As you may recall, Lady Gaga stripped down for a photoshoot in January’s Vanity Fair so that recording legend (and duet partner) Tony Bennett could be photographed sketching her. Apparently, it wasn’t just some weird editorial concept; according to The Wall Street Journal, the finished product will soon be up on eBay.com/Celebrity, a site that helps famous people auction their things off for charitable causes. This might yet turn out to be the world’s most expensive piece of fan art.
Whose idea was it for a woman famous for her crazy clothes to get drawn in the nude by the 85-year-old singer? Not hers, judging from this quote from A Very Gaga Thanksgiving:
“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?’”
To raise money for starving kids in Africa is why, Lady Gaga. Imagine how many kids she could have fed had she actually showed nip.
