    you know what, am going to buy Applause….

  2. PEREZSHUTUP says – reply to this


    Perez, you are disgusting. I just bought 8 copies of APPLAUSE for Gaga's undying and unconditional support towards the LGBT community. Whatever your personal beef is, remember you're celebrity power is 1% hers, so start kissing some ass you fat fucking spic

  3. 3

    LOL! This is so pathetic. I hope that kid of yours doesn't take after you, Magilla.

    Watch, in two years it will be Nicki Minaj who Perez is ass kissing after Katy Perry realizes what a creep this monkey is, and dumps him.

    Still tricking people to click on katys video, says itunes goes to youtube, you are truly pathetic perez. How come you don't mention that Applause have over 9 million views and Roar is in the 7 millions. Funny how the two women are not feuding, only the butthurt little girl you are perez. If Katy as any integrity she will tell you to stop promoting her, it only hurts her, cause people you promote tend to fade into obviation.

  6. 6

    Mario, you are a pathetic, bullying, hateful, bitter old queen. No wonder Caca dropped you like a bad habit. Do you honestly think you have ANY power to do her any harm with the public or in the industry? I bet she laughs at you and your pitiful posts; I bet she's just gonna sit back, watching you make a fool of yourself, and will wait for you to turn on Katy Perry, too. You really are a loser.

  7. 7

    You also have to remember that you have to pre-order ARTPOP to get the single and you can buy Ms. Perry's Roar for $1.29. Kind of a big difference!

    enoughhhhhhh with the comparison already!!! i dont give a flying fuck about katy nor gaga but bitch ur annoying!

  14. 14

    Did you read that Gagas fans are giving free blowjobs to those who download Applause?? They got adds on graigslist

  15. guest says – reply to this


    God she is gross. like elvira barbie.

  16. 16

    I'm a fan of all three of you: the real prob here is that faithful readers who really enjoy your page (there are a lot of us) are a little bit turned off by BOTH of the songs, because now when you listen to them, you don't think of the artists, you think of this unfortunate feud. You should be holding artists up. We all have been betrayed at times, but…show biz is different. You don't have to be mean to each other. It's not professional, and professionalism is a virtue, and it also…the reason it's called professionalism is because it's been that way for centuries, and it brings in the cash for everyone. Saying this sincerely as a non snarky individual. For no reason, other than I am a big fan of pop culture, and don't like to see it…like this. Andy Warhol never feuded with anyone…this is why Interview is STILL standing.

  17. Alexis says – reply to this


    Re: tbone0726 – HAHA! Unbelievable. Perez has sunk a new low…if that was possible!

  18. Ivan says – reply to this


    KUDOS FOR KATY PERRY….Roar is much stronger than Applause…FOR SURE!!!….I was hoping for Gaga to blow my socks off with her new music and it just sounded like Same Ol Same Ol….It was her chance to Re invent herself…And she failed to do so….What scares me the most is Lady Gaga encouraging her fans to buy ONE SONG in multiples disguised in the form of a "Contest" to have 2 winners fly to London for Itunes Fest….

    Little Monsters everywhere are spending $100's for one song to win…Making her the money….And nothing for them….!!!!

  19. Manny says – reply to this


    You guys…
    Lady Gaga does not support the LGBT community. She could care less! Why don't any of you see it! I'm gay and I don't understand why anyone would think she cares. What she cares about is being no. 1 and sales. She's using you all with her "LGBT" bull she's feeding you to make you buy her records and you're all falling for it. I mean, come on…she's asking her fans to buy multiple copes of her single and whoever has the most will get to meet or whatever? I mean what is that?! That is sooo desperate! Not even JLO or Nicki Minaj or even Beyonce have to go that level! Its pathetic. And the fact that my fellow LGBT members don't see that saddens me. You are letting this woman use you!!!

    Congratulations Katy, you deserve it.
    You have proven without an ugly meat dress and make up, you are still fun and relevant.

  24. Ririyonce says – reply to this


    Cry Monsters….cry !!!! LOL

  25. 25

    The way you kiss Perrys butt annoys me so much, it makes me want to buy Applause.

  26. APPLAUSE IS A JOKE says – reply to this



  27. KARMA IS A BITCH says – reply to this


    This is a karma for Little Monsters for all bullies and damages they've done to other artists like Xtina, Britney, Rihanna, Madonna and list goes on. Serves Gaga's right because she always thinks by copying and pasting someone else's works, Global people will eat them all. I am laughing on the floor now.

  28. Truth Tea Told says – reply to this


    Applause is something you can find like in Ciara's B-side CD single.

  29. She needs Reality Chec says – reply to this


    I should say gaga is the one to be blamed. She should stop trying so hard to be madonna. There will always be one madonna. She'd better start to find her true self if she wants to be accepted once again. Stop trying to revolutionize pop music. You ain't that genius. You think people will just eat your shit?

    How is that bad Karma? The song is doing well in spite of Katy's success. If that's bad Karma, I want it to come my way.

  35. Tara Savelo says – reply to this


    Gaga the big fat Xerox is getting boring years by years.
    She is becoming mundane, insipid and very predictable yet common.
    This "look at me' singer is better take a time to rest and STFU.
    Overexpose is never a good thing.

  36. MC says – reply to this


    Re: Manny
    She is not asking people to buy multiple copies. That's not even possible. Idiots will believe anything they read.

  37. gaga sucks says – reply to this


    serves her right. she deserves reality check. dear stefani, you are not madonna or mj or david bowie. stop pretending you belong in legend niche. you are like disposable popstar that will come and go. your 5 minutes is up. next—————>

    Right. Like she needs career advice from you.

  40. Rooooooarrrrrrrrrrrrrr says – reply to this


    Katy Perry has just flushed Gaga's new song deep down to the ….Haus of A Reductive Clown!

  41. COPYCAT HER WAY says – reply to this


    "A Madonna impersonator" is struggling on iTunes with Applause? Well…well…well. LOL

  42. 42

    I like John Mayer and Katy's new duet song "Who You Love" just as much as "Roar". I like several of John's songs since I've been a fan of Eric Clapton and other bluesy rock artists over the years. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this new song becomes another top ten Billboard "Hot 100" hit for John and Katy … maybe even a #1.

    John wrote most of the song so I guess he would get the credit. The singing quality is good and I like John's guitar work and the horns on this song. They repeat "Who You Love" a few too many times but otherwise it is a solid song. I can see lots of couples playing this song at their wedding.

    Check out this new unofficial video for the song that somebody did on YouTube. It's sure looking like Katy and John are getting serious. Type in "John Mayer - Katy Perry Who You Love Song Leak - HQ"

  47. madonnaQUEEN says – reply to this


    and she's still struggling to sell single even though she poses nude, copies madonna, paints her face to be like clown? LOL. I guess shock value doesn't work on her anymore. Maybe she should try to copy MJ. Next

  48. QUEENKATY SLAYS GAGA says – reply to this


    Re: Tyler – "applause hasn't been officially released" on what planet? I thought i saw her name on itunes? LOL. little monster always cracks me up.

  49. Tara Savelo says – reply to this


    Re: ***

    Yes, Gaga needs my advice.

    First she need to stop looking at Madonna's old catalogs.
    Second, get a decent stylist and idea of her own.
    Third, slip into something comfortable…like coma! :(

    Re: ROARRRRRRRRRRRRRR – "The civilized man bows to idols of flesh and blood. The savage, to idols of stone and wood"

    ^^^ I used that as a signature to a username years ago, like almost 10 years ago, at a site viewed by quite a few modern pop tards including Perry. I first used the word "bow", and it was just an attempt to seem badass on a second annonymous account, with the icon of a Tusken Raider from Star Wars. It looked satanic to me, and obviously made an impact. I took "stone and wood" to simply mean, drums. OR any real musical instrument, really.

    All of you bitches who are fans of these talentless hacks, bow down…. to me. You inferior shits.

  52. It stinks says – reply to this

    Deep down, they're all talentless losers, who can't do a thing for themselves, and they know it. Nothing. They are literally useless. They ride on the coat tails of other people, who are in fact better than they are, put out a watered down inferior piece of garbage, call it theirs, and the thing is they know it.

    Perry is a loser.

    Re: Manny

    I could not agree with you more!!! She is a fake and a phony. She promotes love and acceptance and an anti-bullying message yet her little monster bully everyone who doesn't like her music. She goes to the gay bars in Hollywood because that is her demographic…she is too afraid to go to a st8 bar and play her music. This was all a publicity stunt to out do Katy Perry, she is an immature brat that needs to put some clothes on. If your music is so great then why all the theatrics Gaga?

    Re: MadonnaQueenofPop
    Those ads were probably placed there by Perez and his new butt buddy, Jemuel DaSilva. Meanwhile is still posting fake links that direct you to Katy's "Roar" YouTube page.

  60. Elias Haymandos says – reply to this


    coming from someone who was butt buddies with Lady Gaga…..you're a bitter washed up two faced queen.

  61. Observer says – reply to this


    Just an fyi from a casual observer of the site, Gaga's 'Applause' isn't even scheduled to hit the radio waves until August 19, while there are a few stations that are playing it early now, Katy Perry's 'Roar' is already fully released. Katy Perry released her single on a Monday, when typically titles are released on Tuesday, giving her a full seven days under her sales totals. Obviously these things need to be taken into consideration before anyone goes on a Katy Perry victory lap. As a lover of all different kinds of music, I can safely say that Lady Gaga's Applause is by far the better of the two singles. I don't know how many times I can hear Katy Perry sing the same exact song and pretend it is any different. I've been reading this site for a few years now, but all this odd negative energy being thrown by Perez toward Gaga, which is so obviously some silly personal tiff he has with her, has me on the verge of stopping. Whatever your issue is Perez I hope you'll get over it soon, you're compromising the fun of your website with your silly personal issues.

  62. TheTruthKid says – reply to this


    Perez stop being all over Katy's ass all the sudden because of Roar, you damn hypocritical asshole.

    Brave should be #1 in 60 countries, not Roar, Katy ripped it off Sara Barellies, before you Katy fans attack me, let me bring my reasons.

    - Brave was released in April, it was written way before Katy recorded "Roar" so whatever the fuck Dr. Z the plagiarizer is saying, it's pure bullshit. It takes a LONG time to release a song, that's why Brave was released in April, oh and let's not forget she has songs for a whole album to work on.

    - When you listen to Katy Perry's "Roar" she hits the high note when Sara hits the high note, and until Sara finished the high note, same with Katy.

    - Katy's "Roar" finishes 1 second off Sara's song Brave, wtf?

    - The beat, rhythm, and background and piano is Brave, it's been edited a lot, Katy has a huge team, and they still can't get it good as Brave.

  63. @v@ says – reply to this


    Comparing a hit to Gaga's sales is more pointedness. From your own quote in Mama June article: 'Cyber bullying is like the opposite of pumpkin pie. It's totally gross!'
    Fix the issue or get professional help on how to deal with it properly.

  64. Duarto Feliz says – reply to this


    Isn't this considered as BULLYING? Just imagine… In a not so distant future someone could bully your son the way you are bullying GaGa…

  65. idiot. says – reply to this


    Re: PEREZSHUTUP – buying the single 8 times will only count as buying it once. You might want to rethink your decision. lol

  66. 66

    Re: TheTruthKid – You sure sound like one of Gaga's "little monsters" to me. Do you monsters tend to be hypocrites?

    Didn't Lady Gaga's assistant sue her for not paying for her overtime? Gaga must be a slave driver and not very generous with the people on her team. Not cool at all when you are as rich as Gaga is. Katy Perry seems to really like her assistant. They seem like sisters. Her name is Tamara I think. She sometimes hangs out with Kristen Stewart. Katy even put Tamara in her 3D movie "Part of Me" last year.

    I just googled Lady Gaga and I found out that she is being sued by a French artist named Orlan for plagiarism over some art in Gaga's videos, etc. I remember reading about a Russian-American singer named Lina Morgana that Gaga used to work with that ended up killing herself over something. Gaga stole a bunch of her fashion ideas and music if I recall.

  67. RoarSucks says – reply to this


    Great! Now Perez is going to think since he championed the single for weeks on end that he had something to do with it.

  68. James says – reply to this


    perez also forgot to mention applause was released nearly two days after roar and it hasn't offically been released to all radios, that'll happen on the 19. no wonder it isn't beating roar but applause is #1 worldwide

  69. hculmn says – reply to this


    You do know that Applause is the #1 single on iTunes WW right? And even if Katy is beating Gaga, as a Little Monster, I say WHO CARES! Gaga loves Katy Perry & they go way back even before they blew up. Gaga isn't catty like you…she genuinely supports other artists and their success.

    I love Applause AND Roar…I'm just happy for new music & to have my little Gagaloo back :)

    Now go jump off of a cliff no one will miss you….lol jk ;P…… kinda

    Gaga's #1 on Itunes ….in Ghana. Big deal… LOL

  73. RoadWarrior says – reply to this


    Katy and GaGa are pretty much cut from the same cloth. Katy couldn't make it as a Christian singer, and GaGa couldn't make it as a Fiona Apple wannabe, so they both changed their names, got a lot of buzz generated about them when they first arrived on the scene as well getting a huge push from the record company, and they purposely appealed to the gays. Their music may not sound the same, but the two are really not that far different.

    Re: Ririyonce
    And who would that be? How presumptuous of you to think you know my musical tastes. I'm sure what I listen to would go over your head. Perhaps, Madonna should have clarified the meaning of reductive, rather than ask illiterates like you to look it up. That way you would know how to use it correctly. :)

  86. GiaNYC says – reply to this


    Gaga is obviously desperate as hell to get to number.

    Song leaks early, being sued by French artist and ex- employee, song with Cher leaks out, multiple videos released, begging Monsters for multiple downloading on Itunes, hijacking a gay bar and filming drag queens without their permission. (Just google it)

    The positive side of all this is that everyone is catching on to her. She is pop skunk!

    The decline has begun. :p

  90. Ririyonce says – reply to this


    Re: ***

    Why are you so pressed?

    If Applause was so good, why my opinion even matter? Katy's Roar has spoken with 450k in sales and sadly your brain stuck so deep in Gaga's ass till you cant even think that Applause stinks ? Sad.

    Btw, home school?

  91. Tara Savelo says – reply to this


    This generic nothing groundbreaking "Applaushit" has no legs. Katy Perry will dominate US Billboard Hot 100.

    "Fartpoop" will mark GaGa's worst selling album in her career and no chance of the Grammy.

    The only reason "Copycat This Way" reached more than 1 million in sales because of the 99cent in the USA.

    Please buy Katy Perry's and support Roar. If you hear Applause, run or switch off the radio.

    Thank you…

  97. JMedin says – reply to this


    I love both songs BUT
    Most people here insulting Gaga don't realize that Katy got a FULL SEVEN DAYS ahead of Lady Gaga, the fact that Applause went straight to the top 5 in less than 12 hours when it came out speaks numbers. Until August 19 we can't really say which song is more successful. On Youtbe, Gaga is beating Katy. SOOO technically Katy has more sales because her song came out, BEFORE Gaga's song. People forget her song came out Saturday. And Gaga's on Monday. Just stating the facts. You can search if you don't believe. Perez Hilton is a bitter chimpanzee looking thing that likes to start unnecessary nigs. Perez, you need a new job. Please. People like you influence the rest of these uneducated idiots.
