You can't go home again. That's the lesson Lady Gaga learned when she was denied access to her old apartment while taping her upcoming appearance on CBS's "60 Minutes."
As part of her profile piece, Gaga decided to make an unannounced visit to the New York City studio where she lived for three years as a struggling singer. Standing outside the building with anchor Anderson Cooper, she pressed all of the buttons on the buzzer, hoping someone would let her in.
"We're going to do it the New York way," she tells Cooper. "Someone will listen."
Once they gain entry, the duo make their way to Gaga's old apartment, but the current tenant won't let them in or even open the door because of the camera crew. Instead, the superstar settles for sitting in the stairwell with Cooper and musing over a box of mementos.
In other news, Gaga has also revealed the cover art for her upcoming album "Born This Way." The black-and-white photo features Gaga wearing nothing but dramatic makeup, tattoos, and wildly flowing hair. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, the artwork "harkens back to classic record covers from the 1980s (think Missing Persons, Roxy Music, or Duran Duran) or even the 1970s."
"Born This Way" drops on May 23 with the single arriving on Friday, the artist tweeted. You can catch Gaga's "60 Minutes" piece before the Grammys on February 13.
