On March 26, social media erupted with images of Lady Gaga forcibly kissing a woman in public. In the photo, the 1986-born singer is seen embracing the head of a middle-aged woman and passionately kissing her lips.

In reality, this scene is from the film “Joker: Folie à Deux” – the sequel to the 2019 blockbuster “Joker.” Lady Gaga takes on the role of Harleen Frances Quinzel (Harley Quinn), a criminal psychologist who becomes enamored with the notorious criminal Joker (Joaquin Phoenix).

The scene unfolds at New York City Hall. Lady Gaga is ascending the stairs when a woman calls out to her in a stern tone.

A stranger holds up a newspaper with the headline “Crazy in Love,” accompanied by a picture of Harley Quinn and Joker. Intrigued, Lady Gaga turns back, forcibly kisses, and says something to the woman before departing.

In the latest behind-the-scenes video, Lady Gaga’s appearance appears somewhat rural, with a tired, makeup-free face. Previously, the singer appeared on set with a completely different, vibrant, and Joker-esque appearance.

“Joker: Folie à Deux” marks Lady Gaga’s return to the big screen after “House of Gucci” (2021). The film, based on the true story of the Gucci fashion family murder, was considered a professional failure despite its impressive box office revenue, grossing $153.3 million worldwide.

Lady Gaga is globally renowned for her singing voice. However, her acting talent cannot be denied. In 2016, she won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series/TV Movie for her role in “American Horror Story: Hotel” (2015).

Her performance in “A Star Is Born” (2018) was also highly acclaimed, earning her nominations at prestigious awards such as the Oscars and Golden Globes. She also won the award for Best Original Song for the track “Shallow.”

Fans are hopeful that Lady Gaga will make waves with “Joker: Folie à Deux.” The 2019 film won two Oscars, including Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix. It also grossed over $1 billion globally and remains the highest-grossing R-rated film to date.
