After hearing that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “amazing chemistry” in A Star Is Born didn’t help his relationship with Irina Shayk, Gaga has found a way to get people to stop talking about her being the demise of Bradley and Irina by kissing a married man onstage. Why not try to drown one lukewarm scandal with an even more lukewarm scandal?
According to Us Weekly:
Lady Gaga planted a kiss on her married trumpet player, Brian Newman, during her Las Vegas Jazz and Piano residency on Saturday, June 15, following her split from ex-fiancé Christian Carino.
In a video posted to the Gaga Daily Twitter page, the A Star Is Born actress, 33, can be seen serenading Newman while holding his hand before she sings the lyrics, “Darling, kiss me.” At that point, Gaga leaned in and locked lips with the musician.
I bet Irina is starting a group text with all the wives and girlfriends of people Gaga has publicly made out for “art” and there’s an over use of the eggplant, red dress lady dancing, and barf emojis happening.
But sources say that Gaga and Brian, who I thought was K.D. Lang for a quick minute, getting kissy is all part of their schtick.
However, a source tells Us Weekly: “There is nothing to see here. Gaga is a performer, and it was a playful, harmless part of her act. She and Brian have had an incredible friendship for years and see each other as family.”
Many fans took the comments section of the video to point out the fact that Newman is married to wife Angie Pontani. “I know they are friends since…. Forever. But Christ’s sake, he [is] married!!! GAGA should behave better,” one wrote. Another added with a smiley face emoji: “His wife was there!”
Also in the show, Gaga gave the audience a view of her grinding on Brian’s lap, as Angie sat in the audience, making a mental note to charge her extra for that grind since only the kiss was in his contract!
Below is the stunt queen kiss, and prepare to see more of it, because I’m sure it’ll make the cover of a tabloid with the headline: BRADLEY COOPER GOES OFF THE DEEP END AFTER LADY GAGA LEAVES HIM FOR MARRIED TRUMPET PLAYER BRIAN!
