Gaga Addresses Cooper Romance Rumors
Ever since their intimate Oscars performance last weekend, people are convinced the A Star Is Born co-stars are secretly having an affair. Now, the singer is setting the rumors straight. She stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night ( Feb. 27) and was asked the burning question we've all been dying to know: Are they in love? Her immediate response? A super dramatic eye roll that was enough to stop all the speculation in its tracks.
"First of all, social media—quite frankly—is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song," she said.
"The movie A Star Is Born is a love story," Gaga explained to host Jimmy Kimmel. "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."
So that puts an end to all the rumors, we guess. "I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job… fooled ya!" Gaga added. Come on! Do you blame us for thinking these two are soulmates destined to be together?
