Lady Gaga at 2011 MTV VMAs 2011-08-28 18:55:11

VMAs: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga made history with her gender-bending opening performance at the VMAs — dressed in greaser gear as her "You and I" video alter ego Jo Calderone, Gaga recited a monologue before launching into the song. She wore a loose-fitting white t-shirt, black pants, and black shoes — as well as a black jacket that she ceremoniously removed once things got going. Gaga's hair and makeup were subdued, to say the least; she wore a jet black, slicked-back wig, bold brows, and some artfully applied scruff. What do you think of Lady Gaga/Jo Calderone's onstage look?

Did anybody else notice how Gaga didnt give Britney her moment to shine during her acceptance speech? Super selfish and overrated. Go away.

I am loving all the comparisons here. James Dean, maybe, too?

1984 called, it wants it's Grammys performance by the Eurythmics back. Google it.

I thought she looked INSANELY AWESOME! Every time I saw her I would smile. She COMMITS and that is worth applauding. Plus, she was dressed down and scruffy and so damn cute. Go her! :D Break down those barriers, Gaga.

the only time she broke character was when they cut away from her and Britney.

Seems like I'm the odd one out here, because I loved it! I like a good gender-bender, and if anyone could pull it off, it's Gaga.
