Lady Gaga urges fans not to buy her music

WENN

Lady Gaga has staged another publicity stunt for her new album by filming a video urging fans not to buy her music.

The singer has been out promoting her new single, "Applause," which was released this week ahead of her new record "ARTPOP" in November. Gaga's headline-grabbing antics have so far included baring her backside in a see-through bodysuit during a night out in Los Angeles and shooting a fully-nude video.

Bing: After leak, 'Applause' is released early

However, she has now confused fans by releasing a short film in which she orders them not to buy her new single or album. The singer posted a link to the video, titled "Lady Gaga is Over," on Twitter.

Tell us on Facebook: Think this reverse psychology will work?

In the clip, she is seen posing for the camera wearing a clear mask over her face as captions flash on screen declaring "Lady Gaga is no longer relevant ... Ever since 'Born This Way' she's a flop ... Do not buy her new single 'Applause' on iTunes ... Give her no applause ... Don't dance to the song at all ... DO NOT buy 'ARTPOP.' "

I like her music but these silly publicity stunts are way beneath any successful performer and that makes me not think so much of her, the person.  The publicity stunts are the kind of things lousy performers do to try to get their name our there.  Her music is on top but she still breaks out that "Tiny Tim" ukelele and acts like a freak for reasons that I can't fathom.

good idea don't buy her "music" (or what passes as music).  now, if she only stops touring and stops recording altogether, her 15 minutes will be over NOW, thank God!!!!!!!
