Emily Ting reveals she did not let the star enter her apartment, which is GaGa's old home, because she had flu.

The current occupant of 's old New York apartment has denied snubbing the singer by refusing her request to film inside the property - insisting she was feeling too ill to be caught on camera.

As part of a "60 Minutes" news special, which will air on Sunday, February 13, the "Poker Face" singer took newsman back to her old Big Apple neighborhood, where she lived as a child. But the owner of GaGa's old home refused to let her and Cooper in with a camera crew, so they had to stage a makeshift interview on the stairwell outside.

However, Emily Ting insists it was not a deliberate snub to the star and her journalist pal - she was battling a nasty bout of influenza. Ting tells the New York Daily News, "I had the flu. I didn't want to have cameras inside... I love Anderson Cooper. He is very handsome. His hair is so grey and wonderful. She's great. I've definitely danced to some of her songs."
