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.

Taylor Swift Unhappy After Princeton Review Misquotes Her Lyrics in SAT Test Paper

The popstar of several multi-million dollar hits and multi-million dollarlegs, Taylor Swift is not one to be messed with. The Princeton Review found that out the hard way after they published Tay Tay's lyrics as an example of bad grammar on a SAT practice test.

To be fair, they were trying to make the point that pop songs are where grammar goes to die and also cited other pop singers such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kesha.

The fiercely loyal Tay Tay fans were not likely to let this go by and Tumblr user Nava who was apparently having ' an amazing time studying for SAT' when she spotted this, posted a snapshot with the caption, " .... it isn't a pop song it's a country pop song so take that Princeton review Taylor is grammar queen so shhhhhh.."

Unluckily for the Princeton Review however they misquoted the lyrics of the song Fifteen. The question paper wanted students to grammatically correct, "Somebody tells you they love you, …

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).

Apple's New MacBook Is Almost a Tablet

The new MacBook is an iPad with a keyboard. That may be the best description of the new Apple laptop design, based on Apple’s launch event on Monday. At a mere 13 millimeters thick and weighing just two pounds, it approaches the iPad’s portability and is just as spartan, sporting only a solitaryconnector.
