The lady is still a champ. As expected, Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" became the fastest-selling single in the history of iTunes, hitting the top spot in 21 of 23 countries where the music service is available.
It took a mere five hours for the first single from Gaga's forthcoming album of the same title to jump to the number 1 position. With lyrics that address race and sexuality, Gaga, as well as close friends Elton John and Perez Hilton, have called the song the next great "gay anthem."
The song also debuted high in the other two countries: number 2 in Denmark and number 3 in Japan.
