After last week's strong sales debut, Lady Gaga's album "Born This Way" has seen a sharp decrease in sales.
The superstar's record sold more than a million copies in its first week, but for week two only 174,000 were sold, according to Billboard.
Of course, Lady Gaga's album was on sale for just 99 cents not once but twice after its May 23 release thanks to Amazon, which was offering "Born This Way" at the deep discount along with storage space for the Amazon cloud player service.
Billboard notes that because the promotion likely tacked on hundreds of thousands of units to Gaga's first week sales, the second week's drop-off seems to be at an even steeper decline than is normally expected.
At this rate, Billboard says, Adele - who has been suffering from laryngitis and had to cancel the remainder of her North American tour - could soon reclaim No. 1. The Brit singer's "21" is currently at the No. 2 spot, with 121,000 units sold.
THE ALBUM HAS SOLD MORE THAN 5 MILLION SALES IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS!
Maybe because people are starting to understand what a talentless exhibitionist she is? Never understood her popularity and believe me, I've tried.
Really really have enjoyed Lady Gaga in the past. I am disturbed by her "Judas" song and will, therefore, NOT purchase the new c.d. Regardless of what anyone of these "older" folks are saying about her being forgotten in 5-10 years, you may wanna think again. I'm 48 and remember well when Madonna was getting her start and everyone said the same thing about her. IMO, Gaga has MORE talent that Madonna, vocally. Unfortuntely, she was gone way way off the tooo weird end!
I guess all faithful christian girls wear a cross on their crotch
If you sell something to everyone who might want it for 99 cents, it's hard to sell it later for more money.
I guess some things aren't "timeless".
gaga is disgusting... a horrible example to young people...(and yes, I am young).... are you all so dumb out there as to not realize "edge of glory" glorifies getting ready to go to hell and suicide?? Is this what you all love and want? And, "no", you were not "born this way".... it's a "choice" !!! Wake up!!!
The music is trash and so is she. Why does anyone follow this tramp.
Thats because she is foul mouthed and looks the street druged heron addict ,Her fifteen mins of fame was over a long time ago !
Sorry Gaga, your album is Kaka..............................not worth a penny
Sorry Gaga, your last album is not nice at all. I wouldn't get it for free
I'm still waiting for her to do a cover of Golden Earrings classic "Radar Love". Just her version would be "Gaydar Love". What a f@gHag.
Sell out with me oh ya! Sellout with me tonight. The record company's going to give me lots of money and everything will be allright. This "music" is dreadful. No heart no soul, just like a lot of popular culture in America today.
I love how Gag's little monsters brand anyone who can't stand Gag as "haters" and "obviously jealous of her fame." So delusional.
"Lady Gag Me" is a flash in the pan. I can't wait to see her totally disappear from the music scene.
Lady Gaga is someone who has realized how to capitalize on cheap theatrics to rake in megabucks. Luckily for her bank accounts, there are plenty of gullible people who are willing to contribute toward that end, as a good percentage of the population no longer demands quality in entertainment, or in any other profession for that matter. I hope that she donates a portion of her wealth toward alleviating some of the many types of suffering that exist in our country and in our world......that might, to some degree, compensate for the part she currently plays in the dumbing down of America.
I really can't wait till this crazy Gaga crap is over. She is a weirdo and I can't believe that people follow her.
This because she sold the album for $.99 on the first day. Crashed Amazon! Everybody who wanted it got it! Next time just do not sell the album so cheap. lol
I liked Gaga better when she was know as Madonna. Same act different generation.
Lady gaga just plain sucks!! 99cent records would help anybody sell a million records.
Just make music. I don't care about what you look like, what you do, what you eat/drink. JUST MAKE MUSIC. Gaga Fail.
poor gaga but i just felt it with this album :/
Stupid CNN bogus report. Sale compared to previous week's 99 cent special. How is that a comparison?
Back in the 80s we had a name for all these "monsters"....they were called POSERS.
Lady GagMe isn't anything but a mainstream pop sensation. In 10 years we'll look back and laugh at this little episode of nonsense.
I cant imagine why....maybe people have finally gotten tired of listening to the Madonna poser and all her stupid lyrics
Clown Gaga is nothing but a flash in the pan. NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought it for the 20gb of Amazon Cloud space. After listening to it, I think it really sucks!! Nothing but techno beats with auto-tune. Give us some of you real talent, Gaga, we know you have it. Quit the crazy costumes and worry about the music.
It's amazing what talentless drivel this "thing" puts out and calls music. It's even more amazing what people will do to be "cool" and follow whatever ridiculous trend is in the media spotlight. I'm commenting because her "little monsters" don't know music or what talent really is. There is nothing original about this idiot. Just goes to show you that the music industry will produce any piece of crap that the public wants, as long as there are people out there that continue to support "music" just to try to be cool. I give her 2 more years and she'll be as irrelevant as the Jonas Brothers, the Bieb, or any other talentless musician on the music scene right now. She's just trash with no talent. I wish Lady Gaga would Go-go!
Laty gag me you F ing Suck
She has a penis.
Here is the thing. There are plenty of music acts that were the big thing of yesteryear, faded into media obscurity, and yet still tour and produce new music. Sometimes, like the eagles or duran duran, they manage to get the spotlight again, but, far more often, continue to put out good solid music. Then you have the artists who never have a so called hit, but are great musicians just the same. Shame the media plays such a large role in deciding the next big act.
To all the people defending lady gaga I feal sorry for u people its funny that she don't know u and don't care about u all u guys are just a dollar sign to her I have nothing against her I don't really care for her music like some already said she's a remake madonna and I agree but like I said its very funny people get mad when they talk about her but if somebody talked bad to her about u she would be like I don't give crap I don't even know that person lmao am rich go buy my cd lmao
Sooo....most of the people who were going to buy it, did so right off? Is that bad?
CNN fails to mention the global success of the album. The album sold 1,108,000 in the U.S. its first week, the highest first-week album sales in six years, and then sold 174,000 its second week, totaling 1,282,000 in the U.S. (still massive sales). Worldwide the album sold 1,921,000 its first week (unbelievable sales) and sold 487,000 its second week, totaling 2,408,000 worldwide. Her previous two albums were far, far behind this at the second week. Congratulations to Gaga.
Rice boy above my post u aint gonna breed n u eat all the time
Really??? people r hatin about spelling and grammar... well may b i can post my age to get u hatin more...
Lady Gaga – Here today – Gone tomorrow. In the post Apocalypse era, the only thing she will be any good for is breeding and eating.
could it be that america just realized that gaga is pro-gay? should have kept it simple for the stupid people.
Oh mother Monster, please give al us pathetic loser mothers an enema! We are so lame and dicombulated, we just need something stupid and ridicous to base our worthless lives upon. We will gladly kill ourselves, if that is what your non-talent ego-trip dictates. Please, let the enema fest ensue!!!!!!!!
Finally people will start realizing Lady Gaga is only a "flvor of the month". Remember the Backstreet Boys, Nsync and Debbie Gibson? Gaga, the Madonna wanna be, here today gone tomorrow.
Hmmm... maybe people are catching on to the REAL quality of the 'music' rather than being blinded by the carnival freakshow.
For anyone trashing her, as much as I do not like all her music, she is today's Madonna, just like the 2000s had Usher, Jay Z, and Beyonce, the 1990s pretty much was Backstreet Boys, Boys 2 Men, Mariah Carey, the 1980s had Madonna, Michael Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Prince, 1970s had Bee Gees, Elton John, John Lennon, 1960s was Beatles, Rolling Stones, and of course 1950s we had Elvis Presley, every decade has its pop diva, and for now its Lady Gaga's turn to be on top. Someday someone else will come along and be the top reigning champ. As much as I do not care for all of her music, me being 40, I do not mind a few of her songs. I am glad in some ways that music like this has made a comeback, very reminscent of the early 1980s, and adults back then in 1983, when I was 12, were trashing and saying the same thing about Madonna, Prince, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Run DMC, Poison, the same was said about Snoopy Dogg and Dr.Dre, Bones thugs and Harmony and so forth. At least with Gaga, she has provided a renansance to enjoy dance music. Thats what music is suppose to be about, having fun, partying, and living life the way you want. It was like that in the 1980s, and it should be like that today. Bottom line, don't like it don't have to listen to it.
I will agree that Madonna produced "trendy" music, but don't EVER compare this talentless idiot to Madonna. Madonna wrote and produced her own music. This talentless hag only knows how to write trite, idiotic lyrics that are produced strictly through a computerized voice generator. She has no talent. Her "music" is so copied from the other musicians of yesteryear. Her outfits aren't unique either. Any idiot can go out and make an ugly outfit and call it "unique" – problem is – there are millions out there that follow her because it's the "trend" and not because she's talented. She'll be done in 2 years... mark my word.
She does not have any talent. She is on the PR wagon that rolls around now and then.
I love L.GAGA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLaSxnmoOP8
People who use the world troll, trolling, or anything else Charlie Sheen may have said REALLY need to find another roll model!!!
I really used to like listening to Lady Gaga's music...not because it was necessarily anything spectacular, but because it made me feel good! Isn't that the point of music? She's gone a little too far for my taste anymore, so I haven't checked out her new music.
As to all you crazy people doing the flame war thing...what good does it achieve? Many things are just better left unsaid.
SHE USES GAY RIGHTS TO PROMOTE SATANISM AND MIND CONTROL...She doesnt care about sales...its not about the price...Its about THE MIND CONTROL.
Lady Gaga a "superstar?" Really? I think she's nasty.
Quoting eras of music history does'nt make one old..it makes one educated..because as they "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it" and that axiom is all too true in music history as well..and Im certainly a rather young guy..if you love music you always love it and for me study it...rather than chase trends or try to be popular..Gaga has some talent..but its truly time to take it to the next level or enter historys dustbin with other "next big things..media sensations" of the past..musics road is littered with countless cases..todays big trend is tommorows embaressment..Y know is anyone jamming on the Macarena..No? well millions of buyers and club goers did..evelution in Music seperates the wheat from the chaff
I would love to see one of those chicks from L7 beat the crap out of that dude GaGa!
if you don't care or don't know who she is then don't comment.
How is she a man hmm? Theres only one way you could provenly know. u dirty dirty haters and you grandmas 2
Who is lady gaga??
My wife loves her!!
See what happens when you listen to this crap?!!
10-1 she's a man.
Proving that even at 99 cents she is more of a circus act than anything. Time to go away.
Lady GaGa is ok but the music she has now isnt as good as before. The fame has changed her and she is not the same. she turned into one of those stupid singers who let fame go to their heads!!
Illuminati Goddess. We used to feel you not knowing that the devil was the one actually doing the job. Enough with the bull... Lady Gaga, u need Jesus. Get out of that cult and get a life
Evidently all the little monsters and h o m o's have tired of her schtick. Good. -Art
I like Gaga. But Gaga's new music isn't nearly as good as her past. It seems like she is trying to hard. Maybe she's having writer's block. I can't stand listening to her new music. What happened to enjoyable music such as Just Dance or Papparazi? Her new stuff is boring and harsh. Not cool.
She has a dick
Haha! ONLY a 170,000 copies?!? Puh-leaze, how many albums can you sell in a week? Yeah, thought so. Get off her back.
Well no wonder it sold so much! 99 cents? LOL now they try to talk about her huge sales numbers? Such BS
This disturbs me that peoe can be that much into an artist whos mainstream and prob doesn't even write half of the songs she sings if not more. There are far more many great artists that write and produce their own songs. Yet only this garbage makes it to the radios because our youth have terrible taste in music! Hell the artists coming out of the UK surpass what gaga will ever be in my eyes and thats a true artist! Only thing the radio is doing is destroying trance and dance with their crappy mainstream produced hip hop/pop songs that every artist seems to just put a good electro beat in and everyone dumb enough to not see what it really is falls in love with it.
If you have REAL talent you do NOT need to dress or act like an idiot to get people to listen to your music. A real musician should be able to make it on that real talent alone. People who need a gimmick of some kind like this person (?) GaGa, know they lack the talent to just sing so they have to be strange to get anyone to pay attention. People have told me they go to her concerts to see just how wierd she will get. NOT for the so called "music".
ah but of course..the discounted sales..the hype..then it wears off..and then your left with..reality.You know why music sales suck right now ..all of the so called"hot" new albums by new artists do not hold up to a year of listening..they aare dated immediatly..style over substancethis musical era is reminiscnet of the period of 57-63 ..empty pablum..
Not sure why, but I read the article (bored), personally not a fan but I am a producer/engineer and I must say the one thing that jumps out at me after reading so many of your comments is that many of us are simply not happy with ourselves so we focus are demented opinions on matters that almost always have nothing to do with ourselves personally per say. Bottom line is this society is and always has been driven more by monetary value than moral values so with that being said if you are one of many without a job right now you probably hate reading that some beef costume wearing artist (regardless of gender) is selling album (regardless of price) at such a rate. Where as on the flip side there are those that are employed/respected that have no need for hatred and simply respect open forums such as this one in hopes that one day we can all come together to make this world a better place. Peace and blessings to everyone but the media putting a twist on everything. http://www.mnjmusic.com (for those that appreciate music as much as we appreciate one another)
I could care less about her music. Don't hate it, bont love it. What I can't stand is the crap she tries to pass off as clothing. Wear something that is at least a little normal.she dresses worse than a circus clown. Another one who doesn't seem to know how to dress herself is Kesha.
Perhaps the sales dropped off because everyone who wanted to purchase the album already did?
I think she has talent, but I'm not into pop music all that much. The only times I've ever seen her has been on TV shows that I have DVR'd and after a minute or so I have the luxury of fast forward. I do this with country musid as well, kind of the same, once you hear one song, you have heard them all.
Red Flags, my mistake would never want to do anything to embarrass you. Lady Gaga has the weight of the world on her shoulders, am confident that Born this Way will be your biggest album ever!!!!!!
Judas ...dats the song
Hey, I challenge anyone on this blog to sell more albums. Ha!
Secretly, everybody wants the fame and are SO MAD they don't have it!!!!
Bahahahahaha.... Looks like y'all are the ones caught in bad romance!
As to the question of the actual gender. Guess we will have to see if, years from now, it either pops out a mini gaga or gets prostate cancer. Only time will tell.
Lady Gaga is a worthless t*at. She's an artist as much as Paris Hilton is a human being. Sure, people mistake her message for being pro-gay, but I believe it's more so about her getting her name out there, and just shameless self-promotion. She is nothing more than a vapid pop star, and she will fall to the wayside just like Lily Allen, or anyone of that ilk.
I cant stand any thing about lady gag...ugly as a fish and like the comment above me...she uses filters etc to mask and correct her voice..Oh yea all the ward robe changes...lets see who has done that many times before..madonna. stefani...jlo...etc etc she will fade quick
Cool that you are unique but the music is a little silly
Let us discuss talent, shall we? Lady uses electronic masking in some of her songs. She wears outlandish outfits. She goes platinum in a week by the way of 99 cent sales. She sings about topics that are buzzworthy at the moment. She has a barbie body. Aretha franklin didn't, did, didn't, did, and didn't, and still remains one of the most talented, respected, and loved singers of all time. And aretha can belt out songs that capture the soul without a single note from a musical instrument. Take that, lady gagme. By the way, most people that wear meat outfits wind up in rubber rooms with jackets that buckle in the back. Think about that. Oh, enough with the androgenous stuff. Its already been done, and done far more creatively. I could sneeze, fart and belch an album and sell as many or more for under a buck each, and do it with more talent, to boot.
OMG – finally some good news!!!
Well not for nothinq ... Her New Sonqs aren't qettinq as much Play &! the music, in my opinion, isn't as qreat as her 1st Album's Sonqs were !. iHeart qaqa but the Thinq about Cominq out w| a Banq is yu have to KEEP the Fire qoinq !. Jus becuz yur on top doesn't mean yu Chill &! Get Comfortable ... It Means yu have to work yur Butt off even Harder from that point on !. Def. NOT the last of Gaqa so 'Haters' yall can qet that out yur heads !!!!!!!!!!!!
Did i read this right? Adele sells 170k albums at, what, ten bucks each? lady sells over a million at under a buck each, and you people call her the genius? which one made the most profit? the big m fast food joint may sell burgers for a buck, but that doesnt mean they are better quality. i could plastic wrap dog poop and sell a couple million for a buck each, wait, i think that is what lady weirdo just did. basically, you can sell anything to a lot of people if they consider it a bargain. just ask p.t. barnum. a sucker born every minute.
To Chris on June 11th.........
I wholeheartedly disagree with you and your grandmothers listening observation, mainly because you are only speaking for yourselves while playing games at the table. Lady Gaga does absolutely nothing for me, and I feel sad for those who enjoy her as much as you do. Gaga is a fake, hiding behind a mask and is nothing but a theatrical mess. Her music conforms around this imagery and I, for one, can't see beyond it.
With other music from various artists, most of the highest regarded musicians don't need the theatrical image because their talent screams volumes and nothing else is needed.
Gaga fans... I believe this artist will one day fade away like so many others do that quickly run out of musical substance. You can only be a clown for so long before human beings tire of it.
You know what....you can all suck it because baby, i was born this way :) i knew that line would come in handy
Thanks, somebody else gets it.
Let us salute modern music:
I almost peed myself – the line did keep repeating....That is sure to be a hit!
I wouldn't even buy it for 99 cents. Amazon offered it for that price for two days. It still did not tempt me. I just do not see the allure at all.
I would pay way more money for an independent artist who actually did not sell out to a label. Why? Because those artists actually have talent and work hard to stay true to themselves and their art. What I have previewed from this album is not worth listening to at all. I'd rather listen to nails down a chalkboard.
Ima little monster for life!!! ^.^ Love you Gaga! <3
It's time that Gaga focus on singing and go easy on the theatrics – this might be the way to widen her following. Anyway, those record sales number are still impressive given that music is not top priority for many consumers.
Lady GG can sing, but she is moron and just shut up.
I would not call a cd that sold a million copies in it's first week a fail. It's already sold hundreds of thousands of single downloads......3 singles which have already hit the top 10. Both of the video singles have sold and still are selling in huge #'s. The week BTW came out Gaga's other cds started selling more copies. Hey & it is still #2 & #15 on I-tunes. Would think right now every record label wishes they had a cd failing this badly :)
lady gaga is garbage. her music sucks and she is a foul mouthed pig.
monster HATERS love u gaga..
Oops! It happaned. 99 cents trash.
What a bunch of balls
Overblown hype. These days all you need to become a celebrity is minimal to NO talent and say/do/wear outrageous things. Gaga came up with the idea for her meat dress while on a cocaine bender. What does that tell you?? The quality of music has gone way downhill in my opinion and Lady Gaga is a prime example of that.
I wonder if that could be due to the fact that Adele actually has talent.. HA!
She can sing but the songs and lyrical content suck? Plus her fans are just like Justin Bieber fans. Crazy. They beat up the drummer of the Black Keys because he called her Madonna. She is.
no wonder it's crap... get to that http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
What is with this guy in the video and his metal nails? He certainly doesn't look like the type. When he put the tablecloth on the table, I thought he was a waiter but, no. I don't get it. What I get is a guy who needs to clean up, work out and eat less. On second thought, it must be a homage to Lady Gaga's nonsense.
I personally liked this cd alot more than her last one. She does dance music that would normally be heard in clubs & I loved it.
They asked Obama to show his birth certificate, they should ask gaga to show her *ussy if she has one.
Lol @ she/it
All we hear is Radio Gaga, radio goo-goo , radio blah blah. Lady Gaga someone still hates you.
That's not a woman... It's a man baby!
Aye, I still say she, er' it, is a man.
I admit I bought her album last week – and I didn't want it. Amazon offered me 20GB of cloud storage for it.
I'll use that space to load it up with GOOD music, no gimmicks.
We need more cowbell!
How about GaGa, Sarah Palin and daughter Bristol in a three-way biscuit bump?
To me it is very simple: She put shock over danceability.
Let me explain. Sure, her first album "The Fame Monster" had a lot of wild costume stuff in the videos, and over time that got wilder, but at its heard it was a dance album with dance tracks, great club hooks, and stuff that made you want to get up and dance. Before the wild video stuff took off, it was the music which made the album.
I believe she took the message that she had to be more and more out there to shock people, but it wasn't all about that with the record. She has a section of fans that is very vocal and that she identifies with, but she needs to balance it with danceability and beat in the music.
As wild as the videos and stage shows are, the audio is what drives most of the sales and the danceability and groove has to be there for that. If people don't get that "hook" out of it, they won't buy it, and that will cut into sales over time even if the hard core fans run out and buy her new tracks the first week.
The real problem is that people want music for free.
They won't work for free, but if you make music, you should.
It used to be the record labels that were screwing the artists. Now the fans are, too.
For me, it's all hype and costume, like a masquerade, and other than that, nothing there. She's sleazy and offensive. Just like the one she's copying, Madonna.
Jessie J now she has talent did yall see her on snl
He comes the crash.
This is a truly marginal performer that should have put the same energy in the art as she has put in running her stupid head in public regarding business she is ignorant about. Time for the music industry to let some of the truly talented get their shot now. Next.
I have to say I've never heard her sing but am astonished @ the postings of some people. America is a FREE country with free speech but let's use some wisdom in posting our feelings.Lady GaGa isn't for everyone ay more than Elvis or the Beatles were. Everyones taste is different. Respect others even if you don't agree with them. Afterall people don't bash you for every choice you make out of respect for you...
Well as a matter of fact, Gaga has made some pretty unprovoked and blatant "bashing" a regular part of her whole circus sideshow image. She would have been best off performing, instead of talking publicly like she is somebody wise and credible. She can shut up and climb back into the egg she was hatched from. She is on the way out, fortunately.
let's be real.. these "record sales" are inflated LIES... 99 cent sales really? obviously we should count every 14 sales of these to be realistic of an actual album sale. Way to over hype bull crap – and silly of you people who believe it.
Besides she puts on a facade 24/7 and has horrible taste.
You people need lives
of course the sales went down...people fell for the hype and blitz but when it came down to it, the "art" was rehashed techno and disco....so they all figured out it pretty much sucks.
YEAH THIS ALBUM WAS NOT TOO GOOD
Flash in the pan. Good riddance Gaga. Lady? Hmmmm not so much.
I feel so bad for lady Gaga. But the album does suck.
She already sold over 1 million how many more do they need to sell???
Lucky for Gaga she finally embraced Weird Al Yankovic's Parody of her Born this Way song. When Al's CD drops later this month, she'll likely get some fallout/re-popularizing sales.
By the way the cd sell over million because amazon put it on sell for .99 other while it will not sell that much in the first week,becaue it suck so bad......that I want a refund.........sorry but its true.
The difference between Madonna & Lady Gaga is....Madonna didnt always rely on gimmicks to get her in the papers, or to have album/tour sales.
Gaga thinks for some reason or another must always have a gimmick.
I totally agree. I think Lady GaGa is incredibly talented but for some reason she is "stuck" on all the gimmicks which I believe is losing some of its fascination and outrage. Also, due to the politically correct environment we live in no one wants to admit that "perhaps it has to do with the theme of this CD?" It is not about being "anti-gay" but that doesn't mean that you have to be Pro-Gay.
Doesn't change the fact that she can write a decent tune and is entertaining. People can love her or hate her as long as its one or the other. Controversy Creates Cash
Maybe gay people and people with no musical taste finally realized she/it sucks!
I'm not going to get into the mud-slinging going on in this forum, but I will say this: Gaga's album sold more in its first week than any of her contemporaries. Most people who were going to buy the album bought it in the first week. Considering that most music listeners don't even purchase full albums anymore (and many that do rip them illegally from torrent sites), it's not like Gaga is die off from poor album sales. She has sold a combined total of about 2.5 million copies so far. That's pretty dang good, considering most of it came the first week.
Wow....People still buy albums??
I buy "songs" i like. I only buy the album/cd for artists i fully support. That reminds me I need to pre-order Weird Al Yankovic's new cd... thanks!
I suspect the album will sell for a long time, though not a million units a week. I was never much of a fan, but being overexposed to the CD by my fiancee I gotta admit there are some great tracks on it.
Talent? What talent? She seems like she's on drugs. Her songs don't make sense, her Halloween costumes are just to get attention so weirdos will follow her and worship her. If she had talent, she wouldn't need ridiculous costumes to get attention, good talent gets it's own attention. You people defending her so strongly need to get a life, stop worshipping regular human beings.
My farts sound better.
This is because the first week the album was being sold online for .99 cents. That meant all the ten year and under crowd could afford it. Now it's only the freaks who are paying for it. I wish someone would take that tape of her nips and put it over her face Casey Anthony style.
This is the digital age, or so we forget? Her album is being shared world wide now, there is no accouting means for how many people have her new album. Everyone knows it's not "album sales" that make a current ainger successful; it is concert sales and merchandizing.
So, the Madonna wannabee shot off her Anti-American mouth in Mexico and now her latest album is a bust. Gee, do you believe in kharma?
Those nelly looking chubby gay dudes who wear large plastic over sized white aviator glasses "just love Lady Gaga" (quotes in a high pitched voice with a pronounced lisp)...
Say concert on hbo she s got more skills than any of you fecal specks
Lady Gaga is very entertaining! Love her songs!
You are gay just not flamboyant
Stefani Germanotta is not a musician. She's a marketing icon at the mercy of her managers and sound engineers.
I must say that Gaga is very talented, but on another note...she is a complete freak. I personally cannot srand her music. Maybe if I was a flamboyant gay male...
Lady Germadonna has a new album out ? Who knew.
I hope this is the beginning of the end for this hack!
I find it quite humorous that trolls take the time to post pointless and thoughtless comments. The lack of cleverness is kinda sad actually.
people stopped buying her album because there is no need. Theres youtube and you can download the whole dam album online for free. If u cudnt download songs for free, gaga wudve sold over 4 million copies, i guarantee u.
I love all my monsters and the negative people remind me of all the haters from my school.......get over it! Monsters keep believing!!!!
One should listen to VA employees and patients and their beliefs toward women class/status.
Lol@ ladygaga fans. That is all.
Why do people continue to support this talentless drag queen? She uses autotune and her singing still sucks, and her lyrics are garbage. Sad to think that this hoe bag is making money while true artists broke.
While the "born this way" message is a good idea, it is quite incomplete. It should be remembered that there is nothing inherently wrong with being another way than the way you were born. You can't defend a LOT of things (tattoos, body mods, new life choices, on and on etc.) with "I was born this way-hey". I'm not a little monster, but I do appreciate Lady Gaga; she incites a lot of healthy discussion.
Lady GaGa is good, but her whole 'being gay is okay' thing is retarded. No its wrong and will never be ok.
Most musicians in the industry today survive on their "singles" being hits and touring. Albums just no longer hold the same importance that they used to. It's remarkable that her album did that well to begin with considering she only released a few singles prior to the release. When they choose the next single for radio play, it will bump up sales for that single and make a few more people interested in the album.
NOT 1 Single deacent album uir song has been released since G&Rs Use Your Illusion 1 and 2. Before that nothing deacent since the very early 1980s. If you want to hear real nusic listen to real late 60s and 1970s rock. Young people listen to pop and think it is wonderful. It is just bubbleegum music. POP.
Grow up....this third comment isn't any funnier than your first two.
no talent no sales
I'm pushing 50 and am of a generation that grew up exposed to new music constantly. Whether it was punk/new wave/post-punk when I was in high school or the explosion of metal and new pop when I was in college, I have gotten used to there always being something new right around the corner. My tastes are pretty eclectic but I do like the occasional good pop song and it's obvious that Lady Gaga is not just some generic artist - she is incredibly talented and has a knack for writing perfect pop songs. The fact that the lyrics are often of the singer/songwriter variety makes it more special because I really don't think there are many in the genre who can pull that off as well as she does.
For all those posters who put down old people:
We were born, raised, turned into teenagers, had as much fun or more than the youngster of this generation, then we turned middle age, later, yes, old. So, we already went through all the stages of life.
You haven't yet!!! Think about it.
That's because we all know that "Madonna" is the true queen in record sales and everything else. LOL at lady "caca" Gaga!
This is what happens when an artist makes real music with a message and the public can't handle it. Madonna was the same way. People couldn't handle what she was making us face as a society and they dogged her too. Gaga will survive and continue to anger idiotic people who are too afraid to contemplate what she is addressing. I like any artist who takes risks, and she has gsined a new fan in me.
She is 12 years old...not that deep/origional.
Yeah...I decided to buy a pooper scooper instead.
LOL....that's a better buy!
Lady Gaga could change to Lady Gay Gay. Your alienating straight sHooteRRRss everywhere.
Last time I checked, moving a million units in a week in this declining music industry is one hell of an accomplishment. Just because it was an 80% drop doesn't mean it was unsuccessful at the slightest. Not only did fans rush to make sure she sold over 2 million albums worldwide in a single week but 174,000 units in the second week in the United States is still major. Say whatever you want about her but she's got it made. I still find it amusing on how many people act like music critics and claim that Gaga's "15 minutes are up". Well, Born This Way went platinum within one week despite how much it apparently "sucked". You were saying? I'm barely even a fan of this woman and I can realize the impact she's made and she's still making.
I bought her new album and I liked it. Like her previous 2 albums, I think the best songs are the ones that have never made it to the radio (my favorites on the new CD are "Americano" and "SheiBe". Personally, "Born this way" and "Judas aren't nearly her strongest on the album. And for anyone who thinks she has no talent, I would ask that you go to YouTube and listen to her sing "Speechless" before you assume– the songs that make it to the radio are great pop radio hits but her best songs don't make it on the radio.
I think it's interesting that people get so worked up over her, so much hatred over something so silly. And all of the stereotyping– not all of her fans are teenagers, and not all of her haters are old fuddy-duddys– I love her and I just graduated from professional school, and my grandmother and I are the biggest Lady Gaga fans in our family. I think maybe the way she has polarized people is a tribute to her status– she seems to be following in the footsteps of Madonna, moreso than Britney Spears.
I think obama's ass listens to lady gaga. Obama has a butthole.
So even at under a buck nobody wanted to buy her "music?"
i mean newport
gotta agree with joe...look up queen for some talent. Gaga isnt for me but good for her for making millions off those who think she is. The little monster stuff need to go though, very stupid.
Yeah no one care what people say. The world still loves you Lady gaga. Number 1 in 13 countries says it all and this 99 cents only concern the US and billboard hot 100. Europe, South America, Africa and Asia still loves you!!!!!!!!!!
Or we could talk about music that isn't completely generic and a screaming ripoff of Madonna. You know, whatever.
I don't think too much about this woman but sometime it appears to me as she is a master manipulator either way if you love or hate her your still giving her fame for all the right and wrong reasons she must clearly know what she's doing when she decides to run around in her costumes and make fame of fools that what too go with what's in . In all honesty I admire gaga for how far she has come with all her crazy stunts.
I may just be interested in having people visit my site but I have a legitimate comment. Although her album may suck to those who say it sucks, and I personally haven't heard it, but I know for certain this is The United States of America where some of these trash mouth texts came from. It is sometimes embarrassing to know these degenerates represent our country when speaking to such a large audience. Please think before you speak and maybe we all, as Americans, would not be bad mouthed by so many citizens of other nations. Stop being such whining losers, pull up your pants, read a book, get an education, and do something productive for society. Maybe the artist's music is captivating for existing fans because they, for starters, are already fans or perhaps it, so to speak, "grows on you" and gets better the more you listen to it. In my opinion, that is the sign of a brilliant musical artist. Now my curiosity has made me want to buy it. See? Brilliant. I love Capitalism. If you approve of this message kindly visit my site and find an advertisement that interests you. Thank you. Feel free to email me if you do. :-)
If you like lady gaga, you are either a twink or a retard.
I guess maybe I'm old fashioned, but what is a TWINK?
I'm a doctor and I don't even know what a "twink" is. Maybe it's slang for being gay? Like, a fairy? In that case... no.
AHHH. All the insecure haters are out today. Hate her if you must, I like the message she is sending, but I wouldn't expect the internet trolls to understand that. While you complain, she is making money, where are your album sales at?
@Me...I don't hate her, but what is a twink???
BORN THIS WAY has legs and will have steady sales as more singles are released with videos associated. The album went over a million opening week. Still sizable sales the second week. Some people don't understand or like Lady Gaga and make rude comments. The 99 cent promotion by Amazon was offered to promote their Cloud storage system. It was a great deal.
My cat sings better.
hey Willy Wonka Bar way to getting help yourself u misinform delusional freak u dont know me or what the hell u even talking about
Ah, I see many trolls vilifying her music AND sales numbers.
To put things in a realistic perspective for a moment, her album just went platinum in a week.
Platinum is the industry standard of a hit album.
I like the new album. It's music...you need to shut up to enjoy music.
It's all about the fan base. Some peeps liked her first album or bought into her image so much that they are going to claim the second album is the best album of all time, whether they even liked it or not (though no doubt they can force themselves to like the album). The truth is that Duran Duran's comeback album ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, a candidate for pop album of the year, has at least 9 tracks on there that are superior to BORN THIS WAY'S best track. But it's all image. If you don't identify with (or want to like) a group of British men pushing age 50 who broke onto the scene in the early 1980s with a nancy boy image, you're going to think it's absurd that a modern 25-year-old reincarnation of Madonna could put out a hollow, inferior product. And yet ...
Hmm my minds made up night haters and little monsters(thats all thats here)i've given up on the haters there's no change them. paws up
Way ,way,way overrated...just recycled Madonna. Look up Queen Rocks Montreal on youtube for real artists.
Not every song you create needs to be an anthem.
Wasnt his/her album going for a penny on amazon??? Wonder how many delusional fans bought more than one copy. Gayga probably bought some herself, shoot they were only going for a PEENY!!
I'm not a fan of the music either as some have expressed but I wonder why people are attacking her personally. Even though gagas music isn't for me, I respect her hustle and she makes a lot of people happy so I just don't listen to her. However talking about who she is as a person is silly
Her new album flop no matter how you try to spin it. For all the media hype you would think she was the second coming of Christ for the music industry. A lot of people bought the album because it was 99 cents and that's how much they thought the album was worth. She should have had stronger sales the second week with the way the media talks about her. I can't imagine 3rd week sales yikes.
All show. She might have some talent but she doesn't display it in het simple music. No sane person wears outfits like that. LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! We see you...please go away.
Of course she says "Look at me!" She's a freakin' entertianer you dumbazz! Every entertainer wants people to look at them. Only people's whose lives are failing make moronic comments like yours. Poop is a perfect name for you, dikkhead.
Millions of entertainers don't act like this nutbag. Sorry...you loose.
Poophead, the word is lose, not loose. How can anyone take you seriously when you can't even speak basic english? And "No sane person wears outfits like that"?...... ever heard of Elton John? He did pretty well for himself.
@The truth, your grammer sucks
and u just suck!! dude u have some dam nerve to comment on grammar with Ur one liners! I'm using a freaking phone with broken keypad and slow Internet to log on and reply here and it would not let me fix or delete the typos..but whats Ur excuse???
Looks like yours does too, adam. And your spelling is no better either. The word is "grammar." lmao
@DARTH VADER, star wars nerd why don't you go play with your lightsaber and do the last word you said.
Shes made good with her cds she have ppl are soo mean to her u need to nice to her shes made nice and she cool too i talk to her on facebook too u really dont have to tell her nothing u dont like her soo leave her alone then
I don't know if your comment is a joke or what? None of it makes sense...can't understand a word you're saying...no comma, no period anywhere...just run-on sentences. The "dumbing" down of America at its best!
Hey..that is no way to talk to a 6 year old.
@bobo, U have no talent.Also I got to admit most of her costumes suck.
160 million dollars can't be wrong!
Last album I bought, Framptom Comes Alive. Btw-who is Lady Gaga? -Art
Start my last post with an I by the way.Also stop pasting melissa's comment.
I'm don't like or hate gaga but i'm not sure yet.
Over a million sales the first week at $0.99 for the whole album = Hyped...
Only 174,000 albums sold the next week = overhyped...
YA OVER HYPRED OVER RATED OVER EXPOSED EVERY THING ABOUT HER IS OVER! SHE BELIVED IN THE MORE IS MORE PHILOSOPHY!
Melissa when clearly 1,270,000 people do.

FACTS IS CLEARLY 1,270,000 PEOPLE DID NOT BUY THIS! JUST LOOK ANYWHERE ON ANY FREAKING MESSAGE BOARD FORUM OR YOUTUBE WHERE U WILL SEE ALL HER LITTLE BRANWASHED DELUSIONAL STANS SAYING THEY GONNA BUY/DOWNLOAD THIS LIKE 100 COPYS 20 COPYS 10 COPYS EACH SO THAT ADDS UP TO WHAT ABOUT MAYBE 10.000 WHO PEOPLE ACTUALY BROUGHT THIS?..GEEZ.... I MEAN THESE ARE SOME OF THE SAME FOLKS HAMPPERING AND REPLAYING HER VIDEOS HUNDRENDS OF TIMES OVER AND OVER A DAY TO GET THE VIEW COUNTS UP ON SITES LIKE YOUTBE....THEY EVEN ADMIT TO IT IF U BOTTER READING ANY OF THE COMMENTS ON HER VIDEOS.. THEY EVEN SPAM OTHER ARTISTS VIDEO COMMENT PAGES..
DOGING OTHER ARTING AND TELLING PEOPLE TO KEEP RECLICKING AND REPLAYING HER VIDEOS
AND THESE SAME FOLKS WHO MAKE MUTIPLE TWEETER AND FACEBOOK ACOUNTS TO ADD MORE FOLLOWERS TO HER...I DONT KNOW WHY ANY OF THIS IS NOT COVERED OR INVESTIGATED IN THE MEDIA?
SHE IS ONE HELL OF A CON-ARTIST NOT ONLY THE AMAZON CHEAT TO GET HIGH 1ST WEEK SALES FIGURES BUT EVERYTHING ELSE FROM THE BEGINNING OF HER CAREE HAS BEEN A CHEAT AND RIPOFF PHILOSOPHY COME ON GET REAL PEOPLE! THIS IS THE NEW FAST CHEAP WAY TO FAME NOWADAYS!
you could have just said she sucks.
Calm down now....don't want you stroking out buddy!
@ THE TRUTH........... Get help! Fast! There's something seriously wrong with you. Wow.
Yea....its the fava beans I think...get me everytime..
@Nemo, thats whey you got so much gas.
@Beerburger, She has youtube??? I'm not a monster or gay(no offence)so thats new to me.
I would like to eat her liver with fava beans and a nice chianti! FFFffffffffaa
@Come On, Hmph like it matters.
"Lady" Gayguy is supported by her legion of ga-y postbots on Youtube.
@Melissa you have no fame and your probably too cowardly too even show your face online
How much do you think she owes Madonna in royalties?
Warning long post.1st off the sales are down because a lot of people already got it.2nd off there is no way that lady gaga fans are going too stop liking her.Then there is the elderly hating, seriously your going 2 be old youself 1 day and to the elderly sorry if kids don't listen to mostly dead people (best way to put it). If you don't like the music don't listen to it seriously. Also to people who don't like gays it is none of our business that's how I see it. You cow wannabes are idiots mooing.Finally nemo u always have gas most likely
Adam, yu are way too young to be this angry. Sad day.
when does it go on sale of the bargain bin price of 2c?
I still wont buy it, I have better things to buy like a lint roller, but just wondering
Sales are dropping because she suck. FYI for you losers that calling Irwin or whatever his name is, you will be his age someday too. Have a little respect for the old ppl.
We talked about this on Minute14 dot com! No one really wanted the album, they just wanted it because it was a dollar. Its easier to stomach losing a buck as opposed to losing ten...
You all sound like dorkey little fairies: "Oh, Mother Monster, please give all us pathetic little mothers round the clock ememas, as we listen to ÿour crappy no talent garbage! GaGa needs a serious humbling experience. Don't worry, for that day is coming very soon, lol.
Gaga is a fad. She will pass. Every generation has hit makers that are bright n shiny n go up like a rocket. Then they crash and burn. Gaga is ok. Not my music. Hey kid! One day you will blink and God No, you will be in that aisle at the grocery storE being made fun off by some punk kid. That is, if you don't become a victim of a drive by shooting. Geez, when I was a kid, we didn't have those! People were safe standing in their yards and doing everyday things. Maybe the music of today is a symptom of the Loss of innocence in America today. Life was so much sweeter back in the day!I would not want to be a kid growing up today. The world has become a mean, disguesting place! Even our children are now ugly!
Guns! What ever happened to the good old fashioned fist fight??
Wow really to many hater to respond 2 but still won't stop me.
Pimp slap the who
NO...never pimp slap The Who.
hey tiger blood, what's up
GaGa is pimpin the gay community to up her sales and popularity but too many of you all are too stupid to realize it. Her weirdness is what made her.
I love Lady Gaga; she is the most talented entertainerever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She gives me gas!
I KNEW IT!!!
I read the news last week that Adele winsome album "21" was FINALLY kicked out of No 1 spot (after 8 weeks on the top) – it was by the Madonna-wannabe called Lady Gaga. I just knew it was due to just a stupid promotion and naive fans who rushed to buy her album I knew and wish that the lame Gaga's album would be out of sight only after 1 week. 90% of Gaga's songs are totally lame and boring. Didn't she release four singles in a row before the album release in desperation to build momentum? And HERE WE GO! LOL LOL!
When will these journalist and music people finally realize that Lady Gaga is extremely overrated and exagerated?
Adele has no 1 album since two months ago, and she didn't even release other singles. I purchased Adele's album last week hoping Adele would re-claim the no 1 spot she deserves, and kick the hell of of this Gaga thing.
I love them both, but '21' is the best. More should come out as singles than 'Rolling..', which would sell even more albums. If Katy can knock off 5 mediocre songs from her album, and Adele still has 'Someone' Like You' and 'One and Only' in waiting what gives...But Gaga;s"Edge of Glory' and 'You and I' are quality numbers too. Is there any reason one can't like them both!
If you are born that way, I,m for abortion.
Her shock value has worn off. If she took the makeup away, the shock material value, and showed us her true musical talent she would open up a whole new demographic that would listen to her. I like and understand her music. She doesn't have to wrap it up in a "rocky horror picture show" (which I love) for me to listen to it. Good luck Gaga.
I agree. The gimmick, although fun, creative, and refreshing when she first arrived in the scene, is now wearing thin and starting to come off as a parody of herself. She's already world famous, why does she have to try so hard at trying to "shock" everyone with her costumes and religious undertones in her songs when she could just show off her talent, vocals, and piano skills? She also should get back at writing better lyrics, all of her songs on Born This Way was practically her just singing the same phrase over and over and adding her name in there. It's just lazy, she can do so much better and let her talent speak for itself.
Laquecia, Detrius and Tammy...fantastic names, btw...while I'm not indifferent to every generation's need for a Madonna, you all make me very glad that I no longer teach public school and can now choose. Just sayin...
This Madonnawannabe's time is over.
Stick a fork in her. She's done.
Lady Gagas sales slipped in the 2nd wk b/c everyone had at it when Amazon had the 99¢ album sale last wk. There wasnt anyone left who hadnt bought it already. Not a Gaga fan myself but I do have to say she is a very smart business woman. She was listed #1 on Forbes Musicians list. $90 million base worth plus $160 million from 2010s concerts/promotions ect. Pretty damn brilliant if you ask me.
"plus $160 million from 2010s concerts/promotions ect. "
while that may be good worldwide she came in 5th with her touring North America. Also still 40milion away from the 201million Bon Jovi pulled in
Lady Gaga can sing, she can play the piano very well. But her new album is just...awful. Friends of mine who love it say that they had to listen to it 9 times until they finally started to enjoy it. I already put my ears through one hour of hell, no way I'm going to add 8 more to it.
All the haters on this list find a job!! Lady gaga is set for life!! She could care less what u think!! This boy is a monster for life!!
There are only so many idiots out there. All of them bought the album. None left so sales fell. Simple economics.
@the person who said that their grandpa is 47 and is in a home LMAO my dad is 46 n I'm 20 so either your 5, your mom was a young ho, or your full of bull
Sometimes she looks like a good hump, sometimes not. Her music quality, however, is always in the loo.
Whoa. Has anybody mentioned that the sales of albums in general is WAY down, with most people buying one or two tracks on iTunes these days, and not buying whole albums anymore??? Gaga's achievement in moving that amount of ALBUMS in such a short time is amazing, a real achievement, and something to be really proud of. Who else could sell that much in a week, or even week 2? Probably only a band like U2. So Congrats, GAGA, you go, girl!
How many cd sales did the haters on this list sell last week? Haters! Goo Goo for gaga!! Adele should layoff the taco bell!!
Either a troll or very ignorant. Sounds like you dislike Adele because she weights more than GaGa. Weren't you "little Monsters" supposed to be about love and acceptance? Guess when another artist looks like a small threat to your "Monster Mother" love and acceptance goes right out the window.
People will buy anything for 99 cents.
Old rabbit teeth lady Gaga You are so lame.
I'm not a Gaga fan but there are some really good songs on this record. Much, much better than "Born This Way" and the "Judas" flop.
Madonna did it better.
your name makes me cringe ... "haters" is the most over used word. No matter how minor the difference of opinion, everyone is so quick to scream "HATER!!!"
Amen to that.
By Amen to that, I mean Madonna.
bullying!? BULLYING?! Where the F#*k did you grow up? Because people are floating around a few insults about an egotistical mildly talented POPular singer.. (cant wait for the next album! Shell finally be gone!!!!) you pretend they are being bullied and cry civil injustice. This world is becoming a place of panzied a$s chumps. Grow a pair, defend what you love, and move on
haterhater...are you mad yet??? Haterha....
This album is awesome! Little Monsters, don't listen to the bullies who are quick to criticize only because the bullies can't face their own flaws! Therefore they put others down. It's okay to not like someone's music. What a boring world it would be if we all liked the same thing. But to be so nasty is absurd! We love you Mother Monster!!!
Well said, Gaga4life.
Best post today, well said gaga4life.
Thats sounds absurd I thought bullies only bully because its a fun thing to do. Everyone has flaws that is a known fact. Last time I checked everyone likes to take showers in their lifetime I don't think is boring.
That's the most Idiotic thing to say. You people bring the same old argument to the debt "Don't listen to them because they just can't face that fact they're flawed!" or "You're just mad 'cause you're not making millions like her/him!" maybe you should take your head out of a celebrity's bum and face the fact that they make crappy things sometimes.
The album is crap, plain and simple. Don't try to make it sound better than it really is just because you're so in love with her.
I like Kelly Rowland and Shakir. It is to sell 2 million nowdays. Ppl catch on to junk.
I like Kelly Rowland and Shakira.
People still pay for music nowadays?
I HONK AT THE OLD FOLKS WHEN THEY ARE SHOPPING !
When I walk through first class in a plane, I ask any little kids I encounter if they had heard that Santa Claus had been murdered
I like to eat gassy foods and take the metro transit
LOL ! I do the same thing !
I just have a wide stance, that's all....
YEAH ! WE ROCK ! H8Rs and young peoples rule ! Old peolpe smell funny and get in the way because they walk too slow. When I get behind an oldey at the grocery store I always make beeping noises and pass them with my shopping cart.
Honey...and some respect to the older, because one day u will get there....time go by fast rememeber.
Those poor young people are always running around like their hair is on fire. What's the rush puppy??
They don't seem to spell very well. Sigh.
Teenagers are two year olds in bigger bodies, they cry and throw a fit when they don't get what they want. Go somewhere and cry Tammy because Lady GaGa is a talebtless, nasty LOSER!
My husband broke down and bought this and likes it. To me, it's just same old, same old dance music – big woo. There's really nothing new here.
Sweetheart, I hate to break it to ya... but there's a strong chance your husband is gay. Don't be surprised 10 years down the line!
Give Gaga a chance, she's in a "bad romance" after all.
Such negativity. The internet is for trashing people apparently.
You people sure do have a lot of hate in your hearts. everyone's different why judge?
She's far from different, does anyone remember when she was an over privileged rich girl who went to school with that other GEM Paris Hilton?
I am 12 years old by the way. You old people smell and walk toooo slow.
At least we don't need help wiping our as ses like some 12 year olds
You certainly are detritus.
Don't worry baby..you will get over it.
...I think somebody needs their stinky diaper changed.
Anyone who buys Lady Gaga's albums is nothing more than a musical tasteless political drone who has no ear for real talented music. She only sales albums cause she supports gays!
Did you graduate from elementary school? Lady Gaga SELLS, not sales, more albums than you will ever have friends.
"She only SALES albums cause she supports gays!" Wow. There is so much stupidity going on in that one little sentence. You should be proud there, Fonz. You successfully made the world laugh. At you.
Har har...those trolls get responses everytime.
:) GREAT ONE DEEZ ! :)
shouldn't it be "everybody loves your moooosic?
Gaga is ok.Singing wise Adele is much better.But Gaga is very entertaning
Don't you people ever get tired of posting hate messages about GaGa? I mean, it is literally the same people on every news story about Gaga posting the same tired things. So you don't like her music, FINE. Shut UP already. Don't read stories about here if you don't like her! Geez.
I actually come on here just to read the negative comments. This is to know there are still some people with common sense out there. We get it, she has an okay voice and as everyone keeps forcing on us....she can play the piano really well. I suppose my nana can be a superstar too then. Get over the hype, that is all it is.
er...I come here to read the the Gaga basing too.
I agree with Chris. Once you are around some years you notice that there is a new "star" out every couple of years. It is annoying how the media tells us, the public who is the next star. I see articles " so and so is having a moment" or what ever. I don't want someone being pushed in my face as the next big star. I can decide for myself if I like the person or not. It is the public who makes them stars and we can take it away if we want.
Lady gaga is rubbish! Pple who listen to her music are pathetic weirdos. she can't sing and has no talent just a washed up fame goat who needs to sit down. She disgusts me and is an insult to real artists!
People who think they can judge others simply on their taste in music are the most foolish of all.
Lady Gaga just youtube her live performances , make sure there acoustic.
Lady Gaga is fabulous. She can sing, dance and is lovely.
You miust have nothing better to do with your time than to check out who is buying what 24/7.
Now that sucks for you...... hate like yours will wear you down girl.
Ga ga you are blah blah no talent at all
Lady gaga, I Can't wait to the real original.. Lady Jah Jah..
Finkel is einhorn and einhorn is Davy Gaga. She has a penis and sets a terrible example for trannies everywhere
I wouldn't give her a fashion icon award for all the "it's pat" questions she gets daily
Todd is on to something...
Somebody should inspect her gadget before all the cyber bullying conspiracies turn into another bogus PSA. And also, she/he makes music?!??!? Really?!? Cant wait for the book so i can burn it at bible camp
Gender transition surgeries have come a long way... Not buying the staged boob pics at the fashion event the other day. Or her music.
You sir are a total moron. Didnt your mother teach you that if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all now go back under whatever rock you crawled out from under.
Who buys albums nowadays? Simple search on Pirate Bay will give you the full album plus extras... for FREE!! Take that you filthy lil monsters.
I think it was Irwin that did that. He is more than 50 years old so probably wears depends adult diapers.
@Irwin: are you a mental reject? Why are you moronically bashing someone because they're older than you. Go play in traffic and stop wasting the planets limited (ie air) resources.
Who is Adele? Wow. And I don't buy that you are a child, just childish. Good luck "growing up." Not sure what you can do about being a twerp.
@irwin you sound like a "genius". Don't be late for your medical marijuana handout.
I just poo'd myself
who is lady gaga
Kids listen to crap these days.
The woman you mazterbated to last night. ;)
I've only heard two tracks from this album, "Born this Way" and "Judas" and they are literally the worst songs I think I've ever heard. I don't understand how people can like that "music"
I didn't particularly care for Judas at first but it has grown on me. However, the other tracks on the album are much better– I don't regret buying it.
Unbelievable, people can just flip your question around an say, "I don't understand how people CAN'T like that music." You see dumbazz, whether someone likes or doesn't like something is called an OPINION. I know it's a hard concept for you to understand, but try figuring it out after you're done eating chalk in your playpen.
"I don't understand how people can like that "music""
With all the idiots in this country who bought the album realized how much it sucked so this was no surprise. But then again there are plenty of suckers there who will buy even Lady Gaga's toilet paper as a work of art and album.
Genio Illstupido you moron, the only reason it dropped in sales is because it was being sold for 99 cents the first week. If it had been the regular price, the number sold would still end up being about the same but more evenly split from week to week. And, yes, I realize there is a segment of the people that bought at 99 cents that would never have bought it at the regular price. But the point is that she sold a massive number of albums in the first two weeks... 1,174,000.
And Genio Illstupido, if you never listened to the album how would you know it sucks? And if you DID listen to it, then you must love Gaga. Which one is it? lmfao
Hey, are you some sort of music economist? Stop posting the same thing over and over. Sales dropped because people didn't buy it. If it takes a 99cent special just to push records, something is seriously wrong. Now, stop posting over and over you Lady Gagme Obsesses troll
pipinitrashbag that has to be the all-time stupidest comment ever posted! Duh!!! and i agree that sales dropped because, obviously, people would rather buy it for 99 cents than however much it costs normally. And no ones gonna buy something they have no interest in, even if its just 99 cents. how many artists sell that many albums in 2 weeks? Few!
"Sales dropped because people didn't buy it. "
Love Gaga, and BTW is quite good, but Adele deseves to be #1. '21' is the one of the best I've heard in over 50 years!
I agree. Adele is very good. Haven't seen her perform yet and unlikely to this time around. I did see Gaga in April and she was great. Good show, had fun. My daughter got some great shots. It's all entertainment folks. Move along, nothing to see here.
In over 50 years?!? Wow, grandpa, that's a long time. And by the way old timer, you don't need the "and BTW" part in your post.
Hey Kelly, you rude woman, he was using BTW as an acronym for "Born This Way," get it? Not an acronym for "By The Way." So, yes, it did need to be there.
Irwin and Brad are obviously the same person hahaha,, and it's also obvious that Kelly (not sure if a guy or girl) was joking about the BTW.
irwin and brad are obviously the same person hahahaha,, and i thought kelly was a guy oh well.
Obvious to who? What a dumb thing to say. So is assuming two posts days apart are from the same person. But I'm guessing noahk and noahk are the same person...the same person who thinks his comment is good enough to warrant posting twice (it's not, BTW...and that one stand for By The Way).
lmao i said the same thing when i read those – that irwin and brad are the same dude. what an imbecile.
It takes talent and wearing bologna doesn't bring sales.
she pretty talented, so talented she was accepted to julliard.
The bologna is in her pants.
Before you claim that she has no talent I'd invite you to go to YouTube and listen to her sing "Speechless." She actually has amazing vocal and songwriting ability, but unfortunately the record labels determine which songs make it to the radio, which are usually the dance hits where her talent isn't showcased. I was very pleasantly surprised when I bought her albums.
Everyone loves a cow ! MOOOOOOOOOO !
Her thunder theighs have seen their last hit record
Don't worry to the little hamster army, Lady Meat Suit will alsways have a future on VH1 "what were we thinking?!" countdown shows.
moooooo, you're milking this for everything it's worth. :)
Plus she is udderly rediculous ! moooooo !
Her sales are dropping so fast because she is one of you nasty human beings. If she was a cow like me her slaes would never go down ! Us cows can sing far better than any so called person that has ever lived ! Here are a few lyrics from one of my top hits: moo mo mooooo moo mooo. Yes ! Us cows know our music ! Bow down before us you durrrty humans !
People realized that you're not original, and extremely over-rated. Epic fail.
Being the 2nd best selling cd of 2011 after only 2 weeks is HARDLY and "epic fail". (And by the way, "epic fail" is the most generic, overused phrase of 2009.)
It really cracks me up when people love to emphasize sales numbers of albums as if it offers proof of how good they think music must be because it sold so much. I mean using this same train of thought because millions of people bought into fascism or communism over the past 100 years than they must be great ideas right? Success in the arts or music has little to do with a bunch of sales figures and mass consumption, it's about original expression, innovation and timelessness, Lady Gaga is hardly either. On to the next fad please.
Dillinger you moron, the only reason it dropped in sales is because it was being sold for 99 cents the first week. If it had been the regular price, the number sold would still end up being about the same but more evenly split from week to week. And, yes, I realize there is a segment of the people that bought at 99 cents that would never have bought it at the regular price. But the point is that she sold a massive number of albums in the first two weeks... 1,174,000. That's epic SUCCESS, not epic fail.
Good! I can't stand her... she is such a hypocrite.
Just how is she a hypocrite? Splain it Lucy!
Yeah... exactly how is she a hypocrite?
She does have talent but I think shes only a madonna redue..at the end of the day she just entertains, enough with the "teaching tolerance love etc etc"....if u feel she teaches u anything, u r pathetically weak minded!
Lori, when you say "Good" that her sales dropped big in the second week, you do realize that it sold 1,174,000 copies in those two weeks, right? Lmao. You're such an idiot.
Pipan, if you love the album so much, why aren't you out listening to it, instead of posting moronic insults here on a message board? Oh, right. It's because you realize it sucks, but you're desperately worried that your life will have no meaning if people stop blindly adoring a Pop Singer. You're like that sad loser at a party who hasn't hooked up yet, and is upset that everyone else is leaving.
Hey Mavent, it's funny how you constantly insult Lady Gaga and her fans on every article CNN has about her. Let's see, you can't stand her, yet you read all the articles about her AND post over and over again on them. Makes a lot of sense. You're not fooling anyone loser.
Exactly! It's because everyone bought it in the first week and couldn't wait!
That's not how it works. Typically the insane people all buy the album in the first week. Then it's supposed to sell to regular people based on word of mouth. The fact that it's not selling on word of mouth means that nobody is saying it's good.
Sorry Mother Monster! We couldn't wait to buy your album in a week! We little monsters had to have it! Amazing album by the way!
For comparison, Britney's new cd sold only 270,000 the first week...and only 76,000 the second week. Gaga's sales might be a big percentage drop off, but selling 170,000 in her 2nd week is still HUGE.
Oh for heaven's sake. Grow a personality. You don't have to claim to "love" something that sucks just because the other losers in your Loser Fanclub tell you to. I liked (and bought) Lady Ga-Ga's "The Fame Monster", and it was my favorite album of the year. But "Born This Way" just sucks, and the twits defending it remind me of the nerdtastic dweebs that kept insisting that "The Phantom Menace" was awesome.
Except it doesn't actually suck. While I agree it's not as good as "The Fame Monster", "Born This Way" has some really awesome tracks, a great theme that can't be expressed enough, and some really good groundbreaking (if not over-the-top) productions.
The worst thing about "Born This Way" was the hype, and that plus Gaga now being a mainstream (which everyone seems to hate because they want to fill special or they get tired of it... neither which Gaga herself could control in how successful she has become) is what hurt the album the most.
What I hate more than avid fans who defend at all cost is people who blindly hate at all cost AND they go out of their way to make sure they try to obsessively discredit the very person they hate. It's absolute ignorance at it's finest.
I bought her previous albums after hearing songs on the radio and found that I fell more in love with the songs that never even made it to the radio. While I didn't like "Judas," I bought the new album on the release day in anticipation of the other tracks that I might not hear on the radio.
In my opinion, she didn't disappoint. "Americano," "SheiBe," and "Heavy Metal Lover" are my favorites on the album. I also love "Marry the night" and "Bloody Mary." Again, my favorite tracks are the ones that never make it on the radio– I find that her vocals are better showcased in those songs. I am so glad I bought the album.
And to anyone who claims she has no talent, I would invite you to go to YouTube and listen to her sing "Speechless." It is great and shows how much vocal ability she truly has.
Lady Gaga is an interesting person and in my opinion, has brought something to the music atmosphere that is refreshing– it's both polarizing (as you can tell from these message boards) and uniting at the same time. My grandmother (who is 78) and I both love lady gaga, and my grandmother liked her album, too. She has served as a bonding point for us (the only other artist we both enjoyed was Elvis). The weekend after I bought the album, we sat in her dining room playing board games while listening to it and we both liked it.
Lady Gaga speaks about acceptance, tolerance, and love for each other. I think it's something we all need right now, in our society that seems to have problems accepting people for who they are, and with a government that only serves to polarize us and turn against each other. We could all use a little tolerance, and maybe a good dance hit while we're at it! ;)
Everyone here is forgetting that music is just music no matter how any artist singer is singing it. Talent, of course, only to those that could hit those high & low notes. Whats the difference between Britany & Gaga talent?
I'm a little scared to say anything bad about gaga. Last time I did this woman on here named Lisa fed me a drugged cupcake and I woke up three blogs over with no pants on.
Guest: you've got issues if you are serious.
Trendy/ fad oriented disposable dance music that will be forgotten in a few years like a "collectable" slurpee cup.
Anyone can use autotone what happened to real music anyways?
Finally people are figuring out she is a waste of talent space. Her songs make no sense and wow the crap she wears is just disgusting. Our youth are obsessed with her, look how they are turning out. Way to go gaga, way to dumb down our youth even more.
the album is not that good-sorry little monsters. sophmore effort failed.
Not only does new the album suck, but she's become completely annoying in the last year and a half. I don't think there's really anything left for her. It's all downhill from here.
""Born This Way" just sucks"... hey Mavent, is that a fact or an opinion? Idiot.
You're not little monsters, you are sheep to this idiot!!!
Dear Pipan: It's both a fact AND an opinion, dimwit. And you know it. The fact is that even YOU know her new album sucks. You're only defending it because you're a dork whose self-image relies on the validation of other people.
sorry mavent but i think you are the dimwit. first, that pippin dude never said he/she likes that album. and second, you need to look up the definitions of the words fact and opinion... he/she was right about that. all you had to say was it was your opinion.. but when you said it's a fact AND a opinion you went down in flames big time.
While I don't like watching her, I love listening to her! She has an amazing talent...but her visual is not pleasant to us "older" people.
You sound like a fool saying "no one wants your album", when clearly 1,270,000 people do. Some artists would be lucky to have 170,000 in their first week, let alone their second.
You are an ignorant fame wh**e. Just want to get your remark online. GaGa is a talented superstar!
******Um booyah tig bitties
Sorry gayga u suck and no one wants your album after the 1 million bafoons told us that it was garbage. Back to waiting tables for you!

Very limited talent not to mention delusional and somewhat psychotic. Costumes don't make a musician.
Unfortunately people buy this crap.

At some point in the song.especially this whole disney mde tweeen waze,if mozart were here today he'd laugh,beethovan would apprieciat being deaf lol
Yes, and you too will be old before you know what hit you. Enjoy your youth!
You sound like a 12 year old. Have some respect you schmuck.
Go back down in your parent's basement and shut up. You child is crying and needs some welfare formula.
Don't you have an infected piercing that needs cleaning or something?
Your grandfather is 47?
Quit trolling – You're not even good at it and your argument is too bizarre to believe.
"Keep on keepin' on"... one of the stupidest, most annoying lines ever created.
