Yassss! New details just rolled in about Lady Gaga's American Horror Story character (anyone else super excited for the premiere?!)
We had already heard the "Born This Way" crooner would be one-third of a love triangle with Matt Bomer and Finn Wittrock's characters, but now the name of Gaga's character and persona have been revealed as well.
The singer will play "wealthy social doyenne" Elizabeth – the owner of a haunted hotel - show co-creator Ryan Murphy said at FX's Television Critics Association Press Tour, according to Variety, adding that Elizabeth "consumed with art and fashion and people, and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode." Gaga started shooting Monday.
Elizabeth is also bisexual, and will have relationships with Matt, Angela Bassett and Cheyenne Jackson. How steamy!
Ryan said the idea for this season's theme was inspired by a surveillance video from a Los Angeles hotel that surfaced two years ago. In the footage, there was a girl in an elevator who was never seen again. "It is called 'Hotel,' and it's set in a hotel," the producer said, revealing that the season will be set in downtown L.A. "We deal with a lot of American horrors, [including] addiction."
Before those details were revealed, Gaga gave fans a taste of what's to come on Twitter, tweeting a 10-second clip in July that showed a creepy looking had ringing a bell.
