The World Has Finally Seen It, This Is The Real Gaga

With the Oscar night this week, there are some memorable moments that are worth to remember. Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” won best original song at Academy Awards, which also means her first Oscar. Gaga had performed the song from “A Star Is Born” as a duet with Bradley Cooper a short time earlier, in a riveting performance that earned a standing ovation.


在第91届奥斯卡颁奖礼上,嘎嘎(Lady Gaga)捧起了小金人,动容地说:「重要的不是输赢,而是永不放弃,如果你有一个梦想,就为之奋斗吧!不管你被击倒多少次,被拒绝多少次,更重要的是你重新站起来,继续追梦!」


这一次,全世界都看清楚了她的脸,比她脖子上那条钻链还闪耀。嘎嘎这次凭电影《一个明星的诞生》中的主题曲《Shallow》拿的是最佳原创歌曲奖。她同时还入围了最佳女主角提名。


之前靠夸张形像出位的那个Lady Gaga,终于用实力完成了蜕变和救赎。这次她以淡妆平实的样子出现在了片中。很多人第一眼压根没认出她来,也有很多人说,第一次发现素颜的嘎嘎这么好看。


这种偏见,是嘎嘎出道之初给自己贴上的标签,也曾是她的铠甲。


事实上,嘎嘎音乐上的能力一直有目共睹。她从小就接受了良好的教育,5岁便能熟练演奏钢琴,13岁时写下自己的第一首钢琴叙事曲,17岁便被纽约大学艺术学院提前录取。


但嘎嘎的人生并非一帆风顺。她曾坦言,自己从大学退学后在酒吧弹钢琴,根本没人注意到她,直到她扮上夸张的妆容,穿上性感的服装。她高中时曾遭受霸凌,19岁的时候遭遇了一名音乐制作人的性侵。


更让她痛苦的是每次阶段性的成功之时,总是伴随着巨大的失去,「我卖出一千万专辑的时候,马特(男友)离开了我。卖出三千万张的时候,我失去了卢克(恋人)。得到拍电影的机会时,泰勒(未婚夫)和我分手了,这就像是个死循环。」


这个死循环在《一个明星的诞生》拍摄到尾声时还发作了一次。当拍摄最后一场戏时,嘎嘎突然接到电话,得知挚友Sonja病重垂危。她立即 请假赶回去,却还是没能见上最后一面。


在91届奥斯卡的颁奖礼上,嘎嘎还和布莱德利联手带来了《Shallow》的表演。颁奖礼的运镜也很有心,从舞台后方缓缓推进,记录下工作人员为钢琴装台、嘎嘎和布莱德利的携手上台——真的很像电影里的音乐节演出现场。



在第91屆奧斯卡頒獎禮上,嘎嘎(Lady Gaga)捧起了小金人,動容地說:「重要的不是輸贏,而是永不放棄,如果你有一個夢想,就為之奮鬥吧!不管你被擊倒多少次,被拒絕多少次,更重要的是你重新站起來,繼續追夢!」


這一次,全世界都看清楚了她的臉,比她脖子上那條鑽鏈還閃耀。嘎嘎這次憑電影《一個明星的誕生》中的主題曲《Shallow》拿的是最佳原創歌曲獎。她同時還入圍了最佳女主角提名。


之前靠誇張形像出位的那個Lady Gaga,終於用實力完成了蛻變和救贖。這次她以淡妝平實的樣子出現在了片中。很多人第一眼壓根沒認出她來,也有很多人說,第一次發現素顏的嘎嘎這麼好看。


這種偏見,是嘎嘎出道之初給自己貼上的標籤,也曾是她的鎧甲。


事實上,嘎嘎音樂上的能力一直有目共睹。她從小就接受了良好的教育,5歲便能熟練演奏鋼琴,13歲時寫下自己的第一首鋼琴敘事曲,17歲便被紐約大學藝術學院提前錄取。


但嘎嘎的人生並非一帆風順。她曾坦言,自己從大學退學後在酒吧彈鋼琴,根本沒人注意到她,直到她扮上誇張的妝容,穿上性感的服裝。她高中時曾遭受霸凌,19歲的時候遭遇了一名音樂製作人的性侵。


更讓她痛苦的是每次階段性的成功之時,總是伴隨著巨大的失去,「我賣出一千萬專輯的時候,馬特(男友)離開了我。賣出三千萬張的時候,我失去了盧克(戀人)。得到拍電影的機會時,泰勒(未婚夫)和我分手了,這就像是個死循環。」


這個死循環在《一個明星的誕生》拍攝到尾聲時還發作了一次。當拍攝最後一場戲時,嘎嘎突然接到電話,得知摯友Sonja病重垂危。她立即 請假趕回去,卻還是沒能見上最後一面。


在91屆奧斯卡的頒獎禮上,嘎嘎還和布萊德利聯手帶來了《Shallow》的表演。頒獎禮的運鏡也很有心,從舞台後方緩緩推進,記錄下工作人員為鋼琴裝台、嘎嘎和布萊德利的攜手上台——真的很像電影裡的音樂節演出現場。


English translation:

At the 91st Oscar Awards, Lady Gaga won an Oscar and said with emotion: "The important thing is not to win or lose, but to never give up. If you have a dream, fight for it! No matter how many times have you been knocked down, how many times you have been rejected, the more important thing is that you stand up again and continue to pursue your dreams!"

This time, the whole world saw her face more than the diamond chain on her neck. This time, Lady Gaga got an Oscar for the Best Original Song award through the theme song "Shallow" from the movie "A Star is Born". She was also nominated for the best actress nomination.

The Lady Gaga, who had previously relied on the exaggerated image, finally completed the transformation and redemption with strength. This time she appeared in the film using a light makeup. Many people didn't recognize her at first, and many people said that the first time they found the no-makeup Gaga looks so good.

This kind of prejudice is the label that Gaga posted to herself at the beginning of her debut, and it was once her armor.

In fact, Gaga's ability to sing music has always been obvious. She received a good education from an early age. She was able to play the piano at the age of five. She wrote her first piano narrative at the age of 13, and was admitted to the New York University School of Art at the age of 17.

But my life is not easy. She once admitted that she had played the piano in the bar after she dropped out of college. No one noticed her until she put on her exaggerated makeup and put on sexy clothes. She suffered from bullying in high school and was sexually assaulted by a music producer when she was 19 years old.

What makes her more painful is that every time she succeeds in stages, she is always accompanied by a huge loss. "When I sold 10 million albums, Matt (boyfriend) left me. Selling 30 million copies. At the time, I lost Luke (lover). When I got the chance to make a movie, Taylor (fiancé) broke up with me, it was like an infinite loop."

This infinite loop also occurred once in the end of "A Star Is Born". When the last scene was filmed, she suddenly received a call and learned that her friend Sonja was seriously dying. She immediately rushed back, but still could not see her for the last time.

At the 91st Oscars awards ceremony, she also teamed up with Bradley to bring the performance of Shallow. The camerawork for the award-winning ceremony was also very heart-warming, slowly advancing from the rear of the stage, recording the staff to place the piano, Gaga and Bradley's hand in hand entering the stage– really like the music festival scene in the movie.
