Halsey will make an appearance in the upcoming A Star Is Born remake.

The pop star announced on Twitter that she would be starring alongside fellow musician Lady Gaga and actor-director Bradley Cooper in the movie, which has already received critical acclaim and plenty of hype in the industry.

“I guess now is a good time to finally tell you guys that I have a little cameo in A Star Is Born,” she wrote.

“Thank you so so much to Gaga and Bradley for including me. It was an honour to watch both of your talent and dedication on set. An all time life highlight for me for sure.”

When asked by a fan what her role would be, she revealed that she would be playing herself in the movie.

“I play myself for a very small moment,” she replied, “which is insane because it means Gaga and Bradley saw me worthy of representing a piece of the current state of music in this film forever.”

She added: “They could have picked any artist. It was so humbling and unreal.”

A Star Is Born, the fourth version to hit the big screen since the 1937 original, follows seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) as he discovers struggling artist Ally Rose (Gaga) and nurtures her into a star as his own spotlight continues to fade.

It’s the first big screen role for pop icon Gaga, who’s previously taken the lead in hit anthology TV series American Horror Story, and critics are almost universally united in their praise of her performance.

The Telegraph have described both Gaga and Cooper as “stunning” in the movie, while The Guardian wrote: “Her songs are gorgeous and the ingenuous openness of her scenes with Jackson are wonderfully sympathetic.”
