The morning after the show, which saw them cheek to cheek as they performed “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, the internet is still abuzz over their cozy display. While he was there with his longtime partner, model Irina Shayk, who cheered them on, folks on social media can’t help stop speculating there’s more to their bond.
Gaga, who recently called off her engagement, and Cooper were told to “get a room” in one tweet, which has been widely liked and reshared.

Comedian Paula Poundstone’s observation that she thought Cooper and Gaga were “going to have sex on the piano” also received lots of likes.

David Spade was more blunt, posting a picture of the pair locking eyes onstage on Instagram and writing, “Is there any chance these 2 aren’t f***king?”
And while Shayk was reportedly the “first up out of her seat” to give Cooper and Gaga a standing ovation, the internet can’t stop, won’t stop writing its own storyline. Some of the memes:

Bradley Cooper telling his girlfriend he’s not in love with Lady Gaga was the Oscar performance of the night.

But while people are having fun speculating that there’s something more going on between Gaga and the one person out of 100 in a room that believed in her, there are many who don’t think the topic should even be entertained. After all, Cooper and Shayk are parents to a daughter, born in 2017. The chatter was dubbed “disturbing” and “disrespectful.”
I know I am in the minority here, but the number of people wishing Bradley Cooper would leave his girlfriend and child to have a relationship with Lady Gaga is really disturbing.

Y’all need to stop rooting for Bradley Cooper to leave his girlfriend (the mother of his child) to be with Gaga. Stop it.

I think its wildly disrespectful that so many people openly ship Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga with complete disregard for his long-term relationship with girlfriend and mother of his child, Irina Shayk.

While Gaga didn’t win Best Actress for her performance, she did pick up her first Oscar for Best Original Song for “Shallow,” along with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. During her speech, she thanked Cooper, who also directed A Star Is Born, saying, “Bradley, there is not a single person on the planet that could’ve sang this song with me but you. Thank you for believing in us.” Gaga and Shayk also shared a sweet hug during the show.
