time to pretend
by pieces of moments
Honestly, I’m usually not a fan of Anderson Cooper. I don’t know, just seems like he’s trying to be taken seriously sometimes, you know? Like he’s haunted by his American Royalty or whatever. But when he lets loose he’s actually really hysterical in a sharp, biting way — like a funny paper cut.
This segment is one of those occasions. I laughed so hard when I saw this (thanks to my friend Toni for pointing it out to me). I mean, Anderson Cooper trying to understand Heidi Montag singing is instant tragicomedy — she’s the tragedy, he’s the comedy. Be sure to watch until the very end to see the best confused face expression in recent television history.
But seriously, people. This is the musical equivalent to paint-by-numbers…but then mixing all the colors up so it looks like dirt on paper. Mmmmm.
