Lady Gaga Recording New Music with Nile Rodgers?
After scoring a No. 1 album full of Tony Bennett duets, has Lady Gaga moved on to recording with another famous over-60 male artist? Gaga fan account @Gagadaily posted a photo of the pop star sitting at a piano with Nile Rodgers, he of Chic and “Get Lucky” fame.

The photo also includes songwriting legend Diane Warren, who penned unstoppable 90’s ballads like LeAnn Rimes’ “How Do I Live” and Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me.” A rep for Lady Gaga did not respond to request for comment, but the snapshot is an encouraging sign that Gaga is indeed working on new tunes.
Rodgers’ career was recently revived when the disco guitarist was featured on a handful of tracks on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories album, including the Top 5 hit “Get Lucky.” Rodgers performed “Get Lucky” on the Grammy Awards earlier this year with Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder, and in July, he played alongside Prince at the 2014 Essence Festival.
In other Gaga news, the ARTPOP star caught Mariah Carey’s performance at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Sunday night. “This lady is so kind, such a star, and sounding legendary tonight at Beacon Theatre,” Gaga wrote in an Instagram caption.
