Lady Gaga Joins the Fifth Installment of 'American Horror Story'

After her amazing performance at this year's Oscar's, Lady Gaga is on fire...more than usual. Now it's been confirmed that she will be a regular cast member of the fifth series of FX's American Horror Story. The details about the season are lacking but she just took to Twitter and revealed the title.

In the creepy promo (click here) in which she urges us to "Make your reservation now," she rips off her black mask and whispers, "Hotel." Vague. Not as catchy as title such as "Asylum" or "Freak Show," but we'll have to wait and see. It probably won't be your standard Holiday Inn.

Recently, the CEO of FX Networks, John Landgraf revealed that season five will be "very different" than the previous installments and, "One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast. I think there's going to be an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 [Coven] and 4 [Freak Show]."

I think the Mother Monster will make a splendidly creepy addition to the season. Reviews have been pretty mixed on "Freak Show" so maybe a new direction is just the thing AHS needs. Of course, it also needs Jessica Lange so they better get on that. Fingers and toes crossed but last season was supposedly her last. The series will return in October.

 We'll keep you posted on any new developments.
