After fans posted a happy birthday message to Lady Gaga at the weekend, the Paparazzi singer has said she was overwhelmed with happiness.
"I've never cried so hard in 24 years, from pure joy and unconditional love - tears still streaming," tweeted the star, who turned 24 on Sunday.
"Thank you so much for all the beautiful birthday messages, videos, and gifts. The greatest present I've been given this year is you, I love you," continued the singer, who recently had a tattoo etched in honour of her fans, whom she refers to as "little monsters".
