Friday Night Video

In a world that manages to give us Ke$ha, it's good to know that the last, true living legend of music is still going strong at 83. I liked Tony Bennett long before I started working at The Met, where I've had the pleasure of meeting him several times (and will do so once again in just a few hours), and I liked him long before he managed to hook the MTV generation in the 90's. He epitomizes smooth without even a hint of arrogance and pretentiousness. His voice is singular, his legacy unquestioned. Tony is the man. And you know what? He'd probably do a duet with Ke$ha, because that's just how he rolls.

p.s. Ke$ha is kind of awesome.
