Cryptic message?! Lady Gaga finally released ‘Perfect Illusion’ on Sept. 8, causing fans to freak out about it’s powerful message! So, could the lyrics be ALL about her ex-fiance Taylor Kinney? See the responses to her new single right here!
Lady Gaga, 30, treated her fans to the painfully romantic single “Perfect Illusion” on Sept. 8, after a staggering year-long wait! So, obviously her little monsters were listening closely to the powerful new lyrics, “it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion.” This seemed to draw an even bigger question from her fans. Is it about her split with her ex Taylor Kinney? The Chicago Fire star and Gaga broke up in July 2016 after spending five years together, so maybe she’s finally coming clean. See fans losing their minds about the song here:

Gaga teased her high-tempo jam via Instagram, getting fans pumped about her first new song in three years. It’s been a long time coming, considering how the “Bad Romance” singer hasn’t released music since her last album ARTPOP. As many artists know, pain can serve as a powerful source of inspiration, so we can’t help but think her new jam has something to do with Taylor. Her vulnerable lyrics state, “My guessing game is strong, Way too real to be wrong, Caught up in your show, Yeah, at least now I know.” Aww.
Gaga met Taylor on the set of her “You and I” music video in 2011 and they’ve been through so much together. Despite their breakup, she did give fans a bit of hope that they could reconcile in the future. “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates,” she wrote in July. “Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on.”
