Wow, internet!  Calm down... it's only a Golden Globe! 

Lady Gaga is anything but subtle, so maybe it makes sense that the internet is riding a wave of intense emotion about her win for best actress for American Horror Story, but seriously — why so much hate?

Maybe it's because she's so polarizing? But as a performer, Gaga has always known how to make a statement, and apparently she has done just that with her performance on American Horror Story: Hotel, convincing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that she deserved the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Limited Series, Series, or Motion Picture.

But, as some seem to have forgotten, Gaga's not the first musician to win a Golden Globe. Both Madonna and Cher have also walked away with the golden statue (to name just a few fellow divas), so maybe we should all just calm down?

Plus, we thought her acceptance speech was super classy. Not only was she genuinely moved by the win,  admitting that she had always wanted to be an actress before she became a singer, but she also thanked each of her AHS co-stars for helping her to "shine."
