Lady Gaga is currently filming A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper, and—judging from the above photo of them kissing on set—it's poised to be your new fave. The film is slated for a September 2018 release, and is about an aspiring musician who's made into a star by an aging rocker who she happens to fall in love with. And in a surprising move, Gaga will be using her real name in the credits.

Variety explains that Gaga herself chose to use Stefani Germanotta as her credit in A Star Is Born, with a source explaining that "there's something appropriate about Gaga being credited as Stefani in the role of an unknown ingenue being discovered and turned into a star."
