Lady Gaga is a pop queen with mega style and even more passion for doing good—what can we say, she was born this way. To celebrate the Mother Monster turning 26, we’ve put together a list of the top reasons why we love her!
She’s an advocate for AIDS education and gay rights.
Her music, duhh. Gaga has won five Grammys and sold over 23 million albums.
She supports volunteerism. Gaga gave premium Monster Ball National Tour VIP tickets to fans who volunteered at homeless youth organizations.
Her style. Who else can rock a meat dress and 12-inch heels?
She’s politically charged. Gaga wasn’t shy about raising the issue of suicide and bullying of gay teens at a fundraiser attended by President Obama.
Her little monsters. There are over 20 million of them following her on Twitter (a record breaker).
She hatched from an egg, right before singing “Born This Way” at the 2011 Grammys.
