Lady Gaga: hermaphrodite rumor is too low brow for me to even discuss

Lady Gaga had an interview with an Australian radio station in which a DJ dared to ask her about the hermaphrodite rumors. Gaga was asked specifically about a much talked about incident when she was performing at Glastonbury in which she was videotaped getting off a motorcycle, her short dress riding up to reveal something extra in that critical area. Instead of explaining that her undergarments had bunched up or giving any kind of excuse, Gaga deferred giving an answer, saying it was beneath her. Maybe Gaga understandably took offense at the question, which wasn’t phrased delicately. (Note that a previous rumor that Gaga supposedly admitted she was a hermaphrodite was based on a fake quote, which is what Gaga is asked about.)

Female DJ: Gaga there has been some footage of you on YouTube playing at Glastonbury getting off a motorbike and there’s some suggestion that there’s some interesting thing going on in your crotch. [laughs nervously] Suggestions that you’re a hermaphrodite. I’m sure that you’ve seen that footage and heard those stories.

Gaga: You know what… it’s honestly too low brow for me to even discuss.

Male DJ: Does that therefore clarify that you never posted anything on Twitter or your blog acknowledging this situation there?

Gaga: I just, I’ve made fun of it before, but to even talk about it is just ridiculous. I’m an accomplished musician and I’d much rather talk about my fans and my music than a silly rumor.

Lady Gaga handled all that very well and was pretty gracious about it, changing the subject to a pop art exhibition she’s involved witth and talking about how she does performance art. I thought she sounded a little miffed, but her response was also a savvy one. If she explained the incident away, saying “my underwear bunched up” or something similar we would accept it and move on. This way, people will continue to speculate about this issue for quite some time. There’s also the possibility that Gaga doesn’t want to talk about it for a good reason.

    I could care less if she is or isn’t a hermaphrodite, I am concerned with her claiming that she is an accomplished musician. If her stuff is considered good music from an accomplished musician, that just goes to show what a sad state of affairs the music industry is currently in.

  2. maddie says:

    Really is it any of our business if she is?

    I think it’s down right rude to ask someone anyone a question like that, she should have asked him if he stuffs socks down his pants when and if he goes out clubbing or to impress the ladies.

    I think most of DJ’s Pappzi go to far I remember when A-Rod was walking with his wife and kids, they were going to dinner, this was after the divorce and and the camera man asked A-Rod if it was true that he was spending the holiday with Madonna, right in front of his ex and their kids, so not his business and really none of ours.

    Sure we like to make snarky comments on this site and others but questions like this is so not cool.

    Whatever you say, sir.

    if there was an award for the best post of the week,Firestarter would win in a landslide. 🙂

  5. BitterBetty says:

    If she wasn’t such a boring poser, she could embrace this rumor and have fun with it instead of getting all huffy puffy. gay icon my arse.

  6. ! says:

    The hilarious part of this whole thing, that original blog post that spurred the rumors was a parody site.

  7. ! says:

    Also I find it equally hysterical that this is “too low brow” for her to discuss, when she’s given us all sorts of unnecessary details about her love life and likes to say whatever crass little thing that pops into her head.

  8. mollination says:

    On the one hand, I’d think it was kinda cool if she was a hermie because I can’t imagine how isolated that group must feel. Talk about minority. Gays and blacks need to pop a chill pill – there are other groups that have ZERO representation. If she really was, I’d say it’s not of our business


    that she chose to get off a motorcycle on stage in front of thousands without panties on.

    Obviously – she wants us asking away.

  9. gg says:

    Firestarter has obviously never seen her perform with acoustic piano. She is definitely an accomplished musician. She just writes senseless dance tunes.

    That said, she’s ruined this look by wearing those sunglasses. Should’ve worn cat-eye glasses.

    Mollination, she HAD panties, on. Watch the clip.

  10. Firestarter says:

    No GG I have not seen her perform and do not plan to. Just because she can play the piano well does not mean she is an accomplished musician. That, however, is my opinion. She cannot sing, and that is not the result of senseless dance tunes, that is the result of having a bad voice.

    DizzyBenny- Thank You! ; )

  11. gg says:

    She’s a very talented pianist and powerful vocalist whether you see for yourself or not. This is coming from being a lifelong musician myself, but it’s just an opinion and it’s a free country and I respect yours, so cheers. 🙂

  12. Salina says:

    Just because you list musician as your career, does not constitute that your an “acomplished” musician.
    Just because you can do something and perhaps, have been doing it for a long time, doesnt automatically mean your good at it.
    And she is clearly not good at it. Just my opinion. This coming from a musician and a lifelong fan of music from all genres.

  13. Miss. Thang says:

    Before she gets off the motorcycle she says “I don’t think I’m wearing any panties.” I think she’s wearing a strap-on for attention.

  14. Trillion says:

    OK, coming from a lifelong and former professional musician and an ex-Gaga hater: The woman has talent. She has a very good voice, writes great hooks, and can play the hell out of the piano. Many of Gaga’s antics are not my cup of tea either, but there’s a difference between simply not liking someone’s music and thinking they have no talent because they don’t suit your tastes.
    BTW, did she buy funny teeth from Spencer’s Gifts or something? Or is she doing performance art parody of Courtney Love’s Dr. 90210 chompers?

  15. Enonymous says:

    I don’t know, I saw that video and there was definitely something sticking out and it did not seem like her undergarment had bunched up. There is an interview that she apparently gave when she admitted to being hermaphrodite but claimed that it did not bother her so much. If true, then it would not be that big of a deal anyway, it is better for her to firmly admitted or deny it rather then letting people imagine it to be far worse then it is.

  16. Trillion says:

    I think she “seeded” that rumor for attention.

  17. Vermithrax says:

    Lady Gaga is too low brow for me to discuss.

  18. dewclaw says:

    She wrote for other established artists before she became a famous performer herself.

    Taste is taste, but she’s accomplished performer and musician. Hating on her yet refusing to check that out yet commenting on it just shows bias or jealousy. She blows madge off the stage, talentwise.

  19. Amy says:

    You can hate Lady Gaga for being incredibly weird with her questionable fashion senses and the persona she puts on.

    However you can’t deny she is talented. I was incredibly surprised when I finally got to hear her live playing the piano on Youtube without all the fancy stuff they add to songs for the radio and the CD. In fact, many artists have surprised me that way when I finally get to hear them sing live. For example Kanye West trying to sing without audiotune or whatever it is he uses to make his voice sound good= epic failure.

  20. Hieronymus Grex says:

    I almost didn’t recognize her is her earthling garb instead of a suit made of glitter, spandex, aluminum foil and skinned out muppets.

    Amy, I can deny she’s talented; causing a stir where ever you go isn’t talent. Any child can draw attention to itself.

  21. Aimee says:

    It was not a penis. It was her underware. She had bright beige underware on. I saw the movie – trust me I know what a dick looks like. Not even close.

  22. gg says:

    Talent has nothing to do with bad clothing, it’s a performance issue.

    ITA about Kanye – LOL I can’t believe the live “singing” he’s tried to pass off on tv lately. Can’t even breathe properly – needs actual singing lessons.

  23. nope says:

    ACCOMPLISHED?!?! Um.. give it a few more DECADES and then maybe… damn this bitch full of herself.

  24. Tj Wayne says:

    Firestarter, “I could care less if she is or isn’t a hermaphrodite, I am concerned with her claiming that she is an accomplished musician.”

    That was classic!!!My first good laugh in several days, thank you.

    Who cares if she is a he or a he/she? She is a media junkie, all attention is good. She is loving every minute of this without question.

  25. Xena says:

    I gotta say, anyone who is that good at drawing attention to themselves is fairly accomplished.

    You can argue about her musical career day and night, but she got the spotlight to point her way and that counts for something.

  26. p. Bear says:

    Who are any of you to criticize or try and decipher what this means, why she said this like that. Are you all in sane. Why are you so involved and or wrapped into someone else’s life when you own is probably not so good. For those of you that dont like her, thats fine but there are people out there that do so dont commit on them just like you wouldnt want those people talking about the artist of your choice. My only point is that why would you judge her anyways even if she was on something thats outside her control,”Oh Doc, can you put this on me i really want this.” She didnt choose it so why should it be a topic of discussion. Live your own life and let others live their own. The point of changing the subject is because she was there for a reason to talk about her music and to answer questions from her fans. So in truth that would make her one of the top greatest performing artists, because she is loyal to her supporting fans. she doesnt start or bring attention on herself cause there are more important things than to be rapidly involved in someone else rather than your self. Wow im glad to see that somepeople have greatly improved and grown up since highschool. thats awesome.

    why is everyone licking firestarters ass for?

  28. d&b says:

    especially dizzebenny, lick ass.

  29. mike says:

    hermaphrodite have both a vagina and a penis in human beings this is impossible so You could safely say with 100% reliability NO. Do I think she has a penis no I watch her videos thats impossible with scant close she wears. Do I think she did have a penis and got a operation no I think she is 100% female. Do i think people are just jealous of her and make up damaging rumors YES. Do I think she really cares no.

    Also give me a picture of you with ADOBE PHOTOSHOP I’ll stick a penis on your head

  30. loveless says:
