Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have been at the Venice International Film Festival for the premiere of their eagerly-awaited film A Star Is Born.
The film, directed by Cooper, has already received stellar reviews by film critics, and allegedly received an 8-minute standing ovation following the screening.
During the film’s press conference, however, many couldn’t help but notice the name cards of “B. Cooper” and “L. Gaga”. Yes, you read that correctly. L. Gaga.
It didn’t take long for the trusty Twittersphere to create revised versions of the iconic “L. Gaga” name card, with new iterations like “Q. Elizabeth”, “M. Adonna” and “M. Loaf” showing us just how flawed the name card logic truly was.
Check out some of the groundbreaking responses below. Thank god for the internet.

They probably asked the intern to do it. Either way, being referred to as “L. Gaga” is truly what dreams are made of.
A Star Is Born comes to Australian cinemas October 18. The film already has a ripe ol’ critic rating of 95 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. The Guardian gave it 5 stars, saying “Bradley Cooper directs and co-stars in this outrageously watchable update of the love story doomed by shifting fame.”
So, yes, you will need to cancel your entire plans for October.
Side note: how unbelievable is Gaga’s arrival into Venice by boat? We stan a deserving legend.
