Lady GaGa revealed she posed completely naked for Tony Bennett, with whom she recorded a duet of “The Lady Is a Tramp”, in an interview with Katie Couric during the “A Very GaGa Thanksgiving” special on Thursday (November 24).
The 25 year-old singer stripped down to her birthday suit so the veteran singer could sketch her nude for a portrait that will be featured in the upcoming January 2012 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine (see GaGa’s nude portrait below).
GaGa explained: “I walked in and said ‘Well Tony here we are,’ and I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy and thought ‘It’s Tony Bennett, why am I naked?’”
GaGa and Tony seem to have established a very special connection. They also deeply appreciate each other’s work and dedication. The 85 year-old singer even compared the “Born This Way” songstress to Picasso, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century.
GaGa said of Bennett: “Oh Tony he’s so handsome I feel terrible whenever his wife is around because he is so charming and such a gentleman.”
Bennett said of GaGa: “She is the most beautiful person I ever met but there is something very special about her. She is America’s answer to Picasso.”
“I don’t know if I’m the new Picasso but I’m certainly twisted like his paintings,” GaGa added.
