I'll come to terms with this being basic as f*** if it does its job of being a good hit for her on radio for more than two weeks. It really is catchy, haven't stopped listening to it :lol:

most of her fans like pop song, I'm sure 70% of her fans prefer "the cure" to Joanne. Fans need the song like TF, TFM or BTW album.

if someone said this is trash and want to listen to high quality of music, so you should listen Tony Bennett or Susan Boyle. Keep in mind that Lady gaga becomes popular because of Pop song (TF+TFM) not artistic music.

I think she release The Cure to rebuild her legacy as a radio-artist. NOW she has MR with good airplay-numbers. On Joanne, there's no other song that could reach 75 mio. So I think she use that good run from MR to get another radio-hit. I mean TC screams "play me heavy rotation" :wink:
To me it screams 'delete file'

It's so good :cry:

I love MR and "Joanne" has some other really good songs, but this is her best thing since "Venus" for me.

You do realise that every album she released (as 'solo' artist) has been pop music? Joanne is a pop album, it just borrows elements from an other genre, in comparison to her first few albums who borrow more from edm. Nobody is also talking about her doing an other C2C or pulling a Susan Boyle (the latter isn't even artistic to begin with) but pop can be better than The Cure and that is where people are talking about.

The Cure is more predictable than we ever seen Gaga do. Mainly Gaga did her own thing (which worked out fine for the first few eras) and The Cure is far more safe, predictable and generic. It will grow on some people, and some others expected something better because of what they are used from her, some other people will keep hating it. And that is basically what happens with every Gaga era :lol:

There's nothing bad about basic pop, if you do it the right way. This is good. At the end of the day, Gaga is a popstar, not a Bjork type indie artist. Popstars need hits.

I think this could do wonders for her, even though I hate it. I really hope there is a new album cause "Joanne" was dire imo.

she can be a pop star and not be basic. there aren't only the two options of basic music VS bjork music

Joanne was wannabe "stripped back" and "raw" with an intention to reclaim the reputation lost with ARTPOP. and now that she got that, she's aiming to score a big hit with a generic pop song.

I'd LOVE for her to get that hit, but imo she hasn't been doing her best in years. I still prefer most of the BTW/ARTPOP stuff to anything that came after, at least it wasn't purposely blandified for critical or commercial success, it was very Gaga whether you loved or hated it

I think this is so true especially in recent times. It seems people just want more and more to the point that artists can't do much more else and need to strip it back and that's what Gaga has done here. She's been criticised so much over the past few years about overproduced songs so I'm glad she's taken this risk.

BTW is her best album imo, her creativity at its best. Though she has made some great songs after that, she's on decline artistically. Joanne was a step in the right direction imo.

Why are people upset at her releasing a Pop song? Isn't that what she's supposed to do?

God, this has been stuck in my head all week and I'd only heard it 2 or 3 times!

Doing really well in Australia, it's been #1 on iTunes all week, she's got a smash on her hands.

The song has one of those annoying, yet catchy sounds throughout, somewhat akin to Bieber's 'Sorry'.

Not all pop is basic, and this song definitely falls under the category of basic. I don't like it, but that said she can do whatever she pleases. I just won't be listening if she keeps releasing this Chainsmokers-esque crap.
