If I were to record a duet video with the one and only Tony Bennett, I’d probably be on my best behavior, making sure not to do anything that might make him uncomfortable. But I’m not Lady Gaga! In their new video, “The Lady Is A Tramp,” the ever boisterous Gaga showed up to the recording session with blue hair and a tumbler of whiskey. But of course.
In the simple studio setting, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga take on the lively Broadway classic as Tony stays stationed at his mic while Gaga dances around in a black lace gown. Tony looks on like an adoring grandpa as Gaga takes sips of her whiskey while still managing to hit the perfect notes. Despite their age and style differences, Tony and Gaga spar like professionals (maybe because they are?), and they’re actually kind of like two peas in a pod — a super-famous, highly respected pod. (And we all know Gaga does well with pods.) At the end, Lady Gaga steals a kiss, and Tony Bennett doesn’t seem to mind.
“The Lady Is A Tramp” is featured on Tony Bennett’s latest album, Duets II, out now.
