Lady Gaga tried to win the unofficial Most Naked award at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (Aug. 25), spending the entire show in a shell bikini and matching thong. And Song of the Summer winners One Direction were big fans of her nearly-nude look.

The "Applause" singer got her cougar on as she posed with the boy band backstage, and some opportunistic photographer captured the amazing moment. Boys, do we need to employ a hand check?
