    I'm expecting GaGa fans to start talking delusional shit in 3…2…1….



  4. 4

    Britney's Oops!…I Made The Same Songs Again just beat her. Awe, too bad.



  5. 5

    Let's see how fast this shit drops the second week!! lol Unless if Amazon decides to sell it for .99 cents again. lmao



  6. 6

    Okay I know I'm a huge Gaga fan but this album is really, really good! It has a very unique sound! Even without the .99 deal (which sold about 100,000 copies, she still sold a million. I know people love to hate her but this is a real accomplishment!! Congrats Gaga



  7. 7

    Enough already! You've been posting for DAYS about this - when NO OTHER site could give a shit. WHO CARES? This is serious proof that she is paying you, and/or you are so far up her ass that you can't see straight.

    Really. NOBODY CARES.



  8. 8

    LOLZ!



  9. 9

    Is this GaGa.com now?

    Re: wiseguy – "Amazon's attention-grabbing download price of 99 cents last Tuesday and Thursday helped drive "Born This Way" to an unprecedented 662,000 in digital sales, pushing the album to nearly three times initial estimates by Universal Music Group. Amazon sold more than 440,000 of those copies alone, but with mixed results."

    Most Little Monsters can't count past 100.



  11. 11

    Minus 400,000.



  12. 12

    Re: wiseguy – Don't you mean over 400,000? Lol! You mean even GaGa's little turds are ALSO lying and making FACTS up? Don't worry your fat little head, I'm sure Mother Munster will always be there for her fans!!! LMAO!!!!!!! Read today she's going broke…spent too much on her 7 year long tour…told Stephen Fry she's in DEBT!!! I guess copying everyone and lying your ass off, and cheating doesn't add up to good business sense!! Maybe she can her MBA from Wharton next??!! HA HA!!!



  13. 13

    Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – Wow, you are such a hating troll. Get over yourself.



  14. 14

    Even with gaga being a .99 whore and with social media lady caca still could not break BRITNEYS fist week sales record!!!!Re: Laury – You mad gaga could never!!!



  15. 15

    Isnt this the same exact post from last night but posted again with slightly different wording?



  16. 16

    Re: wiseguy – Actually in a press release. The fact is she sold 440,000 copies through the Amazon .99 promo. So no she wouldn't have sold a million in the first week. It would have been around 700,000 or less… Might want to get your facts straight ;)

  17. barny says – reply to this


    17

    The only way she was able to do this was because Amazon sold it for .99 cents.he truth is the Album sucks.



  18. 18

    Re: ladygaga4eva – How the fuck is it hating if he is stating the FACTS!!! Something you gaga fans hate to hear your just as bad as them beiber fans!!!



  19. 19

    I don't think the Amazon sales should have been counted….who wouldn't by a hit artist's new album for .99?! and Perez…..STOP WITH THE GAGA PROMOTIONS!!! It's sooooo annoying!



  20. 20

    Its already falling off the charts on Itunes Little Monsters.HAHAHAHAHA



  21. 21

    You've failed to mention that most of the albums were 99cents which is absolutely unfair/bullshit & her album has already fallen to #4 on iTunes, we can expect a huge decline next week I bet 50% or better. Lets be real hear. The album is Trash. #GIRLBYE #SIDEEYES



  22. 22

    I just think it's funny that radio isn't playing it. And that the album is already falling on itunes and all the singles are flops.



  23. 23

    I really am so tired of this over-exposed GaGa in my face every day. Three albums in three years with constant media exposure is just too much. I think I would appreciate it more if she would make one good album and then wait before spitting out new songs every day - rather more quality than quantity. It is all just too much and makes me tired of her music. When she first appeared on the scene, I downloaded a lot of her music, but now not at all - I'm tired of it already. Too much in your face.



  24. 24

    Are you sure she's not buying them herself? Look I loved her first stuff but I just don't really get this new ABBA inspired garbage….and she's just too strange for me to take her seriously anymore -



  25. 25

    Re: SlaveMeh – omg THIS THIS!! they always think those who complain about it are haters lmao, lol ive seen huge gaga fans not happy with 99cents thingy lol



  26. 26

    Re: wiseguy – You truly are a dumbass!!!

  27. M: says – reply to this


    27

    are u serious??again the same news???? so what?shes a fraud. if she wouldnt put her album on sale for 99 cents she would only sell half of those numbers. GAGA SUCKS. what matters is that the album got horrible critics and next week it will flop.iots only her 2nd week and the album is only #1 in 3 countries… so she wont last many time on #1 billboard chart. SHE SUCKS. WANNABE RIPP OFF AND NOW A FRAUD.THIS ARENT EVEN REAL NUMBERS ..MANY FANS BOUGHT 20 COPIES A DAY… FAKE.



  28. 28

    Re: audiojosh
    Most of the album sold were for 99c? 440k of 1.1 million is most? You make a prettier person than a smart one.



  29. 29

    Re: M:
    Actually it's #1 in about 10 countries so far, and will probably be more than that once the official charts post by the end of the week



  30. 30

    Boy, are there a lot of people with bad taste on this planet.



  31. 31

    Re: e_manthey
    You're assuming that everyone who bought it for 99 cents wouldn't have bought it all otherwise. 700 or less is a rather conservative figure. You don't know of those 440,000, how many would have still bought it regardless of the deal.



  32. 32

    Re: yeaman
    Well, you know Perez is relying on number of hits these days, and who doesn't get more hits than this person..



  33. 33

    Entertainment Weekly reports Amazon sold 444,000 copies of Born This Way at the bargain-basement price of 99 cents over the course of two days last week. With a reported total of 662,000 digital copies sold, that would mean only 218,000 of the album's first week digital sales were made at full price. Subtracting digital out, hard copy sales of the album come in at around 478,000. In other words, the album sold–really sold– 696,000 copies, with the 444,000 albums sold through Amazon looking something like a PR expense.

    So…. not so epic.



  34. 34

    anddddd the album is number 3 on itunes after 1 week……but i thought everyone loved the album? i thought it was the album of the decade? surely it could have beat uhhh death cab for cutie and some other dude and stay number 1 for a few more weeks no? since the 99 cent deal had nothing to do with her being #1 all over right? whatevah we're just haters…



  35. 35

    Re: YoungTaurus – Only 200,000 or so copies were sold on iTunes. If people were going to buy the album regardless why wouldn't they buy if off of the more used and popular iTunes? Be real the people who bought it from Amazon wouldn't of bought it if it wasn't for .99 cents. If your argument was right then the iTunes downloads would be higher…



  36. 36

    Re: StinkyPerez – With all due respect, "Stinky" 1,108,000 people seem to care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  37. 37

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – What the hell are talking about bubble/balloon tits???!!!!!!!!!



  38. 38

    I think the Amazon sales should be counted, because they were bought and paid for. But the low price encouraged a lot of people to buy multiple copies and that's really not fair. I don't get why people would need to buy multiple copies in the first place because the album was going to do great anyway, but whatever. Congrats to her I guess, but it still feels like cheating to me.



  39. 39

    Fat little flop monsters must run out and buy 10 more copies each, or BTW is sure to have a record breaking plunge in its second week. Waddle as fast as your chubby little legs will carry you, li'l floppers.



  40. 40

    ……AND P.S. - You "Monsters" act like this is the first time an artist has ever sold a million copies in his/her first week. It is not - it's not even the highest grossing amount. And spin it however you like - the amazon.com 99cent deal DID play into it, when NO OTHER artist had that luxury. You sound like cult members. If you like her album, great. If not, great. Why care if about it going to #1 so much? Isn't it SUPPOSED to be about the MUSIC?



  41. 41

    Re: e_manthey
    "If people were going to buy the album regardless why wouldn't they buy if off of the more used and popular iTunes?"
    Duh, because it was 99c. That was Amazon's plan. To steal market share from Itunes."
    "Be real the people who bought it from Amazon wouldn't of bought it if it wasn't for .99 cents."
    And you know this how? Did you ask everyone who bought it for 99c and they confirmed this with you?
    "If your argument was right then the iTunes downloads would be higher."
    Except that wasn't what I was saying. I'm asking you how would you know of the 440K, who bought it, NONE of them would have bought it had it not been on sale for 99c to make the sales go down to 700k or less. Even if you asked people who would have bought it if there was no promotion, and only 30% said yes, that's still an extra 132,00, which would have made sales about 800k at least.



  42. 42

    Re: e_manthey – except that it was 444,000 copies sold at 99 cents.



  43. 43

    at 99 cents, its not hard to sell a million of anything!

  44. 1finn says – reply to this


    44

    It's going down faster on iTunes than Perez on Matty B.



  45. 45

    The fact of the matter is, all GaGa had to do was sell more than 153,000 copies (that’s how much Brad Paisley sold to debut @ #2), and she would have got the #1 spot, and that most likely wouldn’t have been a problem. Amazon already had foresight on how well the album was going to do due to the number of pre-orders they get, so they took the opportunity of discounting it to next to nothing to launch that Cloud service or whatever it’s called. So the 1.11 million was unforeseen and unpredicted, even by her own camp. She just happened to get very lucky. However, those of you who are saying Taylor Swift sold 1 mil without the deal, that’s not entirely true. She sold, or rather Amazon sold the album at one time for $2.99 its first week out. Right now, you can buy it on sale for $5.00. As I recall, they did a similar offer with the Black Eye Peas, but it’s not uncommon for Amazon to offer new MP3 releases and sometimes even CD releases at deep discounted prices, especially since they’re trying to compete with Itunes.



  46. 46

    Re: YoungTaurus – You proved my point… Thank you. Which means she still wouldn't have been close to selling a million copies and not be on the "million list".



  47. 47

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Read my first post… I said that…



  48. 48

    Re: e_manthey
    And you not answering my question proved mine.



  49. 49

    Re: e_manthey
    PS. I never said anything about the million list. I'm disputing the 700k and less figure.



  50. 50

    This is REDICULOUS! UGh I'm soooo over seeing Gaga on a pedistool! I used to love her, but this album is NO GOOD! THe only fun song on there in my opinions is Sheiße. The rest are slow and weird. She would have sold about 700,000 without the Amazon 99 cent bullshit… And 700,000 is VERY respectble thee days! For a person who doesnt like fame or money she's working her off these rediculous promotions. GagaVille? REALLY??? And Yes I am a Britney fan… And Britney already has one of these debuts under her belt, Oops sold about 1.3 million its first week WITHOUT REDUCED PRICE albums. This shit shoulda been on layaway.

    If Gaga would rather deal without the shit talk, then she should just fucking man up and do it right.



  51. 51

    Re: YoungTaurus – Even if you are right she still should have sold more!! Did gaga not say this was the album of the decade and she still did not beat britney first week sales record 1.3 million for oops i did it again.. Britney has held that record for over a decade and will continue to keep it!!!!



  52. 52

    WAIT A MINUTE,1.1 MILLION IS NOT EPIC YET….THERE ARE MANY ARTISTS WHO HAVE SOLD MORE IN THE FIRST WEEK….AND BY THE WAY-THERE ARE ALSO OTHER WEEKS & MONTHS…THE ALBUM MAY FLOP IN ITS SECOND WEEK AND THE TOTAL SALE IN HALF A YEAR MAY BE 2-3 MILLION,WHICH IS A FLOP…FOR EXAMPLE,MARIAH CAREY'S ”DAYDREAM” SOLD ABOUT 30 MILLION COPIES,THAT IS EPIC FOR A FEMALE SINGER



  53. 53

    Re: StinkyPerez – I care.

  54. Ops says – reply to this


    54

    I would first just like to say, thank you Perez (not that you'll ever read this) because I ALWAYS come to your site specifically to check out Lady Gaga news. I appreciate you posting about her as much as you do.

    Secondly, I would just like to say that even without the 400,000 from Amazing, selling 700,000 is still pretty good. Yes, other people have done better, yes it's not the best…but it is by no means terrible. Also, without the .99 sale, it would have been higher than 700,000 because a lot of those people would have bought the album for the full price.



  55. 55

    Re: barny – It's actually a fantastic album.



  56. 56

    Re: wiseguy – are you retarded, look at billboard, it sold 440,000 99cent downloads, billboard said it. It crashed amazon server haha. Your a gaga fan, i am too, but common she didn't deserve 1 mil, she found out she was gonna sell 850,000, and they put it for 99cent again haha, grats gaga, but damb 1mil isn't that serious.



  57. 57

    These numbers will and forever be tainted because she and her people got greedy.
    It's a fact that little monsters were gifting this 20 or more times at the .99 price level.
    Unfair, shady etc.
    I wish i could congratulate her fair and square but you just can't.

    58

    Her music should be able to 'put her on top.'



  59. 59

    Why are little monsters so fucking FAT? I don't get it. Does Gags have the FATTEST fans? It's fucking hysterical!!! LMAO!!!



  60. 60

    Tainted numbers don't impress me! She sold herself out!



  61. 61

    The album "Born this way" is not really good. Only five songs on it are decent which are Marry the night, Born this way, Heavy metal lover, Sheibe, and Edge of Glory. Lady Gaga worries too much about fame and she does not take time off to record meaningful music. Michael Jackson used to take long breaks to write his music. That is why all his albums were masterpieces. Unfortunately Lady Gaga writes her music while she is on tour. She has lost her genius because she is too tired promoting herself on TV and the radio and the internet. She needs to slow down.



  62. 62

    Re: YoungTaurus – out of curiousity…which 10 countries would that be?

  64. 64

    Re: fiona1978
    I agree with the whole taking time out to write an album thing. However, I think the album is good and not good at the same time LOL

  65. @v@ says – reply to this


    65

    How much per posting?



  66. 66

    Don't get it twister little trolls.. you didn't put Lady gaga on top.. Amazon did with that bullshit get this cd for 99 cents crap. She knew her album was a flop.. everyone saw that coming just look at how horribly its done every where else but AMAZON.. if you fucks were truly little monsters and real fans.. you woulda supported your "favorite" artist at full price and not thought twice about it. LMAO>. the worst fan base EVER.,



  67. 67

    Re: wiseguy – actually… your numbers are off.. Amazon sold 400,000 copies…. :)



  68. 68

    Okay, didn't I see this exact post last night? Was it really necessary to post it again?

    The Amazon promotion definitely made a huge difference in her sales. Yeah, some of those people would have bought the album at full price, but a lot of people wouldn't. I mean, I never buy CDs. But if Britney Spears or Rihanna were doing a 99cent album sale I would absolutely buy one- as would a lot of people who usually don't buy full CDs.
    If every artist did a similar promotion, you can compare them. But since they don't, it's not really fair to say that she sold that many. It's sort of cheating, in a way.

    Re: audiojosh – not to mention "Born This Way" is already #3 on itunes albums behind an album of ekulele songs & death cab for cutie haha & almost half a million were from amazon's 99 cent sale, how embarassing gaga



  70. 70

    WHO WANT TO BUY MY COPY….WILL SELL IT FOR .1 CENTS…..OK OK I WILL DANCE NAKED TOO…….ANY TAKER? PSSSSSSSSSSSSSST…… PSSSSSST…..



  71. 71

    lady gaga awesome! LOLZ!!!



  72. 72

    These numbers mean nothing considering Amazon was giving it away for 99 cents! I mean for that price people who were just curious about this thing called GaGa bought it! It's no indication whatsoever of the quality of the product, the insight of the artist, or the cultural significance of the artist. In fact, it's just plain old BS.



  73. 73

    Re: perez sniffs gagas ass daily! – your username is epic LOL



  74. 74

    For the record, Brit fans aren't the only ones pissed about this. For as upset as I am that Billboard allowed this, I'm happy it happened. It just made even more people hate Gaga. If I were say Taylor Swift, Katy, Rihanna or Brit, i'd be pissed. They get #1 albums the real way.

    Come and check out my anti-Gaga page, exposing the fake, insincere, outlandish twat for what she really is! Email me at gagablogger@rogers.com and I'll send you the URL. Perez won't publish it because he has his dick so far up Caca's ass.

    I am a tart!! I am deeply shallow!!! Lolz!!!



  78. 78

    Re: IVIV
    Yeah, how embarrassing to be behind Eddie Vedder and Adele and still have the third biggest selling album at Itunes at a $15.99 price. You are so right. Being in the top 3 of anything is just SO embarrassing. smh



  79. 79

    Re: fiona1978 – Just got to say we have all different thoughts what we think is good. I love all of the songs on the album and I really mean that. Even thou I don't think they are as good as The Fame/Monster, but I still love them all.



  80. 80

    Re: ladyloowho11
    Actually Amazon did slash the price for Taylor's CD, although not to 99c. And I love Rihanna and will defend her on these very boards, but she has never had a #1 album on Billboard.



  81. 81

    Re: IVIV
    Well, Billboard has confirmed, more or less, that BTW will remain at #1 for a second week, so I guess she isn't hurting that bad.



  82. 82

    Billboard say officially 60% were from the .99 ccent fire sale, lol



  83. 83

    Even without the album selling at .99 she would've done VERY well. She has enough confidence that her album will do well that's why she doesn't mind selling it at .99 because it would have been MUCH worse if she sold it for .99 and didn't reach 1 million. Let's see if other singers can sell it for .99 and only reach 70,00 debut week!



  84. 84

    i'm not really a gaga fan, but good for her! i think it's terrible album but to each his own. it's going to be really interesting to see where her album will be on the charts months from now…still didn't beat britney's oops i did it again (1.3mil) but good effort!;)



  85. 85

    Not only did BTW debut at #1 this week, but the Fame moved up to #16 this week.



  86. 86

    Re: Sweetness24 – they actually say without that she would have sold only around 700,000 copies.. which compared to many other artists out now and her old stuff- isn't really well. Shes already dropped to the #3 spot on the itunes charts…



  87. 87

    Re: Keeyth – My pizza was just delivered with 12 FREE COPIES OF BORN THIS WAY!!!!!! HOLY SHIT, A FREE COPY OF BTW WITH EVERY FUCKING SLICE!!!!!!!! LOLZ!!!!!

  89. 89

    My friend bought 15 copies in amazon; the same as buying one in iTunes… The shame… The shame on lady gaga… Lady Cheat Cheat…

    she deserves it. she was everywhere pouring it on us every day she works hard. salude.
