Trolling for dirt on Luc Carl? Don't expect much from his work.

The New York City bartender and ex-boyfriend of Lady Gaga, who is reportedly back together with the singer now, works at St. Jerome's in the East Village.

Recently Lady Gaga has been hanging around the bar again, fueling speculation that she and Luc Carl are back together. If so, they are keeping it very quiet.

His co-workers protect his cover, too. Customers have spotted a sign over by the telephone that instructs employees to tell callers, "I don't know Luc."

Luc Carl's pseudo-celebrity status hasn't stopped Gaga from stopping by. She visited him on Saturday night, one day after she rocked the Today show.

Sounds like Luc Carl is Gaga for this lovely Lady again.

Sipping red wine at the bar with her bodyguard, "She was playing it really cool," a witness says. "You would not have even known they were together."

According to Gagapedia, Luc Carl is a club promoter, musician, DJ, author, bartender, personal trainer, and semi-pro bowler from Omaha, Nebraska.

It's unclear when they got back together, but he currently lives in New York City, and works at two bars, St. Jerome's, and Welcome To The Johnsons.

He dated Lady Gaga for three years, and is the source of inspiration for many songs she wrote during that time - including her newest, "You and I."

Here's hoping it works out!

A little rain couldn't slow down Lady Gaga's reign.

The singer played a full half-hour set on the Today show, belting out her newest song “You and I” (reportedly written for boyfriend Luc Carl) and some of her other hits.

Originally wearing oversized sparkle-encrusted bug goggles, she finished the routine without them. She did her traditional heel-banging on the piano, not to worry.

Here's the powerhouse performer in action ...

A Lady Gaga live performance is a uniquely awesome experience.

As always, she left it all on the stage. Whether you love her music or you don't, there's no disputing that unlike many artists, she gives her all in concert day in and day out. Click to enlarge lots more Lady Gaga pictures from her performance ...

Is Lady Gaga giving a bad romance a second chance?

Maybe it'll be better this time around. The singer and her former boyfriend, musician / bartender Luc Carl, have recently reconciled, according to reports.

Luc Carl and Lady Gaga split a few years ago – but the pair started dating again a few weeks ago. Last month, the couple went public for the first time.

They attended a New York Mets game together ... the one ending with Gaga flipping the bird at photographers and Jerry Seinfeld saying he hates her.

In any event, Luc is happy to be back in the LoveGame.

LUC IN LOVE: Lady Gaga's ex-boyfriend, Luc Carl, is back in her life - and clearly a major influence on the musician both personally and professionally.

"Gaga's first album is entirely about their relationship and her latest song, 'You and I,' is about how they got back together," adds a source close to her.

"They've been in love for a while."

If the song's lyrics mean anything, Gaga keeps her new man close: "It's been a long time but I'm back in town/But this time I'm not leaving without you."

Gaga's rep had no comment on the relationship as she performed to a packed Rockefeller Center Friday morning for a full half-hour of the Today show.

No comment on whether Jo Calderone is really Lady G, either.

Lady Gaga is flaking out at Madison Square Garden this. Only literally.

The singer is turning the world's most famous arena into the "Haus of Gaga" with three sold-out shows to ensure she takes the Big Apple to the "Monster Ball."

For the Manhattan native, the concerts are a homecoming of sorts.

While she always puts it all out there in concert, the alter ego of Jo Calderone (or vice versa) may have found another gear for her hometown fans...

Christmas in July? Lady Gaga becomes the human snowflake.

We don't know about you, but this particular getup ranks among our favorite Lady Gaga pictures. Although we're also partial to the lobster on her head.

More and more people are going gaga for Lady Gaga ... online.

Buoyed by outrageous costumes and smash hits like "Bad Romance," "Just Dance," "Poker Face" and "Alejandro," she's become one of the biggest names in music.

And the biggest name on Facebook among all living beings.

Friday, she surpassed 10 million fans on the social networking site, eclipsing President Barack Obama for the top spot (Britney Spears has the most Twitter fans).

Shellfish Individual

The possible alter ego of Jo Calderone is only #1 among the living, of course. According to USA Today, five entities have more Facebook fans than Lady Gaga:

  1. Michael Jackson
  2. Texas Hold 'em Poker
  3. Family Guy
  4. Mafia Wars
  5. Facebook

The rumored hermaphrodite told Rolling Stone that it's her fans who motivate her: "When I wake up in the morning, I feel like any other insecure 24-year-old."

"Then I say, 'You're Lady Gaga, get up and walk the walk today.'"

Amen. Follow this link to become a fan of THG on Facebook!

As we reported yesterday, a set of photos taken by Nick Knight for Japan's "Vogue Hommes" feature a (presumably) male model by the name of Jo Calderone.

A significant number of sources claim, however, that "Jo" is actually Lady Gaga's alter ego, and that the "Poker Face" singer went incognito for the photo shoot.

Seriously, people think this guy is her.

The only definitive connection between the two is stylist Nicola Formicetti, but some Gaga fans remain adamant. "I'd put money on it," said one observer.

Think it's her? Check him/her out ...

Is this Vogue Japan model actually Lady Gaga in drag?

"The nose gives it away to start. Then the eyes, then the girly mouth." The apparent lack of Adam's apple would be another clue, THG readers have opined.

Other evidence and theories circulating online:

  • The mystery model's first name, Jo, corresponds with Gaga's middle name, Joanne (her birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).
  • ABC News points out that "Jo Calderone" is an anagram of "Alejandro" ... with an extra c and o. Brilliant detective work there, ABC News.
  • Last year's Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors not only failed to rankle the star - she seemed to embrace, even feed into that bit of gossip.

What do you think? Is it her? Vote below ...

Rumors are circulating this morning that a seemingly male model appearing in Vogue Hommes Japan may be none other than pop star Lady Gaga in disguise.

You be the judge!

Stylist Nicola Formichetti posted the picture below (left) and others like it to his website with no explanation as to who the model is, or even his or her gender.

Some fans insist this is the latest outrageous look from the singer known for them ... this is not as weird as the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor, but close.

It does look kinda like her ... but is it? Inspect and vote below!

Is this Lady Gaga?

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her." - Jerry Seinfeld on Lady Gaga

While the comedian was (partially) joking in an interview with New York's WFAN radio, he's definitely not gaga over the singer's recent baseball game antics.

"I can’t believe that they put her in my box, which I paid for," Seinfeld said, referring to Lady Gaga's bizarre, profanity-laced meltdown June 10 at Citi Field.

Gaga showed up during the fifth inning of the day game between the Mets and Padres and was furious that her front-row seats were close to photographers.

Instead of sitting, she vanished into a lower-deck concourse, only to reappear in a little bit later in the empty luxury box owned by Seinfeld, a big Mets fan.

"You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?" he said. "How old is the finger? How’d it even get to be the finger?"

Oh, and what is the DEAL with wearing a bra as a top?

"She is talented," said Seinfeld. "I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff. I don't know what these young people think or how they promote their careers."

He then expounded on her antics: "I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure - you could die of exposure."

Well, there's one person who won't be buying Gaga's new album.

When the WFAN host pointed out to Seinfeld that Gaga was at the rival Yankees' game on Friday, Seinfeld said, "Oh please, wake me when it's over."

"So you've had enough of her?" Steve Somers asked Jerry.

"Yeah," Seinfeld said. "I wish her the best," but then added in one final dig at Lady Gaga, "you take one 'A' off of that and you've got gag."

Not one of the best Seinfeld quotes ever ... but good.

Okay, we just made up the second part of the headline above. But based on her recent Yankee game spectacle, do you have any doubt that this is true?

In the new issue of Rolling Stone, which features Lady Gaga in a machine gun bra on the cover, the "Poker Face" singer is looking forward to next year.

She's finished recording her newest album and is planning an early 2011 release, the name of which she will announce at midnight on New Year's Eve.

"I think I'm gonna get the album title tattooed on me and put out the photo," she said. "I've been working on it for months, and I feel very strongly that it's finished now. It came so quickly. Some artists take years; I don't. I write music every day."

Let's Go Yankees!

Lady Gaga displays her Yankees pride ... and breasts.

Gaga added that unlike her debut, The Fame, and 2009's follow-up, The Fame Monster, the new disc will have more political, even angry overtones, tackling hot-button issues close to the crooner's heart, such as gays in the military.

"Why are we still talking about 'Don't ask, don't tell?' exclaimed Gaga to the magazine. "It's like, what f*%king year is it? It just makes me crazy!"

"I have been for three years baking cakes. Now I'm going to bake a cake that has a bitter jelly," she adds. "The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before. Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be."

We don't really follow, but we're looking forward to another year of outrageous hit songs, videos, quotes and Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors.

The machine gun bra is not exactly a look one sees every day. Then again, the woman donning the heavy artillery underwear is not your everyday girl next door.

This is probably the only way to outdo last year's Lady Gaga nude Rolling Stone cover - Gaga nude except for semi-automatic weapons protruding from her chest.

Those are some serious guns ...

STRAPPED: Lady Gaga heats up Rolling Stone in more ways than one.

The magazine may have jumped the shark years ago, but it's sure to get people talking with this issue. Although we personally prefer her spilling out of a Yankees jersey.

Where does this latest attempt to shock and awe us rank with Gaga's best?

Should she tone it down, or should she have pushed the envelope further? Would you have liked to see her totally nude, with bigger guns, or covered up for a change?
