Lady Gaga talks to Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes Sunday before Grammy Awards.

Lady Gaga believes the public ultimately wants to see her fail, to lose all she’s gained, she tells Anderson Cooper in a 60 MINUTES interview that’s as packed with surprises as the pop star’s outrageous wardrobe. The profile was videotaped in London, Milan and New York while the singer was on tour and will be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 13 (6pm, CT) on the CBS Television Network.
Her fans are waiting to see what Gaga will do when she performs at the Grammy Awards Sunday (13) evening, where she’s been nominated for six of the awards. What she did before at the MTV Music Awards – pretending to die a bloody death after singing her hit song, “Paparazzi” – got Cooper’s attention and curiosity. So he asked her about it.
“That’s what everyone wants to know, right?” asks Gaga. “What is she going to look like when she dies…when she’s overdosed on whatever they think I’m overdosing on? Everybody wants to see the decay of the superstar,” she explains, surprising Cooper, who presses her.
“Of course they do,” she says. “They want to see me fail. They want to see me fall on stage. They want to see me vomiting out of a night club…Isn’t that the age we live in? That we want to see people who have it all lose it all?” she asks.
When Cooper suggests that such a scenario might be the set-up for a comeback, the diva replies, “Right. It’s a movie…and yet, I am just not like that on my own time. I’m not a vomit in the club kind of girl.”
What Gaga is really is a walking, singing work of art of many types, fashion, music and, perhaps biggest of all, fame, she says. “One of my greatest artworks is the art of fame. I am a master of the art of fame,” the diva says.

They Got To Me...
The two guys from A Great Big World stopped by the Mix studios to sing their hit, "Say Something" and it happened...I cried.
If you have not listened to the song yet...well...I suggest you do, but don't cry :( These guys are very nice and I wish them nothing but success!
I recently spent some time a La Reve...want to see what I enjoyed?

Create a Pest Management Calendar
Is your mailbox filling with next year's calendars? Put them to use managing pests in the garden.
No, I'm not talking about smashing insects with the rolled up calendar. Instead, use them to develop a pest-monitoring calendar for next year.
Take a few minutes to review this year's garden journal. Look for notes on any pest problems you encountered. Make a note to watch for these pests in next year's calendar. This helps with early detection; a key to successful control.
Consider adding notes about the weather and control measures you tried that were effective. Try using preventative eco-friendly measures like barriers and traps to prevent problems. Covering your cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower before the cabbageworm moths are active allows you to prevent damage.
Setting out shallow cans of stale beer will help you minimize feeding damage by slugs and snails during wet weather.
A bit more information: No garden journal? This is a good opportunity to create one that includes your growing successes, failures as well as pest problems. Use a spiral notebook, three-ring binder or computer calendar or spreadsheet. Just make it easy and fun. That way you are sure to keep recording, referencing and putting your gardening experiences to work.
