Lady Gaga - Bennett Dines With Amy Winehouse And Lady Gaga's Folks

The parents of Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse dined out with legendary crooner Tony Bennett in New York on Monday night (23Apr12).
The singer invited Cynthia and Joe Germanotta and Mitch Winehouse to dinner after a screening of the documentary The Zen of Bennett - to thank them for parenting the two extraordinary talents, who helped propel his last album Duets II to the top of the charts.
Winehouse agreed with Bennett when he told him, "Amy was a different kettle of fish" from Gaga, admitting his late daughter wasn't a driven individual like the Poker Face hitmaker.
The Brit tells the New York Daily News, "Every now and then, a light would come on in her head, and she would say, 'You know what dad, I've got to write an album.' And she would sit down and, in two weeks straight, there would be an album. In that way, she was a genius, but she certainly wasn't a genius in terms of being driven."
