Taylor Kinney says Lady Gaga inspires him at People's Choice Awards

Actor Taylor Kinney might be Lady Gaga's biggest Little Monster, as her fans are affectionately called.

Kinney won the award for Favorite Dramatic TV Actor for his role in "Chicago Fire" at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, and he gave a huge shoutout to his pop star fiancee. The two got engaged in February.

"My fiancee couldn't be here tonight but she says hello, wishes she could," Kinney said as he accepted the award. "I love you babe, thank you for having my back and supporting me. You inspire me every day. And to the people: I implore you, pursue your passions, chase your dreams."

Though Lady Gaga couldn't be at the People's Choice Awards for her man, the other leading lady in Kinney's life was: his mom.

He gave a shoutout to his mother, who was in the audience and waved for the cameras. She's undoubtedly the best substitute for Mother Monster.
