It’s a pairing of old style and new swagger when it comes to Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.
The legendary singer can’t stop raving about his fellow artist, and he confirmed in an interview with CNN that he’s ready to take the next step with this young star.
“I must tell you that I’m about to make an album with Lady Gaga, and she is an excellent, intelligent person," Bennett said.
While the details for the upcoming album are still being worked out, according to some reports it’s going to be a swing album.
But this isn't their first time singing together - the icon recorded a duet of “The Lady is a Tramp” with Gaga, 26, in 2011 for his Grammy-winning album, “Duets II."
Bennett, who rose to fame in the early '60s, said Gaga can be as big as the biggest stars of his lifetime. "[A]s far as popularity - she'll be as big as Elvis Presley.”
But he also sees her as more than just a performer. The 86-year-old can recall, exactly 48 years ago this weekend, when he marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr. and thousands of others from Selma to Montgomery Alabama. And when Bennett looks at celebrity leaders in the fight for civil rights today, he thinks Lady Gaga is the leader of the pack.
“She knows how to eliminate prejudice," he said. "She's a very, very intelligent person…I think she’s going to do so much.”
i have seen tony bennet 2 times the last time was at radio city....he is a charming humble man and loved by all....
in that photo TB has blue hair. Usually it's the ladies at his age that go blue, not the men. It does match his suit though, and his tie. Probably helps him sing the blues. No worries.
is coo-coo for Cocoa-Puffs
It looks like a Cadbury egg melted in my diapers.
i agree....she's a madonna wannabe.
I think Gaga is the most demonic morden deviant above all her contemporaries!
Tony's the best! i like all italian singers!!!
In bed with a good book and a big turd.
Hip replacements are the only thing these 2 should be doing together !

That's usually the whole point of smoking weed... to get high
Can I use the worms in my poop as fishing bait?
dare it is....
Lady Gaga had a pretty wild music video in "that boy is mine". Her boyfriend had thrown her off his apartment and she returned and poisoned him. She seems to be a perfectionist because I notice she moves around a lot in her music videos. She presents wonderful entertainment although her portrayal of herself in the Simpsons was a bit negative. It showed her wearing six inch heels. But the Simpsons is a comedy after all.
I did think the "raise my hind leg to her" was pretty funny. Come on, Triumph#2, pick your own name. How about just "the insult comic"? This is too confusing for us mere mortals.
Opps! This was meant for Triumph's troll (and I use the word troll in a complimentary sort of way).
I noticed the compliment was mean't for triumph troll and not for triumph 2.....how do you know which is which...
this is a blog-just curious
are you there?
I'm right here.
thanks again for leading us too you
Hi Eunice! How are you today? I have no clue who the Triumph troll is. He's good, I must say. I just wish he'd take on his own name, so we know who is who. Yep, very confusing. Have a good day!
Yep they can cause confusion. That's why I always point it out when I see posts by my impersonator.
I'm trying to help, Triumph. Will we get through to #2? Only time will tell.
Formerly known as Triumph's doppelgänger. Happy now? Meant no harm, just kidding' around. Thanks for the compliment. Been here off and on for a while, only post occasionally. BTW, I don't think Gaga's in the same league as TB, but he can do what he wants, he's earned it. Now back for more basketball n beer.
My underwear has turned into a fudge factory.
i've seen him in concert he is a true showman...everyone should have the chance too see him in concert
i cared about this person so much and i still got the shaft every step of the way
Whoever keeps impersonating Triumph: I'm going to email you the most vile and discusting images of fecal matter that you have ever seen. Your life will not be worth living after your eyes are exposed to such filth.
Thanks anyway, but the email address is fake ( as it should be for any self-respecting troll ) and I don't do scat. I saw enough cr@p working the sewers of New York with Ed Norton to last a lifetime.
all out there...whoever that blogger is who exposed that person.
your whole personal life is on here...you need to start reading what she puts out there
NUMBER 1 FAKE....
Gaga is so unoriginal. Starting with her name – copied from Queen hit – Radio Gaga. Her songs sound like 90s Euro Dance (Ace of Base, etc). Her shows are very immoral. This generation is a lost one – they don't have good taste in music; they prefer reality shows over music videos; kids are smoking weed and getting high...nuff said
i find that revolting-
we do too
Tony says of Gaga, “She knows how to eliminate prejudice". What a remarkably stupid quote. Now excuse me while I package some of my favorite butt biscuits and FedEx them to Tony.
I want to douse both of them with my a ss gravy.
A well deserved poop shower-I concur.
I just eliminated a load of foul smelly feces from my bowels. Late taco dinner last night with extra hot sauce, refried beans and plenty of beer.
Lets make a song gaga
C'mon Tony, even I wouldnt nail Gaga, & here on the blogs, thats saying something lol.
Hey Sokman! That one made me chuckle.
Love Tony! Putting on the Ritz!!
this is the holiday financial reminder too the gay guy.....
I'd s uck tony like a garden hose
Where is sunshine and tsfu?
she's still here and still at it
Remember when Lady Gaga was on the cover of Rolling Stone with Gentleman Goo Goo (aka General McChrystal)? He was on the cover BECAUSE he was going to be relieved of his command in Afghanistan DUE TO WHAT HE SAID in the lead story of that issue.
and he is the master showman of our time...the best!
and everyone laughs at her everyday of the week when then get on marquee
Now we know he's senile. Gaga is a tramp. And not in a good way. My butt biscuits are worth more than her talent. I raise my hind leg to her.
More impersonation. Still flattering.
You're welcome. Have a good weekend everyone.
I am the dolppleganger of an unoriginal, g@y troll.
So what if I jerk the gherkin to g@y porn. Does that make me any less of a person?
its ok too yank the old shlamiel....
