Lady Gaga is set to appear on the Season 9 premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race. But will her past fashions allow her to stay or will she be forced to sashay away?

"As we celebrate a Decade of Drag, we'll continue to tell universal stories of the tenacity of the human spirit," RuPaul said in a statement. "Now more than ever, we rely on the power of love, laughter and creativity to combat fear and darkness."

VH1 also announced the new series Daytime Divas with Vanessa Williams, an untitled project starring Ricky Martin, and the show 90's House hosted by former 'N Sync singer Lance Bass.

"VH1 is leading the industry in growth and our new expansive slate will continue to fuel this trajectory," VH1, MTV and Logo president Chris McCarthy said. "VH1 is where pop culture comes to party."
