Lady Gaga said she felt alive, like her­self on ‘AHS’ TV show

The China Post - - ARTS - BY MARCELA ISAZA

Ap­pear­ing in the new sea­son of “Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story” was a life boost for Lady Gaga.

The singer raved about her ex­pe­ri­ence on “Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story: Ho­tel” as she ar­rived for the star-stud­ded pre­miere of the FX show on Satur­day night.

With fiance Tay­lor Kin­ney as her date, Lady Gaga said the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing Countess El­iz­a­beth, who runs the Ho­tel Cortez, made her feel alive.

“It’s been so fun,” said Lady Gaga, who ar­rived fash­ion­ably late in a red gown with a thigh­high slit.

“Ev­ery­body on this cast has been re­ally open and avail­able to me in a very hon­est way, so I’m able to be my­self in a way I feel like I haven’t been in a re­ally long time, so they are just mak­ing me feel so alive,” Lady Gaga said.

She called the fifth in­stall­ment of the Emmy-win­ning show a mas­ter­piece and praised ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and co-cre­ator Ryan Mur­phy.

“I’m just re­ally happy to be a part of it. I like be­ing a part of some­one else’s vi­sion it’s re­ally ex­hil­a­rat­ing,” she added.

Lady Gaga en­deared her­self to the cast. Matt Bomer said some of her fel­low ac­tors called her by her given first name (her real name is Ste­fani Ger­man­otta).

“it’s sort of takes the mythos and all the pre­con­cep­tions of Lady Gaga out of the equa­tion so we can just re­late to each other like hu­man be­ings and ac­tors in a scene,” ex­plained Bomer.

“She’s so ap­proach­able that she to­tally just was there for us ... at by the time the cam­eras were rolling and we were in a scene to­gether, we weren’t think­ing about the fact that you were do­ing a scene with Lady Gaga.”

De­nis O’Hare spilled juicy de­tails about the su­per ex­clu­sive bash Lady Gaga threw for the cast, which in­cludes reg­u­lars like An­gela Bas­sett, Sarah Paul­son, and Kathy Bates.

“She had a pool; she dyed it blood red,” said O’Hare. “She had bathing suits for all of us. I jumped right in. I wore a woman’s bathing suit at one point. She had a mas­sive amount of food for us.”

Be­ing Lady Gaga, there was also some sauci­ness in­volved.

“She had a half-naked bar­tender for some of us it was an in­cred­i­ble party and it was just us, so it was com­fort­able and we all got to know each other,” he said. “She got a birth­day cake for An­gela. I can’t de­scribe it. It was an ob­scene birth­day cake, it was shock­ing ac­tu­ally.”

Su­per­model Naomi Camp­bell is among the new ad­di­tions to the show. Camp­bell, who also ap­pears on “Em­pire,” said the role came about when Ryan of­fered her a role over din­ner. Up un­til Satur­day night the cast wasn’t able to dis­cuss any­thing about the new sea­son. The Bri­tish su­per­model said keep­ing hush hush was re­ally easy for her.

“It’s never been my thing of speak­ing be­fore some­thing hap­pens,” she said. “I kind of find that bad luck.”
