Lady Gaga released her first new solo single in three years, Perfect Illusion, last week and everyone loved it.

But the one thing fans couldn’t help asking was whether some of the lyrics referred to her split from Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney or not.

The Born This Way singer revealed in July she and Taylor had been “taking a break” and urged fans to support them.

In a post on Instagram Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, said she and Taylor “always believed we are soulmates”.

She wrote: “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. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.’”

The singer addressed the issue about whether the song referred to Taylor or not doing an interview with SiriusXM’s Radio Andy show, hosted by Andy Cohen.

She said: “I love Taylor so, so much and this song is not a hit out against Taylor. He’s my best friend. 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, that my sister has in her relationship. It’s a record about all of us, you know? And I would never use my song or want to use the public to hurt anyone that I love so much.”

So, there you have it.
