turned 28 on March 28 (kinda cool, huh?) and if you think Mother Monster took the day off, think again. The pop star kicked off her birthday weekend by cracking a joke about escaping the 27 club. Then, she celebrated in her home state of New York where she was surprised by her boyfriend and even took a trip down memory lane. See the photos from her busy b-day.
She started off the evening working (of course). Here she is getting ready for her concert at Roseland
And she was (maybe a little too?) excited when her fans sang Happy Birthday to her
Then she got into this overzealous ensemble to say goodbye to "Rose" land
Oh, and she got a bunch of birthday gifts from Donatella Versace--you know, nbd
And she got another surprise visit from her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney (man, he's hot)
Then she got a little nostalgic and visited her old apartment, which was probably not cool for the person living there now like "wow, look how I lived before I made it"
Then she slipped into something a little less comfortable
...and then something even LESS comfortable than that to kick it with James Franco
Then, depending on what the "S" ended up standing for, she and Taylor may or may not have ended the evening with a bang
Happy Birthday, Gaga!
