Watch ‘A Very Gaga Thanksgiving’

Lady Gaga’s eagerly awaited A Very Gaga Thanksgiving finally aired, and we’re ready to establish it as a new Turkey Day tradition: after you bicker with your parents and stuff your face until it hurts, you watch a pop superstar sing holiday classics, play with third graders and not discuss her love life. Mother Monster packed all of that and more into her 90-minute broadcast special, along with a rendition of “Marry The Night” and that old chestnut “Bad Romance”. She also shared a stunning revelation about her encounters with Tony Bennett. Relive the magic below.

While the special showed a fairly subdued and even reserved side of Gaga, it also included its share of (typically) bizarre moments. Chief among them, perhaps, was when Gaga noted that she had posed nude for her “The Lady Is A Tramp” duet partner Tony Bennett, who is evidently drawing her for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. “I walked in and said, ‘Well, Tony, here we are,’ and I dropped my robe and I got into position. I felt shy, and thought, ‘It’s Tony Bennett, why am I naked?'” (How many times have we asked ourselves the same question?)

If you watched Gaga’s Thanksgiving special with your loved ones (or even your family), let us know what everyone thought.
