Lady Gaga may be accustomed to television appearances when it comes to performances, but the pop superstar will be entering the cartoon world soon enough.
After celebrating its 500th episode Sunday night, animated comedy sitcom The Simpsons revealed Lady Gaga will be starring in the upcoming season finale.
Since the very beginning, I've always wanted to have on the most iconic personalities of our time, and she's it, said creator Matt Groening, to Entertainment Weekly.
Finishing up its 23rd season, The Simpsons has become the longest-running scripted show on television. The cartoon officially debuted on Dec. 17, 1989, and is contracted to continue for the next two years.
The great thing about having Lady Gaga is that she came in a number of times and always with a different getup, Groening said to E! Online. She'd leave the room and come back in after a break with a completely new getup. It was unbelievable. The only time she ever took off her hat was when it was banging into the microphone.
The finale episode will be called Lisa Goes Gaga, in which the fashion pop icon will visit Springfield to cheer her up.
I play a little bit of a slut, Gaga said of her appearance in the episode according to Entertainment Weekly. The apple doesn't fall far from my artistic tree.
Some other noteworthy celebrity cameos on the Simpsons over the years include British comedian Ricky Gervais, Coldplay's Chris Martin, and country legend Johnny Cash.
Although the animated comedy has been airing for over 20 years, cast member Nancy Cartwright said there are other celebrities she would like to work with, too.
I've always wanted to work with Hugh Jackman, the Bart Simpson voice actress told E! Online. They'd do a song and dance and that'd be fun! A musical! I think that the next movie that they do should actually be a musical and get all these guys: Lady Gaga, Michael Buble and Josh Groban.
In August, when Gaga recorded her voice-overs for the episode, she revealed that voice acting was a new experience for her.
I make music, but I don't do voice-overs every day of the week, the 25-year-old pop celebrity told Entertainment Weekly. Their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny. I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor.
Among her accomplishments ranging from an HBO tour special to Grammy Award victories and outlandishly original music videos, Gaga said that her appearance on The Simpsons ranks high up on her list.
I would say this is one of the coolest things I've ever done, she said to Entertainment Weekly. My dad's probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.
