Watch Laurie Anderson’s Lengthy 60 Minutes Interview With Anderson Cooper

Right before last night’s unendurable Grammys, the enduring CBS news program 60 Minutes aired a lengthy interview with Laurie Anderson that was conducted by Anderson Cooper. The avant-garde artist talked about her creative process and how it’s evolved over the past five decades, from her breakout 1981 track “O Superman,” her relationship with Lou Reed, and her fascination with technology and artificial intelligence. She currently has a large exhibition on display at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC.
