ARTPOP is the last iconic pop era!

"Iconic" is a bit of a stretch.  It was an amazing pop album tho.

2013 not ready for ARTPOP. ARTPOP is so ahead and when gaga at released when her on lowest point imo. ARTPOP is a movement and not just an album. ARTPOP could mean anything

ARTPOP like it or not when actually remembered by the pop community is generally associated with being a flop, and the negative press she got. 

That does not mean it was an actual flop, as her sales and tour proved. It just sold much less than the previous album. 

You have diehard ARTPOP fans. 

But even ARTPOP ultimately had some sort of cultural impact. Applause is pretty well remembered, and "having their ARTPOP era" is a cultural reference that is often used to describe another artist dealing with similar reactions and narratives that were associated with ARTPOP, such as "flop", selling less, messy rollouts or single releases, controversy, etc. 

So yes, in a sense, ARTPOP is iconic within the pop music fanbase, but not main stream culture, no. Not like her first three albums. Or ASIB.

Whether you think ARTPOP gets the title or not, it still stands that we haven’t had a good era in YEARS. Ariana is the only one I could think of. I don’t consider her to be on the same level as Gaga but I can give it to her that she is iconic, has great MVs, a persona, etc. In the same vein as Cardi.

Who the **** remembers a single MV of Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Camilla Cabello or whatever else flop people are trying to make happen?

Also « eras » is a term claimed by Gaga because she can do them properly. It applies to actual pop stars like Nicki, Beyoncé, Katy, etc. 

Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez or Billie Eilish releasing a generic single is NOT an era. 

Yes maybe those girls will continue to have success like Selena did... yet Selena has been in the game for YEARS and is still not an iconic pop star. She’s a generic whisperer. Her albums have no concept. Her MVs suck. She has no stage presence.

The BTW era is a thing. The ARTPOP era is a thing. The Lemonade era is a thing. The Prism era is a thing. The Rare era is not a thing :awkney:

We need actual pop stars back ugh. I’m CRAVING a good era.

Debut doesn’t matter when sales have been decreasing for years. Joanne did amazing following ARTPOP and had more longevity beyond its debut let’s not(and I like AP more).

It's about how deeply engraved was a particular era in people's collective conscience, not only LMs.  

I still think it was the 2009-2010 period. BTW started good, but then fizzled out after Judas.
