The already supremely talented Lady Gaga can add a new line to her resume (or whatever it is pop divas have. LinkedIn for the Stars?). Gaga’s a full-fledged actress now and a pretty good one based on the clips of her in the Machete Kills trailer.

“Straight up or with some flare,” Gaga coos during the trailer, oozing a deadly kind of sexy as La Chameléon, a vampy actress who knows her way around a gun.

When she made the big announcement back in July 2012, Gaga seemed completely thrilled by the opportunity, tweeting: “Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.”

Now more than a year later, Gaga’s ready to grace the silver screen. “It's the premiere or [stet] MACHETE KILLS tonight my first acting gig! Can't wait for you to see it. #RodriguezDameForLife,” she tweeted October 2.

As an extra blood-spattered cherry on top of this gory-looking sundae, we get a listen to Gaga’s next single “Aura” during the Machete Kills preview. The song is as throaty and creepy and wonderful as we could hope from Mother Monster.

A lyric video for “Aura” is due out October 8, just three days before Machete Kill hits theaters on October 11. Then, exactly a month later on November 11, Gaga’s latest album, ARTPOP, is set to drop.
