Lady Gaga's Story Might Become a Lifetime Movie

"We're not sure how we feel about this, but there's no denying it's happening: Lifetime is developing “Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story,” a made-for-TV biopic about the star.

The story is apparently going to focus more on her start, rather than her current reign, according a casting notice for the lead role, which says the film will cover her from ages 16 to 22. Deadline reports that the script is being written by Norman Snider (Casino Jack) and is based on the book Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga, written by Maureen Callahan of the New York Post in 2010.

Gaga, of course, is not involved in this venture at all, so whether or not the movie will even feature her music is unknown. We're not sure how she would react to her life being shaped by the sob-story factory over at Lifetime, but the tone of the film is reportedly going to be an uplifting “love letter” to the performer.

The romanticized version of her story is made-for-TV perfection: a born-and-raised New York girl from a close, well-adjusted family dreams of becoming a singer. Reportedly bullied in high school, she chases her dream at NYU, singing folksy tunes in coffee shops and bars. Eventually she drops out to pursue her music, gets adopted into the underground life of burlesque-type shows and starts parading around in her bra and panties with Lady Starlight, much to the dismay of her modest Italian Catholic father. Fast forward to some down days with drugs, dropped record deals, and the climactic turning-point of the movie—a dramatic scene in which Gaga's boyfriend tells her she'll never succeed.
We all know how that story turns out. (...)"
