Lady Gaga Teams Up with The Muppets for ABC Holiday Special


Lady Gaga & Kermit at the VMAs


Thanksgiving. A time for family. A time for friends. A time for laughter. A time for...Lady Gaga?

The always controversial pop diva is preparing to team up with The Muppets to bring a little holiday cheer to ABC, most likely while wearing something that exposes her rear end. No word on what lacy garments the puppets will be donning for the occasion. Gaga will perform songs from her upcoming 'Artpop' album, alongside comedy sketches featuring her, The Muppets, and other celebrity guests. The invitees include music legend Elton John, red-hot actor of the moment Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 'Veronica Mars' star Kristen Bell, and uh, RuPaul. That last name seems a bit out of place, until you remember that Lady Gaga is involved.

While a Gaga/Muppets alliance seems a bit far-fetched on the surface, the singer is a big Muppets fan, and once famously wore a dress made entirely of stuffed Kermit dolls. She also once brought the world's most famous frog as her date to the Video Music Awards, and used pieces designed by Jim Henson's Creature Shop on her 'Monster Ball' tour. To finalize their union, Gaga and The Muppets will be performing a duet of her hit single 'Applause.' I wonder when Miss Piggy plans on attacking Gaga for stealing her husband?

'Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular' airs Thanksgiving night, Nov. 28 at 9:30/8:30c.

Right you are Lady Loora, it should have said upcoming album, not recent. I made the change, thanks.

"Gaga will perform songs from her recent 'Artpop' album" ... recent ? Do you live in the future ? ;-) ARTPOP isn't even out yet (due in like 3 weeks or so I believe). Only one or two singles were released so far iirc. Not that it matters much, tho. Maybe you confused ARTPOP with Perry's Prism ? Which just came out or will be out any day now ? Not sure about the exact dates.

I liked Gaga's Thanksgiving special from last year, so, yeah, I do sort of associate her with T-Day! :-)

Hard to believe that the Muppets would be teaming up with Gaga for *anything*, given the controversy when Katy Perry appeared on their show.
