While Lady Gaga could take just about anyone she wanted to take to the Oscars as her date, the icon singer took her manager, Bobby Campbell. it was a question everyone was asking, who she would be going with. After her breakup with Christian Carino who she was engaged to until a week before the awards. Lady Gaga and her manager share a close friendship and it was only fitting that he accompany her. The two are great friends and since there was no other love interest for Gaga at the moment, it made sense to go with the man who has helped her get where she is today.
Bobby Campbell didn't feel like he was a back-up plan, according to reports from his friends. He was happy to go with Lady Gaga under any circumstance. Of course, it is likely that he would have understood if she had gone with her fiance but since she doesn't have one of those anymore, he had a great view of the awards and a wonderful person to share it with.
