I just heard about Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett! Impressive to say the least.
Yeah, their work and friendship are just gold. I have more respect for Lady Gaga after seeing her interview with Oprah last year, I think. Her works suddenly felt more meaningful after hearing about the stories of her hardships.
Yeah, I always thought Lady Gaga was a total freak until I saw her duet with Tony Bennett. All her crazy stunts made me think she was a talent-less attention getter. There are a lot of those in the music business - always have been - and they usually use antics just like Lady Gaga did to get attention, often to compensate for lack of talent.
But I think in this case, Stefani Germanotta - Gaga's real name - actually developed some talent over the years or she always had it and I didn't notice 'cause I resist being drawn to controversy and attention-seeking stunts. She's a beautiful singer with attention-getting charisma. No need at all for the flamboyant costumes. I also thought she did a good job in the remake of the movie, "A Star is Born," so she may develop an acting career too.
Now I kinda like her. But I do wish she always wore classy clothes and stopped trying to do stunts. I personally prefer her when she is dressed nicely and acting demure. A little orneriness is wonderful, but goofy stunts really detract by distracting her audience away from her talents.

I was watching this performance by Alison Krauss & Jimmy Page from their new album on the CBS Saturday Morning show. This is a nice song with some get that has a bit of rock-a-billy twang going on. They make a fine duet.
