This recognition by Billboard magazine is no mean feat. This makes Lady Gaga as only the seventh woman to ever grace the same honor.
Gaga’s rise to the top of the Billboard chart was propelled by her two albums – The Fame and then the EP The Fame Monster. The two ended up at number 4 and 13 – respectively on the magazine’s year end chart. Meanwhile, she racked up four top 10 singles in 2010.
Responding to the honor from Billboard magazine and the recent6 nominations she got for the Grammys, Lady Gaga said that it’s a true testament to artistic freedom.
