Well, if you love Lady Gaga as much as I do then, I know that you have already watched her new documentary: Five Foot Two. If you haven’t seen it yet- watch it asap. It is truly an amazing documentary! Also, this movie is relateable because I am also Five Foot Two and if you really compare to the song- I have eyes of blue :).
It was an amazing view into her life and explains a lot- i.e. why her tour keeps cancelling dates. I found I could relate to her feelings and emotions, even though the situations were very different. Loneliness and fear or never finding someone was a big part of it. For her the fame and the achievements are the reasons she feels like guys leave in the end. They can’t handle it. For me, obviously that is not why I feel lonely. I, like her, find myself alone at night feeling lonely and thinking is this it for me? Will I ever find someone, I just have the same doubts. I guess this is what I mean: the documentary humanizes her, and I feel like this is important for people to see. It also shows that life is hard no matter what your socioeconomic status is. I think that it’s important to know that people are struggling all over, and although some people are privileged and can deal with the issue faster or at all, they still have that issue. It was also just so emotional. I cried, I laughed, I yelled- I felt all of the emotions. This latest album had so much feeling and emotion. It was a side of Lady Gaga that a lot of us have never seen. It was emotional, raw, beautiful. It was a new sound. Her documentary showed all of this and that was the best part. To see her throwing her whole self, and true self into an album was what made the documentary memorable for me.
I also just loved how the movie was filmed. The opening and end scenes with superbowl sent shivers done my spine! The music playing, the rise up into the sky- Awesome. Spoilers for those who haven’t seen it, but the baptism part was my favourite! The music, outfits, cars- it was all like a movie, but it’s just her life. What made that part stand out even more was her relationship with her family. Sometimes in Holliwood, people are famous because of their parents, or their parents force them into becoming an actress or actor and you see these sob stories of people being estranged from their families. It was awesome to see that she has such a strong family unit and how much the album meant to her family. It was like a gift to her family that album. I’m not saying theirs something wrong with famous parents, but it’s just nice to see someone who worked hard and got to where they are, but are still supported and loved so deeply and strongly.
Anyways! I guess you could say I liked the movie. 😉 What did you think of it?
