An awkward 2011 interview between Anderson Cooper and Lady Gaga is making the rounds again on Twitter.
The clip was recirculated this week by the Lady Gaga fan account @GagaDaily. In it, Cooper asks Gaga… why she hasn’t put out a press release confirming whether or not she has… a male appendage? Huh?
Evidently, at the time Gaga’s genitals were, for some unknown or long-forgotten reason, the subject of internet rumors.
When asked by Cooper if she was born a “hermaphrodite” (cringe) and had both a penis and a vagina, Gaga replied, “Maybe I do. Would it be so terrible?”
When Cooper questioned why she hadn’t put out a statement clarifying whether the rumors were true, the singer answered, “Why the hell am I going to waste my time and give a press release about whether or not I have a penis? My fans don’t care and neither do I.”
remember when everybody thought @ladygaga had a penis and instead of denying this she just said this pic.twitter.com/7I72h699nc

Anderson Cooper: “…male appendage…”
Lady Gaga: “Penis.”

lady gaga really did help a younger generation of trans women by not rejecting this and being like “ew no women don’t have penises haha 🤣” but instead being like “who gives a fuck” https://t.co/NEyJukYqrQ

We’re fairly certain Cooper would like to forget this interview ever happened. Unfortunately for him, the internet remembers forever.
Lady Gaga is currently kinda sorta promoting her forthcoming album Chromatica. The album was initially supposed to be out April 10, but she announced she was pushing back the release date because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The lead single “Stupid Love” and its accompanying music video were released on February 28 and reached the top five of the US Billboard Hot 100. The album’s second single has not yet been announced.

So it’s ok to cancel Cooper and destroy his career?
Awwww, is the right wing troll still mad because Rapist Bill O’Reilly got dumped from FOX?
There was one video where she was on stage and exposing herself and it looked like she has balls so Anderson has asked her because of that, quite simple. She could have answered no or who cares, the end.
@howardstern exactly. …even tho I never saw this…. ehhh…. next.
Cooper, who for years was in the closet and tried the flimsy excuse that he didn’t want to talk about personal stuff (While at the same time releasing a book talking all about his father, his brother’s death, his mother, etc…) digging in on that? (Eye Roll)
He went from being “daring” with her clothes to being the most boring.
You read the story and it sounds pretty horrible. You listen to the actual interview and it’s a totally different picture. Gaga wasn’t reading Cooper, she was commenting on society. She seems very comfortable to be with Cooper and be able to make her thoughts known.
Bad Queerty! Click bait AGAIN.
Yes, I wonder why gay men seem to be blamed constantly here for doing things wrong, and straight women get praised for being gay heroes. Because that’s what Gaga is. She used the gay community to sell records and some people bought the whole thing. And those people are still attacking gay men while pretending a straight white woman is a true queer hero.
Why I love Gaga: that interview, plus the Liquorville thing on SNL she did with Justin Timberlake a few years ago.
She could not have had a better response! Love it
Gaga is, of course, a HUGE advocate and she really handled this perfectly. Of course, Anderson Cooper, who stayed in the closet for 40+ years, completely mishandled and bungled this stupid, sensationalist interview.
Oh yes, blame the gay man and make the straight woman a hero. The thing I remember most from Gaga is how she tried to make her fans buy multiple records from her so she would chart better. Knowing most of her fans were teenagers with limited funds that was quite a low blow. Madonna worked for gay causes when it wasn’t cool in the 80s and 90s, Gaga did it to sell records.
@kodekn, I guess you missed the news, but Lady Gaga is openly bisexual. She is not a “straight” woman. She also is a longtime LGBTQA+ ally.
Gaga advocated for our rights while Cooper stayed in the closet and gave out a message that LGBT people should hide away and be ashamed of themselves. He’s out now, but let’s not pretend that he was here for the community in the past.
he’s just pissed she has bigger balls than he ever will. love you gaga!
back when little coward Andy was still in the closet and Kathy Griffin was protecting his lying ass.
woh lady gaga… i m proud of u….
Oh Jesus, now mike pence & old black baptist women will be hatin’ on hermaphrodites. See what you started Coop? Dick, no dick, 2 dicks God, who can we hate next? BTW, It’s so Godly to hate, mike. Go F yourself & the fat one, too.
