Singer Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sent the internet into a meltdown after their romantic performance at the 91st Academy Awards. It also triggered their relationship rumours, which the Oscar winner quashed on a TV show. 

Gaga appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Wednesday, where Kimmel was quick to bring up the internet's fixation on the moment at the end of the pair's performance of "Shallow", which won the Academy Award for best original song, reported

"You had such a connection with Bradley that, instantly, and I guess this is a compliment, people started saying, 'Oh, they must be in love'," Kimmel said.

The Oscar-winning songwriter, who brought her statuette along for the interview, gave a massive eyeroll, and then said: "First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. And people saw love, and guess what, that's what we wanted you to see."

"This is a love song, 'Shallow'," she continued.

"The movie, 'A Star Is Born', is a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance. Bradley, who - and you know, I never relinquish control about a live stage performance and I've done a million of them - but he directed this film and he directed, obviously, the musical moments in the film, and 'Shallow', the moment, in the film. So I knew that he had the vision for how it should go, and so I was like, 'What do you think Bradley?' And he laid it all out."

Elucidating on their chemistry, Gaga said: "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. When you're singing love songs, that's what you want people to feel."
