The lovechild of Gaga, Versace and American TV

Lady Gaga has some flashy boots to fill with her latest acting role in the third season of Ryan Murphy’s American TV series, American Crime Story.

The “Bad Romance” singer is set to play the role of Donatella Versace, as the 10-episode series tells the story of her brother and fashion designer, Gianni Versace’s murder.

The previous series told the story of the OJ Simpson case starring David Schwimmer (as Robert Kardashian) and Cuba Gooding Jr. (as OJ Simpson).

This series is based on Maureen Orth’s book, Vulgar Favours which was about the designers death in July, 1977. He was murdered by serial killer Andrew Cunanan who killed at least five people including the iconic designer.

Gaga is said to be “the perfect Donatella” which is unsurprising because of her close ties with the Italian designer, both personally and professionally. The pair have seen the pair walking the 2016 Met Gala together, and the singer was the face of the Versace’s S/S14  campaign. Their friendship even saw the inspiration for Gaga’s 2013 hit, Donatella. Not to mention their resemblance is uncanny.

The series is set to begin production early next year.
