While accepting the Woman of the Year honor at the Billboard Women in Music event in New York City Friday, Mother Monster put the music industry on blast, calling it a "boy's club," according to People.
"What I really want to say is that it is really hard sometimes for women in music. It's like a f**king boys club that we just can't get in to," she said as the room erupted in applause. "I tried for so long, I just really wanted to be taken seriously as a musician for my intelligence more than my body ever in this business.You don't always feel like when you're working that people believe that you have musical background, that you understand what you're doing because you're a female."
Gaga's fiancé, Taylor Kinney, and her mom, Cynthia Germanotta, were among those showing her love in the audience. The songstress even posted a sweet photo of herself kissing her man with the caption, "He said, "honey you're always my Woman of the Year." HAPPY HOLIDAYS! #billboard."
The "G.U.Y." crooner also hit Instagram after taking home the award to show her appreciation to her fans, writing, "I would like to thank my fans from the bottom of my heart for loving me and my music, everything I have today is because of you. Always remember that if you work hard and dream passionately you can accomplish something so fantastic it's actually beyond your imagination. That's how I felt today. I'm living in a fantasy so amazing, not even on my best days as an artist could I have envisioned it."
After basking in the glory of that moment, Gaga got back to her roots, sharing a couple of photos of herself cleaning her home in a Queen shirt, shades and nothing else. "What does Billboard's Woman of the Year do on her day off? SAME AS YOU #HOUSEKEEPIN," she captioned the shot.
Just one more reason why we love her. Congratulations Gaga!
