The world has ben speculating for months about Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s relationship.The couple starred in the hit movie A Star is Born and their chemistry was off the charts. They’re actors right?
Well that answer didn’t fly. Bradley and Gaga’s performance and quite frankly their non=stop gushing about each other off screen, led many to believe the two were having an affair. Bradley is dating model Irina Shayk and the two have a baby together. Lady Gaga was engaged to Christian Carino. However, she recently broke off the engagement fanning the flames of the rumors about her and Bradley.
Social media was off the charts with the rumors. Even celebrities got into the act. Following their intimate Oscars performance of “Shallow,” David Spade posted, “Is there any chance these 2 aren’t f–king?” And the everyone seemed to agree.
Finally, Lady Gaga is setting the record straight. The Oscar winner appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live (Wednesday night), her firsts interview since the sizzling Oscar performance with Bradley, and she put the rumors to rest.
Jimmy introduced Gaga in a way that addressed the chemistry between the singer and her leading man.
“On Sunday millions of women around the world became furious with their partners for never looking at them the way Bradley Cooper looked at our first guest during their show-stopping musical performance,” he said.
Then it was time to address the rumors head on. After Jimmy said it looked like you two were in love. Gaga rolled her eyes and then explained it all
“First of all, social media is the toilet of the internet. What it has done to pop culture is abysmal. And yes, people saw love and guess what, that’s what we wanted . you to see,” she said. ” This is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie ‘A Star is Born,’ it’s a love story. We worked so hard. We worked all week on that performance.”
She went on to explain how Bradley directed the entire Oscars performance. “Bradlay—I never relinquish control about a live stage performance— but he directed this film and he directed all of the musical moments in the film and he directed obviously ‘Shallow’ the moment in the film. I knew that he had the vision for how it should go. So I was like, ‘what do you think Bradley.’ He laid it all out. Everything that you saw, was all him. He even also was the one who thought the audience should be lit.”

She continued, “From a performance perspective it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time. Look, I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs that’s what you want people to feel.”
Jimmy interjected, “Are you having an affair with Tony Bennett, be honest?”
After coyly smiling, Gaga emphatically said, “No. No I’m artist and I guess we did a good job and fooled ya.”
That they did. The couple should win an Oscar for their real life performance alone.
