'Gaga: Five Foot Two' Director on How They Handled Madonna Drama in Netflix Documentary

“Gaga: Five Foot Two” director Chris Moukarbel was given exclusive access to Lady Gaga for the Netflix documentary, and stopped by the Variety Studio Presented by AT&T at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about the movie.

After the film debuted at the fest, it made headlines for a scene where Gaga addressed the “feud” between herself and fellow megastar Madonna.

“It feels a little bit salacious or whatever, but it’s all really honest,” said Moukarbel. “She talks about how much she admires Madonna and always had. She just kind of pops one off about how things could have gone a little bit differently between the two of them, and I love that scene because you really understand her values.”
