Lady Gaga Talks Jo Calderone at iHeartRadio Music Festival

Lady Gaga looks elegant backstage during the second day of the iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday (September 24) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 25-year-old singer talked to Z100′s Elvis Duran backstage before hitting the show and told him that she and her alter ego Jo Calderone are not on speaking terms.

“Who does he think he is going on national television and speaking about my personal life like that? He’s a sucker,” Gaga said, referring to Jo‘s performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

Gaga performed many of her hits during her set including “Bad Romance,” “You and I,” “Judas,” “Just Dance,” “Poker Face,” “Lovegame,” “Paparazzi,” “Alejandro,” and “Scheibe.” She also dedicated a performance of “Hair” to 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, who ended his life earlier in the week after being bullied.

The evening ended with an appearance by Sting, who dueted with Gaga on “Stand By Me” and “King of Pain.”

    I hope they include Lady Gaga in the next Star Trek movie as a singer with dark connections to the villains. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in.
    I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a techno concert of hers on a distant planet which is raided by many henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with them.

    Stefani is really stunning and very talented. She’s amazing. That woman is incredible. She can be so hot sometimes and she’s got the most incredible body. It was an equisite performance, just wonderful.

    I got chills when I heard her sing Stand By Me. WOW. Lady Gaga is really something else.

    @Chris:

    She has also fought for acceptance. Many of us have. Jamey loved Gaga. Be respectful. -_-

    @Chris: So basically by your logic no celebrity should speak about bullying or dedicate a song to a bullying victim? She performed a moving tribute to him. How does that equal making it all about her in your mind? It’s so sad to me when we have public figures willing to take a stand and talk about something meaningful and then cynics like you turn it into something negative. RIP Jamey. We love you.

    @Brittany: No..Dot’t see it. She’s in a whole different league from everyone else!

    @Chris: This is no gimmick. Where’s the gimmick? Tell me how she used his suicide for herself. She dedicated a song to him. She sang “Jamey, you’re not a freak”.How is this about her? she has sung this song many times, she’s not promoting it by using him. I’m sure his family was proud. The only thing she IS doing is using her platform to bring awareness to something so horrible. so tragic. What are YOU doing for him and for this issue? She’s a loving individual. She came out and gave the best performance of the 2 nights. She killed it with Sting. she has a voice, a body, musical talent and a real genuine love for what she does and her fans. I guess you can’t stand the fact that she was amazing and you can’t say anything about her performnace, so you jump on something else.you’re grabbing for straws just like everyone else who hates her. I knew the haters would have nothing but negative things to say about her regardless of how great she is. In your eyes, she will never be able to do anything right b/c u hate her so much. she could go around the world helping startving kids..and u haters would say its a big gimmick and about her. Do u say this about other artists who bring awareness to something or someone? Are the artists who dedicate songs to the 9/11 victims or the US army being disrespectful? You’ve been asked the question twice now on giving us all an example of how she made it about herself…and how her speaking out is any different from any other artist speaking out or dedicating a song. Your reply???????
