The other day when I posted some shit about how Jessica Lange confirmed that yup, she’s done with American Horror Story for now and won’t be checking into Hotel, I mentioned that she was asked about Lady CaCa and it seemed like the temperature in the room dropped a few degrees when the Supreme played the Internet’s favorite sport: shade throwing. The video of that moment is finally here. If you’re feeling a little weak and rundown, just put your hand on the screen after pressing play to get some life in you.
When Jessica Lange was asked, “Does Lady Gaga convince you to stay another season,” she paused for a minute and asked, “What does that mean? I don’t understand the question,” before she rolled her head and smiled to let a trick know to keep it moving. The video may auto-play, so it’s after the cut. Bask in the greatness of Jessica Lange:
She should get an Emmy for that one. The thing about Jessica Lange’s non-answer is that you can interpret it many different ways. You can see it as though she’s thinking to herself that she can’t believe some ho actually thinks she, THEE JESSICA LANGE!!!!, would change her plans just to work with Lady Whatsherface. Or you can take it that she thinks the question should be filed under DUMB and doesn’t want to exert her mouth muscles on answering that mess. Or she’s drunk as fuck. Or all of the above. Jessica Lange is giving you LAYERS.
The only way that clip would be better is if Lea Michele asked the question. Actually, we wouldn’t get a response if Lea asked Jessica that question. Because Jessica would just stare into the air, sip her drink slowly and then quietly say, “Did any of you hear something?”
