Late musician John Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono, presented her the award in Iceland on Tuesday, The Sun reported.

Ono praised her work and said the singer took a risk with her fame.

"Lady Gaga is in a position of number one as a singer songwriter. And when you are number one, you don't want to risk yourself. And she did," Ono said.

The singer was presented a trophy along with a cash prize. Gaga said she will donate the amount to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
