Bennett, who's been plotting a second album with Lady Gaga, has an additional pop-leaning duet partner in his sights: Queen Bey. And he has her firmly planted there. Has for awhile, actually. What I'm trying to say is that Tony Bennett is in love with Beyonce, probably.

Yesterday (August 3), Bennett told Today that he'd love to work with Beyonce because she's terrific.

"I like that Beyonce, she's terrific," he confirmed.

Guess what happened the same day? Bennett told People he'd like to do something with Beyonce.

"I like Beyonce so I'd like to do something with her," he said. "I think we're going to do that because I'm doing a major special for NBC about three months from now. She's a wonderful performer and a great person."

Please don't treat this as novelty, though!! Back in May, Bennett told a group of people at the The Power Of Love Gala at MGM Grand Garden Arena that he would love to do a duet with Beyonce, according to The Mirror

"I would love to do a duet with Beyonce," he said.

Tony Bennett has a crush on Beyonce, and I hope Lady Gaga doesn't feel slighted in light of all of this, but who can really control these types of things?
