In just a few short weeks, little monsters and Pinot Grigio girls wondering how Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta — alias Lady Gaga — spends her day will wonder no more. The first trailer for Gaga’s upcoming Netflix documentary has finally made its debut, and if the minute-long teaser is any indication, the full doc will give viewers an extremely intimate look into the pop star’s whirlwind life.
The action-packed promo for Gaga: Five Foot Two starts with a jarring series of scenes in which Lady Gaga walks from a quiet hallway to the center of a pack of screaming fans, then back to a silent car, checking the box right away on the “public vs. private persona” juxtaposition required in every artist-focused documentary. Much of the rest of the clip revolves around her latest album, Joanne: She hangs out with Florence + the Machine’s Florence Welch — with whom she recorded “Hey Girl,” a song off the album — gets a tattoo in honor of the album, and causes a scene when she brings her film crew inside a Walmart to buy a physical copy of Joanne.
There are also plenty of scenes from before and during this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, which Gaga headlined. She’s shown running around a dressing room in a pink football helmet and performing her now-iconic jump off the Super Bowl stage. But don’t worry: Lady Gaga also enjoys her fair share of downtime, in which she makes phone calls where she declares that she’s “gonna fight like f—ing hell for them to f—ing love this,” and suggests that she and her friends “get stoned in Grandma’s car.” You know, just normal pop star things.
The 31-year-old previously spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the premise of the doc, which was produced by Heather Parry of Live Nation Productions. “[You will see] a woman who’s an artist, creates all day, thinks all day, and also has the experiences [as] both an artist and a celebrity. Those two things collide for me, and you’ll see how they’re conflicted,” she said. “I am 100 percent at my lowest common denominator. Nobody [is] explaining what I am or putting a label on me as a female artist in this film. That’s what this documentary is about.”
Gaga: Five Foot Two premieres on Netflix on September 22.
