Lady Gaga knows that her Oscars performance with Bradley Cooper was intimate — and she says that’s what the pair was going for.
Days after the actors took to the Oscars stage to perform “Shallow” from their hit film "A Star Is Born", Gaga opened up about the performance with her costar on "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
Kimmel pointed out that Gaga and Cooper raised eyebrows when their intense connection appeared to come across as an actual romance. Gaga, however, shut down those rumors and claimed it was all for show.
She said,“Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see.
“Shallow is a love song, 'A Star Is Born' is a love story. It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.”
Gaga even pointed out that her connection with Cooper was no different than when she had her “arms wrapped around” duet partner Tony Bennett over the past few years — and she never had a romantic relationship with him, either.
She said, “I’m an artist and I guess Bradley and I did a good job… fooled ya!”
