Lady Gaga gets a Thanksgiving special called 'A Very Gaga Thanksgiving'
Lady Gaga is getting her own Thanksgiving special.
The singer will direct and star in a special called "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving," which is set to air on ABC on November 24 at 9:30 p.m. The 90-minute special will show the private life of Lady Gaga and will feature eight songs by the singer performed in front of a small audience that her includes friends and family.
The special will also include her duet of "The Lady is a Tramp" with Tony Bennett and new single "Marry The Night." Lady Gaga will also perform hit singles from her "Born This Way" album including "You and I" and "The Edge of Glory," which was written in the memory of her grandfather.
Lady Gaga will also sing traditional holiday tunes like "White Christmas."
Katie Couric will interview the iconic singer at her alma-mater, Sacred Heart Catholic School in Manhattan. Chef Art Smith and Lady Gaga also prepare a Thanksgiving feast of deep-fried turkey and waffles for her guests.
"We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon," Couric said in a statement. "This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers ... Lady Gaga as a high school student still bruised by being excluded from the party, Lady Gaga as a devoted daughter and caring sister, Lady Gaga as a 25-year-old woman embracing fame and fortune that seemed to come overnight. She will impress you, delight you and surprise you."
On Wednesday it was announced that the singer will start the Born This Way Foundation, which is focused on youth empowerment and deal with "issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development."
The Born This Way Foundation will launch next year with the help of the MacArthur Foundation and Harvard University. The Grammy Award-winning singer will be a director of the foundation along with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
