Singer Lady Gaga has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year at a recent event in New York.

The singing sensation was introduced on stage by her mother Cynthia Germanotta, who recalled how the chart-topping singer learned to walk by holding on to the leg of the family piano, “and in the process managed to reach the keys”.

Upon collecting the coveted award, Gaga said: “Women provide a wisdom to music that is very unique and special.
“It is a perspective no one else can have because we bear life. And because we go through things no one else goes through. And because it’s right. Because we’re all equal.”

The ‘Bad Romance’ hitmaker ended her speech by sending a message to all the people who doubted her along the way. She said: “I couldn’t wait to prove you wrong. Because I may not be a lot of things, but I can write songs, and I can sing.”

Elsewhere in the night, American band Fifth Harmony–comprising of Camila Cabello, Normani Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Allyson Hernandez and Dinah Hansen–collected the Group of the Year award, while Tori Kelly was named the Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
