Lady GaGa and Taylor Kinney got down and dirty in a selfie that will be featured in V magazine’s Spring Preview issue. The couple posed naked after having sex in a paint canvas in the image. She wrapped her arms and legs around her fiance from behind, while the “Chicago Fire” actor took the mirror selfie.
The 29-year-old singer revealed the sexy pose was Kinney’s idea. “Since we first met, Taylor’s been drawing and painting all over me,” she writes in her editor’s letter. “Years ago, when we were secretly living in San Diego and crashing on the floor of a beach shack, we never wore shoes. He told me he wanted to make love to me on a canvas.”
They never did it then, but Kinney suggested they give it a go when she asked him to collaborate with her on a project to raise money and awareness about mental illness. “He immediately brought my attention back to this idea,” she shares.
“We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago,” GaGa recalls the time the selfie was taken. “We made love amidst chaos. We talked about shootings. We made love amidst terrorism. And we talked about how people’s hearts are also suffering all over the world as they watch and witness a swell of violence. We made love amidst violence.”
She explains, “During tumultuous times, we hope everyone in the world will see this and be reminded to love each other wildly, generously, totally, colorfully, without fear and with compassionate hearts. We made a galaxy of endless colors with only brief, black holes of emptiness that are then filled by each other.”
GaGa serves as a guest editor of V magazine’s Spring Preview Issue (V99) which features 16 covers. All proceeds from the said issue will go towards GaGa’s Born This Way foundation which aims to fund cutting-edge, social-emotional intelligence research.
