Lady Gaga and her fiance actor Taylor Kinney appear naked on the latest cover of V Magazine.
The couple, in a mirror selfie taken by Taylor Kinney are only covered in paint after love making on canvas.
According to Lady Gaga, who is a guest editor for the magazine, the crazy idea came from Kinney.
“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.”
“I asked [Taylor] to collaborate with me on a project to raise money and awareness about mental illness, [and] he immediately brought my attention back to this idea.”
“We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago,” she says.
“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.”
The painting that resulted is abstract and fairly Jackson Pollock in nature, with a base of purple and green and splashes of yellow and orangey-red.
“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.”
Lady Gaga’s $50 V issue has16 unique covers and all sales will go to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way foundation to help fund “cutting-edge, social-emotional intelligence research.”
