But post Bad Romance, her antics have become unbearable and she's been difficult to relate to at all. The 99c album first week, her terrible music videos, her music isn't as good, the 'ART' of it all.
I actually want to like her but she makes it difficult. I love Judas (apart from the abhorrent chorus), Marry the Night and Do What U Want - but all of her performances for that song have been disasterous! She's got a great voice, and so does R. Kelly - just sing the song beautifully and nail the damn thing! Even Sexxx Dreams had promise with it's huge chorus - but they fucked with it enough to make it sound pretty average.
I hope this is a wake up call for her to be honest. Australia isn't here for her this era, but I don't think it's particularly this era's fault rather than the bad aftertaste of Born This Way. Outside TOP 1500? To me that is an incredible disappointment - Katy Perry's Prism was #21 last time I checked. This early in the game it's a huge disaster.
I still like her. Different strokes for different folks. ARTPOP may not be The Fame or even BTW, but it is different from the other two and I can appreciate that. Personally I'd be disappointed if it was just a clone of her previous albums. Prism is what really disappointed me. Katy Perry said it was supposed to be darker and more personal and it's really just Teenage Dream Part 2. That's really what I don't like: artists who don't change or at least try new things. It gets tiresome.
