Rumors started in June across a few social media outlets that Jo Calderone, who is on this months Vogue Hommes Japan cover, was Lady Gaga’s male alter ego, and we must admit we were a little confused.
Now that the cover (styled by Nicola Formichetti) and interview inside has finally circulated we understand why that comparison was suggested.
Take look at the rather convincing shots of Jo Calderone above as well as the interview below by Jo-ann Furniss.
JO CALDERONE – INTERVIEW
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DO / YOUR OCCUPATION?
Mechanic for my dad’s business. This is the first time I’ve had my picture taken.
WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOU WANTED TO TO THIS?
Well, I always helped my dad at work, since I was a kid. I thought it would be fun to have my picture taken.
WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS?
I’d love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own â€˜muscleâ€™ cars.
Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.
WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO LADY GAGA?
I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She’s fuckin beautiful, and funny, and interesting. I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said,”Don’t be baby, you were “born this way.” I took her out after. The rest is private.
