Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney, star of The Vampire Diaries, have ended their relationship, reports Us Weekly.

According to a source, the pair are now "on a break" due to their hectic shedules, with Gaga set to embark on a 110-show tour while also recording her new album. "There's just no room for anything else," the source said of Gaga's workload. "Her work is all-consuming."

The insider also told Us that it wasn't likely Gaga and Kinney's relationship would last: "Taylor was all about himself, a typical actor, and didn't completely get Gaga."

The source added another possible reason for the split: "[Gaga] loved that she got this guy who everyone thought was hot! But it was never going to last."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
