Lady Gaga put forth a video for the A Star Is Born highlight, “I’ll Never Love Again.”
If you’ve seen A Star Is Born, you’ll know what “I’ll Never Love Again” is all about. Damn I’m about to get emotional. For those of you that haven’t escaped your lives to watch this piece of cinematic greatness, I’ll keep my mouth shut about the details.
Fortunately, the video Gaga put forth for the track doesn’t give anything away. It’s mostly scenes from the film detailing Ally and Jack’s budding romance. Damn, there goes me tearing up again.
Gaga told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that the final scene where she sings the tender ballad was inspired by some real-life tragic events from earlier in the day.
“My very dear friend Sonja died of cancer that day,” Gaga said.
“We were supposed to shoot in 30 minutes, and I left the set because her husband called me and I could hear her in the background and I just got in the car and drove. I missed her by 15 minutes. I laid with her, with her husband, and their dog, and his son. When I came back, Bradley was so gentle with me and we got through it. I performed the song.”
“All I wanted to do was sing. I’ll never forget that day. It was really a special scene, and I’ll always remember that moment.”
According to Gaga Daily, “I’ll Never Love Again” was co-written with Hillary Lindsey, who previously helped pen “Million Reasons” and “A-YO” on Joanne.
This song has quickly become one of my all-time favorite Gaga songs. Alright, now let me go cry in peace.
