Why did the applause MV not smash?

Lemme rephrase

why didn't it smash as much as it could have?

was it because:
1) the GP found it scary

2) was it too boring for them? (but then rubbish videos still get lots of views)

3) youtube boycotting her? lol jk

4) No ARTPOP videos for 7 months so no one really came back to it? (Like in the recommended bar of yt) But then zayn's dust till dawn got 808M and that was one off. ik yt is more popular now but DTD was a moderate hit

5) a lot to digest?

6) Pretentious? 

Lets compare the yearly views

2013  - 128,012,719 (pretty good for only 4 months in 2013)

2014 - 64,290,239 (12 months and half the views of 2013, Ik the popularity faded but)

2015/2016/2017 - 38M/39M/33M

 

Now: whisperlina gomez - come and get it

2013 - 197M (with 3 months extra, not as much of a hit as applause)

2014 - 108M :selena:

2015/2016 - 97M/98M 

2017 - 66M

So was it gaga's lack of follow up videos that caused applause to not get say 500M + views? Or what do you guys think cause there are 73 more videos from 2013 that currently have more  views than applause

Oh please. The only reason Gaga's videos aren't getting millions upon millions of views upon release is because she and Bobby are not paying youtube to inflate the views and fabricate the number of people who watched the video. All those things pop stans dwell on are all fake and bought by labels or managers to try to present an air of popularity and importance.

Gaga has never been big in streaming, yet she's selling out stadiums when a lot of artists, say like Whisperlina Gomez can't. Camila Cabello's hit song Havana also has more than 1 billion views combined, but she's not even selling out arenas. Her tour sold out but it was all theatre.

You don't need views to become a successful musician is what I'm trying to say.

Applause did fairly well though, 280 million views is a lot.

They actually have the audacity to think that they can make stars out of anyone, and the stupider, the better (Logan Paul :fthis: and other trash bags)

That's because Gaga has an established fanbase for almost 10 years while Camilla is a solo artist for not even two years. They public loves the song but they don't know who the singer is, they just bop to it and forget it.

but there was a period they had been paying to boost the views in the MR video so :lolly:

the reason she doesn't have 100m+ so fast is because her visuals haven't had WW appeal for years and the songs to accompany them aren't hits (minus MR)

hopefully in LG6 they'll fix her streaming and YT views with her return to dance pop and amazing visuals :firega:

You're right. A lot of artists who have billions of views (like Psy from South Korea) don't have an established fanbase. These artists are not here for longevity. Online views are irrelevant to legacy.

People were over CrazyGa by than and everyone tought she is an untalented, try-hard, icon wannabe weirdo. The video still did well though.

As they all said

Gaga was overexposed and had a bad rep, (for no good reason)
