American Horror Story Season 5 raises Lady Gaga to the heights

Written by

With just over a week to go before the Season 5 premiere of American Horror Story, FX producers are finally cutting to the chase by letting us know that 'Hotel' is really all about Lady Gaga. And the latest promo image below proves it!

Lady Gaga is the Countess Owner of 'Hotel' Cortez, but we all know she's really the goddess and raison d'être of American Horror Story Season 5, come to answer Ryan Murphy's prayers for better ratings. Like a winged victory or Venus from the waves, she rises from the depths of Hotel to grace her presence upon FX like blood marks on her unbrushed canines. "I prefer the term ‘ancient blood virus,'" Murphy says of Gaga's syndrome. "It’s not vampires. It’s really a form of hemophilia in a way. There’s no capes and fangs." And this isn't just your everyday grandmama's hemophilia she indulges while crocheting. There's ritual involved, and judging from previous looks inside Season 5's "dirty, bloody" Hotel, this little infanticide pool Gaga's hovering over is the navel of her sanguine church.

There's only one week left until the Season 5 debut of American Horror Story on Wednesday, October 7, when we will find out Gaga's "nefarious plan" that "plays out over the course of the season," as Ryan Murphy previously teased. Then we'll have our first real look inside American Horror Story Season 5's Hotel and the waifs and outcasts that people it and feed the Countess's ego, and most likely her blood thirst as well. Until then, all hail the Goddess Queen Countess of Hotel. Do you love Lady Gaga as much as Ryan Murphy does?
