Lady Gaga is all bloody and seductive on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s American Horror Story: Hotel issue.
Here’s what we learned about the upcoming season from the cast/crew:
Ryan Murphy, on how Gaga was cast in the show: “I was at a construction site and my phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number. [I answer and] I hear ‘Please hold for Gaga.’ I think ‘Bad Romance’ was playing [while I was on hold]. Then she got on the phone. At first I thought it was a prank, but we then had a lovely call.” Gaga adds, “I called him and I said, ‘Ryan, I wanna be on Horror Story.’ And he goes, ‘Okay.’ And that was it.”
Kathy Bates, on Gaga’s acting: “We’ve shot one scene together. She walked past me and literally had one line, and it just scared the s— out of me/ She’s really throwing herself in this.”
Ryan, on getting ready to film with Gaga for the first time: “She showed up, and she was wearing diamond pasties, a Band-Aid on her boo-ha, heels and a black veil that Alexander McQueen made for her on the day before his death. Then the crew gasped in delight, and we were off!”
Sarah Paulson, on this season: “There’s something about this season that’s got real heat to it. It’s pulsating. Every season has a different tone or a color. And I think this year for sure would be blood red.”
