Lady Gaga insisted on singing live for A Star Is Born

US pop star Lady Gaga insisted that all the songs in her first movie, A Star Is Born, including those by novice musician Bradley Cooper, were performed live. They play country music singers in the remake.

"Singing live, there really was no question," US actor Cooper, who co-stars and directs the film, told a news conference on Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"When we first met, Stefani was very adamant about it," he added, referring to Lady Gaga by her real name, Stefani Germanotta.- REUTERS
