It could be argued that Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are the last pairing one might think would end up naked in a room together. Well, Tony kept his clothes on, but Gaga stripped down while Bennett whipped out his charcoal.

After recording a duet together of ‘The Lady Is a Tramp,’ the veteran singer, in his mid 80′s, sketched the pop star. Now, that drawing will be auctioned off and proceeds will be split between their charities. For Gaga, her Born This Way foundation and for Bennett, Exploring the Arts.

Gaga said about the experience, “I walked in and said, ‘Well Tony here we are,’ and I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy and thought, ‘It’s Tony Bennett, why am I naked?’”

    It will probably fetch more than if they had done the opposite and let Lady G draw Mr. Bennett.
