Lady Gaga poses with her collaborator Tony Bennett for the cover of Parade magazine‘s latest issue.
Here is what the entertainers had to share with the mag:
Gaga on if she wants to start a family: “I thought I did, because I was feeling kind of finished with all of the chaos of my life. But then I started to spend a lot more time with Tony, and everything just became simpler, more pure, and more perfect. Now I’m going to take a lot more time before I have kids and settle down. I just want to sing.”
Tony on what he learned from Gaga: “Nobody has communicated with the public more than Lady Gaga. Ever. I trust the audience, and I’m very impressed. As far as they’re concerned, she’s part of their family. The only guy who ever did that was Bing Crosby, years ago.”
Gaga on her song “Lush Life”: “It’s heartbreaking. Six months ago I didn’t even want to sing anymore. … I tell Tony every day that he saved my life. … I’m not going to say any names, but people get irrational when it comes to money—with how they treat you, with what they expect from you. … But if you help an artist, it doesn’t give you the right, once the artist is big, to take advantage of them. … I was so sad. I couldn’t sleep. I felt dead. And then I spent a lot of time with Tony. He wanted nothing but my friendship and my voice.”
