5. Anderson Cooper introduced the segment.

6. And Tucker Carlson did the actual interview.

8. Like if she was followed by the paparazzi a lot.

9. And if she’d ever kiss a girl again.

10. And what her fans thought about the recent change in her image.

11. Then things got political and he asked if she was against the war in Iraq and if she trusted the president.
