Lady Gaga left many scratching their heads on Sunday night at MTV’s 2011 Video Music Awards with her male alter ego Jo Calderone, even Britney Spears!
“It was interesting, her character,” the pop star, who was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Sunday, said to MTV News of Gaga’s drag persona.
The pair almost shared a kiss on stage after Gaga presented Britney with her award.
“We got onstage and we felt it out,” Britney explained of their onstage banter.
After Gaga – or Jo – went in for a smooch, Britney pulled away with a laugh and a smile.
“I don’t want Gaga to get pissed,” Jo told the crowd.
Brit famously locked lips with Madonna at the 2003 VMAs.
The pop star said that Gaga, who opened the VMAs as Jo performing “You And I,” never dropped the persona on Sunday night.
“She’s in full character,” Brit told MTV. “Yes, definitely.”
