    Using someone's death to promote something? Gaga's impact is never ending I guess

    She's not using him. She's literally dedicating her post to him. Y'all are doing too much.

    The only shady thing she's done this era is be a dick to that Kris Wu guy back in November for charting well and then having Scooter contact Billboard to invalidate his sales cause his fans used VPN to buy his album; I think that was unfair and uncalled for and nobody would be saying a word if people used VPN to buy Ariana's record etc But otherwise she's just been playing fairly, doing her business, etc

    Beyoncé released If I Were a Boy and Single Ladies together (with videos). They hit #3 and #1. Rihanna released Only Girl first and What’s My Name? immediately after to the point the second single hit #1 before the first one actually did (with videos). Your attempts are weak as FUCK. Ariana is smashing and that’s fact, no matter how you slice it.

    Just shut yo old, annoying, bitter ass up already. The more attempts you drag, the more I worry for your sanity because someone certainly should not be this delusional

    The only reason most people 'connect' colours with albums is because of the album cover.

    With Urban taking the throne in around 2016, it's had a non-stop foot on the neck of the music industry (deservedly so, there's been some AMAZING rap/trap/r&b that's come out of this era) until recently, and if anything, well, this week. This week's Hot 100 top 10 includes about 7 pop songs, 4 of which occupy the top 4 of the chart, with Ariana's historic 1-2-3 punch of 7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored, and Thank U, Next, and Halsey's Without Me. We haven't seen this much pop in the top 10 since 2015 or so I'd say, and with Ariana's current reign in the music industry, Gaga's ASIB blowout, other pop gals like Dua, Halsey, and Normani gaining power, and a significant amount of main pop girls having upcoming and highly anticipated releases, I'd definitely say pop is making a large resurgence. What do you think?

    If you had asked me a year ago, three months ago, or hell even a week ago if I thought she was a legend in the making, I would've said not yet, give her time, and that she is simply the main pop girl currently. However, by tying the record set by The Beatles 55 years ago (albeit they occupied the top 5 rather than just the top 3), and being the first solo artist, male or female, in the entire history of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart to occupy the top 3 positions simultaneously, there's no denying her power in the music industry. To put it into perspective, and not discrediting anyone or getting brave as most of these people carry a catalog of records and multitudes of #1's, but no other current force in the music industry like Drake, Post, Adele, Taylor, or Rihanna or legends like Mariah, Celine, Whitney, MJ, Madonna, or Cher have ever done this. Again, don't come for me, I was just stating a fact to make a point, most artists here have more #1's than Ariana, legends are legends for a reason, and I wasn't making an attempt to compare quality. I honestly think she's had a historic moment in the music industry that provides a good argument towards the answer being yes, she is a legend in the making, this moment marking that.

    Don't call everything you don't understand as an act of "manipulation", it's what you call audience's DEMAND. And currently, it's Ariana's music they are consuming. The Billboard Hot 100 chart has it's own formula, and it changes every time, and it's COMPLICATED. It ranges from different criterias like: streaming services, YouTube views, plus pure sales. Another complication is the variation of music stores and streaming platforms, there's iTunes, Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon, Deezer, etc. And then there's another complication of difference between free streams and paid streams (most probably from premium accounts) Clearly every platforms has its different demography, and every demography has different taste. Ariana just put out an entire album, and of course different demography will have their own different demands that will top their specific charts. About the earlier predictions, I advise you to not assume it's accuracy to be 100% real. It's called a PREDICTION for a reason. No one knows the exact Hot 100 formula, and it changes every time, and as time goes by, his formula's percentage of inaccuracy will be only going up. Or maybe you can go the delusional stans' way and accuse Ariana and Scooter of paying Billboard.

    By Drake, Taylor, and most recently and more frequently Ariana, who are all pillars in the music industry currently, so your point is? Also, of course pure sales are harder to get when everything is online, no one's discrediting The Beatles who actually held the top 5 simultaneously back in '64, it's just historic that Ariana did that, and set a precedent that had never been set before as a solo artist, male or female. The fact that no one has done that in 55 years, through the peak of pure sales and the surge in streaming in the past couple years (and I hear you saying that streaming is peaking, when in reality, it started reaching its prime 2 or so years ago), shows her power whether you like it or not. Just give credit where it's due and move on.

    "I’ll never forget the last thing Karl said to me just before he passed. He said, 'Gaga, it would be a tragedy of epic proportions if you don't win the Oscar for Best Original Song. Nobody deserves it more than you.' And that meant so much to me coming from someone who I’ve idolized since I was a thirteen year old Italian girl." - Lady Gaga

    Eh arguably mostly pop and R&B with some urban sprinkled over, I said emerging, not taking over. Of course the sound is gonna stick for a while, considering a lot of urban-poppier crossovers were popular in 2015-16 when urban music started taking over.

    I really can't believe the history Ariana's made today. I never would've thought the red-haired wack girl that could sing her ass off on Victorious would've grown into the extremely talented and successful artist she is today. She really is that girl, huh.
