HS:  You asked his opinion [his brother], I don’t know if it was your first album or your second, you made a mistake of asking his opinion and he said to you, and this fucked your head up, ‘I really like your music except for two of the songs on the album’…
ES:  And then he wouldn’t tell me which he just was like 'See you later’. But he likes to fuck with people. He came to see Taylor’s show at Boston, Gillette Stadium, it was for her Red Tour and all of her dancers had this big red flags on stage and everything’s red… and you know, there’s the song Red. And we get on the tour bus afterwards and Taylor comes up and is like 'Hey Matthew, so nice to meet you in person, I heard so much about you…’ and literally the first thing he says is like 'Are you a communist?’. So he’ll do stuff just to fuck with people but everyone loves him.

Howard Stern: “This just is a random question, but you’re good friends with Taylor Swift?”

Lena: “Yeah, she’s good friend of mine, she works with my boyfriend a lot too, he produces with her…” 

HS: “Oh yeah, I find her fascinating, if you know what I’m saying…” 

LD: “I think I might have a drift of what you’re saying.” 

HS: “ Do you hang with her?”

LD: “Yeah!” 

HS: “What happens when you hang? What do you guys do for fun?”

LD: Talk, enjoy dinner, much like you might with a friend, much like you do with Bradley Cooper and Irena Shayk.”

HS: Bradley needs me, I’m his adviser. I’m his writing partner. No but.. but seriously, in other words, you… she’ll call you up and say let’s get together, and what…a whole bunch of… .there always seems like there is a ton of women around her, like it’s always like a group–”

Other female:  “She has a lot of girlfriends…”

HS: “– that you have to hang with – 

LD: “… I believe its called a squad.”

HS: “A squad.” 

LD: “She has a lot of girlfriends..”

HS: “Are you part of the squad, Lena?”

LD: “Well I’m a more of a one-on-one hanger…. just generally, that’s more my style.”

HS: “Do you ever say to her, ‘Look I don’t want to be in the squad, I just want to hang one-on-one?’”

LD: “I think she just knows that I’m a one-on-one hanger. So, she knows that I like to like, get a quiet bit of sushi. I mean, it’s not like I don’t.. I don’t dislike anyone, I’m just not good at a… Jenny will tell you, a big group hang isn’t my specialty.”

HS: “What do you talk about with her, seriously, is there a conversation about men? Because I feel she’s not successful with men. That they. … This constant dating, constant public break ups. This kind of thing. Do you advise her over this?”

LD: “I think that young’s so hard…I mean, I think about the relationships that I had in my early 20′s.. and if they had been public?”

Other woman: “Oh my god” <laughs>

S: <laughs>  “ it would have been a disaster.”

D: “It would have been a disaster. And also, not to repeat age old feminist points … but it’s like… any male actor her age who’s going out and dating –”

S: “– is doing the same thing.”

D:  “–is applauded. And to just have a perfectly normal amount of romantic partners but be held to impossibly high standards by the press? It’s an unfair and unwinnable game.”

S:  changes subject


The video @borntobeafan mentioned, where Erin mentions Axl’s excellent wriggling skills lol. It’s actually so cute, you can hear him begging her to talk to Howard at 3:39, and the wiggling line is at about 6:41, and you can hear Axl in the background, all incredulous: ‘Wiggle? Fuckin’ wiggle!

But I gotta say Baz is my favourite part about this interview. He’s so hilarious, bless him 😂

Taylor’s pretty fucking cool that over the years, no matter what creative transformation that I’ve gone through, he’s always been very supportive of that. There’s a lot on this record that’s inspired by our relationship and he’s super supportive of me expressing myself artistically. I can have nothing but respect for him for that
—  Lady Gaga to Howard Stern (24 Oct.)

After many years Rose’s appearance on Howard Stern in 1998 is on YouTube again! Although I don’t enjoy the Interview (because of HS!) it is interesting to watch. Rose talks about growing up in Italy, how Manson proposed to her and has a Little discussion with Corey Feldman.
