V99 Guest Editor Lady Gaga was honored with the Woman of the Year Award at Billboard’ s annual Women in Music event Friday night in New York. After sweetly being introduced by her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, Gaga gave a powerful speech highlighting the struggle women face in the industry, “Its like a fucking boys club that we just can’ t get into,” she noted, further explaining, “women provide a wisdom to music that is very unique and special... It is a perspective no one else can have... because we go through things no one else goes through" V’ s former cover stars Lana Del Rey and Selena Gomez were also celebrated, receiving the Trailblazer of the Year Award and the Chart-Topper Honor, respectively. Given the brilliance of both their recent albums, we’ re not surprised. Well deserved, ladies.
