Lady Gaga dressed in drag for her new video "You and I." She's opening this years VMA's. She refers to her fans as "monsters" and its no surprise she will wear anything from Kermit the frog stuffed toys to diamond encrusted lobsters headdresses. But hands down, her coolest gig to date is appearing on The Simpsons.
Yep, Gaga is gonna get the animated treatment in a guest appearance on The Simpson's playing herself. She will appear in an episode called "Lisa Goes Gaga."
This isn't the first time Gaga has appeared on a FOX TV show. She must have a development deal with Fox, because she guest judged this season on dance show, "So You Think You Can Dance," two episodes of Glee have been entirely dedicated to Lady Gaga, and now she's going to appear on The Simpsons.
The summary of the Gaga-Simpson is that Gaga goes to Springfield to cheer up Lisa and somehow ends up kissing Lisa's mom, Marge. How and why does that even happen? Actually, Gaga is probably seduced by Marge's blue beehive haircut. "Marge! That blue hair! You were born this way baby! Let's gay make-out!"
Gaga talks about her character, "I play a little but of a slut. The apple doesn't fall far from my artistic tree." Well, If the sluty shoe fits...
"I would say this is one of the coolest things I've ever done," says Gaga. She says her parents will really appreciate this new gig. "My dads probably going to do 80 back flips when the episode come out." What? Mr. and Mrs. Gaga weren't impressed when she gave birth to herself in the "Born This Way" video?
Simpsons creator Matt Groening says The Simpsons always strives to have pop culture icons appear on the show. Stephen Hawking, Glenn Close, Betty White, Danny DeVito, Larry King, Liz Taylor, Regis Philbin, Rupert Murdoch, Simon Cowell, and Weird Al Yankovic are just a few of the names of some of the zany and huge cultural icons that have appeared on the show over the years.
"Since the very beginning, I've always wanted to have on the most iconic personalities of our time, and she's it. It's very hard to top reality with her, but I'm sure we'll come up with something that is going to be as improbable as her usual wardrobe."
Gaga said she was nervous while recording the show, "I make music, but I don't do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny...I was trying to focus on not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines." Gaga being sincere? I would pay good money to see what that looks like.
"Lisa Goes Gaga" airs in spring 2012 as part of the shows 23rd season.
