NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hometown girl Lady Gaga will soon be visiting more animated surroundings: Springfield.

The constantly contoversial superstar revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she recently recorded a guest spot on The Simpsons

Gaga will be playing herself, and even though she knows her character pretty well, it doesn’t mean she wasn’t a little bit nervous about the gig.

“I make music, but I don’t do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor,” she told EW.

“That’s what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines.”

Gaga’s caricature, in the episode aptly titled “Lisa Goes Gaga,” heads to Springfield when she learns that the town is plagued by low self-esteem.  While she’s there cheering residents up, she also gets a little action with Marge. 

Yup, Lady Gaga plants a big ole kisseroo on Marge Simpson.

 “I play a little bit of a slut,” Gaga joked. “The apple doesn’t fall far from my artistic tree.”

The episode is scheduled to air next spring.
