    I did not like anything racist. The most "racist" thing he posted was saying "get over slavery." And I didn't like it. And prior to liking any of his posts I never saw him except in the Madonna section.

    You are so fucking funny. I really did lol at these two posts. You know you're shading him right? lol STOOOOPPPPPPP!!!!!! I'm heaving!!! Please, don't crack. I don't want my last memories of your nosediving into lunacy.
  8. 400,000 albums sold in a month. if that doesn't spell flop, idk what does.
  9. According to Bloomberg. https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/pop-star-ranking/2020-july/lady-gaga-dethrones-bad-bunny-as-the-world-s-biggest-pop-star.html The article reads: "Lady Gaga has returned to the pinnacle of pop music. Gaga was the biggest pop star in the world this past month, according to Bloomberg’s Pop Star Power Rankings, dethroning Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny after a three-month run. Gaga surged to the top thanks to interest in her new record “Chromatica,” which was the best-selling album in the U.S. this past month. Gaga sold more than 400,000 copies in a month when no other artist topped 300,000. Its lead singles “Stupid Love” and “Rain on Me” lifted Gaga on Spotify, where she was the most-listened-to artist in June, as well as on YouTube, where her videos racked up more than 188 million views (fifth most). “Chromatica” is Gaga’s first proper dance record in almost a decade, and her first true streaming breakthrough as a solo artist. Gaga started her career when physical albums still made up a majority of overall sales, and broke through when iTunes was the main way to release music online. After starting her career with three straight dance pop records, she made an album of jazzy duets with Tony Bennett, and followed that up with “Joanne,” a blend of country and soft rock. While both albums were well-received by critics, neither was as big a hit as her earlier up-tempo work, which would have played better on Spotify’s pop and dance playlists." At the top where she rightfully belongs.

    The Fame. Enough said.
  11. people really love using the word "classic" nowadays huh. I agree with this, but you guys say this because Gaga really didn't reach the heights of hit-making like Ester Dean did. Gaga hit it big with her music and so her label's focus wasn't on her writing music for other artists, it was writing music for herself (like how Mariah Carey did). Ester Dean unfortunately did not hit it big as a solo artist and was relegated to being a songwriter full time. So Dean got to focus on solely writing music. It's true that Gaga's songs are very distinct and fit her style more than anyone. But She has shown the ability to write more universally appealing songs. Telephone was written for Britney originally. And she also wrote Quicksand, which is a fabulous song. She also wrote a song for Michael Bolton and the melody is one of her best. The chorus is spectacular.

    This vs. This Anyone who really thinks Dupe Peeps has an edge over Ava Max is deaf. Ava has range and dynamics, meanwhile Dupa Peeps has trouble not breaking while talk-singing. Both have terrible support cause when they do minimal choreography they are out of breath. Ava Max has much higher potential. I can see her having a vocal glow up like Gaga's.

    Ava Max has the better voice, look, vision. The criticism that she is too similar to Gaga is actually what makes her interesting. She has the same conviction and fire that made Gaga stick out. Or enough of it that you can't help but pay attention to her. Dua Lipa is very much one of the boys (of pop). Great music but basic as fuck and not at all interesting, but she is really pretty. And Rihanna proved that being pretty is a talent. On stage she is like a nice warm puff, she gets you all warm and fuzzy and ready for bed. Ava Max wakes you up and gets you ready for cardio, she is caffeine to Dua's THC.
  14. You disliked my post why? Anyways, ED hasn't had a massive hit in a couple years now. Perhaps she is working on Rihanna's album as we speak. Gaga is fresh off a #1.
  15. Who is the better songwriter and why? Here are a couple examples of their best work: Ester Dean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e82VE8UtW8A (Rude Boy by Rihanna) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JipHEz53sU (Super Bass by Nicki Minaj ft. Ester Dean) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw (Firework by Katy Perry) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce2_k0LaE7E (S&M by Rihanna) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBxt_v0WF6Y (Where Have You Been by Rihanna) vs. Lady Gaga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Abk1jAONjw (Just Dance) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bESGLojNYSo (Poker Face) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrO4YZeyl0I (Bad Romance) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPJjwHAIny4 (Shallow) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoAm4om0wTs (Rain On Me) Fun facts: both were born in the same year 1986 (year of the hit makers apparently). They are half a month apart, Ester Dean is younger than Gaga by about 2 weeks. This means both are aries. Both were signed on as songwriters first: Ester Dean to Interscope and Gaga to Def Jam (testament to their abilities). Gaga got dropped though, flop ;). Both have written songs for Britney Spears. Ester has given mad props to Gaga on two occasions: first in a this interview: https://singersroom.com/content/2009-10-15/ester-dean-emotional-journey/ and secondly in a billboard interview: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/471195/ester-dean-talks-solo-career-writing-sm-and-firework. In the first interview Ester stated: So if you all decide to gang up on Gaga, Ester Dean is more than well aware of what Gaga can do and she respects and admires her. edit: sorry videos wont embed. oh well.

    Celeb News

    You know damn well interscope pulled her in by her wig, sat her ass down, and told her "listen bitch, you want to continue being the pop Megastar you are you better act like it and sell these fucking fragrances hoe. We made you, and we can just as easily unmake you." And now she is back on the illuminati's good graces. Because its absolutely hypocritical of her to do this and get involved in the make up industry. Personally, I think she got scared by something that she is investing in things that will secure her future financially. And her boyfriend is proof of it. He is an investor and very successful entrepreneur, he is probably guiding her. I don't blame her and it's smart. I just hope she's not compromising who she is. Maybe she was in an unhealthy headspace when she first started doing fragrances and now she feels better. Who knows. Either way I support her, it's not like she did a 180 on her political views. This is just business per usual. Get your check Gaga and strut it to the bank.

    Do we really need to say it?
  18. how dead were you when you heard The Fame Monster? like i can't imagine being completely oblivious to who gaga is and then hearing the masterpiece that is The Fame Monster and not having a crisis or meltdown. those of us who got hooked on her from the fame knew what we were in for when The Fame Monster came out. but someone not knowing anything about her and being hit with that. wow.
