Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ film premiere struck by lightning

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga walk the red carpet for “A Star Is Born” in the 75th Venice Film Festival


Lady Gaga’s world premiere of “A Star Is Born” has taken the Venice Film Festival by storm, literally.

About halfway through the screening of Bradley Cooper’s music drama, the theatre was apparently struck by lightning, which blew up the projector bulb, according to sources close to the producers.

The delay lasted about 20 minutes.

Lady Gaga could be seen chuckling and blowing kisses to the audience as the festival technicians scrambled to a solution for the problem.

LADY GAGA IS BREATHTAKING. Literally. I’m in Venice for the film festival and was sitting in the audience at the premiere of “A Star is Born’ and the theater was just struck by lightning—no joke—and damaged the projection. And now we are all waiting for the start. ⚡️??
