Ellie Goulding’s single Burn spends second week at Number 1 whilst Lady Gaga’s much publicised Applause spends its second week at number 9, plummeting 4 places.
The “Just Dance” singer has had a disappointing start to the run up to the release of her 3rd album ARTPOP as the 1st single from the album fails to reach the apex of the UK official charts.
Applause is the first of Gaga’s debut singles from an album not to reach the number 1 spot. Just Dance from ‘The Fame’, and Bad Romance from ‘The Fame Monster’ both reached number 1 in the UK and Born This Way from ‘Born This Way’ reached number 1 in the US.
Last week Gaga and her former BFF Perez Hilton hit the headlines after a fan of the singer took to Twitter to tell Gaga that Hilton was seen in her apartment building in NYC.
Gaga then went on to accuse Hilton of stalking her and sending her a text, where Madonna was pointing a gun at Gaga’s head whilst she was in a wheelchair with the word Karma written.
Gaga’s fans reacted angrily taking Twitter to send Hilton hundreds of death threats to him and his baby son.
