Bennett goes Gaga

This a Great! Great! album: After recording a duet with Tony Bennett in 2011 for his Grammy-winning “Duets II” album, art-pop singer and meat dress model Lady Gaga returned to the studio for a full album of duets with the 87-year-old crooner. The album of jazz standards, “Cheek to Cheek,” will be released Sept. 23.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1981, the rock music video channel MTV made its debut, playing the Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star.”

The band would go decades before recording another hit, which ironically never played on MTV, “Reality Shows Killed the Music Video Star.”
