Gaga: Five Foot Two is a recent Netflix Original Documentary that brings the viewer into the life and career of Lady Gaga during the year leading up to her latest album Joanne and her Superbowl performance. It shows all aspects of her life and brings the viewer behind the scenes of one of the greatest pop superstars of our era. Viewers are brought into the studio with Gaga and hear the original recordings of many of her songs on her latest album. When I watched the documentary for the first time I was brought to tears many times. At one-point Lady Gaga goes to visit her Grandmother to learn more about her Aunt, Joanne Germanotta, who died at age 19 from Lupus before Gaga was born. Viewers are also brought into some of Gaga’s health problems with chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia. I enjoyed seeing the behinds the scene life of one of my favorite artists. I loved watching her Superbowl halftime show and it was cool to see what went into that before the version that I saw on TV. I think that Lady Gaga is an amazing artist and her dedication to her music and her fans despite being in chronic pain is remarkable. The documentary shows her meeting fans and you can really see how much of an impact she has on people’s lives. I would recommend watching this documentary if you like Lady Gaga or seeing a behind the scenes look at all of the work that it takes to make a studio album. It is also very interesting and shows an in-depth look at the behind the scenes of a Superbowl halftime show, I think this is the first time a documentary has shown such an in depth look at the preparations for one.
