Lady Gaga Talks About Taylor Kinney's Connection to 'Perfect Illusion'
The 30-year-old singer previously said that the song was not about him, but instead feelings that she, him, and others have had about relationships.
“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,” Gaga said in a new interview with E! News. “I have said it before—I love Taylor so much and he’s my best friend.”
“This video is a performance of a song that I wrote of that moment about how I feel, but how I’m sure he’s felt sometimes, how you have felt sometimes, how other people feel in relationships, how I see my friends struggle and become just full of rage and anger as they try to figure out how to date during a time when everybody’s sort of creating these perfect illusions of themselves on the Internet and nobody really knows what’s real and what isn’t,” Gaga added. “It’s about all of that.”
