Baby, she was born this day! Lady Gaga has been out of commission for a few months while she recovers from hip surgery, and we’ve definitely been feeling the absence of our beloved Mother Monster.
While she may be off the front lines for a spell, that doesn’t mean she’s far from our minds. You never forget a gal who wore a dress made of meat, after all. So in honor of the Fame Queen’s 27th birthday, we;d like to 27 of the reasons why we’ll never forget Lady Gaga. Enjoy!
1. There’s Might Be A Lord Gaga In The Picture Very SoonWe don’t want to speak too soon, but there have been rumors that Lady Gaga is planning to tie the knot with her boyfriend Taylor Kinney in the very near future.Will that make his official title Lord Gaga? Just the thought of trying to imagine a Momma Monster Wedding is enough to make our heads explode in a cloud of glitter. WE WANT PIX!
2. She Knows How To Really “Get Down” In The Studio (We Mean Sex)Gaga warned her then-assistant against coming to the recording studio, because apparently she was having private moments with her BF. “Stefani just said, you know, we’re having sex at the studio so I don’t know if you want to be there for that,” the ex-assistant revealed, referring to Gaga’s real name, Stefani Germanotta. “She never told me not to come. She just told me what was happening, and I came to my own conclusions that I would prefer not to watch.” It’ll definitely make things interesting when we listen to…
3. Her New Album, ARTPOP!Songs for the new album were”beginning to flourish” in 2012, and it’s set for release this fall! Coupled with a duets jazz album with Tony Bennett, we’ve got lots of new Gaga tracks to hear! We’ll just try to separate those studio-sex thoughts from the Tony Bennett thoughts…

But not just any water: 28 bottles at room temperature, and 28 bottles cold.
6. Which Accounts For Her Pants-Rippingly Good ShowsThe consummate show-lady, Gaga’s pants split during a performance in Vancouver, and she kept right on truckin’.
7. She Offers Free Counseling To Little Monsters In Need Before Her Shows
In case you need another reason why she’s the best, Lady Gaga has made counselors available to her fans during the pre-show of her Born This Way tours, in the form of the Born Brave Buses. “The Born Brave Bus is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all” Gaga explained. “I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around ’help’ and make it fun.”

Just two? He can survive embedded reporting from war-torn Iraq, but not an afternoon at the pub with Lady Gaga.
