Lady Gaga on Taylor Kinney: “We Complement Each Other’s Weirdness”

at 7:18 pm | By

Lady Gaga stripped herself of stage makeup and costume (save for triceratops booties) to sit down with Ellen DeGeneres and talk about love.

Gaga has been dating Chicago Fire‘s Taylor Kinney since they filmed the music video for “You & I” in July 2011, and sister is smitten-kitten with the Pennsylvania-born dreamboat.

“He’s a hidden weirdo,” Gaga explained.  “He is extremely strange actually and we complement each other’s weirdness. That’s actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It’s a Dr. Seuss quote that you find in someone else a compatible weirdness. And it was one of the first things he’s said to me.

“When we first met we were on the set of the ‘You and I’ video and I looked ridiculously crazy.  It’s this scene where he’s electrocuting me to bring me back to life to the woman that he once loved.  I’ve got these pins sticking out of my head and I’m wearing cork and I got no hair and I’m bald.  Why he found me attractive just completely behooves me.”

Stop that, Gaga. We’re all God’s children.

“We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn’t scripted for him to kiss me and I was sort of like was um, you know, was that real or was that fake? And he didn’t really say anything and that was fine by me and we kept filming.

“At the end of the day he’s my best friend and having your lover be your best friend. I mean, it’s the best thing ever. It’s the best thing I can say about it.”

Gaga’s interview airs Monday, November 25th.
