It’s rare to see a red carpet at any type of music awards show without a totally over-the-top appearance from Lady Gaga — but the superstar was noticeably absent from this year’s American Music Awards on November 20, 2011. Now, Wetpaint Entertainment can exclusively reveal the reason why: Lady G was in Amish country!

“She was with her boyfriend, The Vampire Diaries' Taylor Kinney, and his family in Lancaster, Pennsylvania,” a Gaga insider exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “That’s where they’re from. She spent the weekend there.” And while reports have claimed Gaga, also known as Stefani Germonotta, and Kinney — who got close during the filming of her “You and I” video — are just casually dating, the insider begs to differ. “When was the last time Gaga said no to an opportunity to make headlines at an event?” the insider asks. “It’s what she lives for. The fact that she was happy to skip the American Music Awards for the chance to chill with Taylor and his family in Pennsylvania shows how much she’s into him. She really, really likes him.”

You heard it here first. Looks like Lady Gaga is, well, gaga for her new man!
