“At the top of the list would have to be Lady Gaga and Rihanna,” MTV said, “Both have catapulted themselves into the upper atmosphere of pop culture stardom, bordering on iconic status. With their daring combos of hot and haute couture and brave filmmaking, they released a series of videos that combined catwalk-ready fashion with cinematic craftsmanship. Ri-Ri’s ‘Hard’ and Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ and ‘Bad Romance’ simply dazzled.”

IN TOUCH WEEKLY recently quoted Lady Gaga as saying this, “I was a bit insecure in high school. I used to get made fun of for being either too provocative or too eccentric, so I started to tone it down. I didn’t fit in, and I felt like a freak.” But once she started college at New York University, she said she began to show her true colors.

“I really let the real me out," Gaga admitted. "I’m an outspoken and extreme dresser. I am inspired by photography and art, but mostly by New York.” She defended her quirkiness and explained she does it all for her fans, who can relate to her feeling like an outsider. “This is really who I am, and it took a long time to be okay with that.”

Anyone who follows Lady Gaga on Facebook or Twitter may have been puzzled recently when this showed up on her pages: #Ladygaygay. A lot of readers speculated her accounts had been hacked, but the truth is she was simply reacting to a show of support by fans who were upset by recent stories about Rev. Fred Phelps from the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), the decidedly sick obsessed founder of the “God Hates Fags” movement. The little man has been threatening to picket Lady Gaga at the Fox Theatre in Missouri on January 7th because of her support for gay rights. Her Little Monsters tweeted #Ladygaygay so many thousands of times that Lady Gaga took notice and posted the tweet herself. Read more here: The #LadyGayGay Story.

Watch this video of Lady Gaga reacting to being named MTV News' Woman of The Year: "It means everything," Gaga said. "I'm not only flattered but really excited. It makes me want to work harder, make better videos and better shows and better music all the time. I really appreciate all the love MTV has shown me, and the support. My performance at the VMAs, for me, was a turning point artistically, and I appreciated that you guys supported me so much. I always dreamed about being a performer on the MTV Awards. ... More importantly, I wanted to be a performer, and I wanted my VMA performance to be my groundbreaking, life-changing performance," she said. "So everything that I'd been working on was leading up to that moment, and then after that I gave birth to this new album, The Fame Monster. It was an amazing moment for me."
