iVillage Woman of the Week: Lady Gaga

The pop star's unparalleled fanbase and rekindled romance earn her this week's coveted title

Each week we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. And with her record-breaking fan support and her budding, new (again) romance, this week definitely belongs to Lady Gaga.

This week the pop star broke the record for the most number of Facebook fans of any living person. (She still lags significantly behind Michael Jackson.) As of today, she has nearly 12 million followers on the social networking giant. And those fans came out in droves for her Friday morning performance on the Today show's summer concert series stage. The pouring rain during the outdoor show just added to the theatrics and enthused the estimated 20,000 "Little Monsters" crowded into New York City's  Rockefeller Plaza.

But perhaps her biggest fan is Gaga's new love interest -- who's actually from her past. The 24-year-old singer has reunited with her former flame, musician and bartender Luc Carl. She even gave him a personal shout-out during her concert, as she dedicated her new song "You and I" to the "most important person I've ever met." Does that mean her vow of celibacy could be ending sometime soon?

We've got to hand it to Lady Gaga for always delivering performances worthy of her devoted fans (even in the pouring rain!) and making the time to have a personal life, too!
