When Lady Gaga was asked whether she and Brad had a romantic relationship during her interview on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live Show,’ she said, “First of all… social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet and what it’s done to pop culture is abysmal.”
Lady Gaga continued, “People saw love and, guess what, that’s what we wanted to you to see. This is a love song. I’m an artist, and I guess we did a good job -’Fooled ya!’”

What many do not realize is that much of the magic that came from this musical was due to the entire show being directed by Bradley Cooper. Lady Gaga revealed this to Jimmy Kimmel, saying, “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, us walking up on stage… no intro, that was all him.”
