Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ album 99 cents — again

Rejoice, little monsters.

If you missed out on the 99-cent Lady Gaga album “Born This Way on Amazon Monday, you’ve been granted a reprise.

Overloaded servers Monday caused consumers to experience difficulties downloading the pop star’s new digital album, which retails for $11.99 on iTunes, flooding Amazon with complaints.

According to a CNET article:

“Clearly customers are really excited for Lady Gaga’s new album–we saw extraordinary response to Monday’s promotion–far above what we expected–she definitely melted some servers,” Craig Pape, director of music for Amazon, said in a statement today. “So we’re doing it again, and this time we’re ready.”

Additionally, when you download the album you’ll receive 20 GB of Amazon Cloud Drive storage for free — a crafty way to entice us all to give the Amazon Cloud Player a try.

Did you have problems downloading the album the first time?

All the haters. Why do you even go on a site and read about an artist who you don’t care for? Why do you hate yourselves, your lives, so badly that you feel the need to lash out at someone who you don’t even know?

She is seeing the world and living a life almost everyone dreams of. Not sitting at a desk 9-5 worrying about the mortgage like the rest of us.

All the LGG haters. Why do you even go on a site and read about an artist, Lady GaGa or otherwise, who you don’t care for? Why do you hate yourselves and your lives so badly that you feel the need to lash out at someone who you don’t even (and will never) now? If you don’t like LGG or any other artist, go read about someone who’s craft you do enjoy.

She is seeing the world and living a life almost everyone dreams of and most of us will never be blessed with attaining. Not sitting at a desk 9-5 worrying about the mortgage like the rest of us.

99 cents is about what Lady Gaga and her music is worth. Expect to see it in Walmart’s discount bins within a year.

If obnoxious tencho-pop with dumbed-down sexually-drenched lyrics is your cup of tea, more power to you. To those of us who have actual taste in music, we’ll take a pass.

I would not pay two cents for an album. She may sing well but her obscene performances and costumes are way over the top and should be rated R.

I just don’t understand what level of unhappiness causes a person to bash someone they don’t even know. Makes no sense to me. You don’t care for an artist, fine. Go read about someone you do care about. I don’t care for country music, at all. I don’t run to a country musicians website or article about them and say negative comments.

Thanks for the link to the great deal, Lauren! Though I’m not a huge Lady Gaga fan, I think $.99 is definitely worth it for an entire album!

I got it Monday with no problem. Downloaded the Cloud player then downloaded right into ITunes, piece of cake. 99 cent cake. Even better.

A ploy by the label to get the #1 status. This album isnt even as good as her last 2 projects.

Born This Way is an excellant pop album. It is not exactly what i would call radio friendly or American friendly. It is, though, an excellant pop album from an american artist….it probably is the best of the decade…from an american artist. Kylie Minogues Aphrodite is the overall best pop album of the decade.

I guarantee a lot of the hate comes from people who have not really listened to Lady GaGa. They judge her primarily by her appearance which is a persona.

David Bowie went through the same thing when he started out as Space Oddity then morphed into the Thin White Duke.

Try catching GaGa’s HBO special. Besides the non-stop performance and constant changing outfits, you’ll hear a very talented artist. Especially if you hang around long enough to hear her a cappella version of Born This Way!
