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).
Wanna grab some shovels and fuck up some hackers? @katyperry excited to hear your ROAR, sorry to hear about your truck!

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.
