Taylor Kinney is making his first appearances, since his split from Lady Gaga, leading Howard Stern to ask the Joanne artist how she feels about Kinney these days. What may be surprising is that, instead of dodging questions relating to her break up with Taylor, Lady Gaga was forthcoming about the romance and the ensuing split. She tells Howard what she loved best about Taylor, why she still loves Kinney, and what she thinks about the idea of her former flame again entering the dating scene.
Does Lady Gaga Want Taylor Kinney Back?
Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other.
Hearts worldwide may have been broken by the news that Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney had broken up several months ago, but, as People now reveals, there’s still a strong bond between the two former lovers. In fact, Lady Gaga recently told Howard Stern that she and Kinney still love one another.
“I hate to sound like a hippie, but I kind of am one and so is he. We love each other, that’s it,” Lady Gaga told Stern. “It’s just about life changes, and we all go through different stages and we’re focused on different things.”
Lady Gaga went on to explain that Taylor was supportive of her, even more so than she had ever expected. Gaga’s fans are familiar with the drastic transitions she has gone through from time to time and, while some might find that a little too much to deal with on a day to day basis, Ms. Gaga says Kinney has always stood by her. She credits Taylor for being open-minded and for supporting her through everything.
Taylor’s supportive nature isn’t just limited to Lady Gaga’s sense of fashion. Recently, the pop singer revealed that some of the music on her latest album, Joanne, was inspired by her romance with Kinney. Gaga says Taylor has been “super supportive” of the ways in which she expresses herself through her music.
With Gaga gushing over her ever evolving relationship with Taylor Kinney, one has to wonder how a new love interest for the Chicago Fire star might change things. Lady Gaga was asked how she will feel once Taylor Kinney begins dating again.
“I’m not going to f—ing throw a party!”
Could Lady Gaga be holding out for a rekindling of their romance?
Lady Gaga And Her Father Celebrate Joanne With Matching Tattoos
By now, most of Lady Gaga’s fans know that the title of her new album is in reference to her late Aunt Joanne, who’s life was claimed by Lupus complications at a young age, as reported by Billboard. The album seeks to honor her memory and, as Lady Gaga now reveals, both she and her father have also gotten matching Joanne tattoos.
“Got Joanne tattooed on my arm in her actual signature,” Lady Gaga captioned a picture of her own Joanne tattoo. “My dad got one too. With an angel on his shoulder.”
During her visit with Howard Stern, Ms. Gaga shared that even though her aunt had passed away at 19, her memory has always had a huge impact on her entire family.
“She’s like this goddess that we worshipped in our family our whole lives,” Lady Gaga said of her late aunt, Joanne Germanotta. “Her picture was always up, and it was framed so beautifully in the house. We talked about her all the time, every family meal… she was like a guardian angel or spirit guide.”
Lady Gaga also shared that the influence Joanne had on her family wasn’t always positive. She recalls that her father was so devastated by Joanne’s death that he turned to alcohol and developed a fear of letting go of those in his life. Ms. Gaga says her father’s possessiveness grew so strong that he feared letting anyone move away or show any other signs of independence.
Earlier in her life, Lady Gaga says she thought her father’s behavior was her own fault.
“So this album for me was about healing the wounds of being a young woman growing up in a tough family and figuring that out,” said Lady Gaga.
