Lady Gaga wants to play Amy Winehouse in biopic

It's always a bit silly relying on tabloid reports of celebrity gossip, especially when that tabloid nonsense doesn't have any substantiating quotes beyond 'sources', and 'friends close to' whoever it is that is being gossiped about.

However this time the story is too good to not be true, so let's just run with it, eh? Lady GaGa has apparently said that she wants to play Amy Winehouse in a Hollywood biopic, saying that it's the 'only role for her'. We're not entirely convinced that GaGa could pull of a convincing north London accent, especially one as distinctive as Winehouse's, but it would be interesting seeing just what she would do with the role.

'Lady Gaga worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen,' said the source. 'She'd be spot on performing Amy's songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude.

'Gaga's been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career. Gaga's management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy's untimely death. But there’s only ever been one role she wants and that’s to play Amy.'
