Interscope's $25 Million Gamble On Lady Gaga's 'ARTPOP' CD Goes Up In Flames As Sales Plummet...

With her first three albums Lady Gaga delivered huge sales and profits to Interscope Records, but her fourth album, ARTPOP, is not meeting sales expectations.

Interscope spent $25 million promoting the album which will sell around 250,000 copies in it's first week, according to Billboard. Those numbers represent a 75% drop-off from her previous album, Born This Way, which got a big boost by way of a 99 cents per album sales promotion via Amazon on 2 days during it's opening week.

Although ARTPOP will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, a lot of media outlets are calling the album a flop. Her performance over the weekend on Saturday Night Live failed to give the project a boost in sales that was expected.

How bad have things gotten? The Examiner reports that some of Gaga'a fans a.k.a. Little Monsters were advertising 🤬 sex online to people who would buy 30 copies of ARTPOP.

Interscope will be looking for ways to recoup the promotional costs spent on the album. Could employee layoffs be on the horizon
as the Business Insider suggests?

Damn.. Her album with all that promo flopped hard...

    It think that's what hurt her, the fact that Em released his album a couple weeks earlier.

    When she took all that time to drop an album, she lost a lot of steam notice how her "comeback" at The VMA's was the last thing people talked bout, Miley twerking was the talk, she took too long dropping an album.

    IDK if I would Loooooove to 🤬 gaga. 🤬 looks like Zach Braff from Scrubs with a sex change, but I guess every once i a while she has some type of appeal

    gaga is a talented musician, but I think the gimmicks went too far and threw off the manstream and now it's just her core

    She also hasn't been making memorable songs like before

    They think she is Michael Jackson lol, MJ spent less than that on Thriller and he paid everything back after one month of it's release, this is 2013 not 1983, everybody has computers now and can get it for free now, Interscope should know this.
