Everyone's raving about Lady Gaga's sexy turn as male model alter ego Jo Calderone, which graces the cover of Japanese Vogue:



In the accompanying interview, 'Calderone' claims to be a mechanic who is a friend of the pop icon:

Where are you from?
Palermo, Sicily

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 do 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 ‘muscle’ cars. Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.

What is your relationship with Lady Gaga?
I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She’s f---ing 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 ;)

Jo Calderone
