    "First of all, like, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet. What it has done to pop culture is just, like, abysmal," Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel about the crazy romance rumors. "Yes, people saw love and -- guess what -- that's what we wanted you to see. This is a love song, 'Shallow.' The movie, A Star Is Born, is a love story."

    "Look, I've had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world," she added during the interview. "When you're singing love songs, that's what you want people to feel."
