A very Gaga Christmas

I know it’s still August, but I can tell you that Santa Claus’ workshop is going to have some stiff competition this holiday season.

Lady Gaga will be creating her own workshop campaign for the iconic New York City department store, Barneys.

The retailer has given Gaga an entire floor to create her workshop, as well as the famous store windows to show her display. There will also be a collection of Gaga's Workshop gift items that will raise money for a charity of her choice.

Today, Barneys released a sneak peek at what to expect in the coming months. It is a cartoon image of a very festive Gaga with blue hair and a sparkly red jumpsuit! The image will be used on shopping bags and the company’s website.

Checking out the holiday windows at Barneys is an annual tradition here in New York City. So I love that Gaga will be involved this year. I’m also loving the fact that this will raise money for charity.

What do you think about a Gaga Christmas workshop? Tell me below.

Also tonight, our exclusive with the Jacksons! "Showbiz Tonight" goes one-on-one with Michael Jackson’s mom Katherine. You do not want to miss what Katherine tells us about the star-studded tribute to her late son.

See that and more on "Showbiz Tonight," exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

    And when you're opening gifts with your family on Christmas Eve, and you hand out the Lady Gaga workshop gift items, watch the mood in the room suddenly become awkward and uncomfortable.

    I usually do not comment... Honestly I could not care one way or another... Although I do think its great that the proceeds will be going to charity kudos to everyone involved... I am how ever commenting to all of the so called Christians that have left comments... May I remind you over and over the bible(regardless of version) speaks over and over of not judging. Most of the comments I read were very judgmental.. maybe I misunderstood and God himself is posting on this page under a different name.. that's it I am just tired of hypocrites. Let Ye without sin cast the first stone.... And for those ready to pounce on me, I do get the irony of my post.. I guess you could look at my post as less of a judgment and more of a reprimand if it makes you feel better...

    I must know, will she include her "very original" red outfit that she wore but Debbie Harry actually wore back in the 80's? Or how about Bette Midler's mermaid suit? She could donate her meat dress to feed the kids in Somalia, I think that would be more epic.

    Jesus was born in the summer. The 'Christmas' season was started to counteract the pagan winter solstice, not because it was near Jesus' birthday.

    • Well...

      She is incredible songwriter, singer, and performer... the likes of which we haven't seen since Madonna and MJ. Her new album is amazing from start to finish and my favorite of the year thus far. She's lost favor in the media as they've decided the hype train for her is now over and time to get her on the decline... no matter, she's an absolute superstar and the best thing to come along in pop music for two decades or so.

      And I'n not a sheep... I'm just listening. Amazing amazing stuff.

    Christmas? Gaga? Barney's? At least we can be sure no matter what anyone thinks. None of this has anything at all to do with Jesus Christ. Get real even demon worshipors and godless people can raise money for charoities. These types most often call themselves Christians also. Gaga is a side show freak and Barney's has become the big tent. Barney's what a disgrace.

      Epie, Gaga has a lot of religious imagery, but it is hardly satanic. She explores Christian imagery because she IS Christian. She grew up going to a Catholic school, it only makes sense that it would influence her. To quote her new single, You and I, "the only men I'm gonna serve my whole life: my daddy, and Nebraksa, and Jesus Christ."

    • Well...

      Sorry @xjdavid to sound condescending, but nothing drives me crazier than those who are devoutly religious and unable to let the sacred bible or anything to do with religion be used as a metaphor. Just because Gaga uses the story of Judas and Jesus as a parallel to love story doesn't make her satanic... it's poetic. But the church has done a great job by refusing to let ANYTHING be questioned, and therefore keeps all their little followers in line. Maybe you've heard it from blowhard Bill Donahue of the Catholic League, or whomever is lazy and wants everyone running in fear... but try to think for yourself.
