Andy Cohen may be the biggest Lady Gaga fan of them all.
While promoting his new book “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year” on “The Howard Stern Show” on Tuesday, Cohen revealed that he had the pop star’s urine turned into perfume.
As Cohen told it, Gaga was scheduled to appear on his show “Watch What Happens Live” when she needed to relieve herself. Instead of trekking to the public bathroom shared by everyone at the studio, including Cohen himself, the 28-year-old pop star opted to do her business in the nearest trash receptacle.
“I had a [production assistant] take her urine and I said, ‘You know what would be funny? We have all this pop culture memorabilia in The Club House — Lindsay Lohan’s cigarette butt, a breast implant that was removed from a ‘Real Housewife’ and on and on,” he explained. “I said, ‘Get that [urine] and put it inside a fancy bottle and we’ll have Gaga’s pee … That’s a great piece of pop culture.’”
Following his instructions, the PA soon learned that storing urine could become hazardous: “My PA came to me a couple days later and said to me, ‘Lady Gaga’s pee is going to get toxic.'”
Instead of abandoning the urine, the PA found a recipe to turn the toilet contents into an eau de toilette, then followed the instructions.
“It smells kind of like dressed-up pee with a floral note,” said Cohen.
The Bravo figure, 46, admitted that if she “took a crap” in the trash can, he would have thought that was “disgusting.”
Johnny Knoxville became the first to test the perfume when Cohen sprayed it on him. “It seemed appropriate,” Cohen said.
Some time later, Cohen ran into Gaga at an event and wanted to share the perfume story. But instead of patiently waiting until she was unoccupied, he barged into a conversation between Gaga and 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
When asked how Yousafzai took the news, Cohen said she was “very confused” by it all.
