Gaga’s best day with Bennett

Lady Gaga gushed over her performance with the jazz legend.

Lady Gaga shared the “best day” of her life with Tony Bennett.

The pop star recently collaborated with the 88-year-old music legend on jazz album Cheek to Cheek.

And after the pair performed in Belgium, Gaga revealed she had reached the pinnacle of her career.

“Today is the best day of my life,” the pop star gushed on Facebook, sharing an image of her cobalt blue stage costume.

“Singing with Tony Bennett in Belgium on the eve of our Jazz album release, wearing a dress made by my best friend @brandonvmaxwell. #CheekToCheek,” she continued in the caption, posted Monday.

Tony seems to be equally in awe of his contemporary.

The Rags to Riches singer appeared alongside his 28-year-old contemporary on the cover of Parade magazine earlier this month, and shared the things he has learned from the pop star.

“Nobody has communicated with the public more than Lady Gaga. Ever,” he told the publication.

“I trust the audience, and I’m very impressed. As far as they’re concerned, she’s part of their family. The only guy who ever did that was Bing Crosby, years ago.”

Gaga also opened up during the interview, revealing one of the tracks, a cover of jazz song Lush Life, holds a very personal meaning.

“It’s heart breaking. Six months ago I didn’t even want to sing anymore…” she confessed.

“I tell Tony every day that he saved my life… I’m not going to say any names, but people get irrational when it comes to money – with how they treat you, with what they expect from you… But if you help an artist, it doesn’t give you the right, once the artist is big, to take advantage of them. I was so sad. I couldn’t sleep. I felt dead. And then I spent a lot of time with Tony. He wanted nothing but my friendship and my voice.”
