Selected for her philanthropic work, Lady Gaga was honoured as one of Glamour’s 2013 Women of the Year at the annual gala in New York City on November 11th.

When accepting the award at Carnegie Hall, the singer criticised the magazine for heavily airbrushing her cover and urged her fans to “fight back against the forces that say you have to be beautiful.” She said: “I felt my skin looked too perfect. I felt my hair looked too soft. I do not look like this when I wake up in the morning… I don’t even look like this.

“It is fair to write about the change in your magazines,” Gaga added. “But what I want to see is the change on your covers. When the covers change, that’s when culture changes.”

According to the magazine’s editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive, “Glamour’s Women of the Year awards are all about saluting women whose work helps to change the world, and that mission has clearly been accomplished with this year’s group of honorees. I’m so blown away by the range of achievement, bravery, depth, smarts, and moxie they have demonstrated.”
