Lady Gaga On Critics: ‘They Want To See Me Fail’

Much-Anticipated '60 Minutes' Interview To Air Sunday

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The first single off the album of Manhattan-born artist Lady Gaga hit the airwaves Friday ahead of her 60 Minutes interview set to air on CBS this Sunday.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, released the title track “Born This Way,” which immediately drew comparisons to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

Gaga taped a 60 Minutes profile with Anderson Cooper while on tour in London, Milan and New York. In the interview, which can be seen at 7 p.m. ET Sunday on CBS 2, the Grammy award winner said she was well aware that the more famous she gets, the bigger target she becomes.

“They want to see me fail. They want to see me fall on stage. They want to see me vomiting out of a nightclub. Isn’t that the age we live in?” Gaga mused.

Gaga, who attended Convent of the Sacred Heart on the Upper East Side, also joked with Cooper when asked how she prefers to be addressed.

Cooper: “What should I call you? Do I call you Lady? Do I call you Gaga, Lady Gaga?”

Lady Gaga: “Call me Gaga.”

Cooper: “Does anyone call you Stefani?”

Lady Gaga: “Yes some people do – especially in bed.”

Gaga is nominated for six awards at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards, including album of the year.  The Grammy Awards can be seen at 8 p.m. ET this Sunday on CBS 2.

  5. Drew says:

    Is this Marylin Mason?

  6. Emjay says:

    Are Anderson Cooper’s ratings on 60 Minutes as bad as his CNN show?

    1. mondo says:

      he gets better reviews in bathroom stalls.

  7. Emjay says:

    We don’t “want” to see you fail. We just want to see the pictures when you do.

  8. Kiba says:

    OK Hows this one.. Cooper goes Goo-Goo over GaGa! Feel better now? Sure dont want to be all mean spirited and stuff do we sis?

  9. Kiba says:

    Lets not be so ‘hard-on’ Anderrtheen now.

    1. mondo says:

      at least we know they’ve got something in common. anderson’s been called stefani in bed as well.

  10. Kiba says:

    Its people like you that have no life other than to chase these fake-people around and elevate them to God-like status. How far do you think she would go to see you? Thats what I thought. lol. Dont forget to watch the next American Idol, maybe that 80yr. old hippie will poop his pants or something!

    1. slobo says:

      Ha…Ha…Anderson Cooper takes it in the pooper, “Don Imus”…

  11. Mallory says:

    wow. what a group of hateful, mean-spirited, small-minded people. Gaga is a huge talent, as evidenced by her popularity and success. She is a hard worker. She sends an important message of tolerance to so many who need to learn it. Go back and read your comments…you people sound ridiculous. And you’re right, you don’t “get it”. How many of you achieved this level of success by age 24? That’s what I thought….

    1. Philip B Kirschner says:

      She is well liked by her fans, most of which are under educated kids who are being dumbed down by a system that wants them to fail. GAGA is failing in terms of breaking new ground, cause all she is doing is emulaitng Madonna. GAGA perverts and warms minds far worse then any of the others of our time. Heck. Just listen to some of the lyrics she puts out along with her symbolism.

    you are just jealous..AC was willing to put himself in harm’s way to be in the middle of the revolution in Egypt..more than just one. bravo AC

    As far as his celeb interviews..he’s very good at it because he is not
    overwhelmned by celebrity. He’s been raised at the very highest levels of American celebrity and is very much at ease interviewing the famous.

    1. Kiba says:

      He has been raised around a bunch of models and other fake-people and that is why he is the way he is, and I can assure you Im not jealous. Thats just how people like you try to attack someone you disagree with, and it doesnt work on me

    2. mondo says:

      he was looking to get laid in egypt, not put himself in harms way.

    3. Philip B Kirschner says:

      Chrstine, the egyption revolution is far from over. The millitary has entrenched itself and disbanded the legislative body. We have several marine divisions and two carrier groups stationed for evacuations and protection of the canal. This can become a tinderbox very quilcky. Keep watching LADY GAGA. Crude went up in one day by $6.00 a barrel and the transit lines and supply are in jeapordy. Israel is on a hair trigger alert status and you have dissent spreading all over the arab world. As for Anderson Cooper, he is an adventurer and a lightwieght when it comes ot interviewing.

  13. Bob Porrazzo says:

    Can anyone here say Illuminati?

  14. Kiba says:

    You cant take up-the-pooper Cooper serious though. I mean he got his hair messed-up in Egypt and did an eight hour show on it while two other guys from FOX got beat so bad they were in serious condition at the hospital, and they didnt do a show on them.. That silly C-linton N-ews N-etwork! lol.

    1. Milly says:

      Kiba-U R a pathetic little republiturd troll. Get up and shave, put on a tie and go out there and get a job.
