Anderson Cooper Inspired a Heavy Metal Song


CNN silver fox Anderson Cooper at Tulane University recently. Cooper is called a “CNN cyborg” by the group Cryptic Murmurs. I can’t contemplate that as I’m too busy being mesmerized by his dreamy eyes!

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has inspired what he calls “a soulful ballad,” a heavy metal song by the Cryptic Murmurs. The song, appropriately titled “Anderson Cooper,” includes the lyrics: “usually has a stern look on his face / stands in the middle of hurricanes” and “has never lost his composure … ever … not even once.”

You really should watch the video clip of Cooper talking about the heavy metal song named after him. There’s no reason Cooper has to have a sense of humor about himself and his reputation, but the fact that he does makes me like him even more!

Oh, Myyyy! George Takei Surprises Teen on Anderson Live.

There’s just nothing about this that I don’t love! Watch the clip.

Anderson Cooper had a special surprise for the New Jersey teen whose impassioned coming out speech at a high school ceremony made him a viral video superstar.

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Rudolph, who identified himself as LGBT while accepting an award for class actor in front of his graduating class, told Cooper that “Star Trek” actor George Takei was his idol.

Fortunately for Rudolph, Takei was waiting backstage. Watch the clip to see what happened!
