Lady Gaga to star in 'American Horror Story;' prepare yourselves Little Monsters!

Lady Gaga is to star in the fifth installment of FX's hit "American Horror Story"

Prepare yourself, Little Monsters. Your leader is about to bring her special brand of scary to prime time.

Lady Gaga, the chameleon-like rock star who has boosted her career by crooning with Tony Bennett, will star in the fifth installment of FX's "American Horror Story," producers announced Wednesday.

No details were immediately available on her role or the premise of the latest installment of the limited series, which is set to premiere its next season in October. The franchise changes locations and storylines each season. 

The announcement came just a few days after Gaga set the twitttersphere on fire with her sweeping performance of songs from "The Sound of Music" at the Oscars ceremony. She is also scheduled to go on tour with Bennett during the coming months.

Perhaps she caught the acting bug from her fiance, Taylor Kinney, who stars in NBC's "Chicago Fire."

Gaga is not the first rocker to bring star power to "American Horror Story," which is executive produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Stevie Nicks also made her acting debut on the series.
