The pop superstar, who first skyrocketed to fame in 2008 with her debut single Just Dance, told Daily Star Online: “I was terrible at auditions.

“I just went for commercials and even to play extras, but I was terrible at acting in auditions. 

“I couldn’t make it as an actor, so I went for it as a singer songwriter.”

Despite calling it quits, the New Yorker admits inside she still knew she was always going to make it some way.

When asked about her upcoming Las Vegas residency Enigma, she replied: “Even back in the day, yes, I always thought… well I always hoped, I would have a Vegas residency.

“But did I think I’d be this famous? You know what, no.”

When asked how set design and costume planning is going for the Park Theatre show, which kicks off in December, Gaga replied: “You’ll have to wait and see,” before giving a cheeky wink.

In A Star is Born Gaga plays Ally, a wannabe singer who has all but given up on her dream of hitting the big time. 

Comparing herself to her character, Gaga continued: “At the beginning of the film she is bullied in high school, she feels like she isn’t pretty enough, she feels like she can’t make it, she feels like she can’t sing her own songs. 

“With myself I was very different, I wanted to go out and be a songwriter, be a musician, I would go bankrupt before I got a city job… this is not Ally, as you will see in the film.”

Starring alongside Gaga is actor, writer and film producer Bradley Cooper.

Gushing over the 43-year-old, the Joanne singer said: “I feel like as soon as I heard him sing that he played a rock star and I’m a really hard judge.

“I saw the passion in his eyes. 

“Bradley is a friend for life. He is an incredible human being.

“Not only did I get to make an amazing film, but I got to witness such a masterful artist. He is so incredible.

“He does it all, it was just a humbling experience for me really.”
