1 Mins read

Lady Gaga paid a touching tribute to Tony Bennett, the legendary crooner, and a dear friend, following his death at the age of 96. In an emotional post on her Instagram Monday, Gaga expressed her deep love and admiration for Bennett and the profound impact he had on her life. 

“I will miss my friend forever. I will miss singing with him, recording with him, talking with him, being on stage together,” wrote the “Bad Romance” singer. Gaga reflected on the magical bond they shared, which allowed them to transcend time and modernize music together as a dynamic duo. Their relationship was genuine, and Bennett’s optimism and belief in quality work and life left a lasting impression on Gaga.

Bennett’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease began in 2016, leading to his retirement from performing in 2021 after an illustrious eight-decade-long career. Gaga revealed that she had been grieving his loss for quite some time, cherishing the special moments they shared during his final years.

The duo released two critically acclaimed albums, “Cheek to Cheek” in 2014 and “Love for Sale” in 2021, both winning Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. The unexpected pairing of the jazz icon and pop superstar captivated audiences worldwide, and their friendship blossomed into a beautiful collaboration.

Gaga emphasized the significance of cherishing elders and not leaving them behind as their circumstances change. She praised Bennett’s vulnerability during his battle with Alzheimer’s, particularly the special moments they shared through music.

Tony Bennett’s publicist announced his passing on July 21 in New York City, just shy of his 97th birthday. Despite his departure, his musical legacy and cherished friendship with Gaga will live on through a documentary titled “The Lady and the Legend,” set to premiere on Paramount+ in September. The film will celebrate their ten-year relationship, highlighting the profound connection between the two talented artists.
