Kinney was first introduced to Mother Monster
on set of her music video "You and I" in 2011. "I show up and they're like, 'Oh this is the idea. This is the idea.' and I go, 'OK, just let me do my thing," he recalled. "And I remember I went up, and we're rolling, and I kissed her and she didn't expect it. They cut, and she slapped me."
