Madonna: 30 years into her career, 55 year old, came from a 4 year hiatus - was panned as a commercial flop by the gheys. ari7

Gaga: 12 years into her career, 34 year old, came from a massive Bradley Cooper project - is being celebrated as a big win by the gheys. ari7

Now make no mistake, Madge is past those days and her last record flopped, but it's interesting to observe how drastically the standards have changed. ari7

 

Or maybe a $350m grossing, independently Golden Globe award winning era is a flop by queen of pop standards while Gaga doing decent with no competition whatsoever is fantastic for the jester of pop standards and it's internalized in us  ari7

Wouldn't it make more sense to compare with Madame X's sales since it's released dated closely together? jj1

Sweetie. The obsession. It's gotta stop. 

In other news Chromatica has outperformed all predictions thus far. 

Global smash has landed.

Will she add more bundles next week (like she did this week) so she won’t fall off the top 10? Stay tuned

She bundled valid ticket sales, not thongs and jockstraps.

And not for several weeks

People stream today. If Spotify and Apple Music were as prevalent back in 2012 as they are in 2020 then these numbers would be way lower and more comparable to Chromatica’s bey2

the irony when literally the only reason MDNA was able to snatch such high sales was due to bundles. Why else do you think it broke the record for biggest 2nd week drop during its time.

I never said otherwise. Just that it's ironic that you're using bundles as an attack when it's the reason your fav had a big first week + the biggest 2nd drop in Billboard history. Whats not clicking?

Yes tickets that costed a fortune from the top tour of 2012. Not tickets Gaga’s team is refusing to refund to because they wanted those BB points. 

 

Also 740,000 - 185,000 (bundle sales) = 555,000 

Still higher than Chromatica and it did 180k globally 2nd week with no bundles (unlike Gaga who is still adding thongs and dildos)

Not sure if you can do bundles in Luxembourg or Estonia, but either way, my point still stands: don't use bundles against Gaga when your fav/MDNA benefited from them as well.
