Their friendship is everything.
This reads as a farewell letter and now I'm misting.Someone transcribed Gaga's thank you's from the booklet that can be seen in one of the mockups:
I wish to thank you and you only for this album. You called me once a week, for many weeks, advocating for the importance of honoring Cole Porter as one of the greatest songwriters in American history - you said we should make an entire record of his music. We then made this album together as we promised each other. We made it with your family, the Benedettos, who embraced me as family - for this I am forever grateful. Your passion, your talent, your gift have shined bright upon the world your whole life.
I am deeply grateful to have witnessed, stood next to, and sang along a glimmer of your soul - your commitment to people, to racial justice, to your family and to your friends. You are my teacher, my friend, my partner in music. I love and cherish you. Thank you for all you have shared with me, I will carry it forever and someday will do for someone what you've done for me. Whenever I'm down I remember what you always say: Straight Ahead. You remind me to keep going. I will. We all will.
Thank you Tony, your legacy is of a legend that has blessed the world for all of time.
Help! Does anyone know if a Target preorder can be cancelled? I asked a US friend to preorder the Target vinyl for me, but the HMV one is identical so I’d rather just get it here and save on postage etc. Can that be done?
Yes, they should be able to just go into the Target app, go to their purchases and hit 'cancel order'
Ohh thank you! I’ll ask him to try. Much appreciated!
Make sure he does it ASAP because I once couldn’t get something cancelled because it “processed”
