The Countess. Is. Slaying. Lady Gaga promoted her new role on Oct. 7, but posting a BTS picture of her on the set of ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ — wearing nothing but blood.
The countdown to The Countess is almost done — American Horror Story begins on Oct. 7 and you guys, it’s scary, and Lady Gaga is freaking amazing. Before the episode, she took to Instagram to share quite the revealing look at her character — cigarette, stockings, blood and all.
“It’s showtime. #ahshotel TONIGHT,” Gaga captioned the photo on her Instagram page. In it, she’s sitting down completely topless, wearing just stockings, smoking a cigarette and flipping off the camera. Naturally, there’s blood all over her.
We know that she’ll be playing The Countess, and will be taking on a really sexy, really powerful and well, really scary owner of Hotel Cortez. We know she has relationships with both Angela Bassett and Matt Bomer‘s characters. “She’s a wealthy social doyenne. She’s consumed with art and fashion and people, and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode,” Ryan Murphy said at TCA this summer.
The premiere will feature a very steamy scene between Gaga and Matt right away — in the first two minutes — and you guys, it is hot, hot, hot. “I think she’s sexy,” Ryan told E! about the Gaga. “And I think she and Matt Bomer and she and Finn Wittrock are sexy.” Yes, she’s pretty much with everyone on the show, and we’re not sad about it. Ryan also added that “there’s a lot of group sex happening on the show.”
Of course, since it is Horror Story, there will also be a TON of blood — even more than past seasons. “It’s scarier, and bloodier. We’ve never done a bloodier or, I feel, in-your-face season,” Ryan added. “This season, after five episodes, we’ve gone through a full seasons worth [of fake blood,]. We are doubling down on the gore.” Alright, who else is excited? Do you think that Gaga’s going to wow you? Tune into AHS: Hotel on FX every Wednesday at 10PM.
