The Celebrity Interviews I Can't Stop Thinking About That Give Off Interesting, Unplaceable Vibes
"Me and who?" I say as I play the clip of Jesse Eisenberg's interview with Romina Puga.
weird. They're just like us (or worse, depending on who it is and who you ask). They're awkward and funny simply because they are of the human condition.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this compilation of the weirdest (most interesting? intriguing?) celebrity interviews.

I had to kick this list off with a bang! Personally, this is one of my favorite things in existence ever, and I have to rewatch it at least once a month. While the interview received some backlash, which
branded Jesse as "obnoxious," I can definitely see a flirtatious tone here with the back-and-forth banter.
The interview where
Aubrey Plaza almost laser-beamed Michael Cera with her eyes.

In this red carpet interview for the cult classic
, you can watch Michael try to grab Aubrey's mic away from her, and what happens next is so chaotic I barely have the words to describe it. I will be rewatching the clip endlessly until I figure out if Aubrey is genuinely peeved or remarkably deadpan. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
The interviewer remarks that, "There is so much sexual tension happening here," to which Aubrey replies, "I don't know what you're talking about."

Aubrey and Michael did indeed
date for a while in the early 2010s, but as one YouTube commenter notes, "There are so many levels of irony and sarcasm in this exchange that I don't even know what's real anymore." Yeah.
Selena Gomez debuted her blue hair at the Teen Vogue Party.

There's something about her delivery — the way she bobs her head back and forth and her very clear enunciation of the word "vogue." It's almost...dare I say, camp?

When asked where the inspiration for the streaks of blue come from, she says, "I don't know! I like a little edge and a little pop in my hair, so I wanted to add something different, especially for the Teen Vogue Party."
Emma Stone was tricked by Graham Norton into thinking he had arranged for her to meet the Spice Girls.

In this interview, host Graham Norton exercised a threatening amount of power over Emma as he exploits her love for the Spice Girls. Wielding this power, he then proceeds to crush her dreams.
I mean, this is clearly the face of someone who has been cheated.
Dakota Johnson said, "Actually, no, that's not the truth Ellen — you were invited."

My list would absolutely not be complete without this gem, which features Dakota Johnson calling
Ellen DeGeneres out for lying, and has made countless rounds on Twitter (for good reason — it's hilarious).
The moment when
Shailene Woodley told her interviewer, "Well you should probably eat."
MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet / Zachary Morritt
The transcript of the most well-known portion of this interview with Jamie Lee from
is as follows: "Are you hungry right now?" "Not at all." "Really?! I'm The Pete Holmes Show so hungry." "Well you should probably eat."
Kanye West demanded answers about what Lady Gaga knows about cameras.

In this short clip from a BBC Radio 1 interview, Kanye is talking about consumerism and marketing products, when he randomly says, "'Cause look at Gaga — she's the creative director of Polaroid. I like some of the Gaga songs...what the FUCK does she know about cameras?"
Let's unpack this.

I have many questions about this particular moment, including, but not limited to: What are some of the Gaga songs Kanye likes? Does he listen to them regularly? The two were planning on doing a
joint tour back when they had just released their hit albums 808s & Heartbreak and The Fame Monster, respectively — would they be interested in collaborating again? What the fuck DOES Lady Gaga know about cameras?
Prince Harry ran out of an interview.
YouTube / On Demand News
In this 2013 interview in Afghanistan, Prince Harry is seen talking to someone offscreen, after which he is prompted to bolt out of his interview toward a helicopter. Granted, there was an apparent emergency, but it's still a hilarious, unexpected moment. To see the run happen, start the video at the 35-second mark.

This is quite literally one of the funniest interviews I've ever seen, real or fake. The interview begins at the 2-minute-and-30-second mark, where Dominic pretends to be a German interviewer. The setup was coordinated through an audio call so that Elijah couldn't tell it was the actor, and he actually believed the interview was real.
"Do you wear wigs?" "Have you worn wigs?" "Will you wear wigs?" "When will you wear wigs?"

In the interview, which gets more and more absurd with each minute, Dominic comments on Elijah's hair length in various media appearances. He then proceeds to ask if Elijah wears wigs, if he has ever worn a wig, if he will in the future wear wigs, and when he will do so, which leads Elijah to scream and burst out in laughter. Just do yourself a favor and watch the clip already!!!
Paul Rudd and Jason Segel were most likely high in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes.
FlickFlock / Rotten Tomatoes / YouTube / Via
The title truly says it all. During this interview doing promo for
I Love You, Man, Paul and Jason proceed to make up an imaginary friend named Gideon, talk in accents, make faces, and just generally goof off in the most random ways imaginable. At one point, Paul fake-attacks Jason with a mannequin. At another, Jason — nearly in tears — says, "I think they're bringing us bread." (Honestly, I'd probably cry over this news too.) All in all, I just wanna know what strain elicited this result, because I may or may not need to stock up.
And finally, when
Lady Gaga was extremely candid in this 2011 MTV interview.

In this interview with MTV celebrating the release of
, Lady Gaga is asked fan questions, one of which is, "If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk, what would you do?" Without missing a beat, Lady Gaga answers, "Die." Born This Way
