    Lady Gaga can vividly recall the moment that Tony Bennett said her name for the first time in "a long time." The songstress first collaborated with the crooner in 2014 for her jazz album "Cheek to Cheek." They reunited this summer for a new album titled "Love For Sale," as well as his last concert at Radio City Music Hall before retiring per doctors’ orders. During an appearance on "60 Minutes," Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, detailed how the 95-year-old exclaimed "Woah, Lady Gaga! I like that!" after she said "Hey, Tony!" during their final duets on stage. "That’s the first time that Tony said my name in a long time," the 35-year-old explained. "I had to keep it together, because we had a sold-out show, and I had a job to do. But I’ll tell you when I walked out on that stage, and he said, ‘It’s Lady Gaga,’ my friend saw me. And it was very special." LADY GAGA AND TONY BENNETT TO PERFORM 'ONE LAST TIME' TOGETHER IN NEW YORK CITY Lady Gaga (R)...

    A protester who claimed to have been hit by a car on Long Island was charged Wednesday with filing a false report, police said. Keith Harrison was at the Black Lives Matter protest in Huntington Station Monday around 6:45 p.m. when a man struck one of the marchers with his SUV, according to Suffolk County Police. Harrison, 56, allegedly filed a police report stating that he’d also been hit — but an investigation proved otherwise, cops said. Police have said that another man was injured when Anthony Cambareri allegedly plowed into the group of about 20 marchers. Jeremiah Bennett, 26, bounced off the hood of the vehicle and sustained damages to his wrist, arm and back, the Long Island Herald reported Wednesday. “This man tried to kill people with his car,” Bennett wrote on Facebook, according to the paper. Another protester posted a video of cops catching up with Cambareri after the crash, in which he can be heard telling them: “This man hit one of our protesters with his car.” Cambareri, 36, was charged with third-degree assault and...
    LONDON (Reuters) - Neomi Bennett, a 47-year-old British nurse, said she had chosen this moment to go public about her arrest last year because she felt it was now possible to raise complaints about the treatment of Black people that were previously brushed aside. "Prior to this, if I ever mentioned the problems, the struggles of being a Black person, you would immediately be shut down and told you've got a chip on your shoulder," she told Reuters in an interview. Amid global protests against racism and police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd in the United States, Britain has been grappling with its own record of discrimination against Black people. Bennett, who in April 2019 was pulled from her car, arrested and kept in a cell for 18 hours, says she believes she was treated unfairly and aggressively during what she said was a "petrifying" late-night encounter with police because she is Black. London's Metropolitan Police deny mistreating her and say she was arrested for refusing to cooperate with an officer's reasonable instructions. At various points during...
    Washington (CNN)Madison Cawthorn scored a stunning political upset on Tuesday when CNN projected he would win the North Carolina Republican congressional primary to fill the seat vacated by President Donald Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows. The 24-year-old political newcomer, a staunch conservative who supports Trump, handily defeated his opponent Lynda Bennett with 65.82% of the vote, compared to Bennett's 34.18%. Cawthorn's win was unexpected, with Bennett having the backing of Trump and Meadows and other high-profile endorsements from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan. Cawthorn, who was partially paralyzed in a 2014 car accident, is an owner of a real estate investment company and a motivational speaker. If elected in November, Cawthorn would become the youngest member in Congress ever -- a record currently held by New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive upstart who took office when she was 29. Cawthorn will turn 25 in August, making him eligible to serve in the House. "He's 24 years old, he's dynamic, he was able to articulate the ability to reach out to younger voters. I've...
    By GARY D. ROBERTSON, Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — After nearly dying in a car crash six years ago, western North Carolina congressional candidate Madison Cawthorn already has learned many life lessons by age 24. “There is no time to wait,” Cawthorn said in a recent interview. “Life is precious and it can be taken away at any time.” So when Rep. Mark Meadows shocked Republican activists by announcing the day before filing ended in December that he wouldn't run, Cawthorn jumped in the race at the last minute to succeed him. Now Cawthorn's the one who's jolted the political establishment, winning the GOP nomination in a Tuesday runoff by soundly beating the candidate endorsed by both Trump and Meadows, who is now the president's chief of staff. Cawthorn, who now uses a wheelchair because he's partially paralyzed, has built a strong following rapidly with a compelling story, a Libertarian-style focus on freedom and hopes among Republicans that he can attract millennial voters. “We just have a much more compelling message that resonated with people,” he told The Associated...

    (CNN)NFL defensive end Michael Bennett isn't buying Commissioner Roger Goodell's comments last week that the league believes Black Lives Matter.In an interview with The Daily Beast, Bennett, a free agent, said Goodell's video statement was "almost like a slap in the face." "Black talent has been exploited at a high level in the NFL" for decades, Bennett said in the interview, published Friday. "He knows Black Lives Matter, because without black players, the NFL wouldn't be as lucrative as it is."The NFL commits $250 million over the next 10 years to help fight systematic racismIn his video statement, Goodell said the league should have listened earlier to players' concerns about racism. But he did not mention former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has not been offered a contract after receiving backlash for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. Bennett told the Daily Beast the NFL's actions need to match Goodell's statement. Read More"Is the intent of the NFL to really make a positive impact or is it not to be seen as if they don't...
    Finally, after four years spent treating racism as a public relations problem that could be solved with celebrity partnerships, some staged bits of solidarity, and a few extra millions, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said outright that they had failed its majority Black athletes, coaches, and team officials. “We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest,” he said in a direct -to-camera video posted to social media late Friday evening. “We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter.” All it took for the league to utter a painfully obvious truth was the broadest protest movement in U.S. history—one that spanned all 50 states and has since gone international—with scores of NFL stars taking to the streets and making their voices heard. But Michael Bennett, a star defensive end who has spent years fighting for civil rights and taking the league to task, isn’t sold on the commissioner’s sincerity. Not yet, anyway.  “[Goodell] saying that Black Lives Matter is almost like a slap in the face,” Bennett said...
    Former Education Secretary and Fox News contributor Bill Bennett told "The Story" Wednesday that he was "very disappointed" in former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis' harsh criticism of President Trump's leadership in response to protests over the death of George Floyd. "He made a big deal out of, 'I'm not going to be one of these people gets out of office, then criticizes the president,'" Bennet told host Martha MacCallum. "It's exactly what he's done." OBAMA LAYS OUT IDEAS FOR 'REAL CHANGE' FOLLOWING GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS, CRITICIZES LOOTING Mattis released a statement to The Atlantic Wednesday evening saying he was "angry and appalled" over the death of Floyd, supporting protesters and speaking out against utilizing the military to quell demonstrations. "Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try," Mattis said. "Instead he tries to divide us." "The thing that really bothered me in his statement was he said, let's not be focusing on the distraction of a few violent people. Really? Really?" Bennett said. "We now have four or five cops who...
    Former Education Secretary and Fox News contributor Bill Bennett joined Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones on "Special Report" Tuesday to discuss the urgency of restoring "law and order" and share their different approaches to moving forward as a country amid the national unrest over the death of George Floyd. "This is an insurrection," Bennett told host Bret Baier. "Let's call it what it is, and it needs to be put down." ANDY MCCARTHY: TRUMP, GOVS MUST DO THIS TO RESTORE ORDER Bennett commended President Trump's commitment to restoring law and order amid the ongoing riots and looting, urging the president's critics to "consider the alternative." "What he's saying is true and essential and, consider the alternative," said Bennett. "Suppose it he said, 'Let it rip, do whatever you want ... ' that would be impossible. So we know it is inevitable and it has to happen. The sooner the better, because the sooner it happens, the less damage will be done." Jones responded, "There has been a lot of talk about the phrase 'law and order,' and I think the reason is because there are several components of that, and we have to address them...
