    Lady Gaga Just Explained Her ~Chemistry~ With Bradley Cooper During Their Oscars Performance

    No, they're not really in love.

    If you're a human person, I'm sure you're aware that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper took to the Oscars stage on Sunday to perform "Shallow", the huge hit song from their movie A Star Is Born.

    The performance was beautiful, but there was one thing in particular people noticed: their chemistry was off-the-charts. If you don't believe me, just look at this GIF.

    And it even captured the attention of both Gaga and Bradley's exes, who appeared to get all kinds of shady on social media.

    Yesterday, eagle-eyed fans noticed Gaga's former fiancé Taylor Kinney liked a definitely shady comment about her on Instagram. He's since apologised, and claimed the like was an accident.

    Meanwhile, Bradley's ex-wife Jennifer Esposito had to post a video on Instagram explaining that her comment on a post asking whether Gaga and Bradley were "fucking" was simply a response to a joke she found funny.

    Now, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Gaga herself has acknowledged the reactions to her chemistry with her co-star.

    She also brought her Oscar along, and TBH, you would do the same thing.

    First of all, here's Gaga's reaction when Jimmy brought up the fact that people were saying she and Bradley must be having a ~secret love affair~.

    She went on to explain that they were simply acting loved-up because they were performing a love song.

    Yes, people saw love, and guess what? That's what we wanted you to see. This, "Shallow", is a love song. The movie, A Star Is Born, is a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance ... It was just great, and 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," Gaga said. "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," she finished.
