Lady Gaga is ‘crazy about’ her boyfriend, whom she met through charity work

After coming off two very public relationships with Taylor Kinney and Christian Carino, Lady Gaga seems to have found real love. Gaga, 34, debuted her new relationship with tech investor Michael Polansky, 37, last year during Super Bowl weekend in Miami. She posted a photo of them cuddled up on a boat. Gaga met Polansky while doing charity work and despite their external differences (she’s an over the top pop star and he’s a tech investor) they really hit it off. They even spent quarantine together in 2020. If that didn’t sour the relationship then this might be a keeper.

Another awesome thing about Gaga’s new beau is he doesn’t seem to compete for the spotlight like her last two relationships. Polansky is said to love standing on the sidelines cheering Gaga on and blending in with the crowd. He demonstrated that at the Inauguration last week. As Gaga performed Michael just blended into the audience and cheered her on proudly. Afterwards Gaga could be heard introducing Polansky as her boyfriend to everyone. How adorable is that? Below is more on the story from People:

An insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday, that the pop star, 34, is “crazy about” her tech investor boyfriend of one year.

Last week, Gaga and Polansky, 37, put their love on display when they attended President Joe Biden’s inauguration in Washington, D.C, together. After Gaga delivered a high-spirited performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the event, the couple were captured exchanging a sweet kiss — with their masks on! — before watching Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris get sworn in.

“Gaga had a blast at the Inauguration and was in the best spirits,” says a source close to the singer. “She’s very happy with Michael and feels grateful for his support.”

Polansky, meanwhile, was more than happy to cheer on Gaga from the wings.

“He was content to hang in the background and blended in,” says an attendee. “To the few people Gaga encountered backstage inside the Capitol, she’d say, ‘This is my boyfriend.’

“On the outside, Gaga and Michael seem very different,” says the insider. “When they step out together, he always looks casual in jeans and a cap, while Gaga is usually more noticeable.”

Over the last year, though, sources say they’ve formed a deep bond as they focus on making positive changes in the world through their professions.

“They are both hard working and love working together on charity projects,” says the insider. “They have not been sitting around during the lockdown and instead focused on where they can do good. They want to help out where they can.”

I am so happy for Gaga. I knew Gaga would need to find someone not in the business to keep her grounded. I love Polansky for her because it seems that he is ok with her stardom, doesn’t feel a need to make her feel she has to dull her shine, and just simply supports her. It also seems like they have real chemistry.

I think it is so adorable that Gaga invited Polansky into her world and was proudly declaring him as her person. I also loved that because Gaga felt Polansky went unnoticed at the Inauguration, she posted a picture of them mask kissing at the performance. Gaga just seem so very happy and GROUNDED. I have been hoping that Gaga would find something solid because the last few years have been tough on her. I know she talked about feeling drained and burnt out having to fight sexism and the boys club in the industry so this relationship is so beautiful to me. I know it’s sappy, but I am a ridiculous romantic and as a fan of Gaga since her first album, I have just wanted to see her loved and protected. Also, her new man ain’t bad looking either, I’m just saying. Anyways, I hope this relationship goes the distance and I feel that it will. Many relationships that have longevity started when people bonded over their shared love of philanthropy. Good luck to Gaga, it is good to see her smiling.

    I know looks can be deceiving but he looks like a good person.

  2. Darla says:

    Yeah, he’s hot.

  3. sunny says:

    He’s hot. Aside from that, relationships that start from a place of shared value have a good chance at being successful.

  4. Eleonor says:

    He looks like a nice guy, happy for Gaga.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    She looks very happy; he looks stunning.

  6. Kcat says:

    He has kind eyes, which is my thing.

  7. Joanna says:

    Aww, He looks very in love with her! I want someone to look at me like that. I bet they get married

  8. Daphne says:

    As a Alexis would say, “I love this journey for you.”

  9. Div says:

    He’s a good looking guy, and I agree that it’s probably good for her to have a low key partner who is not only out of the spotlight but doesn’t care about it. I think it’s easier for a lot of the major celebrities to either have an equally famous partner or someone who is not in the industry at all in terms of acting/singing/etc.

    Anyone would probably be better than her last serious partner, though. Her ex was old enough to be her father & while stans overreact all the time and make stuff up…there certainly seemed to be some weird stuff besides the age difference. This guy seems miles better already.

  10. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I’m glad you wrote about them. I love them together. He’s handsome and has kind eyes. I hope they go the distance too!

  11. Jess says:

    At the end of the day, Lady Gaga is still “Stefani from a close-knit NYC Italian family.” She probably just really wanted a nice, real guy who finds her charming rather than a threat to their career or whatever. They’re adorable together and I hope they live happily ever after.

  12. Christine says:

    All I can think about is that cringe article his ex-girlfriend wrote about her ex dating Lady Gaga

  13. K says:

    Oooh those beautiful eyes…get it, Lady G

  14. Dee Kay says:

    This could be the real thing, I hope so for Gaga’s sake. She’s a genius and has had a remarkable life but in her interviews I’ve gotten a sense that what she really wants is an Act Two in a committed marriage, and a comfortable and safe home environment. She’s had enough personal drama to last twenty lifetimes, she seems like what she wants and needs next is a calm and steady kind of love.

  15. Amelie says:

    Good for her! I hope he’s a keeper. I do admit I really loved her with Taylor Kinney and was hoping it would last forever. Looking at her exes, she definitely has a type haha. And she has good taste.
