Ah Thanksgiving, that special time of year where we gather our families around a perfectly cooked meal and give thanks for what’s important in life: Lady Gaga. In what we can only hope will be an annual tradition, ABC announced plans for A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, a 90-minute special airing November 24 featuring eight performance by the pantless Pilgrim herself. Gaga will also give an interview with Katie Couric for the televised event, which she will direct. On the off chance she’s reading this…Gaga, can you lay off the grotesque mermaid imagery from “You And I”? We’re going to be eating, after all.
Joining in the festivities will be Gaga’s family and friends, who will serve as an intimate audience for her concert at her high school Sacred Heart Catholic School in New York. We know some of you might traditionally be watching football and slipping into a yam coma while this is on, but if you tune in to Gaga’s spectacle, you can at least place bets on whether or not we’ll see Nonna Germanotta lowered onto the stage in a Lucite cornucopia. We’d say the odds of that happening is roughly 1:1.
