Here's Why Everyone Is Shipping Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper | Clozette

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's chemistry has been killing it since day one of promoting A Star Is Born. Every time they perform Shallow,  we end up swooning at the undeniable romantic tension. Add to that in all the interviews and press tours they go to, they seem absolutely smitten with each other. When Bradley came to surprise Gaga in one of her Vegas shows to perform their duet together, everyone freaked out and speculated that a secret romance is indeed in session despite both having respective longtime relationships. After the rumours multiplied, Gaga's engagement with Christian Carino may have been found in hot water and eventually resulted in a split just recently. And as expected, this ignited the flames of the Bradley-Gaga-secret-relationship rumours even more. 

But at the recently concluded Oscars, everyone was shot back to reality when we saw that Bradley is in a very happy relationship with model Irina Shayk, with whom he shares a daughter. Gaga couldn't be more in bliss hanging out with them. In fact, Irina was the first to give them a standing ovation after their on-stage performance and even gave Gaga a hug when she won for Best Original Song. Obviously, there's no bad blood there at all. Whew! So why exactly can't people get enough of shipping Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in real life? Let's break it down, shall we?

They had an instant connection when they met

By now, everyone's already aware of the fact that Bradley got inspired to cast Lady Gaga as Ally in ASIB when he first heard her perform La Vie En Rose at a charity event in 2016. They've talked about this moment many times in almost all of their press tours, where Bradley admitted that he wasn't aware of Gaga's music prior to that meeting but was instantly blown away when she started singing. The next day, he immediately requested to get an opportunity to talk to her about working together. 

Right off the bat, it seemed like they hit it off well. Lady Gaga apparently prepared spaghetti and meatballs for the meeting and they realised they have a lot more in common than they initially thought. Both coming from East Coast Italian-American upbringing, Bradley shared, "We had a real synchronicity on that level from our upbringing." Cute, right?

Lady Gaga also shared that right after they had dinner that same night, they immediately headed to her piano and sang Credence Clearwater Revival's "Midnight Special." After hearing how they sounded together, they knew a perfect match was created. This is why Bradley reportedly fought for Lady Gaga to play the role of Ally in the movie even when Warner Bros. was initially hesitant about the idea. 

They helped each other cross into other forms of art

Gaga is really more of a musician and not an actress, but because Bradley really believed she is perfect for the role, they helped each other in making it work. This led to them hanging out and bonding within and outside of the film set, with nothing but good things to say about their working relationship. Gaga has said multiple times that she's thankful to Bradley for believing in her; it has even turned into a meme because of how many times she said it. Gaga has also said that she has never had a closer artistic relationship with anyone else than Bradley.

Meanwhile, Bradley said he "loves [Gaga] so deeply," and it's because they're "at their most vulnerable together." With this, it can easily be seen why they have an amazing relationship together, considering that they helped each other cross into other forms of art —with Gaga in acting and Bradley in music and directing.

A Star Is Born truly became a special project for both of them

From their immediate connection to developing a very supportive professional and artistic relationship, it is safe to say that A Star Is Born is a place where Bradley and Gaga became creative soulmates. It definitely served a lot of firsts for the both of them, making it inevitably a project that's one for the books. Not to mention that they must've learned a lot from each other's crafts throughout the project and having another person who shares the same vision is like finding an immediate best friend. In all honesty, we feel like people are just projecting the love story of their characters in the film to their chemistry in real life but in reality, not everything has to be linked to romance. Here, we see two people who went out of their comfort zones and created a great piece of art from it, and it's an experience they can only share with each other. So as we wish them both the best separately on the romance department, here's a massive cheer for Bradley and Gaga's adorable friendship. 

P.S. Their roles as Jack and Ally still hold our shipping flag, though.
