Don't look now, but Gaga's comeback is flopping

It's sad.

I've only heard thirty seconds of the whole song anywhere. Radio seems to not be playing it.

And Gaga is asking her fans to buy multiple copies. Girl, what is someone going to do with multiple copies of a song? Give them away? In digital format?

So embarrassing but she did this all to herself by giving up a good thing -- her original, fun dance vibe. She must be on coke or something because she got too weird, too fast.

Don't look now, but the anti-Gaga troll is starting multiple threads. Give it a rest, Madge.

by Anonymousreply 108/17/2013

She didn't "ask fans to buy multiple copies", OP.

She merely said that every proof of purchase provides one entry into a draw to win concert tickets.

If people choose to purchase multiple copies in order to receive multiple entries into the draw, well, there's nothing she can do about that, now is there?

I know, like how dare she try something new that challenges her as an artist. Every record she makes should be EXACTLY the same as the last, just like Britney and Katy Perry and Madonna post-2008.

by Anonymousreply 308/18/2013

I think Gaga should have waited to go public and just gone into the studio to prepare something really amazing. I think she is an enormously talented entertainer and walking around like a very eccentric normal person is stupid. Plus the other day, they showed a photo of her going out with some guy, and she was bare assed. Literally bare assed. Her ass was hanging out. She had no drawers on. She looked silly. The shock value is gone.

Just because the first single isn't great, that doesn't mean the whole album will suck. I'm sure she has a good single coming up.

If the music video is good (Coreography, Imagery, Fashion) followed by a flawless VMA performance at the end of next week. Then Gaga could officially have a comeback. Music Videos and Live perfomance have saved alot of careers from time to time. However, the song is a little David Bowie Redux. Plus the sound of the song really isn't appealing to all taste. Goth, New Wave, EDM, & Pop all rolled into one. I'm still a GAGA fan though she is a crazy talented bitch! But right now I have to admit she's sinking a bit.

Maybe she should stick to her classic Pop style and maybe add some R&B to her element?!

The reason radio stations haven't be playing it is because her radio deal does not start until August 19, which was the original release date. There are some radio stations who have added the song and are playing it, but most haven't. Expect to hear it more after she drops the video Monday and performs at the VMAs.

by Anonymousreply 3608/18/2013

You're wrong R36. Her radio deal already happened last Monday when Applause was played on top of each hour. You're referring to the official add date. Most big stations that contribute massively to the charts have already added it. There won't be any more radio deals. Face it, Applause has flopped. Katy Perry, with no promo whatsoever, has trashed Gaga to the ground. The music video may bring back so,e hype but then so will Katy's. Katy Perry, most unfortunately, is the public's chosen Queen of Pop. They like silly boring stuff with nothing exciting sprinkled on top of pop songs.

[R38] Yas! And Gaga will have to do the same now next week. I remember when Madonna's "Hung Up" first came out on the radio and fans didn't fall in love with it quickly. That was until Madonna dropped the video following that EMA performance the following week. She received good press which equaled good buzz. That is what saved "Hung Up". Like I said, I hope Gaga's visuals and coreography for "Applause" are good enough to save the song's current slack.

Madonna has always been successful because she had mass appeal. Not just a niche market.

Lady Gaga is only appropriate in tired gay clubs with twinks who move from one fad to the next.

Let's face it, outside of a small gay audience, nobody really cares or listens to Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga is just a temporary fix. Just like everything else 21 year old gays are in to at the moment.

"It’s about being a fearless female and not caring what people say about you – being proud of who you are and walking the walk no matter what."

I guarantee you, NOBODY thinks this way about Donatella. Hell, NOBODY thinks about Donatella, period, other than to comment on how grotesque she looks when we're forced to see her. The public will not relate to this song at all. Hell, Oprah would have been a better subject.

Dear Gaga's knowledge of "Shakespearean times" is very limited. "High-class" people weren't the only ones let in for performances. And "let in" is a silly concept for an outdoor theater such as the Globe, which held up to 3,000 people. Class had nothing to do with anything - as today, you got the spot you paid for. And while the groundlings standing paid the least, they also were close to the action on stage. Standing actually was the convention. There wasn't a square, Gaga.

Second, she's basically being an elitist and saying only high-class people should see her shows because lower class people aren't grateful and don't treat it with respect?

Just who the fuck does Gaga think her audience is? It's certainly not the elite.

Gaga is nothing more than a Guido trying to pretend that she is sophisticated and cultured. That bitch looks like a rejeceted cast member of Jersey Shore.

Stumbled upon the "Applause" video today on YouTube. I'll give her this, it's kind of cool that she's not afraid to appear unattractive.

The song has absolutely no appeal whatsoever. "Bad Romance", while nothing special, at least had a melody to it. The lyrics to "Applause" aren't even lyrical. They sound ham-fisted, awkward, and pretentious. There are a few moments in the song where it resembles Ellie Goulding's wonderful "Lights" -- but those moments are fleeting, almost as if the songwriter/producers thought, "Hmm, should we? No, remember the 'Born This Way' fallout... Better not."

Lady Gaga really thinks a lot of herself, doesn't she? If something is truly art, it doesn't need to scream about how artful it is. The album is actually called 'ARTPOP'? Ker-snort.

The overall impression I'm getting about her is that she's not very bright, is truly delusional about her abilities and the significance of her output, and currently has some kind of drug-induced brain fatigue that has rendered her less capable than ever of putting out a worthwhile product.

Her fans, like the imbecilic, insufferable R70, seem to think music is all a numbers competition. Jesus god almighty. You people know NOTHING about music.

lol there's talk that Applause is a ripoff of Madonna's Girl Gone Wild. Here's a mashup:

Is Gaga for real with this coke? I mean, quote?:

"To make ARTPOP there must be an exchange between two auras: one from the sphere of ART, and the other from the sphere of POP. This exchange must be of talent, not material or selfish, a moment of ‘giving’ between 2 forces who’ve agreed to put ART in the front."

Gaga tweeted that a couple of nights ago. Jeez, she really is up her own but isn't she? She really thinks she is an artiste and not a pop tart.

R152 nails it - and that's the difference between her and Madge right there. Whatever you think of Madonna - she knows the business and her role in it better than Gaga

Congrats, Gaga troll at R157 (and elsewhere), you have officially brought me to loath Gaga. And I liked her, I really did!

I suspect this is why her album sales have dropped so precipitously since the first - her little "monsters" (the ones that she has actively cultivated)) come across as irritating little shits that really only serve to drive people away from the lead attraction.

So please go watch Applause on YouTube 100 more times before you go to bed, k?

I like her new song "Swine." I think it's about Perez Hilton!

OK I just watched 'Applause' and 'Roar' on Vevo back to back. I'm neither a fab of, nor dislike, either of them, so here goes:

'Applause' may not be the greatest song ever but it's miles better than 'Roar.'

The 'Applause' video is great, held my attention but couldn't she have saved a couple of those ideas for another song?

When she writhed on the floor, Gaga appeared to have a strap-on.

In a 30 minute drive that Applause song was played at least 4 times (on different stations). I think it's starting to have some positive movement so I don't see it flopping.

"Applause" was not fun enough. Awkward song structure, a chilly not-fun minor key sound, and stupid narcissistic lyrics.

She has shown a past capability to create and put out much better pop music than that. We'll see if any of the rest of her new stuff is on par with Bad Romance or Telephone. Now those are examples of future-classic pop perfection, similar to how "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" is and will always be regarded as an 80s classic. But, years from now, next to no one will be playing Applause for any reason.

Question regarding Gaga's new release. They're projecting that she'll still hit #1 with about 250000 copies sold.

She apparently released her album on Monday which goes against what every other artist does (most release on Tuesday).

I'm just curious how this impacts sales. Does the extra day give her an advantage or do they somehow factor the extra day out of the sales charts?

I'd imagine it has to do with wanting momentum from her hosting SNL this weekend, but while she really was terrific in the skits, the new music was kinda boring. And I'm a Lady Gaga fan.

by Anonymousreply 18411/18/2013

I'm not a gaga fan, but I also don't understand the amount of backlash. Unlike most current pop stars at least she's somewhat experimental and surprising. It seems like people who do standard boring shit get a free pass.

[quote]It seems pretty unanimous that Artpop didn't measure up critically or CDs sold.

No, it doesn't.

R184

I believe her CD was released last Monday, so prior to her SNL hosting gig.

Im still curious if this gives her an extra day's advantage towards the Billboard chart. She'd probably be number 1 anyway, I'm just wondering if that number would be inflated because of the extra day.

Hey GaGaStan, Let's call it quits on this thread. No one is getting anywhere and I think we've flung enough shit at each other to keep us purring at least until the next...umm..week, I mean century.

You love yours. I love mine. And never the twain shall meet. If we can agree on that, we can move on with life.

xxxooo, MADBOT
