Now, after days of speculation, Lady Gaga has finally responded to the rumours – and she did it in the best way possible.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live with her Oscar for Best Original Song, Kimmel asked Gaga about the speculation.

“We were watching it at home and we were like, ‘what is going on between these two?'” Kimmel said.

“You had such a connection with Bradley instantly that people started saying ‘they must be dating, they must be in love’,” he added.

What followed was the greatest eye roll we have ever seen.

Take a look for yourself:


“Social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet,” Gaga told Kimmel.

“Yes, people saw love and guess what, that’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song. The movie, A Star Is Born, is a love story,” she continued.

“We worked so hard. We worked all week on that performance.

“From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time. 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.

“I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job – fooled you!”
