Actor Jessica Lange is very good at doing little to say a lot about her peers, and that, my friends, is shade. Take, for example, the time that she steamrolled over Lea Michele on a red carpet, visibly crushing Michele's heart in the process. Wasn't that fun? Lange was back up to her old tricks this week at Paleyfest when discussing her departure from American Horror Story and Lady Gaga's signing onto the series. Lange's showing makes it clear that we may be losing a key AHS player, but more importantly, we're gaining a Shade Supreme.
At this point in Lady Gaga's career, she has begun transitioning from spicy pop tart in a meat suit to subdued Barbara Streisand ballad-singer, and when she was called in to a perform a medley of Sound of Music staples in the stead of Julie Andrews, she did not disappoint. In fact, she sounded amazing. A real stunner.
