Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have been friends for a long time, dating back to 2014 when Gaga said he saved her life. She told Parade magazine, “I felt dead. And then I spent a lot of time with Tony. He wanted nothing but my friendship and voice.”
Bennett also commented on his joy at seeing Gaga and Ariana Grande collaborate on their single “Rain On Me.” Bennett was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but he refuses to let it slow him down when it comes to doing what he loves — singing.
Susan Crow, Bennett’s wife, has acknowledged, “When he sings, he's the old Tony." Thankfully, she also confirmed in an interview that he still recognizes his favorite collaborator, knowingly noting, "Gaga is hard to forget."
