Lady GaGa And Michael Bolton? WTF?

| Filed under: Lady GaGa


This news even has us surprised!

The Lady Miz GaGa has collaborated with…. Michael Bolton?!?

It's true! Or so he claims!

GaGa worked with with Bolton, writing songs for his new album, One World One Love.

And, even more surprising, Bolton revealed that it was Lady GaGa who approached him! He apparently had no clue who she even was.

He says, "I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named Lady Gaga who I had never heard of - but they were raving about - they said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me."

Ouch. Nice way to insult your potential money maker!

Bolton then added, "When I met her in the studio later that night, I realised she was not only about to have a big hit record but Gaga was a superstar about to launch - her energy was so high and her focus excited me. She reminded me of a young Madonna - with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing."

What do U think of the pairing?

    Perez..we all can tell that you are a girlfriend of Lady Gaga..the chick has a few hits..but funny..when you pull back all the drama costumes and alter egos..she's just another artist.Grace Jones been there done that in the 80's..so Lady Gaga aint nothing new…Next year it will be another it girl..the test of time is how long will she stay hot as a performer…to be so young..chick looks old..and her ass looks lumpy to be in her 20's…but her tunes are catchy when you high..or drunk..lol

    say what you will about michael bolton, he's written many hit songs for other artists. his track record and career in the music industry is proven and has had longevity. your friend's has spanned all of what? five years thus far? i'm not a fan of either one, but let's give credit where credit is due, mario.

  9. 9

    WTF happened to her she looks 60! :o

  10. 10

    Bolton is a pathetic looser!

  11. 11

    LOL…I thought this was going to say SEPERATED AT BIRTH!

  12. 12

    crap tends to stick together.

  13. 29 says – reply to this


    you being surprised by this only shows that you really aren't as up her fugly ass as you'd like us to believe. you're a pathetic cow…and so is your sister.

  14. 14

    Wow, more Gaga/Madonna comparison. I love her so much! >:D Screw haters~

  15. 15

    Bolton? Weird and kinda funny turn of events. They've both got talent, so let's see what comes out.

  16. 16

    he looks like he could be his father.

  17. 17

    ermm.. he doesn't know who lady gaga is and i have no idea who the fuck he is…

  18. 18

    i think he should run..run like he's never ran before.

  19. 19

    maybe they can merge how am I supposed to live without you..in a love game..

  20. 20

    How was it that he insulted her? He's just saying he's never heard of her before.

  21. 21

    ….and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing….sorry but that made me choke from laughing..seen those pink poodle pictures?? how's that not marketing.

    CaCa is a marketing product, she is marketed as 'artsy fartsy' but is just an unoriginal copy cat that caught a break.
    Enjoy while it lasts honey

  22. 22

    yes WTF?

  23. 23

    Perez, I'm about your age (maybe a couple of years younger) and I've loved michael bolton since I was about 10. After only a few years out, lady gaga is already getting on my f**cking nerves. Longevity is what counts - not the "flavor of the moment". Learn some RESPECT.

  24. 24

    trash + trash = pefect match :)

  25. 25

    She's going for the shock value, and Perez has taken the bait.

  26. 26

    Unusual but why not?
    Certainly, something no other contemporary artist would do.
    PS… not nor ever have been a Bolton fan, but I certainly don't hate him.

  27. 27

    Re: the squirrel

    Hahaha I saw what you did there!

  28. 28

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Hey Sweets! I've always liked some of Boltons songs. We shall see how this turns out. Good luck!

  29. 29

    Michael Bolton will always be the king of adult contemporary soft rock.

  31. 31

    he didn't know who she was bcoz shes not the big deal you make her out to be!!!! get a friggin hint!!!!

  32. 32

    Whatever…but…I've noticed a few times on your site that you spell "realized" incorrectly…
    what's up…it's always in a quote…like this…Bolton then added, "When I met her in the studio later that night, I realised …blah, blah, blah…no one gives a shit about your "wifey", but a lot of folks care about spelling.
    Is it your fuck up or someone elses?
    love love

  33. 33

    Ohhhh my goonies…. people hella hate on La Gaga…. too bad… I don't think it's as deep as some people who hate on her are portraying her image to be. I don't think she's attention craving or trying too hard… I think most of us can't admit that there is a little person inside ot us that we REALLY wanna be an image that we are all TRYING to portray… if she seems like she's trying too hard.. it's cuz she's doing what all of us don't have the balls to do… NOT GIVING A F***… and that darlin is what ticks the hater… cuz honey the hater needs to give a F***. BTW …I think they'd make some FAB baby makin music. ;)

  34. 34

    What happened to the kery katona posting that you pulled?

  35. 35

    He must be getting desperate for a comeback.

  36. @v@ says – reply to this


    Bolton thought she was in the zone. She was, because she phoned him up. More than that, (and she wasn't famous yet) if he recorded a song that she wrote, she would be in the money.

  37. 37

    where are my earplugs??

    she's just as creepy looking as sherrie moon in the rob zombie horror flicks.

  48. 48

    do you really expect everyone to know who she is?

  49. 49

    Wikipedia says

    "Bolton has a new album being released in the UK on 21 September 2009 entitled "One world, One Love". The first single entitled 'Just One Love', is being released on 14 September 2009.[citation needed] This new album is a collaboration with other artists such as Ne-Yo and Lady Ga Ga.[2]"

    'Emphasis on art rather than marketing'?! who is he kidding?!

  51. 51

    Well….they both suck, so they should "collaberate"

  52. 52

    lol lady gaga is so awsome lol.. but why is she making music with bolton??????????????????????????????????????????? :?

  53. 53

    A "has been" with a "soon to be forgotten"…A perfect combination of crap!

  54. 54

    True story: One of my proudest achievements in life was accidentally body slamming Mr. Bolton immediately after he sang the national anthem at the World Series in 1991. I was trying to run out onto the field to see the opening pitch (I was working the game and had a field pass) and slammed into him while coming around the final blind corner at top speed. I am 5'10". Mr. Bolton, uh, is not.

  55. 55

    The guy is like 55 yrs old. So him never hearing of Lady GaGa should not be a surprise. He's not even in her genre of music. Why is that insulting?? Perez, I love ya, but you've got to be less sensitive when it comes to this chick! (Think Tori Amos comments)

  56. 56

    i heard she had a dick

  57. 57

    Michael and Lady Gaga are both very talented songwriters and singers. One of the new songs they wrote together for the new album is Murder My Heart…heard it and it is terrific.

  58. 58

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo l LOOOOOOOOOVE LADY GAGA!!!!!!!

  59. 59

    michael bolton is one of the best singers going he has sold more than 53 million records and written loads of hits for other artists including cher, and his new album is out on the 21st september in the uk called one world one love in which he has collaberated with young singers like lady ga ga and ne-yo you can buy the single that comes out before the album on the 14th september DONT KNOCK IT BEFORE YOU LISTEN TO IT he is great

  60. 60

    Ga! Ga! Scrapping the bottom of the barrel!

  61. 61

    Wonder who has the bigger cock?

  62. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: AmuseMe – @56 - Bolton was still a baseball playing hardbody back in 1991, so your body hit was likely barely a blip on his radar. I watched him play a charity game they staged at a nearby field for our local food bank with his bandmates and some local radio station ball players; he's a skilled athlete and a true ball rat. He hit more than one on the sweet spot, and he ran like a tasmanian devil. I'd almost bet he plays some rec games still, from the looks of him. It's a fun way for musicians to keep in some kind of shape in between gigs.

  63. 63

    I have been privelidged enough to preview the song that Lady GG and Michael co wrote together and I can guarantee you 100% that you wont be dissappointed.
    On the new album, (due out on Sept 21st) Michael is collaborating with some new and fresh artists including Ne-Yo and Lady GG.
    All of you who are slamming Michael Bolton, just ask yourself this, which other singer do you know who has a 4 octave range?
    A singer who has sold more than 53 million records, won multiple Grammy trophies for Best Male Vocalist and countless other honors, earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and sold out arenas worldwide?
    Not many huh?
    So quite your moaning, open your ears and get listening to an artist who is without doubt, one of the most talented, flexible and adaptable artists of our time. You wont be dissappointed……….I promise!

  64. 64

    Your hero is a big lady douche.

    Re: pookspoons – High five on that. With his range and unique Stewart-esque vocal quality, he remains a stylized standout. (WFV girl of summer sez.) He reworked some cover tunes in some grand ways, and others thought so too, and thus supported his work. It would be terrific to see him do a Pheonix again. Props from here.

  66. 66

    Re: Oldhag!!…. – Fuck yourself, people must like her if she can sell 30 million records and write with Michael Bolton.

  67. 67

    I think it just says FUCK YOU to everyone that wont hop off her ass about her being untalented.

    && I had the biggest crush on Michael Bolton in the 80's

  68. 68

    Why is it hard to believe he doesn't know her? I agree with JanetCanGetIt Grace Jones did this way long ago and does it way better than Lady Gaga. Not to take away from her Gaga is talented. Grace's dressing was more an expression and an extension of who she truly is - Gaga's is more so for attention only. Can't hate her marketing stance. Michael Bolton might not be everyone's cup of high tea but he definitely is earned his position in music ROYALTY.

    Re: @v@ – Not really. He was tiny and I was running top speed. He was casually walking away with a manager. I was 10 feet past him before I came to a stop. We both got the wind knocked out of us, I turned around to see him clutching his stomach with the wind knocked out of him, and I clutched my own stomach and ran the other way without saying anything.

    All I can say is this - I hope that all you males commenting on Michael Bolton look as sexy and fit as he does at his age! Jealousy is a funny emotion - perhaps you secretly wish that you had had the chance to meet and record with Lady GaGa - hard luck you losers, he'll win over you every time!!! Bet you can't even sing let alone write a song - so I suppose when his album is No.1 you will look in the mirror and realise that you have a long long way to go to even begin to look as good as him, let alone try and sing like him!
