Lady Gaga 'loves' her ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga still "loves" her ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney.

The 30-year-old singer songwriter - who ended her five-year romance with the 'Chicago Fire' actor in July this year - adores her former partner and counts him as her "best friend", but implies in her new album 'Joanne' their romance was a "perfect illusion".

Speaking to E! News about her relationship with the dark-haired heartthrob, she said: "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.

"I have said it before - I love Taylor so much and he's my best friend."

And the blonde beauty has revealed her song 'Perfect Illusion', which features the line "It wasn't love. It was a perfect illusion", and the accompanying music video is a reflection of how she felt during their relationship together.

She explained: "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. It's about all of that.

And the 'Bad Romance' hitmaker has revealed she never rehearsed prior to shooting the video for the song.

She explained: "Nothing was choreographed. I didn't rehearse any of those things that you see in the video. Everything in that was just completely in the moment - pure, raw performance of how I feel.

"The intention was there to be no perfect illusions in the video about perfect illusions."
