At this Friday’s Billboard “‘Women in Music” event, Lady Gaga will be the recipient of this year’s “Rising Star” award. Since the release of her debut album The Fame, she has sold over a million copies and scored two #1 singles with “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”.
“Lady Gaga is one of those rare examples of a truly unique artist with mass appeal,” said Bill Werde, Billboard’s Editorial Director. “She has established herself as one of today’s top songwriters, and the whole world is waiting to see what her next outrageous but brilliant move or style will be. It is that ongoing anticipation, combined with her success that makes her a rising star.” Lady GaGa will be honored along with Beyonce Knowles, who was named “Woman of the Year.”
Her album The Fame is available now on and Amazon!
