Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga Cheek to Cheek Jazz Music Album

Lady Gaga is a pop star, but the singer says recording jazz music was easier than pop.
Gaga has spent two years recording an album of jazz standards with Tony Bennett called "Cheek to Cheek," to be released on September 23.

"You know, it's funny, but jazz comes a little more comfortable for me than pop music, than R&B music," Gaga said in an interview Monday. "I've sung jazz since I was 13 years old, which is kind of like my little secret that Tony found out. So this is almost easier for me than anything else."

Gaga made the comments with Bennett by her side ahead of the duo's taped performance at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.

The 28-year-old and 87-year-old Bennett first collaborated on his Grammy-winning, platinum-selling 2011 album, "Duets II." Bennett said fans will be impressed with Gaga's vocal performance on the upcoming album.

"They're going to say we had no idea she sings that well," he said.

"And they're gonna say they had no idea that Tony dressed so crazy," Gaga added, as Bennett smiled.

"When you come out in your meat dress Tony, nobody is going to know what's going on."

"Cheek to Cheek" is Gaga's first release since last year's "Artpop." Bennett released a collaborative album with Latin singers in 2012 called "Viva Duets."

The duo performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival earlier this month and surprised high school students at Bennett's Frank Sinatra School of Arts in Queens last month.

Gaga, who is currently on her "Artrave: The Artpop Ball" tour, says she is "actually happier than I've ever been."

"There's 60 years between us, and when we sing, there's no distance," she added about working with Bennett.

At-Home Hair Color: Hit the Bottle

If you've sprouted a few grays wondering what color you should dye your hair, it's no wonder. With dozens of choices and brands, finding your best hair hue can be exasperating. One common land mine: "Many women choose hair color that doesn't complement their skin tone," says Michael Canale, a colorist in Los Angeles. And because your hair is right next to your face, the wrong hue can make skin look drab and older. Not acceptable! Follow these easy expert tips and you'll have it made in the shade. (A word to the wise: Don't attempt to go more than two shades lighter or darker at home; drastic changes require the skills of a pro!)

Step 1: Figure out your commitment level.
You can immediately narrow the field by deciding how different you want your hair to look—and how much time (and cash!) you're willing to devote to color maintenance.

For a can't-be-missed change: Try a permanent color when you want to go up to two shades lighter or darker, says Clairol color director and New York City salon owner Marie Robinson. These formulas are also your best bet if you have lots of dye-resistant grays. Permanent dyes require a bit of work, though: Since they grow out instead of fading, you'll likely need to do monthly touch-ups to conceal root regrowth.

For a subtle pick-me-up and extra shine: Opt for a demi-permanent formula. These shades fade slightly each time you shampoo and completely wash out in about 28 shampoos, leaving no roots. Experts say this type is a great choice for those looking to minimize damage or to simply enhance their natural color (for example, if brassiness is peeking through your brown strands, a demi will cover it up). One caveat: These formulas really only work for those wanting to go darker, says Robinson. Because they don't contain ammonia, they won't lighten your current hue. And you'll have to reapply it monthly to maintain the look.

For a noticeable enhancement with few strings: Try highlights. They're spread out over your head, so they grow out without showing a distinct line of demarcation at the roots. "Highlights are great for those who want to color once every three months," says New York City salon owner Rita Hazan. They require less commitment and enhance your natural color, she adds. One drawback: At-home kits don't work well on very dark hair, which requires a higher level of lightening, says Johnathan Gale, a colorist in Los Angeles. For you, a salon trip is in order.

Step 2: Determine your skin tone.
To find the shade that will bring out the best in your complexion, you need to know your undertones. How to uncover them:

If you're going for allover color: Put on a white shirt, remove all traces of makeup, and drape a white towel over your hair. Stand in front of a well-lit mirror and take a good look. If your face looks pink or red, you've got cool undertones. See peach, olive, or gold? You're warm. If obvious colors aren't glaring back at you, or if you have hints of both, you're neutral.

If you're doing highlights only: Peek at the flecks in your eyes to determine the streak hue that'll draw attention to them, says Canale. If yours have hints of gold or amber, they're warm. If you see blue, silver, or gray, or if you have brown eyes with no flecks at all, they're cool. Experts say that while eyes alone can guide your streaks, your skin should always dictate your overall color (a helpful tip for those with warm eyes and cool skin…or vice versa!).

Step 3: Start shopping!
In the store, opt for colors close to what nature gave you, then look for certain keywords for a face-flattering match.

For cool skin tones: Aim for ash or neutral shades (you'll see the letter A or N on the box). These lack red or gold tones and counteract pinkness in your skin, says Robinson. Blondes should look for color descriptions like champagne or beige; brunettes can hunt for chocolate or espresso hues. Dying to go red? Steer clear of copper or cherry descriptions and go for a medium auburn: This brownish red will give contrast to rosy skin, not match it. Try L'Oreal Paris Sublime Mousse by Healthy Look in Spicy Auburn Brown ($10, at drugstores).

For warm skin tones: Give your complexion a healthy, natural flush by adding golden or reddish tones to your hair (look for G or R), advises Hazan. Blonde shades in this color family include honey, strawberry, and copper; brunettes should try golden brown, chestnut, or mahogany. Try John Frieda Precision Foam Color in Deep Cherry Brown ($13, at Target).

For neutral skin tones: Middle-of-the-road skin gives you more leeway to be a color chameleon, and you can choose a shade based on preference, says Hazan. (Just take some inspiration from famous neutral girls Drew Barrymore and Leighton Meester!) Go for a look that best fits your personality and upkeep level.

Finding your highlight hue: If your eyes are warm, weave in a similar tone like butterscotch, toffee, or copper to make your peepers pop. Platinum and auburn shades flatter cool eyes. Look for a permanent formula like Couture Color Luxeblend Ammonia-Free Creme Hair Colour ; the brush inside helps you target specific areas (rather than your whole head) for a natural, sun-kissed effect.
