Washington: Lady Gaga’s first cameo on the big screen, in new family movie ‘The Muppets’ was edited out of the film in an effort to cut it short.
The Poker face hitmaker is a self-confessed Muppets fan and agreed to film a funny sequence in which she and her all-star entourage, including comedians Ed Helms and John Krasinski, reportedly squared off against Miss Piggy.
According to writer/producer Clint Morris, director James Bobin was forced to drop a number of scenes to bring the three-hour movie down to 98 minutes.
“Stefani Germanotta’s big moment from the film was cut,” Contactmusic quoted him as writing on MovieHole.net.
“With her entourage, including Ed Helms, Eric Stonestreet... and John Krasinski, Gaga would have gone head-to-head with Miss Piggy in a sequence. Rumour has it Madonna’s Vogue was somehow involved (which makes sense considering Piggy is the editor of Paris Vogue magazine in the film)...”
Gaga wasn’t the only pop star to miss out on a Muppets cameo, singer Katy Perry’s musical sequence, in which she spoofs her hit song ‘I Kissed A Girl’, was also cut out of the film.
