Lady Gaga shows off her badass male alter ego with pride in the latest photos of Jo Calderone by Terry Richardson. First appearing on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in September 2010, Calderone has quickly become one of the popstar's most famous personas. Starring in the video for her single 'You and I,' and "filling in" for Gaga at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, the bad boy alter ego has confused, mesmerized and delighted fans of the singer.
These black and white pictures of Jo Calderone by Terry Richardson show that this character won't be disappearing any time soon. Already being likened to a member of The Outsiders and John Travolta in Grease, the alter with a slicked-back 'do has no problem playing tough with Richardson in these photos. As a fan of both the NYC-based photographer and Gaga, I love these hot shots and can't wait to see more of Jo Calderone.
