The problem with reporting on rumors is that it sometimes requires us to follow-up with disappointing clarifications. Such is the case with our Saturday announcement that Lady Gaga had officially been retained for the latest, election-themed season of American Horror Story. Despite claims made by Twitter user AHS Leaks, Entertainment Weekly dropped some truth just a couple hours ago.

Of course, whether this news is disappointing depends on your personal opinion of Lady Gaga, her acting abilities, and her contributions to past AHS Chapters Hotel and Roanoke. Personally, I won’t be shedding tears over Gaga’s absence. Give me Jessica Lange over the popstar any day!
If you are disappointed by Gaga’s omission, perhaps you can take comfort from an exciting bit of concept art AHS showrunner Ryan Murphy shared via Instagram; it features a truly demonic entity with a pentagram smeared across her face and hands protruding from her forehead like horns. I love it!
To date, the only cast members for AHS Season 7 that we can confirm are: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billy Eichner, Billie Lourd, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter, Colton Haynes and Leslie Grossman. We’ll keep you posted on additional AHS Season 7 news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
