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.
What do you think of Gaga's new album cover?
She should have sent one of her assistants up there the day before with a wad of cash.
I think Lady Gaga used to be a man... that's what I think... not that there's anything wrong with that :P
Gaga need black baby lol
MLK was brother of black people, gaga needs one brother.
Dang some of you have no sense of humor at all. I wouldn't let her in my apartment because I haven't mopped. Other than that, I would have been like OMG YOU LIVED HERE???
I think she's entertaining and she has a good voice. I don't care about her looks. Music should be fun sometimes!
Gaga grew up on NY's Upper East Side. Struggling, my ass.
how is this news? who gives a fck what this coke whRe does? are you serious? cnn u suck big time.

I love LadyBoy Gaga. I would let him in my apt so he could take a crap on my face then paint the walls a nice chocolate brown.
Now if they would only deny her news coverage...
The lady there now is probably trying to hide her hemp collection - much like Lady Gaga used to do!
Actually NOT believing in God is like believing a fairy tale...yeah so lightening hit a puddle of mud and something creeped out of the puddle that "magically" turned into a lifeform complex and intelligent enough to build a space craft that can land them on the moon....so that's not magical...thousands of ex-gays are happier now. Gays that desire to remain enslaved to that deathstyle wish it wasn't true but it is...do exgays have to fight the urge sometimes...probably...but so do recovering drug addicts...but this doesn't invalidate their recovery and we should commend them for it...we should all love gay people by supporting their efforts towards recovery...we should not "love" them by encouraging them to remain in their deathsyle and have...gay men actually have to wear plastic plugs in thei posterior to keep feces from coming out...do u know how demeaning that is...its not loving to encourage them to continue in that kind of shame
Don't like gays huh? you could at least so a little class and not just make things up like plastic plugs. Really? that just makes you look ignorant. I don't understand how that comment has been up for so long. I'm not even gay and I'm offended. You have free speech and free will and these are the kinds of things you choose to use them for. I don't know what kind of god you believe in. You obviously have no real grasp on the religion you use to spread your hate. You're wasting the gift of life you have received. It's sad
Maybe they meant that Lady GaGa will do the same thing that Dr. Martin Luther King did for his cause. Die for it, and not by choice. Did anybody else mayhaps think that it was a really off color joke? I for one, thought it was worth a chuckle, as offensive as it is...
ALL GAGA WANTED TO DO WAS GET HER RAZOR SO SHE COULD SHAVE HER NADS.
All her money and resources, and she couldn't be bothered to arrange a visit in advance? I'd keep the door closed, too. Actually, I used to live in a 5th floor walk-up studio apartment in NYC and I wonder if she would have bothered to even knock on my door, since I had a sign there that read "This apartment protected by sawed-off shotgun three night a week; you guess which three."
Lady Gaga said this was her favorite song:
Lady Gaga said this was her favorite song:
lady gaga looks like maryilyn manson except more masculine.
This whole gay arguement isn't one that can be won by either side. Neither side can be persuaded to change what they think. You all are just wasting your time.
On Lady Gaga, I don't mind her music. The way she dresses however screams"Hey! Look at me, look at me!" But that's just me.
can peole tell me why pepole suck
Maybe they should have called ahead to let the current tenets know they were coming so they could have prepared. I don't care if Aretha Franklin herself once lived in my apt. ...call first or you be sitt'n on dem steps.
that is one hot dude
Never ever compare lady guy guy to Martin lurther king jr! Lady guy guy is a music industry puppet and a dress up G.I. IT doll for the music producers. Period
He has ALL the right tatoos to signal his role as alpha male leader. He is the new style commander and soon politician. The trick is to come across as childlike while bearing all the correct power symbols. Mike Jackson never learned that lesson. Gaga is the true American pop destiny. Pop is not talent driven...but as talent assisted..just like emnem. You will submit to the wisdom of "the people."
Gay people MUST repent. ALL MUST repent and be baptized EVERYONE of you in the NAME of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye SHALL receive the gift of the Holy Ghost! PERIOD- EXCEPT a man be born of the water AND the Spirit he CANNOT enter the Kingdom of God. Argue with God and not with me
Wow you need a life.
Actually, Cristina, I was thinking someone should just put him out of his misery.
Lady G could buy that building if she wanted it. I understand why the new tenant didn't want to let her in. Who would know for sure who it was? Too many people. The apartment was probably messy...lol.
He is the very best... He has a giant male following. In time all will be part of his revolution as one huge human rights parade with tea party support. He brings you a new improved culture of true european designs. Basically.. He is what american music is all about including the name so loved by small music loving americans...gaga..gaga.. :) Just knowing of his success brings a satisfaction after his alternative lifestyle brother emnem.
Good fur her.,ah,him?f*,/ IT..I TINK ITS KOOL
Talent? For plagiarism maybe? Grace jones and Klaus Nomi called, they want their looks back, also, Ibiza circa 1992 wants it's sound back.people have no memory..
Lady Gaga is a strange looking man.
Like her or not, she can sing and write very well, and she has sold millions of albums, unlike yourself.
You can't put Gaga in the same book as Dr. MLK. Jr. Dr. King was about saving people's LIVES.
Gaga the entertainer can actually sing (not necessarily a requirement in pop music). She is actually a musician, who can sing the same song in 4 different genres (another rarity in pop music now).
Gaga does TRY TOO HARD; half of that nonsense needs to be left onstage. If I wear a leather bikini to a baseball game, guess what? I'm going to be stared at, so why flip off paparazzi?
ur right above above,
sorry been 2 busy helping the elderly secure housing Natalie, lol
i dont care if she has both under her dress, donate some damn money 2 good causes
U would think Mr. Cooper would interview some one else? Ive read one of his books, maybe they made him do this gig. U might as well interview a local teacher or another hero, not a "druggie icon" theres plenty of them who write.
Surprise under her dress. She is a chick with a ?
NICE COMEBACK N8BALL!! LOL
I don't like lady goo goo or gay people
Two thoughts: Anderson Cooper was probably relieved that the only peril in hanging with Lady Gaga was that the current tenant of her former bedsit voted to keep her out in a peaceful manner(much safer than Cairo these days)and maybe if she hadn't tried to use fresh meat in a political statement, people would respect her more.
@niceguy: I think you meant "formerly". Also, they are still gay; your community has only shamed them into pretending to be straight. The lifestyle you are encouraging them to live is the painful one. Hiding who you are and lying to everyone around you are far more damaging. Want some truth? Being LGBT is something people are born with. Believing in a magical man in the sky who hates everyone except Christians is a) something taught and b) stupid.
Why is Cooper taking time out to show case a head case?
I agree with *niceguy. You can be genetically prone to be gay, and get help and choose not to give into that sinful lifestyle. Just as an alcoholic can get help and choose not to give into THAT lifestyle. Same concept. I don't mind gay people, I just don't condone their choice of lifestyle.
I like the album cover!
whats wrong lucky luck? truth hurt?
What "truth"? That notion that kids should be bullied and/or beaten for any reason is cruel. I certainly hope that you are not a parent (and never become one). I think you're confusing truth with your uneducated opinion and a cold, dead heart.
There r thousands of formally gays
who have been through rehab programs
like Exodus International who can attest to the fact that one can choose not to be gay. And those of u who resist thiis truth resist their ability to live happier lives. We shoould have compassion for gays and encourage them to conquer that painful lifestyle. We shouldn't condone it. Any society that condones or encourages injurious lifestyles is doomed to failure.
@niceguy & N8ball- yeah you can also CHOOSE to be ignorent bigots, which clearly you have. I'm sure Westboro Church is always recruiting dumb rednecks like yourselves, so you two can go join them. Also, scientifically, medically being gey isn't a choice. Do some research on the subject. I'm sure if it was a CHOICE most would choose to be straight to avoids toolbags like yourselves, it would be easier. You guys are standing representations of why america is on the decline, not the gay community.
Yeah we as a nation have dealt with intolerance before with black people and look who won? I've got no doubt in my mind justice and equality will win again. MY GOD teachs me that, do not just lest ye be judged. Do onto others. Love thy neighbor. I'm pretty sure we share the same God except I don't use mine as a sword and shield. Hypocrites.
Nicely said Posh. Just let these idiots keep actin a fool. They'll get what they deserve when their burning along side their idol: Hitler.
lol Hitler. Yeah makes sense. Next thing you know they're gonna start talkin about erradicating other people they disagree with. Dear lord... i better spend my mitzvah money while i got it.
hahahaha "formally gays" is that when they get dressed up in tuxedos? or when they have a press conference and put it in writing and have it notarized?
N8ball – You are obviously an idiot. But we won't deny you the choice to be one.
Must be nice to coast off one album for four years. That's true talent.
She's released two. Since 2008. So that's two albums in two years. How many have you released again?
i chose to b straight the first time i saw what women have and what men have, and liked what women have. thats when.
Lol we all can tell your an 8th grade virgn who stills clings to his communities beliefs out of desperation more than anything :) Don't front
good she (it) should be locked out of life
If you don't care, why do you read the article? They need to have an IQ test before they give some of these people internet access.. I'm surprised they even know how to read!
GaGa has a voice, but her music is too digitized to hear it and she is too self centered to do any good with it.
It remains to be seen if her interest in Gay rights is anything more than a stage for her to gain more attention. As for the Album cover.... didn't Adam Lambert just bring back that look? And Marilyn Manson before him. This poor girl has two people hired to walk in front of her holding mirrors.
U-G-L-Y, she ain't got no alibi...
I'm so sick of everything u c and read saying that its ok to b gay. its not okay. no wonder the youth of today r so messed up. everywhere u look, its shoved down your throat with messages saying its okay to b "who u are." being gay is a choice. no wonder kids get bullied all the time, they're out prancin around like fairies, cuz the t.v. says they can, then they get there asses kicked daily. good.
I'm so sick of everything you see and read saying that its okay to use the grammar of a 6 year old. Its not okay. No wonder the youth of today are so messed up. Everywhere you look, its shoved down your throat with messages without the use of full words or capitalized sentences. Being a terrible speller is a choice. No wonder the average adult has the reading level of an 8th grade child; it's because people like you don't take the time to type out a coherent sentence, and then you won't be able to get a job to save your life. Good.
N8ball – You're a moron, and your comment is egregious. Go climb back under a rock where you belong.
Natalie, we appreciate your efforts, but you've just been trolled. Please don't feed the trolls.
N8ball - A lot of people would be less offend if people like you're doing would TYPE OUT WORDS instead of the (for example) "People need to B who they R" business..Grow up and use your WORDS! You mean that you cannot typr out 2-3 letter words like BE and ARE? C'mon! The height of laziness! Also those comparing Martin Luther Ling jr. to Lady Gaga: Are you SERIOUS?? And "Smashed Purr", there is NOTHING wrong with an EIGHTH GRADER being a VIRGIN! Not every child needs to sleep around before they're TWELVE. The comments here are more sickening than a lot of stories I read lately. Speaking of which: Theis country pandering to the so called "Gay Community" is way out of hand. Be gay if you choose, but stop whining when laws will NOT be changed to suit you. Whatever some people have said here, and I know froma niece's research on the subject as SHE was born with the gene that left her being gay, that a MAJORITY Of thos professing to be gay CHOSE to be gay. Lady Gaga may not be too bright, heck, she isn't, but the topic containing HER has nothing to do with anything as far as gays. She was not allowed into an apartment she formally lived in. That's the topic. Yet so many cannot STAY on it.
I wouldn't let the old tenant to my apartment in there with camera crews. How rude of her for dropping in without calling first.
After some of these comments, CNN should reconsider bloggers infesting every single story with stupidity and typos. Maybe China has got it right, they don't let idiots blog.
can t wait to see gaga having kids godzilla with motha
As usual the oh so politically correct cnn has chosen not to post a comment! Oh well that is why they r going down thje tubes!
So I guess not everyone on the planet is gaga over Gaga. And as far as those "old" album covers that were so risque, you'd never see them in America, you would have to fork over 3 times the price for a European import.
Yall haters just feedin her FAME! If u hate her so much, y even waste the time 2 blog bout it?Get mad bout something of real significance, like that punk who shot that congresswoman and killed the 9 yr old girl and the senior citizen. Downstairs Red:luv the name!
Mr.Gag Gag compared to MLK.. are you serious?
She is about to do for the gay community what MLK did for the black community???? OMG Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha hehehehehehehehehwooohooohhahahaha-HOW STUPID! I dont recall gay people being denied education or vote or made to be segregated! Dont confuse something YOU CHOOSE TO DO with WHO U R!
LMFAO, I coulnd't have said it any better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Dennish, as I recall we didn't choose to be Gay any more than someone choses their color. If it were a choice their wouldn't be a seperation of anything. You are confusing nature with politics/religion!
and when did you "choose" to be straight? moron
I had rather see her obituary than her in the nude......what a horrid, self centered, attention getting, no talent piece of plastic.
I like when people talk about how talented she is...what talent? There's no talent in Pop Music. If she didn't dress so bizzarley, nobody would give 2 shifts about her.
Who cares!she is an untalented,worthless waste of time! period
Who cares!she is an untalented,worthless waste of time!period
Apparently, you care enough to click on the story and comment.
Not only that, but he clicked, he commented, and he turned out completely wrong – go get stuffed davd
Lady GaGa is a dude!
Lady Gaga is an amazing person who is about to do for the Gay community what Martin Luther king did for African American community. I am a straight white male that loves her music and her message. She is the most important person on the pop scene since Madonna.
She isn't going to read this and then call you personally. I doubt you are a straight male. LOL, I am glad you like her, but why put her on the pedestal. This is why she thinks she can just go barge into her old place unannouced.
@T-Rex....you do realize you are the only person on Earth who uses "goober" as slang for anything other than a peanut?
She/he just copied my style yo! plus everything about NYC suk azz
Looking like a tranny? Interesting style.
I always tell Lady gaga call before you come by,and bring a nice bottle of wine.
With a nice subtle moniker like yours, I would think you'd both need to be lit.
@Redcarpet- ewww gingers.
Who cares what this not talent a** clown does.
amazing that they actually found sunglasses that could hide that nose, must be custom made.
IF SOME CRAZY NUT SHOWED UP TO MY HOUSE AND WAS LIKE WEARING A TUTU COVERED IN DEAD SQUIDS AND WAS LIKE I USED TO LIVE HERE LET ME IN TO YOURE HOUSE I WOULD KINDLY SHOW HER MY SHOT GUN
<3 you just made my day.
I was going to post a snarky comment of my own, but yours cannot be topped. LMFAO!!
dead squids... lmao. she's so arrogant to think she can just push her way into that building and demand to be let into her old apartment. and what's with the purple leather jacket. she's crazy and it's sick that the media and her fans just encourage this behavior.
Show her your "shot gun" eh? Is that what they're calling it these days....
Dude, dead squids are SO lame. They gotta be LIVE squids, amped up on crystal meth, irrigated by a coterie of muscle twinks wearing JP Gautier tidy whities spraying down ol' Gaga with sea water filled goat udders. Picture it – writhing tentacles, smooth, toned boys in couture undies squeezing goat udders, Gaga's shoes, my knees are weak.
LMAFO I bet the girl was tripping on acid and got so scared when Lady Gaga came hahaah
You wouldn't have to be on acid to be terrified by Lady Gag Gag. You just have to have never seen a single second of Madonna's career.
There was nothing in the article indicating the gender of the current tenant.
Say, Eddie King really likes "Lady Gaga denied entry to old NYC pad"...
Say ElleMiles really likes Eddie King's take on things.
I've never understood the weird @$$ outfits they wear when they're performing. I'd much rather have her come out in lingerie then I might watch : )
who REALLY give 2 shyts how her cover looks! geesh die and go away!
I have information on T-rex. He's a demented F***.
What does that even mean?
So is Brian. What a sociopath.
Talented? You must be on some very powerful drugs.....
look it up lazy azzz
