Lady Gaga has dressed up as a man for the promo shots for her forthcoming single, ‘You And I’.
The singer’s male alter-ego is apparently called Jo Calderone, and sees Gaga rocking a quiff, stubble and sideburns. Jo Calderone first saw the light of day last year, in a shoot by fashion photographer Nick Knight in the September 2010 issue of Vogue Hommes Japan.
Lady Gaga was recently accused of ripping off singer-songwriter Rebecca Francescatti‘s track ‘Juda’ for her recent hit ‘Judas’. According to TMZ.com, Francescatti filed a lawsuit against Gaga in a federal court to receive financial “recognition” for her apparent influence over the track.
Francescatti, who performs under the name Rebecca F, has claimed that the apparent similarities cannot be a coincidence as her 1999 track features bass player Brian Gaynor – who was allegedly employed to write songs for Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way’ album.
Chris Nero, Francescatti’s lawyer, told the gossip site:
Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody… [Rebecca] is seeking recognition for what she created.
