But we don't want to wait the entire weekend! GAH!
Check out the just-released preview of the music video for Tony Bennett's duet with Lady GaGa, The Lady Is a Tramp, off of his latest album, Duets II (above), which will be premiering in full this coming Monday!
We had forgotten how much we LOVED the seafoam green hair on her!
Tony Bennett is the oldest artist to ever grace the Hot 100 charts.
He and Amy Winehouse bow at #87 with Body and Soul.
He's also taking the crown for longest span. He holds an impressive 53 year, 2 month existence on the charts! Nice!

He got right on that apology, didn't he?
Earlier today, we mentioned that Tony Bennett appeared on the Howard Stern Show earlier this week to discuss his new album Duets II…but then he felt the need to tell the world that he blames the United States for the 9/11 attacks.
We were NOT impressed, and clearly plenty of others felt the same way, because Tony has issued an apology for his insensitive, very poorly timed comments:
We hope your publicist has got their game face on, Tony! Some serious damage control is imminent after these comments.
Yesterday, Tony Bennett appeared on the Howard Stern Show to discuss his new album Duets II, but the conversation ended up heading into a more controversial direction.
Here's what Tony had to say about 9/11, when the subject of the World Trade Center attacks came up:
But nope! He insists the no-show is due to a prior commitment to host Tony Bennett's 85th Birthday Gala in New York City. We knew about the gala, but like everyone else, we still wondered a bit.
However, despite claims that the birthday bash was an excuse, the 30 Rock
John Mayer revealed yesterday that due to a throat condition, he's been forced to cancel not only his upcoming singing engagements, but also delay the release of his new album, Born and Raised!
After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma.
I’m bummed to have to bow out of both the iheartradio Music Festival in Las Vegas and an appearance with Tony Bennett in Los Angeles. I know there were people depending on me to be there and I’m sorry that I can’t be on those stages.
‘Born and Raised’ is complete as far as music recording, song selection, and in some cases mixing, but because of this condition I couldn’t finish singing on several of the tracks. This means the record will be released next year instead of this fall or winter.
This is a temporary setback, though I’m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I’ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear. Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village.
I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon. Until then take good care.
These things do happen, sometimes, though, and we're sure your voice will be much better off in the long run if you take the time now to take care of yourself!
