As usual, very little is known about Season 5 of "American Horror Story." But now Sarah Paulson has dropped one possible clue about "AHS: Hotel."

The "AHS" regular, who Ryan Murphy announced would play "the baddest bad girl of them all," told The Wrap that she's hoping to play a villain for the first time. “I’ve never played any villain on the show," Paulson said, "So perhaps there’s going to be an element on bad, bad girl."

Last month, rumors began circulating about "Hotel" characters after an IMDb user posted a breakdown claiming Paulson was portraying Janis Joplin. Paulson was quick to shoot down the rumor with The Wrap. “I would love that," Paulson said, "That would be amazing, but no, I am not doing that.”

So far, we officially know "Hotel" will also star Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. While the plot for the new season has yet to be revealed, we have our theories.

"American Horror Story: Hotel" premieres in October on FX.
