Lady Gaga's received an award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) celebrating the fact that her quite good 'Bad Romance' single has passed the 10m sales mark in America.
The prestigious Diamond Award was presented to Gaga by your friend and ours Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA, who had the following things to say about it all (as quoted here).
"With this award, Lady Gaga joins a prestigious and exclusive list of Gold and Platinum luminaries. 'Bad Romance' is one of the most popular and iconic songs of the last decade [WE THINK THEY MEAN CENTURY]. We are honored [THEY MEAN HONOURED] to present Lady Gaga with a Diamond Award in recognition of 'Bad Romance' surpassing the ten million mark, and to congratulate her as the first female artist in Gold & Platinum Program history to earn a Digital Diamond Award."
Apparently Gaga's digital sales in America across seven singles now adds up to 28.5m, which is pretty impressive really.
