Lady Gaga Sings A Song To Her Little Monsters On ‘The Simpsons’

Lady Gaga's voiceover acting debut on The Simpsons aired last night (May 20), and though Lisa remained unimpressed with the pop star throughout most of the episode, we thought Mother Monster did pretty well in animated form. If you have Lady Gaga as your special guest, you obviously need to have her sing, and sing…

Lady Gaga On ‘The Simpsons': Watch A Preview

Money and awards aside, you know you've really made it when you a) get parodied by Weird Al Yankovic, and b) appear as yourself on The Simpsons. Last year was "Perform This Way", and now Lady Gaga can check off the latter marker of success, as the pop star will lend her voice — and most of…

Katy Perry And Her Boobs Welcome On ‘The Simpsons’

As you may recall, Grammy nominee Katy Perry was banished from Sesame Street for putting her assets a little too clearly on display. But not all TV shows (allegedly) meant for a younger audience are as uptight — on last night's Christmas-themed episode of The Simpsons, the pop star and her cleavage were celebrated i…

Katy Perry To Guest Star On ‘The Simpsons’

Katy Perry might have been given the axe from Sesame Street, but the mammory-enhanced (and proud of it) pop star isn't through with puppets just yet. Perry will appear on an upcoming episode of The Simspons in a live-action segment featuring the Simpson clan as puppets. In related news, Katy's cleavage will get its ow…

‘Glee’ On ‘The Simpsons’ — Watch A Preview!

Fox is wisely creating some synergy between two of their hit shows—for The Simpsons' 22nd season premiere, Glee's Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley voice campers at an arts camp, welcoming Lisa with a rendition of the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations." It's cute, but if anything Glee-related doesn't have Sue Sylvester in it, we…

‘American Idol’ Judges (And Ryan!) Get Simpsonized

We know you spent most of your Sunday night either crying during or complaining about the Lost finale, but believe or not, there were other things happening on TV. Like the American Idol judges and Ryan Seacrest guest-starring on The Simpsons! Watch a clip below.

Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” Gets Simpsonized

There are enough people on the Internet imitating Ke$ha that it was only a matter of time until The Simpsons would satirize it. Last night, in place of their typical title sequence couch gag, the Simpsons honored both the oft-headdressed pop star's hit "Tik Tok", as well as music fans' penchant for remaking music videos in their own image. Whether you're…

Coldplay’s Chris Martin Gets Simpsonized

Is it too early in the new decade to start another list of the Best Pop Star Appearances on The Simpsons? Chris Martin lent his vocal talents to The Simpsons last night, as he led Coldplay through an LOL-inducing private show for Homer and Bart. Take the jump to see the band's appearance on the show…

The Decade’s Top 10 Pop Star Guest Appearances On ‘The Simpsons’

Twenty-one seasons in, The Simpsons continues to shine as a beacon of smart, funny TV. But it is also one of our favorite cultural fun-house mirrors, and we'd be remiss if we didn't spend a moment looking back on the decade of pop that was through the prism that is America's best dysfunctional animated family.

Fall Out Boy Turns Yellow

Though I haven't watched a new episode of The Simpsons in a few years-–a fact that makes me more sorta sad as owner of the first 10 seasons on DVD-–I'm excited to hear that the show is keeping the tradition of guest musicians recording alternate takes of (Oscar nominee) Danny Elfman's seminal theme song. Joining…

Kurt Loder is going to be on this Sunday's episode of The Simpsons--because it's an "episode about the '90s"--but what he really wants to do is play a victim on Law & Order: SVU. Dude, at least if you go on Criminal Intent, your character might be able to die with a little more dignity.
