How Shangela Steals the Show in 'A Star Is Born'


In the pivotal scene, he helps introduce Lady Gaga ’s character Ally, who sings a rousing rendition of “La Vie En Rose,” to Bradley Cooper ’s Jack, setting them afloat on a course of love — and myriad concert performances.


The Paris, Texas, native, whose acting credits include stints on “Glee” and “2 Broke Girls,” touts the Cooper-directed film for “having a very inclusive message.”


Shangela: “To be able to work with people like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper , you really want to pull up and make sure you’re putting on your A game.


“They had a great wardrobe stylist for the set, but she was very open to us bringing some of our own pieces or having feedback on the look, because she wanted us to be comfortable in the role.


And for this particular bar, as a drag owner — and I’ve worked in a million clubs, honey, so I know — you want to establish yourself as the boss.


So she has short hair, which in the film, they refer to as my ‘bus driver’ wig, which seems to always get a fun laugh in the theater, which is cool.
