Lady Gaga: Say My Name!

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Say her name! No, her real name.
In a “60 Minutes” interview airing prior to the Grammys on Sunday, Lady Gaga reveals to guest correspondent Anderson Cooper that a select few people address her by her given name, Stefani Germanotta.
“Yeah, some people do,” she told Anderson. “Especially in bed.”
“You don’t want somebody yelling out ‘Lady Gaga’ in the throes of passion,” Anderson joked.
“No, that would freak me out,” the pop princess agreed.
While the 24-year-old may currently be on top of the world (with two hit albums, another on the way and six Grammy Award nominations), there are still doors that remain closed for Lady Gaga – including the entrance to her former Lower East Side New York apartment!
When Gaga and Anderson attempted to gain entry to the “Born This Way” singer’s old digs, they were denied entrance at the door by the apartment’s current resident, Emily Ting.
“I had the flu,” Emily told The New York Daily News on Tuesday when asked why she left Gaga out in the cold. “I didn’t want to have cameras inside.”
The denial was reportedly nothing personal for Emily, a 25-year-old fashion-industry worker.
“I love Anderson Cooper. He is very handsome. His hair is so gray and wonderful,” Emily told the paper. “[Lady Gaga] is great. I’ve definitely danced to some of her songs.”
Catch the full interview with Anderson and Lady Gaga when it airs on Sunday at 7 PM on CBS.
