It is more difficult for Gaga to have hits

Here is the real reasons why it is more difficult for Gaga to have hits compared to some of her contemporaries.

First of all she has never been a true trend chaser. Right from the start and up until Joanne, she has always been making pop music that sounds different and or that has unique themes and lyrics. Many here claim that The Cure proves she is chasing hits, but even if she was, that is literary one song and not a constant chase of trends every era. There is a reason why many here were surprised by how safe The Cure was. Next, throughout her career she has directly tackled controversial issues that include religion, sexuality, and feminism. This was bound to turn off many people. She also doesn't have the sex appeal that other pop stars do. In fact sometimes she deliberately makes herself look weirder or grotesque on purpose. Finally, she always releases whatever she wants even if it might fail. This is not the same as not caring for success. She wants to be successful, but she wants the success doing what she likes.

But Madonna did all that and more yet still managed to score hits for 26 years straight?

Gaga could release an Urban song tomorrow and it would go #1 for 10 weeks so no.

Gaga stopped getting hits because she got confused after BTW flopped. She doesn’t know what to do.

I didn’t know having a song discounted for 6 months and performing it +20 times on TV is not caring for the charts.

Million Reasons is your typical generic piano ballad and most of her singles were radio friendly but maybe I’m not hearing what her stans are hearing

Gaga doesn't even have 10 years of a career yet. How can you predict she will not have any more hits? Plus what I said pertains specifically to Gaga and the current music scene.

I think it’s the material. She needs to do better to get a big hit. Though it doesn’t really matter if she is happy with it, she served one of my fave albums of all time already so I’m satisfied.

Well she released a trendy “tropical” pop song with no promotion and it went platinum and top 40 on billboard so who knows

How do you know she is "confused"?

The woman has been chasing trends and copying other people her entire career. The desperation with which her fans want to convince people to accept their constructed narrative is honestly disturbing.

Idk, Perfect Illusion and MR were definitely not radio-friendly.

She literally doesn't care that's why she hasn't had a US hit since MR, and WW hit since Applause

She doesn't care about hits. She is beyond that. She cares about quality.
