Lady Gaga to Star in ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

By February 25, 2015

The world of “American Horror Story” just gained the perfect pop star to lead what will be the fifth season of the anthology horror series coming this fall

Today, FX announced that Lady Gaga will be taking her acting chops to cable for “American Horror Story: Hotel.” Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the show right now, because as has become customary for new seasons of the show, the plot is kept under wraps.

The new season will premiere in October, and Lady Gaga has revealed a teaser right here:


The news comes just after Lady Gaga impressed everyone with her wonderful tribute to The Sound of Music at the 87th Academy Awards. She’s also been getting a lot of acclaim for her collaborative album “Cheek to Cheek” which she made with iconic singer Tony Bennett.

The profile Lady Gaga has in public, mainly when it comes to her outrageous wardrobe choices, seems to be a perfect fit for “American Horror Story.” However, we hope that she’s not just doing weird things just because she’s Lady Gaga. In fact, it would be better if she was more of a normal character instead.

This promises to be the highest profile and most extensive acting gig Lady Gaga has gotten yet, though she previously had brief appearances in Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Her presence is bound to make the coming season of “American Horror Story” a big one, but we’ll see if it’s more than just a gimmick in October.
