Lady GaGa is alive and well and isn’t taking any hints from fate that she might need to take a goddamn break for a little while. Instead, she’s working as much as ever and one of her projects is a full-length jazz album with Tony Bennett asldzzzzz… oh, sorry, fell asleep on the keyboard. I’m all about the classics and Tony Bennett certain qualifies as a music legend, but that record is going to be a one way ticket to Snoozetown. Let’s let Pepaw share the news.
From Rolling Stone:
“We’re working on it from now until June, and then we’ll record in June. She’s phenomenal,” he said during a dinner at the Amy Winehouse Gala and Inspiration Awards, which recognized him with a Lifetime Achievement honor. “I get along great with her. She’s looking forward to it and so am I.”
Yeah, you two are the only ones. I love jazz music, and I love Frank Sinatra and Sam Cooke and the like, but GaGa is NOT a jazz singer. There’s no way to spin her as one. Amy Winehouse could have pulled it off, Adele could, lots of singers, but not GaGa. I’m sorry, just nope.
