Is Lady Gaga Becoming A Disney Princess?
Lady Gaga is starring in a new Disney movie debuting this winter, but you won’t be able to catch it on the big screen.
Instead the short film, Electric Holiday, will be shown at Barney’s Madison Avenue store in New York City as part of their holiday window display.
The 5-minute clip focuses on Minnie Mouse’s quest to find the perfect holiday dress. Soon her imagination takes over and she is whisked off to a special Paris fashion show featuring celebs like Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker and model Naomi Campbell.
The video also includes a few members of Mickey’s gang like Goofy (who’s got a pretty impressive strut) taking over the runway.

Some may remember hearing about this project when photos of a very skinny Minnie were released. Many fans believed the image sent the wrong message to young girls and even started a petition asking the company to change Minnie’s look.
Disney has since come out to defend the character’s new look by explaining that it appears in a brief segment where Minnie imagines herself in the high fashion world before turning back into the mouse we know and love.
