Pop star turned actress Lady Gaga will make an appearance on the Late Show tonight to discuss her new movie, House of Gucci.
Gaga plays the cold-hearted female protagonist, Patrizia Reggiani, in the new Ridley Scott film about the family at the heart of the Italian fashion house that became embroiled in a murder scandal.
Reggiani was dubbed the ‘black widow’ for orchestrating the murder of her husband, Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of the founder of fashion house Guccio Gucci, in March 1995.
Showing her dedication to the role, Gaga has been method acting for the duration of the production – a whole year and a half spent, on and off camera, inside the murderous mind of the once glamorous Italian socialite.
"Lady Gaga is a pop-cultural phenomenon, whatever she turns her hand to seems to shine from the Grammys to her Oscar, she is a fascinating mega-star. I cannot wait to talk to her." Tubridy said.
More musical talent is among Friday's guests, as Boyzone’s Ronan Keating will come on for a chat about his new album Songs from Home.
He is expected to touch on his emotional reaction to returning to his native Ireland, and will take the stage alongside his wife Storm for a special performance.
Former President Mary McAleese will discuss her new documentary, With God on Our Side, where she explores the role of religion in driving and resolving conflict in Northern Ireland.
She will also speak about united Ireland, and why she believes it’s on its way.
Football analysts Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady will come on to discuss Ireland’s World Cup qualifying campaign, which is coming to a close this weekend.
Finally, Orlaith McBride will come on, bringing with her a bundle of items from the National Archives relating to the Anglo-Irish Treaty, which occurred 100 years ago this year.
The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One, on Friday, 12 November, and will start at 9:35pm.
