In Hollywood’s Golden Age, the proverbial trip to stardom was immortalized in movies like A Star Is Born: a chance meeting with a talent agent at a notions counter, an appearance as an unscheduled understudy, a standout player in a movie’s bit part. But today’s new crop of famous people come from a wide variety of different outlets far beyond the classic studio system. As GQ’s Zach Baron reports, outlets like streaming services, YouTube channels, and social media avenues are now as important to future stars as a turn at the Strasberg Institute once might have been. Baron interviews a variety of young starlets, like Disney Channel stars Paris Berelc and the recently ousted Jake Paul, as well as TV’s Kid Flash, Keiynan Lonsdale, Glee’s Harry Shum Jr., and Dear White People’s Antoinette Robertson. They all offer insight on how radically the »

A star is born! While fans were enjoying the Fourth of July fireworks, Teen Mom 2 castmate Briana DeJesus unveiled the first photo of someone who's been lighting up her world—her newborn daughter, Stella. "My StellyBelly girl," the reality star captioned the shot of her baby swaddled in a blanket with a hat affixed with a bow atop her head. The photograph comes just days after DeJesus gave birth to her second child on July 2. She welcomed little Stella at 1:57 p.m. on Sunday in Florida and the baby weighed in at 6 pounds and 11.6 ounces. At the time, she was 19.5 inches long. DeJesus is also mom to 5-year-old daughter Nova, who she welcomed with ex Devoin Austin. »
Go on and kiss the girl!
The couple looked casual and comfortable together as they walked along some rocks, with Carino – a CAA talent agent – throwing his arm over the singer’s shoulders at one point.
Both were wearing backwards white baseball caps, and Gaga paired her denim shorts with a Little Mermaid t-shirt.
People confirmed Gaga and Carino’s romance in February, just ahead of the 31-year-old’s Super Bowl halftime performance.

Lady Gaga knows how to stick out -- at events, concerts and now ... on her film set, where her orange hair was hard to miss.

Paige's jerk dad and her fangirl mom came to town on Famous In Love Season 1 Episode 2, and things were (briefly) not looking so good for her fledgling acting career.
For all of the drama surrounding her dad's disapproval over her choice to pursue acting, it was rather weirdly wrapped up in a neat little bow in the final two minutes of screentime. What an odd quick-fix that was.
"A Star Is Torn" centered on Paige's anxieties about her newfound fame. As she told Cassie and Jake in the stylist scene, she can hardly enjoy all of the amazing things happening to her because of her worries over balancing school and dealing with her dad.
Oh, how sad. Woe is Paige. (Note: This is sarcasm. Everything she complained about is basically the definition of first-world problems.)
Paige even whipped up a spreadsheet in an attempt to prove to her dad that »

Shake out those flower crowns, jean shorts, and neon accessories: we’re talking about Coachella again. I know, I know you’re probably over hearing about the three days millennial Woodstock. However, something interesting happened last weekend. It’s not Hans Zimmer playing a psychedelic set though that was pretty impressive.
Lady Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) headlined Coachella’s Saturday night program — following Beyoncé’s decision to hold off headlining until next year due to her pregnancy. Gaga performed a surprise new song titled The Cure. Gaga then managed to film a part of Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star is Born. If that title sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve probably heard it three times. The Janet Gaynor-starring 1937 version, the Judy Garland-starring 1954 version, and the Barbra Streisand-starring 1976 version. In »

Filming began on Monday (April 17) on Warner Bros. Pictures’ reimagining of the musical A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and introducing Stefani Germanotta, known across the globe as Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture.
The film is from producer Jon Peters who produced the 1976 film starring Barbra Steisand and Kris Kristofferson. Nominated for 4 Academy Awards, the movie won one Oscar for Best Music, Original Song – Barbra Streisand (music), Paul Williams (lyrics) for the song “Evergreen (Love Theme from »

We've been tracking the development of a new version of A Star Is Born for years. Beyonce was originally set to play a lead role under the direction of Clint Eastwood, with stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, Christian Bale and Tom Cruise touted for the other lead role. The project stalled when Beyonce dropped out in 2012. Everything changed when Bradley Cooper boarded the project in 2015 as both star and director. Beyonce considered joining again but ultimately decided against it, leaving the way open last year for Lady Gaga to take on a role made famous by Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. Production has now begun and Lady Gaga shared the first official photo via social media. I am so excited to star in my first movie...

Chris here. Filming has officially begun on the long-developed remake of A Star is Born, which is both the cinematic debut of Lady Gaga and star Bradley Cooper's first time in the director's chair. Gaga may have some big shoes to fill after Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, but this one promises its own unique point of view: a fully country-western soundtrack. Intriguingly, Cooper will be filming live at music festival Coachella over the next few days, so you can bet we'll get a look at some of Gaga's original songs - but the studio has also given us our first look at the duo. Some first thoughts...

Featuring Cooper, guitar in hand, opposite Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta), the image is a raw peek at Warner’s long-gestating picture, which is now well on its way to its September 2018 release. We say long-gestating because, at one point, Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood was attached at the helm, right around the time when Beyoncé was linked with the title role of Ally, a talented unknown bound for stardom.
Fresh off her show-stopping performance at Coachella 2017, Gaga is arguably the perfect fit for the part, and A Star is Born marks the artist’s first leading role in a major motion picture. Other screen credits include Machete Kills, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and a recurring role in American Horror Story. Bradley Cooper, incidentally, is also »

With production now underway on Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut A Star is Born, Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first image of the remake of the classic musical, featuring Cooper alongside co-star Lady Gaga, in her first leading role on the big screen. Check it out here…
The film sees Cooper as Jackson Maine, a country music star who is on the brink of decline when he discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). As the two begin a passionate love affair, Jack coaxes Ally into the spotlight, catapulting her to stardom. But as Ally’s career quickly eclipses his own, Jack finds it increasingly hard to handle his fading glory.
First released in 1937 with Frederic March and Janet Gaynor starring, A Star is Born has since been remade twice, with 1954’s classic featuring Judy Garland and James Mason, and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

When people say that you shouldn’t remake the classics, what they really mean is that you shouldn’t remake the classics without a good idea. George Cukor‘s 1954 film “A Star Is Born” is undoubtedly in the inner circle of Hollywood greats, but that hasn’t stopped first-time director Bradley Cooper from planning an ambitious and — let’s admit it — intriguing big screen remake. We’ve known for a while now that Cooper would be transplanting the movie to the country music scene and bringing in actress and pop star Lady Gaga for the Judy Garland role, but Warner Bros.
