There's been a lot of hype about the casting of Lady Gaga in American Horror Story: Hotel (the show's fifth season). Co-creator Ryan Murphy is so confident in her performance that he's offered her a role in season six. But, will the ratings live up to expectations? Could this season crash and burn so badly that the series is cancelled by FX? Seems unlikely but stay tuned.
American Horror Story: Hotel revolves around the mysterious Hotel Cortez in Los Angeles. It catches the eye of an intrepid homicide detective (Wes Bentley) and is host to the strange and bizarre. including its a bloodsucking fashionista owner (Gaga). The rest of the cast includes Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Chloë Sevigny, Finn Wittrock, Mare Winningham, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Naomi Campbell, and Max Greenfield.

Lady Gaga's got a thing with her fans. She calls them her little monsters. It's a great fandom nickname, akin to the Kiss Army in terms of recognizability. After all, there's a whole episode of The Simpsons based around Gaga's schtick. It's the worst episode The Simpsons has ever done, but that's not the point. It's a known quantity, and I have no doubt it's been one of the inspirations for Countess's collection of creepy children, alongside The Shining and Village Of The Damned. They're actual little monsters, and she's their mother.
Of course, she's not just their adopted mother, she's the actual mother of at least one child, courtesy of the good butchers at Murder House. That's right, Countess »
FX has ordered the sixth installment of the groundbreaking and award-winning anthology limited series American Horror Story. It was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions. The as-of-yet untitled sixth installment will air on FX in 2016 with the next chapter of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning franchise co-created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. John Landgraf had this to say.
"With the sixth installment coming next year, American Horror Story has unquestionably joined the ranks of television's landmark series. From Murder House to Hotel, Ahs has pioneered a new television form as well becoming FX's highest rated show, while also pushing every conceivable boundary of creative excellence and audacity. This is even more remarkable because Ryan and co-creator Brad Falchuk tear up the playbook every year, challenging the entire creative team to come up with something even more spectacular, frightful and entertaining.

Vampire children run amok among multiple plot-threads in this week's American Horror Story: Hotel episode...
This review contains spoilers.
5.5 Room Service
There's a lot going on in every episode of American Horror Story, and sometimes it makes it difficult to figure out just how to sit down and write a review like this. I mean, when the show is full of plot elements, how can you really focus on one? Last week was easy; a serial killer dinner party is always going to be attention-grabbing, but this week's episode had multiple fun things happening, so I guess I'll just stop waffling and go right to the vampire children.
Alex, the caring nurturer of Holden that she is, has been newly minted as a vampire by Countess Gaga, and she's having a little trouble adjusting. She's woozy, she's room temperature, her Pov shots are all blurry, she's vacant and clammy. »

One of the many things American Horror Story is doing well this season is indulging in genre tropes. March's back story was accompanied by silent movie era film graphics and black and white film stock, and this episode's reveal of the history of Ramona Royale (Angela Bassett) is similarly fun. Rather than the silent era (or perhaps a very early talkie), Ramona is straight out of Quentin Tarantino's daydreams, a honky-blasting, gorgeous blaxploitation movie star supreme, and I mean that literally. Ramona Royale was a big B-movie star in her time, slapping around jive turkeys and sporting a boss baby Afro. It's a fun introduction to the character, who is very much a self-made woman, strong enough and beautiful enough to »
Lady Gaga is pregnant…on the set of American Horror Story: Hotel. Gaga was snapped filming a scene of the FX series for what looks to be a flashback. Then again, we know her character, The Countess, has a love of all things vintage. If this is a flashback, and since this is American Horror Story: Hotel we're talking about, this baby has got to be somebody on the show already. Could it be Chloë Sevigny? Or one of Chloë Sevigny's parents? Is Chloë Sevigny's character The Countess' grandchild? Or maybe Wes Bentley's character is? And then there's Denis O'Hare's Liz Taylor. What's the story there? Or maybe Sarah Paulson's Sally? Blonde hair runs in the family? »

As for his upcoming character on "American Horror Story: Hotel," Wittrock teases, "Who else would I do this hair for besides Ryan Murphy? I'm thinking of it like a mullet meets a mohawk.

Season 5 of FX's American Horror Story, dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel, is the first season that won't feature Emmy-winning actress Jessica Lange, who starred in the first four seasons. Instead, this season will feature none other than hit recording artist Lady Gaga in her first TV series as Elizabeth. You can get a glimpse of this enigmatic character in a new trailer for the upcoming season. The trailer showcases a number of mysterious areas of the title hotel, set to the 1990s heavy metal hit "Du Hast" by the German band Rammstein.
Last week, FX debuted another trailer that featured Lady Gaga's Elizabeth sporting some incredibly long hair, but we don't see any super-long locks in this trailer. There is very little we know about her character, or any of the other characters, for that matter, but we'll find out about these hotel inhabitants when American Horror Story: Hotel debuts next month on FX. »
