No, seriously. That's what Lady Gaga's just-announced ABC Thanksgiving special is being called. Because apparently taking over Times Square for New Year's Eve is not enough.
Reading the rundown of A Very Gaga Thanksgiving , we have to wonder: has the Mother Monster gone soft? The special will feature eight performances from Gaga, including a duet with Tony Bennett and holiday songs like "White Christmas," an appearance from Gaga-daddy chef friend Art Smith,
and a sit-down interview with Katie Couric at the singer's alma mater, Sacred Heart Catholic School. That's some pretty family-friendly entertainment right there.
"We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon," Couric said in a statement. "This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers ... Lady Gaga as a high school student still bruised by being excluded from the party, Lady Gaga as a devoted daughter and caring sister, Lady Gaga as a 25-year-old woman embracing fame and fortune that seemed to come overnight. She will impress you, delight you and surprise you." But...what surprises are left now that we've seen Gaga sans makeup?
