Lady Gaga has appeared with legendary Jim Henson puppets The Muppets in a teaser for what looks set to be a heart-warming Thanksgiving special show.

The ARTPOP star is seen in the short clip wearing a fluffy pink hat and frilly outfit that looks like a tribute to the absent Miss Piggy. She is seen consulting with The Muppets about the finale for the American holiday special.

Using The Muppets as a brain trust, she claims she's gathered them together because, as she puts it, they are "the most creative minds I know". There are those who might suggest Gaga could have used that level of creativity when making ARTPOP, but it's hard to be mean when she shows her charming side in this way.

The publicity campaign for the new album has bee a bit rocky, with the star mentioning her soft drug use to anyone who will listen, but hopefully this will be a piece of gentle relief for both her and us when it airs.

Below: The most pretentious things Lady Gaga has said promoting ARTPOP

  • "I'm not one icon. I'm every icon. I'm an icon that is made out of of all the colours on the palette at every time."

  • "Make sure when writing about my new album ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title! It's all in the details."

  • On how she relaxes - "A lot of meditation. I went out into the woods for a few days. I just disconnected myself from everything and allowed myself to be free and be human."

  • "ArtRave is November 10th, New York. 1800 people will be allowed in. The final retrogade phase of Mercury will occur, transitioning communication. It will reveal the miscommunications in our lives. We will no longer be able to side-step the consequences of what we choose to say."

  • "To make ARTPOP there must be an exchange between two auras: one from the sphere of ART, and the other from the sphere of POP."

  • "I wrote 4 hooks in 'Venus'. The snippet is of the first two before the true chorus. The rise before the orgasm."

  • On the release of ARTPOP - "A quick ejaculation"

  • "All of these outfits and all of these wigs that I've been changing in over the years - this is my way of assimilating, and this is my way of surviving. This is my way of getting to Oz, to have all my dreams come true...Dorothy was able to transform in order to survive."

  • "FUN FACT about ARTPOP: I sang the songs over and over until they were a part of me. Then we pressed record."
