The 'Marry The Night' singer has posted a picture of herself dressed up like the late acting icon.

Lady Gaga has wished happy birthday to late Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe while posing with her hair and make-up done to look like the Some Like It Hot actress.

The 'Born This Way' singer uploaded the picture earlier today (1st June) to celebrate the day  the famous actress was born.

"#HappyBirthdayMarilyn They'll never take our blonde hair and lipstick," Gaga tweeted today.

The 'You & I' singer has openly paid tribute to Marilyn Monroe in the past, most notably when she dressed in a similar look to the Gentleman Prefer Blondes actress earlier this year.

Gaga was celebrating this week after she reached a new milestone on Twitter, having reached over 25 million followers on the social networking site.

The 'Marry The Night' singer is said to have started work on her third studio album, with co-manager Vincent Herbert promising the record will sound "insane".

Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' world tour is set to continue in Auckland, New Zealand on 7th June.
