In a rather unusual, but wonderfully only in New York moment, Mayor Bloomberg and Lady Gaga rang in the New Year with an unexpected smooch on the lips.
We speculated over what words were shared between the two that fateful night ("You have no idea how cool my daughter thinks I am right now"), but it looks like Bloomberg is a kiss and tell kind of guy.
When asked about the "magical kiss" at a press conference on Tuesday, the mayor said it was "fun" dancing with and kissing the pop superstar. He even said the usually bold Gaga was nervous before the big moment:
Bloomberg: Are you nervous?
Lady Gaga: A little bit.
Bloomberg: Why, you've performed in front of big crowds all the time?
Lady Gaga: Yeah, but this is my home.
No worries though for Bloomberg's longtime girlfriend, Diana Taylor! The mayor joked he "would be remiss if I didn't also add to that the best kiss of the night came after that, from Diana."
