Lady Gaga is teaming with the Muppets for a holiday special on ABC, the network confirmed today.

“Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular” will feature Gaga performing songs from her new album “Artpop” with Muppet characters. Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and RuPaul will also appear in the 90-minute spesh.

Gaga and the Muppets have a notable history, as the pop star took Kermit the Frog to the 2009 MTV VMAs as her date, and featured Jim Henson’s Creature Shop pieces in her 2010 Monster Ball tour.

    you know my prediction was right about people when it comes to their opinions on gaga. Here she is with a totally different look and people still have derogatory things to say about her She.could be Jesus Christ and still talk down on her. People shouldn’t be so quick to criticize others because I’m sure if they look in the mirror they will see they’re not so perfect either. I’m sure there’s a lot of viewers will be tuning in on Thanksgiving to watch this. And it is in fact something she is doing on Thanksgiving. So for crying out loud if people don’t have anything good to say they should just keep moving on and not say anything at all tyvm

    Lady Gaga is a Speciesist and Spiciesism sucks! You can’t be pro environment and wear furs like in her video Aura. It’s a contradiction! Wearing furs is destroying nature, wild life and the forests. Please, educate yourself about Speciesism (it came from religious/creationist traditions). Remember, Christ eating the lamb because it’s clean meat. Religion told us that animals are inferior and here to serve us because we have intelligence and a soul. Yep, in this case what about people who have low IQ (mental health) are they inferior? A soul, do you have evidence that animals don’t have a soul? Please, understand theory of Evolution, we are all species in this earth and we all must respect nature and not destroy it. Don’t let corporation like Gaga manipulate us to allow the destruction of this earth! Fight ignorance, fight speciesism as you are fighting racism, sexism and homophobia! THINK!
