I've heard rumors that Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite. True?

You speak of the Meat Seen Round the World, do you not? I was wondering when you kids would get around to this question, which rests on a widespread rumor that Lady Gaga has both man and lady parts.
Let's be honest: Until Gaga herself comes out—no pun or implication intended—and not only addresses the hermaphrodite rumor directly, but also addresses it in a bikini, live, without the aid of Photoshop, will we ever really know?
But what's the most likely answer? Let's look at the evidence, shall we...
Here we go.
Exhibit A: That video. Check it out for yourself, right around the one-minute mark. Hawk-eyed fans swear that's some dangle-ness. Also, some photos are getting a very close look.
HOWEVER...the video—shot at, of all things, a massive music festival at Glastonbury—is pretty bad. Could be lighting, could be panties, could be a wad of panties, could be God knows what.
Exhibit B: That supposed confirmation. Blogs have gone nuts posting a supposed discussion from Gaga herself indicating she has both man and lady parts and that "it's not something that I'm ashamed of."
HOWEVER...there is not a single legitimate news source confirming that the statement ever happened. The statement does not appear on Gaga's blog nor does it appear in any video format. In fact, Gaga's manager released a statement to ABC News calling the rumors and the alleged confirmation "ridiculous."
(Reps for famous people lie all the time, of course, but at least the manager is lying or telling the truth to a legitimate news outlet.)
Exhibit C: Gaga has confirmed her bisexuality, no doubt adding fuel to this rumor. But bisexuality has nothing to do with man parts vs. lady parts, and other photos of Gaga don't completely fuel this rumor, nor do they put it to rest. And attempts to reach Gaga's people today were not immediately successful.
So where does that leave us? Holding an empty evidence sack, that's where.
