In honor of tonight’s highly anticipated premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel, Lady Gaga sat down with E! News for an exclusive interview, highlighting her feeling of deep isolation and how AHS actually saved her. The main thing she wants people to know is that she’s a real person with real emotions.
Gaga started off by saying, “I do know isolation because I’m famous and it’s hard to go be normal all the time.” She continued, “And when you meet people in public, 99 percent of the time, people aren’t that interested in really getting to know me. There’s sort of a wall between us that they think something of me that I’m not. I’m really just a human being that makes this…stuff.”
“I’m happier than I’ve ever been now because the people that I work with really, really care that my life is different and really, really work to make sure that I feel as normal as possible—so that I can have a great time and just be a normal girl, and just be a woman for Ryan on film, or you know… [laughs] a hemophiliac.”
Gaga’s character on AHS: Hotel is a 100-year-old woman called The Countess and she lives for intense group sex and blood, due to her hemophiliac “virus.” It’s no secret that Gaga will absolutely kill it in this role and she’s been preparing nonstop to fully embody The Countess. She told E! News, “I was like, ‘I’m just going to go to set and I’m going to know my lines perfectly, but not too perfectly that I can’t keep it loose and live in it. And I’m going to really read the f–k out of these scripts, over and over and over, 10 times each at least.'”
