Although Lady Gaga can shake a mean leg, in this instance she rather channeled her inner Arthur Fleck as she was photographed at the iconic staircase located in NYC where she has been shooting the Joker sequel.

When she was in the city shooting for the movie, the 37-year-old singer/actor also shot quite a few scenes at the same staircase where the titular character of Joker, played by Joaquin Phoenix boogied down in the blockbuster film of 2019.

Gaga would be playing the role of Harley Quinn in this sequel and filmed quite a few scenes for this project at the staircase that connected the Anderson and Shakespeare avenues at West 167th Street in the Bronx. In one of the latest pictures taken at the location, Gaga was wearing a large black jacket and a pair of gloves. Interestingly, she wasn’t decked in her Quinn makeup- which she had been wearing in the previous shots

A few clips from onlookers also showed Lady Gaga shimmying a little dance move which was quite reminiscent of the scene from Joker. But there have been debates whether this move by the singer was for the movie, or if she was doing it as a tribute. Some footage also showed the singer walking up the steps before she did the little shuffle and made her way down. One would never forget the spine-tingling role played by Phoenix as Joker, one that landed him the Oscar for Best Actor in 2020. In 2022, PEOPLE also confirmed Gaga’s involvement in the sequel, where she was rumored to play the role of Harley Quinn. 

Lady Gaga then went on to confirm this casting in August- where she also posted a teaser video that displayed the silhouettes of Joaquin Phoenix and Gaga dancing to old-timey beats.
