Don’t Call Me Gaga…Joe Calderone

So here are the covers to Vogue Hommes Japan with Lady Ga…er, Joe Calderone as the model. This is a Nicola Formichetti and Nick Knight shoot. We don’t get the gender-bending, greasy rabbit look either. Nothing about Gaga surprises me anymore short of her pulling a fetus holding sparklers out of a sequined hat on stage, so maybe this is her Sasha Fierce or just a creative experiment. Now, for the short interview by Jo-Ann Furniss:

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 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 ‘muscle’ 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 😉
Carry on, people.
