    I wouldn't be shocked if her new album doesn't do as well as the last one. I think I read something about how many of her fans were "disappointed" by the single. She said that she was going to make two videos for that song to ease their disappointment. O_o

    Lady Gaga is in a terrible place currently. She basically put words in Madonnas mouth on the Jay Leno show, and then Madonna called her out for it.

    Big issue? Not really. It just goes to show that she wants to be Madonna.

    She's making two videos because there are two versions of the song. The proceeds from the second version will go to an anti-bully charity. Anyway, the new song has broken tons of records since it was released, so that's a clear sign of things to come.

    Oh, and I finally got around to listening to the second version of Katy's E.T. I actually liked it. I didn't know if I'd like that part with Kanye singing, but it was actually decent.

    How can Born This Way be less successful than her past Albums? The first single off the album broke records. The only reason I think most fans were disappointed was because of the super hype the song was getting. She said in an interview that at first, "Born This Way" wasn't going to be the first single, "Marry The night" was. But she decided to take a risk with "Born This Way" since she said it would be easier to ease into the album that way. From this I'm actually getting the feeling that "Born This Way" is one of the weaker songs from the Album.

    So yeah, I think the album will be a success. Also, reposting "Government Hooker" Preview.

    ALSO. New Britney Till The World Ends. Not that great a song IMO. Still nice and catchy though.

    The rest of the album is supposed to be pretty different from the Born This Way single(if I remember one of her interviews correctly), so I'm guess people will like the album more once they hear all of it.

    Though I kind of agree that the megahype around Born This Way hurt the song. There's going to be disappointment any time people get that hyped up about something. :/

    I, as a fan, definitely was disappointed following the overhype that Born this Way received. I was expecting something out-of-this-world and pretty much just got a boring pop song.

    Born This Way is awesome, the lyrics are inspirational, I'm glad Gaga took a risk.

    It already sold 1,200,000 copies in 2.5 weeks BTW already surpassed HIAM.

    I heard "Judas" is confirmed for 2nd single.

    Personally, I think I like Hold It Against Me just as much as I like Born This Way. Hold It Against Me is an awesome dance song and Born This Way has a good message to it, so both are winners in my book. And yeah, I heard that Judas is the next single from Gaga's new album. The way people are talking about it is getting me excited, but I really should stay neutral, just so that I don't get over excited like I did for BTW.

    I think "Till the World ends" is a much better single than HIAM (she continues to follow the tradition that her second singles are always better than the first). It sounds like it would be a great tour song^_^

    I'm disappointed with Gaga overall. I'm tired of her crazy and over the top shenanigans. She doesn't need them to be successful and it's just getting annoying. Agree that BTW was hyped way to much. Yeah it has a good message, but overall it's just a normal song. I'll have to hear more of record tracks before I make my decision on how I feel about the record. Born This Way and You and I are both meh songs to me.

    As for Britney, absolutely loving Till The World Ends. It's way better than Hold It Against Me and I love HIAM. Breaking the replay button. Also, Britney did a 13 minute interview about the album with Ryan Seacrest today. You can tell she's getting more confident with her career. Just the tone of her voice compared to the Circus interviews is drastically different. So excited for Femme Fatale.

    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    Finally watched the Born This Way clip, saw it on a tv channel last night. Thought some parts were a little bit... creepy, but I guess that's Gaga for you, with all the things she does and ect.
    Heard Britney's Till The World Ends on the radio yesterday, it doesn't sound too bad, I like it.

    So, can we talk about other songs, or are we all just gushing and squeeing over Blonde Americans?

    Oh, OK, it's just that everyone was talking 'bout Lady Gaga. But that seems logical, considering, there's no other pop albums out nowadays.

    Born This Way has started to grow on me. I figured it was only a matter of time.

    Till The World End has me sold on Femme Fatale. HIAM was alright but not great, but TTWE is just amazing <3

    Born This Way is cheese. It's literal cheese. The lyrics sound like a halmark card, yeah she takes a risk, but she does it in the single cheesiest way ever and it's just kinda bland.

    I like it though, in a so bad it's good kinda way

    I love 'Born This Way' but I might agree about the album sales at this point.

    Have yet to hear TTWE by Britney. Edit: Yeah, TTWE is actually a bit better than HIAE.

    To be honest, I never really liked Lady Gaga or Britney Spears much. (Especially not Gaga.) But have any of you heard of Jessie J? She's a new artist who's only released a few singles and 1 album, but quite a lot of her stuff is getting radio play and I think she's gonna go big.

    Currently trying to fix the mistakes I've made.

    I live in the UK and Jessie is proper huge here! Weirdly, I had never liked 'Price Tag' and I like all her other songs from the album.

    To be fair, I'm not a Britney fan, but I do enjoy her songs in general.

    I've heard some of her songs, but I don't really like them. Some of them are kind of catchy, but others are just borderline generic. I heard she wrote songs for people like Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, which is interesting. I honestly rarely ever take the time to listen to new artists in the pop genre, but I took a gamble this weekend and listened to some new songs. There aren't any that I'm particularly excited about, however.

    NONE of this years music has appealed to me. Older stuff like AC/DC and the like is much MUCH better.
