Will Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper do a ‘surprise’ set at Glastonbury?

Lady Gaga returns to her hotel after performing at the Apollo theater

It STILL cracks me up when people downright insist that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper had the most amazing chemistry ever in A Star Is Born. It’s a matter of opinion and a matter of perception, of course, but some of y’all act like you’ve never seen Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in a movie together, or Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant, or Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson. To the Gaga-Bradley shippers, I’ll give you this: the most chemistry they had, ever, was during their Oscar performance this year. That was really beautiful and you could feel that they really rehearsed it and worked on it. But the film? Nah.

Still, the shippers keep wanting to put Gaga and Bradley together, especially now that his relationship with Irina Shayk is over. I think Gaga and Bradley were both in New York the past few days – he was photographed in New York last week, spending time with his daughter, and Lady Gaga was photographed last night before and after her gig at the Apollo. Is it possible they had a discreet meet-up and they’re secretly together? LOL. Is it possible that they did meet up and… they were working on a set for Glastonbury?

Glastonbury takes place from June 26-29, and this year features headliners like The Killers, Janet Jackson, the Cure, Vampire Weekend and Miley Cyrus. Speculation that Cooper, 44, and Gaga, 33, would be teaming up as Jackson Maine and Ally once again kicked off Sunday, when radio DJ Edith Bowman said on a British TV show that she might have some intel on a secret Glastonbury performer.

“Well, I may know one, but I can’t possibly say,” she said, before recalling Cooper’s appearance on her podcast Soundtracking. Bowman said the actor revealed he’d been in discussions with the festival’s organizers about possibly playing a show. “I had Bradley Cooper [on] talking about A Star Is Born. And when I spoke to him, I was like, ‘I just wanna see you guys do a gig, play it live.’ And he was like, ‘Jackson’s dead!’ ” she recalled. “He said, ‘Well, we have been talking to Nick [Dewey, Glastonbury booker] and Emily about it – we’d do The Park Stage.”

That was the rumor. But it got shut down by the festival organizer Emily Eavis:

Which could just be a feint to surprise people when Bradley walks out on stage to sing “Alejandro” with Gaga. Or whatever. My point is that… sure, they might perform together again at some point. And sure, they might be in the same city at the same time. But are they together? If you want to believe…

    They «  play «  with the gossips . Egocentric narcissics

  2. Michael says:

    Just saw “A Star is Born” over the weekend and she is SPECTACULAR!

  3. Skylark says:

    If Emily Eavis says it’s not happening, then it’s not happening.

  4. Lizzie says:

    i mean…if you define chemistry as him looking annoyed and her gazing up longingly at him like the girl in indiana jones with I LOVE YOU written on her eyelids.

  5. Christin says:

    No doubt they are loving the publicity.

    I had little interest in watching this remake, as I am not really a fan of either lead actor. Cue a rainy weekend and little else on TV, and I ended up watching it on cable. It was better than I expected, thanks in part to the entire cast. I thought it would be far more cheesy/OTT.

  6. Enn says:

    There were rumors that she was here in Philadelphia for his performance of Candide over the weekend but they got shut down fast (the original rumors came from the cast, so who knows).

  7. Michael says:

    You would think they would be avoiding each other now that they won an Oscar but I guess they love the attention too much. Meanwhile I see Irina smiling every day now that she is free of this mess

  8. Giddy says:

    You know who else had great on-screen chemistry? Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Acting!

    I too finally watched ASIB, and I found it totally bland. I enjoyed it but did not come away thinking it was some spectacular piece of filmmaking or one of the best movies of last year. And the movie did a horrible job selling the Allie and Jackson love story. The relationship felt rushed, unhealthy, and codependent.

    • MissG says:

      This!
      I found myself rooting for them to break up in the movie.

    • Arizona says:

      I agree. When he smashed the cake in her face and she laughed, I was like “oh no. Nope. No. Not into this love story.”

      I also felt that the editing was weird – the way it was edited made it seem like their big grand love story happened in the span of days, except there were tours and all of a sudden she was a huge pop star. I’m assuming it was actually the span of a few years, but you wouldn’t know that from watching the movie.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      That was kind of the point. it WAS an unhealthy and codependent relationship.

  10. Ann says:

    Holy cow Glastonbury looks fun! I just looked at the lineup and it’s packed with some really great artists. Not sure how Miley made the cut with so many actually talented performers…

    I couldn’t care less about Gaga and Bradley Cooper. I really hope they don’t get together because that seems so cliche and boring. Gaga runs into her fair share of cliche but she’s rarely boring.

  11. Renee says:

    Agree to disagree….I think their chemistry was great together. It was a dysfunctional relationship which was the point. So it wasn’t supposed to be a “healthy” happily ever after love story.

    • Elisa says:

      +1, I really enjoyed ASIB and loved Bradley Cooper’s singing / performance. So I hope they ARE actually performing at Glastonbury so I can see it on YT. :)

  12. JennyJenny says:

    ASIB was just OK to me.
    I could just never buy into their relationship.

    But the part that really bothered me was her first impromptu concert appearance.
    That he had somehow recalled the words to the song she sang to him, while he was drunk in the parking lot (Shallow) and then he had a huge arrangement created for it.
    Then she shows up and their performance was perfect. Oh Really??

    I’ll take Kris Kristofferson please!

  13. Alex Schuster says:

    She will totally do a disservice to herself if she goes for this douche

    I thought of it like real supernovas in the sky…one star is blazing and then another one is new and the old star is dying…
    I thought this movie was like a passing of torches… the cake in the face was rough – but it captured what real life celebrity professional jealous mud really be like (and why marriages don’t last in Hollywood). You may love someone and you both love your work… but if you slip and your partner is on the way up- there is jealousy as a true factor.. most people day to day don’t do the same line of work as thier significant other so it’s a hard thing for most people to relate to…
