Lady Gaga Wins Golden Globe, Teases New Album
After her 'American Horror Story' acting win, Gaga says she's "putting out an album this year"
Already a winner of multiple Grammys, VMAs, People’s Choice Awards, and just about every music-related prize you could contemplate, Lady Gaga now has some acting hardware to add to her trophy mantle. The woman born Stefani Germanotta won her first Golden Globe at last night’s Ricky Gervais-hosted awards. Not even a “Best Song From,” either — Gaga won for Best Actress, Miniseries or Television Film for her role as 115-year-old vampire Elizabeth (“The Countess”) on American Horror Story: Hotel, beating out more conventional acting luminaries as Kirsten Dunst, Felicity Huffman, and fellow recording-artist-turned-thespian Queen Latifah. (“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film Moonstruck right now, this is one of the greatest moments of my life,” Gaga said onstage.)
Good news for fans worldwide, but perhaps not the best of the night. According to Billboard, backstage after her win, Gaga told reporters “You know, I am putting out an album this year. I won’t tell you when.” As good a sign as any that nearly a half decade since Stefani reached her cultural saturation point with Born This Way and its surrounding promotional campaign, 2016 could finally be the year Mother Monster reclaims her perch atop pop music.
