Proving that versatile doesn’t just run in her music, Lady Gaga makes an unexpected appearance on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan for its Fall/Winter 2010 Vol. 5 issue, shot by Nick Knight. Two different cover versions are made available, each highlighting “Jo Calderone”, Gaga’s alter ego, through a piece titled “Too Cool To Care”. Offered below is a preview of the interview, with a full release set for September 10th, 2010 through select newsstands.
Where are you from?
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 do 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 ;)
