It’s been just under a month since Lady Gaga and fiance Taylor Kinney broke up and it would seem this is the best thing to happen to the star in years. Gaga has plans to take pretty much the entire world by storm in the next year and that’s totally fine by us. Get ready for a lot more Gaga, and not just music.
We’ve known for a while that there’s a new Gaga album in the works (yay!) but yesterday we got confirmation of when we’ll get that first auditory glimpse at the new tunes. She announced via one of those sprawling, multi-post (12 to be exact) Instagram pics that her first single off the album (“Perfect Illusion”) will be available some time in September. The pop-art-esque colour scheme of the posts is all we really have to go on so take from that what you will. Whatever happens, we’re sure it’s going to be great.

Second on the docket for Gaga is a little family time, but this is no family vacation. Little known fact: Lady Gaga’s parents own an Italian-American restaurant called Joanne Trattoria in New York. Gaga’s father, Joe Germanotta, is currently working on a cookbook inspired by the scenes and recipes in the restaurant. While we can assume Gaga won’t be involved in any actual cooking (then again, we wouldn’t be surprised if that was another hidden talent), she is penning the foreword for the book.
Seeing as we haven’t had any kind of autobiography from Gaga yet, this looks like it could be a pretty interesting glimpse into her early life. We imagine a little Baby Gaga making homemade pasta and cooking with her family. How adorable!
Gaga’s latest project looks like it’s going to be her biggest (and most lucrative) yet. She is set to star in Bradley Cooper‘s remake of the 1954 movie-musical classic, A Star is Born. In case you are unfamiliar, the original A Star is Born starred none other than Judy Garland and brought you songs like “The Man That Got Away” (if you don’t remember that, you must at least remember that the song/movie played in the background during one Lorelai and Luke reunion on Gilmore Girls). Oh, and did we mention Cooper is also starring in the movie? That’s a pretty good cast already, we think. Find out more about this project in the video above.
The film isn’t the only acting Gaga is going to be doing this year either. She is set to be in the next season of American Horror Story, and why not? The last time, she won a Golden Globe. What’s one more project, anyway?
Basically, Lady Gaga is proving to everyone what a fierce independent woman she is just by being herself. The only problem with all these projects is how long we have to wait to get our hands on them. At least September is only a few weeks away. Bring on the Gaga!
