Pop sensation Lady Gaga says her decision to pose nude for egendary crooner Tony Bennett as he sketched her was one of her most ‘nerve-wracking’ moments.
The ‘Bad Romance’ singer was persuaded to disrobe for Bennett – an acclaimed artist,by photographer Annie Leibovitz for a Vanity Fair photoshoot with the pair who teamed up to record a duet,Daily Express reported.
True to form,as me giving my all to my work (sic),I walked in and I said,’Well,Tony,here we are…’ and he started laughing and I dropped my robe and I got into my position. It was very,very nerve-wracking. I felt shy,it’s Tony Bennett. Why am I naked…? The first thing that Tony said to me when I saw him (afterwards) was,’Wait ’til you see this sketch I did. It’s amazing. You look beautiful’, she said.
And the 25-year-old singer admits it was a huge moment in her career because the ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco singer’ is such a legend to her.
The sketch and the Leibovitz photo session appears in the January issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
