SXSW Declines Lady GaGa ‘Doritos’ Performance

Published: Friday 28th Feb 2014 by David

Lady GaGa may be one of the world’s highest selling entertainers, but it seems not even her star power was enough to win over the folks over at ‘SXSW.’ 

Why the event’s organisers refused to let her perform at this year’s show?

Array

Full story below…

Upon learning of her request to rock the annual show, the city of Austin, Texas refused to sign the necessary permits that would have allowed the performance to go ahead, citing ‘safety concerns’ as their cause for not doing so.

Indeed, after hoping to perform at the festival’s outdoor ‘Dorito‘s stage, GaGa’s popularity served to thwart her plans, with the city fearing her star power would pull in an audience the venue would be unable to handle.

In a statement released this week, Don Pitts, manager of the City of Austin Music & Entertainment division, explained:

“Our conclusion was based primarily on public safety concerns. We look at the size and capacity of the location covered by the permit being sought and how it fits with the anticipated attendance, based on event capacity and promotion. At the end of the day, it’s a parking lot.”

    that sucks for gaga

  2. Basura Caliente February 28, 2014

    Translation: No one wants Gaga anymore.

  3. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me February 28, 2014

    I’m sure there is some truth to this, as she probably would draw a large crowd. However, I have a feeling SXSW doesn’t even know she released ARTPOP, considering the General Population is unaware she has new music out, and they probably went for someone more relevant.

  4. ARTFLOP February 28, 2014

    Self-absorbed, petulant, thrash, dated and not original !!!

  12. Flake Like Lady Gaga February 28, 2014

    Lady Gaga is a scam…….

    In a move of desperation, Ticketmaster and Gaga’s PR team sent out press releases that Gaga’s three dates in the UK had sold out in five minutes.This was a way to give an illusion that there was great demand to see Lady Gaga. But what really happened is that after five minutes, thousands of tickets were moved to
    Ticketmaster’s secondary site GetMeIn, where
    Ticketmaster is selling the tickets for twice as much.

    “I can’t believe Lady Gaga would pull such a stunt and rip off all her fans,” a Twitter user named @LilmonsterLuke angrily said.

    A lot of other fans were angry as well, with many saying they will no longer support the fallen pop superstar. Some even believe Ticketmaster should be investigated. “Why can’t Gaga sell out tickets the honest way instead of big PRstunts?” another fan said. Lady Gaga’s ARTRAVE Tour begins in the United States this May.

    Let’s see how long this tour lasts without another “hip injury” to cover up for poor ticket sales.

    Even worse, it is believed that Ticketmaster themselves held back thousands of tickets to give an illusion that there is great demand.

  13. Summertime sadness February 28, 2014

    And her artrave tour is gonna flop so hard.

  14. ABC February 28, 2014

    Lol @ the cocky monsters disappearing after this disastrous era. Where y’all at?

  15. Paws Down Monsters February 28, 2014

    I wish she’d ‘split’ from her fans, Twitter & just disappear. She’s a drugged out loon. She’s an over-produced, un-talented freak show who resorts to over-the-top antics to keep attention on herself since the music isn’t good enough. Mediocre and completely unmemorable music.Twenty years from now, she’ll be “what was that singer’s name who wore the meat outfit?”

    🙁

  16. Caca February 28, 2014

    Finally, LAY OFF THE PRETENTION. Marina Abramovic, Koons, Donatella Versace, blah blah blah blah blah blah…… dull, dull, dull

  17. Tweet Her This February 28, 2014

    Women and the entire LGBT community deserve better role models than Gaga.

    Everything about Gaga is fake and contrived, she needs to retire and let actual musicians take control once again. Her fans desperately need to grow up as well.

  18. Dark horse February 28, 2014

    Yea where is Gagas so called fans like @Johndival @CakeLikeGaga @StopTheDrama etc who claimed Artpop would outsell Prism, Gaga your career is at a all time low hopefully this will humble you and your disgusting fans who suck d*** for single purchases.

  19. Rrir4Ever February 28, 2014

    Overexposure is what happened to Ms. Gremanotta. The constant need to be in the public eye and the outlandish costumes have gotten stale. Now, she has resorted to appearing in the nude, a sure sign of a has-been trying to stay relevent.

  20. Lady MehGaga February 28, 2014

    Lady Gaga’s sole motivation is just to be famous. Nothing more nothing less.

    I just am so tired of the word “art” thrown around these days by pop singers, but especially Gaga overuses it. Think about it. Do great rock bands/pop bands carry on about their art when they discuss their music? They just try to write good songs and let their songs speak for themselves.

    Gaga is an attention seeker. I’d like her to explain this whole concept of “art” that she talks so endlessly about, and that apparently so many journalists from the Billboard Magazine, Rolling Stone, Vogue, Glamour, The Telegraph (UK) praised her.

  21. Lady MehGaga February 28, 2014

    The flash in the pan will die out soon!

    Gaga’s music is boring, garbage and predictable. She has mediocre talent so she goes for shock value. Lady Gaga is the epitome of filth. She’s nothing but a role model for girls and boys with no self-esteem, and she believes everything she does is out of “art”. I am so sick of this Xerox machine exploiting gay issues to win publicity. And it’s her fans as much as it is her. It really is. Her fans are the most universally-despised in the stan world.Lady Gaga is not a musician. She just a commodity just like McD and KFC. It is time for her record company to send her to gay bars around Vegas.
    She is disgusting and exploiting the kids with her Illuminati messages. Time to send her to a dumpster.

    -Yawn-

  22. WHERE ARE THE LIL MONSTERS???????? February 28, 2014

    Oh lil moronsters come out and play.

  23. Sandra February 28, 2014

    Lady Fraudga is a flop and a has-been. She was a flash in the pan 2008-2011 but the novelty then wore off and now, merely 6 years after her debut, she can’t even go platinum with her album. So much for the “new queen of pop”.

  24. JohnVidal February 28, 2014

    F*CK You all… !!!

  25. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    This attention w**** just can’t win. Lol I love it!

    Tell me why Miley Cyrus is 60K from being platinum and Gaga is still gold.

  26. JohnVidal February 28, 2014

    Born This Way 8 m copies…when will your fav?

  27. Do What U Flop February 28, 2014

    Gaga lost 850,000 of her fans that did not buy this album compared to the last album the first week. More then 75% of her fans ignored this new album in the US.

    I like “Born this way” and own the album but this album is….. ARTPOOP

  28. Wendy Willams’ Legacy February 28, 2014

    Monsters are pretending to fall asleep… 😆

  29. Wendy Willams’ Legacy February 28, 2014

    Artpop- file under “Dust Collector” !!!

  30. Cut Your Paws Off February 28, 2014

    If she had any talent, she wouldn’t have to resort to all these ridiculous measure to try to be noticed.

    Not a rocket science…

  31. Rosie February 28, 2014

    Another great article. Enough with the gimmicks. Albums will sell if they are full of great music. Artpop is filled with poop.

  32. cake like lady gaga February 28, 2014

    ^ Who are all these trolls?

    This site has really went to the dogs tbh

  33. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Gurl Gaga bye, a parking lot really? Leave that s*** for Kelly LazyLand, has it come to this that the stages you’re booking are parking lots now? I CANNOT.

  34. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Well shock value doesn’t last, just look at how long it has taken Bangerz to almost reach platinum lol. It’ll be back to 300K Can’t be tamed.

  35. Rosie February 28, 2014

    Lady Gaga- Queen of Basketball arenas…

    😆

  36. Party Pac February 28, 2014

    It is really sad to see how American culture continually exalts the public problems of the mentally ill like Stephanie Germanotta.

  37. Kunty Perry February 28, 2014

    Bey sold 500,000 in about 3 hours today! WOW!!! Bey’s changed the game and she’s got all these girls, Katy, Miley, etc looking over their shoulders. Bey crashed iTunes about 4-5 times today. No one’s ever done that.

    In this order as of today: Bey=500,000, Katy & Miley=250,000 and Gaga was no where near this group today. What does that say about Gaga’s talent? She needs to take a break and just disappear

  38. Ciara’s Teabag February 28, 2014

    What happened to her?

    It’s easy…it’s what happens to all Pop Singers who rely on “schtick” instead of simply writing catchy tunes that people like. Once the “shock value” of being different wears off, you damn well better have something else to back it up, and quite frankly, she doesn’t.

    She’s just a run-of-the-mill pop star. Once her odd-ness became commonplace for her, it’s no longer going to garner the media attention that it used to, so the only thing left to talk about is the music, which to be honest, is just recycled 1990’s era Madonna.

    😀

  39. Ahaks! February 28, 2014

    What is Lady GaGa? Is that like a feminine hygiene spray or something?

  40. Fark It List February 28, 2014

    It is amazing Gaga lasted as long as she did.
    She was a colossal bore. No talent, b*** ugly and her tedious attempts to shock were pathetic.

    😛

  41. Yawn February 28, 2014

    who..who…who????

  42. Just Saying February 28, 2014

    Lady Gaga is an imposter a human tumbler account. All her music, costumes, and Madonna-esque persona come from brilliant artist before her. She doesn’t write her own songs ( look at her credits) she only wrote 2-3. Yeup just 2 but takes credit for them all. She is a flop con artist who shouldn’t be paid for literally copying other people’s work!!! Lil monsters can cry all they want that she doesn’t copy and writes all her albums the only people they fool are 10-19 year olds.

  43. Wendy Williams’ Herb Tea February 28, 2014

    You are doing something quite wrong when you go from having one of the most acclaimed and successful pop records like The Fame Monster was, to something like ARTPOP. This record is highly overproduced and sounds dated, it seems like she has no aim to evolve, she’s stuck with cheap EDM music beats.

    Lady Gaga’s lyrics have never been a highlight, however stupid lyrics can get a pass if the production and execution of the song is good overall. Not the case this time, the only song that can approach these qualifications is Bad Romance. The rest is overproduced, oversung, oversexualized and poorly executed.

    Let’s talk about Gaga’s pretentiousness. Wasn’t this labeled as the new Thriller by someone in her team? Well, someone should hit that guy’s head. The title not only is pretentious also cringeworthy and brainfart. I wonder if this is really what Gaga’s conceive as art mixing with pop culture or she just got lost in the process, as per usual. This is more like Gaga singing about how much she likes to get praised, and talking about meaningless stuff, something she has been doing since record number one. Fame, money, s**, love. How innovative, does she still have something different to offer, besides her obnoxious, ridiculous and desperate costumes? If we take ARTPOP as the answer for this question, is a big NO.

  44. Kim kardashian stan February 28, 2014

    i will buy artpop once they drop the price to 99 cent like the last album.

  45. Wendy Williams’ Herb Tea February 28, 2014

    ARTPOP worldwide sales… 1.2 million copies.

    Tragic !!!

    RIP 🙁

  46. Wendy Williams’ Herb Tea February 28, 2014

    ARTPOP was on sale in the UK for £3.99.. 🙁

  47. Wendy Williams’ Herb Tea February 28, 2014

    Discounted just to stay on charts… 🙁

  48. Sit down February 28, 2014

    Lady Gaga- the real definition of ..white thrash.

  49. JOHNVIDAL February 28, 2014

    Well, the first comments under JOHNVIDAL name are not mine (obviously). It´s also obvious the same person took the time to troll the whole post (as it often happens with a Lady Gaga post) under different names we never saw before in the blog, saying the same things again and again. So f****** sad LOL
    About Gaga: Artpop keeps being a very good album no matter what media or public decides after numbers are out, hell in fact they were waiting for Gaga and they were prepared to make it underperform before it debuted. But it´s ok, it has happened to almost everybody at some point. She will keep showing her talent and that´s all that matters.
    I loved that performance at the AMAs btw! 🙂
    #nowplaying – “Blue” by Beyonce

  50. QUEEN MINAJ♥ February 28, 2014

    It´s easy she is a flop and a joke now. After that meat dress in 2011 I never took her seriously because the only thing she wanted was to shock people 24 hours.

  51. Mileys movement February 28, 2014

    Lmao

  52. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    My fave is going on her 10th year full of platinum albums, top 40s and #1’s. This clown fizzled out in 5 years.

    Britney Spears flopped, but that’s after a 15 years career.
    Janet Jackson flopped after 20 years.
    Beyonce “flopped” after 8, but as we can see, came back hard.

    Bringing up sells from 3 years ago proves the point that she’s a has been. Lol!

  53. Lamb4Life February 28, 2014

    She has peaked during The Fame.
    Sit down and enjoy your retirement. 🙁

  56. K bye February 28, 2014

    The female white version of Kanye West….

  57. SCHEISSE*RETURNS February 28, 2014

    Hunted you all will reach for the biggest hope to get a thumbs up.

    It’s a Doritos concert in a parking lot… They let L.L Cool J and Public Enemy headline years ago, so I’m sure it’s not because Gaga is fading

    You all never seize to amaze me how easily you can count someone out of the game because their latest album didn’t outsell. ARTPOP has one music video and one REAL single that was fully promoted. She even took a break to get her team and work back on track. Y’all will see… Mark my words

  58. ashley February 28, 2014

    Beyonce never flopped. She still sold what Rihanna sells with her #1 songs. She just took a break from commercial music, and made hits on R&B/hiphop radio. Get that correct mark

  59. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    But it took Beyonce 2 years to sell what RIHANNA sells in a couple of months.

  60. SCHEISSE*RETURNS February 28, 2014

    This is so sad…

    She’s irrelevant amd washed because they said the venue couldn’t maintain the crowds she would draw? Can you not read or are you just dumb? There was no SHADE or TEA in this thread at all… This is a concert that Public Enemy headlined… Im sure if Brandy or Ciara asked they would have been approved because they don’t draw big crowd (SHADE)

    It’s sooooo funny how quickly you can count someone out of the game because their album didn’t perform.

    ARTPOP has

    ONE music video
    ONE fully promoted single

    This album is stil in its early stages, especially because a lot of people haven’t heard the music

    Gaga will rise to the occasion…. Mark my words!

  61. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    Gaga and Beyonce’s fans should register at www. Pressed. 0rg and become members of a lifetime…

    😉

    😆

  64. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    Beyonce is a borderline has-been.
    Gaga is a has-been.

    🙁

  65. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    ARTPOP is now in the discounted shelves across America and Europe aka dust collector.

    LOL

  66. ashley February 28, 2014

    wendy williams tea= rihanna fan

  67. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    Cause Run The World is such a r&b song. But I’ll give her props for the other hits.

    Funny they called Rated R a flop, yet it had two top tens and a #1.

  68. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    If I recall all of Beyonce albums are, #1, Platinum, Top 40’s songs and a few #1’s…….She has no flop albums unlike you’re fav who’s first two album floped. Do you not recall? They always find someway to make it about Beyonce’. It’s so much power in her NAME.

    STAY ON TOPIC:

    Gaga girl I don’t know what’s going on with you or you’re camp, but pull it together girl.

  69. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    How is Beyonce a borderline has-been? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha… The irony of it all. She is slaying every pop girl in the game, hell she is slayin everyone in the game right now. So once again how is Beyonce a borderline has-been?

    You people say anything. Please use logic!!!!1

  70. ashley February 28, 2014

    RTW flopped because the song sucked and it wasn’t trendy at the time like EDM. Not because Beyonce was done. Funny that they called 4 a flop but it had no #1 hits or top tens and still sold what rated r did. Rihanna can only make commercial music and sell. Beyonce took a risk with 4 and was still rewarded with a grammy, decent sales, and critically-acclaimed 200+ Million tour.

  71. ashley February 28, 2014

    LoveBird

    Rihanna is a pop artist ONLY. Beyonce is able to sell commercially and get bigger numbers and sell an R&B album with no commercial music and still garner Rihanna’s mediocre sells

  72. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    I think you mean a $200 million dollar stripper show by a mother of 1, glorified prostitute with a mic who married her crack selling pimp.

  73. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Rihanna is a MULTI-GENRE artist, she does anything and makes it work.

    Beyonce needs to thank Rihanna for introducing her to many of the writers and producers she has been using after RIHANNA put them on the map.

    RIHANNA is ALWAYS one step ahead.

  74. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    Umm let’s see, Music Of The Sun had a #2 hit and went gold and sold a million WE and was a first effort. It sold the same as DC first album.

    A Girl Like Me sold 1.3 million and 3 million WW, more than B_Day that came out that same year.

    loud and TTT out sold 4, loud was released 6 moths before 4 and TAT was 6 months after. So I believe it’s Beyonce catching up to Rih. Worldwide sales counts, not everyone a local artist. How Beyonce doing over seas?

  75. ashley February 28, 2014

    You can’t seriously be calling Beyonce a stripper when Rihanna lap dances random fans at her concert like she’s working the pole. NO matter what you say, Beyonce is still a more viable touring act and outgrossed Rihanna with no new album or current hit.

  76. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    But the sad thing about it is 4 sold just as much as TTT, with no #1’s on hotbb100. I will say 4 didn’t sell as much compared to Beyonce’ other albums, but flop it isn’t.

  77. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    ARTPOP has failed to generate #1 song on Billboard Hot 100…just like a lipsyching queen named Beyawnce.

    😆

  78. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Rihanna doesn’t open her legs in front of 25 million viewers AT THE GRAMMY’S like Beyonce who put on a ratchet stripper show with her pimp in front of her very impressionable daughter.

  79. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    4 – 2.8 million
    TTT – 3.3 million

    4 did not sell as much as TTT.

  80. ashley February 28, 2014

    Mark in what world has A girl like me outsell BDay? lol I am seriously crying at your lies. Beyonce has outsold all of Rihanna’s albums in the U.S. and WorldWide with only 5 albums. Rihanna should definitely be ahead in the U.S. with her hit singles. Beyonce doesn’t have to catch up, she’s already slayed Rihanna’s sells without having to release annually. Isn’t that why Rihanna’s releasing two albums this year?

  81. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    Even has-been Christina n child m******* like R Kelly can’t save Artpop from flopping hard…

    Sad right?

  82. ashley February 28, 2014

    4- R&B
    TTT- POP

    There’s no way Rihanna could accomplish that. She would flop.

  83. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Rihanna will always be 2nd to Beyonce. Beyonce overall(u.s and WW)>>>>>>>>Rihanna. ANY QUESTION?

  84. ashley February 28, 2014

    Rihanna has opened her legs in front of millions of viewers at the Billboard awards with Britney Spears. She is a known industry s*** and promotes drugs. Beyonce will always remain more respected. No matter what you try to bring up to distract. lmao

  85. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    My question is why is Beyonce working the strip poll like she’s high on molly?

    Why is she giving Miley a run for her money on who can throw the biggest R rated stripper ratchet nasty disgusting porno on stage?

  86. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    BBMA averages 11 million viewers and is not as respected as the Grammy’s where class is expected.

    Instead Beyonce decided to cheapen the show by opening her legs in front of 25 million viewers (including her daughter)

  87. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    In what world, planet did A girl like me outsell BDAY?

    Like I stated you’re fav first 2 albums FLOPED. Beyonce’ don’t have any flop albums. I gaged at you bringing DC into the mix. At the end of the day Beyonce>>>>>>Rihanna beside #1 singles.

  88. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    Rihanna isn’t American, she’s an international artist. Loud is going on 6 million WW and two in the states while TTT is going on 5 million ww. All those albums and you hive flees call her a single artist, yet her album sales are in rage of your queen roach and passed her with DC sale in record sales.

    I don’t care how you hive roaches deal, but please find a way to, cause Rihannais breaking legends records with 150 million records sold and 13 #1’s. (Mind you, the record is 19 #1’s)

  89. ashley February 28, 2014

    LoveBird you are a Rihanna fan. Judging Beyonce for “stripping” seems very hypocritical coming from you. That is the reason Rihanna is famous. She has always used s** to sell. 11 million vs. 25 million. doesn’t matter. Still a show with a family oriented audience, and the performance was way more raunchier. Your exaggeration is so apparent. Miley is disgusting

  90. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    Funny on iTunes 4 is labeled as a pop album. Fans wanna call it an r&b album cause the only chart it singles could top was the r&b charts. That same chart that the hive made fun of ciara and Keri a year earlier than 4. Remember y’all saying the only chart matter was the hot 100 and top 200. Oh, but now the hot 100 is generic? Flip flop bugs.

  91. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Ashley, I expect you Beyonce fans to call Beyonce out then for her stripper shows since you have mocked and harassed Rihanna about it for years; only to give Beyonce a pat on the back for cheapening herself more than RIHANNA ever has.

    Rihanna has sense to know that the Grammy’s is not the place to open your legs and put on a drunken stripper show with your pimp, why haven’t you hives called Beyonce out for that?

  92. Mark111 February 28, 2014

    Plus i put quotation marks around flopped cause that what people were saying, but i don’t agree. But i don’t expect the hive to read any, seeing how you all dissed MC, T-boz and Ashanti over nothing. How dare you roaches come for ladies that can actually write a song.

  93. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Wait so Beyonce isn’t an international artist, worldwide star….. The irony of it all. They don’t really have anything to shade on so IT clings to Beyonce performances at the Grammy’s. These crack babies are funny.

  94. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Seems as if someone caught in their feelings. The hive will sting anyone who try it. Who is a Mariah, Tboz or anyone else for that matter? Keep it cute and the hive will keep it cute.

  95. ashley February 28, 2014

    4 is labeled as pop because Beyonce is a POPular artist. 4 was still R&B, and was the highest selling R&B labeled album of 2011. The hive always considered it R&B. It didn’t have any trendy microwave pop songs like we found love to push it commercially.
    Rihanna may not be American, but America is where her career began. She is signed to an American label, making America her main market. The navy always try to deflect with WW B.S. when her sales are still average then.
    Beyonce only has 1 album to underpeform. IASF is at 8 million with only 1 #1 and 4 top tens, BDay is at 7 million with 1 #1. More than Loud TTT and UNA since you want to compare pop albums.
    Rihanna’s record sales are not that impressive. She still has more albums and SINGLES than Beyonce. In actual album sales, Beyonce is still ahead. Shows that Beyonce is taken more seriously than Rihanna.
    Beyonce breaks more than silly singles records btw. lmao

  96. ashley February 28, 2014

    T-boz was throwing blatant shade at Beyonce and Rihanna. Only an idiot would dismiss that. At this point it should be known not to come for Beyonce. Her fans will attack, even though I’m not one of those fans. Why all of the name calling?

  97. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Beyonce has an ASCAP Award. What about Rihanna?

  98. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    @ Mark111

    Where did you get your receipt about TTT almost reaching the 5 mill mark WW? That’s interesting, I didn’t know it did better than I thought.

  99. ashley February 28, 2014

    Lovebird Rihanna is a s*** imo. She has carried herself in such a manner. Whether performing, instagram, or the rumors of her industry affairs. Beyonce fans only respond to the hate of Beyonce being called stripper, ghetto p**** popper and other names in the past. So expect for her to be called out when throwing stones at Beyonce. She will always be more respected than Rihanna anyway.

  100. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Ashley

    So essentially what you’re saying is you’ll maintain the double standard? Meaning you’ll harass Rihanna for doing something Beyonce is currently doing and make an excuse for Beyonce right?

  101. ashley February 28, 2014

    Richie a “local” artist couldn’t gross a 200+ Million WW tour, beating out “international” superstars. lmao

  102. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    That B’Day at 7 million is a lie, I want to see a receipt for that.

    As far as I know, B’Day has not sold more than IASF in America nor WW, it’s the hives inflation. B’Day is at 6 million.

  103. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    I just looked up the best selling records of all time. of the 72 albums of over 20 million or more copies, Lady Gaga has not one single record on that list but a few groups have multiple records on the list.

    I currently own 20 of the top 72 records. Among them, adele is on the list, but you claim Lady Gaga has the biggest fan base, where did you get that piece of WRONG information? adele has done what few have, she was number one worldwide. Not even Michael Jackson has ever done that.

    Gaga had better hurry up and start selling records if she ever hopes to crack the top records of all time, call me when she does.

  104. ashley February 28, 2014

    Lovebird

    There are no similarities between Beyonce’s performances and Rihanna’s stage antics. Beyonce is a lot more tame in comparsion to her. The navy is only insecure because Beyonce is finally flaunting more of her sexuality, selling more than Rihanna with ease while still being respected. Beyonce has never spread her legs wide open in the air on stage. She doesn’t pat her genital area. She doesn’t straddle random fans on stage, she’s never been rumored to sleep with several indusrty men, and she’s married. sorry

  105. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    As of September 2013, B’Day had sold over 8 million copies worldwide.[2]

  106. ashley February 28, 2014

    Where is the receipt of TTT selling 5 million. lmao

  107. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    Lady Caca has no nominations for the Grammys.. lol Flopplause was totally ignored

    😆

  108. ashley February 28, 2014

    update your receipts LoveBird. Beyonce sells better without generic useless pop singles. some artist’s popularity depends on their next hit.

  109. Wendy Williams’ Tea February 28, 2014

    The title Gaga the new Queen of Pop is becoming a joke for this delusional pop bubblegum artist.

    🙁

  110. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Ashely don’t waste too much time on IT. I mean look who they stan for, for GOD SAKE!!!!! LOL

  111. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    There’s nothing tame about opening your legs on the Grammy’s, there’s no excuse for that one, #sorrynoysorry

  112. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    There’s nothing tame about opening your legs on the Grammy’s, there’s no excuse for that one, #sorrynotsorry

  113. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Are you using Wikipedia as a receipt for B’Day? I need you to provide another receipt.

  114. ashley February 28, 2014

    I said more tame in comparison to Rihanna’s. That is only the truth, and it shows that you are reaching because you can only constantly use that one performance, which was still classier than rihanna. sorrynotsorry

  115. Lady Gaga February 28, 2014

    One second I’m the Queen of Pop, suddenly Im the new Ciara mix with Ashanti.

    🙁

  116. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Rihanma didn’t open her legs at the Grammy’s, Beyonce did. By that comparison, Rihanna is much more classier than Beyonce because she understands there’s a time and place, the Grammy’s is not the place.

  117. Slayty Perry (9 #1s) February 28, 2014

    Lmao!!! The struggle is real!! Gaga cant even book a parking lot? What type of Keri Hilson/Ciara failure?? Where is Stop the Drama at? The Monsters have been awfully quiet this era. I love the excuses too; lets blame it on the media, blame it on the lack of promo, continue to promise things will get better. Flopga is washed up and done for, deal with it.

  118. Slayty Perry (9 #1s) February 28, 2014

    I love the hypocrisy too. Weren’t Monsters claiming Gags is the biggest star of this generation? The new queen of pop? So now this “icon” needs even more promo to get her music out and heard? She’s the New Queen of Pop, she shouldn’t need promo to sell. How the mighty have fallen 🙁

  119. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Not at all. Please provide receipt that states Bday didn’t sell 8million WW. You have nothing else to talk about beside Beyonce Grammy’s performance. The stuggle is real.

  120. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    The struggle is you providing a Wikipedia receipt for B’Day and making excuses for Beyonce’s recent stripper moves.

  121. ashley February 28, 2014

    please rihanna performed what’s my name at the grammys. check jamie foxx’s reaction. Beyonce is still more respected. sorrynotsorry find a new performance to shade now lmao

  122. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Beyonce Warns Rihanna: “Stop Acting Like a Trashy Entitled W****”

  123. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    Remember back when Rihanna first burst on the scene a few years ago? She clearly was a bundle of talent and looks and she had Jay-Z’s backing all the way. She made it clear pretty early on that she didn’t want to blend in with the crop of female singers of that time and I think we were all excited when she dropped Good Girl Gone Bad because then she seemed more authentic. Rihanna has always been an edgy chick and her music and stage presence should reflect that.

    Somewhere along the way, while her music still sells like crazy, Rihanna has willingly turned into a walking trashbag. I get that she has never claimed to want to be a role model, but was she aiming to be considered a drug addicted, attention seeking w**** instead? Well, that’s exactly what Beyonce is wondering too, according to the July 15th print edition of National Enquirer.

    Bey feels that she herself has worked hard to promote strong female role models and empowerment in women and the Jay’s protege is unraveling what she has worked to accomplish. Ya know, as Bey sings about not objectifying women Rihanna is in Amsterdam shoving a mic in her crotch to get a crowd reaction. Bey has actually had a chat with Rihanna about it and is particularly pissed off about the younger stars’ showing up hours late for her own shows! That in itself is a huge no-no in Beyonce’s book. Many things can slide but being professional isn’t one of them!

    Will Rihanna take Beyonce’s advice or is she going to continue doing exactly as she pleases until the consequences of her carelessness catches up with her

  124. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    The stuggle is you saying it didn’t sell 8 million, but can’t provide proof that it didn’t. You must feel some type of way by Beyonce DIL @grammy’s.

  125. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    So Ashely essentially I remain vindicated, you hives will continue making excuses for Beyonce being a bigger stage s*** than Rihanna ever was and will continue harassing RIHANNA.

    You’re hypocrites, thanks for proving my point.

  126. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    I’m using my phone, of course I cannot provide a receipt at this moment; but everyone knows Wikipedia which you’re using is grossly inaccurate.

    Plus girl, ain’t nobody got time for that novel you wrote.

  127. Sandra February 28, 2014

    @Wendy Williams Tea
    Um what? Michael Jackson has the best selling album of all time, both in the US and worldwide. NOT Adele.

  128. HIMEROS February 28, 2014

    Urgh, I cannot at these Katy Perry fans!

    Lady gaga pretentious? KUNTY perry is 30 and acts like a 12 year old girl who has yet to have her first period!

    Lady gaga is a flop? Hmmm funny, 5 time grammy winner

    Katy perry’s best work? “The one that got away ft. All her grammy nominations”

  129. HIMEROS February 28, 2014

    And gimmicks do work.

    Look at Beyonce being the v***** flasher and miley being a public masterbatOR and Katy the delusional 12 year old.

  130. RICHIE_RICH February 28, 2014

    You just make sure when you get to a pc at you’re local libary, you provide me with receipts showing it didn’t. Ciao

  131. Better yet a navy February 28, 2014

    Talk That Talk’s worldwide sales of more than 4.5 million units and counting (as of early 2012),

  132. Lovebird February 28, 2014

    Not 8 million

    mobile.twitter.com/chartnews/status/203691359826231296?screen_name=chartnews

  133. Lolz February 28, 2014

    Do the Navy forget Rated R happened when they talk about flops tho? How much has that sold to date? Didn’t it have #1s yet 4 already selling in a faster amount of time? If 4 ‘flopped’ then so have almost half of Rihannas discography. Bye.

  134. Valerie February 28, 2014

    Beyonce is the only black female who can go multiplatinum! You Navy b****** can have several. Why is it Rihanna only has 1 multiplatinum album out of her entire discography? FLOP.

  135. BobbysWorld February 28, 2014

    Ya know I remember when Gaga was on the come up , right in the midst of Just Dance and I saw all her Gaga Vision Videos on Youtube and Wow did she move me. For me she was such a breath of Fresh Air . All the faves were just so by the book and dull and she actually spoke like an intellectual about civil rights that is the gay rights movement when Beyonce and Britney and JLo and you name it wouldn’t acknowledge us who have bank rolled them. As a young aspiring artist I respect Gaga for deciding she wanted to show the world who she was and leave and impact and she did. The fact that so many people care to bash her and put effort into dissing her doesn’t make her any less relevant. She will NEVER go away She has a stage presence that is undeniable and anytime she does an award show she stands her own against all thes b******. She’s in discussion to BE THE FIRST ARTIST TO PERFORM IN SPACE. I know people say she pushes the illuminatti agenda but it says they “want to turn people gay” if thats so i can see why some would say she popularizes it within easily inlfuenced minds however She gives visibility to the community that no other artist was willing to do, Britney loves people authors who hate gays , Beyonce is rumored to have really harsh opinions on gays and others say they kissed a girl and liked it for money. Sorry for this rant and any improper grammar in advance(LONG DAY) . But Long live Gaga! Long Live Lana! Cher Madonna all of em. Janelle Monae we see you (only close Lauryn Hill substitute). Gaga is doing her thing i wish Britney was half the performer Gaga is right now and we wouldn’t be having these disastrous shows with 0 live vocals(saw her 3 times on tour and she never sang a note even mimed talking LOL).

  136. ASBEENISH (IS IT ME OR IS U THIRST N****) March 1, 2014

    Britney sold 1.3M first week (without Amazon) and then went on to sell 23M copies of OIDOA. WHEN WILL GAGA

  137. HIMEROS March 1, 2014

    Britney Stans, you can’t use the oidia receipts in this melenia or you guys fall into the same category as Mariah Stans
