Ellen DeGeneres Plays a Yodeling Kid Version of Lady Gaga in ‘A Star Is Born’ Parody
So, in typical DeGeneres fashion, she whipped up her own parody version of the film’s trailer, and well, you just need to see it.
DeGeneres takes over Lady Gaga’s role of Ally in the fictitious trailer but puts her own quirky spin on it. Instead of a New York open mic singer, DeGeneres plays a musically inclined cowgirl who bears a closer resemblance to the yodeling kid than “Goddess Gaga.” But it’s not just “Ally’s” washboard instrument skills, strange waddle dance or cowboy hat that strike Jackson Maine’s (Bradley Cooper) fancy: She also has the voice of an angel (BTW, it’s really Gaga’s voice).
As expected, it’s the parody performance of the year.
