World’s least surprising casting decision? Ryan Murphy putting Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel , probably. Not that it wasn’t a big deal, or that it didn’t excite me, because it did. It’s just that… can you imagine a more fitting actress for the part? No, I can’t either. So, it makes perfect sense why the newest teaser for AHS: Hotel, which puts Lady Gaga at the front and center, is so totally in character for with her whole eccentric pop star persona.
As we’ve learned, Gaga’s character is going to beyond even her typical dark hijinks, what with drinking blood and all, but this promo is not quite as detailed. It’s much more in the vein of a Gaga music video on steroids, because it’s only 30 seconds long. I mean, you have to get as much of AHS and Gaga’s combined alluring spook factor in as you can, right? Right. So yeah, Gaga fans and observers alike will get their Gaga fill in this clip, with, of course, an American Horror Story twist. Because, at this point, the two entities are probably going to be synonymous with each other until the end of time (or the next season).
Here are seven moments from the American Horror Story: Hotel teaser that are so totally Lady Gaga.
1. Off The Bat, The Monster-like Shoes
Monster... get it? I digress.
2. The Breaking Of The Fourth Wall
Stare right into that camera... and our souls.
3. The... Well, The Weirdness
Whatever floats your boat... or keeps your hotel spooky, ya know?
4. The Sensory Overload
What. Is. Happening?! Ahhhhhh!
