Taylor Kinney appears to throw shade at ex-fiancé Lady Gaga following Oscar win
If you're still suffering the throes of winter weather, just watch Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's steamy performance of Shallow at the Oscars. It is guaranteed to warm you up. As the two stars crooned their Academy-Award-winning tune from the third remake of A Star Is Born, they nuzzled close together, gazing into each other's eyes. The intimate duet went viral, inspiring many memes.
As everyone shipped the pair on Twitter, some people wondered how Bradley Cooper's girlfriend, supermodel Irina Shayk, felt about the performance. Well, judging by the broadcast, she felt just fine. When the song ended, Shayk was the first person to give them a standing ovation, and a photo showed her congratulate Gaga on her win. So, it looks like the couple is far from the sha-sha-la-la-la-low.
Gaga is currently single, having split from ex-fiancé Christian Carino. Before Carino, she was engaged to actor Taylor Kinney. In 2016, just after Gaga booked the role in A Star Is Born, she announced their breakup on Instagram.
"Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates," she wrote. "Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other."
In the Netflix documentary, Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two, the singer confirmed the breakup. "When I sold 10 million records, I lost Matt. I sold 30 million, I lose Luke. I get the movie, I lose Taylor," said an emotional Gaga.
Following the Academy Awards, Kinney appeared to throw shade at his ex-fiancé on Instagram. As you might expect, many followers bombarded him with comments asking what he thought about Gaga's Oscar win. Kinney didn't reply, but he did 'like' one shady comment: "Stoked you got away from Gaga. #Hollyweird."
Gaga's little monsters were not happy about the apparent shade. One Instagram user wrote, "@luvmynyyankees Shame on you!!! This is cyber bullying and I am reporting you! And @taylorkinney111 you know better than to waste a moment 'liking' something that puts down another person! You have a platform to spread kindness but you choose to egg on a bully. Completely tasteless and classless of you. I have lost respect."
Meanwhile, one Twitter user wrote, "Taylor Kinney left her when she decided to do A Star Is Born, now he’s a bitter bitch. To quote what Gaga herself once said - at least your career won’t turn around and tell you it doesn’t love you anymore. Another addition to the “men ain’t shit” biography."
Well, maybe Taylor Kinney just bumped the 'like' button? Just throwing that out there.
