What Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s steamy Oscars performance really means

They should have created a separate Oscar for Irina Shayk last night for not only sharing the red carpet with Bradley’s mum as Bradley led both women out hand in hand, but also watching Gaga share her win with her co-star in a very steamy-looking performance that saw their on-screen chemistry set the stage alight live.

It’s clearly the thing in Hollywood for actors to allow their on-screen faux passion to dribble off-screen while they’re plugging their movie as fans love to believe what they’re seeing up there in the cinema might just be real.

This song between Bradley and Gaga was such a ‘moment’ though, and with Gaga newly single status it must have been a challenge for Irina to sit with a smile on her face as the fans all cooed and speculated over their two favourites canoodling by the piano.

And this was great body language.


As Bradley sidled up beside Gaga and sat with his torso part facing hers she seemed to tilt her head back in the way your cat does when it rubs against your leg and purrs when it’s feeding time it was easy to forget she was busy belting out a song and that Bradley was preparing to hit some high notes live into the microphone as the pair ‘Shall-la-lall-owed’ together.

There was some pouting lips from Gaga and then their heads tilted together and their eyes appeared to close in what looked like an intimate moment of mutual appreciation.


Bradley’s eyebrows puckered slightly in what looked like the agony of passion but which was probably more about him reaching for his higher notes. His arm was around Gaga’s waist although there was some gentlemanly subtly in the way he was able to suggest a loving touch while keeping his hand (and his pelvis when they hugged earlier) in a polite position to avoid troubling her Oscar night dress.

It’s probably just smoke and mirrors although their lingering eye contact after their song meant they did look reluctant to get out of role.

Clinging to her smile, Irina sat back between her man and Gaga in the audience, wearing what looked like a slightly fixed grin with her hands politely clasped in her lap, sitting there while Gaga leaned forward clapping and Bradley also leaned forward, laughing at Gaga over Irina’s lap after her win.
