Lady Gaga reacts to Patrizia Reggiani's criticism over her ‘House of Gucci’ role

While there are still weeks left before the release of Ridley Scott's crime biopic House of Gucci, Gaga already has fans excited as she soaks up most of the spotlight. Though the performance is already attracting eager viewers, there's one person who has not been applauding Gaga: Patrizia herself. "I am rather annoyed at the fact that Lady Gaga is playing me in the new Ridley Scott film without having had the consideration and sensibility to come and meet me," she told ANSA, an Italian wire service. "I only felt that I could truly do this story justice if I approached it with the eye of a curious woman who was interested in possessing a journalistic spirit so that I could read between the lines of what was happening in the film's scenes," Lady Gaga told British Vogue. "Meaning that nobody was going to tell me who Patrizia Gucci was. Not even Patrizia Gucci." She embodied the infamous woman – who served nearly two decades in prison for hiring a hit man to murder her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci – by dyeing her hair dark and immersing herself in an accent.
