(Gibson) Lady Gaga helped Billboard's Hot 100 hit a major milestone this week with the chart's 1,000th chart topper. Gaga's single, "Born This Way," hit #1 this week, joining two of her earlier singles, "Just Dance" and "Poker Face," for that honor.

Gaga told Billboard, "It is a tremendous honor. To be the 1,000th #1 on Billboard... I would be silly not to say this is the greatest honor of my career. I am so humbled and so honored and overwhelmed by the reception to "Born This Way," [it] has been so life-changing for me as an artist, and between Billboard and the international #1s and the radio numbers... I couldn't be more blessed to have the fans that I have."

The Billboard Hot 100 is generally considered to be the standard singles popularity chart in the U.S. The list began on August 4, 1958 with "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson. more on this story
