Weigh In: Will Lady Gaga’s ‘G.U.Y.’ Video Break Miley Cyrus’ VEVO Viewership Records?

Music lovers are still gagging for Gaga and her latest cinematic music video ‘G.U.Y.’

The latest single lifted from her not-so-well received album ‘ARTPOP’, the song and its accompanying visual – not even 24 hours since its premiere – are being received as a long-awaited return to ‘The Fame’ form for the Grammy-winner (i.e. catchy pop, eye-popping high fashion, killer dance moves, and the absence of a socially conscious message).

With news of its premiere in sight, the diva’s faithful fan group began a bid to push the tune to the top of VEVO’s digital history books by encouraging viewers to repeatedly watch the video to ensure it lands as the digital music channel’s “most watched video in a 24 hour period”.

Do you think their petition will succeed?

To accomplish such a feat, Gaga’s video will have to amass a whopping 19.4 million views in the short span of 24 hours as the title’s current holder – Miley Cyrus – shattered viewership records with her 2013 #1 hit ‘Wrecking Ball’.

Swinging right past…umm…herself and previous record-holder ‘We Can’t Stop’, Cyrus’ clocked 19.3 million views at the 24 hour mark after ‘Ball’s drop.  A mere five days later, the video sat at 100 million views and was crowned the first and only video to amass 100 million views in less than a week.

As VEVO’s updating is serially delayed, fans are still hoping that ‘G.U.Y.’ –  sitting at 4 million views as of time reporting – will at least match Miley’s numbers.

Premiering on a weekend doesn’t exactly help its chances, but you tell us:

    It´s impossible because Gaga´s video is 12 minutes long. Plus Milye had just done her breakout gimmick when she released that basic video of hers. It´s obvious. And who cares?
    Gaga slays and certainly slayed with this vieo. The other could never.

    • DIAMONDS March 23, 2014

      You actually don’t have to watch the entire video to get it hits miley can have her ratchet record anyways real queens don’t need them 😉

      • JOHNVIDAL March 24, 2014

        I read somewhere long ago that the videos need to be streamed from start to finish to be counted as view. Not that these absurd Vevo records are important though…

  5. Lana Del Irrelevance March 23, 2014

    Good luck with that. It won’t prove anything….

  6. Micks March 23, 2014

    Even of it does, it won’t help the pitiful era. If the monsters resort to bragging about Youtube videos when their fave cant go platinum, I’ll be kiiing all day.

    • gagaslays March 23, 2014

      Gaga has gone platinum before! And even her “worst ” album is better than your fav’s best album !

  7. Mark111 March 23, 2014

    Hahahaha, your Queen is being compared to Miley? Hahaha, B.Y.E will flop.

  8. Del Bey March 23, 2014

    The video was bearable! but the song still sucks, the whole album is of mediocre pop songs, she should have hired some co-writers, still if manicure and Donatella become the 3rd and 4th single while armed with amazing modern beautiful videos. the era could possibly do some good for her

  9. Girl Under YOLO March 23, 2014

    If the video is really good, you don’t have to beg your fans. Just saying….

  10. BeyHive March 23, 2014

    Sad..and desperate. The world is laughing at them not with them.


  11. Yawn March 23, 2014

    I wont watch,,,,I have better things to do.

  12. Wendy’s Tea March 23, 2014

    😆 …..Monsters are acting like this thrash ARTPOOP is worth promoting.

  13. Marley March 23, 2014

    Clearly, the vomit stunt was a gimmick and Gaga was hoping for more of a large scale backlash to get some attention for this song. She still hasn’t learned the world is over that tactic and can see through her.

    Yes she got backlash but no one cares enough to make it as huge as if Beyoncé or Rihanna were to do it.

    She is barely outselling Miley now. In fact, Miley is currently higher than her on the charts. The struggle that she is now competing with her for VEVO views. The downward spiral.

    • Navy Commander March 23, 2014

      According to Wikipedia and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

  14. Rosie March 23, 2014

    Even if it did it will just prove how the Little Cutters have been spamming VEVO, Youtube, and especially Twitter. At least WB also went #1 on iTunes, G.A.Y. is still outside of the top 200.

    • uhmm March 23, 2014

      It’s hasn’t even dropped as a single completely yet, and has yet to be sent to radio stations..

  15. cake like lady gaga March 23, 2014

    Not falling for this stan war bait, so you f**** can miss me on this post.

    • Rosie March 23, 2014

      Nobody expected you to be here anyways since you’re usually M.I.A. in Fadga posts.

      • Himeros March 24, 2014

        Yes, i’m the b**** rosie waits for now.

  16. room319 March 23, 2014

    I believe the real question/answer is “How much will be spent by the label to buy excessive views?”

    If Interscope forked out dough for only one video (Applause), shelved another (Do What You Want), doubtful.


  17. Micks March 23, 2014

    You’re missing from most of Gags posts anyway. #GHOSTSTAN.

  18. FutureCIARA March 23, 2014

    Theres still nobody rushing to purchase Artflop after this video debut, No matter how many views it gets from the raging spamming Monsters sitting through a 12minute video with half of it being written credits.

  19. Davis March 23, 2014


  20. fartpoop March 23, 2014

    i watched that short yesterday. is that 12 minutes worth something more then her being puked on again?

    i could offer 4 minutes to finally watch that wrecking ball, but… NNAAAHHHH miley.

  21. My Forehead Tho March 23, 2014

    The only thing that video slayed was any decent chance this b**** had at a comeback.

    Those long ass credits at the end, the Rhythm(less) nation inspired dance routines, and the music were the last nails in her coffin. ArtPop is dead. Applaud her efforts though, but this won’t outdo ‘Wrecking Ball.

  22. slay_hive March 23, 2014

    DEATH @ The FLOP monsters having to beg people to watch this video. LOL and no this boring 60 min long video won’t help this flop era

  23. Rosie March 23, 2014

    Also right now Dark Horse is the most viewed video on VEVO today, which basically guarantees it won’t break the record.

  24. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

    Gaga’s album sales Shitt all over Viley’s anyway. Who cares about this irrelevant record but the VILEY Stans?

    • JOHNVIDAL March 24, 2014


  25. NANCY SLAY’S March 23, 2014

    say what yall want about gaga, but her videos always, slays!!

    just because she had a brief freeze after applause, doesnt mean that her career is over, you guys are soo critical on these artist, that its pathetic…i wish it was kinda like in the early 90’s, where, when singers released music, we focused on just their music! were in a day an age, were ignorant people can access the internet via cell phone, and just post the most harshest comments! and u cant blame it on bad parenting, some people just lack common everything!

    • Mal March 25, 2014

      Used to be a fan of Mother Monster but not so much now. At first she was unique and interesting. Music really great and dancey. Now her shenanigans have just gotten old and are obviously for attention which kind of disses her fans. The attention should be on great music, song writing and vocals. She has all of that but has chosen the route of her “performance art” which has become that of a caricature of itself. The best thing she could do right now is scale back, strip down her performance (and I don’t mean in the way she does now if you know what I mean) and let us savor the music. If it is good then none of this other stuff is necessary. And none of the manipulation of the media and fans to get over the top views, etc is necessary. For someone who tries to editorialize about “fame” and the side effects through her music, she sure uses the system she criticizes in my opinion. If she doesn’t reassess her vision as far as her career, she will continue to lose fans and potential fans–imo.

  26. Molly March 23, 2014

    She’s out of ideas. It’s all the same story. Her videos are just the same ol’ crap over and over again. She thinks she’s the master at reinvention, but her entire slew of fast paced “reinventions” are the same theme over and over again. She sucks so bad that she can’t fathom how bad she sucks.

  27. Barb B**** March 23, 2014

    Isn’t Miley outselling Gaga album?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

      In the US… Not worldwide

  28. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

    The G.U.Y video slays tbh. Better than all of those pornographic videos from her contemporaries. Gaga is a very talented woman. She needs to just put ArtPop behind and make a killer comeback though. Can’t stand all those basic ass Beytches topping the singles charts.

    • DIAMONDS March 23, 2014

      Yass spill that tea!

  29. Navy Commander March 23, 2014

    I feel bad for gags

    Whats the difference in WW sales?

  31. Barb B**** March 23, 2014

    their difference*

  32. Navy Commander March 23, 2014

    To little, to late . Sorry gags

    • DIAMONDS March 23, 2014

      She can’t even promote anymore she’s promoted everywhere and people aren’t here for it can’t wait for r8 to slay these h***

  33. Digger hive March 23, 2014


  34. aftermath March 23, 2014

    big video tho. i’d rather not see all that guys hunger after that bunch of work. that sh*t better sells.

    and now i know why wrecking ball looks like that, had to be the job of terry.

  35. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

    Has DIL even outsold Applause yet though? Lol

    • slay_hive March 23, 2014

      DIL outpeaked FLOPpause and BEYONCE is double platinum soon while Gags struggles for platinum.. pitiful

      You think Mariah will be releasing her album in May? or another push back? kii

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

        Thank god for streaming.

        It is Mariah’s album, she releases it when she wants.

      • slay_hive March 23, 2014

        streaming is directly from the GP. It’s what they choose to listen to.

        why are u thanking god for streaming when it isn’t helping your fave? LOL

        She’ll release it when she finds a hit, which will be never 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

        She will release it when she is comfortable. She is an artist and perfectionist. She wants to make something that is great. Nothing rushed.

        I’m not the one thanking god Hun. But if charting was based only on sales and airplay (the way it used to be) DIL would not have gone to #2 and Partition would have never made top twenty. Lol

      • slay_hive March 23, 2014

        Well things are not what they used to be twenty years ago. This is a new age in music. Social networking/streaming plays a major part, and neither sales/streaming/airplay is helping your fave!

        DIL was in the top ten based on sales/airplay as well. It never left the top 15 of the itunes charts sweety. It is also PLATINUM.. Only ONE performance caused that streaming spike. Just imagine if she actually promoted it!

        Lastly MOOriah has been “perfecting” for YEARS now and the best she could do was you’re mine?? LOOOL BYE!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

        I really need to start keeping a count of the amount of times you tell me the date. I have a calendar B*****, I’m well aware of the date.

        I have an assignment to finish and I gotta prepare for school tomorrow so I’ll come back to drag you next weekend. 😉

        *plays Mariah/Britney diamond albums


      • slay_hive March 23, 2014

        LOOOL * hands you back your wig*

        BYE BYE!!

  36. Molly March 23, 2014

    Gaga’s G.U.Y. video will be known as the biggest failed attempt at breaking the VEVO record, poor little monsters scheduled all these “Break The Vevo Record Operation” things only to get 3 million views 18 whole hours after the video was released.

  37. Rosie March 23, 2014

    Gaga’s next move it to commit suicide on stage. Then, her fans will copy her. This means the world will soon be a safer place. Amen.

  38. Nikki March 23, 2014

    Juvenile and desperate. Euww…can’t stand this Lady colossal bore Gaga.

    Gaga clearly can’t hold her own in the director’s chair. Someone from Universal/Interscope and NBC is getting high on meth or cocaine. It’s over the top, tacky (as usual), incoherent, lack of depth, a lot of “noise” and all over the place. Exactly what you’d expect from this clown. Having a 5- minute credit is kind of saying….”look at me…look at me” and “im cool because now i’m a director”.

    Enough already, b%tch. Take a seat !

  39. Navy Commander March 23, 2014

    And her album sold 2.3m copies worldwide, hardly a flop. If I was her I would cater to the European/Asian market as they are the ones buying her album

  40. Digger hive March 23, 2014

    Lies her album has sold 1.7m ww!!!!!!!

  41. Flop Like Lady Caca March 23, 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. In 5 years all she does if f***g moan on the media about Lupus, bullied at school, insomnia, cocaine addiction, hip surgery, weight issues, Bulimia and so on.

    What’s next? Carry RuPaul and R Kelly’s love child? Why don’t we as a community, support the people in the entertainment industry who DESERVE our support rather than throwing out $ to this overrated and “manufactured musician”. I gave her a fair chance in the beginning, but I can’t stand liars, phonies and attention w**** like Lady Gaga. Her name alone makes me wanna puke. Artistic people don’t need to tell the World that they are making art. Idiot…. just like her lil’ Donkeys.

  42. Digger hive March 23, 2014

    Gags is even beneath nicki now kiiiii

    • DIAMONDS March 23, 2014


  43. BeyHive March 23, 2014

    Conclusion: The main problem with Lady GaGa is that she sucks and has always sucked and will always suck.

  44. Navy Commander March 23, 2014

    According to Wikipedia and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry she sold 2.3 ww

  45. LDN Chick March 23, 2014

    I’m sorry but everything she does just seems so forced and pretentious. She’s obsessed with this idea of ‘Art’ so it just doesn’t come across as natural and authentic when you match it against the basic, soulless music she released with this album its obvious she doesn’t even know what she wants. The acclaim or the sales. So far she has not received either. The video was corny and won’t help the era.

  46. BeyHive March 23, 2014

    2.3m shipments not hard sales.
    ARTPOP is a dust collector ….


  47. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 23, 2014

    I’m sure Artpop and Bangerz both sold more than the Re-up so I don’t see why you need such information…

  48. LDN Chick March 23, 2014

    @Navy Commander. That’s based off shipments not sales darling.

  49. slay_hive March 23, 2014

    Since we are using shipment sales. Beyonce is @ 5 million WW. LOL

  50. Revolution March 23, 2014

    Gaga is not at nobodies 2.3 million in SALES. She at 1.7 mill ww, while Miley is at 1.6, Katy is it 2.6 and Beyoncé is at 3.1

  51. RDER Gaga March 23, 2014

    Gaga is a very great artist and don’t care what all you haters have to saY ur just saying that because you hate her right.If you hated katy Perry u would of said a lot of things or if you hated miley Cyrus u would of said a lot of things too. RetarDS

  52. My Forehead Tho March 23, 2014

    ^You know what, I take that back. I honestly think if Gaga leaves that desperate attention seeking s*** to 40+ year old linebacker built b****** who are forced to pose nude in their music videos to get people to look in their direction, she may actually be able to make a decent comeback in 2-3 years.

    But as of now:

    Katy>>>Miley >>IceJJFish>>>Gaga

  53. Netta the great March 23, 2014

    this era has been truly disastrous and embarrassing for ggaga. her pretentious attempts at creating “art” have done absolutely nothing to entice the gp. i personally think her music is crappy and she truly has no sound of her own. she made some cute dance-pop music at the peak of the edm explosion and thats about it. the shock factor expired a very long time ago and people have moved on.

  54. FAF March 23, 2014

    A. It doesn’t matter bc the goal of this song is to get ppl to purchase the album in the US. its been too long for the material to have a serious resurgence bc she took a hiatus in the middle of an era

    B. NO. It only has 6mil views now.. How will it reach 20Mil in 2 more hours?

    C. She should make a shortened, amended video version for vevo and uploaded the movie later, like Monday.

    D. It debuted too late at night to have a major impact. Most people (like myself) were out until the tail-end of the hype died down. U cant premiere a MV 9pm on a friday… like wtf?

  55. Lady Flopcaca March 23, 2014

    She’s out of ideas. It’s all the same story. Her videos are just the same ol’ crap over and over again. She thinks she’s the master at reinvention, but her entire slew of fast paced “reinventions” are the same compiled themes over and over again. She sucks so bad that she can’t fathom how bad she sucks.

  56. Slayty Perry (Birthday is Coming) March 23, 2014

    2.3 million shipped, not sold. That same list has Prism at 2.9 million worldwide but it’s actually around 2.7 million. And dead @ “according to Wikipedia”.

    Pertaining to the topic of the post, no F.L.O.P will not break Miley’s VEVO record or any record for that matter. As Rosie said above, Dark Horse is still #1 on VEVO and Gags is at #2. Those streaming points are her only chance of charting, F.L.O.P is no where to be found on iTunes.

  57. gagaslays March 23, 2014

    and DEATH at the wack BeyHIVE!

  58. Lovebird March 23, 2014

    As much as I would want it to break Miley’s VEVO record because it slayys, the hype for G.U.Y wasn’t as big as Wrecking ball, so no it’ll not break Miley’s record.

    Does it deserve to break Miley’s record? ABSOLUTELY, the video slays.

  59. honeychildplease March 23, 2014

    Don’t feel bad for gaga she will have a comeback..even tho I don’t care fir her really

  60. Lovebird March 23, 2014

    IFPI counts SHIPMENTS, Labels report a SHIPMENT as a sale. Artpop has not sold 2.3 million, it has sold 1.7 million.

  61. SisqoIsKing March 23, 2014

    Where is TRANNY daddy’s #1 hit though!??! I told you her songs are shitty and she will flop..Katy Perry slayed her album, single sales like a bad a** b!itch!! When Rihanna releases she won’t have a leg to stand on..

  62. Lovebird March 23, 2014

    BeyHive seething as usual and Basic Perry still Grammyless.

    March 23, 2014 at 3:34 pm
    It´s impossible because Gaga´s video is 12 minutes long. Plus Milye had just done her breakout gimmick when she released that basic video of hers.

    Gaga has a publicity stunt (vomit) days before release this video, oh i forget you don’t care as long as she has talent.

    • DIAMONDS March 23, 2014


    • JOHNVIDAL March 24, 2014

      Key word: breakout.
      It was Milye´s first big gimmick. From now on nothing will be shocking from her anymore. Mylie was at Gaga´s The Fame stage, only that with poor sales and no talent to offer.
      Drugs are finally having their effect on you. I was giving an explanation of why I think it won´t break the record (retarded record btw), not my general thoughts on Lady Gaga or Milye´s as persons or artists.

    First of all, Miley had an unfair advantage. The “We Can’t Stop” music video was featured on youtube homepage, for like a month. She had to have been advertising. The only reason I watched it was to make it get off my homepage. Logged on to another computer, same thing. WATCH MILEY CYRUS WE CAN’T STOP!

  82. FLOPGA March 26, 2014
