Lady Gaga is denying rumors that she is dating Bradley Cooper that have amplified following the couple’s intimate performance at the Oscars. Gaga appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live (per TV Line) and rolled her eyes when she was asked about the performance and speculation the co-stars are involved.

“First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet, and what it has done to pop culture is just abysmal,” Gaga said. “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… We worked all week on that performance.”

Gaga added that she let Cooper take charge of the performance, having been the director of the film. “He laid it all out,” she said. “Everything that you saw — the way that it was shot, the way that they pushed the piano out [and] you saw them put the piano together, us walk up on stage, no intro — that was all him,” she said. “It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel. I’m an artist, I guess we did a good job, and, fooled ya!”

There have been a host of rumors that the Gaga and Cooper are involved, particularly after Gaga announced her split from her fiancee of two years, Christian Carino.
