Lady GaGa's Album Sales Projected To Be Even HIGHER!

| Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor SwiftLady GaGaBusiness Blitz

Lady GaGa Thank you

Ahhh!!!! We KNEW projections for Lady GaGa's Born This Way could only increase and THEY HAVE!

Hits Daily Double originally predicted the album to land on the #1 spot on sales charts next week with between 900-950k albums sold, including both digital and physical sales.

However, Billboard is predicting GaGa's latest album's first week of sales will end with AT LEAST 1.15 million units being sold!

Sorry T-Swizzle! You know we love ya, but it looks like Mother Monster's latest is on track to surpass Speak Now, which sold an impressive 1.14 million units its first week last October.

Congrats on the HUGE release, GaGa!

    Dude, she cheated by selling the album for 99 cents. Lets get real, here! Even I bought the dang thing at that bargain cheap of a price. I had no intentions of getting it before that.Whos going to pass up a 99 cent record?

    I long to see ONE day where Perez doesn't post something about GaGa. I'm serious too … there hasn't been ONE day since she started that you haven't posted at least one thing about her.

  3. zooby says – reply to this

    Even on days where she doesn't do something for attention - you post a random quote. I like GaGa, but I can see why people would get annoyed by her. Remember when you tried to be Katy Perry and Amy Winehouse's bitch as well? LOL.



  4. 4

    She's not beating her by much, Perez. Not that serious



  5. 5

    You'll never see Swift's album selling for 99 cents, or be given away in any cheesy promotion. GaGa has taken fraud to a new level.



  6. 6

    Who cares. Courts ruled that the Jennifer Lopez intimate tape can be released. That should be interesting.



  7. 7

    Yeah, its a shame, because it will always be tainted by the 99c promo and Billboard not willing to change the policy. I'm a fan of Gaga, and even i know its not right… People we're buying the album only coz it was less than a buck. Those shouldnt have been counted as consumer sales because Amazon's who really bought the albums and then basically gave them away, let's be honest.



  8. 8

    Cheater…



  9. 9

    lady gaga didn't cheat with a promo done by amazon. amazon purchased each digital copy at 6 dollars and sold them for .99 there was a press release put out by amazon. thus, a very lucky break for gaga. also the two cd versions were sold in walgreens, cvs(a very progressive marketing move). but the 440,000 .99 cent purchases on amazon will always put a cloud on the great feat that occurred in a era of a bunch of little "i deserve it all for free" brats stealing artist work day in day out… congrats lady gaga..



  10. 10

    Only because she gave them away at Best Buy and counted them as sales. I'm so sick of you pushing this dauche bag down our throats.



  11. 11

    Finally figured out why you post so much GaGa. Since you've lost so so many hits, it's the only way you get more than 4 comments per post.



  12. 12

    Yeah when you sell 400,000 copies on amazon when the album is 99 cents that's not such a big deal. She'll never surpass Britney though who sold 1.8 million albums at full price with "Oops..! I Did it Again!"



  13. 13

    99 cents. Two days. Duh, Perez.



  14. 14

    Even with the record sales-that still don't speak highly of her considering that even at .99 cents a album that she has only sold that many. Just shows that it would have sold less had it been at regular price.



  15. 15

    Re: mistique – that was a one and a half day sell get over it! shes still number one on itunes which sells her album at the regular price



  16. 16

    Who's T-Wizzle? I'm sorry, but i don't speak moron.



  17. 17

    Re: mistique – 80% of the albums sold were the the delux edition (which was full price) even less were .99. Even if you took away the .99 records, it is still a massive debut



  18. 18

    If Perez would have put the TRUTH in this article then this wouldn't even be a headline! The headline should really read "Lady Gaga's Album Sales Projected To Be Even Higher BECAUSE She Sold Her Album For Less Than A Dollar!" Whether she just beats Taylor's numbers or not, Taylor made far more money than Gaga has on their last albums.



  19. 19

    I think I will be VERY surprised if she actually sells over a million. You can't go by Billboard, you have to go by SoundScan. I'm also kind of hoping that the Best Buy sales will somehow end up not counting, seeing as how they were given away.



  20. 20

    Re: Mad Dog – the best buy promotion with free cd wasn't counted in the sales. billboard release that imfo on tuesday.



  21. 21

    Re: mistique
    Read the accompanying Billboard article. The figures from Amazon made up less than half of the total sales. She can't be cheating when she had nothing to do with the promo anyway.



  22. 22

    Re: Mad Dog
    The givewaways from Best Buy did not count toward sales.



  23. 23

    Thats great news! I was worried her sales were gonna be bad due to all the bad press.



  24. 24

    Re: Franklin
    Oops I Did It Again? Really? Yeah, compare album sales of today to that of 2000, and you'll always win that one. Are you really that old enough to remember that it sold "full price" the week it was out. I'm sure some queen somewhere bought it discounted at some Tower record store when it was still around



  25. 25

    Also, I can't wait to see the week 2 drop in sales. It's going to be horrendous.



  26. 26

    Re: wiseguy – 500-600k ACTUAL sales (i don't count amazon's 99 cents shit) for an album that was designated the album of the decade is really not that impressive when you compare them to legends that has broken records with their albums at full price, and they did not even have to build a huge hype of self proclamation that their albums were the best EVER.



  27. 27

    Re: GoodBoyNC – how she has nothing to do with a promo she okay's is beyond me.



  28. 28

    Re: BlahBlahBlah3009
    next weeks sales will be lucky to hit 250,00 in the u.s. and slow down from there.. she has a lot of catching up to adele on the world charts to have the biggest cd of the year..



  29. 29

    I'm sure Amazon just randomly chose to partner with Lady Gaga's album release and therr definitely wasn't a behind the scenes deal. Right…
    There will always be an asterisk beside this album's first week sales numbers. It's a cheap way to attempt to set a record.



  30. 30

    FUCKING BULLSHIT! she fucking cheated. taylor swift sold that many at a regular album price. the only reason shes selling is because shes a fucking cheap whore who is selling the albums for 99 cents. fuck lady gaga and fuck you perez.



  31. 31

    This is a slap in the face to real artists who did it the old fashioned way. She should be embarrassed she needed to do this to sell one million copies.



  32. 32

    I wonder how many albums Taylor would've sold if she'd run it at $0.99 since she sold 1.14 at FULL PRICE.

    I'm a big Gaga fan, seen the Monster Ball 3 times, and I think it was a cheap way to boost album sales after disappointing projections to run it at $0.99 for a second day. Personally I felt letdown by the album, didn't enjoy much of it at all.

    Perez, your out of control obsession with all things Gaga has kind of ruined her for me. I've always loved her and now I'm just so sick of hearing everything about her. There's being supportive of your friend (which is totally legit and we should all support our friends however we can) and there's being obnoxious in shoving her down everyone's throat. You have crossed the line to the latter.



  33. 33

    Come on - she practically gave away half of them, not to mention the massive publicity junket guaranteed she would have a big opening. While I think she's kind of fun, there is no way her career can be sustained as people get sick of the freakshow and she has to rely on the quality of her music. Also, she is doing BIG damage to the music industry by selling her CDs so cheap. It's great value for her fans, but it is setting a dangerous precedent. If you have to pretty much give away music, the industry will be financially unsustainable. It's in a terrible state already due to illegal downloads. OK for the mega-rich headline grabbers like Gaga, but dreadful for upcoming talent living on the breadline.



  34. 34

    Let me see I can make a record and sell it to my friends for one penny each and for 12 thousand dollars I can out sell Gaga, she is a joke.



  35. 35

    Wow…. pretty darn awesome! SAWEET!



  36. 36

    And for the non=believers that Amazon sales had nothing to do with this, a quote from Hits Daily Double: "In a watershed moment for the business, as much as 500k of that total will be digital, thanks in large part to Amazon’s price-busting 99 cent sale on Monday. Estimates are that Gaga’s album broke Coldplay’s previous one-week digital record of 288k on the first day, with an estimated 400k being sold across all digital formats in the first 24 hours. It’s clear the strategy of saturating non-traditional retail worked wonders."



  37. 37

    Stoopid article. She was practically giving the damn C- rated album away. You only reduce a price that low when a) you want to place high on the charts and b) it's complete crud that people wouldn't otherwise purchase. And it worked.



  38. 38

    Re: BlahBlahBlah3009 – lmao you're retarded….reread what you just posted…you're actually confirming what we're saying



  39. 39

    Re: BlahBlahBlah3009 – oh wait sorry!!! you're absolutely right, i thought you were saying it wasn't true, sorry sorry lol

  41. 41

    selling your album for .99 cents is going to get you record sales. its a damn shame she is estimated to surpass Taylor Swift's numbers not only that but barely is going to surpass her by giving her album away. i think that's HYSTERICAL, she decided to start giving away her album & she's barely going to beat Taylor, what a joke.



  42. 42

    lol Even though I'm on this anti-hating kick . I have to say it's pretty pathetic how happy you are about this. I'm kinda grasping what their saying, how it's mainly because of Amazon's sale and what not, but if it's not a righteous win is it justifiable? Is there really anything to celebrate… cheating? If what they are saying is true. If it's a contest Taylor Swift still wins honey.

  43. sanaa says – reply to this


    43

    In my view you don't sell a full album at 99 cents. Give it away for free or sell it at a reasonable price of 6.99-9.99. It really devalues the medium for other artists who slave over their work and don't sell that much. Even Arcade Fire's Amazon 3.99 promo I found really suspect but it worked it got them the number one album of the week and that made the press.



  44. 44

    C you on tour miss GaGa xo www.susiegeejazz.com



  45. 45

    Re: BlahBlahBlah3009
    Nobody is saying Amazon sales had nothing to do with it. They're saying it's not the ONLY reason it had something to do with it, which is counterarguing the people who are implying that it is.



  46. 46

    Re: justtospeaktruth
    Hell, if it's selling, why wouldn't you not OK it.



  47. 47

    Re: Brides
    ". You only reduce a price that low when a) you want to place high on the charts and b) it's complete crud that people wouldn't otherwise purchase. And it worked."
    Then why is it #1 on ITunes when it's being sold for $15.99 on there? Why is it flying out of stores when they're selling it for what you would normally pay for a CD? Why is it going #1 elsewhere around the world when there was no special deals?



  48. 48

    give me a break - its not an accomplishment when you sell your album for less than a dollar, its actually quite pathetic. And if anyother artist even did the same it would be considered a flop, so why priase her for selling albums for less than a dollar? The real competition is selling the album at retail cost. Taylor Swift managed to sell her albums without putting on sale at the bargain bin. If I werre Gaga i would be embarrassed that my record company would think so much of my music as to put on sale for that amount. And the music sucks so it is worth .99. Time to rethink your music Gaga and stop trying to write Anthems - write pop music thats what got you here in the first place



  49. 49

    Does anybody know a site like the old perez hilton? One that is funny, edgy and up to the minute, like the old perez? This site has turned into an infomercial about lady gaga. Perez you used to be funny! where is the jizz on the mouth? When i read this blog it reminds of a born again christian. No edge, No fun. Its kinda creepy and uncomfortable now.



  50. 50

    So what's going to happen if the album continues to sell? If it reaches 2 million, 3 million, 5 million, etc., are you people still going to blame it on the 440k it sold at 99c?



  51. 51

    Gaga will have grossed more $$ too since the deluxe version cost almost twice as much and included two cds. And 70% of the physical sales and the sales on itunes were of the deluxe version. That more than makes up for the 99 cent amazon deal. And a lot of those were probably like me. I planned on buying the deluxe version at Wal Mart until I saw the amazon deal so I bought that instead and figured Id add the extra tracks if I liked them. Ill bet theres a lot of people like that.

    52

    When it comes to music I give credit where credits due whether or not Im a fan of the artist but I just dont understand why people are buying this album, I actually liked her early stuff but "my personal opinion" … that album SUCKS!!



  53. 53

    How come no one ever mentions all the artists who give away free copies of their albums (ie radiohead)?!



  54. 54

    Re: latingr8guy – you seem to forget target spent 6 to 7 million dollars promoting tayor swift's cd exclusive. amazon used the lady gaga cd and promoted their cloud service at a cost of 4 million dollars… it was all about promo for amazon and target to get people in the stores.. btw.. lady gaga had a similar deal with target but opted out due to the target corporation couldn't agree on stop supporting anti-gay legislators with donations to their run for political appointment. lady gaga actually suceeeded without such a deal and came out proving she is really for equal rights. a win win.



  55. 55

    No disrespect to her, though this was a great marketing strategy gaga's album is honestly only selling this much because of the 99cent deal. With people like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Usher, and Lil' Wayne, they didn't do things like that to sell that amount of records. Britney's Oops sold 1.3mill in a week and over 500k in a day, Taylor's 1.14, Usher's 1.1, and Lil' Wayne 1mil, and they all did it will full priced albums. I'm sorry but in my honest opinion it's not showing how great the album is or how loyal the fans are, it just shows that anyone with a strong fan base can sell their album for 99cents for 2 days and sell over a million records. This album would have NEVER done that if it wasn't for that. Hell if Adele's album was 99cent i'm sure hers would have sold about 2million in a week with the power behind it. 21>>>>>>>>>Born This Way



  56. 56

    Wonder what she sold outside of Amazon.



  57. 57

    Re: DanielDax – we're not saying that it couldn't be #1 anywhere else, we know that with gaga's fans it was going to be #1 no matter what, but it's been shown that the 2 day 99cent sell sold over 500,000 copies of the album. So add that with the 15 dollar retail price and you get over 1mil. However, I guarantee you that if it wasn't for that sale gaga's album would have sold ONLY about 500,000. But that 99cent sale gave it the extra boost.



  58. 58

    Re: GoodBoyNC – Because if you see a corn dog on sale for a nickel, even if there are better corn dogs being sold at fill price for 75 cents next store, you're going to buy the cheaper corn dog.

    The point is that she cheated. She had a bad album but she needed to sell them because it would have been embarrassing if they didn't sell well, so she sold them for 99 cents.



  59. 59

    Re: i love britney spears
    Who's we? I was responding to one person who said no one would have otherwise purchased it had it not sold for 99 cents.



  60. 60

    Re: TwistinMySobriety – Ummm… let's wait until that happens. Which it probably won't.



  61. 61

    Re: i love britney spears
    Um, first of all, Britney's Oops album was 11 years ago, when Britney was at her prime and the market for buying CDs was much stronger, but I seriously doubt Oops will show up on any "Best Albums of All Time" lists any time soon.
    The thing with Lil Wayne and TS is that they represent two of the best selling genres in the US, country and hip hop. Lady GaGa is a polarizing, controversial artist, so to even have an album debut like that is a big deal.



  62. 62

    Re: Nellygrl
    Alright, Ms. Dionne Warwick. Let's hear it for your psychic abilities. We NOW know that her album won't do well because YOU say it probably won't. Yeah, just like 2 years ago you all were saying she wouldn't be around today.



  63. 63

    Gaga's new album is BRILLIANT! There is nothing like it….the mix of influences, the melodies, techno with rock….No one touches her creativity.Re: cocteauboy – Thank you for setting these people straight when they say it is "fraud"….The haters will only see wrong with Gaga-too bad for them……They should listen to her new album "Americano" or "Marry the Night" may cheer the denial right out of them…Re: Mad Dog – NO ONE is pushing anything down your throat -GET OFF THIS SITE!!! and cheer up, you bitter bitter person!!!!Re: gregoryschmo – Attacking women you don't know with hate just makes you look like a fool, FOOL!!! Replace that hate with love and perhaps you would be happier. GAGA RULES CAUSE SHE IS GREAT WITH AN AMAZING ALBUM!



  64. 64

    Re: Nellygrl
    Lame analogy, and FYI, I opted for the 12.99 CD. Do you honestly think she released this CD thinking it was a bad album? Give me a fuckin' break! And if she really "cheated," she would have released the album significantly lower wherever possible, instead of just Amazon, which doesn't even lead the market in MP3 sales.



  65. 65

    It was a buck!! What an utter FAIL!



  66. 66

    Perez just forgot to mention that 400.000 copies were sold for 0.99 cents on Amazon.com. There's nothing to be proud about it gurl.



  67. 67

    who cares. i can't believe people actually pay to listen to this crap. the lyrics don't make sense nor do her "attention grabbing" outfits. music back in the day was all about talent.. now it's about image.. i don't get it.



  68. 68

    Re: sanfran1 – are u on crack…?



  69. 69

    You all are really stupid…arguing about a damn CD like its the frickin end of the world. For those gaga lovers, High opening sales always mean a downward trend unless you all are willing to buy the album again, gaga haters you all are stupid why would amazon pay face value for an album that caused them a 32 million dollar lose…they are trying to get you all to go to them instead of itunes. She didn't cheat because if it was about money she wouldve said that Amazon would have to keep it at at least 7.99…speak your mind about stuff you do know not about stuff you don't know about it makes you all sound stupid



  70. 70

    kudos to all 3 ladies… Britney S. Taylor S. and Lady Gaga. they all sold 1 million plus copies of their albums in their first week release. The only difference is Britney and Taylor sold theirs in full price! Lady Gaga sold hers for 99cents! So you are a moron if you dont see the difference. Perez take off your blinds and stop being a hipocrite!



  71. 71

    I'm sorry guys but even WITHOUT the amazon albums her album is still a massive success. If you guys read the billboard article, Amazon sold 440k 99 cent albums.. So 1.15 million minus 440k is still 700k albums. 700k! How is that a flop? I bought the Amazon version of the album because it was significantly cheaper, but if the 99 cent deal hadn't existed, I would've gotten the 15 dollar album anyway.

    Let's say only 25% of the people who bought Amazon albums would've still bought the album if it was at full price.. that's an extra 100k. So in actual fact her album very well may have debuted at 800k, which is impressive to say the least. How is 800k not something to be proud of? Stop hating on her. You guys are letting your hate get in the way of good judgment. Any artist would love to debut at 800k.

    "Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” from Vivendi SA (VIV)’s Universal Music Group, is poised to become the biggest album debut since ‘N Sync’s “Celebrity” in 2001, buoyed- to rise to or remain high- by sales for 99 cents at Amazon.com.
    Amazon.com offered the discount again on May 26. The two days resulted in sales of about 440,000 copies, Billboard reported, citing anonymous sources. The album carries a suggested retail price of $11.99 and costs $8.40 wholesale, Billboard reported"

    If you deduct the 440,000 from the 1.15 million, Lady Gaga really sold 710,000.. Is obvious that if they offer you a cd for 99 cents, anyone is going to purchase it..This proves that the sales for Born this Way are not that high..



  73. 73

    ONE other thing about you haters who complain "Perez is shoving Gaga down our throats"- SHE IS EVERYWHERE, not just here! TV, Yahoo, MSN etc….So stop your whining….she just released an album that is selling well world-wide….All you haters do is chirp nonsense and hatred….JUST ACCEPT HER DOMINANCE and shut up. It is a great album…who cares how she sold so many….I mean you haters are pathetic trying to pick apart an amazing talent….YES she is….LOVE YOU GAGA!



  74. 74

    The album sucks and everybody knows it, that's why it's .99, look at her latest two singles.. both flops. I can't believe people are such sheep and are defending this album.



  75. 75

    I don't buy her ”i've always been like this” shit, ’cause I know it's not true, I know her, her sister is my friend, she was not always like that, but she's very talented i've seen her live on several occasions and she's amazing, well she has a very big team, on the other hand her album was .99c just for 2 days and just at Amazon (America) yet she was number 1 worldwide



  76. 76

    Re: Blueblueguy – No, not at all…. Totally sober. Don't have to be drugged to like her album…despite your narrow view and ignorant question. You epitomize the ignorance on this site….Have you actually listened to her new album? If you do not like it, great you are entitled to your opinion…you don't get it, great. However, don't attack others who like creative, club dance, original, imaginative music….MILLIONS LOVE HER….don't hate.



  77. 77

    Seeing how she will only get .01 million over Taylor Swift AFTER her cheating scheme..that does not say much. Even if she made a million more over Taylor, she still would not have won because she cheated all the way through. There are artists out there that don't do half of the gimmicks and still are competitors. Her album was crap and people bought it because it was a dollar. Taylor worked hard and her album carried success while Lady Gaga's shows that she used marketing techniques to make it more appealing.
    Re: Nellygrl – I love your corndog reference hahaha

    Re: sanfran1 – Someone needs to get off their gay parade. Talk about chirping nonsense



  79. 79

    …"Sometimes I feel like being gay is just about buying stuff. Like I’m supposed to buy Lady Gaga albums so I can make meaningless references to meaningless music as if that’s somehow countercultural. Like the only venues for me to meet new people or go dancing is bars that charge a cover and aren’t even owned by queer people. Like I’m supposed to buy a certain brand of vodka, own certain brands of clothing, or travel to gay resorts. Why can’t we communicate who we are without some wealthy assholes making a profit?"….



  80. 80

    I love Gaga BUT even I know what happened isn't fair at all. Taylor Swift sold her album at regular price.. Gaga sold her new album for .99 cents for 2 days on Amazon. I bought 3 copies because of how affordable they were and gifted it to my friends. Its really not fair but I still love gaga for the person she is.



  81. 81

    SHE DID EVERYTHING TO INSURE THIS. BY DONATING A DOLLAR FOR EVERY SPECIAL EDITION ALBUM SOLD FOR 15.99, THEN DOING A DEAL WITH AMAZON TO INSURE THEY WERE SOLD FOR A DOLLAR. SHE PUT EVERYTHING SHE COULD INTO HAVING THIS OUTCOME. SHE HAD A GREAT OUTCOME, BUT SHE DIDN'T DO IT THE RIGHT WAY.



  82. 82

    PEREZ DID YOU FORGET TO MENTION THAT 400,000 COPIES WERE SOLD FOR LESS THAN .99CENTS!!! There's nothing to be proud about Gaga. That is cheating!



  83. 83

    47 billion big macs have been sold ………..still doesn't make em good…



  84. 84

    Re: mistique – Hey ass wipe it wasn't her idea. It was Amazon's and they are still paying the regular price for the album. They are doing it to promote their sound cloud services. So please shut up if you don't know what the fuck you are talking about!!! PAWS UP MONSTERS!!!! (")(")



  85. 85

    It's funny how everyone now is praising Taylor Swift when not too long ago when her album debuted at one million, people were saying basically the same shit: her album is crap, she's only selling so much because people feel sorry for her because of what Kanye did to her, she can't sing or write songs, blah, blah, blah!
    The thing is, no one predicted or anticipated that Born This Way would be so huge its opening week. It wasn't even what they were aiming for. I'm sure the predictions from her label and within the industry thought at the most it would sell 400-500K and be a solid #1 debut. As some people noted, even without the 440k Amazon sales, it still would have sold 700-800k, and some of you are saying that's not really a lot. Are you crazy? Who the hell else does that? Debuting at 500K+ is a rarity and not something that happens every week. And it's storming the charts in numerous countries, but you guys can't believe it wouldn't have done well here had it not sold for 99c?
    I can't even imagine why she would even want her album to be sold at 99c, which was obviously not her doing, because the album can end up selling 10x as much by the end of the year, but people are always going to be like, "that's because she sold it for 99c."



  86. 86

    sales at best buy COUNT -.- read the billboard article



  87. 87

    AND FINALLY- just spent the last 15 minutes reading reviews of BORN THIS WAY- ALL very solid and positive. Rolling Stone called it: Brilliant among other very positive things yes she is on the cover by the way). SO, to alllll the haters, you can deny and write all these angry words, but truth is: The album is great….why don't cha give it a listen….you might acutally like a song or two….Give "Heavy Metal Lover" a try…The music she has created is un-matched and amazing…..goodnight all and POSITIVE thoughts.



  88. 88

    Re: Electro_storm – we get it your a gaga fan, and my cuzin knows her too, but i think other artist would have sold 1 mil easy, if they did the 99cent thing on amazon, gaga didnt need too do that, amazons server freaking crashed, all my friends went crazy, when people see 99cent yeah thats a give away, her album is worth more then that, she may make 1 mil her first week, but she lost alot of money(then again artist dont make money from albums anyways , tour is were gaga makes that moola) and it is number one in 22 other countries, thats only because no good albums are out haha, its not high sales everywhere else.

    Re: yeaman – Haters are also anti-gay too? Charming really, all of you….Gay or straight, what does it matter to you? Another mis-conception about people that like Gaga…..we are straight too yeaman….or should I say "wee man".

    Re: YoungTaurus – you make since. Thats so true

    Of course the tranny's sales are high, she sold her album from 99 cents on Amazon. I'm sorry but that should be illegal. Her sales are illegaly inflated and thats all there is to it. Of course Mario isn't going to report this though.

    Ok seriously.
    To everyone here who is hating on lady gaga! Why do you even bother to read let alone comment on the posts about Lady gaga. Just dont read them. U might have an epiphany.
    To everyone here who is hating on perez! If u hate him so much, why do you go on the site then…stop doing it and u might have an epiphany as well.

    No one needs your hate. Its just annoying and kinda weird. Makes u guys look like you have nothing better to do with your lives and I am assured that that is not true. So go do something useful and maybe take on boxing, so all this hate is released somewhere else

    Re: sanfran1 – Mmmm funny, considering I am a girl. I love how you sit here and bash people that hate her but get your panties in a bunch when someone actually says some valid points. There is nothing amazing about her album sales when every other artist doesnt have to put their album for 99 cents AND still can be her competitor.Taylor Swift who is looked on as being only a "teen artist" and "pop/country star" is her biggest competitor, along with Adele who barely ever is out promoting herself. I have valid reasons for why I don't like her. She is not a true artist and never will be in my eyes if she continues on this path. I liked her once but her gimmicks are getting old and clearly many people agree with me.

    Amazon saw an opportunity to promote their site by offering the album at 99 cents, but what they weren't ready for was the high demand. They pissed a lot of people off who complained about the shitty service, so they decided to do some damage control and offer GaGa's album again at a discount just to prove that they'll "get it right this time." The one who suffers is GaGa, because now she's getting the backlash for having her album out so cheap, even when it was doing well already. Amazon offers discounts on new releases all the time and no one says anything, but they basically threw her under the bus in order to promote their rather sorry service.

    weird..PEREZ, SORRY 'M' is not on here or the first post either..it's definitely him people



  97. 97

    I'll be honest, if i would read here today "lady gaga died"……

    I wouldn't be that sad

    I love the way Britney Spears fans (I'm one but not like some of these people) are shamelessly butt hurt at this records success. There is nothing wrong with a 99 cent special, maybe Britney's team should get an idea or two from her if chart numbers are that important. The free copies given away with Smartphones at Best Buy aren't counted btw. ONLY people like y'all would be MAD because her record is being sold so cheap.



  99. 99

    No she didn't cheat you stupid moron hater. Do some reasearch before commenting, it's as easy as googleing Lady Gaga Amazon and you will get tons of articles about the deal between the two. Interscope sold the albumbs to Amazon at regular wholesale price, but Amazon turned around and sold it for 99 cents in order to promote their new Cloud MP3 service, get a life haters.



  100. 100

    Why should they not be counted, does a record that sells for 99 cents on itunes not count towards billboard?
