Lady Gaga Blames ‘ARTPOP’ Flop on ‘Those Who Have Betrayed Me,’ Begs Fans’ Forgiveness

Lady Gaga Blames 'ARTPOP' Flop on 'Those Who Have Betrayed Me,' Begs Fans' Forgiveness

“Millions of dollars are not enough for some people,” Gaga wrote. “They want billions. Then they need trillions”

Lady Gaga asked for forgiveness from her “monsters” — and even from her album, “ARTPOP” — in a post justifying the delay in the release of her “Do What U Want” music video.

She also explained away all of her recent failures. Spoiler alert: they aren't her fault.

The mea cupla came via Gaga's fansite littlemonsters.com, where the former “Mother Monster” and apparently current “Goddess of Love” — to which she also changed her name on Twitter — was equal parts remorseful and accusatory.

Gaga pointed the finger over her lackluster 2013 at those who have “betrayed” her, accusing now-former team members of mismanaging her time and health and caring more about money than quality.

“Millions of dollars are not enough for some people,” Gaga wrote. “They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more.”

Specifically regarding the “Do What U Want” video delay, the songstress claimed that she was only given one week to plan and execute the piece — the same amount of time she was allotted for “Applause.” She called the short window “devastating,” adding, “I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for [fans].”

Gaga lamented that, following a surgery, she was too sick, tired and sad to fight back, bashing those in her corner for not maintaining her best interests. “I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most,” she said.

But Gaga promised the flopped album — which sold just 258,000 units in its debut and had the biggest second-week drop of last year — would have a resurrection of sorts.

“The next few months of ‘ARTPOP’ will truly be its beginning,” the pop star penned. “Because those who did not care about ‘ARTPOP's’ success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition.”

    Hopefully,it means replacing R. Kelly's vocals on “Do What U Want” with Christina Aguilera's.

  • Rural Modernist

    That statement is beyond embarrassing. She made a crap record with a ridiculously overhyped amateurish rollout and it failed. She needs to look in the mirror for the reason why it was a flop instead of blaming others. I can't believe anyone thought she was the new Madonna. Her sad career trajectory is more akin to Paula Abdul's.

    • Shannon

      Well Madonna didn't exactly have a perfect career, she had a few “flop” albums (Erotica, American Life). I don't think Gaga is over, she's not the biggest pop female at the moment but I wouldn't say she's done. Maybe ARTPOP is her Erotica, she'll have to be very careful about her next album.

      • LHakaLH

        please don't compare the masterpieces that are “Erotica” and “American Life” to “Artflop”

      • amp69

        Artpop is no where near the brilliance of Erotica or as daring as American Life

        • Stephen

          Completely agree. I have been a Madonna fan all my life and even tho the critics did not like Erotica I thought it was one of her best albums. I liked Gaga first two albums but she will never be as big as Madonna.

          • Whitfield McRory Palmer

            Critics actually liked Erotica. While not one of her best sellers, I'd hardly call it a flop. Lady Gaga's problems go beyond Artpop. Her repertoire is monotonous and her lyrics are like cryptic nursery rhymes.

        • vrocco

          “Erotica” was over-hyped and became a critics’ target before it was even released, yet many of those same critics later admitted they really liked the album once the hype faded and they listened to the songs…

          The same was not true for “American Life”. The album's only Top Ten hit, “Die Another Day”, was written and released earlier for a James Bond movie, and nothing else on the album was even remotely as interesting, including the cliched title track and “Hollywood”. The album hit #1, but faded fast, much like MDNA (which also has more good songs than “American Life”)…

          ArtPop hasn't completely run its course, and could score another hit with “Fashion!” or “Gypsy”, or maybe a brand-new song that's stapled onto the inevitable Extended Version. But even if no other single is successful, it's already had a better chart performance than “American Life”, but may not surpass “Erotica”, and it falls between them as both Art and Pop, imho…

          • #Intelligence :P

            “Fashion!” or a XXX Dreams remix with Rihanna could still salvage the burned PopTart…Gags is just not used to having viciousness being directed towards her.
            #GrowSomeFangsGags

            Edit: Necropodonna needs to stop singing songs meant for a 20 year old…leave that to Rihanna, Katy, and Gags. ;D

          • amp69

            You really should give American Life another try. “Nothing Fails, “Nobody Knows Me” and “Love Profusion” are some of the best pop songs she's ever written.

          • ixbaar

            totally agree. American life is a very good album with a well crafted original sound (acoustic/electro) crafted with French DJ Mirwais.

          • lili89

            Excuse me, have you ever listened to american life?….The album floped in the US; and you know why; but it was a big success in many other countries: American life, nothing fails, hollywood, die another day, and love profusion were HITS. I can't say the same about artpop; it floped not because it's daring; but because it simply sucks :/

          • Whitfield McRory Palmer

            I'm dating myself, but I was a very clear and lucid 20-year-old when Erotica was released. Many critics loved it and it sold quite well.

  • duff227

    Making a bad situation worse.

  • Jake

    Flop album still ended at number 1 in over 15 countries and is the second biggest album worldwide for a female musician., how is that a flop?

    • Mamma mia

      Second? After who? Katy sold more and so did Beyonce, even though her album was out middle December

      • Jake

        Second after Beyoncé. Worldwide, Gaga sold more than Katy Perry. The US is not equal the world FYI

        • Mike

          I love how the US sales don't count when you're talking about Gaga. I seem to remember certain little monsters saying that Madonna's MDNA flopped, because it didn't do well in the US. It also did very well worldwide. Funny how you conveniently change the rules when it's YOUR icon.

          • Jake

            At the comment above: the entire media is not calling it a flop you doofys, just some haters. How credible is an article that puts in its title something subjective like ‘flop'? That's like saying ugly gaga or something.

            At Mike: I personally never said MDNA was a flop, in fact madonna was the highest musician last year according to Forbes, beating out Gaga. I'm just keeping it real man. Too many trolls out there. Also the US is a HUGE part of worldwide sales, and she hit the top spot in the US too.

          • Jake

            Again, she ain't my icon. Just keeping it real

    • Jeremiah Newman

      hey, if the entire media is calling it a flop (where she is now apologizing for, lol), then it is a FLOP! it's the few of you YES monsters versus everyone who knows it's a flop… too much bragging and blah, blah album of the millennium and blah, blah and now, the fall down is just as hard….. it's a lesson she needs to learn and obviously, she is learning it the hard way! always thought the media loved her and wouldn't say anything negative about her, but i guess when public speaks, the media has to report the truth after all.. just sayin’

      • Jake

        Entire media calling it a flop? And that somehow becomes reality? No wonder People's magazine and all the other gossip mags are doing so well with a bunch of bigots buying their crap

        • Jeremiah Newman

          LMAO! W R O N G! Forbes declared her the biggest loser of 2013 because of her artpoop FLOP! A reporter from NY times had a piece on why flopga is no longer relevant. artflop was #1 on Vh1's list of the biggest flops of 2013. Billboard and of the now fired bill werde were scrambling to
          explain why artflop, flopped big time. Rolling Stone called it a flop too and went on to say it was “boring and normal” OUCH!!! Look it up (sips tea, rolls eyes and smiles)! So you keep reading your people magazine and remain the biggest delusional bigot you IS! LMAO!

          • Jake

            Dude.. Are you for real? There are tons of articles written about Artpop being a huge hit. And stick to the $$$: #2 biggest opening act for a female worldwide, #2 highest grosser for a musician last year, Artpop at number one in over 15 countries. That's not a flop.

            If you are comparing to Born This Way, then we all know it isn't as much of a seller. At the same time, she has been out of the scene for 2 years. I'd say you're just a hater who probably needs to get a life.

          • Jeremiah Newman

            Umm! YES! I am for real. Hey those articles exist in those very valid publications. So puh-leezre! Stop trying to glorify that artpoop crap! it's the reason flopga is flopping hard. people like you spewing yes! yes! good! great! when it actually SUCKSBIGTIME! you're what we call flopga's glory hole and need to get your “OWN” damnlife! YEAH!

  • Chris

    Shut up already Stefani, give it a rest!

  • Fuck ya'll

    I don't quite understand the meaning of “flop” how is ARTPOP a “flop”? Just because I hasn't met the sales of her previous albums? No artist is a flop… This article is obviously biased. Since you used the word flop in your article I'm just categorize this as irrelevant and inaccurate

    • Your 15 minutes are up gagz

      Stay pressed, little moron.

    • vrocco

      It's a flop by Lady Gaga's previous standards. For many other artists, it would be a breakthrough, or at least a solid hit. But for Gaga, no single reached #1, only one single legitimately reached the Top Ten (not counting the one-week fluke of a streamed ad featuring “Dope”), and the album didn't even sell as much as “Born This Way”, let alone her smash debut.

      She still could turn it around if another single catches on, but at this point, it might be better to quit while she's behind and focus on an entirely new project…

      • #Intelligence :P

        I knew I followed you for a reason…yes for Gags, ArtFlop has been…well, a flop. If Gags has 2 more flop singles then Interscope mercifully pulls the plug on the ArtPop era life support.

            So we are never getting the video? Looks like Gaga loves Venus but wants charts more ;_; I hope by Act 2 she doesn't mean a Stefani Jean Era lmao.

          • http://t.co/LzNrdNOiyB Lady Xerox

            My theory is that she never wanted to release DWUW but her label saw the GP reaction to the promo single and jumped to release it. She fired Troy right around then and cleared house with management so I'm guessing she's not releasing it for two reasons: 1. she doesn't want to because her heart's not in it 2. R. Kelly is tabloid poison at the moment.

            All in all, it's not coming. Btw her team leaked that Gypsy was going to be a single way back in Sept. when they put up a facebook header with Applause and Gypsy being promoted on it. She loves both Venus & Gypsy so I don't think this has anything to do with charts (Gypsy barely has a chance to smash anyway. If DWUW didn't smash Gypsy won't either).

          • LoveTheWayILie

            You know as well as I that Gypsy is her only hope. Gypsy fails and Arpop is done ;_; Too bad cuz I honestly enjoyed at least half of the album very much. Btw that reviewer you linked to epicness was an epicmess. Clear up your Body Achne before you review Body Ache. XoXo

          • http://t.co/LzNrdNOiyB Lady Xerox

            Watch his BJ review. He gave it a 3 out of 10 and said it was the 2nd worst album released by a solo pop female this year other than Stars Dance lmao. He blames her team and will.i.queef more than her which is really where the blame should fall.

          • LoveTheWayILie

            I did watch that review and it sucked to no end. First of all I can see that with the way he spoke of Britney he never had any real insight into her career aside from what they posted about her on tabloids. All she sings about is sex? From her 42 released singles Britney has only 2 that are explicitly about it, 3 and If U Seek Amy the latter carrying not the literal F me meaning but a sort of continuation of Piece of me. Also he mocked her emotional songs but I really do believe that Britney has great ballads and this is not the fan in me talking. I think the way Britney can show vulnerability and fragility in her voice is really good. Take Everytime or Out from under for example. Those vocals were more emotive than most power house vocalists endlessly belting a syllable. Her other ballads like not a girl not yet a woman and lucky and perfume show smooth controlled vocals and her EDM ballads are just dam good. Take Quicksand co written by gaga, Unusual you and the masterpiece that is He about to lose me. The fact that he said that albums that came out for the most part this year were pretty good just confirms that he has no idea what he is saying. The votes are in and majority of critics agree that 2013 was one of the worst years in pop music. Britney Jean is not a very good album. It lacks direction, every song on it is an album cut. No definite single, a central piece a direction. Will I eminem is horrible. Body Ache has amazing chorus the production on the verses kills it. Till it's gone has the best verses the production on the chorus is bad. All I am saying is that BJ is not a good album but it's not as irredeemably bad as everybody says. It's just ok and nothing more.

            I Wanna Go

            Cmon. Knee has basically one mode and it's sex or being sexy. Work Bitch & Oops are made to be sexy and incorporate the same themes. That's what he was saying. Her ballads that the GP used were Lucky & Everytime. Two of her best songs but they are the exception (especially since 2007 as she's released not a single ballad since Everytime).

            Being sexy is not the same as singing about sex. Gimme More and the whole Blackout era was her putting on a freakshow and giving cameras a piece of her. There is a difference. Being sexy and singing about sex is not the same. I was discussing singles only so Breathe on God is out. I wanna Go is about wanting release, it's not about sex. Radar, Hold It Against me, boys is about wanting a guy to dance with her. They are flirt songs not sex songs. Baby One More Time is about her missing an old boyfriend and wanting to get back together, how is that about sex and Toxic is arguable but i'd say it's more about her being addicted to a guy. And ;_; @ you paying dust to Criminal and Perfume.

          • http://t.co/LzNrdNOiyB Lady Xerox

            Stop being a flop -_- He didn't say she releases “sex” songs anyway. He said she releases the sex-kitten type of songs only. So songs that are sex-centered. Radar is obviously a sexy song, Hold It Against Me “if I said I want your body now” ummm if that's not a sex song idk what is. And he's right. That's her forumla and has been since the beginning.

            What I agree he's wrong about (or at least what he's missing) is his comment about blackout. Blackout is the Britney album. It's stupid to judge it based on the music alone because NO ONE bought that album for the music. That album was purchased because it was catchy – yes – but more because of what it represented at the time. Blackout is the Pale Fire of the pop world! <3 The actual music isn't really good tbh but that doesn't matter in its case. What's great about it is what it represents as a cultural artifact. EDIT: anyway I got stuck working the midnight (RIP me) so I'm going to bed now <3 xoxo *Sweet Dreams (the Circus Tour interlude) starts playing*

          • LoveTheWayILie

            Ok I am watching his review now and these are his exact words “her songwriters made a choice long ago that all she should sing about is sex”. If we really start judging that a song is about sex with every little detail than everybody is a sex kitten including Gaga and Even Adele. Sorry to hear that you are stuck working the fryer so late. Sweet dreams (The Original Eurythmitics starts playing). XoXo

            Could you even finish his review? He's terribly boring oh em gee. If it was in writing, i'd read it but they shouldn't put a boring person in front of a camera ._.

          • LoveTheWayILie

            I couldn't tbh. I went through almost all of it and at the last minute I stopped cuz he was too biased and uninformed. And yes he was not funny at all but he didn't even try to be funny. Who cares his vids don't get more than 30k views and most of them have as much dislikes as likes. He is like a flop version of Miley Cyrus.

          • Ferrer

            “Hit me baby one more time”. I wonder where she wants to get hit…? Definitely not a song about sex… ;_;

          • LoveTheWayILie

            Anybody who thinks that Baby One More Time is about sex is a complete moron beyond redemption. There is nothing in the lyrics that is about sex at all.

          • Ferrer

            Besides the fact that she sounds like she's moaning half the time I guess you're right. If anything it's a song about endorsing physical abuse <3

          • LoveTheWayILie

            Adele set fire to the rain lyrics:
            It was dark and I was over
            Until you kissed my lips

            But my knees were far too weak
            To stand in your arms
            Without falling to your feet

            When laying with you
            I could stay there

            Adele the Queen of Nymphos. What a sex pervert.

            I guess she loves to have it (rolling) in deep.

  • Nick

    Gaga is going through alot of pressure. Whether you agree with her antics or lot, she was kind of expected more than any other pop star to pull off an amazing album. I think the core problem is people used to be amazed by her and now because her weird fashion, or crazy videos, or similar catchy hooks aren't drawing people in anymore….she's lost some cred. I think people were expecting her to do something shocking again and quite honestly ARTPOP was just a recreation of what she has already done. She is an amazing artist, talented, beautiful, AND original despite biased Madonna comparisons. But if she actually wants people to listen to her again, she's going to have to throw a real curveball. Not hype it up as something and then not deliver. ARTPOP is not a bad album, but it would have been just as successful in 2008 as an opening album. But not people have made up their minds about her, and the only way she can grab back that artistic attention….is doing something no one would ever know or expect about her. Just an unbiased thought. ;)

  • Jakester

    I totally get her on this. As beyonce has even stated, that the control of the work is not in the hands of the artist anymore. The work is completely controlled by men in chairs who know nothing about the music, have no training in it. They are businessmen who care about nothing but the bottom line. I know this from my best friend who works for SONY…So, give her some slack I say.

    That being said. Gaga was running around saying that this was the greatest work of art etc etc…Whining about it isnt going to fix it. At this point, fix it. Use the positive response to the Christina performance and make something out of all this, and turn out a fierce follow up.

    So, Gaga, keep your mouth shut and let the work speak for itself.

  • Disraeli99

    One delusional, sad creature. She needs help. Not enabling.

  • aloyisious

    Ah, some shit hit the fan…and got all over the fans.

  • isaac

    What a ridiculously biased and plain awful article. ARTOP is in no way a flop in the slightest lmao… second most selling album of any female last year worldwide. ..#1 everywhere. .. flop? Lol

    • Your 15 minutes are up gagz

      Also she's already got TWO albums with the highest second-week-sale drop in the history of the music business, and only FIVE years after her debut. SLAY!

      • Manuel Perez

        And yet she is still selling at the worst as well as all other pop stars. SLAY indeed.

  • gio

    oh dear gaga, just go home and watch some tv, ur so done

  • GLM

    Well, we'll see how things pan out for her this year. It's not much of a secret that the music industry is in a terrible place right now, people who know almost nothing about music are trying to push musicians around at record labels, and “team members” don't always look out for an artist's best interests. Being a pop artist is a dicey game, so Gaga had better prove that she can roll with the punches. Otherwise, it will be harder to argue against those who assert that she refuses to take fault for her missteps. The thing is, though, that ARTPOP probably would have taken off plenty on its own if the public liked the music. Adele's “Rolling In the Deep” and 21 album seemed to gain momentum in the US with very little promotional efforts. I don't expect ARTPOP to be resurrected with a new single release and promotional campaign, but I'd love to see it happen. If all else fails, that duet album with Tony Bennett should be prioritized. As long as the media is going to incessantly compare Gaga to Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna, they might as well be reminded of why it is that Tony would never release a duets album with any of them.

  • DReview

    -_- The Matrix of the Industry is so alluring. This is also part of the web. Don't be fooled by this string of misconceived agendas. Time for the industry to shift away from the have and the have nots, and also close the doors to the sell out. Do not sell as a starving artist to values dictated by the many few who consider themselves of high influence.

    Also this type of philosophy will increase sales. Ironic

    I have a tough time getting through ‘Art Pop” and I am a big Lady GaGa fan. I dont think that you can blame management. ‘Applause’ was everywhere and at times, still is. I would love for her to release a ‘jazz’ album or an acoustic album of her songs, but that isnt her style. She will alsways do what she wants and has enough money to keep to that. Wishing her the best.

  • cubanazza

    Lady Caca is over. She out of tricks like f5, 99 cents CDs, and crontroversial tac ticks. She is bad flop and she know it. Career over no hope.

    SHE betrayed her fans for making such a cheap record and doing the same thing OVER and OVER again!!

    Too bad she can't seem to see that while pointing one finger at others, she is in fact pointing four fingers at herself! Look at the mirror and say hello to conceit Gaga! duh?

  • Wang

    i really don't think those who call it a flop have their own brains, they form views purely based on a press release. That is such an immatural behaviour to defame someone with little knowledge of whom.

  • Tyler

    Stop trying to say she's done or she'll never amount to anything… I still have faith in her and she doesn't deserve all this crap you're giving her. Let her make it up to u guys and show u that she's the Lady Gaga she's always been. She doesn't need ur BS… Stop being haters and GET A LIFE!!!!

  • Mark Furrer

  • Michael Powers

    These “stars” today are talentless. They parade around in idiotic costumes to hide that they have no talent. Talent is singing or playing an instrument without all of that BS. Adele, for example. She gets on stage and performs. No BS! Lady Gaga needs to get on stage with a rock band and sings songs. That will revive her career!

  • Maestro

    This all due to the entrance of wrecking ball (pun intended) artist called MILEY that is more controversial, prettier and for sure younger! So relax Steph, its just the nature of show biz to relate to younger person. Alas MIley's coming were too soon for you.

  • dud

    I don't think Gaga's career is over..the gays are loyal to a fault ( look at the way they still support cher). Yet you can't keep on cranking out wet messes and calling them a CD. Sounds like Lady gaga got a big head and thought she could sing whatever she wanted and it would be great.
    I don't like the way she blamed others though..your a star now..you have money..you have fame..you can tell producers that your not gonna sing this or that

  • aerotica

    Can't she just own her failure like an adult? Lemme guess. If it had been a success the glory would have been all hers , but since it tanked, its everyone else's fault. She may not be Mother Monster anymore, but she is a Monstrous Motherfucker.

  • GamePhreak845

    Well I think it's safe to say after all these months, ARTPOP actually “Recovered”. Album sales now at 2.3 million since release now, and not that far behind Katy Perry's Prisms worldwide sales. (2.9. Mil)…May be low for GaGa but many artists would kill to sell that many albums.
