Happy 26th birthday, Lady Gaga

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.

    Hi, Neat post. There's a problem with your site in internet explorer, would test this? IE nonetheless is the marketplace leader and a big component to other people will omit your great writing because of this problem.

    Happy Birthday Mother Monster, you're as Beautiful on the inside as the outside, a fan is someone who can see the inside more than the outside of a person, a fan can read the intelligence of your messages, a fan can see the inspiration that you are to children, the role model, the mother,the idol! A fan of Lady Gaga knows what it feels like to be a fan of someone who cares and not make you feel like just another number, what other celebrity gives back to her fans as much as she gives them?


    No my friends Lady Gaga IS the biggest name in the celebrity world, because as a fan I see and know how it feels simply to be a.........

    You forgot to mention that she's one of the most generous celebrity philanthropists out there. Awards are great and all, but some people (like Lady Gaga) actually work to change people's lives for the better. THAT is what's worth celebrating.

    This useless talent who is more a shock clown than a singer has yet to claim a Grammy award...ummmmm because she is NO Adele or Madonna that's why. More trash music from Lady Kaka and her counterparts like Rihanna....
