[Music News] Carson Daly: Lady Gaga Gets Animated For Her Upcoming Appearance On “The Simpsons!”
Don’t have a cow, man, but [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] is continuing her pursuit of world domination with an guest-starring role on the legendary cartoon, The Simpsons!
She recorded her voice overs for the show during her recent visit to Los Angeles.
This isn’t new territory for pop stars. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm] was a guest on the show just last year.
But can Gaga pull it off?
We’ll have to wait and see, but we’re intrigued to find out why Mother Monster thinks her character is a little bit slutty!
In an interview with EW.com, the 25-year-old songstress confirmed that she will be appearing in an episode titled “Lisa Goes Gaga.”
Gaga is no stranger to the recording studio, but this new experience was still a challenge.
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.

In the episode, which is scheduled to air in the spring of 2012, Gaga comes to Springfield to cheer up Lisa Simpson.
Somehow, things go a little haywire and Mother Monster ends up kissing The Simpsons matriarch, Marge!
I play a little bit of a slut. The apple doesn’t fall far from my artistic tree.
Well, we can’t wait to see how that all plays out!
Yeardley Smith, the woman who voices Lisa was shocked that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] was able to fit the animated series into her busy schedule and she revealed a little more about the pop star’s character to Broadway.com.
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.
For someone like Gaga, who has traveled the world and made millions, you’d think this would just be another day in the life of a famous pop star, but she is stoked to have this new opportunity.
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.
Considering how many characters Gaga portrays in her “You And I” music video, we don’t think she will have any problem fitting in with the cartoon crew!
