Lady Gaga To Star In “American Horror Story” Season Five

It’s been a really normal couple weeks for Lady Gaga, full of regular human things. She got engaged to boyfriend Taylor Kinney on Valentine’s Day, and performed a stunning but vanilla tribute to The Sound of Music at the Oscars this weekend. But today, perhaps in an attempt to compensate for her alarming lack of recent weirdness, she just dropped a Twitter bombshell.

That’s right, Lady Gaga just confirmed that she will be taking a role in season five of FX’s American Horror Storyand revealed that this season will revolve around a hotel. Nothing more is known about the season,  what character she might be playing, or how many anachronistic cover songs she’ll be forced to sing, but one thing’s for certain. In trying to replace Jessica Lange, Ryan Murphy is going to pull out all the stops in getting as much star power as he can.

This will be Gaga’s first starring TV role, though she has acted before in movies like Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And her music videos are long enough that they probably count for something too.
