Watch: Lady Gaga Debuts ‘Dope’ Live At 1st Annual Youtube Music Awards

Published: Sunday 3rd Nov 2013 by Rashad

Lady Gaga‘s emotional performance of ‘Dope’ – the latest buzz single from her November 11th due album ‘ArtPop’ – won over fans and critics alike at the 1st annual Youtube Music Awards tonight.

Joining a line up that featured the likes of Eminem, M.I.A., and more, Gaga performance saw her strip down in more ways than one – trading in her normal eye-popping fashions for flannel.

The tear-filled acoustic plea came just a day after the tune made its way to the net – much to fan delight.  Still on the fence if you should add it to your Itunes collection?

Well, this live performance may be all the convincing you need…

    MESS MESS MESS. I’m laughing so hard. The views dwindling at the view counter for this flop ass show was more entertaining than this trash.

        I think you spend more time of your life bullying than having az own life. 😀 😀 And you know, that’s pathetic.

        Your life means so worthless.

    oh lady where do I start… smh.. I use to like lady gaga so much!! but I just cant get in to her anymore there is something about her that comes across so fake and trying to hard damn!! all we was asking from you was to create a solid pop album with great songs like “paparazzi,bad romance,marry the night” but NO you made all these songs that a lot of people cant even relate!! I gave up on this chick long time ago sorry I just can’t with this era.

    • FAF November 4, 2013

      Me too her album isn’t good & I used to LOOOOVE her ! Even last yr after BTW bc I liked Heavy Metal Lover, Judas, Edge of Glory, MTN & BTW

  3. WORKBISH November 3, 2013

    This was wrong on so many levels…

  4. mekaela November 3, 2013

    Im sorry to say this but gaga starting to look desperate and a damn fool its pathetic when will these musicians realize u need to be yourself gaga is so lost her outfits are not talked about anymore miley needs to watch and learn shock value dont last no one cares about gaga anymore and thats the truth her being naked running in the wild no one cares or talks about her anymore she and miley looks desperate they try to emulate rihanna but rihanna dont need to look desperate because ri is natural with her swag and have personality

  5. mekaela November 3, 2013

    People are not shock anymore gaga just look drunk and pathetic she has a voice but people dont have time where did her poker face go her earlier days was good but now she looks a mess she was evil to people now karma I bet christina laughing her ass off

  6. I am above u November 3, 2013

    Did she smoke some of the ” Dope” before she debuted it??

  7. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) November 3, 2013

    I don’t see a woman when I look at her photos….Song is like everything else she’s released…terrible

  8. B****** are a mess November 3, 2013

    This h** takes my name to a whole new level

  9. B****** are a mess November 3, 2013

    Waves this h** pass like i’m working at a toll both! B**** bye!

    • B****** are a mess November 3, 2013

      Correction—->Toll Booth

  10. christinastherealtalent November 3, 2013

    Gaga did too much too soon! Now that she is 5 years into her career, she needs to evolve more as an artist. Quit with the tired ass shock tactics.

    • Common Sense November 3, 2013

      That’s all she ever had going for her though…

  11. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 3, 2013

    Wow, she looks desperate, deprived and pathetic in this, what the f*** is this s***?

    And this is the talented “vocalist” people rav about when there were more screams in that vocal than a movie theatre premiering The Conjuring.

  12. Music Critic November 3, 2013

    Lady Gaga is more than a Pop Star she is an ARTIST first and foremost. She doesn’t write for the charts she writes for the music. I think you care more about her “Flopping” than she does. She is making art the way she wants to. If you don’t get than you weren’t meant to.

    • Forgive Rihanna, lord, so I can stan for her again November 3, 2013

      I agree. Beyonce is the one who is desperate for chart success. I remember her interview in 2001 and she says do you want to be mainstream or artistic and she said, ‘ I want a hit record ‘ This was what she said at ‘ 19 ‘.

      Artpop sounds more artistically richer than all of the snippets that beyonce dropped from her postponed album. I mean Swine shits on ever beyonce song i have heard in the last 10 years.

      If Artpop was a Rihanna album, everyone would love hit.

      • Micks November 3, 2013

        B**** stop talking about BEYONCE and what she said when she was 19 of all things! She has proved she longevity, this AINT about her!

      • Music Critic November 3, 2013

        Well I don’t fully agree about Beyoncé because although she does strive for the charts, I don’t feel that that is her only goal. She really does take music as an art probably not as much as Gaga but the way he does single ladies on tour is very much artistic. but i see where you coming from. We don’t have to rip other artist to boast the artist we like I f****** hate that it’s so catty!

      • Mileys movement November 3, 2013

        Rihanna is becoming forgotten, Beyonce has become tired and GaGa is just going on a downward spiral.

      • Forgive Rihanna, lord, so I can stan for her again November 3, 2013

        It is beyonce’s goal, hence why she became so THreatned when another black girl ( rihannna ) started to sell, that she hired Rita Whora to jack rih style, music, tweets, career blueprint etc to take her competition out. Bey and matthew have never ever liked to competition. So now way, is beyonce all about being organic. Organic singers dont push their LP back.

        Beyonce’s muisc art? LOL LOL none of her ghetto RNB jams are artist. None of her videos of Photshoots are art. Rihanna is more art than BEYONCE EVER WILL BE. Even that song, love without tragedy is more ART than any beyonce. Rih’s new cover with Inez and vindooh is art. Damien Hirst picked Rih for his new Art project

        You need to go to an art gallery love. You clearly do not know what ‘ ART ‘ IS.

        Beyonce does not know who Jeff Koons is. She does not know who Damien Hirst is. It shows in her wack, stale dated imagery.

      • Lydia November 4, 2013

        Are you in her brain b****? No so have a seat. Youre using what she said over 10 years ago, fast forward to 2011 she specifically did not make 4 for the charts now bye!

      • Lydia November 4, 2013

        And actually, Beyonce is very into art, check her Tumble she knows many artists without jumping on their bandwagon.

      • mekaela November 4, 2013

        No one is denying this woman talent but the foolishness is over shadowing her talent she is going around dressing a fool singing in her panties people tired of that she needs to use her voice gaga have no style or s** appeal she looks like a boy her and miley naked at least ri looks good people want to see s** appeal at least adele looks cute geez gaga looks like someone u see on skid row the way she dresses she comes off as a joke she talks about art what is her art rihanna is the only pop star that can be compare to madonna no one want to accept this because ri is black i never saw gaga as the next madonna if she was so talented she should not need this shock value alicia sat play the piano sing her ass off alecia dont need the foolishness talent font need all this dummy down of music.

    • Slayty Perry (Legendary Lovers) November 3, 2013

      By artist do you mean an Xerox machine?

    • Jamie November 3, 2013

      Artist?? more like attention seeking gimmick!

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) November 3, 2013

      LOL!! Stop. Yet “Do what you want” became an official single after “chart” success…

      • Music Critic November 3, 2013

        She still signed to a record label so im pretty sure that wasn’t only her decision. Come with a stronger defense then that baby.

    • Common Sense November 3, 2013

      LMAO if she didn’t care about the charts she wouldn’t have released that heaping pile of s*** called Applause as her first single.

      • FAF November 4, 2013

        Umm.. Gaga writes for the charts but when she doesn’t do as well & she gets tired of haters she says she doesnt. Had Katy flopped & gaga outsold her, she wouldn’t have said that. Same w/ Beyonce. If she didnt care about charts she wouldn’t have released 6 singles within 9 mos and toured while pregnant (which can be risky)

        she wanted a successful album & it was platinum in the US but didnt do as well as her others thats why shes scared to release bc her chart success is dwindling, tbh

  13. Molly November 3, 2013

    I’ve never seen someone as desperate and pathetic as Gaga.

  14. Forgive Rihanna, lord, so I can stan for her again November 3, 2013

    Back in spring, after beyonce failed to take Rih out the game, everyone then said, gaga, who has bigger tours than RIH, would come back and assert her place as the worlds biggest POP STAR. Now look at where IS GAGA?

    Such a shame, that the women from ‘telephone’ are both on their way out. LOL LOL. Still……..they have their $ 100 mill tours. OOOOP! Rih now has one too. Oh dear. HA HA

  15. Venus November 3, 2013

    I dont get you guys this was so artistic and beautiful its so funny because all of you come to talk s*** about her

    • Common Sense November 3, 2013

      You must have a murky taste in art.

  16. Music Critic November 3, 2013

    Everbody is so caught up on how an artist is suppse to be but if they follow that just because other people want them to than they will no longer be an artist instead they will be just be a pop star and that’s not all that Gaga wans to be. She wants to be artist first and to be an artist you have to do art that you feel is right not just what sounds radio friendly.

    • Common Sense November 3, 2013

      B*******. She wants people to THINK she is an artist first. A real artist doesn’t need to try so damn hard to be an artist. It comes naturally and effortlessly to them. Nothing about Gaga is natural; it’s all forced to the extreme.

      • Music Critic November 3, 2013

        I think you have to much hostility for a conversation about other people and their lives. Second, she is not trying hard at all it’s just that art is deeper than what meets the ee and ear and you don’t understand ad that’s find it’s not for everyone. She will still make this “garbage” because it’s her garbage that she created and she loves it. God Bless

      • JOHNVIDAL November 4, 2013

        @common sense
        Please use a little bit of what your name says. You seem very educated when you talk about religion, ignorant people and queen Mariah. I´m sure you don´t believe the words you say about Gaga, it´s just that you hate her for some reason. I´m sure you know damn well she is so above Katy Perry, Rihanna and the rest, who are her peers. Artpop is a great album. One of the best of the year. Even some of the people who like to shade her are admitting it.

  17. Jamie November 3, 2013

    So boring + she looked a f****** mess.

  18. Forgive Rihanna, lord, so I can stan for her again November 3, 2013

    EM killed this awards. He really is the best rapper. I love hime so much, he is s*** as f***. YUM! He has got better with age.

  19. Micks November 3, 2013


  20. Selenator November 3, 2013

    The winners list is absolute bullsh*t just like the show. Gaga was the best thing of the whole stream. IDC though, Come & Get It already won a VMA this year. That video award show>>>>this flop one.

    • Mileys movement November 3, 2013

      Slow down still struggling on the charts boo?

      • Selenator November 3, 2013

        #9 on pop radio. Does Miley still want to borrow Selena’s VMA or is she still waiting to borrow Selena’s two Emmys?

    • Common Sense November 3, 2013

      LMAO VMA mean something now? They didn’t mean s*** when quality artists appeared on the show and they mean even less now that “singers” like Selena Gomez is on the scene.

  21. My face is BEEEAATTTTT hunty November 3, 2013

    She’s so f****** ugly

  22. Mileys movement November 3, 2013

    She looked & sounded a mess. #NotHereForIt #YourTired

    • Selenator November 3, 2013

      Death @ Miley’s illiterate fans calling someone’s performance a mess when her VMA performance is the worse of all time. Miley can’t sing or dance. All she does is walk around stage and sing off pitch trying to be Rihanna lol.

      • Common Sense November 3, 2013

        Ultimate Death at a Selena fan calling the kettle black. Miley looks like an amazing vocalist when compared to that shrill, thin, nonexistent voice of Selena Gomez.

  23. christinastherealtalent November 3, 2013


    Gaga does not write for the music. All she cares about is chart placement and sales. She even made a comment to Carly Jae Respen a while back because Call Me Maybe was breaking all these records and Gaga came for her saying “I’m coming for you”…such a b**** ass thing to say! Then, Venus was already lined up as the 2nd single, but suddenly the day after DWUW is released to itunes and after seeing how it shot straight to #1, they change their minds. Gaga is a pathetic hypocritical attention w**** who completely rips off everybody else’s style and sound. It’s just sad that she has stans like you who are just as deluded as she is.

  24. Forgive Rihanna, lord, so I can stan for her again November 3, 2013

    People are unfairly hating on Gaga. I just listened to jewels and drugz.It also feat Twist and he kills it. The beat is PURE TURN UP – WHEN IT DROPS IN CLUBS, N***** WILL LOSE THEY MIND. If rih came out with people would love it.

    THis hatred for GAGA is soooooo transparent.

  25. Foni Braxton November 3, 2013


  26. Common Sense November 3, 2013

    Gaga trying hard to push her “art” as always.

  27. ratedxxx(bad chick) November 3, 2013

    so now we have a youtube awards show now?….what’s next itune single charts awards?

    this time around I was hoping gaga would stop with the extra s***, and just focus on her talents, singing and entertaining…

    so far applause is the only song that I liked so far…

    the song with r kelly(can’t remember the name), sounded so much like an xtina cut..she even sounded like her…

    dope is garbage…I was hoping gaga would come harder this time around….

    I will always f*** with her, because she has real talent..but damn

  28. HoneychildPlease November 3, 2013

    Poor gaga!!!! This happens when the SHOCK VALUE is long and gone tisk tisk!

  29. rih rox((U mad Bro?))(( staning for H20’s previous rant)) November 3, 2013

    Hey Gaga, Marilyn Manson called… he wants his face back.

  30. Anita Faker November 3, 2013

    There is a major disconnect between Gaga and the GP this time around. The shock factor died in 2011.

    • HoneychildPlease November 4, 2013

      Your name though…LOL! stop it!

  31. ciarantheceat November 4, 2013

    Constant negativity, if you dont like it then dont comment.
    You are clearly obsessed.

  32. Tisha November 4, 2013

    Her face is a drug PSA all by itself.

  33. Sisqo is a legend November 4, 2013

    “We Could, We Could Belong Together”.

    I Like This performance, i love When Artists Strip Down And Show Emotions Every Now and Then, The Song is Damn Good And This Performance is Great.

    The Song is Already #1 in 60 Countries. 😀

    You Sad B****** are Haters and it’s Obvious, Now Way In hell Y’all didn’t like Even one song off “Artpop”, No Way.

    Your Negativity and Self-hatred is Showing, you all need Love and loving yourselves more. 🙄

    “Free My Mind, Artpop, You Make My Heart Stop”

  37. JOHNVIDAL November 4, 2013

    LOLOL What a bunch of desperate haters with zero arguments to back their hate up. Meanwhile “Dope” is #1 in itunes.
    I don´t know if you don´t know what some English words mean or something cos you make no sense at all. She´s doing well, she´s obviously a real artist and the album is great to amazing. She´s better than her peers. Just move on.

  38. DaHotNig November 4, 2013

    Anyone that can’t see the beauty and art in the lyrics and presentation if this song is a f***** moron! Lady Gaga battled drug addiction so she was singing she needs her fans, friends, and God more than dope. She’s revealing her demons and all you dumb s**** can think about is bad romance. Grow the f** up, that’s what she’s trying to do!
