For those of you (OK, us) mourning the end of Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney‘s engagement and five-year relationship, and grieving the idea of no more polar dips and red carpet goodness — NOT. SO. FAST. It seems the couple is merely “taking a break” and want to make it work. That’s right, that sound you heard, and gust of wind you may have just felt, was a collective sigh of relief from all the Little Monsters out there, hoping there was still hope.
While her rep clarified all to People magazine, it was Gaga’s post that reassured all her fans (and Taylor’s as well) to keep rooting for them.
Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. 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.
With him back in Chicago for his TV series and her being busy working on new songs, they never have time for each other. And it’s understandable, especially when you’re not in the same city or state (though… can’t Gaga find a studio and writing space in the Windy City?). That said, maybe this is just the kind of timeout these two need to realize that they’re willing to do anything to make it work. Their relationship might be unconventional, but it’s filled with lots of love. Isn’t that all you need?
