Lady Gaga went on Jimmy Kimmel Live on February 27 and dispelled rumors of an off-screen romance with her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper. The singer claimed their steamy Oscars performance was just an act to portray the love story!
Jimmy Kimmel told Gaga, 32, a lot of fans thought, “Oh, they must be in love,” after the Oscars performance with Bradley, 44. The “Born This Way” singer instantly rolled her eyes.
Gaga then said, “Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see.”
The singer continued, “This is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie A Star Is Born, it’s a love story. We worked all week on that performance.” She also revealed, “Bradley had the vision for how it should go.”
Gaga further explained that everything was rehearsed in advance. She joked, “I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!”
Fans also fueled rumors that Bradley’s girlfriend, Irina Shayk, was jealous of the co-stars’ relationship, especially because of Gaga’s recent split with fiancé Christian Carino. A source recently told The Sun, “Irina’s no stranger to cheating rumors – she dated Cristiano Ronaldo after all – but it’s been a long publicity campaign and she’s ready for it to end.”
