This is a news story, but also a reflective moment for Lady Gaga and her fans. The superstar singer is set to perform for her largest crowd yet in South Africa tonight, with the promoter expecting a crowd upwards of 80,000 people in attendance. It's only been four years since Gaga burst into the scene, and she's rivaling the likes of Madonna in touring capacity. It should be noted that Lady Gaga is the only contemporary artist currently that can sell out stadiums across all continents.

The Born This Way Ball is expected to outgross her previous blockbuster show, The Monster Ball, with estimates of over $250 million dollars grossed before it's all set and done. Furthermore, the tour has a 100% sell-out rate currently with every date being filled.

The tour comes off of the best selling 2011 American album, Born This Way, which sold over 7 million copies worldwide. The album's success follows The Fame and The Fame Monster, which also topped year-end lists for global sales.

So, take a moment to ignore all of the craze about Lady Gaga's demise, and celebrate her success while gearing up for a new era in 2013. :)
