Re: “Did Lady Gaga use Tony Bennett to help a career in crisis?

Lady Gaga benefits far more from this pairing than Mr. Bennett. Cheek To Cheek has sold much less than Tony Bennett's previous solo/duet albums. With her last album, Artpop, it is considered a disappointment musically by fans and critics compared to her previous albums and of course sales wise. To this date, that album has only shipped (not sold) 1.8 million worldwide and her tour grossed $82 million, far less from her previous efforts and not on part with current pop stars: Katy Perry last album has sold 3.6 million WW and her tour $143 million and still counting, Beyonce's album 5.2 million, Taylor Swift album 5 million and counting. Lady Gaga definitely needs Tony Bennett more than he needs her. She needs to repair her image after year; anyone remember her getting vomited on? Exactly.
