Gaga's scorching alter-ego

Sun 29 Aug 2010 In: Hall of Fame View at Wayback View at NDHA

Everyone's raving about Lady Gaga's sexy turn as male model alter ego Jo Calderone, which graces the cover of Japanese Vogue:   In the accompanying interview, 'Calderone' claims to be a mechanic who is a friend of the pop icon: 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 do 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 with Lady Gaga? I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She’s f---ing 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 ;) Jo Calderone - 29th August 2010
