Get Gaga for 99 cents on Amazon

Attention Little Monsters: For one day only eCommerce giant Amazon is offering Lady Gaga’s new album Born this Way for 99 cents. The wheels of Web 2.0 were in full force for this promotion: I heard about it first on my iPhone, and then on Facebook and finally, Tumblr.

Get it while you can click it.

Hat tip to Erin K. at Ultra K for the heads-up.
