Lady Gaga Plays A Mermaid And A Man In “You And I” Video

By: Becky Bain / August 16, 2011

So much for that Thursday night premiere on MTV. After filming a low-concept, no-budget clip for “The Edge Of Glory”, Lady Gaga’s “You And I” video features the singer back to basics, wearing a whole closet of bizarre get-ups. The pop star even manages to cross-dress as both a man and a mermaid in what may be the most satisfying video yet from her Born This Way cycle. Also: barnyard science experiments, various dance breaks, bloody stilettos and cornfield piano jams. Watch below!

Lady Gaga – “You And I”

Gaga’s male alter-ego in the video has a name — Jo Calderone, who first premiered last September in Gaga’s Vogue Hommes Japan photo spread.

Though we’ve seen pop stars make out with themselves in their videos before — go ahead and rewatch Pink’s “Sober” to see for yourself — we can’t remember when an artist dressed up as the opposite sex during their makeout sesh. Ah, Gaga, breaking boundaries yet again!
