Underneath all of her superficial exterior–the wigs, the clothes, the Art Pop–Lady Gaga is just a girl like so many of the rest of us. And if you can’t tell from her songs, the chick is a romantic and wants what so many people in the world spend their lives looking for–L.O.V.E. Well, a few years ago she found it in Taylor Kinney when he starred alongside her in the video for “You And I” in 2011. And we’re all jealous because he’s a total cutie.
The 32-year-old actor, most famous for his role on NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” actually makes an adorable counterpoint to all of Gaga’s over-the-top flair and theatrics. He’s got a certain Marlboro Man charm and a handsome masculinity that while not as bold and in your face as Gaga’s aesthetic is nonetheless extremely pleasant to regard. In simple terms, he’s hot. Together, they’re fuego.
But even though his looks are more mainstream than Gaga’s public persona, he’s definitely not that vanilla, if you know what we mean. Gaga told Ellen last November, “”He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other’s weirdness.” Hmm, can we get some details on that?
Strange in the head maybe, but not strange to look at! Click through for 10 photos of Taylor Kinney that will make you jealous of Lady Gaga.
