Lady Gaga Seems to Be Taking Her Jo Calderone Alter Ego Pretty Seriously

By
"Too cool to care." "Makeup is for losers, hair dye is for winners."

The Internet seems to pretty much agree that Lady Gaga IS this hot new face Jo Calderone, who appears on the September cover of Japanese Men's Vogue, shot by Gaga's favorite photographer Nick Knight. Further evidence that Gaga is Calderone exists on Twitter, where this character has a feed that began on June 29, the day the shots began leaking. You'll notice the feed is also clogged with interactions with Gaga's favorite arm barnacle, Perez Hilton.

Images from the shoot leaked on Knight's site over the summer, and Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, posted the two covers to his blog today, along with an excerpt from the interview Lady Jo Calderone Gaga gave the magazine. Not only is she (allegedly) playing a man, she's playing an Italian man.


WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Palermo, Sicily

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DO / YOUR
OCCUPATION?
Mechanic for my dad's business. This is the first time I've had my picture taken.

WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOU WANTED TO TO THIS?
Well, I always helped my dad at work, since I was a kid. I thought it would be fun to have my picture taken.

WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS?
I'd love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own ‘muscle’ cars. Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.

WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO LADY GAGA?
I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She's fuckin beautiful, and funny, and interesting. I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said, "Don't be baby, you were "born this way." I took her out after. The rest is private ;)

Only Lady Gaga would create an alter ego that she could have implied sex with. LOVE.
