Terry Richardson Has Lady Gaga Pose as Jo Calderone (PHOTOS)

Infamous photographer Terry Richardson didn’t pass up the chance to have his friend Lady Gaga come in for a photo shoot as her alter ego Joe Calderone. 

Though he only posted a few on his website, it was clear that Gaga was still in character during the shoot. The outlandish pop star stepped out at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night dressed as a male. 

The singer opened the show with “You & I,” and throughout the song, she smoked a cigarette, threw in several curse words and sprayed a bottle of beer onto the crowd. After playing the piano, she broke out into a dance number with her backup dancers.

Check out her performance below and let us know what you think of Gaga’s male alter ego.
