COSTA RICA EXTRA – Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have officially crossed an item off of their bucket list.
As guest editor of V magazine’s Pre-Spring Issue (V99) – which features a record number of 16 covers – the singer posed with those “who have kept me and protected me over the years, because they’ve wanted me to survive” – one being her fiancé, Kinney.
“I could not complete the covers of this issue without relinquishing one to an important cause,” Lady Gaga says of the shot, which shows the couple nude and smothered in paint in a mirror selfie taken by Kinney.
“Since we first met, Taylor’s been painting and drawing all over me. 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. And though he made many murals on my body in the wee, small hours of our stoked, gypsy mornings with our friends, for whatever reason we never got around to it.”
And because the issue – which also includes her icons Karl Lagerfeld, Hedi Slimane and Daphne Guinness – is all about “people coming together to express a passion for art and fashion, to really ‘go there’ to make a great statement and to change things,” Gaga and Kinney really, well, went “there” to benefit her Born This Way Foundation.
“We made love on this canvas on a Sunday in Chicago,” Gaga shares precisely about where the magical moment was captured. “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.”
After meeting on the set of Gaga’s music video “You and I” in 2011, the pair got engaged last year on Valentine’s Day when the Chicago Fire star presented her with a stunning heart-shaped ring.
All proceeds from the issue ($50), which is available for pre-order now and will be on newsstands Jan. 14, will go directly to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. For those who want to collect all 16 covers, a box of the special issues is available for purchase on V’s website for $300.
