Lady Gaga hopes to play Amy Winehouse in an upcoming movie about the late singer’s life. According to U.K. tabloid Daily Star, Lady Gaga wants to play Amy and thinks that this will be the perfect role to launch her into the acting world. A source said, “Lady Gaga worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen. She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude. Gaga’s been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career. Gaga’s management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy’s untimely death. But there’s only ever been one role she wants and that’s to play Amy.”Lady Gaga was particuliarly grief stricken by the news of Amy’s death. The singer had admitted that she was so sad about Amy’s death that she could not speak for 48 hours. Gaga also mentioned that Amy held a particuliar place in her heart since when she was starting out she was often mistaken for Amy.
I actually think Lady Gaga playing this role would be a pretty good fit. Let’s just hope she doesn’t take on the drug habit Amy had!
