Few up-and-coming pop stars have captured the public’s attention through heartfelt songwriting, raw talent and bright orange hair the way that Ally has. This rising artist first made waves when she made a surprise appearance onstage with washed-up (but still hot) rocker Jackson Maine, belting out a song she apparently wrote in front of thousands with, based on insider info, no rehearsal whatsoever. She’s set to release her debut record and appear on Saturday Night Live imminently, and now even has a billboard in Los Angeles, right outside the Chateau Marmont. Allygators rise, your time is here!
Ok but seriously … there’s an actual Ally billboard in Los Angeles outside the Chateau Marmont. Seemingly erected this week, the billboard could be part of a buzz campaign now that we’re firmly in awards season — the Golden Globes are this Sunday, after all, and Gaga’s nose, essentially the third lead of A Star Is Born, has never been more in demand.
All over Twitter, Allygators are losing their minds over the real-life structure, which had become a meme shortly after it appeared in A Star Is Born was released in October.

Yup, they’ve put up an Ally billboard outside the Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip. Same place it’s supposed to be in A STAR IS BORN, albeit a little lower. pic.twitter.com/oeBfwaQvBu

YouTuber Tyler Oakley seemed to claim credit for the billboard, tweetting that his “boyfriend got a Tesla today but I refuse to let him outshine me getting an Ally Maine billboard on Sunset Boulevard today.” Honestly, plausible.. He later clarified that he was not, in fact, behind it after all..
OMG NO IT WASN’T ME WHO ~BOUGHT~ THE BILLBOARD LMAO!! I JUST MEAN IT WAS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO ME TODAY!! OH MY GOD LMAO NOOOOOO LOL https://t.co/xxJRq4DkxA

Whoever is behind the billboard, whether it’s the A Star Is Born marketing team, Gaga herself or Jackson Maine’s ghost trying to apologize for that “fucking ugly” comment, one thing is certain: “Hair Body Face” slaps hard.
