But 8 of the acts below her (bar Shakira) are more popular than her. So um.

Her peak was really big, probably biggest since Madonna's 80s, she was global phenomen, so i understand why

Older acts didnt have youtube and social networks but Queen is still on the list 8-)

you mean biggest since Britneymania? I agreed Gaga's The Fame/The Fame Monster time was really one of the few biggest eras from females artist!

Britney and Madonna would be much much higher if there was social media in their peaks moments.

Britney as brand was big, but as era i dont think so, it had only one global smash (gaga had jd, pf, bd) the fame/m + monster ep in few countries = 17/18.000.000 in this time is much bigger than +20.000.000 15 years ago when album sales were big (tfm outsold baby everywhere except in us so it was bigger)

Era was bigger than baby era, britney as brand i dont know, maybe no

Britney was easily the biggest popstar since Madonna, her whole peak was flawless, after scoring the biggest female debut of all time with "Baby one more time" she broke records again with "Oops I did it again" and had 2 back to back Diamonds albums, she ruled the world, the Britneymania back then was way stronger and bigger than the ones we see today, and IMO she was the last huge popstar that was produced in the business.

Gaga, had a huge debut that required re-releases / Re-editions to force sales, and her peak was short lived, by the time "Born this way" arrived it wasn't at all an "Oops I did it again".

The biggest female music artist since Britney is definately Adele :wink:

The fame was already over 10.000.000 when it was released and it was top ten eveywhere before tfm was released so that argument is invalid

When its all said and done tfm sales are much imressive for the time it was released, imagine if it was released in 1999 with smashes like jd, pf, lg, papa, maybe over 30.000.000?

It wasnt at all oops and still was the 2nd best selling album of the year giving her critical acclaim (something britney lacked on her first albums) and not to mention it wasn't tfm pt. 2 like oops was ;)

^ Oops I did it again received sligthly better critical reception than Born this way and had more memorable hits around the globe as well. As well as huge pop impact.

Metacritic

Oops I did it again - 72 / 100

Born this way - 71 / 100

However, we're not talking about the quality of the albums, we're just talking about peaks. Anything after Britney can rival to her huge peak.

5 years after her debut, Britney released this

5 years after her debut, Germanotta released this

I rest my case.

PS: I'm thankful Beyoncé's not on this unworthy list.

33 reviews vs 11 , sp its not comparable

My point was: britney bigger as brand
Gaga's era bigger, she sold less only in us, had bigger hits from one first album, also amazing sales for singles when in 1999 if people liked few singles they would probably buy album and that's why single sales were low overall , Gaga also recieved grammies etc.

@Hugo I agree 8-) , 5 years after her debut Britney was getting huge acclaimed hits with "Toxic" and "Everytime" , Gaga was releasing fiascos like "Do what U want" and "G.U.Y" :wink:

We're talking about PEAKs, you only focus on debut album because that was the only time Gaga was hot is another story, Britney's peak was more than BOMT :wink:

Even Gaga herself knows that Britney was bigger than her in ALL aspects.

I think hugo was on Britney's side with that post :lol:

Although, I still think ARTPOP is not as bad as its reputation suggests, and would take it over any Britney album (or the very popular The Fame for that matter). But oh well.

If Gaga had handled the era normally (like she started with Applause, before the DWUW/label shite), the success would have been bigger and everyone would be raving about how great the album is.

This, if album sold more im sure they would all be raving about it here, its always like that... Nost people care only for success and if it flops they decide it's bad because it flopped

Did you check the link I posted in the OP?

Several pictures have been posted of this list and that guy is a record holder and got an advance copy.

I thought it was fake too. It literally looks like something from 2010.
