Lady Gaga And The Muppets Together Again: How The VMAs Made It Possible

As a rumors of a Christmas special brew, MTV News takes a look back into the Gaga/Muppet love affair.

Lady Gaga is inviting a few special guests to spend the holidays with her. The ARTPOP singer has reportedly filmed a holiday special with the Muppets.

The show was shot in Los Angeles, E! reports, but an airdate for the television event has yet to be revealed.

Any good Little Monster knows that Gaga has a deep history with the Muppets, which dates all the way back to 2009. MTV News takes a look back:

Gaga first entered the Muppets’ cartoony world when she famously sported a dress made entirely of Kermit The Frog dolls back in July of that year. Months after she rocked the Jean Charles de Castelbajac-deigned frock on German TV, the Mother Monster took her fandom for the Jim Henson-created characters to the next level. She actually walked the carpet of the 2009 VMAs with Kermit .

At the time, the amphibian icon left the singer quite impressed. She told MTV News on the carpet how much she enjoyed having the chance to go out with Kermit, which we’re sure left his longtime love Miss Piggy green with envy. “He’s been a really good date,” Gaga said. “It’s our first date, but we’ve been eyeing each other for a while.”

In the days after the twosome caused a stir together, Kermit opened up about the date , denying that any romance was brewing between them despite sharing a kiss on the carpet.

“Well, I wouldn’t really call it a ‘date’ — at least not if I don’t want to end up as a coat for Miss Piggy. Y’see, I just gave Lady Gaga a ride to the VMAs, and when Lady Gaga left her credentials in the limo, I had to bring them to her,” he said at the time, later adding that he thought Gaga looked great in her Jean Paul Gaultier gown, among her other memorable looks from that VMAs .

He said, “Lady Gaga looked great in everything she wore. And I haven’t seen that many wardrobe changes since … well, since the last time Miss Piggy and I were late for a movie.”

In the years since, Gaga has remained in the Muppets’ inner circle. For her Monster Ball tour, Gaga worked with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to create The Fame Monster prop, which served as a central theme to the tour, used during that trek. Later, Gaga was also rumored to have a part in the 2011 flick, “The Muppets.” While the movie’s star, Jason Segel, had been hoping to make it happen, Gaga never made it into the flick .

But now just might be the right time for her to finally reconnect with her old pals and celebrate her latest album, ARTPOP , slated to hit retailers just in time for the holidays on November 11.
