Question: Was Lady Gaga born a man?

The brief answer is no. It seems that the rumors Lady Gaga could be a hermaphrodite (having both male and female body parts) or in fact male primarily were stoked by this video which claims to show there are additional parts below the waist. However, the clip is not nearly clear enough to make a genuine interpretation. Lady Gaga was later asked directly about the rumors she is a hermaphrodite by Barbara Walters in a January 2010 interview. Lady Gaga answered simply, "No." The whole controversy was poked fun at in the music video for the song "Telephone." One of the female guards says, "I told you she didn't have a dick." Another guard responds, "Too bad."
