Ever since Lady Gaga called off her engagement with ex-fiancé Christian Carino, the “Shallow” singer’s fans have speculated about her love life. Well, in a recent Instagram, the A Star Is Born actress got the rumor mill swirling again when she posted a photo of herself wearing an off-the-shoulder top, with a bouquet of white roses in focus in the foreground.
“Italians cook with love ❤️,” she captioned the shot. As her die-hard fans all know by now, Lady Gaga—born Stefani Germanotta—is Italian. Her parents even own an Italian restaurant.
Though Gaga’s heritage isn’t really news, some followers zeroed in on the love part of her message, with one commenting: “Are you in love?? Gaga??? ????”
Last month, the popstar was spotted kissing her audio engineer Dan Horton at a Los Angeles brunch spot. Still, that didn’t stop fans from speculating that her A Star is Born co-star Bradley Cooper was somehow involved in the romantic shot.
“Where’s Bradley hiding?” one follower commented. “Did Bradley take this picture? Love you queen ❤️” another fan wrote.
“good to know bradley is Italian x,” said yet another.
Earlier this month, a photo of Bradley vacationing with a platinum blonde made the rounds online, but it turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. At the Chateau La Coste in Provence, Bradley had lunch with U2 frontman Bono. A person with long, blonde hair was seated next to him, leading fans to believe it was Gaga. Turns out, it was Guggi (real name: Derek Rowen), a 60-year-old Irish artist, according to The Sun. A source told the tabloid Bradley and Gaga haven’t seen each other “for months.”
So, who is Gaga in love with? That’s still unknown and could very well be no one. The ultra-talented singer has preached self-love in the past, notably with her hit song “Born This Way,” so perhaps the real answer is Gaga herself.
Of course, the simplest explanation for the photo’s cryptic caption could also be that it’s just a cute picture of Gaga sharing her love for her Italian roots…and delicious food.
