Fans still hoping for A Star Is Born co-stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to become a real life couple will just have to keep waiting.
Cooper and Gaga were recently rumored to have gone on a romantic getaway months after the release of A Star Is Born. In fact, an alleged photo of the co-stars also made headlines.
Over the weekend, a grainy photograph in a British tabloid purported to show Cooper and Gaga enjoying a romantic getaway together in France. However, not only was that not Lady Gaga – it wasn’t even a woman.
British tabloid The Sun reports that Cooper was actually seen lunching in a restaurant in Provence with U2’s Bono and Bono’s lifelong pal Derek Rowan, aka Guggi – who happens to have long silver hair. The painter and sculptor was also the founder of cult goth band Virgin Prunes.
A source also said that Cooper and Gaga have not seen each other in months. Cooper was just in France for a short vacation.

EMMA WATSON AND TOM FELTON FUEL DATING RUMORS – (08/20/2019)
Emma Watson and Tom Felton have been friends since childhood, but many think that after playing booksmart heroine Hermione Granger and villain Draco Malfoy, their Harry Potter-spawned relationship blossomed into something more.
Felton, 31, recently shared a shot of himself and Watson, 29, in South Africa playing guitar while wearing PJs.
“Quick learner x,” Felton captioned the shot.
Fans took in the news with glee. “Just so you know, the little fangirl part in me just hyperventilated thanks to you guys,” one commenter wrote.
“My dramione wishes has been granted,” another added with the pair’s ship name, while another commenter suggested, “Hell yeah FELTSON.”
The pair have stoked romance rumors before on Instagram. Adding fuel to the fire, she admitted in a 2012 interview to being obsessed with him.
She said: “Between the ages of 10 and 12 I had a really terrible crush on Tom Felton. We love a bad guy, and he was a few years older and he had a skateboard and that just did it really,” Watson gushed at the time. “He used to do tricks on it. He was so cool. He totally knew [I had a crush]. And the thing is, he’d turn and go, ‘Oh, I see her in a younger sisterly way.’ And it just broke my heart, still does.”

TAYLOR SWIFT SINGS ‘YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN’ A CAPPELLA IN NEW COMMERCIAL – (08/20/2019)
You can now hear Taylor Swift singing with no musical background at all.
In a new commercial for Amazon Music, an animation of Taylor’s disembodied lips flutters through a garden of blooming flowers, plants, butterflies, a snake and a cat statue, while singing an a cappella version of “You Need to Calm Down.” As they sing, the lips change from red, to purple, to rainbow, to sprinkle-covered, to glitter.
“Alexa, play the new Taylor Swift on Amazon Music,” says a voiceover, followed by the regular version of the song.
“A voice is all you need,” reads the tagline. Taylor captioned the video, “@amazonmusic: what color lips would you like for this commercial? Me: yes.”
Sharp-eyed fans notice yet another Easter egg in the ad. In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the ad, one butterfly’s wings spell out “Cruel Summer,” which is a track on Swift’s new album, Lover, which arrives Friday.
The “Cruel Summer” butterfly is black and white in a video that is full of color, leading to further suspicions: will the song reference the theme or time period of Swift’s Reputation album – as one fan on Twitter pointed out: “Why does the Cruel Summer butterfly look like it’s still living in the rep era?”
“Cruel Summer” was also an Easter egg in Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video – Ellen DeGeneres is seen getting tattooed with the phrase.
No details have been confirmed about “Cruel Summer,” other than it being the second song on Lover’s tracklist, but its appearance in the clip has left many speculating that it could be an upcoming single.
Taylor will perform on ABC’s Good Morning America Thursday.
