Lady Gaga Says Malala Yousafzai Really Deserves Glamour’s Women of the Year Cover

At Glamour’s annual Women of the Year Awards last night (Nov. 11), Lady Gaga admitted she didn’t feel she was worthy of donning this year’s cover.

The singer, whose latest album, ARTPOP, told the crowd at New York’s Carnegie Hall that Malala Yousafzai, who was also being honored at the awards, deserved the cover telling the crowd,  “If I could forfeit my Glamour cover I would give it to Malala.”

The Pakistani teen became an inspirational figure after the Taliban shot her in the head last year for criticizing the group’s interpretation of Islam and limiting women’s access to education. Since recovering from her gunshot wound, the 16-year-old Yousafzai, who was up for a Nobel Prize, has made it her mission to make sure other girls voices are heard.
