Lady Gaga and her fiance want to make love and art, not war.
Gaga explains the passionate moment that came before the photo was taken by Kinney.
"We made love on this canvas on a Sunday in Chicago,” the singer tells the mag. “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."
The “Born This Way” singer also shares that art has been a huge part of her relationship with Kinney and making love on a canvas was a long time coming.
“Since we first met, Taylor's been painting and drawing all over me,” Gaga, 29, shares. “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. And though he made many murals on my body in the wee, small hours of our stoked, gypsy mornings with our friends, for whatever reason we never got around to it."
Kinney wasn’t the only one close to the fashion icon’s heart that made one of the 16 covers of the magazine that she guest edited.
Her beloved dog, Asia Kinney, also landed her first solo magazine cover. She previously graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with her ultra-famous mom, and kept up with the big dogs in her Coach campaign, but now Hollywood bark-let’s portrait -- shot by Terry Richardson -- appears on V.
Asia also gets decked out in custom pieces designed by Philip Treacy that can be seen in the magazine when it hits newsstands on Jan. 14.
Gaga interviewed Treacy about the process of making the duds for Asia.
“I love dogs -- they are my favorite,” the hat designer to the royals reveals. “When I design, I design with love. Love for the person and love for my craft. When I met Asia backstage with you, I loved her--what a face, so sweet and cuddly.”
“There is no difference in a hat for a dog or a person,” he adds. “Dogs are elegant and chic too.”
It is no surprise Asia is in the public eye. The pampered pooch has a large following on her social media accounts, where she showcases her life of luxury to her 204,000 Instagram followers.
