Lady GaGa: Making Beautiful Music With Michael Bolton
Now here's a real head-scratcher.
The British edition of Marie Claire reports that "Poker Face" songbird Lady GaGa is collaborating with legendary crooner Michael Bolton for his upcoming album, One World One Love—and it was GaGa's idea to work together!
"I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named Lady GaGa who I had never heard of —but they were raving about—they said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me," Bolton says.
The admiration quickly became mutual when Bolton met up with the Pantsless One in the studio.
"When I met her in the studio later that night, I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record but GaGa was a superstar about to launch—her energy was so high and her focus excited me," Bolton recalls. "She reminded me of a young Madonna—with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing."
Bolton also penned material with Ne-Yo for the album.
Can someone please tell us what is going on here?
One World One Love will be released in the UK on September 21. In the meantime, share your thoughts in the comments section: Is a Michael Bolton/Lady GaGa collaboration a recipe for disaster, or musical bliss?
