Lady Gaga Covers Kanye West's "Heartless" Live in Toronto

June 22, 2009 9:24 AM ET

Kanye West went on The View earlier this month and announced he'd be going on tour with Lady Gaga, praising the fashion-forward "Poker Face" singer as "not an opening act." Now Gaga has returned the favor: she took a seat at her custom-designed Pyrex piano and started to play "Heartless" in Toronto Friday night. "So did you hear about the Kanye tour?" she asked during a pause. When the cheers died down, she added, "I would say Kanye is one of the most talented and intuitive people I've known in a long time." Watch the clip, above, and get maximum Gaga here.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
