Lady Gaga: Headed to "The Simpsons”
Further expanding her career into the animated realm, Lady Gaga has announced she’ll appear on the uber-popular cartoon “The Simpsons.”
The “Bad Romance” songstress confirmed that she’ll provide her voice for an upcoming episode called “Lisa Goes Gaga.”
Gaga explained, "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."
"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."
Lisa Simpson voice actor Yeardley Smith noted, "This is extraordinary! I'm stunned that she has time in her schedule that she's coming to our studio to record. She's playing herself, and ['The Simpsons' 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."
