Kelly Osbourne: Lady Gaga copied Annie Lenox at the VMAs

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: A look at Annie Lenox’s 1984 Grammy Awards performance has found some people questioning whether Lady Gaga’s alter ego Jo Calderone copied the Eurythmics lead singer. Gaga was initially unrecognizable on Sunday night when she opened the 2011 Video Music Awards dressed in drag, staying in character all night as Jersey boy Jo Calderone.
The similarities between Lenox’s Grammy costume and Gaga’s VMA getup are striking: the dark jacket, the dramatic black bouffant, the 60s-era dance moves. However, where Gaga sported an ill-fitted jersey tee beneath her jacket, Lenox wore a more flattering black silk shirt and patterned silk tie.
This isn’t the first time Gaga has been implicated as a copycat. Some claimed uncanny similarities between “Born This Way” and Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” Also, Bette Midler recently accused Gaga of copying her mermaid in a wheelchair stage routine. And it was fellow celeb Kelly Osbourne who was vocal about Gaga’s presentation as Jo Calderone, saying “I love lady gaga but I wish she would start giving credit where credit is due!”

Lady Gaga’s alter ego, Jo Calderone, performs at 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: If you thought Lady Gaga couldn’t outdo herself after wearing a dress made out of meat to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, you are mistaken. At tonight’s 2011 awards, Gaga baffled crowds by appearing as alter ego Jo Calderone.
Calderone is hardly a lady—“he” describes himself as a guy from New Jersey whose family hails from Palermo, Italy. In stark contrast to Gaga’s racy, feminine frocks, Calderone has short, black, dare I say greasy hair, wears a white jersey tee under a dark, ill-fitting suit, speaks with a deep voice, and smokes incessantly.
In addition to opening the show by performing Gaga’s latest single, “You and I”, Calderone appeared to present Britney Spears with an award that paid homage to her impressive career, all the while making rather unladylike comments.
“Britney taught me how to be fearless…she taught us all how to be fearless. She is a pop music legend, and the industry would not be the same without her,” Calderone began benignly, before adding, “I used to hang posters of her on my wall and touch myself while I was lying in bed.”
