Not even the VoR kiss of doom can resuscitate this bitch.
Don't forget all the promo of the soccer moms crashing their cars when they heard about the release!
Talk about TRIAL BY VOX
Already #1 in the UK and 51 other countries.
a couple more listens and it's still shit. how unfortunate the instrumental bit that was on loop on the site was actually the best thing about it.
what confuses me most is why this is the lead single... it's not a great pop song, the production isn't really original, the message is album track at best. besides its list of collaborators does this song actually have anything going for it?
I know sales are low at the moment, but I'm surprised that she's got to number one on iTunes just five hours in. The best Applause could do was #2 with 70% of the #1's sales after 16 hours, and if anything you'd think her fanbase was smaller now.
You can top the sales chart on around 20,000 a week now. She probably only needed 2-3,000 little monsters hitting Buy Now at most.
It's not clicking for me either.
It's actually getting WORSE with each listen.
The things I like:
The things I hate:
The vocals (WTF is that all about)
The chorus (WEAK as PISS)
The keychange (THE worst keychange I have EVER heard. And when *I* hate a keychange you know something is wrong)
TRULY fucking ABYSMAL. Sure, this has done well due to the Monsters, but I can't see this having lasting appeal, BY FAR her weakest lead single ever. I wasn't even a huge fan of Applause but that sounds like a fucking MASTERPIECE next to this shower of SHIT.
I think this is better than Applause but to be honest THAT AIN'T SAYING MUCH
Obviously going to #1 on iTunes is only a good thing, but it's going to mean fuck all unless she has staying power. Even more so because I imagine streaming will fuck her over.
I mean even that runt from The Wanted sails into the Top 5 on iTunes initially, doesn't he?
I didn't like Applause when I first heard it, so this might not mean a thing:
Lead single rank:
02. Just Dance
03. Bad Romance
04. Born This Way
05. Perfect Illusion
And Halli had the affront to call me cracked out this morning!
01. Bad Romance
02. Born This Way
03. Just Dance
04. Perfect Illusion
Very poor responses all round then! This won't stay at the top for long. Buzz single!
The hyperbole on the first page of this thread is hilarious.
When will we get the second song do you reckon?
Couple of weeks max.
We'll have 6 months of build up to the video first - which will then turn out to be entirely underwhelming
I've just seen the rough footage to the abandoned "Do What U Want" video for the first time (late to the party, I know). What on earth was she thinking?!
After a few more listens I like it quite a lot, but it really doesn't sound anywhere near strong enough for her big comeback song.
Also, the very beginning reminds me of the Pokemon theme tune.
How rude! My list is better than yours.
I felt the same way when Halli was so rude this morning!
Your list is lovely of course, despite it being incorrect.
Will it take that long? I thought it was ready.
She never gets them out in time for some reason. Endless behind the scenes FAFFING is presumably to blame.
Oh Lord. I hope not. I might even get to like the song if the video is punchy enough.
I really do like it, but wish it was a BUZZ TRACK for a PROPER EARTH SHATTERING SINGLE
Born This Way
Gaga DROVE me into self-hatred.
I wonder if Single 2 will be another JUDAS
Bradley Cooper to recast A Star Is Born after this SNAFU
Born This Way
Not a single 10. Even the loons think it's shit.
I was expecting a banger not a dirge
Maybe it's a grower
Tramell will be along once they loosen the straps, I'm sure
NPIR: But I just found out an intern at work has a BORN THIS WAY tattoo. I've never seen one in the flesh but HONESTLY!!! Lemme ask his LOON opinion.
I wonder how many teens of the 80s are walking around with regrettable Electric Youth tattoos?
The best one's that porn queen who has it blazened across his upper back while playing roles where his character's notionally meant to be straight
NOF but he's not alone.
The artpop one is surprisingly tasteful, whereas The Fame Monster one couldn't even commit to the official font. What a rubbish gay.
