Katy Perry Fingers August 9th For New Single / Eyes GaGa Fuelled Chart Battle

Published: Wednesday 31st Jul 2013 by David

Competition this way comes.

As the Monsters prepare to get its hands on Lady GaGa‘s brand new single ‘Applause’, today saw the song find fresh competition in Katy Perry, and the first single to be pulled from her new album ‘Prism’.

Why, you ask?

Details below…

Exactly ten days before GaGa drops ‘Applause’, Perry will release her new single ‘Roar’ to the world via radio, and to iTunes no more than a week later.

Throwing both cuts into the ring and forcing them to compete, their similar release windows will come before the October 22nd release of the aforementioned ‘Prism’, giving Katy less time than GaGa has given herself to push her single and album.

For, with ‘ARTPOP’ dropping on November 19th, the Italian American Pop Princess set aside three months between the launch of the single and album to promote, one more than Perry has enlisted to ensure her releases truly pop!



Who do you think will come out on top?

Weigh in below…

    Hunty i am looking forward to Katy single, and not a that hot mess gaga child!!

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

      Of course, GaGa is not the one who makes children’s music!

  3. SME July 31, 2013

    That title though…

    • FAF July 31, 2013

      I know.. Applause & Roar that sounds so similar, IMO…

      • SME July 31, 2013

        No…. “Katy Perry Fingers ” could have picked a better word..

  4. S****** Blonde July 31, 2013

    She’s not afraid, you see, this is what i call be bold, i think Gaga will have that #1 since she would use the Youtube views, predictable as usual.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 31, 2013

      In your constant and desperate attempt at shading Gaga, are u really going to tell us Katy Perry is better?????? Really? At least talk s*** about Gaga when you want to make clear Madonna is your girl, but all the time? When comparing her to lessers???

      • S****** Blonde July 31, 2013

        Did i f****** say she’s better?, no, does she making tricks to have a number 1 song with just 5 years in the game, yes, calm down, nobody is pressed about your Goddess, I’m NOT a b****, I just have a low b******* tolerance.

      OMG OMG OMG Have you heard the details on Britney’s new album? I feel this is her Ray of Light moment (I abuse that term, I know).

      “The “Criminal” singer has teased fans that her new album will ditch the sugary Pop sounds of yesterday and go for a more urban feel, a la Blackout 2.0.

      Spears has enlisted top-notch producers such as William Orbit (Madonna, Ray of Light), Darkchild, Pharrell Williams and now, Naughty Boy. During his latest interview with Entertainment Wise the producer revealed that he wants to keep Britney in the Pop genre, but create still a fresh sound.

      “I’m a big fan of Pop music and that culture, so I definitely want to keep that going but in my own kind of way and my own kind of style.”, Naughty Boy exclaimed. “I’m not trying to make any kind of record you would have heard before. As a producer you want to be able to do that,keep it original.”

      Naughty Boy also nixed the idea of creating anything similar to her last album, Femme Fatale. “I wouldn’t do anything that dub-steppy [but] I wanted to keep it Pop.

      I am freaking the f*** out.

  5. Mark111 July 31, 2013

    And we’re off! Katy Vs Lady, monsters vs Kats. Who will win?

    • ATM JAM July 31, 2013

      shut the f*** up.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

      GaGa + Monsters.

  6. JOHNVIDAL July 31, 2013

    Damn Lady Gaga>>>>>>>>>>>Katy Perry in every possible way! It even seems strange how close the projects will be released. I think Katy´s team has rushed the single´s release. No matter if Katy´s song is cute or whatever, Gaga will serve and prove she is a real big artist and star beating Katy with the performances, the art, the personal input, the videos, etc.

    • Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 31, 2013

      “the art, the personal input, the videos, etc.” This just made me laugh!!!

    • miao July 31, 2013

      Hell yeah!

  7. Mischa July 31, 2013

    Gaga will obviously slay her.

  8. RICHIE_RICH July 31, 2013

    Who cares?????????

    • Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 31, 2013

      Made cause they’re releasing music in well executed plans while Bleach serves up snippets?

      • RICHIE_RICH July 31, 2013

        Why would anyone be mad over Katy Perry?

        Beyonce is on tour slaying all the girl so once again who cares…………

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

        ^^ Klokk

    • Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) July 31, 2013

      I’m looking for Beyonce’s single, is it Bow Down, I been on, Grown Woman or Standing on the sun???Or maybe Rise Up….which one is it???? Are all those buzz singles?? Hmmm

      Also, Rihanna made Wale – Bad a top 25 hit, Turn Up by Dream ft Beyonce didn’t even chart, sign of the times??

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

        You’re so easy SMH, anyone can make you write novels with just 2 words 🙄

        At this point, you’re not better than Sybil at all!

  9. B****** ARE A MESS July 31, 2013

    I don’t know though…Gaga is kind of played out! Does she really still have fans??

  10. Beyawnce July 31, 2013

    Katy single probably will chart higher than gaga but gaga will beat her in first week album sales

  11. Head C*** IN Charge July 31, 2013

    I can honestly see GaGa coming out on top but I don’t think she’s going to SLAY Katy Perry. Ummmm, did yall see how Katy’s last albums & singles performed. don’t count her completely out.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

      LMAO you’re talking as if her album brought “21” numbers …

  12. Beyawnce July 31, 2013

    Gaga’s single and music video will both debut on the same day , looks like someone really wants a #1 😉

  13. Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 31, 2013

    With Gaga using streaming she will have a chance but we all know Katy is the Queen of the Charts. E.T, Katy’s fourth single managed to do well against Born This Way, Gaga’s lead single. Plus ET held the record for most spins in a single week and that record was smashed by Last Friday Night. I’m glad they’re releasing at the same time, the charts have been rather boring without them.

  14. Mark111 July 31, 2013

    Why are we acting like Teenage Dream not only out sold BTW, but out lasted it and had bigger singles?

  15. mr.m July 31, 2013

    They’re both gimmick h***! #deal
    I don’t like them ..
    BUT Katy Floprry will slay Mr. FlopGa

  16. Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 31, 2013

    BTW Its not certain if the single is called Rawr or Roar.

  17. Perry Power July 31, 2013

    Lol Lady Gaga is a force in music but when it comes to the charts she is no match for Katy. Last Friday Night outperformed Edge of Glory and Judas despite being Katy’s fifth single and receiving zero promotion. E.T was just as successful as Gaga’s 1st single too. The only way Gaga would beat her is with the new streaming rules. If Katy releases the video the day of the single then Gaga has no chance.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

      you Speak About Singles, But you forgot Gaga is more Anticipated!

      Everyone Is waiting for her Single, fans and haters Alike.

      • Perry Power July 31, 2013

        People are interested but that doesn’t mean they will buy it. She had more hype and promo for Born This Way and it didn’t touch California Gurls in sales, barely even surpassed E.T.

  18. JER July 31, 2013

    Shes making a mistake. She wont sethrone ‘Blurred Lines’ it will still be huge then. Gaga barely has a shot at #1. I forsee her leas single and her era the way of Ke$ha. OOP

  19. Rosie July 31, 2013

    I would rather have her beat Gaga but I won’t use her or her new single if it’s 2010 Dr. Luke/Bonnie McKee trash.

  20. Molly July 31, 2013

    Katy > Caca

  21. PRINCE MACHIAVEL July 31, 2013

    Lllol Katy’s And Rihanna’s Stans Are So F****** Pathetic And Loser They Even Forget That Gaga 4 Years In The Industry Slay Goat And Tittie 7 Years In Industry, Lady G Won, Celebrity, Has The Biggest Sell Tour And S*** On Them In Forb So C**** Suck It!!!!!!

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

      B**** STFU please, Won What ? Last.Fm most deleted artist ?

      Get. Real.

      She’s Still Getting her s*** together, RIHANNA is the closest one to madonna’s Throne and Everyone is sad about it.

      She is As Relevant As Ke$ha in the Music Scene right Now. 😛

    • Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 31, 2013

      And none of that has to do with the fact that Katy has a better chart record and when she did face Gaga on the charts she won. Sit the f*** down.

    • ^AKA^ July 31, 2013

      This b**** is always mentioning Rihanna. Like she is 24/7 on your mind. People have different tastes and you can’t judge them. Some will support GaGa, some will support Katy. And stop calling Rihanna a s** s**** when you stan for GaGa who said this back in 2009 “I’m a single girl, I like to have a good time. I just sleep with the guys in the band all the time because it’s easier.”

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

        I Don’t KNOW why Rihanna is the easiest Word she can say In every damn Situation.

        Not In the Mood for This C***, B**** Address those Rihanna fans you speak of and Curse them all you want, Don’t come for Rihanna Because I will Come for Your Horse-looking fav With Her Questionable gender Ass, K b**** ?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

        ^^ Calm down SMH

    • PRINCE MACHIAVEL July 31, 2013

      LMFAO!!!! Lolololol @B******, True Hurts! I Just Give You Your Money Back, You Come For My Fav, I Come For Yours, As Simple As That, NotFuckGivingAboutYourSaltyAss! Capiche?!!? Now Stay The F*** MadBitterPressed! Ciao C****!:-))))

  22. Loyalty July 31, 2013

    Gaga definitely.

  23. Loyalty July 31, 2013

    This is Gagas first single after a long time away. She is more anticipated. People will purchase and tune in just because its Gaga.

  24. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) July 31, 2013

    Gaga’s hype is Stronger, But katy’s Goal has always been Longevity , in Contrary to gaga, so….. 🙄

    It will be an Interesting Watch.

    I won’t care that Much though about who gonna be On Top, I Will check for both, But I’m More XD for Gaga’s Comeback.

    J.Cole Vs Kanye west: The female Version. Simply and basically!

    • miao July 31, 2013

      Always Kanye, always Lady Gaga. Simply and basically.

  25. E July 31, 2013

    how about who gives a s***? cant wait for gagas single and album.shes my girl. katy is cool.im not a fan but i like her songs here and there.if she releases a good song ill prolly download it. there’s room for both. both have huge fanbases so theyll both probably do well. im tired of stupid stan wars and the blogs that provoke them.

  26. TRUTH July 31, 2013

    Lies……….. Born This Way sold 6 million WW. Teenage Dream didn’t hit 3 mil yet sweety, and her Part Of Me re-release flopped.

    • Rosie July 31, 2013

      Kii, are you talking about worldwide? TD is past 5 million.
      If you’re talking about the US then nevermind, less than 3 million is right.

    • Mark111 July 31, 2013

      More lies……. Yes BTW sold 6 M WW, but TD sold 5.5M WW as well. In the US, TD out sold BTW by 400k and out sold it in the UK as well. May I add 6 #1 hits and two top 3 and it came out in 2010. BTW was the only #1 single on that album, Judas at 10, Edge at 3, You And I at 6 and Marry The Night was only at 29. #Oops

    • LTM July 31, 2013

      Where are you getting your facts from? TD sold 2.7 million in the U.S and 1.5 million in the U.K alone. It’s at 6 million worldwide. Take a seat.

      • Mark111 July 31, 2013

        Wiki, it was released in other countries too, so what? They don’t count? If not, then subtract away from Gaga’s cause she only did 2.2M in the US and 940K in the UK, so where did her 6M come from? Oh ok.

      • LTM July 31, 2013

        I’m saying it sold that amount in just two countries so 3million worldwide makes no logical sense. Those Wiki numbers were posted before the re-release, it had passed 6 million

      • Mark111 July 31, 2013

        My bad LTM, I mis-read your comment, lol.

  27. LTM July 31, 2013

    Applause will have stronger 1st week sales and will take the #1 spot first but Katy will get it back and ultimately outlast her in the top 10. If the Teenage Dream era has proven anything its that Katy’s music had longevity.

    • Perry Power July 31, 2013

      Thoughts on the PRISM golden truck?

  28. JP July 31, 2013

    I’m here for Katy.

  29. The Boy Toy July 31, 2013

    I haven’t been interested in Gaga since 09. I’m checking for Katy!

  30. channel_ROMAN July 31, 2013

    But I swore in Katy’s last interview she wasn’t hinting this soon release. I think it’s being rushed.

  31. stacey July 31, 2013


  32. HOTSTUFF July 31, 2013

    Katy will slay her dumb ass like what the f*** ‘applause’ can be about ? -_- …did yall see the lyrics gaga gave ? LOL.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

      WTF is “Roar” and “Prism”?

  33. Auntie_Jackie July 31, 2013

    Katy is going to slay her. Sorry Gaga fans!

  34. JER July 31, 2013

    Damn I see Katy Perry’s 2 stans stay doing the most. I’ll wait for first month album sales receipts OOP

  35. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) July 31, 2013

    Katy will Slay Caca. How many #1s did Born this way have again??? Especially compared to the #1s Teenage Dream had. This will be a massacre, Katy will show no mercy.

    I love this chick just as much as I love Rihanna.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

      “Born This Way” didn’t “have” as many #1 singles in the states, but it sold more album copies worldwide, earned GaGa a $188M+ tour, and that’s FAR more important than how it’s singles performed in the states …





  37. jfkasy July 31, 2013

    Gaga will get the early hit because she is more anticipated,but six weeks down the line katy will come out tops,then stay there for like 8 weeks.But Applause and Roar sound quite similar….Hmmm

  38. Jay August 1, 2013

    Check your sources. Now delete this post. IT’S ALL FAKE!

  39. . : : h 2 o : : . August 1, 2013

    GaGa will beat her (:

  40. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 2, 2013

    Beyonce fans are with gaga and Rihanna fans are with Katy.. So gonna be interesting

  41. Gag-her August 3, 2013

    Katy Perry music is iconic and remains relevant years later, she is up there with legends spawning so many no,1s from a album tieing her with Micheal Jackson. Gaga is more gimmicks we will see her plastered on every newspapers falling out of nightclubs, wearing busted clown outfits, using her fans who she doesn’t care about she’s all about the money, ask her ex colleagues. Gaga was only good when Laurie Gibson who also created Danity Kane was the mastermind her debut album. Katy Perry music will do the talking but I would not be surprised if her label sell her single album for $1 like Born this way just to get the numbers in, as we all know her millions of followers are actually fake most are bought just to give the most twitter followers. Katy Perry will reign.
