Lady Gaga recently brought her once-in-a-lifetime co-headlining tour with Tony Bennett to a close (we were on hand for a recent show in Atlantic City and can confirm it was a sheer delight).
Gaga shared a bittersweet Instagram shot about the tour wrap, saying she was "so sad" and would remember the experience "as long as I love. And maybe longer."

One upside of the tour's end, however, is that the iconoclastic pop star is starting to work on a new studio album.
In a simple Instagram selfie, Gaga wrote, "LG5 time." After ARTPOP and Cheek to Cheek, Gaga's next will be her fifth album.
After the mixed response to 2013's ARTPOP, it will be interesting to see what Gaga comes up with for her next (presumably pop-leaning) album -- and if her vocal jazz foray will impact her sound on the forthcoming LP.
As with all things Gaga, it's hard to predict the future -- but that's just part of what makes being a Little Monster so interesting.
