Vogue Hommes Japan featuring Lady Gaga
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 ;)
