I think the music just didn't connect with the masses because she drifted too far away from the sound the general public and her fans grew to love. But I love that she took a risk. (which is more than can be said for all of her peers) She made a album that she wanted to make. It's not going to see the same success as TFM but it's still sold really well. I do think the 99 cent deal turned many off as well because it seemed desperate.
Her next album is going to be massive though. She isn't going anywhere no time soon.
How many times has this been discussed?
Anyways sometimes I believe Gaga had to much say in her career this era. Need I say more?
She had 3 singles and one promo single before the album was even released also not to mention almost a year passed and we are just getting info for the tour.
When the BTW ball comes to the US and once tickets go on sale we will all see whether or not she can imitate the same success as her previous tour which I believe is a true testament to her star power.
BTW in my opinion is the best album Gaga has done but I'd be lying to say if I wasn't biased. I LOVE Gaga but its no secret that she wasn't as successful as her first album. Obviously I hope she finds her way back to the top because I do love her but I do think she is her own worst enemy
