Lady Gaga is to Appear With The Muppets For a One-Off TV Special in America Next Month

The Applause singer will star alongside the puppets in a 90 minute special on American network ABC.
Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular will air on 28 November, which is Thanksgiving in the US. Sir Elton John and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are among the other guests who will be a part of the show. It’s the second time Lady Gaga, 27, has been part of the network’s holiday special.

“I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year,” said the singer. “I knew it just wouldn’t be a complete night of laughter and memories without The Muppets!”

In 2009, Kermit the Frog was Lady Gaga’s date to the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). “Can’t wait to see the gang again and I hope Miss Piggy’s still not mad about Kermit. We’re just friends!”

In a statement from ABC, Kermit the Frog said: “What an incredible opportunity!” “We have a long history with Ms. Gaga, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her.

The singer also wore a dress made of Kermit the Frog toys on German TV in the same year as her appearance with him at the VMAs.

“We won’t even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe, again,” added Kermit.

Lady Gaga is also set to perform at the first YouTube Music Awards with Eminem and Arcade Fire, among others.

She will appear on Sunday’s (27 October) X Factor results show. It was announced that she’ll perform Venus from her upcoming third studio album Artpop, which is scheduled to be released in November.

Miss Piggy Challenges Clooney To Wrestling Match

Miss Piggy has challenged George Clooney to a wrestling match at the Orange British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) 2012.

The outspoken puppet star of new movie ‘The Muppets’ is the official red carpet host of the film awards, and is looking forward to the possibility of meeting ‘The Descendants’ star, who is dating former wrestler Stacey Kleiber.

Miss Piggy said: “I don’t wrestle girlfriends. However, if George wants to wrestle, bring it on! Best two out of three falls? Winner gets a dinner?”

She also promised that the ceremony could be a career highlight for a number of actors’ career, not because they could win awards, but because they will get to meet her.

She added: “Imagine the likes of George Clooney, Jean Dujardin, Michael Fassbender, Gary Oldman and Brad Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers by getting a chance to speak with the one and only moi – Miss Piggy!

“Naturally, I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask.”

Miss Piggy – famed for her diva personality and glamorous outfits – also thinks there’s only one star who can compete with her in the glamour stakes, Lady Gaga, and has given an insight into her daily beauty regime.

She said: “I wake up at the crack of dawn, realise it’s far too early to get up, then go back to bed and sleep until mid-morning. Then first thing, I meet with my personal trainer. Not only is he a gorgeous hunk, but he does the workout for me,” she revealed.

“Hey, if I’m paying, then he’s sweating, not moi. After a relaxing massage and a healthy brunch, my diva-certified crew of stylists, hairdressers, make-up artists and sycophants arrives to prepare me for the day.”

The BAFTAs take place at London’s Royal Opera House this Sunday (12.02.12).
