Lady Gaga Tells Fans “Be Kind Or F— Off” During Las Vegas Concert – Was She Defending Bradley Cooper? [VIDEO]
Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous and sometimes unexpected behavior during her concerts. During her most recent Enigma show in Las Vegas, the star was recorded by fans in the audience giving a speech about finding acceptance and understanding for the LGBTQ community. The video, shared by an audience member, quickly gained attention when the singer is heard ending her speech saying, “Oh, and one more thing, be kind or f— off.”

There was a lot of speculation as to why she would end her uplifting speech that way, and many fans and members of the audience have taken to sharing their theories online, claiming that Gaga heard the crowd shouting “where is Bradley?” which caused the singer to become upset and send a message to her fans.
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s relationship has been questioned since the release of their film A Star Is Born and that was only heightened further during award season when the pair performed their song, “Shallow,” at the Oscars. The intimate performance sent the internet into overdrive and sparked romance rumors like never before. Since then, rumors between them haven’t cooled down, especially in the wake of news that Cooper and his long-time girlfriend Irina Shayk have split only months after Lady Gaga and her fiance announced their separation.
Although no heckling can be heard in the video, Gaga’s fans online seem to have mixed ideas as to why the singer seemed so upset. Some concert goers online claim that the message had nothing to do with fans mentioning Cooper, others are arguing with that logic, stating that Gaga sent a clear message to her fans – to stop the rumors.
This wouldn’t be the first time Gaga has shut down rumors about her relationship with Cooper. After their Oscar performance, Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel when asked about her relationship with her co-star, “First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. And people saw love, and guess what, that’s what we wanted you to see.”
Whether Gaga ended her speech to her fans to send a message about spreading love or stopping the Bradley-talk, it’s clear that she’s over the rumors.
