It’s not bad, right? A lot rockier than the original, but that’s to be expected. And given her professed love for classic rock and punk, we imagine Gaga would approve of Meryl-as-Ricki’s rendition.
Ricki and the Flash, which is director Jonathan Demme‘s first major feature since 2008’s Rachel Getting Married, follows Ricki, a woman who left her family to become a rock star, as she returns home and tries to make things right. Apparently, only a few seconds of the “Bad Romance” cover can be heard in the film, but the full song is included on the official soundtrack alongside covers of P!nk‘s “Get the Party Started,” U2‘s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and more.
Ricki and the Flash is in theaters now, and the soundtrack is available to purchase and stream. Watch the trailer for the movie below.
