Lady Gaga's most memorable quotes

Lady Gaga: life in quotes

The smash hit singer in her own words

It's only been three years since Lady Gaga burst onto the pop scene, wearing next-to-nothing and sporting a collection of out-there accessories (telephone hat, anyone?), but now it's hard to imagine a world without her own particular brand of kooky cool. Whether you count yourself among her army of 'Little Monsters' or not, it's still impossible not to appreciate Lady Gaga's ability to go to extremes and her commitment to be 100% herself. With today (28 March) marking Gaga 26th birthday, we thought we'd celebrate with a selection of her most memorable quotes and controversial outfits. Enjoy.
