Surely this was only a matter of time: Lady Gaga will guest on "The Simpsons" in the 23rd season.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the Mother Monster has recorded a guest spot for an episode called "Lisa Goes Gaga." The pop superstar ventures to Springfield in the episode after she finds out that it's full of self-esteem, and ends up giving Lisa a pep talk that includes a song (of course) and a flash mob.
"I make music, and 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 had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor," she told EW of the experience, which she called "a little nerve-wracking."
"That's what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines," she said.
We'll have to wait a little while to see how she did, as "Lisa Goes Gaga" won't air until the spring of 2012.
The 23rd season of "The Simpsons" begins on September 25.
