WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange Interviewed by…Lady Gaga?

This is undeniably weird. Halfway through a documentary called Risk, which is all about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (watch the official trailer here), Lady Gaga saunters in, dressed like a witch, complete with a pointy hat. The interview took place in October 2012, some four months after Assange found refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

You might find much of the interview is cringe-y. Or maybe you’ll find it an illuminating look at both interview and interviewee. Your call.
