| Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa


Amazing! And well-deserved!

Due to the success of her albums, The Fame, and The Fame Monster - as well as the performance of her various singles on the Billboard Hot 100 singles list - Lady GaGa has been awarded Billboard's top artist of the year only a YEAR after receiving last year's honor as top new artist!

What an unbelievable accomplishment, bb!

    Her greatest flop of the decade isn't going to get her anywhere in 2011.

  2. 2

    You completely left out that KE$HA won TOP NEW ACT OF 2010, also Top Hot 100 Artist of 2010, Top Song with "Tik Tok", Top 2010 Pop Song with "Tik Tok" and Top 2010 Digital Song with "Tik Tok! Why do you hate her so much?

  3. 3

    *Snore* I don't care if I'm the only person who doesn't like Stefani Germonatta (and I'm not, btw), her making a certain amount of money or being popular with masses of people I don't even know really means nothing to me…and why should it? We're drilled with these records artists accomplish or how much a movie grosses but do we see any of the money they get? No. So why should we give a shit?

    She Sucks

    She's AMAZING! suck on THAT Haters y'all make me smile. :)

  7. 7

    Born This Way wont even do half as well as The Fame/Monster so dont get too excited. maybe if she didnt wait so long to put out new material..or maybe if she didnt say it would be the greatest album of the decade it could have been good…but now…you'll get a decent album that was over hyped.

  8. 8

    Must be a shitty award if she won it

  9. 9

    Does she realize that is the most unflattering and tacky outfit she owns?

  10. 10

    AWWW, I see the jealous no life losers who will never amount to anything have already swarmed, ready to attack those who HAVE amounted to something.

    Lady Gaga is only the 7th woman to earn the title of Artist of the Year.

    In 2009 she won Top New Act. And in 2010 she won Artist of the Year. Only one person has ever achieved this feat - Whitney Houson in 1985.

    Guys why does lady gaga say she was "born this way" when in fact if you look at her old pics of her, she looked very normal, cute, she was wearing hollister and abercrombie & fitch in her pics with friends. So it definitely seems she wasn't born this way! Either she was manufactured by her record label or right when she got a record deal she tried to change so she can be unique and sucessful and get peoples attention by wearing halloween costumes.

  12. 12

    Re: Jendah – So? Billboard awards mean squat. Lets see her win 8 or 9 Grammys in one night, or have the best selling album of all time.

    And Born This Way? Born what way? To suck at being yourself so you'll create an image thats a knock off and copy of 6 or 7 other people and look like a freak just to get attention?

  13. 13

    Re: T.j. Germanotta – you make those haters smile too :)

  14. 14

    LOVING all the hater comments. She deserves this award more than anyone. She invests her whole self into her music and you hear it on every track. Go get 'em momma monster! You were born that way!

  15. 15

    Re: Jendah – Thank you! Could not have said it better myself.

  16. 16

    Re: Jendah – if she wasnt as fake as barbie, then people wouldnt judge her so much. but shes just another record label puppet who doesnt have enough talent to back up the hype around her. is she decent sure…but not as great as the world makes her seem

  17. 17

    I think this is my 33rd "Shut the fuck up Mario".

  18. 18

    Re: wwefan01 – Billboard counts album sales, singles sales and concert sales. Lady Gaga sold albums, singles and concert tickets. She is a COMPLETE artist. Who's talking about the Grammy's? But speaking of, she's the most nominated female this year, isn't she?

  19. 19

    If the album didn't do well i'd be so shocked. I think it will be better than The Fame actually. Even IF for some strange reason its not as popular I feel it will be a step up and more mature.

  20. 20

    Lady Gaga has no talent. Her music makes people move. That is all. Ever listen to the lyrics to her songs?! They suck. Try listening to real music, instead of listening to someone who wears plastic and band-aids on her boobs.

    stop hating sooo much!!!!
    what i dont get is if people despise her and absolutely hate her or this blog, why even bother taking the time of your miserable lives and comment spreading your negativity. I.e i hate katy perry, so…1. i dont listen to her music 2. i dont watch her vids 3. i dont look her up online and bash her. 3. ijust IGNORE her.
    Something that gaga has taught me, dont be a miserable fuck and hate on people. If i dont like you, i just fucking ignore you. and thats what she does. She's never trashing anybody.

  23. 23

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Well the world seems to think she's pretty great. She works hard, she writes catchy pop, from what I've read her tour is great, she can sing, she can play the piano beautifully, and she seems very sweet to her fans. Not to mention her videos are epic. Get over yourself and stop being such a biased Christina fan. It's not her fault Christina flopped so hard this year.

  24. 24

    wouhou!!! Lady Gaga ur gr8 keep going we all suport u (maybe not all…)!!!!!

  25. 25

    You retards. If you don't care, or dont like lady gaga then why the hell are you commenting on this? if you didn't care you'd bypass it. If you have enough time to just make negative unhelpful comments on artists accomplishments (artists you dont even like) you need to get a life. Just because you don't like her doesnt mean shes bad. Who do the haters listen to? some drivel i bet… CONGRATULATIONS LADY GAGA! You are an inspiration and my idol. Little monsters 4eva!

  26. 26

    There is actually some wonderfully written opinions on this, especially the one about neglecting Ke$ha, I actually came on Perez to see if he'd mentioned the fact she'd achieved that but no, he mentioned Lady GaGa like she owned this years end of lists. Seriously I respect people's opinions on her, but Perez is just too much, anyone would think she is the ultimate artist, but as people have said here, listen to the lyrics, they may make you move like dancing, but they're not going to move you to tears or anything…Perez is quick to judge people for use of autotune, correct me if I'm wrong, does Lady GaGa not use autotune? Or is her voice really that robotic sounding….Oh I can see I'm working myself into a rant and I shouldn't be. Either way, this site is drowned in Lady GaGa, I know it's his sight but you fail to neglect so much achievement and good music around, for the sake of talking constantly about one artist and you want to be a judge on American Idol/X Factor?…I don't think people would want to here your comments if you're going to be like "well that was nothing compared to GaGa"…"Oh you could definitely tell you were inspired by GaGa"…"I thought you had a GaGa edge to it this evening" and "Personally you need to stop pretending you're Aretha Franklin and try and be more like Lady GaGa"….Please…no!

  27. 27

    Re: e_manthey – You're right, Ke$ha did get nominated for those awards. The reason why she wasn't mentioned on here is because this particular post was about Lady Gaga, not Ke$ha. It is a well known fact that Perez Hilton is a huge Gaga fan. If you wanted Ke$ha news, you should check out a fan site aimed more towards her.

  28. 28

    Re: Norman Bates – Beauty is subjective. What you find ugly, some people find beautiful. And judging someone by their looks is one of the most hurtful things you can do. She is a lovely person, inside and out. You don't have a picture of yourself, so obviously you aren't too confident with your appearances either. So don't put down someone else.

  29. 29

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Have you heard Born This Way? No. None of us have. So don't judge it before hearing it. If you would like to have the opinion that it isn't as good as The Fame or The Fame Monster or that it is not the album of the decade, then that's fine. Gaga, Akon, Elton John, etc. have all heard Born This Way and have all commented on how it is unlike anything else and will blow you away. So let's wait until we've actually listened to it. Assumptions aren't good. Also, I would like to point out that Gaga is far from a 'record label puppet.' She has been wearing crazy outfits etc. before she ever even had a record deal. Even her producer has said that she had such a clear vision of what she wanted and how she was and wouldn't change so he had to let it be.

  30. 30

    Re: JennFrost – Fashion is subjective. I have seen her up close and in this outfit. I thought it looked stunning on her. I didn't find it tacky or unflattering. I loved it! :)

  31. 31

    Re: Jendah – it has nothing to do with being a christina fan at all. i can admit when gaga first came out…i didnt mind her. i have no issue giving credit when its due and yes shes earned some….but when someone gets over exposed like she has been…you notice things. like shes pretty damn fake and her ego's getting out of control.
    and remember….Taylor Swift, Rihanna Ke$ha & Katy all sell,all have catchy pop songs, all work hard and the world seems to love them too….doesnt mean thier great.

  32. 32

    Re: jfkwashot – How her music sounds is an opinion. I for one, find lots of her music meaningful. Her song speechless convinced her dad to get life changing surgery. Her song Brown Eyes is about a love lost. Her entire album The Fame Monster confronts the "Monsters" in her life. The things she is afraid of. Go read about it if you want to see the meaning behind the songs. And have you listened to all three of her albums under the name Lady Gaga and her music as the Stefani Germanotta band? What she writes isn't trash. And at lease she WRITES her own stuff. She doesn't sing what someone hands to her.

  33. 33

    Re: steshimmie – Lady Gaga doesn't use auto tune. Youtube a live performance. She sounds exactly the same live as she does on the record. In fact, she is one of the few artist that sounds even better live. I like that you weren't hating on Gaga and everyone, but Perez Hilton is a Lady Gaga fan. He loves her. She has a huge, extremely dedicated fan base. I suggest that if you want to read about everyone, you should go to an unbiased site. Like perhaps Billboard.com to read about the Billboard Awards. :)

  34. 34

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Serious question… What did she do/say that appeared as though she had a huge ego? I'm just asking because I thought that she seemed more humble than most stars. One reason I love her!

  35. Merab says – reply to this


    I am not gonna be original as many said it before: she´s just gimmicks.
    They worked for her. Good.
    She didn´t win people with some talent.That´s not her case.

    We´ll see if gimmicks will work over and over again. Or if she will come with smth new.
    Normally people are tired of them pretty fast. But who knows? She got potential in "weirdo´s" department.

  36. 36

    Re: TheFameDream – haha thanks for not tearing my post apart! I respect that!

  37. 37

    My thoughts? She has the breasts of a 40 year old woman and is in desperate need of some sort of uplift. I also think she is the most self-centered, annoying, egotistical over-rated gutter slut in the world and I think anyone who thinks she is talented is on drugs.

  38. 38

    Re: jfkwashot – I wouldn't say she doesn't have talent. She can carry a note and she plays piano. But yeah, her music is generic, simple - and just that. And her lyrics are atrocious. I can't take her seriously as an artist. And I also don't like how she dumbed down her standards just to become successful and fit in with other mainstream pop acts. Born This Way? Yeah right..

  39. 39

    She's just a copy cat from Madonna.. why is she being praised again? Just about everyone realizes this… what a joke

  40. 40

    Re: TheFameDream – the moment she said her new album was gunna be the album of the decade…

  41. 41

    Re: TheFameDream – i dont take what akon says about her too seriously seeing as hes one of the people who helped launch her career. and i never said the album wouldnt be as good on her first…i said it wont sell as good.
    as for her outfits…we've all seen the pictures and videos of her earlier stuff..and there nothing like how she is now.

  42. 42

    Maybe you should start up a site just devoted to Lady Gaga, so that the rest of us don't have to read this shit everyday. You're going to lose readers here really quickly if the majority of your posts are about her!

  43. 43

    omg! lady gaga no matter what people say she is RICH! and she is FAMOUS. and obviously people r buying her stuff. her image will be plastered everywhere for years unless u haters find away to turn millions of her fans, good luck. anyway, AAAAAH!!!!! lady gaga!!!!!!!

  44. 44

    Re: TheFameDream – I agree so much.

  45. 45

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – The end story is that Billboard measures airplay, singles sales, album sales and tour sales and picks the Artist of the Year. And LADY GAGA had them all. This is what this blog post is about. Not her clothes, not her past, not her next album, not her arrogance. It's funny that you even mention arrogance since the woman in your dp is notoriously one of the biggest and rudest bitches.

  46. 46

    Re: ForeverWyld – You are just awful and no she doesn't need a lift at least she's natural! I wished I could smack the shallow out of you!

  47. 47

    Re: dtvantrani – Yep at the end of the day that is the truth.

  48. 48

    Her breasts look like uggo flattened chunks of balogna.

  49. 49

    i don't like this lady. next year agian this award? don't forget who's coming back next year;; MISS Britney Spears she is the best

  50. 50

    I feel liiiiiike… her 15 minutes are almost over.

  51. 51

    Re: TheFameDream – The reason why I brought up Ke$ha was because if you go to Billboard.com they announced "Lady Gaga named Billboard's 2010 Top Artist and Ke$ha Billboard's 2010 Top New Act." He just butchered Billboard's original post/report into making it all about Lady Gaga. THe original post from the source was about the BOTH of them! Jesus give the poor girl (ke$ha) the respect she deserves. And if I wanted Lady Gaga news go to a fansite yourself. You are just completely contradicting yourself.

    a complete moron more likely.
    in ten years people like you will look back and roll their eyes over the fact that they ever bought into her pointless act and shitty sound.

  53. 53

    shes done well for herself i hope she thanked perez in her speech

  54. 54

    and no i dont think kesha deserves anything shes basically copied britney when britney was out of action

  55. 55

    Re: the real carmen – Wow talk about a big compliment being compared to Britney Spears! I for one do not see a resemblance of Britney Spears and Ke$ha. They have a complete different style, sound, personality and fan base. That is one comparison I do not see! I really don't think there is honestly anyone like Ke$ha. She is pretty out there and unique… Try again!

  56. 56

    Like her or hate her. Fact is that in no-time she became a true SUPERSTAR like we haven't seen in a loooooong time. The 80's had superstars like Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince and nowadays there are mostly 'fabricated' stars that come from talent shows and turn out to be mostly 1 hit wonders.

    Only Madonna and Gaga are now capable of mass-hysteria ánd awsome records + sales.

    You go GaGa… 2011 will show the non-believers (but then - you don't have to concvince ANYONE anymore !)

  57. 57

    Re: china
    "in ten years people like you will look back and roll their eyes over the fact that they ever bought into her pointless act and shitty sound."
    And in ten years, if your negativity doesn't kill you before then, you'll still be boring and bitter.

  58. 58

    wow kesha had better achievements yet u didnt say a thing! asshole. Billboard awards mean squat anyway.

  59. 59

    Why didn't you mention that 'Bionic' was named album of the year by Billboard?

  60. 60

    Re: TheFameDream – She sounds exactly the same live? You're delusional.

  61. 61

    ok kesha is a britney wanna be … britney is way more famous than kesha copycat will ever be why do u think perez didnt even mention kesha BECAUSE SHES A NOBODY…

  62. 62

    Re: the real carmen – A Seems like I hit a nerve… A nobody? What do you call Ke$ha's "We R Who We R" becoming just the 17th song in history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (Britney hasn't one this). Earlier this year she became the 11th solo female in history to collect at least four Billboard Hot 100 top 10s from a debut album (Britney hasn't done this). Someone who is a "nobody" couldn't accomplish that in ONE YEAR! Now would u? I think she has proven she is here to stay putting out hit after hit… Just putting out the facts.

  63. 63

    Re: the real carmen – Perez didn't mention her because he knows she is a threat to his dear Gaga. He never mentions anyone if he knows they are a threat or if they are doing better than her! Its been proven over and over again!

  64. 64

    To all the GaGa haters:
    when you hate her, why do you take your time to write those stupid comments? And what did she do that you hate her?
    Lady GaGa is an artist, she can sing, she can play piano and she's one of the kindest persons in the music industry!
    Does Madonna talk to her fans? Does she order food for her fans who wait for her concert? NO!
    But Lady GaGa does!
    And yeah it's true, GaGa is not ”herself” but she said that ”Lady GaGa” is a figure which she created.Go to a concert of her and you'll see how she really is!
    she's just ”Lady GaGa” that nobody can attack her. a lot of people do that! It's just to save herself and to not take all those comments too personally!
    She's more true to herself than Madonna.
    Madonna can't accept that she's 50.she wants to be young and acts like a 20 year old girl.
    And have you ever heard from GaGa that ”Born this way” will be the greatest album of the decade, or did you just read it in a magazine? I've never heard it from her.and magazines can tell a lot of shit.
    All that GaGa said is that she thinks ”Born this way” will be better than ”The Fame” and ”The Fame Monster”
    To all haters,haters make her famous ;)
    I also don't like a lot of artists but I don't care ’bout them so I don't take my fuckin' time to write some hater messages.

    That's my opinion.
    GaGa, you're great! ;)

  65. 65

    Re: loerli – You can have your opinion, so why can't everyone else? Yes they may not have the same opinion as you doesn't make them wrong or you wrong. That is the beauty of individuality! Everyone can think for themselves. There is no right or wrong. So there is no need for hate towards one another or writing long defense message telling people not to have their opinions if they aren't the way you think they should be! Let people think the way they want and you think the way you want and leave it alone! People don't have to like her if they don't want to. P.S. go look at zimbio.com and look up pics of Lady Gaga. Every single picture of her leaving a hotel, store, studio, ect. she never stops to talk to anyone in ever picture she is either looking straight ahead or down and gets straight into the car without one autograph or even acknowledging her fans… Now that doesn't seem kind to me!

  66. 66

    "I was a fan of Madonna's so I was pleased to collaborate with her for that reason - not because it would be good for my career."

    Designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, telling The Telegraph that he did not realise how important would be designing the corsets for Madonna's world tour at the time.

    Gaultier also has a smart word about Lady Gaga - saying:
    "I think she's talented and very inpolitically incorrect, which I love. But I also think that she read up on Madonna's life and learnt it like the Bible."

  67. 67

    I see nothing special about this chick other than every day is Halloween for her. Her music is ordinary, sounds like all the rest of the pop bimbos on the radio right now.

  68. 68

    Love you, Gaga - Congratulations! Can't wait for Born This Way and keep ignoring those hate mongers!

  69. 69

    Awards and billboard charts are just smoke and mirrors in the entertainment industry, they're there to make you think entertainers are special. when actually they're no better than you and me.

  72. 72

    Lol. All these hoes. They think that she took "so long" to put out music. It's been a little more than a year, and she passed up 2 songs with VERY high potential, more the alejandro,( DITD + Monster ) to release new stuff. Most artists take about two years. Ima laugh when all of you bitches listen to the album and it's better then the Fame Monster.

    there was an award show where they were naming the nominees and lady gaga wasnt there, when her name was called out, she seemed god-like compared to the other artist. its been a while since ive felt that way.

  76. 76

    Re: ForeverWyld – I love Gaga and am on absolutely no drugs whatsoever. She won me over with talent, also. Listen to her song Captivated. Can you play the piano like that or hit notes like that?

  77. 77

    Re: e_manthey – How did I contradict myself? Perez Hilton IS a fan site. He is a fan of Gaga, not Ke$ha. HIS post was about Gaga. I don't care what Billboard's post was. I agree, that's awesome Ke$ha won that award, but this particular post was about Gaga.

  78. 78

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Not only Akon spoke about her album in a positive light, tons of people did, like Elton John and Boom Kack. Assumptions never lead to anything good. Just wait until the album comes out until you decide to trash talk it. As far as her outfits, she was wearing bras and panties all the time. Which is mainly what she wore before. Disco ball bras, bras with chains, and hot pants. Like I said in an earlier post, she didn't have the millions of dollars to get designers to make the clothes exactly how she wanted.

  79. 79

    Re: I like things that sparkle. – Oh, have you seen her live? Because I have. There was no difference. I don't listen to Top 40 music. I listen to hardcore. Gaga is the only exception I have because I feel like out of everyone, she has the most talent. She writes, sings, plays piano, and helps with production. That's more than any other artist out there. She sounds exactly the same live.

  80. 80

    Re: MadonnaLive – Lady Gaga has admitted to being inspired by many celebrities. One of them being Madonna.

  81. 81

    This is a very big achievement! the last year she was the top new act and now she is the ARTIST OF THE YEAR!, and with Born this way she will be the artist of 2011. Go Gaga! BTW i hope Madonna to release a new album on 2011 love her!
