Lady Gaga did not forget to thank her fans, the Little Monsters, on her birthday. The singer-songwriter took to social media to express her gratitude to the fans who have been with her since she started her career 10 years ago.

On Wednesday, Mother Monster uploaded a chic selfie on Instagram to update her fans about her whereabouts following her birthday. Gaga poured her heart out in the caption of her post as she thanked her fans for the support they’ve shown her over the years. “Today I have focused on smiling about all that I’m grateful for and reflecting on the last ten years of music and performances we have shared together,” she wrote.

Gaga continued her heartwarming message by telling her fans that they are her inspiration for turning fantasies into reality. Being the LGBTQ advocate that she is, Gaga encouraged her fans to celebrate their differences and accept the unique traits they have. Lastly, she thanked everyone for the birthday wishes.

To celebrate her birthday on Tuesday, Gaga hosted a private star-studded party at Gjelina in Venice, California. The 31-year-old was joined by her new boyfriend, Christian Carino, during the intimate dinner party. It was attended by many of Gaga’s closest friends in Hollywood, such as Elton John, Samantha Ronson, Johnny Depp and David Furnish, according to E! News.

Gaga and Carino were spotted by Daily Mail making their way to the venue. In the photos the news site obtained, Carino can be seen holding a blue Tiffany and Co. paper bag, which was assumed to contain his gift for the Grammy-winning singer.

Gaga and Carino’s relationship is fairly new. They were first seen together in January when the “Million Reasons” singer rehearsed for her Super Bowl LI halftime show performance. Gaga has yet to open up to the media about her new romance, but they appear to be very much in love. Early this month, the couple was seen publicly locking lips after attending a party at the Sunset Tower hotel in West Hollywood.

Prior to hitting it off with Carino, Gaga was previously engaged to “Chicago Fire” actor Taylor Kinney. The two ended their six-year relationship back in July 2016.
