While on the latest episode of Apple's Nova Podcast Brenda, Call Me! With Courtney Act and Vanitythe Queen + Adam Lambert lead singer revealed the news.

"Do you know, it’s funny, I auditioned for that part in A Star Is Born? It was so funny to me, because they told me about it and they were like ‘She’s going to have like a gay best friend’ and I was like ‘Okay, that could be cute’ and then I got the script and it was like… he was a Latin American character, like he was a Latino character."

"You know his name was Latino, a lot of the slang that he was using, he was calling her [Gaga] ‘Mami’ and all this stuff and I was like ‘Now how is this gonna work?, Should I just not go to the audition? This is not my part’."

The part eventually went to Anthony Ramos, who starred in Hamilton.

But how cool would it have been to see Adam Lambert on the big screen!?
