First Dibs: Is Lady Gaga’s “Applause” Being Called A Flop?

Who joined Jay-Z for his final Legends show in Miami? Did Toni Braxton have a wardrobe malfunction? What makes Katy Perry “Roar” in real life?

  • Early estimates are declaring that Lady Gaga’s “Applause” was a flop. Katy Perry’s “Roar” is more than doubling “Applause”’s numbers and record execs are planning on releasing a second advance single from ARTPOP before its debut. It doesn’t look good for Gaga, but the song’s music video and her VMA performance could turn it around. [Examiner]
  • Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake wrapped up their Legends show in Miami on Friday night. Rick Ross joined Hov onstage, while Rihanna, Jermaine Dupri, Timabaland, and Justin Bieber joined him at the after party. []
  • Toni Braxton suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction on stage this weekend. Her dress fell off her butt, revealing her backside to the crowd. []
  • Katy Perry might be celebrating the success of “Roar”, but she’s still fighting for same sex marriage rights. While on a radio talk show in Australia, she had to politely diss a fellow guest, an Aussie politician who favored “traditional marriage.” [MTV News]
