Gaga ruined the Muppet's
2 December 2013 | by desperatehousewife917See all my reviews

I am a Muppet's fan... having grown up on watching them. I could not wait to see the show with my kids. I was appalled that they would allow Gaga to dress so scantily (my 8 and 10 year old were uncomfortable looking at her in her seashell bra and panties). Seriously, why couldn't she cover up her tattoos and take out the nose piercing? Such a poor example for children to see all that! Should have been about the Muppet's not Gaga's new album! I would NOT watch this with children!

In addition, Gaga was not even a good actress in the show. & Seriously...lets bring on a cross dressing man to sing too... really confuse todays children! Why can't it be a clean family show. I am not an old bitty or anything... just think that this is what is wrong with America that this stuff is OK to watch for kids.
