    I want to love her....but if she can't say she regrets telling R. Kelly to "do what you want with my body" then I wonder if she has really don'e the work it takes to live out her own artistic truth....or is she still just acting...and this sets a tragic and dangerous example for other young people...and if wearing your natural hair color and unmake-up'd face makes you feel surprisingly naked, then being completely honest is foreign to you.

    It is nice seeing Lady Gaga grow up. I feel this interview shows her persona more than her music interviews where she comes off as some flavor of character that is marketing her music. I feel this is who this person is for real. She is very talented intelligent and and smart. After her explanation at the end Stephen was speechless and totally understood her point.

    I don't get it. She said she sucked as an actress. Who was in American Horror Story: Hotel then? It slightly irks me that it slips her memory.
    It makes me question my sanity.


    what's the song that start the interview ? pls

    Stephen Colbert is one of those hosts who knows exactly how to bring the best out of his guest. I watched the Nicki Minaj interview and it changed how I viewed her music. This interview has done the same for me with Stefani Germanotta. She's got soul.

    I have to say I don’t really care for actors or musicians but Lady Gaga seems to grow on me more as she gets older. She is not only an awesome musician but I think equally as well as an actor and I hope to see her play in so many more rolls. My wife and I don’t go see movies a lot but we went and saw a star is born in the theater, and it was awesome. So if she puts out more movies we will definitely go see them. Hotel American horror story was when I truly found out she was acting my wife was glued to the TV every night a new part would come out, and I really don’t care for TV but that’s the only show I can tell you but I actually sat with my wife and watched. After the hotel was out on American horror show I stop watching the show. Lady Gaga keep it up!!!

    I'm not a fan of celebrities in general, no negative judgements but no following them either. This girl is humble and endearing underneath a fabulous larger than life voice. Amazing that she plays, writes, and performs music in character as well as out of character. Lovely authentic face and beautifully refined when the venue calls for glamour. I find myself interested in her acting career and willing to listen to her past and future music.

    The woman is a singer & an aspiring actress but why does she in the final 5 minutes hijack the interview and feel the need to lecture me about politics. Way to much multitasking - a task way to far if you like with some expletive deletives. Bradley Cooper is the star, not this aspiring political idiot. She has a big mouth in more ways than one but cannot be compared to Freddie Mercury - he was a class singer.

    • Jack

      +James Monaghan Excuse me but I spoke of the UK as the whole of it and all it's regions are governed by 1 power in London, with Scotland and Wales having some devolved powers but we're still governed by London. And the reason I assumed you were from the UK is because u were speaking of the Conservative and Labour parties, which are the main two parties in the UK as republican and democrat are in the US. I only assumed you were from the UK because of the the above. Initially I thought you were some God worshiping US NUT and it's looks like I was right in the first instance.

    • James Monaghan
      James Monaghan 8 days ago

      +Jack If you are going to respond to my email please do me the good grace and respond to its entirety and do not cherry pick your points please.
      Please do not mention the UK unless you are certain of all its constituent parts - most people from Britain get this question wrong.
      i also enjoy listening to other peoples political views whilst also sharing mine on a level playing field. I do not wish to be ambushed by a youngster who has not been round the block with her political views that came in from left field. Her political views are between her & her God and I do not wish to be lectured by her unless she has gravitas & that she plainly does not.
      I wont listen to her political views unless she stands for political office - nothing to do with her being Italian. You miss my point about the surname "GERMANOTTA" - try much harder!
      Your French surname is of no consequence to me.
      Please don't assume I am from the UK or anything else about me - I am writing to you from Ormond Beach. I am of 9 county Ulster heritage and wish nothing to do with the so-called UK & am a proud Celt.
      If you are Welsh - you are precisely & very exactly from Wales - why confuse the issue with the vague & imprecise term UK. The UK term is despised & hated by half of the plastic ministatlet so don't use it with me unless you know all its parts - is the Isle of Man in or out, is the Channel Islands in or out.
      Are they even in the EUSSR?
      You clearly are not listening & have no interest in other peoples views

    • Jack
      Jack 8 days ago

      +James Monaghan I am NOT even going to address most of your latest comment as we're going around in circles. Two points I feel necessary to address though:
      Her age and somehow will only want to listen to people who agree with her. I am much younger than lady gaga and I personally enjoy listening to others views.
      2. The fact you don't want to listen to her when you find out she has an Italian surname? As you address the Labour and conservative party in your comment I assume your from the UK, so am I and I'm Welsh yet I have a French surname. So what are you talking about.

    • James Monaghan
      James Monaghan 9 days ago

      dear +Jack Your repeatedly not listening to me.
      As I said earlier she has a right to her views & I do not expect as you suggest other people to agree with how I think they should act! I just don't expect to be ambushed by a singer/actress with her political views. If I want to listen to political views I can go to my local Labour Party meeting or to the political hustings to listen to politics - I could even go to a Conservative & Unionist Party meeting as I have done but if someone uses foul language more than once they get thrown out.
      I could even switch on a political programme on TV to listen to politics. However if someone came on the political programme & started singing, dancing & acting whilst talking about her upcoming film I would be equally outraged.
      I guess its all about certain standards & she falls well below them.
      There is a time and place and this was most definitely not the time nor the place. I had invested 25 minutes in the programme - so I waited to the end to see if there might be some explanation for thrusting her politics down my throat.
      Having said that I will take your advice and avoid her at all costs even if she is prepared to listen to my politics but I suspect she only has time for her own young whipper snapper views.
      If I had only known her surname was "Germanotta" I would have known to expect insane politics. No wonder she changed her name!
      I am afraid swearing on TV is totally unacceptable and most do not descend to this offensive level on a public broadcast. Toilet TV with this woman on it makes one want to gag and pray that my mother is not being offended by this totally tasteless woman.

    • Jack
      Jack 9 days ago

      +James Monaghan that was my point swearing is acceptable to some and not to others, it's really not a rarity today and I don't really understand being shocked/outraged when someone swears. And, see my last comment where I addressed when and when people can speak politics. Also, I'd like to add that even though she can choose when she talks politics, YOU can also change the channel/video. Stop being outraged and stop expecting other people to agree with how you think they should act!

    WTF is wrong with this show?!?! CBS is killing it, making SC talk to these vain, putrid guests all shill for their book or movie - and NONE have any relevance to the struggles Americans are having in this despotic age. SC is a thorn in the side of the addled dimwit in office but is becoming increasingly marginalized and irrelevant now that the Zionists at CBS are trying to distract us from the Les Moonves fiasco and sell us a bunch of watered down, pablum pushing status quo Democrats like Harris, Booker and Gilebrand to take on Trump. He needs to have Bernie, Warren, Gabbard and other barn burner leftist on his show and MORE AOC.

    • Murat Güler
      Murat Güler 11 days ago +1

      Her weirdness is because of her creative self + her PTSD from the sexual assault at the age of 19. + She's been brutally criticized by media ever since she came to the scene (that shes an hermaphrodite, satan worshipper etc) and on top of that, she broke her hip in 2011 on the 96th show of her world tour. The next album was ARTPOP and it was absolutely the worst time Gaga has been through because of media again. Take a look at ARTPOP and the street performances from that era. She worked with Marina Abramovic and she had an exhibition in the Louvre museum. What a life! (For more inspiration, you can watch 'Gaga: Five Foot Two' on Netflix. It is so inspiring and heartbreaking to watch

    GaGa is an MTF . Colbert is an FTM. She sounds just like Courtney Love here. Who is also an MTF.
    She has the sloping forehead. He does not.
    Celebrity is a cult. You must be inverted to get in.
    Ironic she would mention how shallow everyone is these days. Who promotes that? Celebrities. Obsessed with self and being famous. The general pop worships these people.
    Ford and Kavanaugh are the same people. Humiliation hazing to rise higher in the cult. Put an image of the two side-by-side.
    You'll never see her again. She isn't real and Kavanaugh is merely an actor on the political stage.

    Heah, folks. im 64 and the reason that i really miss the "old" talk shows is that, back then, they're spend at least 20 minutes or so, talking to each guest. NOW, it's about 5 minutes. And, yes, I have no doubt that they're catering to the average American's "attention span'. But, too bad, because we're missing out on so much. (And btw, HUGE fan of Gaga AND colbert. "Her voice".... And, equally amazing, she's obviously an incredible business woman which also means she is a VERY bright human being. AND, has worked her ass of and continues to do so.
