Lady Gaga Claims Billboard’s 1,000th No. 1

"Born This Way" is now, officially, the 1,000th song to top the 52-year-old Billboard "Hot 100." This is, of course, completely arbitrary, but maybe good for trivia? Also, Gaga's happy: "I am so humbled and so honored and overwhelmed by the reception to 'Born This Way.' [It] has been so life changing for me as an artist, and between Billboard and the international number ones and the radio numbers...I couldn't be more blessed to have the fans that I have ... To be the 1000th no. 1 on Billboard ... I would be silly not to say this is the greatest honor of my career." Wait, really? She's aware she hasn't herself had 1,000 Billboard No. 1s, right?
