Lady Gaga confirmed her return to FX’s American Horror Story for Season 6 in an interview on Z100 radio on Friday, according to a report from Vanity Fair. Gaga won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her performance as the vampire countess in last year’s Hotel season of American Horror Story. Lady Gaga wasn’t able to do any more than confirm her return to the anthology series.
“I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that. Ryan will kill me if I tease anything.”
Fans have known since October that American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy had asked Gaga to return for Season 6 and had high hopes that she would do so. He tweeted this back on October 6.
Lady Gaga is so brilliant in AHS Season 5 that yesterday I officially asked her to join Season 6. Say yes @ladygaga!— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) October 6, 2015
Lady Gaga retweeted Murphy’s appeal to return to Season 6 of American Horror Story and fans became hopeful. Those fans are rejoicing at the confirmation from this recent confirmation from the Lady herself. Still, we’re curious about what role Gaga will play in the new episodes of AHS. As an anthology series, American Horror Story has other actors who have reappeared in various seasons but in different roles. Jessica Lange has played Constance Langdon (Murder House), Elsa Mars (Freak Show), Fiona Goode (Coven), and Sister Jude Martin (Asylum). Kathy Bates has also appeared in multiple roles. Viewers are as eager to know the theme of Season 6 of American Horror Story as they are to know the role Lady Gaga will likely hit out of the park.
Here are some clips of some of her delectable scenes from last season of AHS – Hotel.
Lady Gaga is amazing in American Horror Story, as she seems to be in everything she tries. She won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album in 2015 for Cheek to Cheek, an album she made with Tony Bennett. Gaga has won 10 other awards and has been nominated for 38.
Lady Gaga’s most recent nomination is for a song she co-wrote with Diane Warren. The name of the song is Til It Happens To You. Gaga earned a Best Original Song Oscar nomination for the song that was used in the documentary titled The Hunting Ground. The documentary is about rape on college campuses and the survivors of those rapes. Lady Gaga brought the 2016 Oscar show audience to tears in her live performance. Check it out below.
Sexual assault is an issue that is close to Lady Gaga’s heart, as she has stated she was raped at the age of 19. In her heart-wrenching Oscar performance, survivors of sexual assaults stood on stage, hands clasped, with tattoos on their arms that testified to their survival. Huffington Post has reported that Lady Gaga recently got a similar tattoo in an act intended to show her solidarity with the survivors. Her tattoo is the outline of a rose on fire. She had it done on her left shoulder. In a Snapchat Gaga explained that she made a pact with the other survivors at Thursday’s rehearsal. She shared the experience of tattoo artist David Allen giving her the tattoo on Snapchat as The Beatles’ song Come Together played in the background.
Besides American Horror Story, Lady Gaga has 17 acting credits to her name dating back to 2001. Among her acting credits are an appearance on The Simpsons in 2012 and multiple video appearances including her own Marry the Night, Judas, Born This Way, and Telephone. Among her producing credits, she was executive producer of Great Performances’ Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek. Gaga also has six directing credits as well as credits for writing and composing.
