Lady Gaga’s Simpsons alter ego was born this way — that is, skinny, yellow, and wearing a tiara. By the way, there will be plenty more Gaga to gawk at: This is only one of 18 outfits that she’ll don in an upcoming episode, which airs May 20 on Fox.
In his full review of Born This Way, Adam Markovitz writes that Gaga “brings expert songcraft to each cut—tectonic chord changes, soaring choruses, and that sawtooth-edged voice—even when her goth-lite lyrics don’t deserve the effort.” But what letter grade does that translate to?
Good news for little monsters: Gaga originally planned to debut her next single at the Grammys this Sunday. Now she’s saying that “Born This Way” will instead premiere on Friday, though the singer didn’t explain exactly how that’s going to happen.
