Lady Gaga Addresses Rumors That She And Bradley Cooper Are In Love

 

“Yes, people saw love. And guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see! This is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie, A Star Is Born, it’s a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance.”

Ever since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper shared the Oscars stage for an intimate and cinematic performance of “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, the Internet has been speculating whether the co-stars’ on-screen romance has seeped into real life. After all, they looked into each other’s eyes, leaned into each other on the piano bench, and sang lovingly with their eyes closed—they must be in love, right?

To that, Lady Gaga responds with the most epic eye-roll in the history of time:

image“And so I was like, ‘What do you think, Bradley?’ and he laid it all out. Everything that you saw, the way that it was shot, the way that they pushed the piano out, you saw them put the piano together, and us walk up on stage—all of it, that was all him.”

The singer added that it was Cooper’s idea to have the audience lit with amber lighting, so she reached out to her lighting design contact from her own performances to help add that touch to their now-iconic Oscars moment. “Bradley wants honeycomb, and we’ve got to give him what he wants!” Gaga quipped.

Apparently Bradley designed the whole look, from the workers assembling the piano, to the audience being lit with amber, to the way it was shot. “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,” she laughed. “When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.”

“I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!” she laughed.

She did rave about her costar’s performance, though, and said he wasn’t even nervous. “Bradley’s a musician. My favorite thing about the whole experience was I was just so excited for people not only at home but our peers in the room to see him sing live. He sang every take in this movie live, every single time. All of it.”

Watch Lizzo and Este Haim recreate iconic ‘Anchorman’

Girl when do you SLEEP but thank you for continually blessing us with yourself” and “I’m probably going to create a new account just to like this more than once.”

One fan even believed that the video is a sign of good things to come, tweeting, “I will forever stan this multi talented queen. She is making moves and influences in pop culture and I cannot wait for her to blossom and just flex on the music scene.”

The ‘Juice’ singer started the #FluteAndShoot social media challenge last year, which Will Ferrell – in character of Ron Burgundy – responded to with his own performance. Lizzo posted the clip to Instagram, along with the caption: “YOU’RE GOIN DOWN, BURGUNDY!!!”

After showing off her flute-playing skills in an audition for the role of Ursula in The Little Mermaid, Lizzo has again impressed the Internet with her lifelong talent as an instrumentalist. In a brand new video, the rapper recreated the famous Anchorman jazz flute scene, and it is everything.

For her answer to Will’s challenge, she created her own version of the club in which Ron first performs the jazz flute. However, her establishment is named Lizzo, naturally, and Este Haim makes an appearance, encouraging Lizzo to perform. The video — which is titled “The Legend of Lizzo” — has the rapper impressing the club with her jazz-flute playing skills. For her version of the scene, Lizzo borrows a few moves from Ron, adding a dash of flute to her recently released single “Juice.” Performing on stage, she launches into a rendition that features her stomping on tables, popping in under a bathroom stall, and, of course, a finale with flames.

The clip sees her at a jazz bar with Este Haim, where she reveals that she “dabbles” in jazz flute, before accepting a request to perform on stage and unleashing a flute rendition of her recent single “Juice” – with pyrotechnics included.

Carly Rae Jepsen Debuts Two New Singles Ahead of New Album

What a day for reveals! At noon today, Carly Rae Jepsen very casually dropped two new singles on the world, and it’s the bubblegum pop music that we all so desperately need right now. In anticipation of her fourth studio album, Jepsen announced the release of “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me” on Twitter, and the results are exactly what you can expect from Jepsen—good, unadulterated pop music.

Carly Rae Jepsen, the sparkliest and dreamiest of all hitmakers, is back with two new additions to her collection of hyperbolically emotive pop. Last we heard from her, she was “partying on her own” — putting a characteristically optimistic spin on millennial’s pop’s sexless anxiety — but now she’s fallen back in love. Thank god!

“Now That I’ve Found You’s” EDM-lite synths are so energetic and sparkly, the song will leave your shoulders dusted with glitter. And when she calls out on the chorus,”Don’t give it up! Don’t say it hurts!/ Cause there’s nothing like this feeling baby/ Now that I’ve found out,” a hibernating teenager will crawl out of recesses of your black heart, do a “High School Musical” and ask their crush to prom. CRJ expertly captures that miracle moment of love, when you’re first rolling on the drug of togetherness.

The singles stay along the same lines of Jepsen’s previously released work, with “Now That I Found You” finding Jepsen flexing her upbeat synth pop muscles harder than ever. The refrain heavy chorus is the trademark of Jepsen’s signature flavor of banger. The more subdue “No Drug Like Me” tells the story of blossoming love. In short, if you want a break from all the heaviness in the world, Jepsen has your back.

“No Drug Like Me” brings out Jepsen’s more sultry side, incorporating R&B influences and a thumping bass line. She says that the song reveals “a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I’ll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself.”

Jepsen confirmed that she’ll release a new, long-anticipated project in 2019. For now, these two new songs make the perfect pair, and I’ve been satiated after years of waiting for new music from my Canadian queen Carly Rae. Plus, what more could the gays want than a collaboration between CRJ and the Fab Five?

Move aside, Ally Maine — there’s another Ally in town.

On Thursday night (February 28), Ally Brooke took a break from slaying dance routines to check out Tori Kelly‘s headlining concert in Los Angeles. And because the two are such good pals, Tori brought the former Fifth Harmony member onstage for a surprise performance of everyone’s favorite song to cover: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow.”

For their take on the Grammy- and Oscar-winning A Star Is Born duet, Tori and Ally traded verses, letting their soulful vocals fill the room with just an acoustic guitar beneath them. When it came time for *that* epic long note, they took a tag-team approach, with Tori taking the lead and Ally finishing it off. Everyone from Nick Jonas to Kelly Clarkson to Lea Michele and Darren Criss have covered “Shallow,” but this might be one of the best yet.

After their joint performance, Ally took to Instagram to gush, “SO THIS HAPPENED LAST NIGHT!!! Thank you so much for inviting me to be a surprise guest at your show here in LA! This was so special? So honored to have shared the stage with you my beautiful friend. I love you so much Tori.”

Indeed, the two singers do go back quite a ways — take a trip down memory lane by revisiting this amazing throwback pic of Tori and Fifth Harmony (and Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes; no big deal).

Kehlani is ready to spread her wings and bring forth new life in her video for “Butterfly.”

The woozy, reverb-soaked track speaks to the transformative power of love, with the singer encouraging her partner to open up in the same way a butterfly sheds its cocoon. In the new video, she physically illustrates that concept by emerging from a chrysalis as a gorgeously pregnant butterfly in multi-colored body paint. As the video draws to a close, she performs the emotional spoken-word portion of the song, encouraging her lover, “I hope you take from this that it’ll make you no less of a man / To break your walls and simply grab my hand.”

Kehlani spreads her wings in the video for “Butterfly” off her newly-released mixtape While We Wait.

The R&B singer experiences a transformation in the stunning clip, directed by 20-year-old newcomer Trey Lyons. A pregnant Kehlani emerges from a cocoon before transforming into a butterfly with painted glittery wings and a glowing baby bump.

“Thank you Oakland School for the Arts for cultivating such a beautiful community, and teaching me so much of what I use today in my career,” Kehlani wrote. “Directed by the youngest director I’ve ever worked with @treylyons, thank you for bringing my vision to life.”

“Butterfly” follows videos for the Dom Kennedy-featuring “Nunya” and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Nights Like This.” All three tracks appear on Kehlani’s January mixtape, While We Wait, which she released as an appetizer to hold fans over until her next full-length project. Meanwhile, the Oakland singer is reaching the end of her pregnancy — she announced back in October that she’s expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her partner, Javie Young-White.
