    She wants your love and she wants your revenge – she doesn't want to be friends. Congrats to Lady Gaga, as she is a diamond.

    How so?

    Well, she received the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) Diamond Award since her smash single "Bad Romance" surpassed the 10 million mark with sales and streams.

    She is the first female artist to reach this milestone! SO CONGRATS!

    "With this award, Lady Gaga joins a prestigious and exclusive list of Gold and Platinum luminaries," said Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA. "'Bad Romance' is one of the most popular and iconic songs of the last decade. We are honored to present Lady Gaga with a Diamond Award in recognition of 'Bad Romance' surpassing the 10 million mark, and to congratulate her as the first female artist in Gold & Platinum Program history to earn a Digital Diamond Award."

    Woot woot.
