Could Lady Gaga be headed to the big screen? It’s reported that she’s been offered nearly $5 million to star as Ben Stiller‘s love interest in Zoolander 2. The pint-sized powerhouse has yet to release a comment on the report and allegations have not been confirmed, but a reprise from Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald with Mother Monster in the mix would be epic!

Speaking of Gaga, the New York native is turning her recent weight gain backlash into a “smart water” move. The 26-year-old singer is rumored to be starting a bottled water line, to be released under her creative team at Haus of Gaga. Seeing that rapper 50 Cent earned $100 million with his Power 50 formula at Glaceau, we’re sure Gaga’s healthy water drink will do the same — or better — with her legion of little monsters.

It will follow Ethel Kennedy‘s years alongside husband Robert Kennedy before his 1968 assassination, and her life as a widow after. The doc premiered in February at the Sundance Film Festival.
