolutely deranged claims that Gaga made while on the media campaign for “Gucci.”
So, I have compiled a list of the most outrageous ones.
As a disclaimer, Gaga could very well be telling the truth about the following, but I’m going to need some receipts before I believe it.
- Gaga wrote an eighty-page biography about Patrizia Gucci.
- Gaga studied predatory animal behavior to understand murder — “Gaga admitted that before the scene, she watched foxes hunt and then did exercises in her hotel room where she ‘would be the animal,’” writes Chelsey Sanchez for W Magazine.
- Gaga hired a psychiatric nurse to be on set at all times.
- Gaga was haunted by a possessed swarm of flies sent by Patrizia — ”On the last day of filming, I was on the balcony of my apartment in Rome, and I was blasting Dean Martin singing ‘Mambo Italiano,’ and I had a cigarette hanging out of my mouth. I was Patrizia. But I knew I had to say goodbye to her: Large swarms of flies kept following me around, and I truly began to believe that she had sent them. I was ready to let her go,” Gaga said in an interview with W Magazine.
- Gaga spoke with an Italian accent for nine months.
- Gaga investigated the Jan. 6 insurrection — “I would have been a combat journalist. That was one of my dreams. When I was at the Capitol, the day before the inauguration, I remember walking around and looking for evidence of the insurrection,” Gaga said in an interview with British Vogue.
- Gaga got drunk off of prop alcohol.
- Gaga thought she killed Maurizio Gucci in real life — “I drove by where Maurizio [Gucci] was shot … and I felt a pin drop in my stomach because I was so in my character, and I thought, ‘What have I done?’ We made art out of pain,” Gaga said.
Gaga sure knows how to promote a movie. Her claims surrounding "House of Gucci" are reminiscent of the anecdote she repeated constantly on the media trail for "A Star is Born," released in 2018.
There can be a hundred claims made on an Oscar campaign, but it just takes a few insane ones to fumble the best actress bag.
