Like the sun rising in the east, a tax audit or getting side-swiped by Amanda Bynes, some things in life are simply inevitable. That includes Lady Gaga publicly exposing plenty of skin. This time, however, she has company in her flesh-baring hijinks.
In a photo posted on her Little Monsters website, a seemingly butt-nekkid Lady G enjoys a passionate clinch with actor boyfriend Taylor Kinney as they cozy up in an undulating swimming pool.
The pic, simply titled "T and Me," represents a public step forward for the low-key couple, who began dating this time last year after meeting on the set of her "You and I" music video.
It's a milestone they apparently celebrated earlier this week with a decadent dinner in Chicago. The New York Post says Gaga, 26, and Kinney, 31, marked the occasion by chowing down on oysters and caviar with four pals at an Italian eatery.
Word is, Lady G has made several trips to the Windy City to visit her "Vampire Diaries" squeeze, who is shooting the forthcoming NBC drama "Chicago Fire." She also joined him in Los Angeles late last month for his brother's wedding.
Unfortunately, together-time might be tough to come by in the coming months: The singer kicks off the European leg of her tour next week.
