Lady Gaga's Televised Turkey Day Will Give Way To A "White Christmas"
Posted by Newson 11/23/2011 at 7:11 PM
Lady Gaga’s Thanksgiving dinner has promised us Addams Family makeup, an abundance of candelabra and visits from Tony Bennett, but the upcoming 90-minute special is truly a launching pad for album sales, specifically her latest disc, A Very Gaga Holiday. Because you didn’t think she was going to let the holiday sandwiched between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve pass her by, did you? Available today, the four-song EP features live versions of “You and I” and “Edge of Glory,” as performed on the holiday special, as well as classics like “Orange Colored Sky” and “White Christmas.” A Very Gaga Thanksgiving was directed by Mother Monster, so naturally she’ll take liberty with her cover choices, adding an updated verse to “White Christmas” (“I’m dreaming of a white snowman/ With a carrot nose and charcoal eyes/And when he cries I’m going to tell him it’s OK/Because Santa’s in his sleigh and he’s on his way”). Fans of Gaga’s brash, Broadway transformation on “The Lady Is A Tramp” should get to clicking. Experience Mother Monster’s new holiday traditions below.
