The pop star turned actress officially announced that she will star in the upcoming film, “A Star is Born.” After gushing about her excitement to work alongside Hollywood mainstay, Bradley Cooper, who will both direct and star in the picture, GaGa revealed that some scenes have already been filmed–on the grounds of the Coachella site.
