It’s been revealed that Perfect Illusion singer Lady Gaga will play Donatella Versace in new third series American Crime Story.
The show, which previously aired hit ‘The People Vs. OJ Simpson’ has already wrapped filming on series two, and is now looking to film series three.
The series will focus on the murder of fashion mogul Donatella’s brother Gianni, with Lady Gaga set to walk a mile in another fashionista’s shoes, playing Donatella.
Gianni Versace, who founded the world famous House of Versace, was shot and killed outside his Miami Beach home in 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan.
Eight days after killing Gianni, Andrew ended his reign of terror by committing suicide on board a houseboat – by which time he had killed five people.
US Weekly reported that the show bosses are eager to get Gaga on board due to her likeness and bond with Donatella, and Variety stated that the series will focus on the Versace murder.
Gaga is close with Donatella after fronting Versace’s advertising campaign in 2014 and releasing a song on her previous album ARTPOP titled Donatella with lyrics “Cause she walks so bad, like it feels so good, listen to her radiate her magic”.
The new series of American Horror Story will air in the new year.
Lady Gaga’s new album Joanne is out now.
