More Lady Gaga Info about Thanksgiving Special
Lady Gaga is set to celebrate the annual national day of gratitude, family, and overindulgence with her own 90-minute prime-time Thanksgiving special on ABC reports MTV.com.
Airing November 24, aka Thanksgiving night, "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving," directed by Gaga, will feature the singer performing eight songs -- including recent hits like "You and I" and "The Edge of Glory," as well "The Lady is a Tramp," her duet with Tony Bennett, and the holiday favorite "White Christmas" -- in front of her family and closest friends.
The pop star will also be visiting Convent of the Sacred Heart Catholic School, which she and other famous women like Paris Hilton and Caroline Kennedy attended, to chat with news anchor Katie Couric about her life and career.
"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."
And because Thanksgiving is nothing without the food, Gaga and chef Art Smith will whip up a few dishes, including deep-fried turkey and waffles reports CNN.
Along with preparing the release of her upcoming single, "Marry The Night," and preparing her next tour, Gaga, who is one of the busiest -- if not most famous -- women in the world, will perform on the U.K. version of "X Factor" on November 13.
She's also just announced she's launching The Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit focusing on youth empowerment and "issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring, and career development," with the help of the MacArthur Foundation and Harvard University.
Now the only question is: Will she be stuffed into a turkey dress on November 24?
