Photos of Lady Gaga and her new boyfriend Taylor Kinney surfaced for the first time yesterday and, by the looks of it, this is certainly not a Bad Romance.

Gaga and Kinney were photographed arm-in-arm on Dec. 11 in California. Gaga looked biker-chic in a long black leather jacket, dark sunglasses and bright red lipstick. Kinney complimented her dark colors with shades of black and gray himself. He sported a black baseball cap and sunglasses as well.

Onlookers who spotted them together in September said they looked just giddy. She and Taylor were flirting all night and kept smacking each other's butts, a source told Star magazine. She was grinning from ear to ear.

Kinney, an actor in the CW show The Vampire Diaries, is from Neffvilla, Pennsylvania. The 25-year-old pop sensation is reportedly looking to purchase a house in Kinney's home state. However, the realtor selling the $1.7 million home in the gated community in of Bent Creek in Manheim Township denied the rumors. 

It was a Sunday and I decided to go check on all my properties, Anne M. Lusk told E!. I usually dress really conservative, but on that day I was wearing my retro coat and my long blond hair was straight and down.

I don't even look like her, Lusk said, referring to Gaga who was seen in a café in Kinney's hometown. 

But will Kinney be there to celebrate New Year's Eve with his new lady? Gaga has been chosen by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his special guest at the city's annual New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square. The blonde bombshell will be on hand to push the button and drop the famous Waterford Crystal ball in the heart of the Big Apple at 11:59 pm Saturday.

Gaga took to Twitter to express her excitement. I'm so looking forward to ... dropping the Ball with Mayor Bloomberg! What an honor as a New Yorker!

The Born This Way singer will also be performing at two NYE celebrations - the 40th annual Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve and the Japanese program Kohaku Uta Gassen, reports MTV News.   

It is believed that Kinney and Gaga met on the set of her video for You and I, which the 30-year-old actor starred in.
