Lady Gaga Rush Releases Second Single After "Applause" Flops

If you're in the mood for even more new music from Lady Gaga, your wish might be Universal Music Group's command. 

Music websites are reporting that since "Applause" has apparently struggled to gain a standing O from fans on music charts around the world, Gaga's parent record label (UMG owns Interscope) is apparently ready to rush-release a second ARTPOP single ahead of schedule. The new song "Swine" will likely see the light of day in early September, according to reports. 

Noise11 reports:

In Australia, ‘Applause’ has already fallen out of the Top 10 of the iTunes chart to number 15 after just one week on sale. In the USA, ‘Applause’ is down to no. 7 and in the UK it has fallen to no. 10.

The lack of interest has become a major issue for Universal Music, Lady Gaga’s record label. Universal will rush-release a second single ‘Swine’ within two weeks to hopefully reignite some interest in Gaga.

It gets worse. Lady Gaga’s YouTube views for ‘Applause’ have been questioned after her fanbase was encouraged to hit refresh to inflate the figures. Incentives were also given to fans who were encouraged to buy multiple copies of the song to win a prize in an effort to upstage ‘Roar’, the new song by Katy Perry.

What do you think? Is "Applause" failing to resonate?

Gone are the days when Gaga was named the final heir to the throne of Queen of Pop Today, the press and the critics take their statements with suspicion which exaggerates its music and its importance in the art world, while Twitter and Facebook begs his Little Monsters to buy multiple copies of their albums and singles.I have not fallen into that game, for me she is overrated.His talent is of course debatable.

Lady GaGa




If you're single hits top 10 on iTunes at all it's not a flop people, that's actually still really successful.  if you don't like the music, don't listen to it.  That simple. Stop the hatred, start the music.

Meanwhile. "what the fox"... say. Anyone can get a top 10 hit

I have a feeling Lady Gaga doesn't care about making music fun to listen she just cares about being famous. 

I couldnt agree more. She made so much hype about Applause before its release. Interviews, Tweets, a countdown on Facebook... Well the song comes out and its mediocre. Anyone who bought the single should have every right to feel duked. It clearly wasn't released in the interest of a good listen but rather for promotional purposes. In interviews she quotes "this", "applause/ARTPOP" is music for the fans. Music that they will love. The star who released Just Dance and Bad Romance knows what a good single sounds like. Applause is simply not up to par and to promote it as such is not much less than fraudulence. She's clearly a very talented person so when I say that I believe she can and should have released something better I don't think it's too critical.

It's slightly offensive to be honest. She's sought with every demographic of the people in the world in a questionable ingenuine attempt to connect with them and create a larger fan base. Shes a marketing genius. That i'll give her. It' a necessary skill for a pop star aiming at the top spot but when she turns to social media to invite her fans to help dummy the charts in promotion of her new single I think she crosses a line. It should be no surprise to Gaga that Applause isn't doing as well as expected. It's not that good of song to the fans standards or what many thought hers might have been. 

 Gaga is who she is and she has every right in the world but if leading turns to misleading it's not acceptable. I urge anyone who relates this to consider buying the album.​ The seemingly incessant need to plug for fans, sales, and ratings is getting old. The singel is an over-pormoted and insufficient pop tease to a now questionable album. I've been a huge fan of much of Lady Gagas work but can't help note it all seems less and less sincere (the Interviews, the promotion, and ultimately the music!)  As a consumer in the spirit of good sincere music I won't be buying her new album (unless swayed by something signigicant) I'd urge the same form anyone who relates anyone who realates to any of this.


i agree

Go Katy!!!

Hi now before I'm hung upside down. I'd like to address the issue is not that GaGa isn't talented she clearly is. 


please stop with the "victim" act, please stop with the "Im an artiste" attitude you have going on these days. Please stop with your twitter rants and asking us to buy multiple copies of the same song for your benefit. I am a college student can barely afford tuition let alone buy multiple copies with receipts just to meet which by the if I had the money I'd totally love to meet you. Please stop with the Madonna, David Bowie, Britney any referenced where people can say " your copying" because I'm sick of having to defend you then end up looking like an obsessed maniac. Please stop making weird songs and get back to making them fun . Please stop being so serious and just dance. Nothing of your sounds scream deep so why not have fun! I want to love you again :( I want to feel like I did when I'd hear Your older songs

I agree 100%!

lady gaga does write her own songs. I own all the cd's and the credits day she either wrote the songs and had co writers, producers, ect or she co wrote it with other artists. thats how it works 99.9% of the time. no one does EVERYTHING because its impossible its to much work for one person to do especially when you have her fame levil. just because you guys don't like her music you assume she is a fraud. She is truly an artist

Lady gaga claimed herself she wrote all her songs.. She didn't! She is a FLOP

LOL Says "Beyonce" who got sued for stealing writing credits.

She doesn't claim to be this amazing artist who writes her own music, create wings that light up as if they didnt exist prior and does all her music. She self promotes herself and falls short every single time. To be frank Beyonce will be around loooong after lady copy and paste

this is bull. there was no pressure to buy multiple songs or to hit replay, the fans decided that themselves because they are dedicated. Yes this song hasn't hit it off the way her past singles have but it is still doing amazing success and the rest of the album will be another one of gagas great works. even if your not a gaga fan you have to admit she is smart, talented and really knows how to mold pop culture and fashion ( think of it she wore pointy nails before anyone else, thorns tooth and it came in style next season, mint and it came in style next season, studs and now grunge is in high fashion, she got bangs and EVERYONE got bangs, she changed what mainstream music was when she released pokerface before that it was more hip hop pop ) she knows that she is doing if you like it or not. listen to her interviews the amount of thought and research that goes into her music and her videos is incredible. I didn't like her that much untill i found out how much of an artist she is. not many celebs write there music, art direct and direct there videos, write there videos, design there clothes and co coreograph there performances. not only that but she stands for something. she is everything 

Gosh you sound really young ..studs has been in for quite sometime. Madonna brought that in first. But Rihanna in her various videos prior to Gaga had studs and spikes so she didnt bring that in. This day in age it's not like the 80-90s where ever girl dressed and acted like Madonna. Gaga is too out there to relate to. I see people dress, hear and more like Britney if anything but I can be wrong. Britney  in my opinion is the Madonna of this  age. Miley from the looks of it will be the following Madonna/Britney

this is bull. there was no pressure to buy multiple songs or to hit replay, the fans decided that themselves because they are dedicated.

gurl you stupid the pony tail thing Madonna did First Lady gagas version was a bootleg reductive version. Pony tails in general Britney did in her first video nice try. She asked her fans to play a playlist of her video to get views. She is only doing ok because of those views not because people are buying her second class "Girl Gone Wild" song.  She is a carbon copy of all the true musical greats before her she hasn't molded anything that's a delusion she's made up in her head and her delusional fans 15 and under. Bangs sweety your dumber than I thought Beyonce had bangs in her last videos. Choreograph? You mean holding eachother by the leg and hop on one foot. Check out Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney and Janet for real choreography!! Lady gaga is a one album wonder her videos are nothing to brag so I wouldn't go there. Everything about her from her clothes to her fake accent is all MADONNA and Madonna does it better

Madonna invented ponytail did she? I am sure she also invented microwave and oxygen. And all three of Gaga's albums, has sold more than 7million copies each. How is that a 'one album wonder'? Madonna's latest album MDNA hasn't even sold 2million copies after 1.5year. Her song flopped so hard they pretended it wasn't a real single and started calling it a 'buzz' single. You Madonna fans needs to stop being so delusional, Madonna is a copycat and had countless lawsuit against her for copyright infringement.

Madonna is Queen of pop like MJ is king. For selling a flop album according to Billboard was the highest earning celeb in 2013 don't hate mama appreciate. Gaga is done

Gaga I think still might have it in her still make an album like Fame Monster. Her popularity no doubt is at a decline not because "the people aren't in tune with art". We live in an age where if your song even remotely sounds like another it will be heard

Gaga really just needs to stop focusing on being famous,fashion, her pretentious ways and get back to making a great pop album. Does she have the staying power as her counter parts. The future doesn't look bright for her. She doesn't understand what an audience demands unlike Britney Spears she knows what her fans/audience love and she delivers same for Rihanna and Katy. Gaga is trying to hard to push an envelope that's already been pushed by prior pop tarts. 

So why not just make a great pop album without the speeches, without the bullshit. That's when I think she'll gain a fan like myself and I think I pretty much speak about a lot of people.

I really hope gaga gets back to where she was :( these past two albums weren't fun 

Lady Gaga- the biggest con artist of the 21st Century..

Is a Hitler analogy too inappropriate? :/

Most of this is petty and ridiculous.  People like what they like, and most people are smart enough to think for themselves and not be bullied into believing something else.  If you don't like Lady Gaga, fine.  Don't attack those that do.  If you do like her, fine.  Stop attacking those that don't.  I'm not sure why this is important enough to constitute name-calling and petty bickering, but she has released one song, and in today's world it seems that if your song is not immediately number one people automatically assume you are a failure and that your career is over.  Being passionate about your opinion is great, but being this pissed off about an artist that doesn't have anything to do with your life is silly.  Like your music, let other people like theirs and get on about your life!  Any of what is true about any of these comments will eventually come out, and if any of it is fraudulent or unseemly, then it will have its own consequences.  

This latest album was not very well thought out. Nothing has matched her first album and with such success often comes complacency. Gaga is a great musician and singer who is in a downward spiral but, it is unfortunate there is so much negativity in the world. Katy's song is your typical pop dribble and that seems to be what people prefer these days. Both have their place in the world. The overall record sales will be the defining mark since that's all the record industry cares about.

I'm surprised Katy Perry was the one to take her out. Britney's last album was great and performed better regards to being radio friendly and fun. Madonna gave a blow with her reductive comment but it was Katy's simple fun song that knocked her from ever reaching that #1. Her fans can say all they want but in the end, she is at a decline. Numbers don't lie. Well in her case she try's so hard to inflate

Lady gaga is no vocalist she is just like Pink, Rihanba and Katy Perry.  She is not now or ever will be a bonifide vocalist like Xtina and Mariah. She is no icon like Michael Jackson Madonna Beyonce heck or even Britney these people are icons! She is a fading fad much like the bump it and skinny jeans she will disappear into oblivion never to be heard from again.. Well be on a future Vh1 special of Remember when or dancing with the stars

I respectfully disagree with you on one name.  P!nk is just as much of a powerhouse as Christina Aguilera, and sometimes even beats Christina on shear talent.  I think Lady Gaga is talented, but I really think she is trying TOO hard to be the best every time.  And we all know when you try too hard to be number one, you fall just short.  She can sing...very well (if you've ever been to one of her concerts).  But there's too much hype surrounding her.

Pink is awesome so is Rihanna these woman have the talent to stick around. Lady gaga not so much. She sold herself in being the next Madonna or Britney but fell flat. I do wish lady gaga would stop being so serious and just dance

Pink is indeed amazing and very underrated. However, Rihanna? No. Do you even know anything about her? She doesn't even write her own songs, Her record label buys them from writers and just get her to record it. How else do you think she can put out an album every year effortlessly? Just last week, the person who wrote the hit song 'Diamond' for her said that she doesn't even know who he is when he walked passed her. She's possibly the least talented artist out there right now.

Gagas little monstards are always picking on other people for liking anyone who is not gaga instead they should be picking this zits all over their faces because last time I checked that's the kind of fans she draws in. Britney doesn't write her own material, frank Sinatra , Janet or Tina Turner and each one is an icon. Do you need to write your own music nope it's how you sing I mean just Look at Britney and Janet they can't sing for shit but I'd pay top dollar to see them just like Rihanna! Diamond, Shut and Drive, Ponde Replay, Umbrella, disturbia, Stay, only girl in the world, S&M,you da One, We Found Love, What's my name, Fly, Man down boo boo the list goes on and on and on with Rihanna.. Gaga you can't say the same. The girl is a #flop

Lady Gaga is an imposter a human tumbler account. All her music, costumes, and Madonna-esque persona come from brilliant artist before her. She doesn't write her own songs ( look at her credits) she only wrote 2.. Yeup just 2 but takes credit for them all. She is a flop con artist who shouldn't be paid for literally copying other people's work!!! Lil monsters can cry all they want that she doesn't copy and writes all her albums the only people they fool are 10-19 year olds.

She has been credited as a writer on every song she has ever released, even producers who has worked with her has confirmed she writes everything herself. Stop acting like you actually looked at the credits. It's seriously sad how some people can hate a person so much that they need to make up lies and defame them like that. She's just a musician, she makes music. Just enjoy it, If you don't like her music then don't buy it or don't listen. She's not forcing you to. And honestly, who's original? Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Jessie J, Rihanna, etc.. had been all accused of copying. And back in the 80s, Madonna was worst than Gaga, everyone was also calling her a copycat.


You said it perfectly

wow what a load of angry people i do agree with some of the comments regarding her fans i am sick of going onto other artists pages ( they are mainly on Madonnas on youtube)  and looking at comments like die and calling her old which is totally out of order and posted by little monsters , im a fan of gaga and when she releases a new album im usually wowed by the first release but have to admit i havent taken to applause but her career  is not in trouble far from it because you must remember how many times did Madonnas career take a nose dive then she returns bigger and better then ever them 2 lady,s are more alike then her monsters would like think i may get some monsters hating me now lol 

I'm so happy for her. She is OVER. Fuck you manufactured product of marketing who has only one "talent" copying other artists.

Wow, so many panties getting into a twist here.  Lady Gaga is gonna be ok, she's a recording artist/saleswoman and only needs to earn back what was paid for by her record company.  In the end, the rich people get richer and we all go back to bitching about something else.

LOL.  No Lady Gaga has been done for some time now.  Born This Way only delivered half the sales of "The Fame Monster".  She's not as big as her little monster fans claimed.  She will be okay, yes, but she will never be as big as she was.  It's OVER.


Lady Gaga is a practical joke created by Universal Records.


I just threw up in my mouth a little the vile responses on here are incredibly disturbing. The fact that this so called journalism comes from people like perez and a gaga hate site is even more ridiculous. 

Gay men really tend to be horrible individuals... you would think they were talking about a murderer. Gaga is one the most humble & nice human beings I've ever met. Her success over the past 5 years won't go away. People want to see her perform and that won't change with made up hateful stories about her. 

Lady Gaga is not humble AT ALL.  There are videos of her prancing around with a giant ego.  She's just fooled you is all.  And it's not just gay men.  Straight people are over her as well.

She is a female of Kanye West. She's addicted to cheap attention. That's why.

Gaga a pop singer and self-proclaimed "musician" making mediocre pop song (now claiming she is an icon, yeah right!) can only hit several notes. I don't know what people are talking about when they go on about her talent. In 5 years all she does if f***g moan on the media about Lupus, bullied at school, insomnia, cocaine addiction, hip surgery, weight issues and so on. What's next? Raped by a Taliban?

Why don't we as a community, support the people in the entertainment industry who DESERVE our support rather than throwing out $ to this overrated and "manufactured musician". I gave her a fair chance in the beginning, but I can't stand liars, phonies and attention whore like Lady Gaga.

The single is #3 in US, and was #1 worldwide. She garnered more music points in total than Katy Perry and beats her as the #1 streaming artist worldwide. For a song with atypical lyrics to be at #1 in US and #1 in 35+ other countries, that's NOT flopping. Please get your sources right.

She is also NOT rush releasing any second single, and Swine is definitely not the second single.

Please check your facts before you type another half-assed article. 

hi! Where is Applause #20 now? Or her 2nd single Venus#129 or Dope #70..where is Roar #6...Lady gaga is finished no one cares for her since the fame days

Please Monster, grow some brains.

Applause went to #1 in 35 countries ONLY on iTunes chart but after 48 hours it then dropped out of the Top 5 in major music markets such US, UK, Germany, France, Australia.

Who are you kidding? Yourself?

I am in complete confusion how so many people are donning ArtPop a failure when they have only heard ONE song, Applause (or two if you've heard the leaked Burka, which isn't my taste at all). Moreover, those who are denying she has talent or isn't a musician, I cannot understand this at all!

For people that actually play an instrument or sing and recognize "musical talent", whether you like Gaga's message, her tactics, marketing, style, or whatever, it is beyond me how anyone could not recognize her musical prowess. Her ability to play and sing an enormous style and genre is credible alone. If you take inventory and look, you'll find elements of classical, historic rock-n-roll riffs, unusual rhythms, complex chord progressions and melodic scales, and a clever and genius layering of vocal, rhythm and cadences. I doubt the majority of people pick up on these techniques. They are incredibly difficult to perform let alone create. She writes and produces ALL of this! There are very few artists that can claim this.

I LOVE BLACK GOSPEL music. I love the style, chords, rhythm, and soulful deep emotions behind it. This is why I LOVED Madonna's Vogue and Like A Prayer, but Madonna did NOT write these songs. I know I will offend here, but Madonna has a marginal voice. She couldn't stand in the presence of the vocal gymnast Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston. Madonna is a PERFORMER and NOT a musician. Take away her "risque" outfits, sexual overtones, hip thrusting, and choreography, and you are left with BORING. The lame accusations of Gaga "stealing" other people's work is preposterous! There are countless songs with the SAME CHORD PROGRESSIONS. You can trace the same pattern in rock-n-roll songs to works of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach. The classic signature riff of the Doobie brothers (chord progression I-IV-I(7)) is laundered throughout all music genre). Just because Gaga's song has the same chord progression as another artist (and I could technically argue that Express Yourself and Born This Way are more different than similar) really exposes the ignorance of those making the claim. Madonna's appeal and talent largely rested with her "shock" value, persona, and her stage presence. Cher is another. Cher, which she admitted about herself, is not that great of a singer. Cher and Madonna are very very similar in how they arrived at fame. Yes, part of Gaga's draw is a reflection of how Madonna and Cher, but Gaga goes a step beyond: she is a TRUE MUSICIAN.  

In contrast and if you truly do this with an unbiased approach, take a listen to Gaga sing Orange Skies, her special with Tony Bennett, her album arrangements then acoustical piano arrangements, her Edge of Glory on Howard Stern, and the list goes on..... If you are honest and have the ability to discern real talent, you'll find Gaga transcends ALL types of music genre. She could easily sing Broadway, Jazz, Gospel, Rock, Pop, and even though I detest it, Rap too. And she WRITES and COMPOSES all of these types of songs. Take a listen to her compositions as "Stephani Germanotta" on YouTube, Whether you like the style or not, this is one TRUE musician.

So hate all you want. Wish her failure. Bash her fans. But those who can dish out true and fair criticism, and not by their personal bias, can reach no other conclusion, she is undeniably a music genius.     

I agree with your assertion that many music artists benefit from qualities other than their vocal talent, so not really knowing Gaga music, I took your advice and listened to her version of Orange Colored Sky on Youtube.  I gave her a B minus.  Unfortunately for her, when singing standards you are up against the all time greats and legends. But I also had to make it a minus because, for those lucky enough to live in California for instance, the weekday acts can often outsing Gaga.  So I have to agree with others who say that much of Gaga's success is from self promotion.  I have no problem with that.  I feel she would be doing better if her fanbase had not alienated so many other fanbases.

well at least you seem objective and i commend you taking the time to listen and comment. where you give a B minus, someone else may give an A or an F; my point was not to claim she is the greatest vocalist, or specifically, the best vocalist for the "standards" but rather her repertoire is broad - showcases her talent's breadth. for me, you cannot top michael buble for standards, at least for this generation, in my opinion. and you may differ here as well.

the comments left for this article are ridiculous and nto backed up by substance. it seems more entangled in juvenile "tug-of-war" btwn madonna or perry. i concede that it takes all colors to make the rainbow. we all have diff tastes and preferences. so what? what i take issue with is the baseless mud slinging. dislike her for arrogance, false pretenses, values, etc... just something of substance, but to start claiming she has no talent, no musical ability, copies other artists, etc... i just have issues with that. 

if you want to get a feel for more of what i am referring to, just take a listen to gaga SOLO on a piano only. listen to how many diff arrangements she does for the same song. or, take a listen to her when she was stephanie germanotta, again playing solo on piano or with her small band. you cannot "synthesize" that sound. it is raw and the music styles are so varied. so many diff sounds and styles, and all written by her. yes, she has collaborators, but she writes the music. most of her collaborators help write the synthesized part, NOT the melody, chord lines, or rhythm. and take note, now with artpop released, she has picked up playing the guitar on stage, not just keyboard. 

like her or not, madonna, perry, cyrus just dont share the same stage with gaga. maybe in "performance" or choreography, but cannot touch her music prowess or composition. but thank you again for at least being objective and not so hateful.  

I actually have no problem with Gaga & my girl, Miley Cyrus actually has admired her.  But her fans have been bugging me on some Miley posts.  Insulting Miley, putting down Miley's accomplishments, and trying to explain why Gaga is a goddess.  NOT that they simply love Gaga, but that Gaga is the total shit, and everyone else is shit.  It's gotten so bad that now I'm waiting for Gaga to go away so I don't have to deal with LM's on the internet anymore.  That's not fair to Gaga, but there it is.

You sound pressed sis.. She doesn't write her own music check the credits..she is no vocalist please listen to Mariah Beyonce and Christina. BTW is a exact copy ofExpress Yourself. She can say she is all about the gays but not too long ago there was a campaign for equality and all social media turn fantastically red with equal signs ever as people's profile pic.. We'd see support fromMadonna and Queen B herself.. Lady gaga was no where in sight ( probably because there wasn't an album to promote) the gays have awaken to this copy cat.. I see it.. We all see it

Lady Gaga will always be remembered as a Madonna Wannabe singer and she needs to be exposed. Why?

She and her Haus of Deception (god knows those clowns running her promo) saw how Katy Perry's "leaked" song was roaring up the charts, within hours her song is mysteriously "leaked" too and now she is upset that people see through her latest marketing ploy? She is so starved for attention and I feel sorry for her. She is making completely fool of her self. Whatever happened to pure talented artists without a "shock" factor? 

I wouldn’t pay a nickel to see her or buy her music.

She is manipulating gay community to sell albums. You're so rich and so spoiled that you believe all the tripe your PR/ press agents spew. You will discover America is a lot more than you think it is. Times are about to change. Okay, so why is the "gay issue" the one Gaga's picked when she's not gay? Why not poverty or inequality in general? Why not talk about racial equality? Why the gay issue?

Back in late December 2009, the L.A. Times did some digging around into the obscene amount of product placement featured in Lady GaGa’s music videos like “Bad Romance” and “Telephone”, and discovered that GaGa had either taken money from, or freely featured products from companies with anti-LGBT ties.

Miracle Whip is owned by Kraft Foods, which donates almost exclusively to Republican candidates –including several who have gotten scores of 0 by Equality California, an organization whose mission it is “to ensure and promote dignity, safety and equality for all of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Californians.”

Hewlett-Packard’s donation record is also mixed in this respect, contributing to some candidates with solid voting records in favor of LBGT issues, and some against.

But Chevrolet’s parent company contributed primarily to social conservatives, including House Whip Eric Cantor, who voted yes on a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman, and voted no on enforcing specific punishments for anti-gay hate crimes.

Does she just pick and choose where the money comes from based on whatever best fits her image​? Lady Gaga needs to disappear for good. I'm so over this pathetic woman !

This is the stupidest argument I've ever heard. I am gay and I use Miracle Whip AND have an HP laptop. Does this mean I'm "exploiting the gay community?" Ridiculous.

Additionally, the leak and subsequent rush-release of her song actually hurt her single's sales. Clearly Gaga and her team would not intentionally do this as a marketing move.  It's fine if you think Gaga is too similar to Madonna, but you're just making stuff up and jumping to conclusions. 

Gaga is a marketing whore looking for a cheap publicity to sell garbage, just like her fashion and art.

Didn't Gaga know about it? Is she really THAT stupid? For someone who is SO involved with the gay cause… I can conlude she surely is misinformed.

I remember the Target scandal during Born This Way era where Gaga had dissolved her partnership with Target over disagreements about their policy on giving political donations. Breaking the contract when her song still is #1 ? Great timing, my friend and it was just a great way to keep her name on the headlines so she could claim herself as the "savior of the gays" as if she "standing up for her gays"

Stupidest argument ever? Maybe. Maybe no. If it wasn't true why didn't she sue L.A Times? Obviously she knows more than you shallow asshat Monsters pretending to.

It just means that she should have chosen her sponsors more coherently with her supposed morals and the cause she was allegedly fighting for. The fact that her sponsors were giving money to anti gay politicians, weakens and even nullifies her message and brings up serious questions about the honesty of her "manifesto". You can use whatever brand you want, it is your call, you have to answer to your own conscience. But if you were to become a public figure with so much influence you would have to think things more carefully, she clearly did not.

........meaning she is just a record company's puppet who is being scripted how to behave, speak, sing and Tweet all in the name of ratings, sponsorship, endorsement and marketing obviously. She knows nothing about GLBT because everything is pre-planned for her right from the beginning.

Gaga is a not an angel but more of a decaying precum just like her songs, fashion and art. Last but not least, she bought her followers on Twitter. 71% are spammers. Sad isn't it?

Accurate post.. I detect no lies

Lady MEHga....

This post is not true  mr jonathan hahahaa    or miss jonathan  hahahaaaa  

Long post and I should have proof read. The first paragraph should have said "pit ONE against the other" as opposed to "on". The last paragraph should read "20 years" instead of 2 and "how much the public see's" (appostrophe "s", as in see is) in the event you indulged me and read the entire post. Sorry.

I typically refrain from getting into this banter, but had to jump in on this fiasco! Gaga "haters" need a mic check. The characterizations are ridiculous, but this is the same pattern, a blueprint, of the music industry and emerging artists. I am old enough to remember the inception of Madonna, and anyone who can relate or those that want to really investigate, look back at the comparison of Madonna to Cher. The majority tagged Madonna as a copy and fad, forecasting her to flop early on. Now look. Fans love to do this: pit on against the other. And we (the fans) are bright enough to know this industry is dripping with jealousy, envy, and secret hope for their competition to fail. 

I am definitely on the outer fringe of the bell curve of Gaga's fan base. In fact, I won't even claim to be a Little Monster, but I am a fan. First, she is a creative genius. She writes ALL her songs. There are FEW musicians that can claim this feat. Phil Collins, Elton John, Mariah Carey, Queen, Kiss, Dolly Parton, Buddy Holly are just a few. But, to write your own music AND have them top of the charts, is an even greater dimension of true musical talent. I play piano and can recognize how truly talented Gaga is. The music, chord progression, vocal arrangements, etc... whether you like her or not, she is a musical genius and one of the best in this century. 

I don't really hold her responsible for her fan base's actions, but I do agree, I don' t think she has done enough to temper their fury. I too find it reprehensible that her "anti-bully" and "anti-gay" campaign is the foundation of her empire, but her fan base launches some of the vilest examples of what she advertises and claims to be vehemently against. She has no more control over people's actions (her fan base) but I do believe she should denounce what they are doing and take responsibility if she really wants to have credibility.     

I have seen her 3 times and I can attest, her fan base is NOT crazy, at least what I have witnessed at the concert. Her messages are consistent. I DO think she is sincere in what she preaches. I know people can fool you and I like many, find a genuine thread in Gaga. She always reminds the audience of where she came from, how thankful she is, what struggles she shares with so many, and has never been boastful or arrogant. I worry if success will weed out these traits, probably the second most attractive thing about her (the first, her music prowess and true performer's talent). 

To compare an artist like Madonna to Gaga is very premature. Just wait another 2 years and then stack up Gaga's career against Madonna. I may be very wrong, but I would make a sizable wager that Lady Gaga will dethrone Madonna. Gaga is a true musician and this "character" is all part of her genius. She has created a mystifying persona, one that we all can't wait to find out "what is next". Don't get so caught up in the "reality" and take things so literal. Her whole image and creation is all part of the genius. I love "Gaga" and have no idea how much of this character the public sees representative of what she is truly like in her day to day affairs. Every one of us understand this. We ALL do this. We are different at school, at work, at home with our family, friends, lovers, etc.... Gaga is no different and 'we" the fans aren't either. 

Lady gaga is spiraling downward from her music to the publics demand for it. I bought Born this way thinking it was going to be a great album all it's doing now is collecting dust. Tried to take it to Zia to sell it they won't take it because they already have like a zillion copies for 2.99! To my disappointment I ended buying Britney's Blackout and as much of a train wreck she is the album is Nirvana to me anywho there is my two cents which is the amount I'd pay for another lady ga ga album

Lady Gaga never denounced or stepped in when it was brought to her attention that her little monster fans were out of control.  Her response was, "They're just protective of me."  She needs to step down off her pedestal. Her message has become null and void after the way her followers have behaved.  Granted the majority of them are 12 and have been given a computer, so what else do you expect.


Yes we're "jalouz" and yes "cuz" she has the best "weave". You either must be brain dead, haven't graduated grade school or had no schooling. Lady Gaga is done with washed up spit out. Her music is mediocre and he schtick is old


Right, but Gaga didn't act like a victim and post this for the world to read like a psycho on Twitter.  No class.  She's through and over,  She's a joke. A fan base of a bunch of little morons aka children with no lives.   ,  

like always she gets her fans to do the the hate to other artist. The Monsters are nothing but hateful people that try to damage other artist careers... when GAGA got fat she went after Adele.... thats why I hate her fans.

Gaga was not wrong in questioning why she was held in a different standard compared to Adele. I applaud Gaga for saying what was on many people's mind.

Some of you yourself are verging on billing. I am a gaga fan and some of the things you're posting is obscured. Not for you to take offence but do your research before making remarks like these. In regards to the tweets between gaga and Perez. That's for them so sort out, read the tweets. As for some monsters they are like any other fans ie Britney Spears has Chris Crocker or stalker. All celebrities have crazed fan don't rush to a conclusion that were all bad. 

"For them to sort out."  Right which is why that psycho attention-whoring Madonna-wannabe should never have tweeted those crazy things about Perez in the first place.  She's turned me off of her with this desperado crazy behavior.  There is no humility with her like before.

Wait a minute. Are you defending that talentless, fugly-faced, good-for-nothing vermin known as Perez Hilton? The one who likes to OUT people before they are even ready. The same Perez Hilton who likes to IMPOSE his standards on everyone else? Seriously, if you need to pick sides, Perez Hilton is NOT the side you want to pick on. No Integrity, No credibility and a nobody.

Lady gaga had the worst fans, they are such bullies. What happen to all her anti bulling?? She's falling quick!! Her fans represent here.. And they are so mean!! HUGE BULLIES!! 

Very true.  She does have the absolute worst fans in the world and what's sad about that is they have ironically contributed to her downfall.  Everyone just became turned off by them and by her for doing nothing about it.   As far as her music.  It's fun, dance, but the last album "Born this way" only had 3 great songs on it, the rest of it was noise.  This "Applause" is more of that noise.  

Gaga fans are bullies??? Only SOME of them are, as they are humans after all, and they get insulted when people are insulting Gaga. Have you even read HALF the shit Madonna fans say and Britney fans say? They're worse. Gaga fans are the most open-minded fanbase out there right now.

And did you know it's been exposed that haters have been POSING as Gaga fans on twitter, sending hate, just to make us look bad? 

Don't drag Britney into your rant please. Britney has NEVER said anything bad about any artist. Madonna can because her work was stolen and repackaged so she can say what she wants to lady gaga. Lady gaga is vile I went to show once and she said quote " I will never pay top dollar to see some blonde bitch lip sync" only two artist that do is Britney and Madonna. She is so insecure and pressed on being the next Britney or Madonna but judging by her last album and current single she isn't even close! So Hun dont drag Britney she is truly humble and sweet.. But your a " Lil monster" what else can we expect.. Right

Anti-bullying doesn't mean having to take crap from anyone lying down, child.

If Lady Gaga is really a hateful person, then why is it that so many celebrities want to work with her? She will always remain strong simply because she is talented. She has the goods and skills to back up her claim. I do not think Lady Gaga has the worst fans. That title belongs to Bieber's fans.

I totally agree with u well said.

I'm a big Gaga fan and I'm not a bully... :(

Well you're one of the few :) Her fans are crazy.  LOL read the comments from her fan "Germanotta" on these postings.  He/she sounds borderline obsessive.  Sad, weird, little Morons.  Their mother moron is flopping and there is nothin they can do. :(  

You sound more than a little crazed yourself.

Perfectly agree with you. 

It's funny that these people are talking bad about Gaga fans, yet they're doing it in a way that it's insulting too. Hypocrites.

GaGa is fake, she's horrible, her album is gonna flop. I'm glad Britney Spears, the most humble popstar is coming with her new album with delicious pop songs and collab with Sia :)

<3 Miss Britney Spears and wanting a new Rihanna album

Britney will save pop music again

Hello, Britney!

Only a Britney stan...

Why are Gaga fans so quick to make homopgobic remarks? This is something i am seeing alot of lately , it is disturbing.

I am sorry that was a typo i meant it to say, Why is there so much homophobia coming from GaGa fans? And I am not just saying here. The other day a GaGa fan told PerezHilton, "Drink bleach and die fa*g*t".What bothers me most about it is she has actually been encouraging this behavior, i thought she was anti-bully anti-homophobic

I agree, Gaga's killing her own career by acting like this.  Why is Katy Perry doing so well?  Katy seems like a nice person, is grateful and polite to the TRUE queen of pop Madonna, and Katy genuinely comes off as grateful and humble as does Rihanna.  Gaga needs to learn a thing or two stat because her pop days are numbered.  She hasn't even had a lot of hits under her belt and allows herself to be called "queen of pop" lololol. She's falling fast, and not just off the charts.  Karma I guess.  

Bitch please you don't know shit abou her. After SOME of her fans were threatening others, she POSTED IMMEDIATELY on her social media sites that she would like for them to STOP and that they're not true fans if they keep the negativity. She has been fighting for a positive world from the start and has affected millions. Me being one of them.

Gaga never ever said she was the queen of pop. Don't make up shit. She even commented once saying "I don't want to be your queen, I want to be your friend. I only want to make music to make people happy". So spiteful bitches like you sitting at home trashing her need to learn a thing or two. Gaga is very humble. She still lives in her APARTMENT in New York with her parents. She don't own a million dollar mansion. You really need to learn more before you post things like this. It's upsetting. I'm a close fan of hers and I'm a liable witness to her tale. Trust me.

I totally agree with you as well I think her "fame" has gotten to her head and like u said its hurting her. She speaks about anti bulling and she just lets her brainwashed fans do it for her when she doesn't try to stop it. Even When Perez Hilton was her friend... he is now telling the truth....pretty much that her and her label were paid to talk negatively about Bionic...thats why now he is promoting people to buy Xtina's Album on the same day as Gaga's album comes out......and she is crying Foul.

Ugh stupid bitch stfu. Katy is FRIENDS WITH GAGA, We are LITTLE MONSTERS not you. We know more about gaga than you. So shut the fuck up and get your facts right. Madonna is queen of pop, Gaga is the goddes of pop. Byebye.

Completely agree.

I'm sorry but this is a rediculous comment. Okay so there are some 'monsters' out there that are taking things to far but don't let that for a second reflect upon Gaga herself. To say that she is endorsing homophobic and threatening behaviour is just absurd. She is one of the greatest advocates for homosexual rights in the world. And as for the comments towards Perez Hilton, Gaga has tweeted fairly often insisting that fans stop the negative comments, and to leave him along. This goes along with the fact if you look at Perez Hilton's website and search Lady Gaga I don't think there has been one nice post about her. I am not sure where you stand as far as a fan, but to judge someone based on other peoples behaviour is wrong. How exactly is Gaga acting to kill her own career?
