Jo Calderone Is Back

You may remember seeing someone known as Gaga posing as her male alter ego Jo Calderone for Japan's Vogue Hommes cover and editorial Too Cool To Care, styled by Nicola Formichetti and shot by Nick Knight. No? Well here is some imagery below to refresh your memory:

And now Jo returns, this time on the cover of Gaga's latest single release You & I, and if I look at this image below for too long, I just can't help but think to myself "You talkin' to me, you talkin' to me?" in a really bad Italian-American accent. Yes I have a vivid imagination. Anyhoo, I'm sure some folk will do the usual gushing-over-gaga thing on how she's teaching us about the fluid nature of gender roles and the ultimate futility of valuing an individual as either a male or female. Fair enough. But "Jo" just looks like the type you would steer clear of in a bar if he offered to buy you a drink. And did I miss the bit that said it's "cool" for international music and style icons (Gaga, not Jo) to promote smoking to her millions of younger monsters? Tut and tut. Paws down for that one.
