Anderson Cooper and Lady Gaga don't seem to have much in common, but CNN's silver fox reveals he and the outrageous pop star recently got up close and personal, and all it took was a little Irish whiskey.

Cooper, who interviewed the singer for an upcoming segment for "60 Minutes," says Gaga got him so liquored up on one of their meetings that he actually struggled to do his job.

"I was really interested to meet Lady Gaga. She's obviously a fascinating person," he told The Insider. "We actually ended up [one] day in a pub in London drinking Jameson, which I don't really drink. So, she got me to drink like two of them, and by the end I was ready to have the interview be over because I really sort of couldn't ask any more questions."

"really sort of couldn't.."

VIDEO with journalist, author, Yalie, Anderson Cooper.

The Huffington Post recently wrote of Anderson Cooper: "In constructing their dumbed down, hyped up news segments, the mainstream TV shows like Cooper's miss the actual story....embarrassing,typical-for-TV piece" [ Why Anderson Cooper Botched the Billion Dollar Pigford Story December 3, 2010 11:16 AM ]

Younger son of the writer Wyatt Emory Cooper and wealthy heiress Gloria Vanderbilt, Cooper's income [15 years in the business] with CNN finally doubled to $4 Mil.

This time getting buzzed before an interview--an added perk.

I really can't tell if that is a man or a woman... and Lady Gaga is confusing too. :-)

Two Jamesons and he's out of it?

He should have stuck to his usual Creme de Menthes.

...well Jerry Lee Lewis did sleep with his 13 year old cousin didn't he? Thinking about it now, did Kosmo Kramer steal his hair do from Jerry Lee Lewis?

But what inquiring minds really want to know is...what happened then? Did they share a vodka drink, and share a lager drink, and share a cider drink? And sing the songs that remind them of the good times, and sing the songs that remind them of the better times?

I think she’s ugly as sin. Of course, her and her people know this. That’s why they have to elaborately ‘dress’ her up every time she shows up in public.

I’ve heard no because he wants access to a privat jet so he can be with fam and recrutes. Donna Shalalah (Clinton appointee) isn’t eager to share it with him and her dogs. LOL! The fact is, Miami is a private university that doesn’t have the $$$ that state schools have. Personally, I hope it’s all about the Gru! But we’ll see where that gets us. I’ve had two glasses of pinot noir so don’t hold me responsible for grammar, punctuation, or spelling!

Ok, time to fess up. I’m a total Gaga music fan.

I'll give Stefani Germanotta (Lady Gaga) some credit. Here's a girl who had her eye on the prize and went out and grabbed it. She's not the product of a focus group, wasn't groomed by some Svengali behind the scenes. She did it all on her own. She wanted fame and success and so she went out and made it happen.

That's ambition.

Well, the one thing they do have in common is a PENIS.
I know that when she gets a new costume, the first concern is how it hides her PENIS
And, at some point during the inverview, I'm sure that ol' Cooper couldn't keep his eyes off her PENIS.

Ah, Jameson. The all-purpose brain cleaner. The first drink is very harsh. The second drink is not so harsh. The third drink is very smooth. And then you are found doing a little dance while singing off key show tunes, buck naked, on top of some building.

Or, as some victim said, “Beer elfing someone who has been drinking Jameson is like shooting fish in a barrel, with a surface-to-fish-barrel rocket.”

They got good taste in whiskey. I'll give them that much.

As far as the reporting and "music" goes, I'll pass.

Not certain, but surely they'll get up again, you're never gonna keep 'em down. ;-)

Gaga found her niche and became successful worldwide for it. Her music does like to remain in your head like the lyrics p-p-p-posted above.

Am a listener of most, but favor new Country. CMT
