Have the music charts ever been anything other than a load of industry manipulated bullshiat?

No, which is why artist manipulated bullshiat is offensive to them.

But see, if artists are able to effectively communicate with fans and promote their own work, Billboard won't have a job anymore!

See how the internet is killing 'Murika?
 
2013-08-22 01:22:27 PM
At least she's not recommending that her fans unfortunately stick their heads into golf-ball dimplers
 
2013-08-22 01:29:32 PM
I didn't see anywhere in her tweet where she said 'click it and leave' or 'make playlists that repeat the video dozens of times'.  She just tweeted her fans that she had a video out and asked them to share it, how is that gaming the system?  I'd expect any musician with a twitter account to use it to promote their new song.
 
2013-08-22 02:13:10 PM
Man, they really don't like her.
 
2013-08-22 02:16:46 PM
I've got a video she could watch, if ya know what I mean, and I think you do.

know what is really funny?

Katy Perry's new song is outselling GaGa's by a factor of 2.

said it before.  i say it again.

Katy Perry is the pop star GaGa wishes she was.

/the song, Roar, is actually really good, for a slightly fluffy anthem.

sadly....  somewhat.  What is worse...  I don't even know why.  I am a farking metal head.  I just...  I don't like GaGa.  She has immense talent, and yet squanders it on bullcrap.  It is like a goddamned 80's Tiffany\Debbie Gibson (it was always Tiffany, BTW) thing.

That's awesome.  Still, I'd recommend complete detachment.  Nothing she does will ever impact any of us, so whatever.  I think it's great that she does whatever the hell she wants, while ms perry strikes me as the type of girl that'll do whatever it takes to get ahead and that attitude just rubs me the wrong way.

hooray for celebrity totems!

/goddamned voice of an angel.

//saw Katy live a couple years ago.  She was just brilliant live.  No damned autotune, no ridiculous dancing (she even made fun of herself for not being able to dance), she played her guitar and sang.  That is really why I like her so much.  I am a sucker for a girl that can sing and play guitar, and Katy does both incredibly well.  It is also why I love Lisa Loeb so gaddamned much.

Really?  Uh, she's definitely not the pop of the Tiffany/Debbie Gibson.  She's more like Madonna without the sexual provocation and with a better level of talent.

Admittedly, I thought her shtick was funny for/after her first album. It's been done before, certainly, but it'd been awhile since the pop charts were being dominated by a meta pop star intentionally being absurd for the sake of it.

I've actually tuned her out since, but if that's still what she's doing....meh. You made your point, darling.

Oh, not denying she can sing...but she also has that air of the girl who'll marry to get ahead, divorce to stay in the news and put her tits out there just because her fans like her tits.

The feeling I get from gaga is more of a "Let's see how stupid and silly I can get and still be taken seriously."

Who, GaGa?  She may have more raw talent than Madonna, but she hides behind so much Madonna cloned crap, who could tell?

i dunno.  she was with that british fop and now with Mayer.  I'd have to say she is more like the talented party girl that rebelled from strict upbringing, but is really a little Christian girl at heart, so she will never have any real controversy.

Madonna was never talented. She was a businesswoman first and a musician second. The only thing she was good at was surrounding herself with the best people she could find.

Except not.  For all her flaws and mistakes, Madonna was a legitimate success in her time, to the point of rivaling Michael Jackson.

TT was just a little slut who got on TV for a little while.

Lady Gaga is subverting the dominant paradigm by creating a music video as a wry social commentary on the practice of creating a music video.  She blows away your whole weltanschaung by promoting that very same video thereby juxtaposing promotion with the very idea of promotion.  I think it's pretty obvious that she is a genius.

Another ARTISTIC TRIUMPH for GAGA!

I won't deny she has talent, but the songs themselves are pretty bland. She dresses like she's some kind of avant-garde artist but the music is just the same nice generic pablum you would expect from any pop musician.

lol.  not quite.  she never hit superstardom, but she does ok.  I saw her a couple years ago at an intimate show in huntsville.  It was just her, her guitar, and a small venue that was packed with fans.  She played, bantered with the crowd, and then hung out in the lobby after the show to meet and greet fans and sign stuff.  She signed two cd's for me (she seemed a bit perturbed when I presented her with my original CD single of "Stay" to sign, she said to me "oh...  you have THIS one", sorry Lisa, I didn't realize you would be hanging out and so all I had with me were the "Stay" single and the "I Do" single), let me take a picture and was just very nice.

Also, her new album was fantastic.  As they almost always are.

I don't think any of them in the 80's could REALLY sing.  Tiffany was ok, but her songs and production were just generally superior, plus her voice sounded "different".  Debbie, while talented, was just more of the same.
