Lady Gaga Stirs Up Controversy During Concert Kiss With Married Man
In a viral video posted to Twitter, the "Shallow" hitmaker is seen performing alongside her longtime friend and trumpet player Brian Newman. The footage shows her serenading him as she holds his hand on stage before singing the lyrics, “Darling, kiss me." She then leaned in for a kiss and the two locked lips as the crowd cheered them on.
Check out the video, below:
Though the stage kiss seemed super harmless, people on Twitter aren't exactly pleased with Gaga.
They also couldn't help but compare her recent show to her intimate performance with Bradley Cooper at the 2019 Oscars. The pair's obvious on-screen chemistry sparked affair rumors which led many to speculate whether she's the reason the actor and his longtime partner Irina Shayk broke up earlier this month.
However, sources told Us Weekly, Gaga's kiss with Newman really wasn't a big deal because the two have been friends for years. She's even the godmother to his child with wife Angie Pontani.
“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," the insider explained.
