In short, I’m not convinced that ARTPOP holds many hits. That’s bad news indeed for Lady Gaga’s imperial designs, but it may not be the worst thing for her artpop, lowercase, going forward. With the pressure off to beat the world, she might just be able step back, take a deep breath, and make some great songs. You could argue, after all, that Gaga’s apotheosis was a fluke, a case of historical happenstance — that she was merely the right singer in the right place at the right time. Gaga’s arrival coincided with a brief flickering, from about 2008 to 2011, of American pop Europhilia, when the Top 40 was captivated by four-on-the-floor Eurodisco beats. That phase came to a crashing end this summer, as American pop swung backward, toward the warmer, funkier, retro-flavored sounds of “Blurred Lines,” “Get Lucky,” “Treasure,” etc. The mob has moved on, as it always does, and Gaga shouldn’t feel too bad … [Read more...] about Rosen on Lady Gaga’s Weak Sales (and Weaker Album)
Men, you can probably guess, don’t have as severe an issue. Four men over 40 have snagged a No. 1 in just the four years since Sia’s hit: DJ Khaled and Daddy Yankee both got No. 1’s in 2017 for “I’m the One” and “Despacito,” respectively, while Bradley Cooper and Billy Ray Cyrus each got one for “Shallow” and “Old Town Road (Remix)” last year. In that same time, it took a reliable holiday song and a concentrated social-media campaign to get one woman over 40 to reach the same height. And who knows when the next one will happen organically? The High Note points out a gap in representation on the charts and illustrates Hollywood’s long-standing problem with women “of a certain age.” While divas like Mariah Carey, Cher, Missy Elliot, and Stevie Nicks will always dominate popular music, The High Note wants you to show them some respect on the charts, too. If worst comes to worst, Beyoncé turns 40 … [Read more...] about Is There Really Only One Black Woman Over 40 With a No. 1 Song?

Since this album is fully devoted to trigonometry, it takes a little math to figure out what exactly Gaga is going for in the moment — it’s sort of about a threesome between you, Gaga, and gossip about you and Gaga. We’re back in Artpop and Fame Monster land, with Gaga writhing in the trappings of celebrity, poking a little fun at her leaky reputation (“Money don’t talk, rip that song”). We’re taking a trip back to 1980s New York, with Gaga and producers BURNS and BloodPop sampling the bassline of New Order’s “Confusion,” and getting so close to the sound of “Vogue”-era Madonna we’re sure to see that whole stan war erupt again. But enough of that, just think of the “Babylon” drag show possibilities! … [Read more...] about All I Want to Listen to Is Lady Gaga Overpronouncing ‘That’s Gossip’ in ‘Babylon’
