LADY GAGA: Yoooo hoo! OVER HERE!
ANDERSON COOPER: I think that was the first time you’ve ever smiled that naturally in public.
ANDERSON: Is that a metaphor?
ANDERSON: Um, okay. Regardless, it was refreshing.
GAGA: Well, you’re VERY good-looking.
ANDERSON: You should see me when I’m interviewing small children. I’m pretty sure I’m responsible for at least forty to fifty current pregnancies.
GAGA: I’m thinking about wearing an Anderson Cooper face mask to my next photo op.
ANDERSON: Not….literally. Right?
GAGA: You need to be open to my artistic vision, Andy.
ANDERSON: We need to change the subject now. Let’s talk about your outfit. Aren’t you uncomfortable in that? It’s all LACE and PANTIES and CORSETS and PLATFORMS.
GAGA: That’s the entire point, Andy. I am punishing myself. For your amusement. But it’s also nearly impossible to feel uncomfortable in something after you’ve spent an entire day wearing beef as a gown.
