  • What's going on with her strange breathing?

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • The cut-off after Lady Gaga stated her brilliant answer to the question he asked, was too fast, it almost seemed punitive. It would have been great to hear something like, "Well said, thank you". A better segue would have served, but either way, a brilliant show. Well done! Lady G, is a class act!

  • One of the best interview. Watching from HK

  • Brains beauty talent and a huge 💜 heart! Love Lady Gaga beyond words! Stephen rocked the honest interview! 💚💚💚

  • ‘There are a lot of fake people in Hollywood, and Bradley Cooper is not one of them.’ Good on you Gaga

  • Love the interview! Love lady gaga she is so down to earth. She is beautiful inside out.

  • What a great interviewer!

  • I've always enjoyed some of her music but then I watched A Star is Born. I have a new found respect for her as a person, singer, actress and performer.

  • She is special ❤😊 Em must be so proud of her 😊

  • 3.11 😂🙌

  • Not hating on Arianna Grande AT ALL, but when Gaga said, “You can be a technically perfect singer but have no ability to tell a story.” I was like YES, those are the words I was looking for to describe Arianna Grande! Like, every time I hear her sing I’m like, “She’s hitting the notes but not much else.” And now I can finally describe it. I’ve hated Gaga since she first debuted, but ever since A Star is Born came out I’m strangely finding myself really liking her.

  • Bradly is after her bank account , and hes also ugly af

  • This is an extraordinary interview. She is a stunning talent and Stephen Colbert sets the standard for interviewing.

  • ive never really cared for Gaga before but since the movie and interviews, new music. i got to see such a different side, she seems so sweet and legit. Im such a fan of the movie and music also cannot stop watching interviews of gaga and bradley since lol

  • ❤❤❤

  • what a great interview. Thank you, Stephen. Thank you, Lady Gaga.

  • I like how colbert will cross his arms and prop his elbows on the desk while his guests speak. His body language and facial expressions really convey that he is listening to and appreciating his guests. He also shuts up and lets his guests speak, few hosts will do that. Great late night host i hope he sticks around for a long time

  • They always have to add in some political trash. The funny thing about this one is, Ford is almost universally NOT believed at this point.

    • thatsabadtouch Shame on you... That is nowhere near true, and you know it! On the contrary, most people believe Kavanaugh not only got away with perhaps several violent sexual crimes while all beer'd-up, but on the stand he followed Lindsay Graham's lead and threw an unprofessional and unbecoming tantrum that was also rewarded with one of the absolute best promotions possible, simply because he's also a coddled, privileged good ole boy like most Republicans in the Senate. Bottom line, if you're innocent, then why do you need quote "limited scope conditions" on an FBI investigation instead of allowing a normal FULL ONE to TRULY clear his name?!


  • Goodness. I just realized Gaga's ring is the same as Katy Perry's "engagement" ring posted on her IG. what a coincidence!

  • She looks SO HAPPY!

  • She’s simply beautiful inside and out

  • I find lady gaga's and kim kardashian's face too much similar some times....🤔

  • I agree with you lady g.

  • Love Lady Gaga she’s so nice

  • Don Lawrence, what a jerk! He made me cry every singing lesson! He was so mean to me!And I wasn’t a kid ! Back in ‘95-2001 I was a professional in my early 30’s, singing 6 days a week on 57th street @ The Motown Cafe right down the street from his Carnegie Hall studio. He would scream at me to “sing out of the top of the back of my head”which, apparently , I couldn’t do! I learned more from my elementary school chorus teacher ( Thank You Mrs. Dempsey🙏🏻)

  • Don Lawrence made me cry everyday .

  • My God.. Love her.. Talented and! Intelligent.. Damn!

  • Its a credit to Colbert's love for the film, that he allocated Lady Gaga with a 30min interview slot!

  • I absolutely Love Lady GaGa!! She's so Talented!!!

  • An extraordinary woman, a masterful interview

  • She’s so perfect

  • I loved Lady Gaga's 'stripped down self' without makeup and hair dye...lovely...but....be who you are. Big props for commenting on your own truth.

  • Fantastic interview, from both sides of the desk!

  • 4:36 LMAO, I wish someone would shamelessly defend me like that

  • I loved your interview you are so talented, beautiful, I wish you all the best in the world 💐💐💐💐

  • Such a beautiful, passionate - intelligent person. Talented beyond words!

  • There just to many song writers that go on singing and the fans are just to busy to write how they feel cause right now i am being meand it is inportant to let me know how i feel too many song writers go on without them there would no meaning in life.

    • A better way of putting all this is just letting you know i love you.

  • The ending is just too hard to take .you were beautiful being you and i love your music i love you alley.

  • Sorry the judge didnt hurt that woman gaga..

  • The moive was perfact.

  • You were your true self you both are the best and i am going too see the moive again just too feel the feelings i felt watching the moive.

  • You both are awesome and yes i love you both for touching my heart and making see how beautiful lif reall is.

  • I should say i love you both the moive has made me see music and love are best together very touching moive the best i had ever watched trust me not ever had a man say that i trust my self the moive is the best it really touches a part of anyone who has a true heart you both have that .

  • A hundred people in a room and 99 don’t believe in you

  • I want to see this movie so bad.

  • I'm rather surprised and delighted to see just how talented a serious interviewer Stephen Colbert can be, especially in this interview. But is it just me, or did I notice some oddly strange behavior emanating from the Diva in this interview?? Nothing so dramatic as you'd notice upon the briefest glance, but if you watch this conversation closely, you'll begin to see some rather bizarre facial "ticks" occur between her comments that I couldn't quite ignore, no matter how hard I tried. For many, they may have gone unnoticed, but for me it was as obvious as the nose on her face. I apologize for raining on this parade, but I think that there's something a little "off" about The Gaga that no one here seems to admit or acknowledge.

  • shes such a sweetheart ohmygod

  • Wow

  • How did she not mention AHS!!

  • I think only gaga could have done this role. Obviously, who ever did it had to take on Streisand and Gaga is still insanely underated.

  • That is a dress. And a sleeve.

  • Love Lady Gaga! The movie and the song Shallow still has a hold on me.

  • Ok

  • Love her humble spirit

  • as in lady’s bf or bradly’s gf ,doesn’t matter i would be jealous of the way she talks about him and their experience together

  • She is so cute!

  • There can be 100 red balloons in the room and only 99 believe in you 😂 I saw the film today and it is brilliant. Also - Stephen Colbert is such a good interviewer!

  • ♈♈♈Talent.. Truly a believer of that

  • I absolutely love her, she's so moving.

  • 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

  • No one ever lost any money underestimating American taste. Crap movie. 2 hours of boredom. I am now gaga.

  • Believe and receive fellow brothers and sisters...we are the perfect example of our creator...choose your thoughts wisely...bwahahaha ...."maybe its time to lets the ole ways die"...Ova

  • AInt nothin shallow bout you gurl. And also, WOW! Just Wow!

  • Oh my gosh ... I LOVE HER !!

  • At 24.56 minutes see Colbert’s hand signals 👌🏼👀

  • Wow!i salute you lady gaga it shows ,who you really is in this interview,you give connection to Colbert?while he talked no wonder you give much connection to Bradley,stay as humble as you are babe!lady gaga you're the best xx👌👍👍👍👍👌

  • She is a amazing person and deserves all the love in the world for what she has stood for. An the unique color of her engagement ring.

  • Lady gaga is such a creative soul... You can hear it even in her voice her brain is always churning a new idea

  • Wow. Never understood her fame before. Did not really care for her music. But this woman is very smart & amazing. Her acting in Star is Born is fantastic. Just Wow. ~~~ signed ~ a newly converted fan

  • Lady Gaga!♥️

  • Shape shift?

  • She is an amazing person.

  • After watching A Star is Born I just really like her, always knew she was an extremely talented musician but she's so much more.

  • The song at the end of the moive is how i totally feel.

    • I am nobody just trying to express my feelings after watching a moive that touched me deeply.

    • The moive was so real life the ending was so hard to take it changed me somehow in a good way love you both .

  • My sister said hes hot and she is married awesome song writer and moive

  • 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.

  • Is Monica Naranjo?

  • She is so cringe

  • Yeah his interview style is quite similar to Jimmy Fallon’s😂

  • Love you Gaga! You are always so grateful to God. X

  • She's an ISFP (:

  • M

  • i like lady gaga without makeup she is so pretty.

  • i watched it in a cinema in stockholm and some people sitting beside cried, haha

  • I wasnt sure about the movie, cut to me balling as a 30 year old man saying "that's the best film ive seen in years!"

  • I have always liked how he interviews and can on and on with boring the guest. This how great Stephen Colbert is.

  • “Maybe it’s because I’m a New Yorker” nah it’s bc you’re an Aries

  • I fall in love with Lady Gaga, over and over again. I love your journey as an artist, true triple threat 😘

  • What a nice interview! Both the host and the guest impressed the audience with insightful questions and inspiring answers.

  • My wife had a close call in college in 1965. I hear you loud and clear.

  • I’m happily married. This is not invasive.

  • Is your ring an engagement ring?

  • She is beautiful,amazing,nice woman...but she seems a bit strange doesn't she?

  • When i see lady gaga now i see ally. a simple lovely woman.ilove lady gaga before but now ilove her even more😍☺❤❤❤

  • 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!!!
