Mel B had a few things to say about Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s intimate Oscars performance on “Good Morning Britain” Monday.
The Spice Girls star chatted to the likes of Piers Morgan about Cooper’s other half Irina Shayk watching from the audience, insisting the whole thing was rather uncomfortable.
Mel said, according to Hello!: “I felt so uncomfortable for Bradley’s girlfriend, oh my gosh,” as Morgan replied of Gaga and Cooper’s “Shallow” performance: “It was the look of love, wasn’t it?”
Mel then said, “It really was and that’s the whole gossip. That’s the whole thing,” as Morgan pointed out: “Lady Gaga taking her engagement ring off – she just broke off from her fiance – and if you put the maths together, you have engagement ring off, and then staring at Bradley Cooper in a way that I would say crosses a few lines.”
Mel shared: “I would like to think it was part of the whole performance, because there’s a women’s code and hopefully that’s not… hopefully it’s only professional.”
Gaga picked up the award for “Shallow” in the Best Song category during Sunday’s star-studded ceremony.
She told the audience: “Thank you so much to the Academy for this wonderful honour. Thank you to every single person in this room. Thank you to Mark Ronson, to Anthony Rossomando, to Andrew Wyatt my co-writers, I love them so much. To my sister, my soul mate, I love you.”
The musician added of Cooper, “My family is here, I love you, mum and dad. Bradley, there is not a single person on the planet that could’ve sung this song with me but you. Thank you for believing in us, thank you so much.”
