File this under weirdest music news of the day: Lady Gaga and Michael Bolton are collaborating on some new songs together. The 56-year-old Bolton had never heard of Gaga until she approached him to work together and now they will be co-writing songs for his latest album. He said, ” 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.” Bolton was impressed with Gaga’s artistry, saying she reminded him of a young Madonna. We can’t wait to hear what this collaboration sounds like. Can we expect the “Time, Love and Poker Face” world tour?
Bolton has never been someone whose music appealed to us, but perhaps Lady Gaga will breathe some much needed life (and Spandex and lucite and underpants) into the album. And we know that Bolton has had a haircut since 1990, but we had to post a photo of him in his heyday with that hair because it’s just too good not to show off.
