Lady Gaga has signed on for a guest spot on The Simpsons, according to EW. Better yet, she's already recorded the voiceovers for her role this season!
In “Lisa Goes Gaga,” the singer makes a pit stop in Springfield after learning that it’s teeming with low self-esteem. There, she winds up trying to cheer up a dejected Lisa through the power of speech, song, and a flash mob.
Obviously. Here's Lady Gaga recording her lines yesterday:
Gaga admits her visit to Simpsons HQ was “a little nerve-wracking.”
“I make music, but I don’t do voice-overs every day of the week, and the characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor,” she tells EW.
“That’s what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much. Really I tried to just be as sincere as I could with the lines.”
Sounds like it was worth it in the end:
“I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done,” says Gaga. “My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.”
She rules. We can't wait for The Simpsons quotes this produces ...
