Lady Gaga Talks Sex, Fame With Anderson Cooper on '60 Minutes' (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga With Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes

Now that Lady Gaga hath hatched herself in grand fashion (if you missed her egg stunt at the Grammys, check it out here), she's also opening up in other ways.

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.

Check out quotes and images after the jump!

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."

    Actually, she is one of the only celebrities today that sends out a positive messages to her fans & youth today. She encourages them to love themselves, especially those who are bullied and feel outcast. it is people like you, that say vile things, that parents need to watch out for. Wishing her to die in a fire or overdose? Is THAT the kind of message you want to send out, wishing people dead?? it is people like YOU that parents worry about, you are clearly sick in the head if you wish someone, ANYONE, dead! And what messages do other celebrities send out? All they're concerned with is men finding them 'sexy'. Gaga is an inspiration to the youth, young girls, the gay community, and for all the people that have been bullied by nasty cruel people like you. You're probably homophobic aswell, i assume? Calling her a freak, how low. And fyi, she has the largest fan base - she is so loved, people adore her, her fans are so loyal to her, and everyone that she has worked with has nothing but praise for her, saying how down to earth and kind she is. Maybe you should get to know the lady before you start wishing her dead? Watch some interviews, etc. And chill out.

    @mickrussom.... you must be an ugly, twisted little man that never gets sex... and do not speak for 'every parent' because you are just a nasty little minority, that no one agrees with. Gaga is an entertainer and wouldn't be where she is today without many people that find her fascinating. Go suck on a lemon mickrussom and have a wank.

    She is a vile brat. Stefani Germanotta (Gaga) is a youth corrupting pig woman. She is a foul diseased piece of human garbage. She will one day be penniless and strung out on drugs because this vile corrupter or youth is a twisted piece of human garbage. Germanotta, You are a disgusting pervert and every parent hates your and your trash. Germanotta, You are one of the most hated performers amongst parents, your message and politics are disgusting and wrong and we have to fight scum like off our kids while you think its a joke to pervert young minds and you have the nerve to do this form money you pig! Germanotta, You are a cancer and a pig! Germanotta, You make money spreading misery to parents everywhere with your foul disgusting no talent crap. Die in a fire - please, OD on something. Germanotta, You are a freak, making tons of money does not mean you are not a freak, and it does not mean most honest law abiding tax paying people don't have your guts for trying to destroy our children with your toxic slime..
