Weird that Lady Gaga is making a documentary. She’s so shy. Seriously though, what’s weird is that it’s taken her this long. Perhaps she’s been waiting all this time for the right person to tell her story–someone equally as radical, eccentric, and, let’s be honest, a little, um, batshit nuts as she is. Naturally that person is her BFF Terry Richardson.
Gaga made the announcement on Twitter: “Merry Christmas little monsters! Terry Richardson @Terry_World is making a #LadyGagaMOVIE documenting my life, the creation of ARTPOP + you!” Cue the sound of a billion hysterical screams.
You may remember one time Richardson photographed a topless Gaga hanging out in a bathroom with Donatella Versace. While he’s never made a full-length film before, he has dabbled in music videos (including a cameo appearance in 30 Second to Mars’ “Hurricane” video), which is kind of like having a résumé. Should be interesting, to say the least. [Rolling Stone]
