    Umm, I'm thinking hellz no. One word = BRITNEY.

  2. 2

    Big No One Word= Britney

  3. 3

    Oh take a hike. GaGa FTW!!!

  4. 4

    Why in the WORLD do you call Gaga your "wifey"??? a) she probably hates you. b) No, you were NOT responsible for her rise to fame. I read your site constantly, but honestly, you are a TOTAL hanger-on. I.e. coat-tail rider. Celebs don't LIKE you perez. They just use you for publicity. Don't think they're your friends. Or wifey-ies.

  9. 9

    GaGa who 2011 is going to be britney's year fat boy.

  17. 17

    I hate Gaga and Britney. Both of them are fake bitches. Their music is soulless crap. And neither one of them is a real blonde. They're trashy ho's. Whatever happened to the REAL female musicians like Chrissy Hynde and Aimee Mann? Even Christina Aguilera's music is a lot more inspired than either Britney or Gaga. She's the best female vocalist in her 20's.

  18. 18

    When Gaga's career starts to flop, Perez is gonna lose interest in her the same way he did with Xtina and JLo. After Britney flattens Gaga, Perez will be calling Brit his new "wifey."

  19. 19

    You have to take into consideration the length of time these albums have been selling for. Take That's was nearly released and they're a British band so they would've been much higher on the list if they had released their new album earlier on in the year. Same goes for Taylor Swift who's album has sold amazingly well in the short time period it's been sold in. The real winners are the ones who made it on that list in the short amount of time.

  20. 20

    So happy about this. Yes for Gaga and all of us Little Monsters. What a great way to end the year. You know that Born This Way will be insanely good too.

  21. 21

    I' no horny teenage girl, that being said I give who ever is behind Justin Bieber a hardcore High5! My worlds was release Nov/26/2010 yet has already sold 5.6 mil, WOW!!! Now that is amazing! I will NEVER listen to that "music" bcuz I'm sure it is a piece of shit, but good job for the ppl making money off that punk!

  22. 22

    on a side note how shameful for the ppl under Bieber. lol thats gotta suck!

  23. 23

    Re: FearlessLi – Bieber & Boyle! lol

  24. 24

    Congrats to Boyle hers was released just this Novenber! Good Job Su!

  25. 25

    go girl but makes some less eurodance 90's music. we need more artistic music from you!

  26. 26

    Out of all of these ppl honesty I hope LGaga can pull it off again!
    we all kno Biebes will fade thank Gosh, Em prolly wont release another for awhile, SuBo is great tho! SwiftTrash needs to go away! and yeah! peace

    Re: MJJ

    No he hasn't. His album has only sold 700k worldwide.

    And Perez's list is bullshit. Mediatraffic isn't a reliable chart and album company. It's not like soundscan/riaa or the ifpi

    if you wanna say something say it to my face girl, yes nicky hilton where in the world is carmen snatiago next time? hmm?

  40. 40

    It's all downhill from here…

  41. 41

    perez IS responsible for her fame u can think what u want she had the talent but was a boring no name girl geek perez dragged her to fame by his constant adulation and also then he hung on for dear life not the other way around … he pasted her stuff religiously daily until it had something to post he downed her competition until her album bombed hes stopped that now thankfully. the woman is a hard worker but when she whined about someone copying her meat dress when really it was a joke or basically has no personality .. perez is the one painting her as a good person shes basically not a charmer but more a whiner .. perez has a fantastic personality she should be grateful he wants to be friends with her not the other way around

  42. 42

    AND I WANT TO ADD FOR THE HATERS that perez has over 6 million hits a day on his website … think about that 6 million A DAY!!!!!!! u wonder why celebs suck up… thats why..i remember when noone even knew what gaga was or the dull brown hair girl with the glasses sitting at the piano..
    yes she has talent yes she works her butt out and deserves it .. but dont say perez had nothing to do with it he had everything to do with it.. EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!

  43. 43

    i believe gaga will get this honor again for BORN THIS WAY!!!!

  44. 44

    I love Mother Monster. And yall need to stop hatin'. I mean i luv Britney but Lady gaga was the one of the ppl who was writing her songs on her circus album.

    Re: MelissaGirl – ORLY? You must be psychic! ESPN, yes?

  47. 47

    So, in Perez world that means she sold 40 billion records. Hmmmm.

  48. 48

    I am not a Lady Gaga fan by any means (those people are fucking scary), but I really think her next album will go double platinum the first day. They gay boys and their fat wallets love her, and as long as she keeps catering to them, they will support everything she does. She could decapitate a kitten, call it art, say she did it for "The Gays", and they will eat it up.

    BTW,I really hate that term. I'm a lesbian and I really hate how she talks about us like we are helpless, lost souls who need her and her plastic dress and Gonzo nose to speak for us. She didn't give a fuck about us when she was an East Village by way of Upper East Side cokehead stripper…

    Re: waxxfashion – No you face it britney is an ICON gagme is a newbie theres no comparison.

  50. 50

    Britney vs. Gaga? Music really is dead

  51. 51

    Re: DaRockz – Well it is, so props to Gagalupe as well.

  52. 52

    Re: oscarrr – To date, Circus has sold 3.5 million copies worldwide; it was released over two years ago. If you don't believe me, check Wikipedia's article for Circus. How does it feel that Gaga's album, which was just an EP and not even a full-length album, outsold both of Britney Spears' last two albums by nearly a 100% in sales? Let's not even get started on The Fame's sales, which is estimated to be between 12-14 million copies worldwide. Seriously, Britney is DONE. No1curr.

  53. 53

    Re: iamamiwhoami – Well said. I was waiting for someone to come out with the facts.

  54. 54

    :D lmao…struck a nerve? hahaha funny shit, like what the hell, why does it matter to you so much what i think?….so what if i think britney is not as good…its MY opinion…get over it! peace and goodwill to all…and all that crap :D and yeah GAGA freakin ROCKS!!!

  55. 55

    Like people have said 2011 belongs to Britney bitches !!! Britney can dance circles around Gaga, and has a beautiful voice, might not have a strong voice, but she has a beautiful voice, also she doesn't need to dress like a lunatic for her album to reach the top.Born this way ? we already know Gaga was born fugly, theres no need to put out an album about it.

  56. 56

    I'm thinking numbers 4 and 5 are way more impressive since country music doesn't span the globe the way recycled first albums with some added tracks do.

    4. Lady Antebellum – Need You Now – 3.6 million copies
    5. Taylor Swift – Speak Now – 3.5 million copies

    I don't really care for either 4 or 5, but only about 2 million fewer copies sold with the primary target audience being in the US is way more impressive.

  57. 57

    Re: blahblah12 – I wouldn't necessarily call walking back & forth on stage, dancing.

  58. 58

    Re: MadonnaIive – Wtf does Gaga do ?? she's always hung over, she cant dance for shit. 2011 is Britneys year hun, like it or not.Britney has been around more than 10 years,so theres no arguement here.When Britney first came out it was something fresh, and exciting, when Gaga first came out it was same old shit. She can take David Bowies Lighting Bolt and her Grace Jones/Madonna recycled outfits and stick em up her bony coked up ass.

  59. 59

    are u kiding?she only sold 5.8 million copies world wide? even madonnas hard candy sold more. and madonnas confessions on a dance floor sold more than 15 million.gaga is even more lame than i thought.poor lady next year she will be fucked.
    lolol sooooo lame.well even taylor swift sold more in a week

  60. 60

    Re: blahblah12 – Britney can't dance anymore. Face it, she's a terrible performer, clinically insane, has aged horribly, and can't sing or carry out a tune to save her life. She's still able to turn out fairly decent, catchy pop songs given she's working with the right producers, but in a world that's already being dominated by Ke$ha and Katy Perry, she's up against some tough competition in her field. Britney was an artist who was mostly known for her image and performances; not her music. Besides Baby One More Time and Oops!…I Did It Again and Toxic, she really hasn't released any timeless, memorable hits. And now that she's lost the x-factor she once had, she'll slowly fade away into obscurity and will just be known as "that pop star who went crazy for awhile." While she could put on a decent concert 10 years ago, her idea of performing nowadays is just waddling around onstage, dancing embarrassingly. Besides having a somewhat loyal fanbase, she really has nothing going for her. With that said, Gaga will undoubtedly dominate 2011.

  61. 61

    Re: MadonnaIive – gaga sucks shes so lame. and more 5 million copies is nothinglol and she release already 2 albums. shes the lame shit ever. ahaha even amdonna confessions sold more than 15 million and at least madonna tours sold out with big crowd.gaga not. so lame. say bye bye gaga. there s noone so lame as her. and more she is fake she copies other artists,i cant see originality in there. LAME EVEBN HR MEAT DRESS WAS COPIED

  62. 62

    Re: iamamiwhoami – Sorry but people who have been around for a decade and who have been part of pop culture like Britney has can never be forgotten.Also are you saying that Katy Perry ,Ke$ha are competition for Britney ? Britney was here before them and im sure she'll be around much after them.But what kind of world do you fucking live in where you think Ke$ha and Katy Perry are dominating it ?? They are not world wide popstars .We'll hear about Lady Gaga a couple years from now ,im sure, like "remember that meat wearing idiot , whatever happened to her"? .Oh and yeah Britney has a loyal fanbase, im sure every popular artist is successful because of their fans so what ?.Lady Gaga is ugly ,has an old womans body, she has no stage presence.People are getting tired of her ,saying she is overexposed,not a good thing for her because do you know what that means ??? people are getting bored of her,and her attentions seeking unoriginal outfits,which is bad news for her since that is all she had going for her.Poor Gaga.

  63. 63

    Re: blahblah12 – Yes, Katy perry and Ke$ha are Britney's main competitors right now; they're both within the same genre of electro-pop/dance-pop/synthesized-pop as Britney AND both Katy and Ke$ha chart better than Britney has over the last few years. Both Katy and Ke$ha's albums are selling better than Circus has, and almost every song they release goes #1, AND they've only been out for a fraction of the time. Britney scored a decent hit with Womanizer but everything else she released off Circus flopped miserably. She just doesn't have any passion within her music anymore. She and her music are sad, and while she's still moderately successful, she's nowhere near as successful anymore as she once was, and certainly doesn't have anything on the newcomers in terms of sales, especially Gaga, who's the on top of the music industry right now. I think Britney's newest album will do okay, her die-hard fans will purchase the album, and she might turn out a minor hit, but it will ultimately be overshadowed by Born This Way. Right now, Gaga is what Britney once was, and Britney's just a shadow of her former self. I hate to say it, but she's just a has-been, no matter how delusional you stans are about her. Like it or not, she's just not as great as you'd like to think she is. Sorry, but Lady Gaga has slayed Britney Spears.

  64. 64

    yay! i love mommy monster! cant wait for Born This Way!!

  65. 65

    Re: the real carmen – Wow. You're a complete idiot.
    Gaga was created by her RECORD COMPANY - not Perez
    Perez is NOT a good person.
    And I don't care how many hits a day he gets, that doesn't change the fact that he's a bad human being. REAL celebrities don't need his support, which is why he can only get interviews with people like Michael Lohan and Cher Lloyd. The heavy hitters like Mariah and Britney don't need him.

  66. 66

    Whenever I read comparison of Gaga to Britney and other artists that have been around longer and I listen to Gaga fans say how she's better because she is number one and everything I can't help but wonder where is their common sense. I mean in the past whenever a mega star (Madonna, Britney, Michael, JLo) breaks out he is always on top of everything, number one in many lists, creates fashion styles, etc. But being on top ALWAYS stops. And that has nothing to do with the value of an artist. It's just how things work. What matters is what happens after that initial success. I find it stupid to compare a star when he is on his breakout phase (Gaga) and an established mega star after many years of career (Britney). It is fair and logical to compare Gaga's success to Britney's first years (and sorry but Britney wins that one) but saying Gaga is better because Britney after ten years sells less doesn't make any sense. If we follow Gaga fans' arguments then Madonna is a loser compared to Gaga… That being said in my opinion the true success is when an artist remains relevant and successful (not necessarily no 1) even after his breakout phase. After he is the "fresh new meat". That's why I bow to Madonna and Britney. And that's why I would wait a few years before I start saying all these big words for Gaga.

  67. 67

    And as for what iamamiwhoami says I would like to point a few more things out. No one cares about Britney and Kesha and Katy dominate pop world???? Well Forbes magazine calculating a few more factors of success put Britney on number 3 spot of the most powerful musicians in the world list and number 6 on the most powerful celebrities. Where was Kesha on that list??? And something else:

    Britney aged horribly: Gaga looked horrible since she was a child and still remains as ugly as ever
    Britney is crazy: I suppose a person who wears a bra to go for a coffee and crazy hills to go to the airport (while stumbling every now and then) is your idea of sanity???
    Britney is a terrible performer: at least she stays on her two feet most of the time!

  68. 68

    Re: MCiccone
    "are u kiding?she only sold 5.8 million copies world wide?"
    Learn to intrepret information that's given to you. The article does not state her album ONLY sold 5.8 million. It states it sold 5.8 million in the year of 2010 alone. That's not total sales, dear, and no, Madonna's HARD CANDY did not sell more than THE FAME. And if you're saying 5 million is stupid, then you're delusional.

  69. 69

    Re: iamamiwhoami – Gaga has slayed Britney ?? lets see Britney Spears has been around for more than 10 years, Gaga has been around since 08 .You know how delusional you fucking sound ? its like if a Britney fan was to say when she first came out "Britney is slaying Madonna because her album is number 1 and Madonna is getting older now" it just does not make sense. Born this way will probably do good, but once Britneys album comes out noone will give a damn about born this way or Stephanie Germsupherass.

  70. 70

    Taylor Swift sold 3,5 mil under 2 months. Subo 3 mil with 1,5 months. Gaga is hardly anything special. She had a whole year…or 14 months to be precise.

    Biebz album was released a year ago too. Do not confuse it with acapella version released a month ago.

  71. 71

    hey Guys BRIT BRIT will debut better
    but on a long term Gaga might pass her

    as a Britney fan i hope she smashes her to piecessssssssssss

  72. 72

    9. Britney Spears will slay with her new album – as expected
    10. Lady Gaga’s new album will DISAPPOINT

  73. 73

    Since when did Britney slay anyone in music? She'll release an album, it'll do well because her retarded fanbase will buy it in bulk, and she'll release a few singles that may or not be successful that no one will remember after they chart. Let's not pretend she's an artistic and musical tour-de-force. She's just a mind-controlled aging former teen star with just a shred of her former glory.

  74. 74

    everyone knows the best-selling is rarely the best… here again, a proof…

  75. 75

    Yay I love GAGA!!!!

    Re: iamamiwhoami – How is britney a has been have you been under a rock. Britneys circus album was her 5th number 1 album and she has sold over 100 million records world wide in 13 years thats amazing and she is the 6th best selling female artist of ALL-TIME she is far from a has-been. Britney is a POP ICON STAY PRESSED.

    I used to like her a lot but that "monster fame" got to her head.. and all the over hype of the new album drives me nuts.. and being compared to Jesus and shit .. i mean wtf? She is just a music artist..Calm it already.. i really hope Britney kicks everyone's ass in 2011..She needs to come back with a bang ;D

  83. 83

    Re: Jendah – yea and gaga isn't right?

  84. 84

    Re: iamamiwhoami – Thats because gaga is new.. People saw her and think "wow never seen that before"… Britney has been in the bizz forever and doesn't have to dress up and promote and make hype 24/7 to sell that much..

    WIFEY? How pathetic. I bet this relationship is just like what you had with Paris Hilton, you thought she was one of your best friends and she considered you someone she ran into occassionaly.
    Pathetic. I for one have NEVER read an interview where Gaga talks about being your wifey or you being one of her best friends.

    I'm so tired of her and Bieber being all over the Got Damn place. I'm surprised that Eminem / Taylor Swift haven't out sold this overrated chick.

  93. 93

    Re: DaRockz – as far a sales for 2010 it sold more than Eminem. The real winner is Lady Gaga.

  94. 94

    Re: brit85 – Ke$ha and Katy aren't on that list because they've all JUST made their debuts this year. They don't have the product endorsements and small empire Britney has. However, Britney doesn't and never has charted anywhere near as good as Katy and Ke$ha do on the Hot 100. Britney's last album, Circus, has only sold 3.5 million copies worldwide to date, and it was released over two years ago. Katy Perry and Ke$ha's new albums have already sold in excess of 2.5 million copies AND they were both released just this year–most notably Katy's, because Teenage Dream was only released back in August and has already sold 75% of what Circus has in two years.

  95. 95

    Re: blahblah12 – She IS slaying Britney right now, and by a looong shot. Britney today is nowhere near as successful as Gaga. 10 years ago, yeah, Britney was VERY successful, but that was 10 years ago so it's irrelevant to bring it up. Yeah, throughout Britney's entire career she's sold more than Gaga, but yes, you're right, Gaga's only been out for two years, but here's the thing: She's already sold upward of 20 million albums and she hasn't even released her second studio album yet (The Fame Monster was just an EP), and if she continues this way, she'll beat out Britney in total record sales in the end. Lady Gaga also works a lot harder than Britney, cares about her fans more, AND actually gives a damn and puts some thought into her music. The fact that she's ugly and is still able to outsell Britney–who only looks to rely on—really says something.

  96. 96

    Re: iamamiwhoami – "They don't have the product endorsements and small empire Britney has." Have you ever wondered why Britney has all these??? Hint: It's NOT because she is irrelevant and unsuccessful. Plus success isn't based solely on chart position and that's why I mentioned the Forbes list. And like I said it's not about sales of one album but the total impact in the whole run of an artists career. You are going to realize how ridiculous the things you say are, when the next "Lady Gaga" comes up and all his/her fans will go crazy stating he/she is the best artist in music history.

    Plus I just checked Wikipedia about Circus: As of late 2009, the album (Circus) has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.[6] The all digital tracks singles and album from the album in the U.S. have sold a combined total of 8 million units as of December, 2010."

    So, you were saying….. (Don't take this the wrong way, I am not personally attacking you. I am just stating my opinion on how music industry works and that thinking an artist will remain no.1 for ever is simply not true and this doesn't mean he/she failed. I will not post anything else on this subject because I have no purpose of getting into a fight!)

  97. 97

    What's with all the people going 'just you wait, 2011 is going to be Britney's year'? Britney had Circus in '08, that didn't 'crush' anything or anyone, wasn't the big long-lasting hit people expected it to be. A year later she put out The Singles Collection (with the utterly annoying '3' on it) which… didn't do much at all. So why would BritBrit be making a splash in 2011?

  98. 98

    Re: robert26101
    How about stating some proper grammar.

  99. 99

    Re: brit85 – The reason why Britney's ranked so high on Forbe's list is because she has successful perfume lines, clothing lines, etc that still make her tons of money. She's by no means on eaves of bankruptcy, that's not what I'm trying to say. I'm well aware of Britney's success and I know she has accomplished a lot within the music business pre-mental breakdown, but since then she hasn't been nowhere near as successful. Fact of the matter is, while she still is moderately successful as an artist, she just doesn't sell that well anymore. Even if she has sold 4 million copies of Circus and not the original 3.5 million like I had said (the wikipedia article stated 3.5 million last night), still doesn't help improve her case that much. She didn't even come close to dominating 2008-09 with the release of Circus, heck, even I Am…Sasha Fierce outsold Circus. She was overshadowed by Gaga that year and will be again in 2011. Gaga's fame eventually will fade, like every one else, I know. But that doesn't change the fact that she's top dog right now.

  100. 100

    Re: Moogle80 – lmao ikr? The singles Collection sold 26,800 copies in its first week. And has sold over 153,000 copies to date. and this is WITH 3 being a #1 single. She flopped harder than Christina Aguilera's Bionic, where Xtina wasn't even able to achieve a top 10 hit. How sad.
