The past year has been a wild one for Lady Gaga. She cemented her position as queen of the twittersphere with more than 20 million followers, released a hit album that sold more than 1.1 million copies in the first week and launched an anti-bullying foundation. We here at Frederick’s can’t wait to see what the next year holds in store for her!
Happy birthday Mother Monster!
