According to reports, eccentric singer Lady GaGa is set to appear on The Simpsons. The Born this Way hitmaker will voice an animated version of herself in the popular cartoon comedy series.
Her episode, airing next spring and entitled ‘Lisa Goes Gaga’, will feature her arriving in Springfield and unsuccessfully trying to cheer up Lisa Simpson.
“This is extraordinary! I’m stunned that she has time in her schedule that she’s coming to our studio to record,” said Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa. “She’s playing herself, and [the writers] describe her as the happiest, most optimistic person in the world. She comes to Springfield to try to cheer up Lisa, but she can’t.”
The singer confessed that appearing on the show is one of the “coolest” things she has ever done and hopes she has done an honest job. “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,” 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. I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.”
