It was a Tuesday like any other. I recently logged off work, and was riding the subway into Manhattan for a doctor's appointment, when my phone began buzzing with notifications regarding Lady Gaga. Naturally curious, I unlocked my phone and opened social media to see what all the buzz was about. There, among throngs of social media content, was Lady Gaga and my husband, Adam Driver, dressed in retro couture, resembling an 80s chalet commercial.


The photo, posted on Gaga's Instagram on Tuesday, was taken from the set of her upcoming Ridley Scott movie, "House of Gucci," where she'll portray Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of fashion mogul Maurizio Gucci (Driver). The film, based on the novel "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed," will follow Reggiani, as she is tried and convicted for planning the assassination of her ex-husband.

Gucci was shot outside his office in Milan in 1995, with Reggiani sentenced to 29 years in prison for organizing his death. The film appears to have all the makings of a Lifetime true crime drama, and I'm 100% here for it. Draped in gold jewelry and wearing a white fur hat, Gaga not only looks as if she walked off the pages of a ski catalog, but bears a striking resemblance to the Italian socialite.

Meanwhile, Driver looks like a full-fledged serial killer, wearing a cream cableknit sweater, oversized glasses, and a white jacket tied around his waist. It didn't take long for memes to begin circulating around the web, superimposing the couple onto "Star Wars" backgrounds and incorporating Bernie Sanders in his famous inauguration mittens.

The photos come a few weeks after Gaga's two French bulldogs were stolen at gunpoint. The abduction occurred on Feb 24, when Gaga's dog walker and friend, Ryan Fischer were walking her three pups on North Sierra Bonita Avenue in Los Angeles.

Both of Gaga's dogs have been returned to her unharmed.

Gaga, who won an Academy Award for best original song in 2018's "A Star is Born," is currently filming alongside Driver in Italy, with a release date set for November. The film will also star Hollywood legend Al Pacino, as well as Jeremy Irons and my other husband, Jared Leto.

Who else is excited to see Gags portray a stylish murderess?

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
