Are you an extremely wealthy person with terrible taste and a penchant for celebrity memorabilia? Were you devastated by the news that Michael Jackson’s hair is no longer for sale? Before you spend that hair money on something stupid like life insurance or medicine for your kids, take a look at this charcoal portrait of Lady Gaga, sketched by crooner and George Bush confidant Tony Bennett–now available at an online auction.
As we reported a couple weeks ago, Bennett sketched the portrait during a Vanity Fair photo shoot with Annie Lebowitz. “I walked in and said ‘Well Tony, here we are,’” Lady Gaga recalls, “And I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy and thought ‘It’s Tony Bennett, why am I naked?’” (Oddly enough, the first thought most people have when meeting Bennett is: “It’s Tony Bennett, why am I wearing clothes?”)
The sketch is available on eBay Celebrity, Billboard reports, and bidding starts at $5,000. All proceeds go to Bennett’s Exploring the Arts charity and Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. You have until December 19th to enter the winning bid, and if you do, be sure to buy a frame. A nude portrait of Lady Gaga sketched by Tony Bennett would just be tacky without a frame.
