[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] kept it classy for her “Very Gaga Thanksgiving” TV special Thursday night. But that doesn’t mean she was not Gaga-like. The video highlights are within.
The show opened with Gaga’s featured duet with the elder statesman of class, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tony Bennett[/lastfm]. After they performed “The Lady Is A Tramp”, Bennett called Gaga, “a modern day Picasso.”
During an interview segment with Katie Couric, in which Gaga appeared in a pilgrim-like outfit and wearing her hair long and flowing (or was it her hair? It’s hard to tell sometimes) Gaga revealed that she had sat nude in front of Bennett, so he could do some sketches of her. Those sketches will appear in a future issue of “Vanity Fair” magazine.

Gaga also revealed she had bankrolled her Dad’s Italian restaurant he recently opened, fulfilling a life long dream for him.
Gaga then fried up some turkey and made waffles with “her favorite chef in the world”, Art Smith.
Eventually Gaga got back to what Gaga does best, performing. Coming to you from a dining room in an old mansion, Gaga and her band kicked out some songs from her most recent album, Born This Way, while others enjoyed dinner at the table.
And “Edge of Glory”, which Gaga revealed during the performance, was inspired by her Grandparents relationship.
And a rather energetic and jazzy take on “You And I”…where she changed the lyrics to include her dad in the line of the only three men that she will serve “in her whole life”…
