Lady Gaga responds to pregnancy rumours on social media
Lady Gaga has had a busy few months, and it's mostly due to her role in the Oscar-winning A Star is Born, and her undeniable chemistry with her co-star, Bradley Cooper. The pair dazzled as a dynamic musical duo and star-crossed lovers, and judging by their performance of Shallow at the 2019 Oscars, it looks like that connection isn't going to fizzle out anytime soon.
The performance featured some seriously intense eye-contact between the pair, who starred as Jackson Maine and Ally in the feature, which went onto win the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Towards the close of the track, Cooper and Gaga sat very close to each other, as they shared just a microphone and a small piano bench. Naturally, the internet was full of frenzied reactions to the duet, as people speculated whether the pair were more than just friends.
And now it looks like an immaculate conception has occurred! Or so the internet would have us believe...
Gaga recently broke things off with her fiancée Christian Carino - and while there's talk that something is going on between her and her co-star - it's pretty evident that Cooper is loved up with his longtime model girlfriend, Irina Shayk. So why then is there speculation that Gaga is pregnant?
While we can't explain the rampant rumour-mill that is social media, Gaga took to Twitter to shut down the speculation, and made a surprise announcement in the process.
The Oscar-winning singer posted a tweet poking fun at the pregnancy rumours, and revealed that she's currently working on a new album. "Rumours I’m pregnant?" she said. "Yeah, I’m pregnant with #LG6 [Lady Gaga 6]."
The 32-year-old's last album, Joanne, was released in October of 2016 to positive critical reaction.
In other news, Gaga recently opened up about that now-iconic Oscars performance, and all the chatter regarding how "steamy" it was.
"First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet," she said during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. "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." She added: "That is what we wanted you to see. This is a love song. It is a love story and we worked so hard. I knew he had the vision for how it should go."
Dispelling the rumours of an affair between her and Cooper once more, the singer-cum-actress pointed out the parallels between her previous work with Tony Bennett. "From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time. Look, I've had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you're singing love songs, that's what you want people to feel," she continued
The Oscars performance was the first time that Gaga has been seen in public since splitting from her fiancée, Christian Carino. She walked the red carpet alone, while her co-star arrived with his mother, Gloria, and girlfriend, model Irina Shayk.
