London: Singer Lady Gaga has been compared to renowned painter Picasso by singer Tony Bennett.

Bennett recently recorded a track with Gaga, 25, for his "Duets II" album.

"She came in so prepared and so knowledgeable about what to do. She`s as good as Ella Fitzgerald or anybody you want to come up with," quoted the 85-year-old as saying.

"And that`s without her dancing and her philosophies about breaking myths that are incorrect and social situations. She`s very strong.

"I know it sounds way out, but she could become America`s Picasso if they leave her alone and let her just do what she has to do. She is very, very talented," he added.
