On Sunday night (May 20), “The Simpsons” will conclude its 23rd (!) season with a hotly awaited episode that features Lady Gaga‘s visit to Springfield.
The buzz around the show is huge, and everyone is talking about exactly what she’ll be up to when she visits one of TV’s most famous families … as well as her cartoon iteration’s staggering 18 costume changes. Once our pals over at MTV Style caught wind of her character’s many different looks, they couldn’t help but reach out to the show to see what it was like to work with one of pop’s biggest names and how they came up with the many ensembles – some of which mirror things she’s worn in the past (see the meat dress above) and others that are original to the show, including a cool heel-within-a-heel look.
MTV Style talked to one of the show’s legendary writer-producers, Al Jean, to get the scoop on Gaga, and the insider had nothing but love for the “Born This Way” pop diva. “She was really excited about the whole thing,” Jean told MTV Style. “After she signed on to do it, she came in to record dialogue twice, and we showed her a rough cut the second time. She seemed thrilled.”
