Lady Gaga has shut down those cringe-worthy rumours that her and Bradley Cooper had started a secret romance during the filming of A Star Is Born.
Bradley Cooper is married to Irina Shayk and they both welcomed their first child back in 2017. Happily married, it seems bizarre that the internet would spin such an elaborate story, but then I remember that people see whatever they want to see!
Lady Gaga appeared on Jimmy Kimmel to address the rumours, where she said this:
“First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. And people saw love, and guess what, that’s what we wanted you to see.”
“This is a love song, ‘Shallow‘. The movie, ‘A Star Is Born’, is a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance. Bradley, who — and you know, I never relinquish control about a live stage performance and I’ve done a million of them — but he directed this film and he directed, obviously, the musical moments in the film, and ‘Shallow’, the moment, in the film. So I knew that he had the vision for how it should go, and so I was like, What do you think Bradley?’ And he laid it all out.”
Being in the public eye comes with a price, and in this case, it’s rumours. Being resilient to things like this is one thing, but they’re human and they still get second hand embarrassment from certain tweets or comments!
