Lady Gaga confirms her engagement to Christian Carino in moving speech
Lady Gaga confirmed that she is engaged to her boyfriend Christian Carino while giving an emotional speech at Monday night's 25th Elle Women in Hollywood celebration
Lady Gaga has confirmed her engagement to her beau Christian Carino. The 'Poker Face' singer finally confirmed that she was engaged to be married to her boyfriend Christian at the 25th annual Elle Women in Hollywood celebration on Monday night.
As reported by E!News, the singer and actor thanked her "fiance Christian" while giving a very emotional speech at the ceremony after she was honored. It is not clear as to how long the couple has been engaged since the pair sparked engagement rumors in February 2017 after they were spotted sharing kisses while they were on the Super Bowl football field before Gaga's half-time performance.
In her heartfelt speech, Gaga shared, "Never within my wildest dreams would I think my life would become what it has." She also explained her decision to sport a neutral Mark Jacobs pantsuit to the event and explained, "I felt like me. I felt the truth of who I am up in my gut."
"As a sexual assault survivor by someone in the entertainment industry, as a woman who is still not brave enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who from a very young age was conditioned to do what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the suit," she continued.
Lady Gaga was previously engaged to 'Chicago Fire' actor Taylor Kinney who had originally proposed to her on Valentine's Day in 2015. However, the former couple chose to split up a year later in July 2016. Only six months after their split, Lady Gaga was seen getting affectionate with Carino and the pair has chosen to keep their relationship on a low profile ever since.

According to Page Six, Lady Gaga shared, "When I went backstage, Christian was by the stairs making sure I was OK. The best part about being in love with someone is having them there to catch you if you fall."
Her outfit offered a striking contrast to the glamorous gowns she's worn while promoting 'A Star is Born', a role that has generated major Oscar buzz. The pop star said her preparation for the event, formed to honor powerful women in entertainment, began the same way.
She continued: "I asked myself 'What does it really mean to be a woman in Hollywood?' We are not just objects to entertain the world. We are not members of a giant beauty pageant meant to be pit against one another for the pleasure of the public. We women in Hollywood, we are voices... We have the power to speak and be heard and fight back when we are silenced."
