In the episode, superstar Gaga comes to Springfield after learning that the whole town community suffers from low self-worth. Gaga’s mission is to cheer up Lisa, who is very down. Gaga revealed that she ends up kissing Marge in the episode – an unexpected event. Gaga laughed about the scene and jokingly said, “I play a little bit of a slut. The apple doesn’t fall far from my artistic tree.”
In her interview for the Entertainment Weekly, Gaga said that she felt a bit scared and overwhelmed when it came to record her parts in The Simpson’s studio. “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,” Gaga said. “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.”
As an artist and musician Lady Gaga is well-known for her daring sense of style and provocative music videos. Her achievements in the music industry are tidy, including five Grammy awards, two Guinness world records, 15 million albums, and 51 million singles sold worldwide.

While Gaga is very excited about guest starring on the show, her father may be even more thrilled about his daughter’s appearance in the animated show. “I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done,” she says. “My dad’s probably going to do 80 back flips when the episode comes out.”
