Lady Gaga Set for Muppets Holiday Special
Lookout Miss Piggy! Lady Gaga loves Kermit the Frog. She once wore a dress made out of plush toy versions of Miss Piggy’s boyfriend!
Ma Monster loves the Muppet crew so much that she is teaming up with them for a holiday TV special that has already been shot in Los Angeles.
‘Lady Gaga & the Muppets Holiday Spectacular’ will air on Thanksgiving night, which is Nov. 28, at 9:30PM. It’ll run for 90-minutes.
“I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year,” Lady Gaga said, according to ABC News. “I knew it just wouldn’t be a complete night of laughter and memories without the Muppets!”
Ma Monster will perform ‘Applause’ with several of the Muppets and she’ll even duet with Kermit. Her pal Sir Elton John will appear, as will actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the fabulous RuPaul and Kristen Bell, the latter of whom will star in a Gaga x the Muppets sketch.
“What an incredible opportunity!” Kermit gushed. “We have a long history with Ms. Gaga, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her. We won’t even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe — again.”
He called her Ms. Gaga and he didn’t forget about her Kermit dress!
Gaga was supposed to make her film debut in the most recent ‘The Muppets’ film back in 2011. Her cameo landed on the cutting room floor due the film being overly long. That’s why her scene was axed. Boo! Hiss!
Who cares about that, though! Ma Monster will be taking over the small screen with Kermit and co.
It’ll be the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational and Gagatational show of the holiday season.
