Did you know cartoon character and songstress Lady Gaga has both boy and girl parts? At one point you couldn’t be blamed for thinking her acknowledgment of being intersexed was just a publicity stunt to drive up her Twitter mentions. Supposedly, Ms. Gaga blogged this on the matter: “It’s not something that I’m ashamed of, just isn’t something that I go around telling everyone. Yes. I have both male and female genitalia, but I consider myself a female. It’s just a little bit of a penis and really doesn’t interfere much with my life. The reason I haven’t talked about it is that it’s not a big deal to me. Like come on. It’s not like we all go around talking about our vags. I think this is a great opportunity to make other multiple gendered people feel more comfortable with their bodies. I’m sexy, I’m hot. I have both a poon and a peener. Big f*cking deal.”
But then she appeared panty-less at an ourdoor concert (anyone know which one?), and gave away the store. The video, its posters claim, is “unedited.”
It is likely NSFW. And you’ll want to scroll to 1:10 for the evidence.
And at the end of the video, she appears to be … covering things up.
(Did the video above get pulled? Another version on the next page.)
Brings new meaning to the expression “Go f-ck yourself.” If this is true, more power to her. There are a lot of intersex people out there many don’t know they are intersex.
Strangely, this news does not suprise me…she’s pretty over the top in all areas, so she’s intersex too? NBD.
Guess she can ride her own ‘disco stick’…
and is this what she meant about ‘bluffin’ with her muffin’?
An obvious publicity thing. Lady Blah Blah.
By the way, intersexed children are always “treated” so to speak at a VERY early age before they develop issues, who some might think can affect their psyche. One of the genitalia is adjusted, usually the male, and then they grow up to be a female. I find “story” to be just another spectacle. And I thikn it is sad that so many in the gay community would rather talk about this than issues that really matter.
Technically, she could have Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia which occurs in genetic females and results in an enlarged clitoris that looks like a small penis.
Easier for the straight guys to find!
OMG that is so freaken hot!
I don’t understand why we don’t have LGBTI as in Les, gay, bi, trans and inter, we need to support them just as much as we need their support.
Sadly there are so many ppl with in our community that attack trans people or fem guys or butch girls we need all the support we can get and we need to stop discriminating against our own!
Love Lady Gaga even more than b4 now!!!
Q: Is a gay man still gay even if he is with someone who is intersex and may identify as a woman, even if she uses her shlong?
Just a hypothetical, the human race is so diverse.
why should i care if she’s a hermaphrodite?
i didn’t see anything, btw. and the audience wasn’t bugged, so i doubt there was anything to see. and i find this supposed blogged announcement highly suspect.
@Dave: “By the way, intersexed children are always “treated” so to speak at a VERY early age before they develop issues, who some might think can affect their psyche.

Please do not make general statements about people you clearly do not understand. And if you’re looking for articles about issues that “really” matter to the gay community, I think you’re in the wrong place.
She’s not transgender btch she’s intersex, hermaphrodite, born/made by the almighty GOD with boy and girl pieces.
Gotta love God’s creatures, they are all perfect, made in God’s image.
The inaccurate information posted on many of the comments here is disheartening. Here’s a good place to learn some facts about Intersex (Hermaphrodites exist only in mythology.) ISNA: http://www.isna.org/faq/
I like Lady GaGa, I hope the right wing religious fascists don’t start bothering her about this. All they need is someone a little different and they go on the attack. So much for love thy neighbor!
Why are people so obsessed with what’s between people’s legs? It’s seriously messed up.
“By the way, intersexed children are always “treated” so to speak at a VERY early age before they develop issues, who some might think can affect their psyche. One of the genitalia is adjusted, usually the male, and then they grow up to be a female”
Actually this practice is slowly being abolished since the doctors usually decided which gender the person would grow up as based on which surgery would be easier for them to preform on a technically level.
Naturally that ended up in a lot of intersex people having to grow up as the wrong gender and causing them to feel even more distress than it were left alone. It’s now encouraged to leave the decision what is to be done surgically to the child once they are a teenager. Anyone interested in this subject should read “As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Girl”, to gain further understanding on this subject.
“Q: Is a gay man still gay even if he is with someone who is intersex and may identify as a woman, even if she uses her shlong?”
He’s having sex with someone who identifies as a woman, so it’s straight sex. However if he’s gay or not depends on his own feelings, hypothetical gay guy wouldn’t the first gay dude to sleep with a woman.

I know it is just my opinion but were I her manager I would stress to her be careful and don’t go the way of Amy Winehouse.
This woman is on that stage totally fucked up and you all know it.
that’s weird. why wouldn’t she have worn a thong or some sort of underwear?
it would make her more interesting tho.
She’s just a silly shock queen. The 60’s generation would have laughed at her. All shock, no substance.
When are we in the gay community going to stop enabling these women? Are we so dysfunctional that we need to prop up poor female singers who show off their body parts on a constant basis?
no, only you’re dysfunctional. the, uh, “60s generation” is nothing to idolize. btw, she’s a trained singer, virtuoso pianist, and writes all her own songs. she’s been on the road performing since she was 13, and is a huge proponent of gay rights and causes.
not my personal favorite music, but see — i can get my facts right AND have a relevant opinion. you should try it some time, in between your constant, ill-informed, trollish posts.
jason, you still suck.
On towleroad, andy referred to her as a “hermaphrodite?”. C’mon, is that the appropriate terminology?
Please, let’s use the word “intersexed” cause we need at least one vowel in the GLBT thingie. GLBIT? GILBT? LGBIT?
Puh-lease, give me a break.
The simple fact is tha Ga Ga, Madonna, Britney, Fergie etc are propping up the sleazy straight guy fantasy. Showing cleavage, ass and other body parts is simply a form of T&A. We’re enabling it.
As for these female singers’ devotion to gay rights, give me a double break. Most of them are simply exploiting gay people – especially gay men – to build a power base.
Oh geez, why is this popping up everywhere? She’s said before that she doesn’t have a penis, and that blog is a fake.
@jason: Yes Jason, Gaga is going to need that “power base” in the 2010 midterms, what a maroon!
@AdamOnlineAgain: Thanks for the Intersex Link. I found it to be extremely informative. As a former RN, I have been aware of the term and intersex realities but not some of the more subtle definitions or conditions. Cheers.
As far a Ms. GaGa goes, I had never heard of her but think she is very talented and has produced alot of great music. Good for her that she is so well adjusted and accepting of herself just the way ‘god’ made her.
i dont know which concert this is, but its ripped from BBC Three, and so is likely to be a UK one – try her tour scedule. maybe the Big Chill?
Well, if she can truly fuck herself, then at least SOMETHING about this individual would be talented. God, what a hack!
@TADPOLICUS WEX: amen.
@jason: child, focus. think about the topic before you post.
Like we say in Amsterdam-Nederland.
With colorful artists like Lady GaGa.
A very sexy best of both worlds life is more fun.
Just enjoy her shows like the entertainer she is.
The outdoor concert where she is performing is Glastonbury btw. She performed on the 1st day http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glastonbury_Festival_2009
Helga von ornstein
I guess Pink will be the next “thing”.
@jason: omg, who taught my grandmother to use the internet?
you morons…..lady gaga is not a hermaphrodite or intersex…or whatever it is these days. she’s a woman.
What a sick and twisted society we have become. This is the enlightened age? Sheeesh. Bring back the dark ages. Can’t come soon enough.
And, Lady Gaga is hot? I missed that.
Does she have balls, and does the mini-dick get hard?
@ Mike L.
/”OMG that is so freaken hot! I don’t understand why we don’t have LGBTI as in Les, gay, bi, trans and inter, we need to support them just as much as we need their support.”/
How about: Bisexual, Intersex, Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Undetermined and Transexual or B.I.G.S.L.U.T. for short?
(More respectable version = BIGLIST, swap ‘indeterminate’ for ‘undetermined’)
…There are “straight” people who have problems with the gender/sex/social boxes they are expected to follow and need support. It also puts all humans onto the same level (whether they admit it or not).
Interesting things from that clip:
1. Her clothing, getting off the bike at the start was clearly choreographed. She also knew exactly where the BBC cameras were. Many of her fans would have seen even more than we can here. her comment “…what these festivals are all about is suffering for your love of music…”
2. She then referenced taking her top off at an Iggy Pop concert. Iggy Pop is famous for performing with his penis out. Her mentioning taking her top off gets the audience shouting ‘Off’ (as in take it off). She mentions streaking with Lady Starlight (who seems to be male-to-female transsexual), but being too embaressed to tell Iggy Pop when she saw him later – an interesting comment on the public/performance versus private/real-life persona.
3. Leaning on her guitarist: “…there’s only one thing that I really, really hate… cause hates a really strong word isn’t it.. yeah …but I realy really hate money honey. I don’t want your money. Keep your money don’t give it to me.”
Why is this relevant to anything? What is the connection? This could be taken to be a comment about hatred of trans-sexuals and/or anyone who is not considered ‘normal’. She is willing to end her career by finally ‘coming out’ by flashing her ‘penis’ (like Iggy Pop) because she doesn’t want our money she wants our love and respect. Note as her says “hate” her guitarist traces the heart on his t-shirt, which is a kind of miming of “I really really *love* money” but then look at his messed up make up.
As he starts to play, Lady Gaga lifts up his shirt to expose one of his nipples. Again is this a kind of ‘reverse’ reference?
All a coincidence? Lady Gaga pays massive amounts of attention to her appearance and dancing. The film was being coordinated by the BBC wih multiple cameras. Both the BBC and Glastonbury are progressive/liberal organisations and it is very possible that the whole thing was deliberately planned and edited (the BBC Three footage is edited and not broadcast live). Other venues or broadcasters could have shoved a camera right up her skirt and deliberately sensationalised/tabloidised the whole thing. In fact there is a rapid cut between three different cameras (headshot from right, body-length from stage left, and up-skirt from below the stage) but the BBC rapidly cut away from the upskirt – in other words the clip has been expertly edited afterwards to provide a brief ‘flash’.
Lady Gaga has promised to do something at the VMAs:
“I know it will be a defining moment. I sort of have this philosophy about things: there’s never a reason to do something unless it’s going to be memorable, unless it’s going to change things, unless it’s going to inspire a movement. With the song and with the performance, I hope to say something very grave about fame and the price of it.”
….at the moment there is only a very short clip from the VMAs YouTube but GaGa covered in blood = the media/society demanding she gets ‘the snip’ before she is considered a ‘real woman’? In her video for ‘papparatsi’ she ‘hit rock bottom’ after candid sex snaps (and being thrown off balcony by a ‘disgusted’ lover) it was only after surgery, then ‘killing her man’ at the end of the video that she was accepted back…
In other words Lady Gaga knows that if she cuts her penis off she will/could make millions. If she doesn’t then she will be hated by millions.
She’s not, as far as anyone with a lick of sense can tell, transsexual or intersex. Even if she is, it’s NOT our business.
Screw her and her tinnie wennie, I have had enough of all the freaks. Everytime you turn around the whole gay, trans crap is being shoved in people’s faces, it’s your business, who gives a crap, keep it to yourself.
i love lady gaga so much
This is so stupid-
1. It’s none of your business whether Lady GaGa is a boy or a girl. it’s her private life and people shouldn’t get involved.
2. No offense but some of your comments could be really offensive to her, especially the ones from DH and Dennis.
3. We as the human race are becoming soooo prejuced about the smallest things. Can’t we all just accept everyone for who they are instead of syaing ‘Oh, I don’t like you cos you’re bisexual’. Its really pointless and seriously stupid.
4. So what? even if she has a dick she’s still a great singer and artist. She just does the odd costume thing so she stands out and isn’t like every one else. She does it because that’s who she is-someone who’s not afraid to stand out or be different.
So, stop being stupid and get your act together about prejuces or you’ll just be a seriously stupid person.
i dont think she’s intersex bcuz in her song love game it say’s this ride is sick i want 2 ride on ur disco stick so she is not intersex.
I don’t know why everyone is getting so shook up about this. People are born intersexed (hermaphrodite) all the time. It is just not spoken about often and most parents decide for the baby to go female. In the case of Lady Gaga, from what she has stated, the male part was so insignificant I guess they did nothing. It can be a dangerous operation. With DNA testing now, they can find out the predominant sex but the easier operation is female and some parents opt for that anyway. Sigourney Weaver is also intersexed and had the operation as a baby. No biggy.
@Kent Golubski: Her music would have nothing to do with her sexuality. Come on folks…get real here. She admitted to something very private. Give her some respect.
i love u can you give me your emil
I have read that book! It is a real eye opener into that man’s world. But wasn’t that a botched circumcision? The doctor burnt his penis off, and they thought the sensible solution was to “recreate” him as a girl. What an awful lot of pain that young man went through! 🙁 It deals with forced transgenderism.
To be clear: Transgender is not the same as being born with both features of male and female anatomy/hermaphrodite.
I wish we could be accepting and matter of fact in our minds about these people, the way we don’t even bat an eye at people being a male or female.
I agree: humans are interesting!
Lady gaga is my favourite singer. Please don’t hurt me.
Who cares if this is real or not, If she is Intersex good for her for not being ashamed. Like I don’t really care I still love her music. If she isn’t intersex then people need to stop spreading rumors.
