We’ve all heard her music, we’ve all danced and sung along to her songs. We’ve also seen her in movies and television shows. Lady Gaga is one of the entertainment industry’s top performing artist. She has won many awards from the Grammy’s, MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), American Music Awards (AMA), and the Oscar’s to just mention a few.
Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, Lady Gaga was born in New York in 1986. At a young age, this megastar started playing the piano at age four. Encouraged by her parents, Lady Gaga was enrolled in Creative Arts Camp. Later, she attended Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute to study method acting and did so for ten years.
Before becoming the iconic legend we know her today, Lady Gaga interned at Famous Music Publishing. This landed her a music publishing deal with Sony. Because of this, she wrote songs for big-name artists like Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls, and Fergie to just name a few.
It was in 2008 when her music career skyrocketed and permanently established her as the rising star in the music industry. With her music career on the rise, she performed at many venues and sold many copies of her music. She created music videos for her work and later appeared in television shows and movies.
Lady Gaga’s Rocky Relationships
Being a superstar isn’t just about glamour and fame. “What about relationships?” You ask.
Today, we take a closer look at one of Lady Gaga’s relationships. Specifically, who Gaga was (was? More on that later) engaged to. “So who was Gaga engaged to? How did they meet?” You ask.
Lady Gaga was engaged to Taylor Kinney. Taylor Kinney is known for his roles in Chicago Fire and in The Vampire Diaries. He played as Lieutenant Kelly Severide and Mason Lockwood, respectively.
So how did Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney meet?
It was during the filming of Lady Gaga’s music video, “You and I” when black-hearted balloons started to circle around them. In 2011, the music video for You and I looked as if it were a mix of horror stories blended in a blender then stirred. The final concoction was a twisted romantic musical smoothie.
Taylor Kinney played as Lady Gaga’s captor in the video. Lady Gaga played a number of characters in the video. However, one specific character she played on the video was of a mermaid held captive. Throughout the video, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney locked eyes, embraced, and ultimately married in a Lady Gaga production kind-of-way.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney’s relationship began to grow and later the two got engaged in 2015. So now you’re probably wondering about the “was” that I previously mentioned. At the back of your mind, you are also probably wondering who is Lady Gaga’s ex-fiance. Which we move on to …
“How long were they together?” You ask. After about five years of being together and about a year into the engagement, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney decided to throw in the shovel, I mean towel. Yes, they called it quits. They were no clear reasons behind the breakup.
Specifically, the two did not reveal the true reason behind the break up (at the time). However, in Lady Gaga’s documentary “Gaga: Five Foot Two” she sheds some light on the demise of their relationship. She says, “they [Taylor and Gaga] were fighting a lot”.
She goes in detail and talks about a time when shooting the first scenes of “A Star Is Born”, that she and Taylor were continuing to fight and this ultimately led to their break up. Lady Gaga’s famous statement graces the numerous sources available online, “My threshold for b——- with men is just — I don’t have one anymore. In relationships, you have to move together.”
She then talks about her love life and her career. Generally, she conveys it in a way telling us that when her career blooms and flourishes, her love life dies and withers away. She goes on to detail her past relationships including Taylor. She says that in pivotal moments in her career she “lost” whomever she was with at the time. She then says, “I did a movie and lose Taylor”. She also says this “is the third time” she’s had her “heart broken like this”.
So that was that, or what is it?
Why Did Taylor Kinney Throw Shade At Lady Gaga After She Won An Oscar
As previously mentioned, Lady Gaga landed the lead role in the movie “A Star Is Born”. This movie also landed her an Oscar. Lady Gaga’s first Oscar. Because of the movie, Taylor and Gaga split up. Yep, we know that now. We haven’t really heard much from Taylor post break up and we haven’t really heard his side of the story. To be honest, he didn’t really say anything or revealed anything about it. Until one particular incident occurred. Specifically, a “like” on social media.
Shortly after Lady Gaga won her Oscar, Taylor Kinney posted a picture on social media with a friend in Chicago. Fans took to his social media account to leave comments. There was one specific comment that ignited and fueled an online comment war between fans of both Taylor and Gaga.
This comment stated, “Stoked you got away from Gaga.” It then followed with a hashtag “#Hollyweird”. This was only half the ingredient to the controversy, the other half was the “like” made by Taylor Kinney. Now when someone “likes” a post, everyone knows that generally means we are in agreement with what was posted. Gaga fans posted their rebuttals. The war of comments began.
It was later said that Taylor Kinney indicated that the “like” was an accident. He did not intend to “like” the comment and that there was no shade thrown. He went back to his post on social media and included his own comments. He goes on to comment and said that he is “sorry for the “like” and that he is “only proud and happy for Stef”.
