This isn't the first time the duo has performed the original song live. Fans understandably went wild when Cooper showed up at one of Gaga's ENIGMA performances in Las Vegas. Getting up on stage for a rendition of 'Shallow,' Gaga was visibly moved watching her co-star singing their hit song live with her. Regardless of the number of people watching, the intimacy between the co-stars was insane. Something many had hoped would repeat itself at the Academy Awards.
Gaga has undeniably been moved by her involvement in Cooper's film. The singer took to Instagram in the weeks leading up to the Oscars ceremony with two new tattoos dedicated to her performance. “Happy Valentine’s Day. A tattoo toast to “la vie en rose” by the beautiful @winterstone my spinal cord is now a rose,” the 32-year-old wrote alongside the stunning design which spans the length of her spine.
Fans of the film will know the Édith Piaf song plays an important role in A Star Is Born. When Bradley Cooper‘s character Jackson Maine stops at a drag bar, he stumbles upon Gaga’s character Ally beautifully performing La Vie en Rose onstage and is instantly transfixed.
Gaga (real name Stephanie Giannotta) also inked the musical notes “G” and “A” on sheet lines of sheet music tattooed onto the inside of her arm - spelling out her famous moniker. As she wrote on Instagram, it's a matching tattoo with her friend and manager, Bobby Campbell, but it did first have a mistake in the form of a missing staff line. However, Gaga quickly amended the tattoo to make it accurate.
