Clap your hands if you're a little monster. No, not a small, malevolent being, but a fan who worships at the altar of Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. If that's the case, you're probably wondering how you can star in Lady Gaga's movie if you're at Coachella, since that's a thing that could actually happen. On Sunday, April 16, festival goers with access to the Coachella app learned that they may have the chance to appear in a scene in A Star Is Born, a movie Bradley Cooper is directing and Gaga is starring in. You could be living, breathing, and emoting next to your idol, and so, if you're at the festival, I suggest you carpe the heck out of this diem and sign up.
The movie is a musical in which Cooper will play a movie star who helps a young singer/actor (Gaga) find fame while plagued by alcoholism. It's based on the 1937 movie of the same name, which is such a hit that it's already been remade twice (once in 1954 with Judy Garland taking the female lead and once in 1976 with Barbra Streisand).
Check your diaries to ensure you're free, because filming will take place on Tuesday, April 18, and Wednesday, April 19, and the scene they're shooting will allegedly be of a country concert. The announcement has some specific clothing ideas:
So if you're 18 or older, you've got $10 to donate to a great cause, and you're not so attached to your pink Joanne hat that you can't leave a friend to babysit it for a while, you should do this thing.
Other information that might be relevant includes that they'll be shooting whatever the weather is, so you need to be OK with standing in the rain if that's the deal that day. Also, presumably for confidentiality reasons, your phone will be locked into a Yondr pouch so it's with you, but you can't film or record audio or take pictures.
Ready? Take a deep breath and click on the link in the tweet below.
Then you'll just need to head over to the "Purchase Admission" section, and buy tickets for whichever day you're hoping to be filmed on.
Best of luck, Little Monsters. I'm already looking forward to seeing you in a movie scene next year.
