There is certainly a perception in the world that Lady Gaga is a World Class Weirdo, and her reputation for eccentricity is certainly something that Gaga’s camp has milked over the years. Some would argue that Gaga has gone to the weirdo well once too often, and her lack of relatability is one of the primary reasons that ARTPOP has been underperforming against its expectations. To her credit, Gaga seems to have recognized this flaw in her brand strategy and has been working overtime of late to humanize herself. Her widely praised appearance on SNL last month was her first successful step in this direction, and we feel that anyone who watches the cable premiere of Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular on VH1 this Saturday, December 7th at 7PM/6C will definitely gain a new appreciation for Miss Stefani Germanotta.
With that said, here are the Five Most Memorable Moments From Lady Gaga & The Muppets‘ Holiday Spectacular!

Flamboyance? Check. Superior ivory tickling skills? Check. Propensity for outrageousness? Check. As you can tell, Gaga and the Rocket Man have a lot in common, which is why it was so fun to see these two chat and play together during the special.
