Click here to read the full article. To get in character for “House of Gucci,” Lady Gaga spent the better part of last year inhabiting the mind, body and spirit of Patrizia Reggiani, the Italian socialite who was convicted of hiring a hitman to kill her former husband, Maurizio Gucci. Though the film wrapped production and opened in theaters last year, Gaga did not officially shed the role until Thursday at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards. “It’s hard to say goodbye to art because you learn so much about yourself,” she said, getting increasingly emotional during her lengthy, 13-minute...

Patrizia Reggiani May Have Put A Curse On Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s press junket for House of Gucci is getting campier by the week. Since the release of Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, where Gaga play Patrizia Reggiani, the infamous wife of Maurizio Gucci, we’ve heard about how Gaga voluntary wrote a secret 80-page biography of Patrizia in preparation, how she spoke in an Italian accent for 18 months, and how she had to hire an on-set psychiatric nurse to support her in her “extreme role.” Now, the singer and actor is revealing that Patrizia Gucci — who is alive and well in Italy — may have sent a “swarm of flies” to the House of Gucci set.

Lady Gaga Says She Believes Patrizia Reggiani Sent ‘Swarms of Flies’ After Her

Curse of Gucci? Lady Gaga revealed in a new interview on Tuesday (Jan. 11) that she started to think Patrizia Reggiani had it out for her by the time House of Gucci wrapped. “On the last day of filming, I was on the balcony of my apartment in Rome, and I was blasting Dean Martin singing ‘Mambo Italiano,’ and I had a cigarette hanging out of my mouth. I was Patrizia,” the superstar dished to W for the magazine’s Best Performances issue. “But I knew I had to say goodbye to her: Large swarms of flies kept following me around, and I truly began to believe that she had sent them. I was ready to let her go.”

Lady Gaga Was Plagued by ‘Large Swarms of Flies’ As Patrizia Reggiani

Maybe this just means there’s an alternate metaverse in which Lady Gaga in House of Gucci gets swarmed by flies, but it happens wherever the girls of Yellowjackets are stranded instead of in Italy. In a new interview from W magazine’s “Best Performances” spread, the ARTPOP vocalist spilled about her last day of filming the Ridley Scott–directed 2021 movie, saying that — on her apartment “balcony” in Rome while holding a cigarette by her mouth and “blasting Dean Martin singing ‘Mambo Italiano’” — “large swarms of flies” would not stop stalking her. (Okay, fan behavior, slay!) “I was Patrizia,” the “rah-rah bitch” continued. “But I knew I had to say goodbye to her: Large swarms of flies kept following me around, and I truly began to believe that she had sent them. I was ready to let her go.” Now, that isn’t confirmed, nor is it likely to be true — unless Reggiani truly is Lottie from Yellowjackets — but at least we can confirm Gaga deserves an Oscar for her campaign for an Oscar. Anyway, cc’ing Mike Pence.

Where is the infamous Patrizia Reggiani now? Maurizio Gucci’s murderer portrayed in House of Gucci had a lavish life in prison and surprisingly to date, Gucci pays her $1.47 million a year.

The House of Gucci puts the spotlight on the members of the Gucci family and their power struggle to control the Italian fashion brand, but the true star of the biopic crime drama is no other than Patrizia Reggiani, played by the talented Lady Gaga, whose ambition and descent into madness led to the murder of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci.
