Gaga throws strop over gender question

Gaga throws strop over gender question

Lady Gaga had a journalist thrown out of a press conference after she raised questions about the singer's gender.

The ‘Poker Face’ singer was promoting her new range of headphones in Berlin, Germany, when a reporter decided to quiz her on rumours she has both male and female sex organs.

As the musician showed off the line of headphones, Collien Fernandes – who is a presenter for German TV channel ‘Viva’ - stood up and said: “I love your Marc Jacobs outfit, you look great. I do have one question for you though – have you got a penis or not?”

A furious Lady Gaga demanded Collien be removed from the press conference, and bodyguards were quick to haul the TV presenter out.

Collien later said: “I don't really understand the fuss. It's obvious someone would ask her this question after the picture was all over the news.”

Lady Gaga has been plagued by rumours she is a hermaphrodite after a video of her performing appeared to show an unsightly bulge in her costume.

The latest incident comes just days after the 23-year-old star was forced to deny the rumours on an Australian radio show.

Insisting the speculation was beyond a joke, Lady Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - said: “It's too low brow for me to even discuss. I've made fun of it before but to talk about it is ridiculous."
