Lady Gaga addresses Bradley Cooper romance speculation

The singer and brand-new Oscar winner appeared on « Jimmy Kimmel Live » in an episode that aired Wednesday night and was asked about her and Cooper’s emotional performance of « Shallow » at Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar performance took people off the deep end
She gave a dramatic eye roll when Kimmel asked her about online speculation that she and her « A Star Is Born » costar had a thing.

« First of all… social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet and what it’s done to pop culture is abysmal, » Gaga said. « People saw love and, guess what, that’s what we wanted to you to see. This is a love song. »

For the record, Cooper has been in a relationship for years with model Irina Shayk with whom he shares a young daughter.
Gaga said she and Cooper worked all week on their performance and she relinquished control of directing it to him.
Cooper directed their film and had a vision, she said, for how their Oscar performance should play out.
« From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time, » Gaga said. « I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s how you want people to feel. »

Gaga won best original song for « Shallow » at the Academy Awards and her performance as an up-and-coming singer who falls for Bradley’s established — and troubled — musician character in « A Star Is Born » won raves.

Gaga alluded to those acting skills as part of the reason viewers were so entranced with her and Cooper’s Oscar’s performance.
« I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job, » she told Kimmel. « Fooled ya! »
