Born This Way Crashed Amazon

Holy shizz, guys!

The Little Monsters have amassed their horde over at Amazon.com with the news that they could get Lady GaGa's new album Born This Way for only 99¢!

Amazingly enough, they were so excited that they crashed their servers!

Officials have promised that everyone who has ordered one at that price point will get one, so no worries!

We're sure the servers will be up again soon! We'll keep you updated!

Dang, wifey! You're causing quite the stir!

Have U gotten a copy yet??

    No. She's selling her music for 99 cents in attempt to break records and I refuse to line her pockets. She is a disgrace to the music industry and sends out the wrong message to people everywhere. Normalcy is NOT overrated. Marketing yourself in to a freak as a sales pitch is not a healthy lesson to teach America.

  2. 2

    so will those sales count in sales charts? Cheating!

    they better not.

  3. 3

    Over priced Satanic garbage.

    99 cents, lmao. Does that tell you anything? It tells me album sales will be inflated to reflect that it's nearly being given away. What a desperate attempt to become #1. Madonna didn't rely on the internet to rule the music world, she did it on pure talent.

  5. 5

    well, that is a damn good price. I wish I heard about this last night.

  6. 6

    Ha ha. What an epic moment in history. That just shows how phenomena she is. Mine is still downloading atm. Ordered two and still downloading my first copy. Luckily i have the physical cd i can listen to. :D

    Re: oxceranoid

    why would you buy three copies?? that is so ridiculous. you are obviously perez himself or another person on gagas payroll.

    Selling the Album of the Decade for 99 cents? Now she's copying Mariah Carey. She sold the craptastic "Heartbreaker" single for the same price so it would go to #1, which it did, then it fell hard. Same thing will happen with Express Yourself. Oops, I mean Born This Way.

  9. 9

    She is really one of the most desperate people I've ever seen, and that is no joke.

    The album got burned by critics here, 3/6 and 1/6. Can't say I'm surprised, and although music is something that will be judged subjectively, I'm glad there are people intelligent enough to see passed the circus of distraction and manipulation, and base their judgment on the music only, which was extremely underwhelming.

  10. 10

    I can't believe people still BUY music these days. Shit leaks days, if not weeks, before the official releases and it's free. Why the hell would anyone want to throw their money at greedy music labels and egotistical artists? They already rob you blind when they're touring and we pay BIZARRE ticket prices to see them live. That, more than makes up for my free copy of the album.

  11. 11

    Re: oxceranoid – yea because shes suchhh a phenomenon, how much you want to fucking bet if kanye put out his album the FIRST day it comes out for 99 cents if it wouldn't have crashed the website, or even anyone else that's very popular these days. please, phenomenal value meal is more like it

  12. 12

    *Downloading this now.* This is insane! Born This Way for 99 cents? Hellz yeah!

  13. 13

    it's not like that shitty "music" is even worth a buck, poor sheeple

  14. 14

    spin spin spin. i doubt we'll ever kno if this album was a success or not with liars like you spinning the shit out of wotever she does!

  15. 15

    This woman made music history, I bet she has an amazing team on her side: Marketing, publicity, music direction, etc etc

  16. 16

    Crappy Amazon.com…Canadian customers can't get it for that price. I was going to buy the album, now I'm thinking twice

  17. 17

    Unfortunately and accidently I tapped the side of perez page and it gave a point to I think a gaga page. damnit. she deserves nothing but the worst. she went WAYYYYYYYYYY TOOOOO FARRRRRRRR with this album. I thought it would be a continuation of her awesomeness that was, but this shed total light on how disgusting she really is. I still can't believe how blinded I was by her. Eff her and her 'gay' music. I am gay and totally offended by her grossness. SHAME on you Lady COOCOO! Pure Disgust! SPIT!

  18. 18

    so let me get this straight, she's selling her album on amazon for 99 cents, if you buy a cell phone at best buy they give you a copy of the album, if you buy a zynga farmville card you get a copy of the album and then walmart, target and almost every other media store are selling it for less than $8?!?! Talk about desperate to get to number 1.

  19. 19

    Re: hello hello 75 – Um no sweety. I'm not Perez or anyone associated in Gaga's marketing department. And it's my money i can do whatever i'd like with it.

  20. 20

    From my past experiences, if it's a clearance price, there usually is good reason. Also Perez, what's with this term "wifey". You are gay and she is female, so I don't understand how she can be your "wifey".

  21. 21

    Re: justtospeaktruth – It's one hell of a tasty value meal for sure. I am eating up her beats like candy.

  22. 22

    Re: Electro_storm – @ 15 - Yes, and the very definition of "manufactured'.

  23. 23

    hahahahahaha that's the only way she could sale more than 200k by selling her albums for 99 cents. i'm sorry perez but i listened to some previews of her new songs and they are pure shit this album is shit that's why it's worth 99 cents…. of course she's getting a number one next week look what she had to do to gain that number one spot lady gaga this shows that you don't worth shit HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  24. 24

    That's about 98 cents more than it's worth.

  25. 25

    So how does one out due their single that was given generously given 2000 spins in a day by conspiring stations who played the song every hour on the hour to make "epic" status? Well, let's see, how about selling your CD for .99 cents just to sell a shitload in sales and set more records. How contrived is this crap? Obviously setting records is all that matters to her, cause the quality of the songs on her new CD blow!

  26. 26

    i hate to break it to some of the mentally challenged here. newsflash, record companies make around 7.00 off a new release no matter what. stores who discount and places such as amazon pay the difference out of their pockets. the record company gets that money no matter what no matter if it is the store or the customer who pays. amazon is doing a huge discount promotion on this title at their own cost to promote their new cloud music webservice..

  27. 27

    Either it's because this is her way of trying to break records and sell fast or it's only half decent song on album tho it's still a sucky ripoff!

  28. 28

    Re: Phibes – Every Artist is ”manufactured” so . . .

  29. 29

    u are ALL so fucking stupid.

    go back to school.

    Amazon BOUGHT her albums at regular price. They are paying YOU ten dollars to stick with their cloud service. She could give a rats ass about some Cloud Crap. She is getting her money.

    I bought 3. 2 Deluxe, 1 regular. than another from amazon just to show u idiots up.

  30. 30

    I remeber a couple of years ago when other artists were selling their album for $1.99 and you said that it they were trying to sell copies of thier albums cheap cause their album sucked and it was a marketing ploy to sell their crappy album. Now Lady Gaga sells hers for .99 and it's suddenly a great thing ??????? Hypocrite !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: cocteauboy

    Thank you !!!

    I wont complain about this gigantic book in front of me. So many stupid fucks in this world. Thats why the banks sold u bad credit and got AWAY with it to this day ! U dont know any better about business. fuck that. this is logic. i knew that from the start.

    What idiot would sell an album for 99 cents if it couldnt possibly cover the cost.


  32. 32

    Perez Please repost what PROMOTIONAL services Amazon is doing. Srsly. These people are in need of a lesson. They need to be educated and u have an outlet.

    How sad no wonder Donald Trump and Sarah Palin get any ratings. this country is filled with so many S-T-U-P-I-D people. STUPID.

    if this doesn't scream "desperate for album sales" to you then you're just a lost cause & no wonder gaga is able to fool you so well. if she doesn't succeed, you don't succeed, right monsters? "we did it monsters! this is all for you!" that's one winner of a PR statement I'll tell you that much. stay blind little monsters. it's "all for you", just don't forget your wallets.

    Re: Zitorage
    it is sad people don't know the basic model of the music business.. the record companies have a base price for their product. the stores who carry the product add their percentage in to make a profit. some stores will discount, usually, down to 7 to 8 dollars if you are lucky to get people in the stores or promote a program. this 99 cent lady gaga regular cd deal is pretty unprecedented to promote their new service. lady gaga is simply the lucky benefactor to this great deal when it comes to her sales. they are legit sales because amazon is paying the difference to her record company for the digital rights of the music

    Re: crazytimez5643 – haha yup, don't forget her deal with Starbucks too. She's cashing in on this one. Actually, given the amount of over aggressive promo for the born this way single & the actual album, itunes emails, paid for radio spins & positive reviews, being the featured video on youtube for months, her billboards & murals on buildings & subways, along with farmville, amazon, best buy, starbucks, that "monsters" party, the full week "gaga thon" on Fuse (7 f*king days of the same gaga videos…7 DAYS…ask yourself how much it would cost to buy out Fuse for an entire week…)…interscope might not make that much with this one lol hey at least Taylor Swift & Eminem went to number one without having to resort to any of that or selling themselves for 99cents.

  36. 36

    Re: IVIV
    i could care less. i am a madonna fanatic. the point of ignoring basic music business models defaults your ignorance.. record companies don't sell 99 cent cds. heck even budget cds from way past go for 5 dollars. so what are you proposing? lady gaga trumps the whole record company model just to hit no.1 on a release? methinks you need a tin foil hat.

  37. 37

    Re: Zitorage – well you see, genius, Amazon is not stupid either they made it that fucken price because they KNOW everyone will flock and buy the album, i doubt they make a profit off EVERY single album sold but more of the total accumulated, so think….if 1,000,000 is going to buy the album at $1 that's still a million dollars and they will pay whatever % they owe to the record company and still end up making a hefty profit, rather than wait until people buy up to that much at regular price. It's a risk they're willing to take, and obviously the "genius" monsters are buying two, three copies (for godssake why???) and working the plan accurately. You must be really easily manipulated to think they're PAYING us to use some crappy cloud thing….

  38. 38

    Re: cocteauboy – and yes its "PROMOTIONAL" in the sense that this will only last ONE day and bring attention to their cloud service at the same time….seriously you have some type of gaga fever thats making you say any shit for her favor

  39. 39

    She has managed to promote her album so much that she can capitalize on the advertising from so many different sources. Farmville, Cloud. These are all services that DONT have a way of reaching a broad-based audience. U think Farmville is gonna run an ad on TV? LoL no.

    The way it works is these STORES buy the album. from there. lady gaga doesnt give a fuck. Its theirs. If they dont sell, the store lost money. Thats why there is a DIFFERENCE between ACTUAL buys and STORE buys. thats why Itunes is used as a frequent counter, because they are able to control the ACTUAL buys a person makes.

  40. 40

    They are just not used to it all. They see someone who can dance (AHEM BRITNEY who looked like she took a shit on that stage last night), someone who is stands up for her fans (name a bitch that gives away doughnuts. YES FOR RECORD SALES u will say. NAME A BITCH? none).

    So much shit still about lip-synching, because no one is used to talent. I saw people commenting on Perez that she was "out of tune" because she belted higher notes than the recorded track. point blank. u are delusional, not if u dont like her music, but if you think that an artist would blood and thirst their way to what you guys are describing as BANKRUPCY.

    It should count in record sales. Too bad none of these other artists have the capacity to promote internationally. THAT is why u havent seen this before. Because no one was WORTH the advertising cost. It should count in record sales. Its a strategic way to sell albums, too bad no one else can do it. Too bad. Back on your throne Queen.

    Re: justtospeaktruth

    U still dont get it. they are not profiting on the album. they want u to take their cloud service. thats all they care about. Beating out Apple. That 1 million u just said, is 1 million activate accounts. versus someone going to the bathroom during a football game for a price of 2 million dollars for 30 sec.

    Amazon stood no chance with cloud if Apple released it because it has brand commitment from its customers. Its like selling the other versions of Ipad I dont even know the name for - why, because Apple has done a good job making sure u get their version. Now amazon is doing the same.

  42. 42

    Re: oxceranoid – don't choke! (please do)

  43. 43

    It's called competition, people! Amazon is the ONLY site offering the album at 99c, and just the basic version at that (you still have to pay more for the deluxe version), and it's only just for one day. They're obviously trying to compete with ITUNES, who have actually partnered with her in promoting the album. Right now it's #1 on ITUNES as well, despite the fact that's it being offered at $15.99 for the deluxe version on their site. So yes, people are buying it, regardless if it's 99c. To say she's being desperate, when she probably has little to nothing to do with it is like saying Nike is desperate because you can find some of their merchandise cheaper in one store than in others.

  44. 44

    Re: justtospeaktruth

    I buy 3 copies because she is capable of reviving the CD experience for me. The whole process. Opening your copy, looking at the art, putting the CD in - its a materialist copy versus the unsatisfactory experience of getting the music from Itunes or Amazon. I still buy through these outlets (well actually no I dont, because I only will buy a few artist's songs the rest is on youtube), primarily for gaga, for the sake of having a digital copy.

    I still get butterflies unwrapping the CD.
    To be honest, I buy 3 because I support her craft.

    What I dont support is Britney taking a shit on stage with Rhianna, by the looks of how she was dancing. That is BLAND and SYNTHETIC.

    I also buy even MORE copies because I give them out for any occasion.
    Including the deal I had with my friends, U buy her album, if u dont like it I will give u the money.

    I am a true fan. sorry been there since her first video no TV at 3 am. ever since than, its been nothing but love for the artist. Her concerts are a must - I loose myself in the crowd, most freeing experience I ever had.

    Re: Zitorage – y would farmville run an ad on tv? its an internet game & has more chance of reaching people on the net, a lot of people don't even own tv's anymore, they watch online. & yes, she did promote the shit out of the album & that all cost money. Whatever Interscope gave her in her advance, they have to make back in her sales, as well as recording costs, touring, videos, etc. when amazon sells born this way, they aren't paying for the packaging or shipment, it's digital. they are not "stuck" with any cd's they can't sell. amazon is not selling the ACTUAL cd for 99cents, packaging & all. there's a reason for that. the 99 cent version is digital ONLY. amazon gains from this traffic, money, people will buy other things with their purchase while they are there, cloud service users & it takes away traffic from itunes. gaga gets more album sales, ppl buy multiple copies cuz its so cheap & theyre superfans, music reaches more people when its more accesible. all this does is CREATE more money & OPPORTUNITIES to make money for gaga & interscope & amazon. they all profit from it, it's called a deal. I'm very aware of how advances, royalties, & recoupment works. I also know how MARKETING & PR works.

  46. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: Zitorage – not entirely true. gaga would "give a fuck" if her album didn't sell physical copies because a store CAN send it back, it's called "reserves". a label can hold back a portion of royalties from the artist, in the case that their cd doesn't sell (that's the actual physical CD, not the digital version) that way they don't lose money, & that's just more $ gaga would owe her record company on top of the money she'd owe from the advance & whatever it cost to record, produce, promote etc the album. Labels don't just give the artist the money to make albums, they have to pay that back, which is why album sales matter, & why promo has been upped with artists & why gaga's promo has been so crazy. She NEEDS a #1 debut, interscope NEEDS her to stay on top, because she can actually make money off of these little monsters. selling it for 99cents is a marketing strategy for both her & amazon.

  47. 47

    So in other words, she's GIVIN' IT AWAY?!


  48. 48

    Re: IVIV

    I couldnt bare to read the rest of ur comment because it was filled with bullshit speculation. just wait till u hear the statistics regarding its sales. wait till u have history re-written than continue your bullshit talking. peace out. off to listen to one, 2, 3 copies and buy more for friends.

    500 dollars in the bank for her concert.

    I never set out to change anyone's mind, just set the fact straight.

  49. 49

    Re: IVIV
    you almost have it correct.. except amazon itself is taking the loss to advertise the cloud service. the record companies is not in cohoots with them. where is the article stating such?
    there is a base cost for a digital copy cd as there is with a physical cd. there isn't no magic downgrade in price from the record company.. what does the record company have to gain by giving away a cd for 99 cents? none.. this is all on the amazon company taking the loss to pay from their own pocket to pay for the base price of the record company. it is called promotion. a very expensive one that is apparantly backfiring with people being frustrated wanting for the download to their computer.

  50. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – well, she's still selling it normal prices on other services & sites, & the amazon promo is said to be only for today. that doesn't mean she isn't gaining anything else from this promo deal with amazon, as amazon themselves are gaining users for their cloud service, traffic, transactions, etc, gaga gets more album sales, (this is a digital sale, not a physical cd sale, more $ goes into packaging & shipping the actual physical cd, digital not so much) I mean you'd be fooling yourself if you said this particular promo isn't single handedly securing her a #1 debut. All the die hards already purchased the album at full price, & some multiple copies. Now that it's so cheap on amazon, they will buy another copy/copies to help her, & all the people out there who are just regular fans, or just interested, will purchase it for 99 cents if they didn't want to spend the full price before.

  51. 51

    Re: IVIV – You were obviously bullied too! lOLZ

  52. 52

    I understand all this cloud based thing needs to be aware to the world, but once Apple comes around with their service–they will be the top. It will. Sooooooo many people already own Apple stuff!!!!!!!

    Why, if you're such a big huge poppppppppularrrrrrr artist, want to sell your shizz for .99cents???? Yes, its on Amazon and at stores it's a little bit more, but .99 is wayyyyyyy too cheap aka how her new sound is! She is a true and brilliant artist–so she MUST know and hear that she has been having a lot of hate regarding her latest crapmusic. I definiately was turned off with Born This Way. It's so dumb. It' s not OMGGGGGGGGGG I WAS BORN THIS WAYYYYY EVERYBODYYYYYYY AHHHHH SO COOL! Ew. No. So childish. Anyway a cheap cd/product=cheap shit. You get what you pay for!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and whyyyyy did she release 3 singles?!?! Britney released 2 before dropping her HOT HOT HOT album. I rather pay full price for JLOs new album than this dud! Whyyyyyyyy is her album cover THAT WAY?!?! Ughhhhhly like her newness. Where is Beyonce to slap this bitch up?! bahaha! GIRLS! Not Monsters.

  53. 53

    Bullshit!!! I see nothing for .99 cents. W/E

  54. 54

    Re: Zitorage – i wrote out a whole box full of reply to you but IVIV seemed to have said basically the same i was going to say, and he/she is completely right. No one's trying to make you not love gaga or something, love gaga all you want but that doesn't mean we can't analyze and state things that are pretty obvious. I think perez is the cause to blame for us (that aren't under lady gaga's money sucking paws) being so angry because he promotes her so much but we're not all just assholes hating on someone for no reason (well at least i know im not….i don't know for that M. subject/person)

  55. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: cocteauboy – who knows what "loss" amazon is taking really, you'd have to know the "base cost" for a digital copy, you'd have to know gaga's specific percentage she recieves per sale in her contract or if she has a 360 deal, & you're ignoring their gains…like I said, opportunities this promo presents to make more money. this very story said this deal caused them to crash. thats TRAFFIC. that's promo, that's money. that's business. itunes didn't crash, amazon did, because of the amount of people downloading from amazon right now because of this joint PROMO deal. what does the label get? 1 of their biggest artists stays on top with her #1, her fanbase(money) stays behind her (which means the money keeps coming…) they get promo, gaga gets promo, more people have the album who most likely normally wouldn't…this is marketing. you make money, & you find ways to manipulate, create more opportunities to make money. PROMO costs money. so why does promo exist? because it helps make money. this is a promo deal, for both amazon & gaga.

  56. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: Ohholla – it's basically a "legal" way to buy your artist a #1 lol. why do labels buy their artists spins, plays, albums (which is illegal)? because they need them to stay on top, to break records, to be relevant, current, so they can continue to MAKE money off of them. Gaga is one of the industry's heavy hitters right now who's face/image can still bring in money. They will shell out cash to keep the gaga business alive as long as they possibly can because of this. sometimes, you gotta spend money to make money. or in this case, to keep making money.

  57. 57

    lol, it's just so sad. this is the ugliest album cover i've ever seen.. made by the ugliest pop star i've ever seen

    Re: IVIV
    the only articles i have read was there was no deal with interscope records and lady gaga. all the articles are stating this was a promotion by amazon to promote their new cloud service. there are many articles coming out this afternoon of the actual bad press that ended up with this expensive promotion done on amazon behalf. i used to work at a record shop when i was younger and there is a base price for music. it is also translated to the digital market. there is no way interscope would give their bread and butter artist to a .99 bin. though i have to agree that the numbers of lady gaga's debut are distorted since lady gaga fans are buying multiple copies and inflating numbers. but the purchases are legit and must be counted. i, personally, find it foolish to buy multiple copies to hike up numbers.

  59. 59

    I listened to the CD on Napster. I liked most of the songs right away. I bought it. If you don't like it, then don't buy it. End of story.

  60. IVIV says – reply to this


    Re: cocteauboy – even the most casual of fans would purchase it for 99 cents. if someone I was just a casual fan of had an album, especially brand new, for 99 cents, I'd buy it. This also makes up for the sales the album would have lost due to it leaking in FULL last week. & most likely even bringing in more even if it didn't leak. I agree with you, that the numbers will now be skewed. She will debut at #1 now, it's pretty much secured. How could she not? & the monsters will be oh so happy, because like lady gaga always tells them "its all for them", if she debuts at #1, she'll say "you did it monsters! you're number one!" it's just another part of her marketing to keep her successful lol if she fails, they feel like they do too. she can tell her little monsters they are #1 all she wants but she's the one getting the recognition & praise on top of all the money. it's kind of sick, but whatever floats your boat lol

  61. 61

    To everyone whining that this is "cheating," this whole thing is the market. Since btw is 99 cents, people buy lots of copies, and amazon gets more customers. win win. I don't see what's wrong with wanting more money and sales.

  62. 62

    i got her entire album free playing farmville :P

  63. 63

    lambert's first album was free also. Dont know how these ppl make a living. its all concert $ i guess. Labels steal all the cd money anyway

  64. 64

    I wouldn't pay 2 cents for that trash…gaga sucks, angry at the world because she's not pretty. If you can't find success as an ugly person, see how wierd you can be….gotta get the attention some way or another…shame though shes passing it off as being genuine, when you look at the pics before she was famous, she was such a plain jane…

  65. 65

    Its a shame Amazon are not extending the promotion to any of us outside the US, then again I'm happy enough to pay £7.99 for the basic album (I am NOT paying several pounds more for 3 new tracks plus a load of remixes, particularly when the one extra track I heard is crap, the Fame Monster extras were all new songs and I loved every single one of them) as I've been listening to the free (legitimate) streaming on a UK newspaper site for the last week and its a great album, there isn't one track on there that I don't like. Bloody Mary is the standout track, Government Hooker, You and I, Americano and Edge of Glory are also great and the rest come between listenable to (ie I wouldn't remove the track from my playlist but its not likely to be a favourite) and good. Its a weird mix of 80's/90's pop sounds merged with soft rock (on some tracks) and driving dance beats, a varied offering and a decent enough second album - although I'd agree its hardly the album of the decade - we aren't far enough into this decade to be making those kind of judgements yet and I still think Gaga hasn't had her seminal album (the one any good artist has and then can never top - take Led Zeppelin IV as an example of a seminal album if you don't know what I mean or Stone Roses by Stone Roses) yet, she is still finding her feet in the mainstream music industry.

  66. 66

    Stop with the "wifey" thing. It's disturbing. She thinks you're gross dude. Seriously. But she'll only say that behind closed doors. She calls you "The Paraceetah with bad breath." I kid you not.

  67. 67

    I bought 3 albums total today. 2 deluxe one regular, another mp3 download on top of those.

    Through Amazon I sent 25 people the album as a gift !!!!

    I LOVE my lady gaga. yes. her monsters buy more than one copy. its not cheating, its a testament of fan base. Lots of people do that with other artists, just no one has it this good other than her.

    Bought a song JUST because I wanted to listen to it on my Iphone atm. one of the remixes.

    Buying just once more from Itunes, and another deluxe and I am done.

    Re: canagirl78

    Its called evolving. look at ur pictures. are u the same Fucking retard. wait yes u are. but physically u have changed, perhaps even in style.

    Perhaps ur problem stems fro the fact that ur mind has no imaginative capabilities. u are a static human being, with no dynamic change.

    the people that support her, understand what it means to be free. the fact u spoke on behalf of her looks when she focuses on music, is a testament of your ignorance. She has the nicest ass in the industry. toned as can be. But that means nothing.

    static. perpetually through our life. how sad.

  69. 69

    Her album is 99cents online, but she's number one WORLDWIDE, she has an amezing team backing every crazy shit she does

    Re: Zitorage – Would you, as an obviously brainwashed and slightly off kilter person, have sent the full album to 25 of your friends if it was $10 or more per album? Doubt it. She was counting on you (mindless) monsters to do just that. In the end it's pathetic this woman is so desperate for sales she leaves it up to her mindless minions to pay $1 for all of their "friends" who wouldn't have even paid $1 for it, otherwise they would have done so for themselves if they cared enough to have it.

    Re: IVIV
    ""I'm very aware of how advances, royalties, & recoupment works. I also know how MARKETING & PR works. "
    Actually you sound like you don't. You are trying to imply that she is in on this deal with Amazon to release the album at 99c just to skew record sales without any evidence or support. The Lady herself has been urging fans to purchase it through ITunes. You're just going on a HUNCH that she's doing this, because you have a bias against her, and anyone who disagrees with you is some "little monster" who just doesn't get it. It's not that black and white. The album has been hotly anticipated. It would have gone #1 regardless of how much it's selling for. The big record companies have been casting a weary eye over this whole Amazon Cloud thing for the last couple of months or so, even threatening lawsuits. Amazon took advantage of one the most anticipated albums of the year and decided to use it to promote their own service. If GaGa is desperate, then why is the album #1 on Itunes and on international Amazon sites around the world, where customers didn't have the privilege of downloading so cheap? What will be your excuse today that's it's still #1 on Amazon even when the promotion deal is over? What will be your reasoning if the album stays at #1 on Billboard after the first week, even when the hoopla and heavy promotion has died down?

    Wasn't it just last June that Gaga fans made a fake picture showing Christina Aguilera's album selling for 99cents and Perez posted it up and and him and all the Little Monsters were making fun of her, calling her disgusting names, oh you know how sweet those little monsters can be. But oh look, Gaga IS ACTUALLY selling her album for 99 cents and it's genius! You Gaga stans are the most disgusting and hypocritical stans I have ever come across.

  77. 77

    Get it straight, people. Gaga isn't doing this, AMAZON is. It helps her get sales, yes, but Amazon is the one doing it to promote their new Cloud Drive thing.

    But keep on hating Gaga- that's what everyone wants to do, find any reason they can to hate her when all other sources PROVE that AMAZON is the one doing this- not her.

    "Why such a deep discount? Kafka speculates that Amazon is using the debut of Born this Way to tout its new cloud music service, Cloud Drive."

    "But now Amazon has another reason to push digital albums. The new Cloud Drive file storage service - which is facing stiff competition from Google and, soon, Apple — is being prominently advertised next to "Born This Way" to induce customers to get 20GB of free storage with the purchase of this or any album. In other words, you can spend 99 cents and get $20 worth of storage for a year."

    Re: justtospeaktruth

    Do the math. If Amazon purchases 1,000,000 albums from Interscope for $8 (just throwing a price out there), that's $8,000,000 they're spending.
    EVEN IF people buy three copies, ten copies, etc. of the album at $0.99….each album is STILL only selling for…$0.99. So they're only going to make….$1,000,000 which means they have a $7,000,000 that THEY have to cover THEMSELVES.

    Re: Jaimee22

    Don't make it like ALL Gaga fans laughed at the Xtina CD pictures and then are cheering for the $0.99 thing. Did some of them do that? Yes- there are indeed some hypocritical Gaga fans that need a good kick in the teeth. But I know I did NOT and others did NOT as well, so it's wrong to assume.

    It's annoying how people do that. "I saw some fans laugh at this thing, now I see other fans praising this thing! Hypocrites!" never mind the fact that those could have been entirely DIFFERENT people laughing and praising the things….nope, just throw everyone in the same boat- if one fan does it, it must mean they all did it. v.v

    Re: Kayla9690 – and think this like i obviously i stated in that comment, at 15$ the albums would not be selling like hot potatoes like it was selling at 99 cents, now, Amazong has the option of either waiting for it to sell one million copies at $15 or just put that shit out at 99 cents and let it reach a million quick as lightning and still be able to basically pay off what they owe rather then waiting, and uhm promotions only last a certain time so after selling like hot potatoes for yesterday only it goes back to normal price which then is allowing them to make even more money. It's simple, don't have to get crazy over your gaga

    Re: Zitorage – her attitude stems from her looks. As far as music is concerned, I was a fan. Not any more. So sick of hearing the same crap over and over. ro ma ro ma aaahh….judah…jud ah..ahh. Absolutley nothing original about gaga anymore. The fact that she has been compared to Madonna is no coincidence. Her music is a complete rip off…and seriously, i have evolved, I don't dress the same way as I did 10 years ago, but I have not made a direct effort to see how far I can go. I know what it is to be free, I just feel sorry for all the people who look to gaga as a role model, because eventually she will let them down…

  82. 82

    SHE KNOWS THE ALBUM IS SHIT AND IT WAS GOING TO FLOP AT THE NORMAL PRICE! SHE KNOWS IT! Even at that lame price, she's still gonna flop, but not that hard… FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT! DIE CACA, DIE! xD Trying hard not to flop harder than Xtina xD

  83. 83

    I work in best buy and they are giving it away pretty much and no one is buying it, In 4 hours not a single person bought one, that tells you something, its a horrible album. She looked coked out of her mind on letterman.

  84. 84

    Whether Gaga lowered the price or Amazon doesn't change the fact that people can buy multiple copies just to increase sales, something impossible in the case of Taylor Swift's album (which was quite cheap though).
    And let me get this straight. Amazon all of a sudden decided to lower the price of Gaga's album? Why didn't they do it with Adele's which is selling consistently well?

  85. 85

    Re: J.rose6 – omg right??? she was acting sooooo coked out and itching at her boots and was so eager to touch letterman but wasn't sure how to and laughing weirdly and not being "normal" gagaish

    Re: Mushu Baby
    Why don't you contact Amazon and ask them why they haven't sold Adele's album for 99c? The most likely answer is it's already been out for a while; they chose the 23rd to help launch their new service because of a same day debut where tons of people would buy it the first day it's out.
    But why does it bother you people that other people buy multiple copies of something? It's their right to do so if they want to. The real truth of the matter is, no one is quite certain yet that Billboard will count those sales in next week's charts; most of their tallies comes from Soundscan, which counts physical copies of an album sold rather than digital sales. The fact that people bought multiple digital copies rather than going out and buying the CD could actually make a difference whether or not the album debuts at #1, although it's kind of likely it will make it there.

  87. 87

    um….why the hell would they need to sell an album for 99 cents? is the record company freaking out that their not gonna make any money? i listened to it, don't think it's bad, but it's not great either, but i at least respect her attempt at being "edgy."

    I wouldn't give her a penny of my money.

    Re: crazytimez5643 – i know right? the best buy free albums i believe don't count towards record sales, (correct me if i'm wrong) but either way it is pretty desperate…

    Re: Jaimee22 – Well… You know, Christina is a rude, selfish bitch with a ego higher than Mount Everest. If she didn't take a jab at our precious Gaga, no one would of been nasty and vile to her. Yet i read (not sure if it's true) that she continues to talk smack about Gaga. She just needs to STFU already because no one cares what this see you next tuesday thinks anymore.
