I love Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow’ but after hearing Kelly Clarkson’s version, I can’t decide now which one is better!


During Kelly’s Meaning of Life tour stop down in Green Bay, Wisconsin, not only did Kelly gush about Gaga but she also treated the audience to a solo performance of ‘Shallow.’  Kelly says, “This chick is amazing. We’re really different, but at the same time, we’re really similar in the fact that she just loves music, and that’s why she’s doing what she’s doing.”



Kelly continues, “Honestly, I remember her first single, we actually did a show together, combined for some event… she wrote me handwritten letter saying, ‘Thank you so much. It was an honour to open for you.’ She was the nicest human being ever.  It’s cool to know someone that talented is also really nice. I’ve been rooting for her for a while.”


Right before Kelly belted out the hit record, she tells the audience how Gaga and Bradley did such an ‘awesome job’ on the song and playfully jokes, “Obviously I don’t have Bradley Cooper here!  I hope I don’t suck, and if I do, I hope she doesn’t see it.”

During GRAMMY night while Gaga was backstage, she told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s [Shallow] a really special song.  I know that might sound like not a good thing to say coming from the person that co-wrote it, but we had a special moment in that room together, me and [co-writers] Mark Ronson and Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. It was two guitars, a bass, a piano, a typewriter and us talking and singing back and forth and having a conversation.”

Gaga explained, “The the song is ultimately a “conversation between a man and a woman and I think that represents a lot.  All [of us]  in this world, we need to keep talkin’ and we need to keep talkin’ about the things that are important; not [about] the shallow s**t, but the deep [things].”
