Working with Kermit again...
E! News reports that Lady Gaga and The Muppets have teamed up to shoot a holiday special together for ABC. Details have not been revealed, but the production took place in Los Angeles. Gaga has a history with the Muppets. Kermit the Frog was her date to the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and Jim Henson's Creature Shop created pieces for The Monster Ball tour in 2010. She also once wore an outfit made from plush Kermit toys on German TV as a statement against fur.
Gaga was originally going to make her movie debut in The Muppets in 2011 (which starred Jason Segel and Amy Adams) but it was cut due to the film being too long.
This will be Gaga's second holiday special for ABC. In 2011 she hosted and directed A Very Gaga Thanksgiving with guests Katie Couric, Art Smith and Tony Bennett. She performed several of her hits in addition to "White Christmas" and Nat King Cole's "Orange Colored Sky." Filming took place at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in New York City, where she went to school as a kid.
