Why Did Lady Gaga Go To VMAs As Jo Calderone? Secret Agenda?!

Lady Gaga opened the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in full character as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone. She stayed in character the whole night, and even used the men's bathroom! =)

Personally, I thought that her opening performance was a bit lengthy, lacked substance or meaning, and I didn't get it. Now I am finding that I am not alone. Everybody is wondering why she chose to do this.

I am a fan of Lady Gaga, and I think she has a lot of musical talent and is a passionate singer and songwriter. I'm NOT into her "dark side" or border-line Satanic music videos, but as an artist, I respect her craft. Actually, I enjoy her acoustic performances like this one the most.


After thinking about it, I have come up with my opinion of why Lady Gaga chose to *act* as Jo Calderone for the whole world to see.

Is Lady Gaga trying to break into the acting world?

Is she trying to get into Broadway?

Hmmm... =)

If she is, then this stunt is a brilliant move. Although Jo Calderone is not exactly the most charming dude, Lady Gaga did portray an ability to act. We all know that she can sing, and if you mix that with acting, what do you get? You guessed it... A BROADWAY MUSICAL!

You know she is from New York, right? So she grew up watching ads for Broadway musicals and probably attended several herself. Getting into Broadway is perhaps a Star's biggest dream. It is one of the ultimate achievements in the music and acting industry.

Is Lady Gaga trying to become and actor? What do you think? =)
