Lady Gaga is starring in American Horror Story's next season

Mother Monster will be the new lead of Ryan Murphy's schlock-horror show

A few days after her Sound of Music showtunes extravaganza at the Oscars, Lady Gaga is taking her reinvention one step further with a starring role on the next season of American Horror Story, titled American Horror Story: Hotel. The FX series will be Gaga's first ever big TV role, Variety reports.

Details of Gaga's character are being kept under wraps for now. Executive producer Ryan Murphy has already had huge success with the schlocky, gore-filled horror show. Last season's American Horror Story: Freak Show broke FX ratings records, drawing 10 million viewers to its premiere. The fifth season has been picked up for 13 episodes and will reportedly connect the dots between all the past four seasons.

If you haven't been watching American Horror Story, trust us when we say that it is possibly the weirdest genre show on mainstream television. So far, Murphy has gleefully tackled everything from lunatic asylums, aliens, Kathy Bates in a beard, possessed nuns, killer angels, two-headed women and a witch heavily inspired by Grace Coddington. To say that the show errs on "excessive" is somewhat of an understatement. So who knows what Murphy has in store for Gaga?
