It’s not even Halloween yet plus I haven’t even gotten around to sewing my Toad costume (Toad from Super Mario, not Toad from X-Men or actual toads) but I’m willing to overlook the timeliness of this post because it involves the Muppets! And also Lady Gaga, but mostly the Muppets! Anyway, according to ABC News, Gaga is teaming up with the Muppets for a holiday special (set to air on Thanksgiving), which if you’ve never seen The Muppet Christmas Carol, is a good thing.
The “Applause” singer will appear on a 90-minute special with the Muppets, her second one, ABC announced today. “Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular” will air on Nov. 28 (Thanksgiving) from 9:30-11 p.m. ET.
Not only will Gaga perform songs from her new album (she’ll sing “Applause” with several of the Muppets and have a duet with Kermit the Frog), but Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and RuPaul will have duets with Muppets as well. Adding to the star-studded program is Kristen Bell, who will star in a sketch alongside Gaga and the Muppets.
“What an incredible opportunity!” Kermit the Frog 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.”
Sure, it all sounds good, but I feel like this will all head south the moment they see her wardrobe.
Gaga: All right, I’m ready.
Miss Piggy: What in c*ck-sucking hell are you wearing?
Gaga: It’s my Kermit dress. It’s made of tons of torn-up Kermit puppets.
Miss Piggy: WHY WOULD YOU WEAR THAT?
Gaga: … art?
Miss Piggy: F*CK YOUR ART YOU MISERABLE HACK! STOP WEARING MY MAN’S SKIN AS A DRESS!
Gaga: Fine, I’ll throw on the meat dress.
Miss Piggy: Oh neat, what’s it made out of?
Gaga: Mostly ham.
Miss Piggy: YOU BITCH I’LL KILL YOU! I SWEAR I’LL KILL YOU!
