Los Angeles: Eccentric popstar Lady Gaga has gone over-the-top by gracing the cover of a fashion magazine, dressed as a guy.

The 24-year-old singer sports short dark hair and a white tank top on the front of the men`s version of the Japanese Vogue, Showbiz Spy reported online.

The model on the cover is described as Jo Calderone, who is Gaga`s alter ego.

In the accompanying interview, Calderone claims to be a friend of the the `Pokerface` hitmaker.

"I met her at a shoot (photographer) Nick Knight was doing. She`s beautiful, and funny, and interesting," Calderone aka Gaga said.

"I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said, `Don`t be baby, you were born this way.` I took her out after. The rest is private," Calderone added.
