Because, art? Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney posed naked after having sex on a paint canvas — and it's featured in V magazine's Spring Preview issue.

The bride-to-be, 29, wrapped her arms and legs around Kinney, 34, for the revealing cover photo. The Chicago Fire hunk took the mirror selfie, which showed off his beefy bod.

The sexy pose was all Kinney's idea, according to Lady Gaga. He suggested the pair strip down when the American Horror Story actress said she wanted to raise awareness for mental illness.

Kinney previously brought up the idea that he "wanted to make love" on a canvas when the two lived in San Diego and crashed "on the floor of a beach shack," Lady Gaga revealed. The couple never did it then, so they decided to give it a go for Lady Gaga's mission. (Money raised from the Spring Preview issue will go to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.)

"We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago," the pop star wrote in her editor's letter, via Yahoo! Style. "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, "During tumultuous times, we hope everyone in the world will see this and be reminded to love each other wildly, generously, totally, colorfully, without fear and with compassionate hearts. We made a galaxy of endless colors with only brief, black holes of emptiness that are then filled by each other."

Lady Gaga and Kinney first met on set of the singer's 2011 music video "You & I." They got engaged after four years of dating last Valentine's Day.
