Lady Gaga’s documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two is now streaming on Netflix and early reaction to the movie is good. While many people will watch the documentary that gives a raw, personal look into the pop star’s life, there’s one person who might want to make a special note to see the film: Madonna. The movie doesn’t waste time delving into Lady Gaga’s life, pain, and music, and early into the film, Gaga speaks about the media feud between Gaga and Madonna. According to Gaga, Madonna has never personally spoken to her about any issues or complaints the 80’s diva might have with her.
Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, the documentary shows us life through Gaga’s life and it isn’t as glamorous as one might first believe.
The documentary opens with fans getting a quick look at Lady Gaga as she does mundane tasks like waking up in the morning, eating, and then shows that chronic pain is something Gaga deals with on a daily basis.
Lady Gaga wrote the song “Million Reasons” for her album Joanne, and you can see her playing it for her producer for the first time. Gaga also speaks about being a woman in the music business and how some producers use a woman’s sexuality to sell music. Lady Gaga put her own spin on her sexuality to remain in control.
