Lady Gaga cross dresses as Jo Calderone for MTV VMAs (Video)

Lady Gaga didn’t bother with raw meat dresses at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Instead, she opened the show by assuming her male alter ego, Jo Calderone, engaging in a lengthy monologue worthy of an especially dramatic “Jersey Shore” episode, performing a spirited version of “You and I” and bringing guitar legend Brian May of Queen onstage with her.

Several Twitter commentators — this one included — noted that she looked an awful lot like Ralph Macchio, which briefly caused the recent “Dancing With the Stars” contender to become a trending topic. Her Macchio resemblance may be somewhat debatable, but her performance made for undeniably over-the-top, can’t-look-away TV. Watch it below.
