(Newser) – Lady Gaga’s performance at the MTV Video Music Awards as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone, was totally original—right? Not so much, according to Kelly Osbourne and other Twitter users, who quickly picked up on the fact that Annie Lennox also performed in very similar-looking drag at the Grammy Awards in 1984.
