Lady Gaga Named MTV’s Woman of the Year (PHOTOS)
Providing even further proof that it’s Lady Gaga’s world and the rest of us are just living in it, the “Alejandro” singer has been named Woman of the Year by MTV—for the second year running.
Gaga beat out stiff competition such as Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Jersey Shore enchantress Snooki and Nicki Minaj for the honor. (Nabbing top honors for Man of the Year? Gaga’s would-be tour mate, Kanye West.)
Explaining their decision, MTV noted,
“Lady Gaga didn’t even release a proper album in 2010, and somehow, she managed to become an even bigger star. This had as much to do with the fact that she kept working with what she had — the endless tour, the incomparable videos — as it did with her harnessing her hard-fought stardom and attempting to become a force for social change. She spoke out loudly and proudly in support of gay rights and in opposition to the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, and, in the process, she became the kind of star we haven’t seen in decades: One unafraid to offend, no matter how much she stood to lose.”
