One of the most successful artists in all of music turns 27 years young today.

Happy birthday to Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga!

The only question is how the injured New York City native will celebrate.

She was forced to cancel her tour thanks to hip pain, which for her is like a fate worse than death. The star could really use your birthday wishes this year!


Taylor Kinney, you’d better bring her some flowers and more today.

Given her condition, this year promises to be a quieter one for the megastar, at least compared to her omnipresent Fame / Born This Way era of 2008-11.

Still, don’t expect this tour de force to face away. Not by a long shot.

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.

Fully nude and making cake or clothed, with or without makeup, dressed up like a slab of meat or as a rumored hermaphrodite, we love us some Gaga.

And we’re not alone.

Here’s wishing her a happy 27th birthday, and hoping for her full, speedy recovery and many more great moments in the months and years go come.

Be well, girl. Be well.

In other celebrity birthday news, Kate Gosselin is 38. Vince Vaughn, Reba McEntire and Julia Stiles are also celebrating today. Hooray for the 28th of March!
