Lady Gaga Joins “American Horror Story”

Fresh in minds thanks to her “Sound of Music” medley performance at the Oscars on the weekend, Lady Gaga has followed it up with an unexpected announcement.

Variety reports that the singer is set to star in the upcoming fifth season of FX’s anthology series “American Horror Story,” which would mark her first major TV gig.

No details about Gaga’s character have been revealed, the title and theme of the next season have been kept quiet though clues about it have been scattered throughout the recently finished fourth season. Then, shortly after this news broke, Gaga and Ryan Murphy posted tweets confirming the new season’s subtitle will be ‘Hotel’.

That fourth season, “Freak Show,” broke ratings records and was the most-watched telecast in FX history. The fifth season is slated to premiere in October.
