Born This Way album is out of top 20 on Billboard 200

Disappointing sales after the first week, i don't think it will outsell The Fame.
Total album sales in the US after four months are 1.79 million copies.
What went worng?

Hyped too much, cheap sale of album which eventually cost the longevity of the album sales. plus what's she doing nowadays? She's almost disappeared after her appearance in the award show.

A Gaga hating thread.

Mediocre pop. Her first three singles were actually good.

Haters gonna hate, but some of the songs were quite good. I would not call it a mediocre album. Maybe the initial marketing was too over the top.

What is she doing? She just did an hour long concert last night closing out the IHeartRadio Mega 2 Day Concert in Las Vegas, also performed 2 songs with Sting.

She'll be singing for Bill Clinton's Birthday, she has a fashion video coming out during Paris' Fashion Week, she will be going to India late in October to perform, she leads the MTV EMA's. Cher has a song coming out that Gaga wrote and will be dueting on. So I'd say she's doing pretty good.

SERENA 21 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So 1.2 million copies in the first week and 0.59 in the remaining 12-13weeks ?

Still the #2 selling album of the year in the US. Obviously disappointing by her standards, but still has to be considered a success in context with her peers.

Wait another 6 months or so and you will be able to buy the album for 50 pence at the Music and Video Exchange. Although speaking personally I would rather spend my 50 pence on something that is going to give me a bit more pleasure, like a chocolate bar.

These numbers look good to me considering we're living in an age where Internet has turned buying music records into an act of volunteering.

Adele sold more than three millions copies of 21 in the US alone with no hype.
You would expect GaGa to sell at least more than two millions at this point.

The trouble is that everything she does (new videos, performances, crazy outfits, etc.) is always so out-there in an attempt to be incredible that it's lost its shock factor.

I do like some of the songs on her album, but I'd much prefer just to listen to them rather than see her on TV.

Yeah the funny thing is that she is one of the very few who can entertain just by singing and playing the piano.
