It was impossible to have a conversation about the 91st Academy Awards without talking about that performance from the stars of A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The two were on everyone’s radar all night long. They sat in the front row at the Oscars, along with Bradley’s longtime girlfriend, model Irina Shayk.
When Lady Gaga and Bradley took the stage to perform “Shallow,” the internet lost its collective mind. The emotional song already holds a lot of weight in people’s hearts. Seeing Bradley and Gaga perform it together was a whole other story. The chemistry between them was palpable, and definitely added more steam behind rumors that the two of them were seeing each other following the film. It was only a matter of time before someone asked one of them to address that chemistry.
Jimmy Kimmel did just that when he was interviewing Gaga on his show. Her response may not have been what fans wanted to hear, but it was the truth we all needed.
