Lady Gaga threw up her fingers in the most recent photo on her Instagram page, revealing that the middle one was covered by a huge ring. The oversized piece of jewelry appeared to be made of both silver and gold and encased her finger from the knuckle to the tip. The singer used the ring to accessorize a green-and-black dress that she wore with shiny knee-high black boots. She rocked pink hair in the image as well and wore half of it swept over one shoulder.
However, the caption is where Gaga expressed the reason why she decided to post this image on Valentine’s Day. In it, she discussed the age-old tradition that only allowed women to propose marriage to men on February 29 during a leap year. After pointing out that in 2020, anyone can propose to their significant other regardless of gender, she declared that she is wearing the ring in the photo as a declaration of self-love.
The update has accumulated more than 360,000 likes on Instagram so far and more than 5,000 users have commented on it. In those comments, some fans raved about the snap.
“This cured my depression,” one fan wrote.
“You are always a source of inspiration for everyone,” another added.
Others seemed eager for Gaga’s hand in marriage.
“You can just ask me to marry you and see how it goes,” a third commenter quipped.
But a lot of the commenters demanded new music from the iconic pop superstar, with many calling for a video for an unreleased track called “Stupid Love.”
“What we want to celebrate is ‘Stupid Love’s’ music video,” one commenter chimed in.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day wearing this badass ring designed by my friend @bcompleted for @klarna.usa. Did you know that an old tradition says that only during a leap year, on Feb 29th, are women allowed to propose to men? ????♀️ It’s 2020, and any person of any gender identity can propose to anyone, anytime! So as we all celebrate love today, I put this ring on my own finger as a sign of my love for myself and for my fans – and a reminder that we are all born superstars. ???? #getwhatyoulove
Even though she used her Valentine’s Day post to proclaim the virtues of self-love, Gaga recently made her relationship with tech CEO Michael Polansky public. As The Inquisitr reported, the “Love Game” singer posted a photo of herself in his lap earlier this month. Gaga and Michael appeared to be on a yacht when the picture was taken. With her pink hair partially tied in a messy top knot, she wore a blue bikini under a netted cover-up. Michael’s outfit was obscured by her body, but he was pictured with his arms around her.
“We had so much fun in Miami,” Gaga wrote in the caption. “Love to all my little monsters and fans, you’re the best!”
The photo has been liked more than 2 million times and over 26,000 Instagram users have commented on it.
