A Star is Born is the movie of the fall. Not just for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s award-worthy performances, but the movie musical also features some familiar faces from the world of RuPaul’s Drag Race—including the ultimate professional Shangela.
In the film Shangela runs the drag bar where Ally (Lady Gaga’s character) sings—and eventually meets Jackson Maine (Cooper). Since Shangie shares scenes with Gaga—in a small dressing room!—you know she has got some stories from the set.
In an exclusive new video watch as Shangela spills the tea on acting with Gaga, how she landed the role, and what Mother Monster whispered to her on the A Star is Born red carpet.
A Star is Born comes out in Australia next week on October 18th.
Shangela is returning to Australia in just over a month to bring us her one woman show Shangela Is Shook! Most cities have sold out and we’re down to our last few tickets everywhere else, so you’ll have to snatch those tickets soon before they’re gone!
