Lady Gaga transforms into her "American Horror Story: Hotel" character, The Countess, for the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly. In the shot, the platinum star appears in a white ensemble with a bloody neck and black, taloned hand.
Gaga will make her "AHS" debut in Season 5 as The Countess and owner of Hotel Cortez. She is a glamorous socialite with a hunger for love and sex, who maintains her looks by drinking human blood.
“I’ve just been weeping while I’m here because I have returned to something I’ve believed in so much, which is the art of darkness,” she told EW. “It’s not something that everyone understands, but, for the people that do -- 'Horror Story' fans, my fans -- there is a true connection between us, and it’s a language within itself.”
The first photos of Gaga on set surfaced last week while the cast was filming outside of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
