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?

I thought that her performance was amazing. I never honestly paid much attention to her before until last night, and I just... ugh. It was beautiful. I had no idea she could actually act and I loved that she kept the character throughout the entire show. And... SHE'S A HOT GUY! I mean, seriously, she makes a friggin hot guy... Ugh... and her voice... had no idea she could sing like that... I wasn't impressed by her before, but seriously, I think she may be one of my favorite artists now. She was beautiful and I'd love to meet her in person.

I think she looks better as a guy but she really just looks like KD Lang. She is a great performer, and funny. Got to give her credit.

That was just embarrassing. They had to bleep her filthy language so many times you could hardly follow what she was saying. O.K. Gaga we know you like to shock people but Annie Lenox did the same thing back in the 80s. You suck!

talented but too weird for me.
At a certain point it all becomes really childish and distracting.

I've never been a fan of gaga but, after last night, I can't help but be impressed. Her dry humor and intense attitude toward herself and the nature of all womenm in relationships really grabbed my attention. Without a doubt I wouldn't change a thing about last nights performance.
