Fall TV Preview

American Horror Story Video: Lady Gaga Terrorizes Children in New Hotel Promo

A new promo for American Horror Story: Lady Gaga Hotel has hit the interwebs, shedding new light on the pop star’s creepy character — while simultaneously introducing about 100 new questions.

Ominously titled “Above and Below,” this new promo finds leading lady Elizabeth bouncing between two different environments: The first is a light, fashion-centric room reminiscent of one of Lady Gaga‘s music videos. The other is a dark, twisted underworld in which Elizabeth appears to be feeding off the souls of children. (OK, I guess they’re both reminiscent of Gaga videos.)

We still don’t know much about Gaga’s Elizabeth yet, aside from her being the owner of the Hotel Cortez and the ex-lover of Angela Bassett’s Ramona Royale, so the season premiere (Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c on FX) should prove very enlightening.

Hit PLAY on the video above, then drop a comment below with your best guess of what the Falchuk is going on here.

    They’re really overselling it on the fact that Lady Gaga is in this season. I dunno about anyone else, but that’s a huge turnoff for me. I mean, I’ve got no problem that she’s in this at all, but geez, calm down on the overpromotion.

    Nice use of Rammstein in the teaser, though.

      THANK YOU for ID-ing the song/band. :)

      I’m fine with Lady Gaga being in it, but I was getting that feeing too. I swore that hallway promo said American Horror Story: Lady Gaga before going back to Hotel which worried me (at least don’t try to make it look like stunt casting). I just hope it’s not going to be all musical numbers (Freak Show went a little overboard last season).

      • Bryan says:

        Ryan Murphy said no musical numbers in Hotel ;)

          I never take anything RM says at face value. He originally said that Sarah Paulson’s character was a pure villain this season. Now he’s changed to say she’s a “broken ragdoll”, which insinuates a tragic backstory and we should feel bad for her. Things change as the wind blows between his ears.

            Kind of like, Twisty will be the big bad all season. (Dead by episode 4) All seasons would be a continuation of the first (Season 1), There will be a spinoff of cover (Season 3). He says whatever at the time and does something else. lol

          • Lucifer says:

            He did the same thing with Glee. It’s like he doesn’t realize he’s in an interview and not a meeting with his writing team.

  2. I’ll take your word for it…

    I have no problems with Lady Gaga being on the show. I’m actually looking forward to it. But I wanna see a promo with the other characters already. That hallway one doesn’t cut it. Matt Bomer is who I’m most looking forward to seeing. I wanna see promos with Sarah Paulson and Angela Bassett too. Come on, put out the real promo already. The show premeire is in like 3 weeks.

    Didn’t seem like a promo, but just a normal Lady Gaga music video.They’re over selling it.

  5. Radha says:

    I have to agree. I have no problem with Lady Gaga being on the show this season, but if it ends up being this weird season of more of what I just saw above, I’m probably not going to be pleased. None of that above was *scary* and that is what American Horror Story should be. Scary.

    Lady Gaga’s character sounds intriguing enough, but they should keep promos about her subtle, ease us into a dawning sense of dread about her. She should be striking fear in us, but that promo above makes me think we’re at an 80’s themed club. I am not watching this season to see Lady Gaga on screen as herself. I want to see her as an actual character and hope all this nonsense is just a misguided attempt at luring viewers in. Plus they should show the other characters in promos more as well. Like what even happened to Evan Peters? Because I sure haven’t seen him at all in the promos, nor have I seen any mention of his character. Is he in just a bit part this year?

    But I’ll wait until the season starts to make a fair judgment.

  6. TVLine is my go to on tv gossip but I hate the videos started to be “unavailable” in your country :( Now I actually have to go google a normal video, cant you make me happy again?

    I haven’t seen it on tvline at all but I read it is US Weekly (so not sure if it’s correct) that Lady Gaga’s character is a SPOILER
