Lady Gaga Says She 'Burst Into Tears' After Sleeping Through Oscar Nomination

Lady Gaga wants to make sure you know she's very excited about her two Oscar nominations for A Star is Born. But after fans wondered why she didn't immediately respond to the news, the singer explained to The New York Times on Wednesday (Jan. 23) that she slept through the announcement because she's on "showbiz time."
In fact, she didn't even get the news until three hours after the rest of the world found out that she's up for best actress and best song for "Shallow," her duet with her co-star/director, Bradley Cooper. “I’ve been trying to get some sleep because I’m on showbiz time,” Gaga told the paper, explaining that she's in Los Angeles for a few days while on a a break from her Las Vegas Enigma residency and that she slept in on Tuesday morning (Jan. 22) and missed announcements when they were read just after five a.m. on the West Coast.
“I woke up around 8:30 and I didn’t know anything about it,” she said, adding that she likely missed the avalanche of congratulation texts and calls because she can "sleep through just about anything." Once she woke up, though, she immediately called her manager and got the news, which caused her to "just burst into tears.”
