At least Lady Gaga doesn't have to worry about her rumored new boyfriend seeing her without makeup. Radar Online says Lady G is dating onetime "Vampire Diaries" actor Taylor Kinney, who steamily co-starred, sans shirt and sometimes pants, in her "You and I" video.
Word is, the two hit it off while filming the mermaid-inclusive, Bride of Frankenstein-referencing opus in July.
"It was just casual at first," says a snitch, "but things are getting pretty hot and heavy."
Last weekend, Gaga, 25, and Kinney, 30, were reportedly seen sucking face at a beach-adjacent bar in Mission Viejo, Calif., after downing a few shots of whiskey.
"I couldn’t tell it was her at first," relays a spy. "It just looked like some hot couple making out, but then I realized it was Lady Gaga!"
The chart-topper came up for air long enough to reward her loyal little barfly Monsters with some attention.
"Everyone went nuts!" continues the snitch. "She was so sweet, too -- she even signed some autographs."
Radar says the pair followed up the public lip-lock session with a Labor Day stroll, which prompted one amateur body-language reader to proclaim, "They are obviously totally into each other!"
Gaga has been on-again, off-again with bartender-musician Luc Carl for the last couple of years. But this ostensible new relationship might explain her sudden, out-of-left-field interest in surfing. Turns out, it's one of Kinney's favorite activities.
