In a heartfelt post, Lady Gaga wrote, “I will miss my friend forever. I will miss singing with him, recording with him, talking with him, being on stage together.” She also added, “With Tony, I got to live my life in a time warp. Tony & I had this magical power.

Her Instagram post was lengthy, as everything she wrote was from her heart, and no words can fill that pit inside us when we are sad. Still, she tried to express how much the legendary singer Tony Bennett meant to her.

His “Cheek to Cheek” broke his own record of being the Oldest Living Performer by being the #1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. This was his debut project with Lady Gaga, where they worked together. 

He also holds the Guinness World Record of being the oldest person in the world to release an album of new material when he was 95 years and 60 days old. Even when his second album was with Lady Gaga, he beat one more of his own records for his album Love for Sale in the year 2021. 

Alzheimer’s Diagnose in 2021

By February 2021, he shared the news about when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2016. But the progression was slow, so he could keep working until retirement because of physical challenges. He disclosed all these details during his final performance at Radio City Music Hall on 3rd and 5th August 2021. 

Lady Gaga Tattooed his Name and Trumpet

In 2014, she even got a tattoo on her left hand, with a Trumpet and his last name Benedetto underneath that. When asked about it, she said it was because she would never forget their time together.
