Gaga insists she and Bradley performed the song in their characters - with Gaga as Ally and Bradley as Jack - because they're both "artists", who wanted to give the best performance possible.

Bradley, who-you know, I like, never relinquish control at a live stage performance, I've done a million of them-he directed this film.

And in her documentary, Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two, she addressed the former couple's struggle as she landed her career-changing role in A Star Is Born.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's Oscars duet Sunday set online tongues wagging about their chemistry, leading her to deny speculation of a real-life affair. Another source told the worldwide publication, "Some in the industry believe Bradley may be working the situation for public attention", but that "Gaga is an artist; she naturally goes into character to perform a song from the movie". "People saw love, and guess what?"

She said: "If you are watching this right now, all I have to say is that this is hard work". She also explained how Cooper planned out their entire performance-from their walkup together and the piano rollout to the camera shots and the lighting. Well. I guess that's a stupid question because it doesn't feel like we're ever moving on from ASIB, at least not for another week at the movies.

Are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper friends? Thank you to Mark Ronson, to Anthony Rossomando, to Andrew Wyatt my co-writers, I love them so much.

"I mean, look, I've had my arm around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world".

"I did a movie and lose Taylor", she said through tears. "My favourite 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 and know that he sang every take in this movie live, every single time". There are also reports doing the rounds that Bradley is considering breaking up with his model girlfriend Irina Shayk for Gaga. "He doesn't want Irina to feel uncomfortable and she seems totally secure with their relationship". You're in luck: Warner bringing a special encore version of "A Star Is Born" back to the big screen Friday with almost 12 additional minutes of footage.
