Just when you thought Lady Gaga’s days of constant nudity were behind her, she shows up naked on the cover of V Magazine with her equally naked fiance Taylor Kinney, Yahoo reports.
The picture, a selfie taken by Kinney, shows the couple seated and naked with Gaga big spooning Kinney as the pair sit on a canvas — their bodies sprinkled with brushes of paint.
The two claim that they had just finished painting each other and having sex on a canvas when the picture was taken, the realization of a fantasy the couple shared.
“Since we first met, Taylor’s been drawing and painting all over me,” Gaga wrote in her editor’s note for the magazine. “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.”
Gaga claims that she proposed doing a collaborative project together to bring awareness and raise funds for mental illness, and Kinney suggested the pair act on the idea they had years before.
“We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago,” she explained in her note. “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.”
Proceeds from every issue of this edition of V Magazine will go to Lady Gaga’s nonprofit the Born This Way foundation.
