Lady Gaga lost out on the chance to make her big screen debut in "The Muppets" after her cameo was cut from the final film.
The pop superstar is a self-confessed Muppets fan and agreed to film a sequence in which she and her all-star entourage, including Ed Helms and John Krasinski, squared off against Miss Piggy. But Gaga's film debut was left on the cutting-room floor when director James Bobin was forced to drop a number of scenes to bring the three-hour movie down to 98 minutes.
According to 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. Rumor 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 -- Katy Perry's musical sequence, in which she spoofs her hit song "I Kissed A Girl," didn't make the cut either. Screenwriter Nick Stoller tells MTV.com, "At one point we had squirrels singing 'I Kissed a Squirrel,' or it was Miss Piggy singing 'I kissed a squirrel and I liked it.' More and more squirrels are lining up to kiss her, and she's getting weirded out."
