Lady Gaga Screams in Joy after Receiving 3 Grammy Nominations for 'A Star Is Born'
Lady Gaga received three Grammy nominations for "A Star is Born" soundtrack on Wednesday, and she shared her unique feelings of celebration with her fans.
Last year, the single "Shallow" from the soundtrack won Best Song Written for a Visual Medium and Best Pop Duo at the Grammys, but the soundtrack itself only got released after the 2018 deadline of October 1. Having had to wait a year, it was worth it.
"I am overwhelmed with joy that our work on A Star Is Born continues to be recognized over a year after it was released. THANK U @recordingacademy for the 3 Grammy nominations today!!" Lady Gaga wrote.
This year's three nominations are for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Digital Media, Song of the Year for "Always Remember Us This Way," and for Best Song Written for Visual Media for "I'll Never Love Again."

I didn’t get to say everything I wanted to say last night when we won, I was so overcome with emotion and of course wanted to share the mic with my co-writers. We are all so grateful Bradley loved “Shallow,” sang his heart out live, and truly the song would not be revered as it is without the brilliant film and moment Bradley created and the way he directed the moment and collaborated with us on how it would eventually be given to the world. Thank you B, and thank you Warner Bros. Thank you HFPA, we are beyond grateful. 📸 @gettyentertainment
LADY GAGA'S REACTION
Lady Gaga's thanks to the recording academy came alongside a video she posted of herself with the producer of "Shallow," Ben Rice, as they celebrated finishing the soundtrack.

In the video, Lady Gaga and Ben are standing in a parking lot when asked how it feels having completed the soundtrack. Ben and Lady Gaga gave each other one look before they both let out a scream of victory. And so Lady Gaga finished off her post by explaining the reason for choosing that specific moment as she wrote:
"This is me and my engineer, and co-producer of “Shallow”, Ben Rice on July 9, 2018 when we turned in the final master for the soundtrack. And it’s the exact same mood that I have today finding out we were nominated for best compilation soundtrack, song of the year, and best song written for visual media! I love you all, thank you for the love and support!"

LADY GAGA SPARKLES FOR HER FANS
Fans are also going Gaga, but for her new lipstick. With the holidays around the corner, Lady Gaga just debuted a brand-new "Sparkle Lipstick" through her makeup line, Haus Laboratories. The new lipstick is a bright, shimmering red named "Burlesque," and at $20 a pop, they are literally flying off the digital shelves.
The item is already Amazon's top-selling lipstick after making its debut on Tuesday, and forms a part of the holiday collection "Cosmic Love." Other products in the collection include liquid shimmer power, a lip liner, soft pink lip gloss, and four metallic cream eyeshadows.
Because the specific "true red" is said to flatter every skin tone universally, Haus Laboratories only brought out that one shade that offers "one-swipe coverage and glittering shine."
Early in October marked the first anniversary of the film "A Star Is Born," and Lady Gaga's chemistry both on and off the set had fans addicted to their every move.
In celebration of the milestone day, Lady Gaga proudly held out her six-time platinum plaque for the album while her pink hair added the necessary Gaga flair.
