Lady Gaga has a penchant for doing what we least expect, and that includes guest starring in an episode of the CW drama Gossip Girl. Pop music’s IT girl, did the appearance on her terms, stating that was the most important thing to her, to make the appearance relevant to her art, which it certainly was.
Gaga’s prime time debut was written into an episode of the show by explaining that Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) gets her step father to book the pop star and former NYU student as an act for Cabaret Night at the college. During the short the pop powerhouse performed her new single “Bad Romance” with ladders. Gaga spoke with MTV.com about the process explaining:
I really sat down with the writers. I was, like, ‘Look, I want to do this, and the reason I want to do this is because I am trying to say something that is not mainstream in a mainstream capacity. So, if I can say it on your show, that would be a real coup d’état for me as a performance artist.’
