A musician helps a young singer find fame as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers-and falls in love with-struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer - until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

No, it’s not bullshit because you go into these rooms, and there’s all these fucking men in there, and they’re just staring at you, listening to your record, going, "Oh, you sound great, but you don’t look so great." You know, I had a thing when I was little. I was born with this thing in my ear, couldn’t hear. What do I wind up being? A singer, so you never know. Look, talent comes everywhere. Everybody’s talented. Bet you fucking everybody in this bar is talented in one thing or another, but having something to say and the way to say it so people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag. And unless you get out there and you try to do it, you’ll never know. That’s just the truth. If there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here, it’s to say something so people wanna hear it. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you? Yeah, I do. I don’t like it, but I understand it. Oh, I think you like it a little bit. I think I’m getting through a little bit. I can see it.

He’s never brought a girl onstage before. And it’s been a long, long time since he played like that. Well, that’s good to know. One time, my brother came home, I was playing on this upright we used to always have in our den. And I was in my own world. No one was ever home, and then he comes home to take care of my dad, who was sick. And he’s sittin’ there, and he’s looking at me. I swear to God, he looked at me like I was special or something, and it just kind of filled me up. I should’ve never told you that. I don’t know. Why? ’Cause it’s embarrassing. I don’t know. It’s so sweet. ’Cause you’re nothing like my brother, let me just say. Yeah, I don’t look like your brother? LAUGHS He’s a fucking old man, okay. My dad had me when he was 63 years old. 63 years old? And we have different mothers, so... SINGING WOLFIE: What’s that number down here? MATTY: That is how many people looked at it. Get the fuck out of here.

I haven’t even thought about drinking or anything else. We’ll see how long that lasts. Go wait downstairs. Actually, when I was in my 20’s and 30’s, I was like a crooner. As a matter of fact, a lot of people thought I was better than Sinatra. FRIENDS LAUGHING Frank Frank Sinatra? What are you writing down in here? That’s my songbook. I usually use a typewriter, but I had this idea on the bike and I didn’t wanna forget it. How do you hear it? SINGING MELODY I’m alone in my house Aren’t you excited to be home and play for all your Arizonian fans? I don’t really come back here. You avoid your home? I don’t know. It’s like the hot air and the history, I don’t know. Bought the ranch, though, I grew up on, gave it to my brother. We buried Dad there, and so I just wanted to make sure that nobody paved over his grave - or any of that kind of shit. - Is it around here? It’s not far. Why don’t we just go there? It’s nearby. WIND HOWLING ALLY: Jack? Yeah, if he shows up. These guys have been vamping out there for a fucking half an hour. It’s time to fucking get on. Don’t you get tired of being... You sold Dad’s ranch. They turned it into a fucking wind farm! I bought that for you. Where’s his grave? He washed away in a fucking storm. His grave isn’t there anymore. I told you, but you were fucking drunk. You were fucking loaded and already pissing yourself a swan song. Fuck if you shed a tear for that piece of shit you idolize for no goddamn fucking reason. All Dad ever did for you was make you his fucking drinking buddy. And you’d be right there with him if he was still alive, and you fucking know it. What did you think, that I was gonna fucking take care of it while I’m fucking cradling your ass all over the goddamn world. JACK: Yeah. That’s a good excuse. Raising a little brother, so you don’t have to deal with the fact that you were no fucking good. If I was no good, why’d you steal my fucking voice? Huh? ’Cause you had nothing to fucking say. You were too proud to sing any of the songs I ever wrote. Well, I got something to say now, pal. I’m done being your fucking errand boy. I quit. JACK: Yeah, my voice just got up on me a few months ago and another shot of steroids is better safe than sorry. Thank you for that, and yeah, we should be good. SPITS Hey. You okay? Yeah.
