Lady Gaga was not pleased during a particularly tense moment onstage during her Sin City residency at the Park MGM on June 9. As Mother Monster was about to sing her hit song “Shallow” from the film A Star Is Born — as a solo rather than a duet with co-star Bradley Cooper — this New Yorker had had it with her hecklers.
Apparently, at least a few of them shouted their thoughts regarding Gaga and her leading man becoming a real-life couple. Those very vocal fans didn’t hold back, asking the headliner where Cooper was and other out-of-context queries. Apparently, these concertgoers had already heard that Cooper was no longer living with his baby mama, Irina Shayk, and that the talented headliner was no longer engaged to Christian Carino.
She told her hecklers to “…be kind or f*ck off,” as reported by Lilly Nice on The Gal Post.
Then, with that moment behind her, the sassy headliner performed the love song to an excited yet somewhat agitated crowd. While the exchange prior to the performance was a low point, a high point was on the books, too. Last night, at her Las Vegas venue, the “Bad Romance” hit-maker was joined onstage by legendary crooner Tony Bennett.
The veteran singer was there to duet on the classic “The Lady is a Tramp” — a song with no disrespect intended and with no connection to the heated debate as to whether or not Lady Gaga and her co-star were now an item.

Speaking of “Bad Romance,” the iconic Bellagio fountain on the Las Vegas Strip was dancing to the song on the same evening when the uncomfortable moment occurred.

After her jazz act was over for the time being, Lady Gaga continued to sing. Her next stop was another venue at the MGM Park, the same hotel in which she temporarily resides. As she has done many times in the past when in Sin City, Lady Gaga hit up Brian Newman at his residency called “After Dark.”
Newman, a trumpet player and vocalist, entertains in a lounge act at the hotel’s NoMad Restaurant. Whenever she drops by, Lady Gaga tends to offer support. She will even sit in with her former bandleader and friend who was called “a bright light” by Las Vegas Weekly.

On this last occasion, Lady Gaga — swathed in a chic red dress and matching hat (as seen above) — took time to wind down after a particularly intense yet impressive evening on stage in Sin City. No doubt this hardworking talent had earned that little bit of respite.
