Michael Bolton + Lady Gaga = Game Over Man!
For those of us growing up in the '80s, the end of mankind always manifested itself in the form of nuclear apocalypse or perhaps even a biblical type plague. Never could we have imagined -- or wanted to conceive -- that it'd come this way:
Soft FM '80s king Michael Bolton is teaming up with current flavor of the day Lady Gaga for a ballad called Murder My Heart. (Well, at least the title makes sense.)
"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," Bolton told London's Metro newspaper. "They said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me."
The Bolton-Gaga tune is planned for his upcoming album, One World Love, due later in September.
This wouldn't be Lady Gaga's first venture with an '80s icon. Gaga appeared with Pet Shop Boys, warbling Dustry Springfield's lines during What Have I Done To Deserve This for a live performance earlier this year at the Brit Awards. (God, did I just call Bolton an icon?)
Well, at least Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite -- so she's got that going for her. Which is nice.
