[Updated 21 July 2016] Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are still perfect for each other, thank you very much because they're only taking a break from their relationship.

"Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break," Gaga wrote on Instagram. "We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other."

Gaga doesn't mention their engagement, but we'll take her statement with some relief. Stay strong, Mother Monster!

Lady Gaga and her fiancé Taylor Kinney have called off their engagement. The couple, who got engaged on Valentine's Day in 2015 after dating since 2011, have decided to part ways due to their busy schedules.

"Their work kept them apart a lot," an insider told People. "Chicago Fire keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere."

"They had a good life and a lot in common, but were ultimately too different," another source told Us Weekly. "I know he was always in Chicago and she went there all the time, but really had to be in LA or on tour and it was hard for them to make their schedules work. Distance was definitely a big, big issue."

Remember when Gaga and Taylor were perfect for each other?

"He's a hidden weirdo," the singer once described her beau to Ellen DeGeneres. "He's extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other's weirdness."

We're not crying, you are!
