Let’s Address the Hilarious ‘A Star Is Born’ Billboard That’s Become a Viral Meme

A Star Is Born fever continues to sweep, and right now we’re going to address the hilarious Gaga meme that many are obsessed with.


About midway through Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, Cooper’s Jackson Maine has a heart-to-heart with Lady Gaga’s budding superstar Ally as they stand on a balcony at the Chateau Marmont and soak in her new billboard on Sunset Boulevard. A glamorous shot in pink and blue lights, the billboard simply reads, “ALLY.”

The gay internet has had some fun with this, specifically with the homograph “ally,” singular of "allies."

Some notable examples:

“When God invented the prostate: ALLY!”


“When a straight person plays Carly Rae Jepsen: ALLY!”




Get it? It’s a good time.

The irony here is that “Ally” and “ally” are heteronyms— and this is the biggest LGBTQ+ meme of the moment.
