Ode to the New Year's Eve kiss! While Giuliana and Bill Rancic puckered up for Nivea and countless revelers kissed to ring in the new year, an unlikely duo — Lady Gaga and Mayor Michael Bloomberg — gave each other a peck on the lips for 2012!
Technically, what could be more fitting than the NYC mayor and the woman who's had a monster of a year performing for her little monsters?
As the two high-profile New Yorkers brought in the new year in Times Square, the Grammy winner wore a sequined mask and the mayor donned a sweater embroidered with the American flag. As pointed out by the Huffington Post, the mayor officially chose Lady Gaga as his ball drop partner a few days prior to the event.
Even though she was aware of the honor ahead of time, it sounds like nothing can truly compare to being in the midst of the moment, and by that we mean the exciting madness that is Times Square on New Year's Eve.
A speechless Lady Gaga tweeted, "I can't even quite describe what tonight felt like. Sort of poetic madness. A dream come true. Moments recalling a leather taking the subway."
