Lady Gaga is terrifyingly amazing as The Countess on American Horror Story: Hotel, but as her soon-to-be husband Taylor Kinney explained on last night’s Watch What Happens: Live, this isn’t the superstar’s first time using her whipping hand to slay overeager men.

The endlessly charming couple first met on the set of Gaga’s farm-girl-meets-robot “Yoü and I” music video, a song that she famously wrote about an old lover, and though the two eventually hit it off, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight despite Gaga’s gorgeous teal-colored locks and Kinney’s shirtless, rock-hard bod.

“I remember I went up, and we’re rolling, and I kissed her and she didn’t expect it," the Chicago Fire star explained. "They cut, and she slapped me. And it was just awkward. And the next take, I just did it again and then she didn’t slap me,” Kinney said adorably. “We had a good time. I think there was chemistry. It was a late shoot. We were shooting until 4 or 5 in the morning, something like that. And we exchanged information. A few weeks went by and we kept in touch and then that’s that.”

And while the talented stars are madly in love, signs of an exact wedding details remain unknown. “We’re so busy. We’ve been engaged for less than a year. So, we’ve been talking about whether it’s New York, Los Angeles, destination place, so we don’t have an exact date yet,” Kinney added.

Whether the big day is sooner rather than later, we can’t wait to see what the actress and chart-topping songstress wears on her big day!
