Lady Gaga is heading to Springfield for a guest gig on The Simpsons.
Yeardley Smith (who voices Lisa Simpson) told Broadway.com, “This is extraordinary! I’m stunned that she has time in her schedule that she’s coming to our studio to record.”
Gaga told Entertainment Weekly: “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.”
Previewing Gaga’s storyline, she continued, “She’s playing herself, and the 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.”
Gaga’s appearance will air during the animated hit’s upcoming 23rd season' episode,on 2012.
