Hopefully Lady Gaga knows how to have her cake and eat it too.
The superstar, who turns 26 today, tweeted a photo last night of what appears to be a bit of a pre-party, thanks to the lone candle standing in the center of a cake slice that's seen better days. "This is how it feels turning 26 in three and a half hours," she wrote. "Ha!"
The singer has hinted that she's going to have an elaborate celebration, as she told her Twitter followers - or Little Monsters, if you will - that she was planning to have a "quinceañera," an event traditionally held by Latin families for a daughter's 15th birthday, to honor her transition into womanhood.
However the Mother Monster decides to fete another year older, she certainly has plenty to celebrate: At 26, Gaga's racked up five Grammys, nine songs in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100, and has sold more than 23 million albums, reports E!. Now that's something to sing about.
