Lady GaGa has recently been accused of copying Annie Lennox’s style with her stage persona of male Jo Calderone at the VMAs.
And during a recent interview with Stylist, Annie reveals her thoughts:
Recently, Lady Gaga was accused of copying your look with her stage persona, Jo Calderone.
Gaga makes incredible art. She’s exceptional. The parallel was obvious, but whether she was copying me or somebody else doesn’t make any difference. Women have been wearing men’s clothes for centuries. It’s a powerful thing when a woman wears something less feminine. It’s saying; you must look at me slightly differently, I’m not just going to be a sexual object for you. The only thing with Gaga is, she doesn’t move me. I see a lot of commerce in people’s lives; a lot of drive and ambition, but what I often feel is lacking is emotion. That’s what I love about Adele.
So when Adele wears a very paired down look of just black…
It’s so refreshing. People are reminded what it’s about. We want to be touched. We don’t need all the fripperies and excesses. We just want her voice. The problem with Gaga is, the burnout possibilities are very high. It’s like how hard do you have to work to flog that? How hard is it to be different every single day? I wouldn’t want that kind of burden.

Not only does Alice Cooper say he gets Lady GaGa, he says she IS him — but with a vagina:
Lady Gaga is the female Alice Cooper. She totally gets it. She created a character named Lady Gaga and wrote songs for Lady Gaga, just as I write songs for Alice. But when you meet her offstage, she's nothing like that person and neither am I.
Hmm, have you ever mat GaGa? She's pretty consistent to us!
But he does have a point in their similarities. While musically, they may create different styles of art, theatrically it's the same enthusiasm.
He's been known to use real guillotines with forty pound blades, boa constrictors, you name it. And let's not forget the time he hung himself with real rope!
He puts on a show and he commits, just like GaGa.
But while after the show, he can go back to being Vincent Furnier at a game of golf, GaGa doesn't go back to being Stefani Germanotta. She really IS GaGa.

Someone had a little monster in her pants all night long!
Look, here's the thing you need to know about Lady GaGa if you didn't already - girl commits. When she sets her sights on something, she owns it, she believes it and she wants all of you to believe it too. Are we surprised that she committed to being her alter ego Jo Calderone all evening at the VMAs on Sunday? No, absolutely not. Are we surprised she kept it going for the press following the show? No, of course not. Are we surprised that she reportedly wore a prosthetic penis under her Armani men's underwear?
… NO! THAT'S JUST GAGA!
If this really surprises anyone, then you clearly have not been paying attention to GaGa for the last two years! Gurl, please!
