  1. After all these years, Cooper's delivery is still bad when it comes to any segment that requires him to do anything other than read the news.

  3. Well, if she's not copycatting, then it just shows that every idea she has was been done to death long before her. So why is she hailed as a unique, creative, artistic genius the likes of which have never been seen before on this planet?

  5. Two snaps for Madge and her vicious shade at Gaga...although I expect to hear more of this as the release date of her new album approaches

  6. @Chitown Kev: the quotes have been misinterpreted, it wasn't a shade at Gaga at all, but rather she was avoiding the question. The reporter asked her if she felt Gaga's was obsessed with her like a character in Madge's movie, to which she replied, she doesn't really know.
