We hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve this past weekend, and we know Mayor Bloomberg sure did! Lady GaGa rang in the 2012 in Times Square and shared a kiss with New York City’s mayor Bloomberg. We were all shocked, especially considering GaGa has gone public with her relationship with Vampire Diaries Taylor Kinney, but we’re sure the kiss was just a standard New Year’s stunt and nothing more.

GaGa is taking things slow with Kinney, but we can tell she really likes him. The two met on the set of her music video for “You and I”. Kinney was cast as GaGa’s love interest and it was all uphill from there! It must be hard committing to a new guy when you’re on the road 24/7 but we’re sure the two will find a way!

What did you guys think of her NYE performance?
