The singer took home the gold for the best original song this Sunday night, gaining recognition for her beautiful work on "Shallow" alongside Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt. And that was just the icing on the cake for Gaga's scintillating night: she also pulled off an incredible performance with Bradley Cooper and gave a truly inspiring speech when she got on the stage to accept her award. The love, light, and exhilaration continued when the group headed backstage. But, the most startling moment of the press room interview was when Ronson described the time they wrote the award-winning song in question.
Ronson told the press they'd had an abundance of Jameson that day, and they were just lazing around and trying to figure out a new song. Gaga was on the piano, naturally, trying out different chords, rhythms, and melodies. Ronson said a hush came over the room and Gaga sang the first line: "Tell me something, girl, are you happy in this modern world?" Ronson said, "All of my hairs stood on end . . . it felt like someone hugged my soul." Such is the magic of the lyrics, stitched into the fabric of the song, that made it strong enough to grab an Oscar.
She elaborated a bit on something she said during her acceptance speech: that it had been a hard road, and she worked really f*cking hard to get here. "The truth is, people see what they see on the outside . . . I was so determined to live my dreams, and yet there was so much in the way. There were so many things I did not anticipate — that broke me, that tortured me, that traumatized me — and I think sometimes . . . people think it comes easy to us." She continued: "Every single person on this stage has been through so much. We are friends, we have worked on ourselves in life, we have tried to get through the torment of this industry and being artists. And the truth is that this is very hard work, and it is not for the faint of heart. But I would not want to imply that anyone in the world is faint of heart."
