Lady Gaga sure knows how to handle a dodgy interviewer, but watching her absolutely roast Ryan Seacrest alive on the Grammys red carpet pre-show has us majorly cringing on his behalf.
E!'s Ryan Seacrest interviewed Gaga alongside her Shallow co-writers Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, and Anthony Rossomando, and it got painfully awkward way too fast.
He first congratulated the songstress on her Grammy win for Best Song Written for Visual Media in the non-televised ceremony, and then asked her details about her upcoming performance at the Academy Awards with Bradley Cooper.

"Next it is the Oscars, and a live performance with Bradley Cooper," said Seacrest, before handing the microphone to the singer without asking her an actual question.
The 32-year-old star mouthed yes, that she would be singing opposite Cooper, but the Joanne artist had no interest in sharing any more information on the matter.
A microphone dance ensues which has us on the floor; come ON Ryan, step it up. We have to wonder if something happened between them before, because Gaga looks like she is the farthest thing from his fan.

"You're like, 'Answer my question, but I'm not asking one,'" joked Gaga. While the initial interaction was awkward enough for us all, the interview ended on a friendly note. Thank GAWD.
Ryan cut to commercial after the pair hugged, which looked as if Gaga just did it to finally put an end to the painful experience.
Seacrest was inquiring about the Oscars, and asked about the path to all the awards. "How long did it take to write the song?," the Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host asked, referencing Shallow.
"Actually it was quick," Gaga remembered, with Mark Ronson saying it all came together within a month. We just wish that interview ended quicker…
