Let’s give thanks to our family, our health, and oh, Lady Gaga?
ABC has released the preview for their brand-new holiday special A Very Gaga Thanksgiving and in it, the announcer excitedly proclaims that this year, they’re “Giving thanks with a capital G.” For Gaga. Get it?
The television network Gods have decided that there will be no escape from the pop star and her little monsters this year — even on the days when you’re supposed to be spending quality with your family — and you’re going to have to appreciate being “Born This Way” while you eat your turkey and you will like it.
Apparently, Gaga’s Thanksgiving hoopla includes Tony Bennett. Also, chef Art Smith appears at a banquet table filled with Thanksgiving fixings — and a waffle iron — to teach the singer how to prepare deep-fried turkey and waffles for her guests.
Those guests include a small troupe of children, shown in the preview gathered around Gaga while she blows glitter on them. Just like the Pilgrims and Indians did. Other things you can look forward to in the 90-minute special: carving of surprisingly non-bedazzled turkey, a tear-laden interview with Katie Couric, and performances inside of what looks to be the Phantom Of The Opera‘s underground lair.
So strap on your Thanksgiving meat dress and crank up Born this Way or The Fame and have a Very Gaga Thanksgiving airing November 24 on ABC at 9:30pm ET/8:30pmCT.
