Lady Gaga, the Queen of Pop, is planned to have a guest appearance on an episode of the hit cartoon series “The Simpsons.”
The voice actress who plays Lisa Simpson, Yeardly Smith, had quite a bit to say regarding Gaga’s new animated role: “This is extraordinary! I’m stunned that she has time in her schedule that she’s coming to our studio to record,” she said.
In this episode, Gaga comes to Springfield to make Lisa feel better about herself. The singer also reveals that she ends up kissing Marge. “I play a little bit of a slut,” jokes Gaga. “The apple doesn’t fall far from my artistic tree.”
A version of Gaga has been on The Simpsons one time before, on an episode in which the pop star appears as Elton John’s date for the Golden Globes. However, Gaga did not voice herself at that time.
“I make music, but 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,” Gaga said in regards to her appearance on the show. “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.”
“I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done,” Gaga also said. “My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.”
The episode, entitled “Lisa Goes Gaga, “will air in Spring 2012, during the show’s upcoming season of “The Simpsons.”
The twenty-third season premiere of “The Simpsons” debuts September 25 at 8 p.m.
