Whether you love it, or you hate it, American Horror Story is a show that is everything I could want from a TV show revolved around the horror genre. [even if I’m behind and still haven’t watched “Freak Show” yet..] It’s creepy, the story telling tends to be nothing short of amazing, and the visual effects are always stunning!
However, today’s big news is not only the casting of Gaga, [which is still a shock to me] but also the big reveal of Season 5’s central theme. For those that don’ watch the show, each season of American Horror Story has a different subtitle, [season 1 was just American Horror Story, season 2 was known as “Asylum”, season 3 was “Coven”, and season 4 was “Freak Show”] but, according to Gaga, the subtitle for this year is “Hotel” which, if 100% true; knocks out the fan theory that was scattered over the Internet, which was that Season 5 was going to cover a fallout of chemical warfare. By the title, it seems as if we are instead getting something a little closer to themes from The Shining.
With Lady Gaga officially signed on, this can be considered her first major acting role, even if she did make small cameos in films such as Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Obviously, at the moment, the details revolving around season 5 are scarce, but chances are that Her role is a slightly bigger one this time around, mainly considering the fact that Jessica Lange is no longer in the show. Be sure to check out Lady Gaga‘s teaser video that she left on Twitter below!
Realistically though, I’m still not sure how I feel about this, I mean – I’m sure Lady Gaga can pull it off, with how weird she is [that’s a compliment!] but I just hope she isn’t replacing Jessica Lange entirely. I understand that Lange is done with the show as whole, but her acting is always on point and she’s clearly the star of the show’s last 4 seasons! How do you feel about Lady Gaga joining American Horror Story? Is it the greatest idea yet? or something that shouldn’t be happening at all? Let me know in a comment or two, or even over on Facebook.
