Jenna Ushkowitz's boyfriend to thank for Lady Gaga video spot

Jenna Ushkowitz has her actor boyfriend Michael Trevino to thank for helping her land a guest spot in Lady Gaga's recent music video.

The 26 year old, who plays Tina Cohen-Chang on Glee, was hanging out with her partner Michael Trevino on the set of his TV show The Vampire Diaries when she bumped into the Bad Romance hitmaker, who was visiting her then-boyfriend actor Taylor Kinney.


The two couples went out on a double date in Atlanta, Georgia - and Michael Trevino suggested Lady Gaga should use his girl in a music video.


Opening up about her friendship with the pop star during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday (17May12), Jenna Ushkowitz said, "She comes over to Michael's apartment, she had her hair down. She had like a nice weave in. And she used my comb too! And I'm like, 'I'm never using this again!' She is awesome. She is super cool. We ended up hanging out. We went to a (Atlanta) Braves (baseball) game together."


And Lady Gaga certainly took a liking to Ushkowitz - she later invited the actress to appear in her Marry the Night video, as her best pal Bo.


The actress continues, "Two weeks later, she got in touch with my agent. She was like, 'Can you do me this favour and can you come (and) be in my music video?' I was like, 'I think so.'


Unfortunately Jenna Ushkowitz and Lady Gaga won't be double dating again any time soon - although the actress is still romancing Michael Trevino, her boyfriend of a year, the pop star ended her 10-month romance with Taylor Kinney last month (Apr12).
