    AceShowbiz – Lady GaGa and Adam Driver go high-fashion in their first official look from Ridley Scott’s upcoming film “House of Gucci”. The two stars look posh as they portray Patrizia Reggiani and her husband Maurizio Gucci, the former head of the Gucci fashion house, respectively, in the crime film.
    GaGa made use of her social media account on Tuesday, March 9 to share the photo from the biopic. In the image, the “A Star Is Born” actress is dressed in a black turtleneck and black pants while accessorizing with a black belt, gold necklaces, earrings and bracelets as well as a white fur hat.
    The Golden Globe-winning actress stands next to her co-star, Driver, who contrasts her look in a beige turtleneck sweater with white salopettes with the sleeves tied around his waist. He also wears wide-rimmed black glasses as he smiles with his arm around his on-screen leading lady.
    “Signore e Signora Gucci #HouseOfGucci,” so GaGa captioned the image taken with the backdrop of the Italian Alps. It translates into “Mr. and Mrs. Gucci.”

    “House of Gucci” tells the real-life account of the tumultuous Gucci family fashion dynasty and the murder of Maurizio, the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci. Patrizia, the ex-wife of Maurizio, was tried and convicted of orchestrating her ex-husband’s assassination on the steps of his office in 1995. She served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016.
    The movie is scripted by Roberto Bentivegna, based on the Sara Gay Forden book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed”. Production on the film began in February, with Scott serving as director. He is also producing the pic with Giannina Scott.
    The movie has additionally enlisted Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Jack Huston, Reeve Carney and Jeremy Irons in the cast, with Camille Cottin being added in January. The movie is scheduled to be released in theaters across the U.S. on November 24.

    Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker Recalls Being Shot and Cradling ‘Guardian Angel’ Dog

    AdvertisementContinue reading the main storySupported byContinue reading the main storyLady Gaga’s Dog Walker Recalls Being Shot and Cradling ‘Guardian Angel’ DogRyan Fischer wrote on Instagram about his “recovery from a very close call with death.”Ryan Fischer posted this image of himself on Instagram in 2017.Credit…Ben AlfonsoMarch 1, 2021Lady Gaga’s dog walker recounted in a vivid Instagram post on Monday his frantic thoughts in the moments after he was shot in Los Angeles last week by two men who stole two of the singer’s French bulldogs and left him in a pool of blood.Referring to Asia, a third dog owned by the singer, the dog walker, Ryan Fischer, wrote that as “blood poured from my gun shot wound, an angel trotted over and laid next to me. My panicked screams calmed as I looked at her, even though it registered that the blood pooling around her tiny body was my own.”Mr. Fischer, who did not immediately respond to a message on Instagram, wrote that he was “still in recovery from a very close call with death” and “will write and say more later.”The Feb. 24 shooting took place around 9:40 p.m. local time as Mr. Fischer was walking north on Sierra Bonita Avenue in Hollywood, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.As of Monday, the Police Department had not announced an arrest in the case, nor released information about the woman who returned the dogs, unharmed, to the police two days later.“Investigators are still working the case, and the investigation is still ongoing,” Capt. Stacy D. Spell, a spokeswoman for the department, said in an email on Monday. She also referred to a statement the police released last week, saying they would not discuss the woman who returned the dogs, nor the location of where they were found, “due to the active criminal investigation and for her safety.”A report by The Associated Press on Friday quoted Capt. Jonathan Tippett of the department as saying that the woman who took the dogs to the police station appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the attack.Mr. Fischer’s Instagram posts, which accompanied pictures of him in a hospital bed, included praise for family and friends, as well as for emergency personnel and health care workers: “you literally saved my life and helped me take newborn walks, I can’t thank you enough.”What exactly led to the attack is not clear. Most of what is publicly known comes from surveillance video from a nearby home.On it, Mr. Fischer is seen walking on a sidewalk, which is partly obscured by a fence, as a white car pulls up next to him. Two men exit the car and tussle with Mr. Fischer. He screams repeatedly and moments later, a gunshot is heard. “Help me, I’ve been shot,” Mr. Fischer can be heard saying just after the car drives away. “I’ve been shot. Oh my god.”Mr. Fischer recalled that exact moment, writing on Instagram, “I cradled Asia as best I could, thanked her for all the incredible adventures we’d been on together, apologized that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself.”“I looked backed at my guardian angel. I smiled at her shaking form, thankful that at least she would be ‘okay,’” he added.When emergency medical workers treated Mr. Fischer, he was cradling the dog, according to KABC-TV, which had a helicopter over the scene.Officer Jeff Lee, also a spokesman for the Police Department, said last week that a semiautomatic handgun was believed used in the attack.The once-stolen dogs are named Koji and Gustav and belong to Lady Gaga, who had offered a $500,000 reward for information about them, a representative for the singer said. Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, announced in 2016 that she had added a black-and-white puppy to her family of dogs, which included two named Koji and Asia.At the time, she named the puppy “cowpig and moopig” before naming it Gustav. She has featured the dogs in her social media posts over the years.In his Instagram post on Monday, Mr. Fischer included a message to Lady Gaga: “your babies are back and the family is whole… we did it!”AdvertisementContinue reading the main story More

    Lady GaGa and Jennifer Lopez to Perform at Joe Biden's Inauguration

    WENN

    The ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker is expected to sing the national anthem while J.Lo is tapped to perform at the upcoming presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C.

    Jan 15, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Lady GaGa will sing the national anthem and Jennifer Lopez will perform at Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.
    The inauguration committee unveiled on Twitter, early on Thursday (14Jan), that Gaga would perform America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”, at the event, being held in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday 20 January (21) to mark Biden and Harris being made President and Vice President of the United States respectively.
    Gaga has been a vocal campaigner for Biden, urging people to vote for the then-Democratic candidate during a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, drive-in rally last November (20).
    While Lopez, another active Biden campaigner, is set to join the likes of Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, and Jon Bon Jovi, also performing at the inauguration which will be televised across multiple channels in the U.S. Amanda Gorman will give a poetry reading, the tweet said.
    Gaga and Lopez are the latest stars to be confirmed for the event, following news that Tom Hanks will host the star-studded prime-time special entitled “Celebrating America”.

    Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO, Dr Tony Allen, said, “This inauguration presents a unique opportunity to spotlight the resilience and spirit of an America United.”
    “We have witnessed countless heroes this past year step up to the frontlines and serve their fellow Americans, so we are telling their stories, spreading their collective light, and celebrating the best of our country and its people with this prime-time program.”
    “Our first priority is safety – so while many of us will be watching safely from our homes, we are creating real moments of connection that highlight a new inclusive American era of leadership that works for and represents all Americans.”
    TV networks have previously broadcasted concerts and other performances hosted by inaugural committees, and the special is effectively replacing that coverage.
    The event will also stream on the committee’s YouTube and social media channels, Amazon Prime Video, Twitch, and Fox’s NewsNOW.
