Lady Gaga insists that she discovered new things about her behaviour while she is having sex, by dressing as her male alter-ego Jo Calderone.
The Pokerface hitmaker appeared as Jo Calderone at the recent MTV Awards and said that creating an alternative persona for herself gave her a new understanding of some of her feelings and actions.
“I thought it would be an interesting exercise to create someone who’s not me, someone infinitely more relatable than me,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Vanity Fair magazine.
“It took a performance piece for me to understand things about who I am. And through doing this, I learned about how I am in bed. I said, ‘Isn’t it strange that I feel less able to be private in private and more able to be private in public?’ And Larry [Arancio, acting coach], said, ‘Well, maybe that’s the problem,’” she said.
“As we were working and talking this through, I remember one of the things I said when writing was that I cover my face a lot when I have an orgasm. Like I’m ashamed or something,” she added.
