Lady Gaga VMA Performance: Jo Calderone Rants, Sings "You and I"!

by at . Comments

Little Monsters already know Jo Calderone is Lady Gaga's alter ego. What they didn't know before last night's Video Music Awards is that the two were an item!

"My name is Jo Calderone," the 25-year-old said, showing up in drag as part of her wild, extended pre-performance monologue. "Lady Gaga? She left me!"

Fully committed to the character for several minutes, smoking a cigarette as he/she addressing the crowd, "Jo" grew more and more animated ...

"[Lady Gaga] is f**king crazy!" he/she said. "For example, she gets out of the bed, puts on the heels. She comes out of the bathroom dripping wet and she's still got the heels on ... And what's with the hair?

"At first it was sexy, but now I'm just confused. I think it's really f**king great that she's such a star and all ... but how am I supposed to shine?"

There you go. Finally, Lady Gaga sat down and belted out a soulful rendition of "You and I." Brian May from Queen came on stage and joined her.

What did you think of her performance? Was it great to see Jo Calderone in person like that, or did the gag get old? Certainly original, right?

The fact that Lady Gaga loves Queen just makes her even more loveable! She is truly amazing! I could go into a long rant about idiotic American "stars" such as Britney, Bieber, Kanye, Adele etc who think that our solar system revolves around them. But Brian, you know who yours and Queen's true fans are. You are, and always will be, brilliant- you are a legend and will continue to live on when these "stars" have fallen off the radar. To my darling Freddie, Brian, Roger and Deacon John ;) you truly will forever be the Champions of the world.

Absolutely loved every single bit of it. I was really surprised how well it was executed, pure artistry. I loved Britney's face haha! I hope we get to see Jo again in the near future :)

I think the performance was perfect. I am so impressed that she kept character throughout the entire show, and those of you bashing it, I would LOVE to see you do a better job than Gaga. Her vocals were flawless, and I love how she made her voice and choreography more masculine to fit Jo Calderone. She really does know what she's doing and it was nice to see a more toned down performance- it was the exact opposit of what most expected, which made it very enjoyable. Also, Jo is just an extension of her eccentric personality, which I fully accept. What you see is what you get with Gaga. All of her costumes and performances add together to create who she truly is, and I respect her for that deeply.

I absolutely loved Lady Gaga as Jo Calderone! I've watched her perfomance and the VMAs over and over again thanks to DVR. I also think she makes a pretty attractive man! "Yoü and I" is one of my favorite songs on the new album (even before the album's release) and I'm happy that she made a piano ballad of hers a single. The video is her most bizarre one yet! She may be an "attention whore," but I admire that she's fearless and doesn't give a rat's ass what her haters say. And as far as taking her character at the VMAs too far and "ruining" them, if it wasn't for her, that sh** would have been boring as f***. If anyone ruined it, it was Russell Brand going on and on about Amy Crackhouse, and he & Tony Bennett actually comparing her to Ella Fitzgerald & Billie Holiday. Talk about disgrace!

I agree totally with the porn problem with today's celebrities. It reflects how down our society has got, very sad.
