Everyone is going Gaga over the Lady. Michael Bolton has now been working with Lady Gaga on his new album called One World One Love.
Apparently, the idea for the collaboration happened before she became super famous. Here’s what 56 year old Michael Bolton has said about his new unlikely partnership with 23 year old Lady Gaga:
“I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with this young artist named Lady Gaga who I had never heard of – but they were raving about,” said Bolton. “They said she was a huge fan and wanted to write with me. No one had heard of her … but a minute into “Just Dance,” I thought, ‘This CD is gonna be huge!'” He went on to explain, “When I met her in the studio later that night, I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record, but Gaga was a superstar about to launch.” On working with her he said, “Her energy was so high and her focus excited me. She reminds me of a young Madonna, with more exuberance and emphasis on art rather than marketing,” he added.
She is unstoppable. Since she first came out, I think I had been one of the few people that thought she was going to be more or less a one hit wonder. Then, her singles kept topping the charts. Then, she kept making headlines with her bold fashion choices and no holds barred interviews. Then, she was maybe a hermaphrodite. And now, blasts from the pasts go to her to revive their careers. I still have a hard time with putting her into a category with Britney, Christina, Madonna, Kylie, etc. but if she keeps this up, she will succeed in being one of the girls. For me, I think it’s just a time thing. I think she just rose to such super stardom so fast, it’s hard to imagine it lasting at the level that it is at.
It’s of course a sappy song, but I actually kinda like it AND the lyrics. Thoughts?
