An almost 2 hour interview with Gaga on Howard Stern. Listening to it now...
^ thanks for the link!
No problem. So far I am really liking the interview.
For anyone who dislikes Gaga I highly recommend you listen to her interviews, she's really likable.
Yeah, what I really like about it all is that it just sounds like she is having a conversation and not that much of an interview. And the fact that all the stuff about Madonna and Perez is that she doesn't care and it is all stupid. She doesn't feed into it at all.
After listening to that interview I like Gypsy even more.
And they brought up making an acoustic album. I would die.
Will Interscope lose $25 million promotional bet on Lady Gaga 'ARTPOP' bomb?
On Saturday, it was revealed that Interscope, Lady Gaga's label, has spent $25 million dollars to promote her flop album "ARTPOP," which is set to sell around 250 thousand copies in its first week -- that's a 75 percent drop from the first week album sales of "Born This Way" only two years ago. This weekend, plenty of Lady Gaga's little monsters prostituted themselvesonline, offering gay sex for people who buy at least 30 copies of "ARTPOP."
Some have compared the fate of "ARTPOP" to Michael Jackson's "Invincible," where $30 million was spent on the promotion for an album that didn't even launch one solid hit single. But "ARTPOP" is really Lady Gaga's "Glitter."
So, how was the money spent? We talked to a music industry analyst (who wants to be referred to as 'Jacob' for this story), who has worked at both Warner Brothers and Arista over the past twenty years. He works closely with people from Interscope and told us that the past year has been a huge nightmare for Lady Gaga and Interscope.
Lady Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP’ Flop Down 75% From ‘Born This Way’ First Week Sales (Updated)
The underwhelming album sales won’t touch her previous effort’s 1.1 million — Amazon promo or not
Lady Gaga’s new album “ARTPOP” has had plenty of promotion behind it, but sales are expected to fall well short of her previous offering, “Born This Way.”
First-week sales of roughly 260,000 copies are projected for the pop diva’s new release, according to Billboard. That would be a more-than 75 percent drop-off from her prior album, which bowed with 1.1 million units moved.
That impressive prior number was undoubtedly bolstered by an Amazon.com promotion that sold “Born This Way” for 99 cents during two days of its initial week. Billboard estimates that the MP3 marketing play accounted for 440,000 of the platinum-plus open. So crunching numbers, that means “ARTPOP” is still only paced to sell 40 percent of the Week 1 copies that “Born This Way” did at full cost.
Always trolling, stay pressed.
Always delusional, stay vapid.
The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 65,608 copies, making Lady Gaga the third female solo artist in chart history to top the chart with each of her first three studio albums, following Avril Lavigne and Susan Boyle.
I can never be arsed with the fanboy/fangirl arguing over which one of their icons sold most records or made it to the top of the charts in x amount of days/hours - as if that's an accurate indication of the overall quality of the music.
If you're in it for sales and numbers then I'd say you're into music for the wrong reasons...
And I would just say just because the album didn't sell that well in the first week, doesn't mean it won't pick up some sales later anyway.
It's called trolling guys, no biggie.
Late to the Artpop party but I am recently starting to feel "Applause". Other songs will have to grow.
Lady Gaga Lashes Out At 'Overflow Of Hate' On Social Media
Lady Gaga just scored her second No. 1 album, "ARTPOP," which debuted atop this week's Billboard 200 chart. However, the pop superstar has taken to social media to express disappointment toward those who have met her latest achievements with an "overflow of hate."
"I put so much love into my music, into my shows, I make it all for you. I'll never understand the overflow of hate sent my way," Gaga posted on her Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 20), hours after "ARTPOP" was crowned the No. 1 album in the country. "Or maybe thats what entertainment is now. It's more fun to point & laugh than appreciate the artist. I'll keep rehearsing my steps #showbiz

Also do they know what lashing out means?
Being called vapid by a miserable troll, now that's funny.
Keep stanning. ^__^b

I really do love Gaga but I agree that everything surrounding this album has been a bit of a disjointed mess. I'll admit that I don't really understand this one like I did her previous stuff.
It's still growing on me though. I'm blasting it right now along with a bottle of wine.
Let the haters be haters. Sales (of which this album was #1 on the chart) doesn't mean everything. #golfclap
Am I looking at the wrong iTunes charts? Because I don't see her anywhere on the album charts.
I like ARTPOP more than Born This Way. I finally downloaded the rest of Born This Way because there was a discount, maybe due to ARTPOP being released.
I love Lady Gaga and she's super inspirational for me. I love Aura, Venus, G.U.Y, Sexxx Dreams, Mary Jane Holland, and Applause the most. I haven't listened to the actual title track yet.
The thing I like most about this album, besides the music, is the Jeff Koons collaboration. It really makes the art geek in me smile.
^Is the sound wacky or is it just me?
Yeah, low quality clip, gaga tweeted it.
Has anyone downloaded the Artpop app? I did, it looked really cool with the intro, but it's pretty complicated to do stuff.
I don't get what the big deal is with people getting so emotional about her and her supposed flop album. I bought Artpop, it's a great pop dance album, way and I mean, WAY better than Born This Way or any other current pop mainstream album.I like the songs, I enjoy great music and from what I've seen, the album went to number 1 in both US and the UK,right? Hardly a flop.
As forecast last week, Lady Gaga debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with her new set, "ARTPOP." It sold 258,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The arrival of "ARTPOP" is the third-largest sales week for a woman in 2013. It follows Katy Perry's "PRISM" (286,000 in its No. 1 debut) and Miley Cyrus' "Bangerz" (270,000 in its No. 1 bow).

So, going to bring it back a bit. Curious as to what song got you into Gaga? The song that got me into wasn't even a single, I heard a random snippet from some reward show on a game site. It was "Monster" and it is still my favorite song of hers.
I heard Paper Gangsta and I had to find out who sang it. That's still one of my favorite songs of hers.

I used to love lady gaga, but sadly I think she is done. I listened to her new album for about 2 days and then I was bored with it, yet I loved fame monster.
I wasn't the biggest fan of her first album, but I loved everything on The Fame Monster. I personally don't think she's ever been as good since then, but I still like her enough.
I loved Just Dance, Poker Face, and Paparazzi. I thought it was dancy at a time when songs really didn't seem to be. At the time that I heard Gaga, I was more into indie music and 80's synthpop bands like Erasue and Pet Shop Boys, but had loved pop in my high school years. Gaga made me like pop again.
I saw her in 2009 and minus some BS that kept me and my ex (then bf) waiting for a long time, really enjoyed the concert. I wasn't a huge fan of Born This Way, but I really love ARTPOP!
