Katy Perry Tops Billboard Hot 100 With ‘Roar’

Published: Wednesday 4th Sep 2013 by David

She’s finally done it!

After seeing her attempts to new single ‘Roar’ to #1 thwarted by Robin Thicke‘s Hot 100 domination with ‘Blurred Lines’, Katy Perry has seen her hard work pay off this week.

Yes, that’s right.

It’s #1!

Full story below…

Four weeks after its release, ‘Roar‘ has now rocketed to #1 on the Hot 100, snatching the top spot away from Thicke to be crowned the highest selling single in the country this week!

Outperforming Eminem’s meteoric smash ‘Berzerk (#3)’, ‘Roar’s rise also sees her fight off  competition from Miley Cyrus‘ ‘We Can’t Stop’ which- quite interestingly- dropped a spot following her VMA performance, now perched at #4 in its thirteenth week of release!

Elsewhere, John Legend reigns supreme on iTunes R&B with his new single ‘All of Me‘, while his new LP ‘Love in the Future’ secures the #4 spot on the chart’s albums tally, helped in part great part by the momentum surrounding the romantic number.

      Get a number one single? Been there done that, try again boo.

  3. JJFan1814 September 4, 2013

    Applause is #5!! But ARTPOP peaked higher on presales and I don’t even think Prism cracked top 10 on iTunes presales.

    I think Gaga will sweep with the album sales….

    Congrats to all especially Eminem!

    • Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 4, 2013

      Prism went up to #6 in pre-sales. No one cares about where Flopplause is. I bet that thirsty b**** is regretting a rush release to overshadow Katy.

      • MicroPop September 4, 2013

        #5 is quite strong. So many artists (like Mariah, Beyonce and others) can’t even dream about a top 10 hit, not even a top 5!

    • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

      FYI, Prism did crack the top ten on iTunes in pre-sales.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

      Not only that but Applause and Gaga´s new songs are better. Music is the most important thing of all. Charts come second.

  4. Suicide Blonde September 4, 2013

    You know you are over when basic b****** like Katy and Miley overshadows you.

    #1 song/ Night stolen = wig snatched.

    • Kingstown September 4, 2013

    • 8 years in the game and queen RiRi is still snatching your fav’s nappy lace September 4, 2013

      Rihanna stole the night with her epic facial expressions. T***** Gay Gay who??

      • Kingstown September 4, 2013

        No lies>>>>

      • Suicide Blonde September 4, 2013

        I don’t hate her, i dislike her actions and fakeness, she’s very talented but….

      • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

        He only hates her since Madonna opened her mouth cos it was convenient for her when her Superbowl performance and new album were coming. @suicide loved Gaga, Born This Way album included. But a year later Madonna spoke and he changed his attitude as the good flip flopper he is 🙂

    • Bobby September 4, 2013

      How was her wig snatched? Katy could NEVERRRRR snatch Beyoncé’s wig. Not even on B’s worst day. Singing wise, dancing wise, performance wise, album sales, etc… Katy could never touch B.

      Congrats to Sara Barellis though!

  6. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

    Slay Katy Slay.

  8. Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 4, 2013

    The Queen of the Charts!! I knew she would pull through. Roar went platinum in less than 2 weeks, Robin’s days were numbered. This is Katy’s 8th #1 single
    I Kissed A Girl #1 for 7 weeks
    California Gurls #1 for 6 weeks
    Teenage Dream #1 for 2 weeks
    Firework #1 for 4 weeks
    E.T #1 for 5 weeks
    Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) #1 for 2 weeks
    Part of Me #1 for 1 week

        Beyflop is a non-factor. You EBT card carrying illiterate Beystans need to accept this and move on.

    • Rob September 4, 2013

      Katy is the QUEEN OF GENERIC. She can’t even sing a ballad song.

      • Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 4, 2013

  9. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

    LMAO T***** Caca must be seething for dear life knowing that Katy Perry has done something she cannot do anymore. In the UK where Samantha is based, Roar has outsold their entire top ten combined, including FLOPause.

    I cannot at FLOPause struggling more than Party feat Andre 3000, ultimate kiiiii. B**** is over.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

      A top 5 single is being over? Specially when your album sales and tour numbers are really good? Hmm NO. You are so damn basic.

      • HOTSTUFF September 4, 2013

        A top 5 single ? from the suppose queen of pop? LOL. After all that hype since 2 years ? LOL. After posing naked a thousands times like a cheap heaux in magazines ? LOL. After the release of the video on Good morning America ? LOL. After the Vma perfomance ? LOL. B**** stfu and deal with it it’s a FLOP.

  10. Beyawnce September 4, 2013

    Good for katy and Em although the asshole still hasn’t released it in the uk.

    • Suicide Blonde September 4, 2013

      Eminem is my mine b****…..your an ashole but i love you.

  11. Beyawnce September 4, 2013

    im now officially a ciara stan,katy has nothing against the queen cici.basic b****,nobody checking for her.rihanna and nicki suck so i guess ciara is my new idol

    • Beyawnce September 4, 2013

      Sam can you fix the comment section? LOL @ your failed attempt 🙂

  12. Beyawnce September 4, 2013

    Oh it is on iTunes LOL

  13. JJFan1814 September 4, 2013

    I’m just not here for the girls…I know Rihallah, excuse me, Queen Rihanna will give the music industry something fresh and exciting….Rih always experiments with a different formula with each 1st single. And is always successful.

    Guess I got to wait until the end of September//Beginning of October for signs of a new era if Rihvember is happening.

    • rih rox((beyonce insecure about unflattering pictures)) September 4, 2013


  14. Beyawnce September 4, 2013

    queen ciara slays this basic w****.t***** perry is a non talented w****.even miley cyrus is better.

  15. Beyawnce September 4, 2013

    Its finally available after waiting two f****** weeks ^_^

  16. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

    So even after running naked in the forest, being outshined by Miley H***** at the VMAs, fighting with PigRez, being shaded by Azealia Banks, numerous blow jobs and a pity party at the iTunes festival, and still FLOPause is struggling more than 1+1 algeba.

    The monsters need explain themselves, why did they risk an STD for t***** Caca, why? C** explain (see it?)

    • Suicide Blonde September 4, 2013

      Numerous blow jobs and a pity party at the iTunes festival.

      For f*** sakes i almost died.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 4, 2013


      I feel bad for them, Stop it.

    • britqueen September 4, 2013


    • Ballsy September 4, 2013

      Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii I done Died and Died Again @FLOPause is struggling more than 1+1 algeba.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

      You guys are so f****** basic. So if a fan of hers did something like that it means all the people who buy her music are like that and she is like that? Be f****** serious! The thing is she easily slays Katy Perry and the rest of models. Just that.

      • Ballsy September 4, 2013

        Bish shut up and enjoy the kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  17. LTM September 4, 2013

    About time. Love Blurred Lines still (even with radio abusing it to hell) but it’s time for a new #1. It feels right again, seeing Katy at #1 where she belongs. With the sales showing no sign of slowing down and a video on the way, I’m predicting Roar will stay #1 for about 4-6 weeks. Britney may knock her down for a week or two.

    I bet Gaga’s camp is regretting the unnecessary rush release of the ARTPOP era. She’s not flopping by any means but for Gaga, she’s underperforming. Especially compared to Katy, who sold more in a week than Gaga has in two. Or how Roar outsold all the songs in the top 10 on the UK charts by at least an 80k difference. Her team got arrogant and didn’t want Katy to shine but their plan backfired. Karma’s a b****.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 4, 2013

      100% Truth.

      I still Think #ROAR is Overrated in a Way, I find it Basic, But congrats to Katy Anyway.

      Katy proved that “Less is More” indeed.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

      Wasn´t Katy the one who rushed the single?????? Gaga´s new single was coming, it had a release date a since July. Katy suddenly appeared and the proof is that her video has not debuted, while Gaga had it ready by the time the song debuted. Katy rushed the era, not Gaga. Maybe just a month or so, but she rushed it.

      • LTM September 4, 2013

        Everyone knew since December of 2012 that Katy would be releasing around Summer of 2013. Gaga literally came out of the blue with Artpop. And then rushed the single earlier which failed. But, regarding another comment you made, do really believe Applause is quality music?

  18. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

    Weren’t the monsters saying T***** Caca cannot lose to Katy? Didn’t Caca stans like Pop Royalty say T***** Caca is determined this era? Why is FLOPause struggling harder than Countdown? I really want to know.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 4, 2013

      Oh Coward B****, I won’t have a Showdown With you In a F*****’ Katy post, i’m waiting for another MAJOR post Where i will Drag The Cytoplasm out of your Cells, cell By Cell and I will Snatch Each Mitochondria as a Prize like A Mario. 😀

      you will live for another day, be grateful to God, peasant.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

      LOL Applause is doing well even if it is not #1 in the USA. It´s not Countdown or Run the World.

  19. JJFan1814 September 4, 2013

    Can we just state our real life occupations?? Cause I really wonder if some of you have anything other than refreshing the comment section…. @.@

    Just curious!

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) September 4, 2013

    • rih rox((beyonce insecure about unflattering pictures)) September 4, 2013

      I am hobo the klown.

  20. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 4, 2013

    So Caca’s career has only lasted 5 years, poor you, peaked too early only to Fall like BlackBerry sales, so pathetic this copycat b**** is.

  21. Mike September 4, 2013

    She deserves it

  22. NN September 4, 2013

    we all know KATY & RIHANNA run the singles chart–they are smart when it comes to singles, I MUST SAY! ALBUMS-eggghhhhhhh not so much-singels charts to me are like whatever- in the end, the album sales tell it all..

    • Ballsy September 4, 2013

      YEt there is fallacy in your reasoning because long run they both outsell your favs!

  23. Stephy Tha Lambily September 4, 2013


  24. rih rox((beyonce insecure about unflattering pictures)) September 4, 2013

    Huzzah for Katy for snatching that donkey witch’s wig.

  25. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    Congrats Katy! So sad ppl cant just be happy for you. Instead once again they make is ALL about GAGA! This is your 8th #1 I see you coming for Rihanna wig!

    • T***** CACA is seething September 4, 2013

      Who’s daddy gay gay though kii go tend to floppluase

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        She is the person that inspired your name on here! Continuing to inspire the world I see… #I WIN

    • KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

      It doesn’t matter, gaGa will always be superior to Katy, she is more talented. Applause is doing well worldwide, it’s #5 on Hot 100 this week and it keeps selling 200+k a week. Btw, what;s your favorite GaGa’s single and album? I really like this song, it’s amazing and this performance >>>>>>>> kATY pERRY


      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        its #4 on the Hot 100 shes performing on GMA this upcoming Monday as well. Gaga isnt gonna let APPLAUSE flop trust

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        @KYLIE preach! And for all you F*** out there… This is NOT ME talking to myself! My favorite song honestly is probably Alejandro or Monster they sound so different and iconic

      • KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

        Yup, they are amazing. I would like her to make a Christmas album this fall too, not only Artpop. I liked Christmas Tree song so much, so catchy.

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 4, 2013

        My fave song by her right now is Burqa.

  26. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    @LOVEBIRD The definition of fan: a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular sport, art form, or famous person
    While you say you cant stand Gaga you find interest in EVERYTHING she does. Which makes you a fan! Welcome to the club girl! #MonsterBesties! 😀

  27. britqueen September 4, 2013

    congrats i guess, shes def more likeable and deserves it more than gagherface, but i hope eminem gets #1 next week 😉

  28. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    @ROSIE before you even say anything… Just stop! Lana’s most successful single is Summertime Sadness- End of Argument *skips away*

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      Why are you and A*** LIKE LADY GAGA so obsessed with me though?
      Lana is an album seller. Born To Die is at 5 million (using same source as Gaga’s 6 million figure) and T*****’s last huge hit was before Video Games was even uploaded to YouTube. Stop.

      • KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

        Chart News @chartnews
        WW sales: @LanaDelRey, Born To Die (Paradise Edition) 100,000 (3,047,000 total).
        1:43 AM – 5 Jan 2013

        Lana is nowhere near 4 million, let alone 5. She has sold 3.7-3.8 million maximum. Stop inflating her sales. GaGa >>> Lana and you will deal.

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Not you using twitter as a source. Bye. Interscope confirmed yesterday that it sold 5 million and Mediatraffic had it at 4 million literally a few months ago.
        And where is Kylie on the charts?

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        And wait at the tweet being from January 5. Mess.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        @ROSIE with SHIPMENTS you idiot! Lana WILL NEVER!

      • KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

        GaGa has SOLD over 6 million copies with Born This Way (Universal Music confirmed 6.8 in 2011 alone) and the album shipped over 8 million (Billboard). Lana is ~4 million, not more. And Kylie doesn’t have to sell s*** because she is a Pop icon who has nothing to probve. Lets see how long Lana will last.

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        The same source you continually use to say Born This Gay sold 6 million (Interscope Records) said it’s at 5 million just yesterday. I don’t know why you’re trying to come for this receipt when the Cutters used the same exact source (IR press release) to brag about T*****’s sales.
        And even if IR did inflate it Mediatraffic (TGJ f***’ favorite source) says its at 4.4 million at least.
        But you still think Gaga is the top b****, so of course Lana is never “doing it” in your delusional little suicidal mind, just like Gaga is never “doing it” again in the real world.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        Honey BTW was not Gagas first successful album! We actually know what success looks like! You have ONE successful Lana Album! TF and TFM were SO HUGE AND SUCCESSFUL! Dont make me bring in them sales honey! BTW is just a added bonus 😉

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Dead at Kylie being a pop icon. You must be a f** from Australia. No one remembers anything about her outside of Aussie gay bars except for the fact that she had breast cancer.
        We personally don’t know her at all here in North America.

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Lana is still on her major label debut era.
        You lost. T***** is done. And now that it’s selling well and having better longevity than Born This Gay Lana’s masterpiece Born To Slay will outsell T*****’s last album worldwide soon, and ChartFlop won’t even do 3 million worldwide. That is all.

    • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

      @ROSIE Im starting to think you say stuff just to hear yourself talk. like Ci-Error fans or something. I mean EVERYONE has accomplished more than Lana. Hell CIARA accomplished more than that h**! Lana has NO TOUR Success, NO Single Success, LITTLE ALBUM success, No Celebrities even acknowledge her, AND SHE HAS NO AWARDS! You are one of the MOST delusional people I have ever known!

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Sold out arenas across Europe. Cedric has yet to attempt to book an arena and is still doing ballrooms.
        Summertime Sadness, Video Games, and Blue Jeans top 10 in over 15 countries. More countries than any Cedric single has charted.
        Debut album sold at the very least 4.4 million worldwide (5 million according to her label). More than Cedric’s discography.
        11 awards. More than Cedric has won in his entire career.
        You really didn’t try, didn’t you? A quick google search would’ve answered every single one of those.
        T***** is done. You keep losing. See you in November when ChartFlop opens with even less than Rihfund’s next album.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        Those are supposed to be impressive receipts? I laugh at you effort *skips away giggling*

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        You couldn’t bring anything else up against Lana so I guess they were.

  29. NastiMitrash September 4, 2013

    Who cares this song is $hit anyway. Give me vocals Katy….

        Unfortunately Beyonce’s music isnt GENERIC enough AND she’s a VOCALIST…two things working against her in the Modern day HotGeneric 100! Basic bxtches have it easier…sad but true 🙁 kiii

        But hey, she’s still getting #1 Albums and sold out World Tours, she’s doing somwthing right! 😉

    • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

      When did Beyonce fans start sending hate Gaga’s way? Ignore CAKE LIKE LADY GAGA she is a b****, I love Beyonce!

      • SLAY_HIVE September 4, 2013

        Nothing personal, i just like to put that Cake like Caca bxtxh in her place!! Lol

      • Ballsy September 4, 2013

        The only Non generic music Beyonce has put out was 4 and her basic ass H** didn’t even support that as fully as they should. All her other music was jingles and Bow Down was the worst!

  32. KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

    Congratulations to her. And leave GaGa alone, she is doing well, Applause is selling 200+k a weeks in the USA alone. I read that Artpop has sold 45 000 copies based on pre-orders alone, and Katy just did around 5 000-10 000k. GaGa will slay her in album sales, tours and iconic performances, so she can’t lose 😉 I would like Kylie to make a duet with Legend G, it would slay!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 4, 2013

      I agree. Katy is only good for no. 1’s.

    • Jenny September 5, 2013

      no matter what,..people will always remember that Gaga has lost to Katy Perry.
      This is a chart battle.
      2nd, 3rd,..4th single…less people will talk about it. 😛

    LmAO I thought t***** gay gay was the queen of pop. Why is Apause getting slayed by Roar?? Is Apause gold yet?? The t***** is struggling so bad she had to ask her blowjob monsters to purchase Apause. I can’t at the downfall. We will see what happens to ArtPoop when it flops because her fans tried it.

    • JT>>>>JC>>>JB September 4, 2013

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        TD had a Re-Release. And it DID NOT outsell BTW worldwide so stop! And Remember Gaga has released 2 other MULTI platinum albums while Katy’s OOTB flopped! Gagas The Fame album outsold ALL of Katys albums combined

      • LTM September 4, 2013

        How did One of The Boys flop? Over 3 million sold worldwide and 1.5 million sold in the US and still selling.

    Gaga can’t win for s***. Katy out placed her (without a video mind you.), Miley stole the VMA’s (for better or worse.), she a lost case, I told ya’ll, no one cares for her s*** any more.

  41. Kim Kardashian stan September 4, 2013

    Katy & Rihanna run the hot 100 Katy will be sitting with legends soon like Rihanna is.

  42. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    Waits for @ROSIE to say… Lana was the most written about artist of 2012! LMAOOOO

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      You’re not denying it though.
      Basically clocking yourself. No one has given a s*** about T***** in the relevant countries since 2011, which is why Katy, Rihfund, and even Lana are currently slaying her worldwide.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        That’s why when Gaga name is googled over 600 million results are found. Smh delusion looks soo bad on you honey. I will pray for you, but your gonna have to see someone for professional help!

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Of course when she’s been out for 4 years longer she will have more results.
        Most Googled Women of 2012
        #1 Lana Del Rey – 722,000,000 Results
        #4 Lady Gaga – 388,000,000 Results
        Kii @ Lana having over 2x as many searches last year.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        Yup. Lana was releasing BTD AND Paradise while Gaga had yet release ANYTHING that year kiiii!

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        But I thought Lana was only relevant on Tumblr? I thought no one cared about her? I thought no one knew her? Not to mention she was the most written about.
        What about T*****? I thought she was on a 4728293 million dollar tour? I thought the hip gained so much headlines? What about the year before when she was on her “comeback?” She didn’t even get that many searches when people cared.
        2011: #1 – Lady Gaga 578,000,000 results
        Sold 1 million first week and still didn’t get as many searches.

    Grats Katy, but if an artist’s album and tour don’t do as good as their lead single, they’re real huge flops in my book. So you can have a trillion smash hit singles, I just can’t take something so cheap seriously…

    You let GaGa beat your ass twice and surpass you by light years at both already, so I guess you need to do some catching up.

    • LTM September 4, 2013

      But the California Dreams Tour sold out 97% of it’s dates and the Hello Katy Tour was equally successful. Not to mention TD sold over 2.7million in the US and almost 6 million worldwide. I fail to see how that’s a flop, especially when artist of younger fans don’t sell like that.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 4, 2013

        I didn’t say that’s a flop …

  44. XXX September 4, 2013

    Where is the troll FakeLike Lady Gaga? DEATH!!!!!

  45. Rosie September 4, 2013

    Little S*** telling me to seek professional help when it tried to end an argument that didn’t even start yet.
    F*****, I stay on your mind 24/7 yet you’re nowhere to be found when me & the rest of TGJ are dragging T***** to hell and back. Maybe your public library internet credit ran out? Maybe it was time for you to get to your shift at Family Dollar? I don’t know, but it’s disturbing.

    • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

      I made a personal tweet for you my account is @WhenWillUrFav … The last thing I am is a BROKE B**** unlike your e machine computer HAVIN ass

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        I know you did NOT just send all your seething over a ghetto ass blog comment section to Twitter. I really have you pressed, don’t I?

  46. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    A single cost $1.29… everyone calm down

  47. JOHNVIDAL September 4, 2013

    Seeing the type of pop music that tops the charts there´s no excuse for Celine Dion´s new single topping these same singles charts.
    And btw that Gaga´s new song S** Dreams, it´s everything pop needs to be. Katy´s basicness could never.

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 4, 2013

      “S** Dreams” is better than anything Katy has EVER done–sorry.

      Im so happy that Gaga remains fearless and continues to push her music forward. But I also like “BTW” way more than “The Fame.”

      “Heavy Metal Lover,” “Government Hooker,”Scheiße,” and “Blood Mary” >>>>> “The Fame”

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 4, 2013

      I still love Burqa tho.

      • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 4, 2013

        “Burqua” is a.ma.zing !

  48. KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

    I really think GaGa should do a Christmas album, she will easily slay easily!!!! It would sell more than any Lana’s album. Death at @Rosie trying to come for artists that are more successful than Lana. And it’s not only about success, it’s about impact, legacy, respect, iconic performances. Lana has none. She can’t compete with Gaga, Kylie and other gurls. Kylie is the most successful female artists in the UK after Madonna, so she is far from local. Try again.

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      Still talking about me?
      Not another Anglophone country. You don’t know the meaning of local. Stop.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 4, 2013

      Her song Christmas Tree is the s***….Kay? Yes, she could slay a Cristmas album but I would want more upbeat Christmas pop songs like Christmas tree.

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      And Kylie has none.
      See you next year when Young & Beautiful wins the Oscar for Best Original Song 😉

      • KYLIE MINOGUE STAN September 4, 2013

        Can’t Get You Out Of My Head is more iconic than everything Lana has done/will do in her life 😉

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Oh her forgotten Euro trash hit from 2002? Only bar f*** remember that song. Whatever.

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        I know you’re a stan but I’ll let you know.
        We don’t remember that performance in the real world. And Lana’s “infamous” performance still didn’t stop her from outselling every Localie album except Fever. 🙂

    • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013


  49. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    @ROSIE check my twitter @WhenWillUrFav I have a MacBook, IPad, IPod, IPhone, apple mouse, beats headphones get tf outta here!

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      A mess at that username.
      And at you having to brag about that. Beats ain’t s*** with that Skullcandy quality sound.
      Sennheiser HD 700 costs around $700. Get on my level.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        B**** I have a MacBook Pro retina, iPad retina, iPod 5th gen, iPhone 5th gen your point is?

  50. Rosie September 4, 2013

    F****** three twitter essays at least dedicated to me and I didn’t read a single one.
    The nerve. I bet daddy bought all of that for you.
    Go to bed. You’re obviously mad and tired.

    • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

      I liked this posts by accident, don’t think someone agrees. Oh and I’d LOVE to see proof. WTF is a skull candy! Everyone wants beats so goodnight! And if my dad did buy it all? YOU’RE A BROKE ASS LAME ASS JEALOUS C*** THAT WILL NEVER HAVE WHAT I HAVE

      • Rosie September 4, 2013

        Sis I have everything you have + the $700 earphones and a college education, something your bum ass will never afford since you’re spending all your time and money on s*** you probably barely use. I bet your house looks like a hut in Africa and you struggle to pay rent because you spent all your minimum wage money on s*** you can barely afford. You know Americans, trying to look good in public/Twitter but don’t have s*** in real life. And dead @ you having the low end $200 Beats.
        Like I said before I have you so pressed that you wrote a good five essays on me and posted them on twitter just because I clocked you with the hot piping tea on Lana currently being more relevant and known that T*****. It’s funny. You’re obsessed with me. Not even Lovebird has you this pressed.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        Do I need to post a picture of my house as well?

  51. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013


    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      How did you win? You took this dumb s*** over to f****** Twitter just because I clicked you multiple times on this post.
      And dead @ you trying to play victim when you attempted to come at me 2:27 and I didn’t even bother to log on until almost 3. The definition of a pressed basic b****.

  52. Rosie September 4, 2013

    It is not worth my time to argue with suicidal, overdramatic, illiterate f****** who write Twitter essays just because I called them a bum b****. Any other poster here would’ve just laughed it off and continued their day.
    Goodbye now. Maybe I’ll see you on the news tomorrow when they announced that another Gaga stan hanged himself because of bullying or whatever.

  53. . : : h 2 o : : . September 4, 2013

    CTRL + “F” = Rosie


    @LittleScheisse: @ROSIE before you even say anything… Just stop! Lana’s most successful single is Summertime Sadness- End of Argument *skips away*

    And you expect Rosie NOT to drag you?

  54. LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

    @ROSIE B**** Please! You Community College education have have several seats! I am admitted in a HUGE UNIVERSITY! So get tf outta hurrr! And I live in a HUGE house in the suburbs… I can easily post a picture if you’d like!

    • Rosie September 4, 2013

      I attend the University Of Toronto though, but nice try.
      And community college is STILL more education than you currently have and ever will get. You couldn’t name your so-called “huge” university.

      • LittleScheisse September 4, 2013

        University of Toronto :/ I would almost say you’re a good liar but who names their school on here? I must REALLY be pressing a button huh?

      • Rosie September 5, 2013

        It’s one of the top universities worldwide. Of course I should brag about it.
        Enjoy life at your unranked state college, f**.

  55. TeamBreezy September 4, 2013

    Blurred Lines was getting played out but baby this Roar song does not compare to the musicality of BL . Roar is a basic anthemic fail.

  56. JER September 4, 2013

    No one cares about John Legends and you cashing his checks Samantha!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, “Roar” should have already been # for 2 weeks prior, but Billboard is a MESS!!!!!! Allowing “Blurred Lines” and it’s ridiculous radioplay on the HOT AC stations to keep it peaking higher and higher. That tired ass song from March. Ch…

    ANYWAY, “Roar” slays and Katy Perry’s basic ass continues to slay the betters for some reason.

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 5, 2013

      “and Katy Perry’s basic ass continues to slay the betters for some reason.”

      & there we have it. Right. For some reason, the inferior, the basic, the mundane, the pedestrian, the lack luster…”slays”

      The fact that people are actually bragging about this speaks volumes about American pop music. It’s dire. Katy’s 8th #1 proves this.

      Are we really saying that Katy is amongst the true legends when she doesn’t even have a CLASSIC album?


      If people think that “Roar” is a legendary and iconic song, what can I really say?

      *prepares cyanide shake for myself*
