Lady Gaga, The Simpsons and a lesbian kiss

BY NOREEN FAGAN – That
is one episode I do not intend to miss. Entertainment Weekly

scooped the news that Lady Gaga will play herself in a Simpsons episode
called “Lisa Goes Gaga."

The singer and gay rights campaigner descends on Springfield after learning about the townspeople’s low self-esteem. A true
star, she takes little Lisa under her wing and tries to empower her through song.

The real Lady Gaga was not so gung-ho about Springfield; she admitted to EW that her visit to Simpsons headquarters was nerve-wracking.

“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 humour,” she said.
“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 also said that her dad would probably do 80 back-flips
when the episode came out. That just makes me smile. So does the thought of an
animated Gaga powering through the little town, changing costumes and getting
down and dirty with Marge.

Oh yes. That is going to be the kiss of the year — Lady Gaga
and Marge. The problem? We have a bit of a wait: “Lisa Goes Gaga” doesn’t air until spring 2012.
