With a massive eye-roll, she went on to clarify her stance saying, "First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet." She then added, "The movie, ‘A Star Is Born,’ is a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance. From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time. Look, I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel."

[I’ve seen] 60 per cent [of my episodes] maybe? It’s too much of me. [It’s the] same reason my husband can’t watch; it’s too much."

"So I'm reading [the note] but I'm hearing the champagne is broken, the bottle's everywhere, and I'm still looking at the note," she added.

I say to myself, I’m not going to do this movie…"
"Then they went to Sly, and Sly called me, have they ever talked to you about doing this movie? And I said, yes, I was thinking about doing it. This is a really brilliant idea, this movie.
