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.
It would be more entertaining!!!!!!!!
They are essentially the same. both toilet humor. its just family guy is newer and people generally like the next big thing. Id still rather watch the simpsons tho
funny that people who watch family guy call the simpsons stupid.
Can't wait to see it.
I wonder if Gaga will be jumping a shark for them while she's on there - or if Homer will get the honor.
Does anyone still watch the Simpsons? Totally agree the show has been stupid and irrelevant for quite some time.
Well if the show hadn't already jumped the shark...i think its time has come.
Or when they play with themselves. What is in there that "she" plays with ? I wonder.
It would be more fun if Lady Gaga played a classmate of Lisa or Bart, rather than herself. Guest stars usually aren't so funny when they play themselves.
The Simpsons lost their wit and hold of genius comedy in about 2000 or 2001. The last decade has been crap filled with predictable and boring plots and lines, and they've relied on too many celebrity guests to gain interest. It's not surprising that fans of the show are fans of this type of plot. Everyone has their own tastes, and if people can still enjoy it, great. However, I just don't see how anyone can compare the genius of the first 8 or 9 (or so) seasons with the last decade. I find it unwatchable.
love the simpsons. Hate family guy, american dad and that cleveland one.
For it’s 23rd season, Lady Gaga just hit the studio to record her lines for the upcoming episode “Lisa Goes Gaga,” which sees her trying to cheer up Lisa Simpson who’s suffering a bout of low-self-esteem. http://bit.ly/rmcaU4
No thanks. I'll watch seasons 1-10 on DVD and leave it there.
@: Frank Mondana,
Funny that I don't see it that way. I pitty your "funless" pathetic life....
yes , because yours sure doesn't, you tasteless whiner
I miss the golden seasons of the Simpsons, about Season 4 – Season 12. "Joy of Sect", "Cape Fear", "Das Bus", "Bart of Darkness", and "Marge v Monorail" are the best episodes EVER. Also, I miss Phil Hartman.
Agreed! Notice that things sort of fell apart after Phil was murdered. Sad all around. I wonder if there's a connection?
Now I have to boycott the Simpsons. Thanks lady Gaga.
Family Guy is far and away more hilarious than The Simpsons ever was. Peter is way funnier than Homer could ever be. He's also better in the sack.
Family Guy was very funny. Until Seth MacFarlane stopped coming up with enough material to fill 22 minutes. He has ruined so many gags because he runs them into the ground. It's like he's a 6 year old kid who gets a laugh with a joke then proceeds to repeat it constantly for the rest of the day.
One example was the "Bin Laden outtake" gag. It was hysterical. Then another flub. HAHAHAHHA! OMG, that's funny! Oh, he did it again, again, again again? again...
After the 4th time Bin Laden flubbed it ran out of steam. But, Seth must of laughed every time because they did it over and over and over. By the end, I was screaming "OK! WE GET IT!"
Every episode of Family Guy is the same thing. If the gag is funny, it is repeated to the point of stupidity.
Either Seth MacFarlane is doing the little kid getting his 1st laugh routine or he thinks we are just too stupid to get a joke unless we see it 50 times. Because of this, FG (and American Dad) has lost most of its wit and relies on simple gags.
Guess I am also a 6 year old kid because I still find the show hilarious. I stop in on The Simpsons and it makes me feel just sort of sad inside.
PS American Dad was NEVER funny.
Et Tu SIMPSONS??? We are overly saturated with Gaga.. Ugh!
Who cares, Simpsons hasn't been good since season 7.
Homer is always so hungry I bet Lady Boy will whip it out and he will begin chowing down.
I always thought Homer was gay.
Lucky Bart. He gets to find out the truth. She or he?
love this! lol
The only questions is how many times can the Simpson's jump the shark at this point?
The Simpsons show has been horrible for a long time and it now sounds like it's about to jump the shark. In fact, they are announcing the shark jumping before it even happens.
Y'all need to stop yelling at me. I am sitting on the toilet.
They should have Gagas character hopping around using her big rod like a pogo stick.
Simpsons? No. South Park? Definitely.
They should have known when to say enough, and that was around season 8 or 9
Will they be drawing her with or without her real life wiener?
They will not show it. But I'm sure the artists will fit in a bulge here or there.
It's offical, the Simpsons have jumped the shark!
The Simpsons jumped the shark so long ago, the shark was in black and white.
Futurama is a much funnier show by far and is made by the same creator as the Simpsons :)
Futurama is the best show on TV. the show seems so much more thought out and less slapstick. besides i didn't even know the simpsons was still on the air
Simpsons was great before they started pandering to celebrities and writing episodes to cram as many guest stars in as possible. This one already sounds forgettable.
There is nothing wrong with eating a little doo doo now and then.
Thank god for you traci.
Without you, who would tell the same 'poop' joke every single day?
Geneticists, the world over, would like a sample of your blood, so they can isolate the 'boring' gene.
I own every season of the simpsons, they start to get bad somewhere in season nine, and become unwatchable after season 14.
They pick up again around Season 20. Between 11 and 19 though... Yeccch.
Well, at least the animators won't have to stretch too far to draw her funky eyes.
Lady Gaga paid a visit to Springfield yo do a guest spot on The Simpsons. She looks fantastic channeling Ursula Andress http://bit.ly/qt0ay1
Still love the Simpsons. This show will last even after Family Guy is cancelled and forgotten.
What's "Family Guy?"
The Simpsons have neither been watchable nor relevant for at least a decade.
This...coming from a total nobody.
Yeah Pliny because your opinion is the only one that matters.
I am the law!
LOVE the Simpsons....still the best Prime Time Cartoon on TV!
It's the best SITCOM on tv, period. Just remind me how many of the current shows on network TV have lasted more than two decades.
geez... the simpsons is still on smh
Problem? I've got a solution. If you don't like it, don't watch it. No one wants to hear your whining.
Looking forward to it!
I love Gaga and I love the Simpsons, so I am pretty happy about this news! I am very interested to see what they draw for her costumes!
Gaga actually looks really beautiful in the picture on Entertainment Weekly! Wow.
Ha! I love the irony of Lisa liking a pop star who wore a meat dress (Lisa's vegetarian). I'm so going to watch this ep.
It was only a matter of time, Nicky Minaj is next if the creator isn't prejudiced. He already got the only A.A. off of the show.
