Lady Gaga admits she plays "a bit of a slut" while voicing an animated version of herself in The Simpsons.

The Marry The Night hitmaker is due to star in forthcoming episode Lisa Goes Gaga of the popular cartoon comedy series, which will see her change into 18 outfits during the show and even embrace Marge Simpson.

She said: "I play a bit of a slut. The apple doesn't fall far from my artistic tree."

Among her costume changes in the episode, Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - wears her infamous meat dress made of raw beef which she donned in real life at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

The episode sees Gaga arrive in the Simpsons' hometown of Springfield aboard the Gaga Express train, and the Born This Way hitmaker sets about trying to boost Lisa Simpson's spirits after the character becomes a social outcast.

The 26-year-old singer has previously described starring in an episode of The Simpsons as the "coolest" thing she has ever done.

She said: "I make music, but I don't do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humour.

"That's what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines.

"I would say this is one of the coolest things I've ever done. My dad's probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out."
