Tony Bennett thinks Lady Gaga has a 'gift'
The 90-year-old singer has praised the 'Million Reasons' hit maker for her unique talent. He told The Sunday Times' Culture magazine: "Gaga is different from anybody else I have met recently. She has the gift, she can do the whole thing - she can perform, she composes and plays piano, she had good personal training at NYU and Juilliard. Education makes a difference." Meanwhile, the 30-year-old singer - who has been close to Tony since they released their joint album 'Cheek To Cheek' in 2014 - previously admitted Tony "restored her passion" for music. She shared: "He restored my passion, my life changed so much putting out those records. It was so hard to get a grasp on all of it. Yeah I took some time away from pop music but acting and singing jazz that stuff was like being a teenager again." And the blonde beauty is only happy to take Tony's advice after he encouraged her to give up smoking. She said: "I know it's terrible. I have been yelled at by Elton, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennett, the list could go on of amazing, great people who are like, 'You need to stop smoking.' But I don't smoke cigarettes. I smoke clove cigars."
