Lady Gaga won’t be the only star appearing in American Horror Story: Hotel, the next 5th season of the Emmy-award winning TV show: Naomi Campbell will also be checking in.

Not only will the supermodel be playing a fashion editor, reminiscent of her role in Empire, but she’ll be going toe-to-toe with the “Bad Romance” singer across multiple episodes.

Cambell will start shooting next week and will apparently pay “the ultimate price for her critiques,” so TVLine reports. She will be joining the likes of Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer and Max Greenfield – of New Girl’s Schmidt fame – on the show.

Bassett has previously appeared on the show as the three-breasted woman Desiree Dupree in American Horror: Freak Show, and voodoo queen Marie Laveau in the third season, Coven.


While the plot details surrounding AHS: Hotel remain sketchy, it was partly inspired by 1935 musical comedy film Top Hat which is set in a hotel.

In an interview with Deadline, creator Ryan Murphy said that it will be “a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before; it’s straight horror this year.”

At Comic-Con earlier this year it was also revealed that characters from previous seasons would also be checking into the hotel, confirming that each season is connected somehow.

Filming of AHS: Hotel started on 14 July, with the show scheduled to premier October later this year.
