Lady Gaga Stars in ‘Machete Kills’ — No, For Real
No, your eyes are not broken. Yes, you are still literate. This information is accurate. Robert Rodriguez announced via his Twitter today:

And according to the fancy new poster for Gaga's character La Chameleon (we see what you did there), that Rodriguez has a punny sense of humor. Smokes. Blown away. You know, because there's smoke and she has a gun and, well, you get it.
Anyway, Gaga's character isn't a major player, just an extravagant cameo for the pop songstress, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta. She joins returning cast members Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jessica Alba, as well as new players Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, and Alexa Vega (you can check out her character's look via her Instagram and ComingSoon). Also on board: scandalous duo Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson. So really, Lady Gaga isn't the weirdest thing on set.
This time around Machete is on the hunt for an evil arms dealer who's gotten his hands on a lethal missile and intends to use it for some not-so-nice things... presumably. Because who uses missiles to cure cancer or launch a billion kittens to the middle east? Let's all take a moment to imagine a world in which missiles are used to spread baby animals and joy. That's nice.
