It’s not easy bringing back disco
What’s sometimes missing from a modern Muppets special is a sense of the 70s. One of the joys of rewatching the original “Muppet Show” is seeing shaggy-haired ’70s superstars like Mark Hamill and John Denver earnestly mixing it up with Muppets in fully polyester regalia.
Lady Gaga did her best to capture disco decade nostalgia with her RuPaul duet on Thursday’s “Lady Gaga and the Muppets Holiday Spectacular.” The song was “Fashion,” a very 70s concept, the beat was Chic, the color scheme appropriately garish.
Would it have killed Gaga to wear a lava lamp on her head? Still, looking good and feeling fine.
