Pop diva Lady Gaga announced to the world Monday that she is getting married - to an actor she met making a video, in which she wore her mother’s wedding dress. The 28-year-old superstar, who has become as known for her extravagant outfits as for her music, revealed the engagement by showing a simple, heart-shaped ring that fiance Taylor Kinney gave her. ‘He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!’ Gaga said in a caption to the picture she shared with her 5.5 million followers on Instagram. Gaga met Kinney in 2011 when filming the video for ‘You & I’ in the open fields of Nebraska. Despite the romantic title, the video was full of disturbing imagery including simulated torture of Gaga. In a foreshadowing of the relationship to come, Gaga revealed that she wore her mother’s wedding dress for the video.
