Lady Gaga is taking over the silver screen one TV show at a time! The singer, who earned her acting stripes as The Countess on ‘AHS,’ will star as fashion icon Donatella Versace in season 3 of ‘American Crime Story.’ Read all about her new role, here!
Lady Gaga, 30, is one step away from becoming a triple threat! We knew the Joanne album hit-maker could sing, and thanks to her amazing portrayal as The Countess vampire on American Horror Story: Hotel, we know she can act! Obviously we’re not the only ones impressed by her skills, seeing as she’s just been cast as Donatella Versace, 61, for season 3 of American Crime Story.
Season 3 will focus on the story behind the 1997 murder of Donatella’s brother, Gianni, who was shot dead at the age of 50 on the steps of his Miami mansion. Gianni’s death was a very strange occurrence because it was extremely rare to see him in public. Normally, his assistant would run all the errands, but on this day, Gianni was in the chipper mood to get everything done himself. Gianni founded Versace, and left his fashion empire in the hands of Donatella.
Filming for season 3 will begin in 2017, which gives Lady Gaga plenty of time to rest in between her Dive Bar Tour. The “A-Yo” songwriter has been up to her knees with work, traveling across the country, performing on Saturday Night Live and on James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke. She has just one concert left in LA on Nov. 22 before she can finally rest! We honestly can’t wait to see Lady Gaga star as Donatella, especially because she has a SONG named after the fashion empress. The blonde beauties even struck a fierce pose together on the red carpet at the Oscars in 2014. They make a kickass team!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Lady Gaga will embody the spirit of Donatella?
