Lady Gaga Denies Bradley Cooper Romance Rumor After Oscars: "Fooled Ya!"

Lady Gaga hopes the Academy Awards might look to have gender-netural acting categories in the future

Lady Gaga hopes the Academy Awards might look to have gender-netural acting categories in the future

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper put up a breathtaking performance of "Shallow" at the 91st Academy Awards.

Gaga said she and Cooper worked all week on their performance and she relinquished control of directing it to him.

Cooper has been dating Russian model Irina Shayk for years and has a one-and-a-half-year-old daughter with her.

Kimmel jokingly asked if she was having an affair with Bennett. Another source told the global publication, "Some in the industry believe Bradley may be working the situation for public attention", but that "Gaga is an artist; she naturally goes into character to perform a song from the movie".

"That's what we wanted you to see", the pop star said as she addressed and dressed down the online shippers who insisted Cooper (the film's director who played Jackson Maine) and Lady Gaga (who plays Ally) had an offscreen romantic entanglement. The foursome had won Best Original Song for their work on "Shallow". "I have worked hard for a long time, and it is not about winning, but it's about not giving up".

She said it had been important to both herself and Cooper "that we were connected the entire time". "That's what we wanted you to see!" she said.

"If there's a discipline or a passion, it's not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or get beaten up, it's about how many times you stand up and are fearless and keep on going".

"So I'm an artist, and guess we did a good job, and fooled ya!"

Now, it remains to be seen when we'll see this new cut of the film in the United Kingdom - its U.S. release is imminent, hitting 1,150 cinemas Stateside on Friday for a one-week run.

Are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper friends?

But maybe not the kind of love people thought they saw?

A Star Is Born is Bradley Cooper's directorial debut, which had scored eight Oscar nominations. "I just whispered, I said, 'The song is so handsome".

The pop star then gave an example of another musical partner she had to sell an on-stage romance with: Tony Bennett. "Bradley surely feels the same way about her".
