Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt apparently has more than just acting talent. He knows his way around a guitar and microphone, too. Last Monday at downtown Manhattan’s Pianos, Gordon-Levitt performed a tongue-in-cheek rock version of Lady Gaga’s 2009 smash, “Bad Romance.”

After coolly running through the first verse, he launches into Gaga’s “Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah/Rom-mah-rom-mum-mah/GaGa-oo-la-la/Want your bad romance” as the intimate crowd claps, cheers, and laughs. “Now for those still doubting the artistic integrity of Lady Gaga, this next verse has three [Alfred] Hitchcock references and the use of the word ‘shtick’,” Joseph joked before the next verse.

Check out his performance after the jump.
