Lady Gaga: “‘Perfect Illusion’ is not about my ex-fiancé”
Since Lady Gaga has dropped her new single “Perfect Illusion,” dedicated to a fake love wich seemed to be perfect but in the end came out to be only an illusion, everybody is wondering if the lyrics could be inspired by the singer’s ex-fiancè Taylor Kinney, the man she was supposed to marry late this year.
Lady Gaga debuted ‘Perfect Illusion’ last week (Sep09). The chorus reads: “Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion, you were a perfect illusion”.
The pop singer has insisted that her new single is not about him: “I love Taylor so, so much and this song is not a hit out against him,” she told SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen. “This song is just about… I’m sure not only feelings that I’ve had but that he’s had, that my friends have had, my sister has in her relationship… it’s a record about all of us. And I would never use my song or want to use the public to hurt anyone that I love so much.”
Gaga added that the song is also about the “illusion that people have of me every day… and I think that that’s transferred to everyone with social media” she explained, “Now we all have these perfect illusions that we get to create on our different accounts and you feel like you’ve got to live up to that in real life.”
The “Bad Romance” hitmaker talked about the song also during a radio interview, some days ago. She said: “This song is not a hit out against Taylor. He’s my best friend.”
The couple had been together for five years. Finding love again won’t be simple for Gaga, who admitted she is struggling to meet new men: “It’s not that easy to meet new people, no, like just strangers which I miss, I do.” she told.
