Massive success and critical acclaim can change a person, which could explain why Lady Gaga and Christian Carino’s relationship ended before it reached the altar. The New York native addressed these changes in a November 2018 interview with Variety, talking about the lasting impact of her role in A Star Is Born. “I feel Ally inside of me,” she said about her character. “I wonder how long she’ll stay. Or if she’ll be in there forever.” Wow, it sounds like Gaga took method acting to a whole new level.
Taking things a step further, the entertainer admitted that she discovered a life-altering “truth” in the months after the film wrapped. “This has been a very transformative time for me,” she said. “As an artist, there’s always a feeling of ‘Am I good enough? Am I making something honest? Am I making something true?’ There is a sort of stagnant sadness in me, wondering if I’m enough. Today I did not see that. I saw something different. I saw a clarity. I saw a truth.”
We can’t help but wonder if that “truth” played a role in her breakup from Carino. Whatever happened, it sounds big.
