Get ready, Little Monsters! Netflix just dropped the latest teaser for Gaga: Five Foot Two.

So far, this is the longest look we’ve gotten at the new documentary. We’d gotten a number of brief teasers from Twitter, but nothing substantial.

If you can’t wait until Sept. 22, here’s everything we know about the documentary so far.

1. We’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show

One of our favorite events of the year was Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. It was absolutely jaw-dropping. (Even more so when you hear the isolated mic feed and realize she’s nailing it.)

Though we don’t get a lot of information from the impressionistic editing style of the teaser, there are a number of shots clearly from the Super Bowl performance. We’re so excited to get this peek behind the curtain!


2. Even Lady Gaga gets hassled by security

While the trailer has a number of quick cuts, there’s one longer clip. In it, Gaga goes to Walmart. (She’s just like us!) She grabs a handful of CDs and is then confronted by store security. The rent-a-cop says they can’t film in the store … but you’d think they’d make an exception for Lady Gaga. Especially since, unlike the rest of America, she’s actually buying compact discs.

3. We’re getting an in-depth look at Joanne

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it looks like a lot of Gaga: Five Foot Two will be about the making of Joanne. We even see her getting the album-title tattoo. There are a couple quick shots from the making of “Perfect Illusion.” And, of course, we get to see at least a little bit of her current Joanne tour. (And despite the haters, we think Joanne is a pretty great record.)


4. Lady Gaga goes under the knife

In the teaser above, we see Gaga at the doctor. In the new trailer, we see a few shots of her being prepped for surgery. While there are rumors that the singer recently had plastic surgery, given that she’s been open about that in the past, we’re not so sure that’s it. These shots could come from her recovery from a broken hip, but it’s most likely to help with her fibromyalgia.

5. The birth of Gaga as an actress

There are a few shots in there that appear to be from American Horror Story. Gaga appeared in last year’s “Hotel” season — so we’ll probably get a pretty good look at her process. Since Gaga’s also gearing up for her first feature film, the remake of A Star is Born, we won’t be surprised if we see how Gaga pivots to acting. (Of course, given the filmic nature of her music videos, we shouldn’t be surprised to see her acting more.)

Gaga: Five Foot Two premieres on Netflix Sept. 22, 2017.
