Lady Gaga calls Tony Bennett for love advice.
The 30-year-old singer – who split from fiancé Taylor Kinney earlier this year – admitted that she has reached out to Tony while experiencing heartbreak.
Speaking at the legendary singer’s 90th birthday concert last week, she explained: “Because sometimes you don’t wanna call your mom and air out everything because then she’s nervous. Then you call your father, and he gets upset, and he wants to beat the guy up.
Gaga added, “So I say: ‘Who do I call when I’m in heartbreak?’ I call Tony. I really do. I really do. I call Tony.
“[He tells me] ‘Straight ahead, lady. Just go straight ahead. Because you’re a star, and the world loves you.’
“Tony taught me to truly believe in myself – the way that I do for others to believe in themselves. [And to] put my money where my mouth is.”
Lady Gaga recently revealed that Tony has also implored her to stop smoking in order to save her voice.
The star explained one of her vices is to take a puff on a “clove cigar” even though she knows it’s not good for her throat or vocal cords.
Gaga has been admonished by 90-year-old Tony – with whom she recorded the LP ‘Cheek to Cheek’ – and her other famous pals such as Stevie Wonder and Sir Elton John for her bad habit.
She confessed: “I know it’s terrible. I have been yelled at by Elton, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennett, the list could go on of amazing, great people who are like, ‘You need to stop smoking.’ But I don’t smoke cigarettes. I smoke clove cigars.”
