The blonde and her longtime love stripped down and got frisky… all in the name of art, obviously! The 29-year-old and her fianc├â┬⌐ had a romantic romp on top of a paint canvas, and decided to use their post-coital pic for the mag’s cover (above)!
As you can see in the pic, the famous flames are covered in paint and COMPLETELY nude in the SKINtillating selfie. And it turns out, this had been one of the actor’s fantasies for quite a while!
The singer wrote in the issue:
“Since we first met, Taylor’s been drawing and painting 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.”
She even admitted that using the provocative pic for the cover was actually her main man’s idea, sharing:
“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.”
But the photo is more than just an attention-grabbing, revealing mirror shot. The artist explained that the photo is actually meant to spread love during tough times.
GaGa wrote in the accompanying article:
“We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago. 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.”
“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.”
What an inspiring message to go along with an inspiring cause! If you want the musician’s full issue, you can buy it online on January 14. All the proceeds will go towards the Born This Way Foundation.
But for now, get your fill by checking out their steamy shots in the gallery (above)!
