Lady Gaga Wore Prosthetic Penis to VMAs

She was not born this way.

Was it method acting, or just penis envy? Either way, Lady Gaga sure knows how to commit to a look. And the pop icon, who came to the VMAs as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone, didn't stop at a five o'clock shadow to sell it. She wore a prosthetic penis, an insider confirms to Us Weekly. "I am just a guy," Gaga, as Jo, told the press backstage at the VMAs, before reportedly heading to the men's room to take a leak.

The gender-bending outfit and attitude drew both praise and ire from critics. But when Lil Wayne's pants are tighter than Lady Gaga's, you know that's rock 'n roll.
