Lady Gaga might just be the new Harley Quinn to Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.
The American singer-songwriter, who won her 13th Grammy Award at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, is reportedly set to join the cast of Joker 2 with Joaquin Phoenix in the title role.
The news of Gaga’s reported casting was first revealed by the Instagram handle of the gossip site Deuxmoi. So, the big question is:
Is Lady Gaga in the sequel of ‘Joker’?
Deuxmoi’s official Instagram handle broke the news of Gaga’s reported casting in Joker 2 via its Instagram stories.
They had shared a screenshot of an anonymous tip they received in their submission forms. The subject was written as “Casting news,” and the message mentioned that Phoenix had expressed his desire to cast Rooney Mara as the female lead in Joker 2.
Mara is a notable American actress who has impressed audiences via her performances in Tanner Hall, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Side Effects, Her, A Ghost Story, and Nightmare Alley.
Her works have led her to two nominations for Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards, respectively, among other accolades. Additionally, she is Phoenix’s girlfriend turned fiance and shares a son, River, with him – born in late September 2020.
Mara’s incredible professional success and relationship with Phoenix might have led the actor to ask the casting directors to cast his fiance in the Joker sequel.
However, as Deuxmoi’s tip states, the casting directors have reportedly opted for Gaga. As of now, there has been no confirmation of the news.

There is also little to no information on what role Gaga will play – if she has been cast – but considering she has reportedly been cast as the female lead, opposite to Phoenix’s Joker, many have guessed she will portray the role of Harley Quinn.
Fans react to the news on Twitter and Reddit
After Deuxmoi shared the yet-to-be-confirmed casting news of Gaga in the Joker sequel, fans of the singer were very much delighted. Several went to Twitter and expressed their views about it.
One fan wrote, “Ok wait Lady Gaga as the female lead in Joker 2 potentially…. That’s an idea I’m very much into.”
“The year is 2026. I am seated for Joker 2. Lady Gaga has given the greatest performance of our lifetime as Harley Quinn. Light eminates from my body. I ascend above the theater. We have reached peak cinema,” another user daydreamed.
Furthermore, film journalist Darren Mooney also wrote a piece on Twitter after learning about the news. He wrote, “I suspect that if Lady Gaga is cast in ‘Joker 2,’ the most ‘interesting’ thing about that movie is going to be the ‘method acting’ discourse about a female lead in a blockbuster.”
A user had also posted a fan poster for Joker 2 using Phoenix’s image from the first Joker movie and Gaga’s image from the internet.
Similarly, there were also some discussions on a Reddit thread about Gaga’s reported casting in the Joker 2 movie. One of the fans mentioned that Deuxmoi’s news should always be taken with a grain of salt.
“This Joker just loves to dance so it makes sense to cast a great singer opposite him. Maybe it’ll be a musical? We live in a post-Hamilton society,” another Redditor wrote humorously.
However, as we said earlier, nothing about Gaga’s casting has been confirmed. So until that happens, let’s not get our hopes up.
Details on ‘Joker 2’ – Is it confirmed?
With the news of Gaga’s reported casting in the DC franchise, some might wonder if Warner Bros. has confirmed the sequel to 2019’s standalone Joker movie.

But, much to fans’ disappointment, Joker 2 hasn’t been officially renewed for a sequel. Nonetheless, several insiders have reported that the production has been moving forward, and the filming might start from 2023 onwards.
Additionally, Heroic Hollywood reported that they were tipped off by an insider who told them Warner Bros. has “officially received the first draft of its script and the film will begin shooting sometime in 2023.”
The same outlet also mentioned that The Hollywood Reporter had reported in November 2019 that Joker 2 was officially in the works at Warner Brothers. Phoenix and director Todd Phillips were returning to their respective jobs.
Following Phoenix’s iconic portrayal of The Joker in 2019, for which he won an Academy Award, the character has only shown up a few times. The first was at the end of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, in which actor Jared Leto reprised his role of The Joker.
The second and last time was in Robert Pattinson’s version of The Batman movie, in which actor Barry Keoghan portrayed The Joker.
Keoghan’s version of The Joker only made a cameo appearance in the movie itself, but a full-length deleted scene involving his Joker and Pattinson’s Batman was released later.

“The minute he says he wants to do another one, I’ll be there in a second,” he said. “But I trust his vision and his instincts, and so I leave it always in his hands, as ever.”
Where Is Lil Tay Today? Truth behind Her Viral 2023 Video
Is Lil Tay back as of 2023?
In 2018, Lil Tay went viral on social media, and everyone was talking about her.
She rose to prominence as a controversial online star by posting videos in which she boasted about allegedly having beautiful houses and automobiles, dropping out of Harvard, and amassing vast sums of money. At the time, her age was nine.
As her account and business evolved, she partnered with emerging rappers and used her outsized on-screen presence to achieve social media fame. Moreover, she was seen smoking a hookah, hanging out with rapper Chief Keef, and dancing with YouTuber Jake Paul.
However, all of a sudden, she disappeared after it was revealed that she was forced to do all of those things by her family. Since then, people have been wondering what happened to Lil Tay and where is Lil Tay today.
Recently, a person who looked like a controversial influencer went viral on TikTok. As a result, many believe that she is Lil Tay.
Where is Lil Tay today in 2023?
Since people have been wondering where Lil Tay has been now in 2023, they snooped around on the internet. As a result, netizens found a TikTok user, @jaaninethahswee.
She looked like Lil Tay, so people naturally believed that she was the grown-up version of Lil Tay. However, the claim was swiftly debunked after Twitter user @JayCartere shared a screenshot of the girl’s TikTok page.
According to the screenshot, the girl, who is assumed to be a grown-up version of Lil Tay, is known on TikTok as Jannine Thahswee. The controversial star’s age is another factual evidence that refutes the notion.
She claimed to be nine years old in 2018. So now, as of 2023, her age would be fourteen.
Even though Thahswee looks similar to Lil Tay, she appears to be considerably older than a 14-year-old. She has around 8000 TikTok followers.
She uploaded a video in 2020 in which she described how she and her partner met and how their love progressed over the course of two years. According to the video, Jannine was in 10th grade two years ago, in 2018, putting to rest any suspicions that this TikToker is not Lil Tay.
What happened to Lil Tay?
Lil Tay rose to notoriety in 2018 after posting dubious videos online in which she boasted about her fortune and regularly used expletives, leaving viewers concerned about the nine-year-vulgar old’s attitude.
Lil Tay’s name became famous because rap legend Eminem revealed it in his ‘Killshot’ diss track against Machine Gun Kelly.
That did not concern Lil Tay or her family, as Tay’s mother stated in an interview with Good Morning America that she supports anything her daughter decides to do. Her mother indicated that she would let her follow her dreams.

Jason, her older brother, looked nonchalant about the consequences of his sister’s terrible social media popularity. Other questions were made regarding Lil Tay’s well-being and parenting practices after a video surfaced showing her brother directing her what to say in front of the camera.
In an interview, Lil Tay’s father stated that before his daughter’s social media appearance became famous, he disapproved of most of her actions. He even sought legal advice to prevent his daughter from acting like that.
Her father believed these were damaging her bodily and emotional health and threatening her future. However, her father was also accused of being abusive.
Jason stated their father abandoned the family and only returned to profit off her sister’s internet popularity and money. There were also accusations that the controversial star got caught up in a custody fight between her parents and moved to Canada to live with her father, where her father and stepmother were violent to her.
However, there have been no updates about Lil Tay, and nobody knows what she is up to now.
