Apparently Lady Gaga has a new drinking buddy.. a drinking on the job, buddy. And not just anybody, but the popular Anderson Cooper. For those who don’t know about him, Cooper is a prominent journalist with numerous awards to his name. So off he goes to interview Lady Gaga for a 60 Minutes show (which is to air around the time of the Grammy Awards) in February 2011.
[ad#300 x 250 L-side]BTW, Lady Gaga is in Atlanta April 10, 2011. Or rather, Duluth GA, we should say.
Anyhoo, Cooper said that 60 Minutes let’s the interviewers spend a lot of time with the people they’re doing a story on.. so he got to hang with Lady Gaga for a couple of week ends. I think the idea is to loosen up the ‘interviewed’ Cooper, NOT the ‘interviewer.’ 🙂
Well, one of the meetups happened where Lady Gaga and Cooper got together in a London pub.. tough job, I guess! Turns out that Cooper isn’t much of a drinker because he got pretty whoozy after a couple of drinks. He got so tipsy, in fact, that he was ready to end the interview. He said he wanted to stop asking questions and go home. Gee, way to go Cooper. The question is: Do we get to see any of the London pub footage on the show, or will 60 Minute’s cut it? I’m not much of a 60 Minute fan, but I might watch the Lady Gaga segment in February just to see.
