Katy is expected to sell much more than Gaga in the US during the debut week.

By the way, Gaga retweeted a "cheat" playlist for Applause views

"roar" is so dreadful that i'm forced to vote for "applause", though that's not saying much. this time around, even the lyrics and the video are a bit crap. for someone who always claims to be pushing the boundaries, lady gaga's music is stupefyingly bland and run-of-the-mill.

combining "pop" and "art" worked better on this record:

They're both kinda lame but Applause is slightly less lame I guess.

Kity Purr's "songwriting" is so ridden with cliches that it is embarrassing.

Nice to see Applause is handily winning the poll!

First week sales for both in the US arrived
Katy's Roar sold 557,000 and Gaga's Applause sold 218,000.



I guess this another era of radio and digital sales dominance for Katy.
As for Gaga, who knows...

Re: Pop Diva face-off: Lady Gaga vs. Katy Perry - which single do you prefer?

While Applause is growing on me .... there is still something really self indulgent about it that is going to be hard for the public to connect to I think. I get that the song is meant to be about Gaga living for her fans "applause" but most people whether they admit it or not want the song to be able to apply to them/have themes that they can relate to in their own lives - and the general person can't relate to being a superstar and having people scream/applause for them - I mean that's how I look at it anyway, I find it self indulgent and I think its only going to be popular with hardcore fans. It's not doing well in Australia at all. ROAR on the other hand - most people can relate to being undervalued/not having a voice etc - hence it is #1 in my country right now

I actually think Applause is a better sounding song with better hooks/production and all of the rest but yeah, I certainly don't connect to the song and I know many others don't either. While I appreciate Gaga is trying to be this musical legacy and make "art" etc I think she still needs to remember the music is for us not her.

Yes, Katy may get more sales from 13 year olds that don't know how to use torrents, but Gaga will be collecting critical acclaims, and the awards that matter (not including People's Choice Awards which seems to be the only awards Katy is able to win)
