The 29-year-old entertainer is the guest editor of the issue and her fiance snapped the mirror selfie of them stripped down.
“I could not complete the covers of this issue without relinquishing one to an important cause. Taylor and I talk all the time about our unique existence on this earth. How can we use our creativity to heal people? Since we first met, Taylor’s been painting and drawing all over me. 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,” Gaga said.
“We made love on this canvas on a Sunday in Chicago. 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,” she added.
Gaga also tweeted about the “adult finger painting” article that they contributed to the magazine. It’s about “how simple thoughts and gestures of love can make harmony out of chaos.”
