Hail the Countess (and out of the way, Leo)! Gaga gets a Golden Globe!

More often than not, when you have a celebrity from the world of music cross over into films or TV, you get an embarrassing train wreck of a performance. Think Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child in FREDDY VERSUS JASON. Think of Will Smith in the first season of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR. (Granted, he got a whole lot better. Eventually.) Think about Prince in PURPLE RAIN, bless his purple little heart. (We won’t even mention GRAFFITI BRIDGE.) When Lady Gaga got cast in the current season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL, could any of us have predicted anything but the same kind of thespianic epic fail from her? (I’m not sure if “thespianic” is a real word, but it should be. And Shakespeare made up his own words, so there.) Could anybody have predicted that she would actually be GOOD?

She sure surprised us, didn’t she? As the blood-slurpin’ Countess of the hit FX series, Gaga is so convincing it’s easy to forget she’s just a pop star. Doesn’t seem quite fair when a person can be so gifted in music—and she is, whether one cares for her STYLE of music or doesn’t—and also be graced with acting chops. Maybe she is a real vampire, after all, drawing upon centuries of life—and practice—to develop all those mad skills. Congrats on your Golden Globe win, Countess.
