You can imagine why Lady Gaga would be a bit pissed. After all, not only did her male alter ego/ pretend boyfriend Jo Calderone air out their relationship woes in an monologue opening the VMAs, but then he shared a kiss with Britney Spears after presenting her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
“I’m hopin’ that she’ll take me back,” said a clearly emotional Calderone backstage after the show, as he clutched Jo Gaga’s two Moonmen for Best Female Video and Best Video With a Message. “I’m hoping she’s gonna wanna roll around with me again in bed, you know what I’m sayin’?”
The pair, who shared the screen in the video for “Yoü and I,” may be reuniting professionally too. “Well, tonight I got to show a little bit of what I can do,” he said, alluding to the show-opening monologue and piano-pounding tear through “Yoü and I” that featured Queen guitarist Brian May. “But I’m just an amateur, you know. I just don’t really do this, but I tried to show her that I could work hard to be with her, and I hope she likes it. That’s all.”
Gaga was clearly jacked about the wins, writing on Twitter after the show, “I couldn’t be more overwhelmed+grateful as I am tonight. Little Monsters inspire me. Never give up on your vision, you were born this way,” she wrote. “To win 2VMAs, Best Video with a Message + Best Female Video for ‘Born This Way’ means the world. I have never believed in a work so much.”
She also thanked her fans for throwing their love to Calderone. “Thank u monsters for supporting @jocalderone attending instead of myself,” she wrote. “He came over last night with 2 moonmen, whiskey + we watched VMAs.”
