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 GaGaâ€™s nude portrait below).

GaGa explained: â€œI walked in and said â€˜Well Tony here we are,â€™ and I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy and thought â€˜Itâ€™s Tony Bennett, why am I naked?â€™â€
GaGa and Tony seem to have established a very special connection. They also deeply appreciate each otherâ€™s work and dedication. The 85 year-old singer even compared the â€œBorn This Wayâ€ songstress to Picasso, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century.
GaGa said of Bennett: â€œOh Tony heâ€™s so handsome I feel terrible whenever his wife is around because he is so charming and such a gentleman.â€
Bennett said of GaGa: â€œShe is the most beautiful person I ever met but there is something very special about her. She is Americaâ€™s answer to Picasso.â€
â€œI donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m the new Picasso but Iâ€™m certainly twisted like his paintings,â€ GaGa added.
