Lady Gaga says her sexy scenes are "an opportunity to be fearless."
"I'm just so happy to be here and I feel really honored to be part of such a talented cast," Gaga told reporters at the event.
Gaga was accompanied by fiancé Taylor Kinney, saying "I'm so happy that he's here. He's just been really supportive and teaching me everything that I could ever learn about TV."
The reviews are in:
E! News said, "Sophisticated, sexy and scary as hell. In. So In. And Lady Gaga is fantastic. The first scene with Gaga and Matt Bomer might be my favorite so far of the entire series. Terrifying and jaw-dropping."
Buzzfeed raved: "Loved the premiere and I feel like we've only seen the tip of this insane iceberg. Gaga is everything you want and more, Paulson rocked my world, there's a murder tableau that rivals Seven and Matt Bomer has never been sexier -- and I've done the research."
Another outlet added (via Gaga Daily): "I have two words to say about the first episode of American Horror Story: Lady Gaga."
American Horror Story: Hotel premieres Wednesday at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.
