    Don't forget about yall hives who love to throw Beyonce CDs at people's heads. Those CDs then end up on the street → in the trash → in the oceans → in a whale's vocal cords.

    IF you switch to streaming, you should choose a service that runs on 100% renewables of course (e.g. Apple Music), not some filthy business like Spotify.

    Anyway, I really hope it's clear that I was NOT serious with that post. There's NO realistic scenario where Timmy's CDs end up being eaten by a whale.

    This is exactly my thoughts tbh. Dua is doing what Gaga does just much better & with way more success. There is no need for Gaga's dated & bad Born This Way & Artpop dance rejects when you have Dua releasing excellent and visionary dance music.

    Gaga knows that her dance album will get compared to Dua's dance album in all aspects and it's just a losing battle for her.

    I have said this many times but GaGa should have just waited for Bradley to summon her for another movie.

    RIP to the poor whales who'll have to eat them one day..

    The physical CDs could still be released at a later time.
    It's not like she was going to sell 1M copies first week anyway.
    I'm surprised she has not claimed being infected yet, cause you know the good sis always catch something for every album.

    Also it's blatant Gaga is only pushing back coz of commercial reasons since in the same breath she is still releasing some new Haus Lab make up Disgusting

    Well, tbf Weeknd and Dua have both been doing promo for their albums since late last year. Gaga's song has only been out three weeks.

    I am disappointed tho. I needed something new for my Corona soundtrack.

    Songs like No Doubt's "Don't Speak" (16 weeks at #1 on the US Radio) and Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" (11 weeks at #1 on the US Radio) would have been undeniable #1 hits on the Hot 100 but rules (back then) didn't allow them to chart on airplay alone and without a physical release.

    the rule was corrected eventually as it was unfair and songs were allowed to chart based on airplay but some labels still kept not releasing singles (physically) in order to boost albums sales (in consequence sacrificing singles peaks and even potential #1 hits on the Hot 100), Britney's label used this strategy a LOT during the first years of her career, she lost an undeniable #1 Hot 100 hit with "Oops I Did It Again" (song) because of this ... But on the other hand her first two albums went Diamond.

    Back in the day (80s, 90s and early 00s) getting good album sales was very important for artists and labels, those artists who sold the most albums were considered the most prestigeous and powerful music acts in the industry. Similar to how today those who get the best streaming results are ruling.
    Correct. U.S. labels got greedy in the 90's and they paid for it in the 00's. Should have stayed the course like they did in the 70's-80's.

    Only in the USA, I guess. I have never been unable to buy a single here.

    I remember buying (asking for money to buy) albums because of one good song on the radio during the late 90s/early 00s. So many albums sold very well that were extremely horrible albums during that period but everyone was basically competing for who had the most CD's in their collection. Record labels made BILLIONS of dollars but paid the artist crap during those days. Thank God those days are over.

    If only they would come up with new stuff instead of writing the same two sentences over and over again...

    And just saying, but Trump comparisons are a bit rich when the MAGA crowd is responsible for 90% of your fave's success.

    Deplorables need to know they're deplorable. If we don't call them out daily, they'll continue to get more deplorable until we end up in conversion or concentration camps again. It's proactive self-defence.

    that's probably the reason your comment didn't get your expected reaction (which clearly was: "let's all jump and hate on Taylor") and instead what you got was no one supporting or cheering your comment.

    if you were more objective by not putting different judging standards for Mariah and other artists people would have found some credibility in your remarks about Taylor Swift.
    I'm in no mood to have a discussion like this and I'm sure you aren't either. I'm not a Taylor fan mainly because I'm not interested in her music and I'll admit that me having an opinion on her might be biased. When someone tells me I deserve Trump because I don't like Taylor Swift...that's where I draw a line though. That had nothing to do with what I said about her. It's not fair that I say something negative about Taylor and you use the Mariah card as a defense. People always use the Mariah card here for any reason, mostly to gaslight the lambs.
    "I don't like this or that artist" > "Well you as a Mariah fan always complain about the hate so you don't have a reason to dislike this artist".
    Just no.
