Lady Gaga is giving her fans quite the intimate look into her relationship with Taylor Kinney.
The singer shared a steamy photo of herself skinny dipping with her actor-boyfriend on her social media site LittleMonsters.com over the weekend. In the picture, the "Vampire Diaries" star is holding Gaga in his arms as they kiss passionately. She captioned the photo: "T and Me."
The 26-year-old pop star actually met Kinney, 31, under similar circumstances. He was hired to appear in her music video for "You and I" last year. In the vid, one of the many characters she plays is a mermaid and he portrays her love interest. The two shared a sexy love scene in a bath tub.
Gaga has been using LittleMonsters.com to break a lot of news lately. On Friday, she posted a photo of her 10th tattoo, the word "ARTPOP" on her arm, and revealed to her fans that it is the name of her upcoming third album, which will be released next year.
At the end of 2011, Gaga noted that she already had a name picked out for the album — rumored to be heavy on dance/club songs — which she has been working on during her Born This Way Ball Tour. "I've started writing it and I have the name for it, and all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place," she told MTV. "I'm excited to put it out, but it's not done yet. So I'll put it out when it's done."
The pop star gave her New York City fans a tease of a track when she blasted it on her car stereo while driving around the city last month. Fans flocked to her car to hear the new tune — a dancey song — and a clip of the YouTube. Talking about the inspiration behind the album, Gaga has said, "Let's just say I feel, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity," she said. "And I feel that on the next album there's a lack of maturity — it's a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility."
While we wait to see what Gaga comes up with for her next masterpiece, one thing is certain: She certainly has access to a hunky guy — with experience — for her next video.
