Bill Werde: “Lady GaGa Needs A Break”


Is Pop star Lady GaGa in need of a vacation?

Well, if former Billboard editor Bill Werde‘s opinion is to be taken as gospel, the answer to that question is simply…yes.

What the Pop tastemaker had to say about the ‘Fashion’ performer during a recent Twitter Q&A session?

Find out below…

When quizzed on his feelings towards the star’s latest attempt to revive interest her new album ‘ARTPOP‘, Werde declared:


Coming after she cut ties with long time manager Troy Carter and came under fire for a ‘vomit-stained’ set at this year’s ‘SXSW‘ festival, Bill’s remarks touched down hours before the release of her latest music video, shot to support new single ‘G.U.Y.’

His take on her single choices?

    20% talent
    40% puke
    40% hot gas.

  3. lovebird March 21, 2014

    I disagree; she needs to recoup, go back into the studio, fire her yes men and start again on a new era.

    At this point I feel she’ll lose even more fans if she takes a break; strike before the iron grows cold.

  4. The Edge of Septic Tank March 21, 2014

    The downfall of Lady Gaga…. RIP

  5. BeachHouseBritney March 21, 2014

    I don’t understand. He JUST said this on Twitter.

  6. BunsMinaj March 21, 2014

    How the f*** do you guys type so fast, homeboy tweeted this a few minutes ago.

  7. S****** Blonde March 21, 2014


  8. BeyBeyKing March 21, 2014

    What kind of fuckery is this? If Billyonce just wrote this how oh how did you have this article up as fast as you did.

  9. Rosie March 21, 2014

    I agree, her career is already on life support, just take a break so she’ll completely fade for good.
    Isn’t G.A.Y. the next single? It’s not even top 1500 on iTunes.

  10. pathetic March 21, 2014

    nothin will help her. If she doesn’t stick to edm, what will help her? Her career was built from edm/gimmicks and It’s dying that way.

  11. Lady Germagornorrhea March 21, 2014

    She needs to retire. Agree.

    All she wants to do is inventing social diseases like Lupus, Bulimia, cocaine addiction, bullying, hip injury for sympathy sales and scam her fans to buy her records. What’s next? Carrying RuPaul’s love child?

    She is the biggest flake and con artist in the history of pop music.

  12. JER March 21, 2014

    But didn’t she just take like a 4 month break? What she NEEDS to do is get that Born To Slay promo type of promo linedT upT b**** and get into!!!!!! Throw it in people’s faces. She NEEDS to stop doing these ridiculous world tours and focus on her career: promoting singles, shooting videos, getting remixes out, performing for television, getting ads on TV, doing a radio tour, get on several magazines. Either do it, or retire. This half assed s*** isn’t cute. Either throw down on the promo or move onto pasture at Las Vegas

    • beysuperior March 21, 2014

      but she’s done the vma’s, good morning america, the today show, the voice, youtube awards, american music awards, constant promo. What else can she do? She’s done more than anyone and is still flopping

  13. Lady Yucky Yucky March 21, 2014

    Gimmicks are drying fast just like her vomit.

  14. beysuperior March 21, 2014

    This t***** can’t catch a break. shade is being thrown her way left to right. lmao. Hopefully she’ll just retire and not commit s******.

  16. Lana Del irRelevant March 21, 2014

    That’s what happens when you are 80% gimmick. It gets old quick. Not a huge loss. This will be Miley, Ciara, Bieber or even Lana and Nicki Minaj in a few years. Oh well…

  17. Wendy Willams’ Tea March 21, 2014

    This is what happens when mediocre NY musicians take the stage. They need shock value in order to make up for how terrible they are musically. Lady Gaga is too self-conscious and serious to be fun, and there are too many half baked ideas thrown together for it to make sense. Her songs with some glossy production, marketing and given titles that the songs themselves don’t live up to. When she 1st started she was kind of interesting. Now she is more delusional tacky, misguided and cheap. Kind of ‘I am cool’ / ‘look at me’ buy my records. I wouldn’t pay a nickel to see her or buy her music.

  18. Rosie March 21, 2014

    And this is the opening act of her tour. Fad couldn’t even get 2NE1 if she wanted a KPop act, she had to get this Wiggles mess. LMAO.

  19. JohnVidal March 21, 2014

    Lady Gaga is a flop con artist/musician 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.

    I have not fallen into that game, for me she is overrated.His talent is of course debatable.

  20. Riri4Ever March 21, 2014

    People who bought or listened her CDs are bloody idiot. Seriously…

    Over rated , over exposed , repetitious, generic & nonsense . Cookie cutter of Cher, Grace Jones, Madonna and Kylie. And getting naked every second day won’t make your music any better. She has never been an artist. Just want to be famous by scamming those children called Monsters. She has always been a product like McD and that’s going to be clearer and clearer her music is a sheer garbage to more and more people as time goes by.

    Yes apart from it being a total flop the songwriting is dreadful and no substance. The lyrics read of a 4th grader. Enough already….just sit down because for now on you will be remembered as Puker Face artist.

  21. Yawnn March 21, 2014

    This PR stunt is really working for Gaga … Vomit … I just checked the top twitter accounts and Gaga had been losing fans for months but since she had been out of the news she was actually getting a very few fans back .. That changed with Vomit as she lost 130k fans this week on Vomit … Great Idea for the Vomit as Gaga is back to losing her fans on Twitter again … Great Job … That worked well …


  22. Molly March 21, 2014

    She just came off a break didn’t she? She needs Jesus tbh.

  23. Kunty Perry March 21, 2014

    Mother Donkey named Gaga is struggling to stay relevant after 5 years.


  24. ARTFLOP March 21, 2014

    Of course Gaga had to do some freaky, cheap and nasty cabaret like this.She knows that her time is up and Lady Gaga’s season is over after her last album Born This Way.

    It’s all about Miley and Katy now. And ARTPOP will be remembered as “an epic flop album of the millennium”. Sad isn’t it?

  25. Rosie March 21, 2014

    Can’t really wait for her next show when Gaga has a Mexican man who ate 100
    burritos drop a huge wet hot fart mess crap from his hairy @ss straight into Gaga’s Italian mouth in front of 1000s of Monsters. Standing- ovation worthy. You think?


  26. Flop With Janet & Mariah March 21, 2014

    Lady GaGa is a female version of Kanye West. This Mother Donkey is addicted to cheap and stupid attention. That’s why. GaGa a pop singer and self-proclaimed “musician” making mediocre pop song (now claiming she is an icon, yeah right!) can only hit several notes and play piano. Big deal. I don’t know what people are intoxicated on while talking about her talents. She is just making pop music for heaven’s sake not some kind of Beethoven or Picasso high art.

  27. Wendy Willams’ Tea March 21, 2014

    Let’s talk about Gaga’s pretentiousness.

    Wasn’t this album 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. Fame, money, s**, love and drugs. How innovative, does she still have something different to offer, besides her obnoxious,ridiculous and desperate look-at-me costumes?

    If we take ARTPUKE as the answer for this question, is a big NO. Please America and Europe…grow up. For those who bought her music, let me suggest this. Go to your kitchen , turn the stove on and lay down !!! 🙁

  28. JOHNVIDAL March 21, 2014

    LOL and the same old comments and users who only appear on Gaga posts to say the same damn thing no matter the topic in hand are here again. Can´t they understand they look pathetic? (well 2 persons wasting their days copying paragraphs and posting them under all these different user names…)

    • Molly March 21, 2014

      Yet you can’t even stay on the topic at hand #Irony

      • JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

        But my comment is needed after 30 comments with the usual hate. I can´t stand such levels of desperate hate. It´s not acceptable. Be nice, I didn´t say anything to you.

  29. Ajanni March 21, 2014

    I’m just happy to see any post besides the delusions of Keyshia Cole.

  30. Davinci March 21, 2014

    Yes, this Bill woman speaks truth teas 100%

  31. Cake Like Lady Gaga March 21, 2014

    ..long long break would be nice for Gaga. I suggest ….coma for 5 years.

  32. Molly March 21, 2014

    Sam why you get rid of the likes and dislikes babe?

    • FutureCIARA March 21, 2014

      I think its just a glitch in their crappy servers… the like/dislike buttons were just here on my browser and then gone the next second and back up…. They need to finish upgrading everything and smooth it out…. the site looks quite raggedy as of now!

      To get rid of all these got damn pop up ads would be ideal!!!

  33. Danny March 21, 2014

    How do I get my fickle gays back? Oh, duh, incorporate The Real Housewives. She has been using y’all for five years now, open your damn eyes.

  34. FAF March 21, 2014

    She was on break all of 2012 and the beginning of 2013

    @germanotta umm lupus is a very serious disease hun she maybe faking but there’s nothing social about it tbh chunks of hair fall and women become bed ridden and their immune system shuts down

    And girl what gimmicks does ci employ ?

  35. Ryan March 21, 2014

    I am only here for RHOBH tbh.

  36. Stephy Tha Lambily March 21, 2014

    Take All Of Me, I Just Wanna Be The Whoree You Like

    Kinda Whoree You Like, Is Right Here In Me…

  37. Moronster March 21, 2014

    Monters are hoping Gaga’s will break a 24-hr new record for G.U.Y on VEVO tomorrow !!!!!

    😆 Desperate …..

  38. Koko March 21, 2014

    GUY the “new” single will flop.
    The only thing Monsters could do is…clicking the repeat button on YouTube 100 times a day.

    Sad and embarrassing.

  39. Bill March 21, 2014

    Only here for the 18 seconds of “S** Dreams” that is the chorus.

  40. Stephy Tha Lambily March 21, 2014

    Madonna: 1982 (10,000,000+)
    Like A Virgin: 1984 (21,000,000+)
    True Blue: 1986 (25,000,000+)
    Like A Prayer: 1988 (16,000,000+)
    The Immaculate Collection: 1990 (30,000,000+)

    LOL Madonna’s first 5 projects were not only commercially successful but artistically genius!

    Cant say the same about Gaga since she is already staring to fade away with just her 3rd album sales wise & artistically wise hahahah


    • JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

      Madonna is great, but her first 5 albums weren´t artistically genious. The first great thing she did was Like a Prayer album, not her first, and then a couple more, which are the ones who most of the world will always asociate with Madonna. But her true artistic growth came with Ray of Light in 1998 and what came after that. No critic took her seriously till then. You people forget everything so easily. Or just don´t know a damn thing. Gaga has a few songs on her two first albums which are better than Madonna´s songs in her first two albums (not to mention she can sing and is a real songwriter).

  41. Kreyanda March 21, 2014

    Gags will need life support when the Spice Girls/Daft Punk/Jay Z comes out Monday.

  42. Rosie March 21, 2014

    I thought it was jut me with the lack of likes/dislikes. So we get direct replies back and lose something else. Win one, lose one.

    • Molly March 21, 2014

      That shitt is so wack like can’t we have both like before? #Sigh

      • Stephy Tha Lambily March 21, 2014

        F*** You Rosie!!

        @Molly, yeas gurl this website is TACKY!!

      • FutureCIARA March 21, 2014



        And I agree, TGJ needs to get their shitt to+gether

  43. Werk It March 21, 2014

    she should change her stupid name too… 🙁

  44. LOL March 21, 2014

    GUY is the wrong choice….Wish Monsters good luck. Get ready for the blacklash…

  45. RIP Monsters March 21, 2014

    GUY——->(Flop) Do What U Want (Flop)———> Applause—-> Top 5

  46. Yaaaasssss!!!!!!!!! March 21, 2014

    Waiting for the meltdown on Twitter next week as G.U.Y will flop harder than DWUW.


  47. Molly March 21, 2014

    @Stephy honestly can’t take them tittys in yo avi

  48. Gene March 21, 2014

    Agree, I am tired of all these gimmicks, manly, her stans are over it and ARTPOP was a flop, I only like DWUW, and that should of been a her first single. I agree with him. people are over her.

    • JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

      What gimmick was reported in this post? LOL TROLL

  50. Navy nick March 21, 2014

    Shes fine, it is what it is; shes really talented, idk what happened with this album, it is good, but i say just come with a hot video, and see what happens. Not a break tho!!!

  51. Theman March 21, 2014

    Also just because one album doesn’t do what another one did, doesn’t mean that it’s a flop.. Beyonce hasn’t topped her first albums sales.. But she’s still successful.. As soon as someone doesn’t sale as well people start that flop crap.. Quit it with the Wikipedia crap to lol..

    • JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

      These people are desperate. I love how you keep being one of the few sane visitors.

  52. HiEverybody March 21, 2014

    Lady gaga still better than floponcé, buyer of the grammy.

  53. Mark111 March 21, 2014

    Her career will die if she takes a break now. It’s really a lose lose. She’s done, the world moved on, her gimmicks are so 2010, it was a nice run tho.

    Waits for Rihanna’s new album.

  54. DIAMONDS March 21, 2014

    Her career is over tbh no one is here for her tired ass gimmicks she either needs to do throwback The Fame music or completely change her music and image because her tour will flop and she will cancel it like Born This Way

  55. IStanForYourFav March 21, 2014

    While every artist gets old and people get tired of their gimmicks, Gaga has taken that to another entire level. The vomit thing made her lose me as a fan. The only way G.U.Y. Will do well is, if some Monsters stream tf out the video, Payola, and Billboard cheats to put it at number one. Or else, it will flop. A break is wise. Take two years off msx. It will need to be her best work; that means strip some of the EDM, strip at least 50% of the gimmicks, and come back full force dancing and singing better than she did before. Or else RIP Lady Gaga. It was fun while it lasted.

  56. Bow Down B****** March 21, 2014

    LMAO, not the spongebob tease –flatline–

  57. FutureCIARA March 22, 2014

    Girl…… I have never even heard her new single GUY and I actually have the damn album…..

    This is once again, another bad decision! She is doomed…

    The single should have been DONATELLA, and she should have made Versace pay for the promo ads and music video.

  58. Bri Bri March 22, 2014

    Lady Gag Me Needs To Take Her Space Trip To Mars and Stay There For Eternity! She’s DONE! Once Rihanna’s New Album Drops That Will Be The Flatline To Her Career, and When Madonna and Avicii Hit The Scene Lady Gag Me Will Be In Need Of An Autopsy! Die B****! Ur Gimmicks Suck! That’s What Happens When U Think Ur S*** Doesn’t Stink!!! Well Guess What Gaga….. Ur S*** Reeks Of Fowl Odor!!!!! Bye Basic Wannabe B****!!!

    Madonna Rules! Nobody Can Compete To The Queen! Instead Of Her Hating On Madonna, She Should Have Humbled Herself, and Perhaps Learned More Of The Business From The Only Artist That Has Kept Their Career On Top Over 30 Years! Lesson To Be Learned Here….. Madonna Works Her Ass Off… Gaga Just Wanted To Take Shortcuts!

  59. Himeros March 22, 2014

    Are the hogriah fans coming? Shut up? nothing will flop harder than mariah’s waist line just like her last single “you’re mine” did.

    The gp seems to be getting into her again.

    Rosie please.
    I’d take gimmicks over watching lana be depressed infront of the camera in every video.

    Shouldn’t you be on a lana post?

    Your reach isn’t viable.

    It’s only the kuntyCats that have a reason to come for gaga’s iconic blonde bangs

    • JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

      Be nice, Mariah is a legend who has done it all and I am a Mariah Carey fan since always and I support Gaga too. Don´t mix things please.

    • Rosie March 22, 2014

      So you just admitted that you stan for gimmicks instead of art?
      “The gp seems to be getting into her again.”
      If charting in the 150s of the Billboard 200 after less than 20 weeks is the GP getting back into her again, I guess so.

  60. JOHNVIDAL March 22, 2014

    It´s hilarious seeing people trying to give advise. It´s like when Sam does it or makes predictions and then he´s always wrong. “Donatella” wouldn´t have been a good single. Some of you may like the song, but it´s not for radio. Not many songs on Artpop are (even if they are good), that´s the problem. G.U.Y. is not among the best on the album, but it´s among the most commercial ones. As the true artist she is Gaga had an album in mind, not singles, so when all was done, there were no clear singles to be released, and she was needing a hit for this era, it was time. It didn´t happen except for Applause strong top10 chart journey (but still no big hit enough) so the whole thing didn´t go too well.
    But people need to move on and let these girls be.
    Also, I didn´t see any Gaga fan saying GUY will be a hit on here… on the other hand I saw several haters trying to make it seem like some people are expecting it to be a hit, so they can use it next week after GUY doesn´t become a hit. Desperate.

  61. allgood March 22, 2014

    i’d not send her on a break. but she doing alot sh*t too far of taste. because the music sucks. news don’t help. and guy doesn’t fit with me too. do i need to listen to artpop to say what sounds radio? i could do that.
