TV Tuesday: A very Gaga Thanksgiving

I do love me some Gaga. Not in that paint my face and stand in a 4 day line for tickets, but I do love her music. And, contrary to popular belief, she is a savvy and smart woman. I have been impressed with her every time I have seen her speaking on TV, and it is almost never to promote herself. It is typically to speak on behalf of some organization or another (HIV/AIDS in young women, empowering GBLT youth). And TELL me you don't turn up the radio when you hear some "Alejandro" or "Bad Romance"! Anyway...

I was intrigued when I saw GMA promoting her Thanksgiving special, A very Gaga Thanksgiving. Here is a little taste:



Since Matt had to work late (seriously, people, stop buying furniture so we can have our daddy back!), Larkyn and I laid together and watched 90 minutes of wonderfulness. Yes, it calls for a word like that. I loved watching her flirt with Tony Bennett and make glittery crafts with the third grade girls of her alma mater, Sacred Heart. In between the interviews and snippets, we got to enjoy some of our favorite Gaga tunes and some holiday songs sung in a cozy, warm setting (Sacred Heart). The voice! Oh, her voice. My favorite part was seeing the sensitive side I have never seen. She spoke about her small, tight-knit family and I admired her fierce love for/protection of them. When it was over, I wanted more!

You may roll your eyes at the towering shoes or the arrival to the Grammys in an egg, but you can't deny that she is a creative spirit. I loved getting to know (as Katie Couric called it) her more traditional existence. If you can catch it on your TV on-demand, the big screen is really the way to go. Or snuggle up to your laptop and watch it here. Enjoy!
