Lady Gaga Kills The Simpsons

Gaga Simpsons MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

In showbiz, if you flop, they say you died. If you were a smash, they say you killed. The season finale of Fox's long-running cartoon/family sitcom/satirical genius featuring pop icon Lady Gaga most assuredly killed.

The Simpsons is one of those shows I take for granted, assuming it couldn't possibly still be any good after all these years. I usually forget to watch it or that it's even still airing until I'm given a reason to...then, it smacks me in the face what genius this show is and exactly why it's been on 157 billion years and maintains its level of quality. 


The reason this time was the appearance of Lady Gaga.  I was a little hesitant when I'd heard that Gaga was appearing on the show. Don't get me wrong, I am a good, little monster and consider myself a Gaga-phile. Heck, I even wrote the book on her; get your copy here. Hey, I was born this way! (With enhancements.)

I was a little worried that the timing was off, as Gaga is prepping for another big a$$ tour during downtime in between world domination. 

Gaga or GooGoo, The Simpsons is a darn good show, and they did a spot on parody of Gaga making being different a trend and beautifully tying it into Lisa's long lamented insecurity and unpopularity.

Gaga read her lines well and sang them even better. Paws up to the Gagmeiester for being in on the joke and letting them have a little fun with her but remaining true to her character. (You DO know she's just a character, right?)

Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
