Lady Gaga posing nude is hardly newsworthy, but uh...how did Tony Bennett get involved in this? The two got to know each other while recording "The Lady Is a Tramp" for his "Duets II" album earlier this year, but we didn't realize they got to know each other that well. According to The Hollywood Reporter, photographer Annie Leibovitz asked Bennett to sketch nude pictures of Gaga for a Vanity Fair spread, and they both agreed.
Gaga recalled the incident during her "Very Gaga Thanksgiving" television special, explaining, "I walked in and said, 'Well Tony here we are,' and I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy and thought, 'It's Tony Bennett, why am I naked?'" Now, why in the world would she feel strange about getting naked for an 85-year-old?
