Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett soldiering on with their jazz record
There had been some speculation that the hip injury that caused Gaga to cancel her tour last month would postpone the abomination, ahem, album, but Bennett said this is not the case.
"We're working on it from now until June, and then we'll record in June. She's phenomenal," he told Rolling Stone.
In a not-so-surprising revelation, Bennett also admitted an admiration for Gaga's business savvy.
No kidding, Tony. So he's basically owning up to the fact that not only is Gaga phenomenal, but he also phenomenally loves the craploads of money she's going to make him with this record.
They're both lovely singers and great performers in their own right, but watching 86-year-old Bennett and Gaga, 60 years his junior, attempt to flirt and find some kind of chemistry with each other is just weird and kind of awkward to watch. I mean, he was born in 1926. Come on.
Gaga should just put out her own jazz album. She's got the chops for it. The old man is cramping her style. It's gross.
