Lady Gaga says boyfriend Taylor Kinney is a “secret weirdo”.
The pop star has been dating the Chicago Fire actor since they met on the set of her 2011 music video for You & I.
And while the eccentric singer admits they may seem like opposites, she says they actually compliment each other quite well.
“He’s a hidden weirdo,” Gaga told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview scheduled to air on Monday.
“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,” she recalled.
The star remembers the first time the pair met. She was wearing a ridiculous costume and is still stumped as to why Taylor was attracted to her.
“[We were filming] 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,” she laughed.
Gaga was stunned when their chemistry sparked on set. Taylor surprised her with a kiss and that was the start of their romance. Two years later, she says they’re “best friends”.
“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.”
