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.
Anybody else a little concerned about the cover art for a Bennett-Gaga album called “Cheek to Cheek”?
The Visible Mouse: In order to study their anatomy, scientists are skinning dead mice and treating them with chemicals to make them transparent. The see-through mice resemble rodent-shaped blocks of gelatin.
The scientists said they got the idea from a Jell-O salad at their last potluck.
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.”
