I absolutely LOVED Anderson's 60 Minutes interview with Lady GaGa. Not only was it his best 60 Minutes piece I think it was his best interview ever. I like Lady GaGa. She really don't open up much so for her to share what she did with Anderson I think says alot about him and his skills.

I enjoyed the behinds the scene footage more than most of the interview itself. Overall, I liked it. I'm just glad that she didn't feel the need to use the saw on him!

I said I wouldn't watch the 60 Minutes interview, but since I always watch 60 Minutes, I watched anyway.
I was totally unimpressed with Ga,Ga...and it seems the Grammy people, from the reviews on line were not impressed as well.
Let's see if she's around when she hits seventy, like Mick Jagger.
Doubt it.
Glad Naples enjoyed AC's view of Egypt, but it wasn't funny when it was happening.

Same here! The Overtime segments are more interesting. The stuff that they have decided to air is nothing new...
At least Anderson did a great job!

I love Anderson but am just not interested in Lady Gaga, didn't watch the interview either on TV or the clips here. Great stuff for the Lady Gaga fans out there and maybe this will bring in new and younger viewers to 360.

Hope it's not too late to say thanks for all the fun clips in Saturday's post.

Those CBS Overtime behind the scenes interviews are really well done--it was really interesting to see how the interviews are set up, watching AC and his producers tweak the script and watching AC do the voiceover for the report--I could watch that all day--it's not often that we get to see the real work done to get everything together. The Gaga interview was very good--I can't say I'm all that familiar with her songs other than "Lovegame" but I did see a clip of her singing "Someone To Watch Over Me" live in New York and I was really impressed--she has a very strong and soulful voice--it was not what I expected. I doubt that standards are what her audience want to hear from her but I loved it. I guess her revelation about all the booze and weed she does will cause her some trouble, but in that business, it's not really surprising. The other segments on 60 Minutes on Egypt and the Chilean miners were some of the best reports that I've seen on 60 Minutes in a while.

Hm. Anderson made me pay attention to Lady Gaga for the first time and when he finished with "I genuinely liked her" I had to agree. I'll never buy her music and I'll probably be bored discussing literature with her, but she has a gimmick and she works it pretty good. When you ignore the theatrics and fake tears, she showed a glimpse of something real. It'll be interesting to see if she can keep it up.

Most of all I was impressed with Cooper. I followed his line of breadcrumbs unwillingly, only because he, quite frankly, interest me more than Lady Gaga (me being a slightly irritated Freddie Mercury-fan) but I found the whole thing fascinating. Especially the last bit. He saw something vulnerable in her I failed to see the countless times she irked me in the past.

Interesting that the Overtime segments are the things Anderson fought in vain to keep in the program. They are the best bits?

If AC wants to impress us with a pop star interview, I'd like him to do Rihanna.
I never thought in a million years I'd like her, but I do, after seeing her on SNL. What a fantastic figure and she can wear anything and it just looks terrific....even her sheer dress, which in fact was stylish.
@Tedi B.
Just love your cat avitar. How did you do it, if you don't mind sharing.
