Lady Gaga As Jo Calderone: 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Time to do a double take! Lady Gaga pulled the rug out from under everyone, yet again, by dressing as her alter ego ‘Jo Calderone’ at the 28th Annual MTV VMAs which aired LIVE Sunday, August 28th from Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Gaga dressed as ‘Jo’ once before in a photo shoot for Vogue Hommes Japan but fans didn’t even recognize her at the time. She made sure to perform at the VMAs with one of her idols, Brian May who is a member of Queen and helped co write the song, ‘Radio Gaga’ that inspired her stage name.

Not everything should be worshiped all the time, but Lady Gaga is without a doubt, a genius. While Katy Perry and others are desperately trying to catch up, Gaga is literally playin’ it cool with a male persona who claims to have ‘dated Gaga’. And she made sure to spend the week prior to the MTV VMAs dressing relatively normal and pleasant. Some people may have expected another egg debacle, but this woman knows better. Well played Lady!

Lady Gaga is up for ‘Best Female Video’, and ‘Best Video With A Message’.
