Lady GaGa & Katy Perry Tweet Each Other About New Singles

Published: Sunday 11th Aug 2013 by Sam

As two of the most hyped releases of the year, Lady GaGa and Katy Perry‘s respective projects – ‘ARTPOP’ and ‘Prism’ – are being pit against each other by critics and fans alike.

And we’re not against it. At all.

Purists can sing Kumbaya all day long, yet the fact remains: there is only one top spot. Indeed, given the similar lanes the ladies play in (not to mention the overlapping of their release windows), this is very much a head-on collision. A clash of the titans, if you will.

And while it’s certain that the divas (and their teams) are well-versed in this, it appears they’re playing a game of “sugar, spice, and all things nice”. For now.

Taking to Twitter, the Billboard belles discussed each other’s new singles (‘Applause’ and ‘Roar’ respectively).

Responding to the “coincidental” leak of both songs yesterday, GaGa initiated the chat by writing:

Perry responded, sharing her excitement for ‘Applause’ (which arrives in full on August 19th):

Perhaps our cynicism got the best of us and the ladies actually do share a mutual excitement for each other’s projects. Who knows. For now, though, we’ll file this one under “I’ll Share My Fanbase, If You Share Yours”.

‘Prism’ arrives on October 22nd, while ‘ARTPOP’ hits stores on November 11th. Their lead singles singles, ‘Roar’ and ‘Applause’, impact iTunes on August 12th and August 19th respectively.

Your thoughts?

        It will flop hunny. She releases songs that are pure s***. Then she claims it as art. And her Aid Monsters lap it up. Cant wait for #ROAR to shut this down, I feel sorry for Caca, Have several seats.

      The promo artpop campaign looks nothing like bionic. You Xtina fans r so desperate for ur queen to win again. That’s y u can’t stand gaga. Y can’t u s**** just be happy for gaga? She loves Christina. Smh.

  5. Thirst August 11, 2013

    These ladies are smarter , than all you bloggers, the fact that you believe that there is only 1 top spot says it all, no artist truly gives a s*** about no.1’s nowdays its all about sales and making there money, what if Katy was no.1 on billboard and gaga was np.1 for weeks on itunes, or gaga dminates no.1 i the UK whilst Katy dominates no1 in the US and the a few weeks later vice versa? see no 1 gives a s*** with so many fragmented charts its all a game and as long as hype is generated to make them stay relavent they don’t care, what you think is Kumbaya is them helping each other stay relavent and everyone else falling for the so called war!

    • FentySoSnatched August 11, 2013

      So two people can be at number one at the same time?

    • Blackout2.0(TheReturnOfUrbney) August 11, 2013

      The struggle to argue for the sake of arguing. @Thirst Last I checked there actually is only ONE number one spot, so unless you’re coming to tell me they don’t care about going to number one they ARE competing.

  6. mekaela August 11, 2013

    Fake friend katy perry she only can sell in america no one gives a dam about her around the world no wonder her husband left her ass through text and she have the nerve to come for ri b**** you need to shut up all her men dump her she went and cry in vogue how much she loves john mayer he felt sorry for her and took her back make sure u s*** clean katy before u come for rihanna

    • FAF August 11, 2013

        2. US
        3. Germany
        4. UK
        as of 2013. Too bad your fave can’t even succeed in the one market where she’s relevant.

    Exclusive: Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Is a Pop Music Masterpiece

    Posted on August 9, 2013 by Jemuel DaSilva

    Katy Perry’s latest album is a pure masterpiece.

    This afternoon, I was invited to a small listening session of Katy Perry’s new album “Prism” in North Hollywood, CA, and I heard ten songs (the final version may contain 13 or 14). I am not allowed to give a full review, or even close to one, so I hope this article stays up.

    I have always respected Katy Perry as a person and — for the most part — as an artist. She never touched me in the way Madonna, Alanis Morisette, Bjork or even Prince has. Needless to say, that has all changed with “Prism.” It is an epic album that not only redefines pop music, but will turn Katy Perry from a superstar into a history-making megastar. Madonna will always be the Queen of Pop, but Katy Perry will definitely be making a similar impact that Madonna did with “Like a Prayer” and “Ray of Light.”

    The reason that Katy Perry succeeds where other wannabe pop queens fail is because she is not trying to be another Madonna. She is using Madonna’s influence to create her own path. Some may find similarities between some of the songs on Katy’s album and Madonna’s masterpiece “Ray of Light.” But I found the album to be more in line with Alanis Morisette’s “Jagged Little Pill,” the best album of the 1990s.

    I am not allowed to mention any of the songs by name. My favorite song is one in which Perry looks back at a relationship and blames herself for the ultimate demise. It starts off slow and builds to an emotional climax. A lot of the songs are about love and Katy refuses to play the role of the victim.

    I can talk about the first single, the rock-electronic infused “Roar,” since it will be released Monday. It is certainly is a great and powerful song about self reliance and self empowerment, but I found other songs on the album more deserving to be a single. However, “Roar” is a safer choice since it doesn’t steer far away from Kerry’s past hits.

    There is a reason why a cocaine addict named Lady Gaga has been releasing pornographic videos, faking hip injuries to cover up for bad ticket sales, and sitting still while her fans tweet cruel messages to Katy Perry. Gaga’s album has, so far, generated negative buzz. ARTPOP was supposed to be the big album of the season. Needless to say, “Prism” will jump all over it. It’s safe to say that the album will see Perry become a Grammy goddess as well.

        Not to mention tour numbers ………………

        SMH .. KandyTits will forever live in GaGa’s shaddow 😥

    • miao August 11, 2013

      • stella August 11, 2013

        So is Applause. Generic dance song. But who is surprised? Her entire discography agrees 😉

      • miao August 11, 2013

        You heard Applause? Damn, i’m so jealous.

    • ASBEENISH August 11, 2013

      T***** CACA WILL SEETHE. Katy gonna reclaim those sales boo 😉

      • FAF August 11, 2013

        Applause sounded a growling, howling mess 😆

    • enough onika (kmart queen) August 11, 2013

      Now it’s time to deal serious matters, rihoena can’t be in the conversation. when we discuss microwave albums we’ll give her a call

      • stella August 11, 2013

        As if GaGa’s or Katy’s album are some kind of groundbreaking music. The one makes generic dance trash with repetitive structure – rararara gagagaga popopoker face alalalajendro judadaddas, the other onegeneric pop bubblegum music for kids. Diamonds or Stay are better than anything those two have released so far.

      • ASBEENISH August 11, 2013

        Whats your problem with Nicki boo? ^ 🙁 And I agree GonaRiha can’t be in this discussion.

    • Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 11, 2013

      Rih needs to do something negative to gain back peoples attention because right now no one cares only her stans.. She needs to post a half naked picture in instagram. Or shade Lady gaga or Katy.

      • stella August 11, 2013

        Oh really? Have you seen that video where Lady GaGa was COMPLETELY NAKED? Aren’t basic costumes and naked poses the only thing that she uses to be noticed? And stop worrying about Rihanna, worry about your Beyonce who has been trolling you since April with snippets.

      • Britney Disappears August 11, 2013

        so real sis.

    • stella August 11, 2013

      Where is S******? Isn’t she releasing her new album this fall? Looks like there is no hype and that people talk more about Rihanna (who is on vacation btw).

    • let’s be blunt August 11, 2013

      she outta bizness. she probably in a strip club in miami.

      @braz bey you just wait. there’ll be some stuff soon.

  12. jada fire stan August 11, 2013

    Roar is a mess, katy is definitely trying too hard. i listened to the full leak of applause and it’s so so. it’s not trash like that aura song but it’s ok with a lot of noise.

  13. BRITNEY DISAPPEARS August 11, 2013

    Where is Rihannabe??

  14. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 11, 2013

    LMAO I cannot at T***** Caca’s thirst, she is clearly intimidated by Katy’s rising POP power.

    ROAR has been a trending topic for a day straight now and has received radio airplay, in spite of the leak. T***** Caca leaks her own song and the world is mute and unconcerned LMAO.

    T***** Caca should just hang it up flat screen, she was cute for the little while but the public is sick to death of the Madonna plagiarism she is serving. More naked forest runs and wheel chair antics from the fakest Madonna B side, now nude model t***** b**** gimmick.

    Better get those paws up and run naked in the forest once you hear Katy Roar because she is coming to slay Caca once again.

    • enough onika (kmart queen) August 11, 2013

      yeah yeah yeah, now GIVE US A BREAK. You’ve been repeating this chapter for 18 hours now….HUSH smh

    • Beyawnce August 11, 2013

  21. TRUTH August 11, 2013

    IDK what drugs you pressed f****** are taking but there is no Full Applause Leak. The whole song isn’t even out yet let alone has been confirmed to be anything but a 7 second demo still. Please stop the lies and shade you miserable queens

  22. cake like lady gaga August 11, 2013

    I love seeing @Shitbird seething 😀 😀

    B****, you will remain seething because GaGa is gonna slay Katy

    Paw Dat

  23. Bey-Minaj August 11, 2013

    I think Gaga is reaching out to Katy to avoid a J Cole/ Kanye West slaying. Everyone thought that Kanye would outperform Cole but Cole turned around and slayed him. Katy will slay the f out of Gaga and I can’t wait! Bones are gonna be flying!

    • ASBEENISH August 11, 2013

      Gurl You excited for Nic’s third album? And yes. Caca Will be dismissed by SLAYty Perry 😉 😀 😀

      • Bey-Minaj August 11, 2013

        Gurl I am salivating the arrival of the Pink Print. I know it will slay my life all over again like PF and RR did. Uhhh let me go stalk Nic’s Instagram.

  24. JER August 11, 2013

    “Roar” is flawless pop. Gaga better bring FIRE. I’m actually kinda irritated how good “Roar” is. I was personally hoping Katy Perry would flop this era but I guess we’re stuck with this basic b**** for a while now. I’ll be in the corner seething.

    • ASBEENISH August 11, 2013

      PREACH LMFAOOOO XD 😉

  25. Molly August 11, 2013

    The fakest thing ive ever seen… Gaga knows she intimidated

  26. Fierce & all August 11, 2013

    U h*** so bitter. Lady Gaga kills em with kindness and the queens can’t take. Madonna wanted so bad to humiliate Gaga to get her to retaliate after she dissed but Gaga kept it moving like a lady and a bad b****. Gaga is serious about her music and career and I can’t wait to see how this era goes down! #pawsup

    • PRINCE MACHIAVEL August 11, 2013

  27. Lil Mo Stan and trey burkes husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point) August 11, 2013

    Disregarding the fact that roar sounds a little “preteen” that breakdown and hook gives me life! However, Katy has a tendency, to at least me, have one good song, then that song gets wack after a few months. Like, wide awake was my s***, but I haven’t listened to it in the longest. I was just watching bad romance video yesterday though. Point is katy makes safe, basic pop songs that are cute here and there. She’ll never have “impact”. That said, neither will “Slaydy Godga”. She makes cute songs, and The first album was straight, but she just doesn’t have that thing. That appeal. Almost like Madge has done that before, so it’s played. Thats why, in my opinion real legends dont need “gimmicks”. Madge wasn’t a gimmick. She had versatility. Rihanna, Beyonce, MJ, Whitney, hell, even Celine dion (though I don’t particularly like her) are legendary in my eyes because they didn’t need gimmicks. And b4 yall try and drag rihanna, look at her stats. She was supposed to flop after MOTS, but she Still slays, and she doesnt have to give a whole cabaret show and dance routine! She’s an iconic personality. Wake me up when gaga, katy, smiley cyrus, and Taylor quick slay whilst not feeling “contrived”.

    In conclusion Whitney>beyonce>= Madonna> Nicki minaj > Ciara and Kelly Rowland> Gaga, kitty purry> Rebecca Black> Nivea amd lil mo >Justin, Taylor, Smiley.

    Ok,I’m ghost!

    • JER August 11, 2013

      You did not just say Nivea. “Okay” was my JAMMMMM

    • ASBEENISH August 11, 2013

      Yay Nicki 😉 😀

    • Fierce & all August 11, 2013

      Nice paragraph u wrote. Won’t change the fact that Gaga has impact in pop culture. Gaga is an artist with creative control over her craft. Not some little puppet like Rihanna for exec’s to get rich off of. If anyone is a fad it’s nicki. She doesn’t even have a huge following like she use to anymore after that disgrace stupid h**. The dwindling of hits compared to a while ago in her catalouge prove my point.

    • Bey-Minaj August 11, 2013

      Ummm Rihanna does not need a whole cabaret and dance routine cause she can’t dance. Plain and simple. How do you expect her to slay at stuff she sucks at.
