Despite the 'wardrobe malfunction', Gaga continued to strike a pose in the revealing outfit, winning the coveted 'Icon Award' at the event, taking to the stage to thank designer Marc Jacobs and Vogue US editor Anna Wintour.
"All of you made me feel like a star before I was," Gaga told the crowd.
Gaga's second studio album and third major release "Born This Way", released May 23, 2011, described as "a marriage of electronic music with major rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats", followed the release of the "Born This Way" single, February 11, 2011, performed live for the first time at the 53rd Grammy Awards two days after its release.
The song debuted on top of the Billboard Hot 100, followed by the singles "Judas" and "The Edge of Glory", also released before the album, with both placing in the top ten. The "Born This Way" album sold 1.108 million copies in its first week in the US, debuting on top of the Billboard 200.
