Lady Gaga Only Wore Pasties & A Band-Aid For Crazy AHS: Hotel Sex Scene

No matter how hot and steamy they may appear on-screen, scripted sex scenes are notoriously unsexy behind-the-scenes (cough, vagina patch, cough) — unless you're Lady Gaga. The singer-turned-television-star recently filmed a pretty crazy-sounding sex scene for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel while wearing nothing but diamond pasties and a Band-Aid, and she couldn't have been happier about it, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"I walked in on my first day and I was like, 'I am going to give all of myself,'" Gaga told the magazine, and oh did she ever. While filming the over-the-top sex scene — a rather bloody foursome between Gaga, who plays the Hotel Cortez’s Countess, co-star Matt Bomer, who plays the Countess' long-time lover Donovan, and two actors who end up with their throats slashed at the end of the illicit tryst — EW describes Gaga as going "positively gonzo," writhing "around on the bed like a famished animal” during filming and then cheering for Bomer to “Stab! Feed!” during his solo takes.

"She’s the only actress I think I’ve worked with who wanted to do more explicit stuff than was written,” confessed the show's creator, Ryan Murphy. “You write a foursome for her and you expect a lot of questions. She never did that. She showed up and she was wearing diamond pasties, a Band-Aid on her hoo-ha, heels, and a black veil that Alexander McQueen made for her on the day before his death. Then the crew gasped in delight and we were off!”

Lady Gaga, as always, you sound like a damn good time. We'll definitely be watching this fall — and keeping our fingers crossed for a new album in the meantime.
