Lady Gaga Birthday: To Celebrate, The Star's 10 Craziest Hats

Little monsters around the world and across the Twitterverse are gathering in celebration of "mother monster" Lady Gaga's special day. On this day in history, the "Born This Way" singer was born.

On her 26th birthday, we got to thinking about what we love most about Gaga, and her bold style was one of the first things that came to mind. We think the best way to honor to the queen of pop is to pay tribute to her characteristically bold and boundary-breaking sartorial choices -- which, obviously, come in the form of gravity-defying headwear.

For Gaga, every day is crazy hat day. Some of her statement, erm, headpieces are so outlandish that it's hard to know if they can even be properly referred to as hats. From bedazzled head coverings and wraps to elaborate faux-hair constructions to what can only be described as contraptions, Gaga's looked are always topped off with a conversation piece. Today, we tip a proverbial birthday hat to Lady Gaga with a celebration of the star's 10 craziest hats.
