Gaga, Can You Hear Me?

Via the Mirror:

Lady Gaga might be the grande dame of the divas now, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t recognise those who came before. She’s posted a dazzling picture on Instagram of her with Barbra Streisand and it’s like looking at two generations of amazing women with kick-ass attitude and killer voices. The photo shows Barbra letting her hair down in a black outfit with her signature prominent nose in perfect profile. Behind her, with her arms thrown around Babs’ shoulders, Gaga is striking the same pose, her own chin tilted up and nose in the air. Gaga has captioned the image: “Barbra and me. What a completely amazing woman. #Funnygirls”, and it’s got 120,000 likes just three hours after it was posted. It makes sense that Lady Gaga would be in thrall to the 73-year-old singer. As well as offering the sort of full-blooded theatrical performance Gaga has committed to record herself with Tony Bennett, Barbra is a cultural legend like no other.
