When the songstress' first single off her upcoming fifth album, Joanne, hit the airwaves, fans immediately began speculating that the song had been crafted as an ode to Gaga's paused engagement to the Chicago Fire star.
Two months after addressing their unexpected break on social media, Gaga released the track with a chorus that rang, "It wasn't love. It was a perfect illusion."
"I would just say that my music on my album as well as all my albums is inspired by my personal life and this one more than others," she explained to E! News when asked about the song's meaning. "I have said it before—I love Taylor so much and he's my best friend."
