Lady Gaga Talks Sex, Fame With Anderson Cooper on ’60 Minutes’ (VIDEO)
The Fame Monster herself, who tends to shy away from doing many mainstream interviews, sat down for a candid chat with Anderson Cooper for 60 Minutes. On tap during their conversation? The fact that some people call her Gaga in bed, which she says “would freak me out.” Fair enough. Also on the table? Pretty much everything else about her image, and also her rise to fame from New York City club kid to the biggest pop star in the world.

Gaga says that the pressure is always on now that she’s one of the biggest attractions in entertainment. She tells Cooper:
“Right now, we’re in a bar, right? And there’s a camera right there and a camera right there … But if I were to be sitting in this bar, and we didn’t have a scheduled interview, there would still be a camera over there and over there and over there. I’m always on camera.”
She also boldly declares that she’s proud to not just excel in music, but at being famous. “”One of my greatest artworks is the art of fame. I’m a master of the art of fame,” she said. She continued later, adding: “Part of my mastering of the art of fame, part of it is getting people to pay attention to what you want them to pay attention to. And not pay attention to the things you don’t want them to pay attention to.”
