Let's face it, Lady Gaga is HUGE. Her music is widely popular, and her likeness is easily marketable and profitable. She is a power house in the music industry, and everyone knows who she is. She is known for her outlandish acts and wardrobe, but also uses that notoriety to push a message that it's OK to be different. A message like that resonates well with all, especially a younger generation that has been hit hard with bully epidemic. So with a personality that encompasses so much, it should come as no surprise that Lady Gaga will be a guest on "The Simpsons".
For those you living under a rock for the last 25 years, The Simpsons is an animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for FOX. The series is a parody of a middle class American lifestyle as animated through family of the same name, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television and many aspects of the human condition. The Simpsons is the longest-running American sitcom, and the longest-running American animated program. The Simpsons has won dozens of awards since it debuted as a series, including 27 Primetime Emmy Awards, 30 Annie Awards and a Peabody Award. So as you can see, being a part of this show is an honor.
Gaga is set to appear in this season's finale of the Simpsons, airing Sunday, May 20th. In typical Gaga fashion, she will have 18 outfit changes in the show, as well as a song a song that teaches Lisa that individuality beats conformity. I feel this is a great way to end this season, and I cannot wait to see how this turns out. Who knows, maybe she will make it into the annual Simpsons promotional calendar?
