Mother Monster: Lady Gaga lands role in American Horror Story: Hotel

Lady Gaga may have looked angelic whilst performing at the Oscars on Sunday night, but we all know that she’s a little monster at heart. It seems only fitting then that she’s landed a role in the upcoming series of American Horror Story. The producers have been tight-lipped about the fifth season of the popular FX show, merely revealing that the title will be American Horror Story: Hotel.

The star took to Twitter to share the news, posting a black and white video of herself in a mask and body cover, revealing her face as she says the name of the upcoming season. It’s not known what role Gaga has, but with Jessica Lange supposedly having quit the show, there’s room for another big player.

Speaking to E! News last year, Lange said, "You know, I told him that we would sit down and have a long conversation when this was over. In a way this character is so great, I don't know how you top Elsa Mars. I really—in deference to Ryan, who I love dearly and who I respect beyond—I have no idea at this point." However, after the finale of the fourth season aired on January 21, co-creator Ryan Murphy hinted that she was gone for good, tweeting, "Thank you Jessica...for everything. Always."

American Horror Story has previously been set in a haunted house, a 1960s asylum, a witches' coven and, most recently, a travelling freakshow in mid-century America. And whilst the location for season five has yet to be revealed, eagle-eyed viewers have suggested clues from the last series suggest that it will have something to do with Area 51 in America, rumoured to be a top-secret alien testing site.

Just like the very first season, FX CEO John Landgraf recently revealed that Hotel would be set in the present day. "That’s my hope, yeah," he said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast. I think there’s going to be an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 [Coven] and 4 [Freak Show].”

It has been suggested that Gaga has been brought onboard to help with the shows dire viewing figures. Slammed universally by critics and viewers worldwide, season four may have premiered with about 10 million viewers but the finale only attracted 3.2 million.

But Gaga is certainly no gimmick. The star is said to have been given a recurring role in the upcoming series and already has an impressive resume, showing off her acting skills in the likes of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Machete Kills and The Sopranos.

American Horror Story: Hotel is slated to air in October.

5 More Killer Firefox Addons for Designers

If you compare the way you use your computer today with how you used it, let’s say 10 years ago, you will probably notice a big difference, even if you essentially still do the same tasks with it. Applications replace Software and Add-Ons replace Stand Alone Programs.

It’s obvious, we are doing a majority of our work in our browser. Even designers can utilize free photoshop alternatives which are completely web based, without ever leaving their beloved browser. Extensions and Add-Ons enhance this experience also, by turning your web browser into a real hub. Mozilla Firefox is one of the browsers which can offer you very powerful assets of tools, if it’s used right.

Whether if it’s Web Design, UX, UI, Typography or anything else; some of Mozilla’s Firefox Web Browser’s strong points lie in it’s broad selection of available add-ons.

BlackBerry has a pleasant surprise for Android users: a partnership with Samsung will bring better Android security by coupling its BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) 12 mobility management platform with Samsung's business-centered Knox security system.

In a move that raised eyebrows, BlackBerry CEO John Chen announced at the company's enterprise event in San Francisco on Nov. 13 that it is working with Samsung, the very company that brought the Canadian smartphone maker to its knees, to deliver more secure mobility solutions for enterprises running on Android.

The partnership will provide Samsung's business clients using its Knox suite of secure work applications with an additional layer of security by having Knox run on BlackBerry's BES12 server.

"People probably didn't expect to see these two companies on the same stage, at least not willingly," says John Sims, BlackBerry's head of enterprises services. "We need to be abl…

Jessica Lange Is Definitely Done With American Horror Story But Look Who's Checking in...

Good news and bad news, American Horror Story fans.

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).
