Here's what you didn't see in Anderson Cooper's profile of Adele on the broadcast.

"60 Minutes Overtime" takes you behind the scenes on Anderson's visit with the British singer. Turns out, the pair had a grand time touring her empty mansion. First, they baked cupcakes in her kitchen, pretending to be co-hosts of a mock cooking show they named "Rolling in the Dough." Then, Adele took Anderson into her messy master bedroom, where he noticed some wigs strewn on her bed. Anything but embarrassed, Adele showed off her favorite wigs and even divulged her pet names for them. Are you as charmed by this talented 23-year-old as we are?

Loved hearing what Adele had to say. I think she's great and it was a good interview. I love that she names her wigs! I think the part with her baking should have been included in the tv interview. Best of luck to her at the Grammys tonite.

Why did Anderson tell her he didn't have a pool? wasn't he swimming in one with Kathy Griffin at his home in Long Island? Or was that someone else's pool?

What is a "slapper"? I can sort of gather it from the context, but I am not sure. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

@ Carol. It's not a dumb question. It's another way of calling someone a tramp or a slu-... well you get it.

@Anon I was thinking the same thing about the pool!

Adele is adorable and her performance at the Grammy's was amazing. I've liked her music this past year, now I like her!

Am I the only one who has trouble understanding Adele's cockney British accent?
Couldn't decipher one word.
It was as though she were speaking a foreign language.
