Lady Gaga Talks Weight, ARTPOP’s Sales & More In Hollywood

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jun 2015 by David

Lady Gaga has shared fresh thoughts on sales of her latest solo album ‘ARTPOP‘, admitting that she is aware that it didn’t perform as well as her second studio effort ‘The Fame Monster.’

Her thoughts and feelings below…

She bared all at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

On her weight:

“I’m getting a little older and many people think I’m pregnant but I tell them, ‘I’m just almost f–king 30.”


You know, people wrote a lot of things about my last album, ARTPOP, which was very controversial. If it didn’t grab the whole world the way The Fame Monster did, that’s OK, because I know it’s good. That’s what Tony has taught me, that my intuition is right. When he talks about the 66 albums he’s put out, the peaks and valleys, and how it’s not about having a hit record – it’s the most inspiring thing.

Do you agree?

    Regardless of the actually sale amount, the album sold, and each album has a certification. Tbh, I never understood why fans are obsessed with album sales, it’s not like they’re being cut a check. But oh well. More power to Gaga!

    • Regina George June 2, 2015

      No lies detected…

  2. Nap Time June 2, 2015

    “Its not about having a hit record” I guess she’ll be releasing her next album on Tidal then. Saying “Lady Gaga” aloud makes me cringe

  3. DEL BEY June 2, 2015

    The excuses fadga, Artpop was a hot mess of EDM, you believed your fans would just lap up anything you release, but you can’t deny mediocrity, come harder next time or its over for you

    • CherylSoldierr June 2, 2015

      But ultraviolence sis…

      • DEL BEY June 2, 2015

        But Cheryl’s stone cold dead relevance though?

  4. Slayty Perry (KP4 Coming Soon) June 2, 2015

    Lol!! Her hypocrisy never fails to impress me. She isn’t concerned with sales or charts after she flops hard but before she was calling Artflop the album of the millennium. I wonder how hard it must be for a pompous b*tch like her to swallow some humble pie and explain why she’s a flop lmao.

    • Dem Lessers June 2, 2015

      If you weren’t a Katy stan I would’ve up voted.

      • Slayty Perry (KP4 Coming Soon) June 2, 2015

        If you you didn’t stan for Knee I might actually care.

      • tyo June 3, 2015

        oh yeah you probably personally know her hun? next

  5. BeyRihLiyah June 2, 2015

    • Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 2, 2015

      When you realise that rash on your thighs is not normal

      • BeyRihLiyah June 2, 2015

        when you realize you need to drink bleach 🙂

    • Minajesty June 2, 2015

      If Caca is a prostitute then explain what Thotliyah was? Hmm a come bucket? Hopping from one grown mans penis to another during her teen years lol

      • BeyRihLiyah June 2, 2015

        a woman who only been linked to 2 men 🙂 to bad I cant say the same about flopnika everybody knows that ever N*GGA from cash money and young money ran a train on her cement block booty toucan sam looking ass

      • BeyRihLiyah June 2, 2015

        and didn’t nicki’s toucan sam / Pterodactyl looking ass have a abortion ? not only is she a flop hoeeee but she is a murderer and I hope it continues to haunts her for the rest of her life 🙂

  6. Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* June 2, 2015

    Yall are being mean. ArtPOP slayed me when it first came out.

    • DEL BEY June 2, 2015

      The songs were all written messily, the production was over the top and pompous, and her ideas just went a little too over the edge, it was definitley her worst album yet

      • Dem Lessers June 2, 2015

        FartPop was better than Bukaki This Way. Both sh1te albums though.

  7. christinastherealtalent June 2, 2015

    She’s humbled herself and that’s why I’m able to like her now and listen to her music.

  8. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 2, 2015

    If it wasn’t for my dad I probably wouldn’t love her as much as I do. Its so cute how she has strengthened our bond. My dad gave me the name Baby Gaga and it became the one most people call me lol. I love her


    People love to hate on Gaga but she slays Beyoncé and some of these other basic h*** any day.

    • Lol June 2, 2015

      You are one of the most interesting and iconic commenters left on this blog ugh the rest are just kissing each other’s asses it’s so annoying

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 2, 2015

        Awww thank you love. These beytches are too lame and predictable like their faves I guess????

      • RihNavy June 2, 2015

        Not you calling ANYONE an ass-kisser when that’s what you’re doing right now sis. Ch…

      • Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

        Death @ RihNavy!! But its just cosigning itself to feel important. ????

    • DEL BEY June 2, 2015

      what delusion, when Beyonce is still competing with the other girls 17 years into her career, and Gaga seems to have fallen down a pit of irrelevance seeing as though AP still hasn’t scanned plat, I’d like to know how you came to this conclusion. Oh yeah you don’t work with reason, only biased

      • Memo June 2, 2015

        Beyoncé clung to Gaga during her Sasha Fierce era. If not hot, why calling her? Beyoncé is all smoke and mirrors.

  10. Minajesty June 2, 2015

    I’d love to hear a collab with her and Queen Onika I bet it would slay just like the one she did with King Bey

  11. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 2, 2015

    On the other hand life has been hard for me but not failing to find customers on the block like Mark but close to that. I find it very hard to cope. I wonder how I’ll survivealone

  12. LoveBey June 2, 2015

    She is still crazy talented so whenever she decides to put out something else I’ll be here for it. Artpop was a mess though girl, no way around that.

  13. Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

    ????????????She’s finished and the fading crack head whorre is next????????

      • Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

        ???????????? That read is so tired and used up already just like that anaconda dirt hole you call an a***. Find some originality b****, even tho I know that’s hard for you birds with the brain the size of a pea. FOH

    • TheElusiveLamb June 2, 2015

      You got them staking

      • Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

        I know they are so sad. They ran that “hairline” read into the ground. It was a first but now it’s desperation to come for me???????????? I just laugh at these silly h***. Our impact tho???…????????????

  14. LC June 2, 2015

    I’m not a huge Lady Gaga fan or hater so I’ve only heard like 2 songs from Artpop. I think more so than the album being a mess, people were tired of her over the top antics. After the album with Tony Bennett and her performance at the Oscars, all people were saying was “wow, I didn’t know she could actually sing”. Her next album will do well if she continues with this more stripped down approach because she really is super talented. She doesn’t need anymore gimmicks.

  15. MadonnaThaDinosoaur June 2, 2015

    Artpop was a garbage album
    She started making garbage music the moment they gave her freedom

  16. Theman June 2, 2015

    Actually her album just underperformed. It sold 800k, with a top 4 hit. In this climate that is very good. In comparison to her previous one, it wasn’t as successful. But by no means is this woman a flop. Had radio spun all of her singles, her album would have sold a lot more. She’s speaking practically.

  17. Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

    ???????????????? @ this b**** co-signing herself with one of her troll accounts. So obvious. The desperation..Who let it out of it’s cage? Go back into hibernation h**. We don’t miss you!!????????????

  18. Career Ender June 2, 2015

    1.8 mill WW for a megastar…… has been megastar like flopga is an unparalleled floppage in the music continuum

    • Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

      ???????????????? but they called “4” a flop. Smh

      • Mark111 June 2, 2015

        4 was a flop. Deal with it.

      • Slay_Hive June 2, 2015

        4 underperformed. It was not a flop. It is still platinum and has sold more than several of Rihanna’s albums in the U.S. without a #1 single. And death @ “deal with it” ???????????? bitxh how are you dealing with the fact that rihanna’s album won’t be released until next century, when all of her competition is dead???????????

      • Career Ender June 2, 2015

        @Marikos yes 4 was a flop juat like Rlate even before its released (im calling it a flop in advance)
        The suicides were so cocky during the BTW era only for DEADpop and CTC to take her to the bottom of the pol bucket
        I hardly see monsters in tgj .She is done!

    • Haha June 2, 2015

      Receipts that it sold 1.8 million?

      • Career Ender June 2, 2015

        Artpop didn’t do that much mental damage on you,I refuse

  19. Tranet Ghost whisper jackson June 2, 2015

    She’s like generic Polly pocket to the orginial barbie (Madonna) outside of the gimmicks, wigs and coustomes. She’s marginally talented. But, no longevity. Like flopnet kii

  20. Barb-wire June 2, 2015

    You tried it Gaga, talking about how sales don’t matter. Chile, you is lying up your ass just like your pathetic stans who swore they were buying when they clearly weren’t.

    • Haha June 2, 2015

    “You know, people wrote a lot of things about my last album, ARTPOP, which was very controversial. If it didn’t grab the whole world the way The Fame Monster did, that’s OK, because I know it’s good.”
    Yea, that sounds really humble. She’s almost 30 and still speaks like a 12 year old girl. smh

    • CherylSoldierr June 2, 2015

      Rihanna Ts amirite?

  22. Tranet Ghost whisper jackson June 2, 2015

    Miley Cyrus out shinned gaga with her gimmicks in 2013 and she flopped. Just like Beyonce and Madonna ended tranet career kii

  23. Career Ender June 2, 2015

    DEADpop is that sin that will follow this gimmick freak for the rest of her life
    She created it for herself by herself
    I compare that album to puke

      Stripped was her best album. I still listen to it today.

  28. RihNavy June 2, 2015

    Not a certain someone calling someone an asskisser, chile bye. Just because we don’t act like children and can have legitimate conversations in café’s, doesn’t detract from the fact that we ALL still have our own individual opinions. Your statement is completely oxymoronic considering how you were JUST up Slayriah’s asshöle. Keep your ironic ass reads. Anyways, I actually enjoyed Artpop, the campaign was just a mess. I think people are way to involved in sales to see a body of work for what it is, MUSIC…POP, at least she has a good outlook on things. I hate this generation of stans

    I like the place she is at right now. She’s not trying too hard and has nothing to prove because she’s already sold all the albums. Enjoy life Gaga. I have more respect for you when you just live life. That being said, can we have a new album next year?

    Gaga hasn’t had a #1 since 2011 😀 Forever Katy’s lessor.

  34. #TeamTinashe Stan (Tinashe Will Perform Tomorrow On Good Morning America) June 2, 2015

    I honestly feel when Lady Gaga came in 2008 she changed the dynamics of how music videos, artwork covers were being looked at. Just like the 80’s she brought back the importance of Fashion in her music videos. Every artist was wearing basic clothing on their album covers until Lady Gaga changed that and brought some crazy ideas into her work (videos, clothing, and etc).
    Just my opinion, don’t get pressed over it.

    • BeyRihLiyah June 2, 2015

      but tunafish flopquarius album cover is beyond basic and it wasn’t even creative

      • @JanetCIARA_ June 2, 2015


    • Career Ender June 2, 2015

      The day you came for the Queen while you stan for that Zimbabwean decedent was the day your credibility died in my eyes
      You’ve been struggling ever since and had been always getting drag by the c-squad
      And your fav decending faster than the speed of lighting on the charts

  35. GAslickmouf June 2, 2015

    Can anyone or a few ppl tell me y Artpop was a flop besides Album sales!!! That’s all y’all ever talk about is album sales.

    Besides wigs and costumes

    There ten that, I loved Artpop.
    This was the 1st GaGa album I liked, its sad its no loyalty in that business. Fans hop around and hop around use the artist up, then call them a has been or a flop after most of you tramps already have at least one GaGa album.

    Y’all never even bought Madonna s*** like most fans said they would.

    Artpop gave me life and f*** off to anybody that says other wise.

    So wat it didn’t perform well but u fans are trashing her like she killed a few ppl. Bad album OK move on to the next, like y is it a big huge f****** deal anyway???

    Somebody, anybody explain.

    As someone that owns the 4 albums, ARTPOP was better than the fame but not better than the fame monster.

    A lot of the music on ARTPOP was good ie: sexxx dreams, but weren’t radio friendly.

    GUY was cool but I always said it was to gay for commercial radio.the video did slay me though.

    Applause. Was a good choice for lead single, DWUW should of had a video, Gypsy should have ended off the ARTPOP Era.

    Fave songs on ArTPoP
    -jewels and drugs
    -Sexxx Dreams

    • Royalkev June 2, 2015

      I’m not a Gaga fan, but I think a lot of what you’ve stated was pretty fair.
      I thought Applause was a solid first single! I admit it had to grow on me though … ‘Applause’, ‘Sexx Dreams’ & ‘Gypsy’ were obvious singles too! ‘Jewels and Drugs’ would have been hit or miss.
      I agree with the order of your favorite albums by her too: The Fame Monster> ArtPop> The Fame> BTW (this comes last for me).

      • CL is coming | SNSD, 2NE1, Sistar, T-ara, 4Minute, Exo June 2, 2015

        ARTPOP just felt like something was missing. But she isn’t done yet. Her talent will see here through over people like ketty and lama

  38. Rihicon June 2, 2015

    she needs a “stripped” album

  39. Charlieyoncé June 2, 2015

    I love GaGa, but ARTPOP was underwhelming, which is why it underperformed. It was a bit too experimental and slightly risqué. Her comeback better be on point.

  40. Charlieyoncé June 2, 2015

    4 isn’t a flop btw, it sold 1.4 million copies in the U.S alone and approximately 3.7 million copies worldwide, something ARTPOP failed to do, no shade to Lady GaGa. So y’all better walk away.

  41. Rosie June 2, 2015

    Really surprised her “”stans”” aren’t in here yelling “yasss humble queen coming back to SLAYYyy the lessors in 2016!!1”
    For example where is Rima? IT cares more about Lana than its own fave.

    • CL is coming | SNSD, 2NE1, Sistar, T-ara, 4Minute, Exo June 2, 2015

      You and rimma > you and cake
