8 Musicians With Bizarre (And Fascinating) Alter Egos

8. Lady Gaga Dresses Up Like James Dean

It's common knowledge that Lady Gaga has a penchant for the theatrical. When she's not lathering herself in meat products or chilling out in a giant egg, she's apparently honing her male alter ego, Jo Calderone, who appears to be a kind of James Dean-esque figure. Though Calderone was created in 2010 (and subsequently did several men's fashion shows) his most notable appearance was at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Throughout the entire night, Gaga portrayed her alter ego, not breaking character once. Calderone was seen hanging out with Kanye West and kissing various pop stars. On the creation of Calderone, she said:
"Beginning as an invention of my mind, Jo Calderone was created with Nick Knight as a mischievous experiment. After working together tirelessly and passionately for years, eating bovine hearts, throwing up on ourselves, giving birth to an alien nation and an AK-47, Nick and I began to wonder: how much exactly can we get away with?"
How much indeed, Gaga... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE8e6G1GXeE
