Lady Gaga interviewed as her alter ego 'Jo Calderone' at 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Lady Gaga stunned audiences and the press when she showed up at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday dressed as a character she called "Jo Calderone."

Gaga appeared in drag as her alter ego — a guy with a greaser hairstyle and a sort of New Jersey accent — throughout the telecast. Backstage after the show, reporters anticipated the arrival of the pop star, eager to get to the bottom of the bizarre stunt.

But Gaga, who deigned to answer questions from only four outlets she had pre-selected, was still in character. And, boy, does Calderone have a dirty mouth.

Asked if she was able to express herself more fully as Calderone than as Gaga, she/he replied: "I don't understand the question." (Apparently, Gaga is Method.)

Still, the reporter pressed on, trying to get the singer to open up about the weird act.

"Well, she's just really [angry] at me right now," Calderone explained, his speech peppered with quite a variety of colorful expletives. "And she said ... 'If you really love me, you'll go instead of me and you'll get in that spotlight.' So I did."

Oh, we totally get it now!

Calderone went on to describe himself as Jersey-bred Average Joe: "My family's from Palermo, Sicily. And I'm not a singer or a model or actor or anything, I'm just a guy."

And how much longer can the public expect to see Gaga as Calderone?

"I'm gonna be here about five more minutes."

And that was the best news we received all night.

Was this meant as performance art, or does she really have Dissociative Identity Disorder?

And everyone is laughing at something absolutely not funny, but since it's coming from a famous person from our society, it just might be. People are pathetic

It is obvious that something else is making her act that way. People don't just act like something is possessing them for no reason. Demons are true... As much as people hate to talk about religion, it is obvious that she is not promoting anything good.
