Lady Gaga Is Most Deleted Artist At Last.fm

Lady Gaga Is Most Deleted Artist At Last.fm

Hypebot is asking if an interesting statistic could spell the end for the omnipresent pop sensation known as Lady Gaga.

 

The New York-based dance music diva now holds the dubious distinction of holding the top rankings on Last.fm's latest "Most Unwanted Scrobbles" list. In other words, people just don't want to hear her all that much anymore -- especially her biggest tunes like "Poker Face" and "Paparazzi," which have fallen off the playlists of many users.

 

In fact, as of Sept. 29, Gaga holds the top four "most unwanted" spots, with "Alejandro" hitting the top spot (or is that bottom spot?). If this is a harbinger of things to come, then Ke$ha may have reached a saturation point as well, since two of her songs are in the top ten.

Before GaGa and Kesha it was Britney and Madonna. I think they're doing pretty well financially (not so sure about Britney). Probably just comes with the territory for that kinda musician.

Also, Gaga's songs have been around for a while now. Once she gets back at it and starts putting out new singles Im sure she'll be back.

I confess that I have last.fm deleted Gaga. But I think there is some confusion about what "most deleted" means. It means people DO still want to hear her, but they are just embarrassed about it and don't want anyone else to know they're listening to her, and so are deleting the songs from their listening history.

^ yeah, that's what I was a bit confused about, too. I admit, I've deleted a few artists over embarrassment... But I feel like Lady Gaga is one of those artists that can go either way when it comes to listener "cool points." There's the "totally uncool" perspective, and the "ironically cool because it's so mainstream" perspective.

I don't understand people who delete scroobles over embarrassment.
On the other hand, i don't understand the concept of "guilty pleasure" either. There is always a reason to find pleasure in bad music, understand what that reason, embrace it and move on.

strangely, this title sounds like another "distinction"
