27. Lady Gaga Selfie
A cute, old school Lady Gaga selfie. She doesn't look like this anymore, some say. Did she get a nose job?
The only question is how the international pop star will celebrate this occasion. Hopefully it won't involve getting puked on ... although she is into that.
Hopefully she won't have to be too submissive to Taylor Kinney ... although she is into that too. Okay, whatever you wanna do is fine with us, Gaga!
Love or hate the Lady, there's no debate over the impact this young woman has had on the industry, and her immense popularity with fans proves it.
From the moment the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors hit the web, and she dressed up like a human piece of meat on stage, we loved us some Gaga.
And we're not alone. Far from it.
Here's wishing her a happy 28th birthday from all the Little Monsters out there, and we hope you'll scroll through our photo gallery tribute to her above.
In other celebrity birthday news, Kate Gosselin, Vince Vaughn, Reba McEntire and Julia Stiles are also celebrating today. Hooray for the 28th of March!
