The Billboard Hot 100 chart had a somewhat unexpected end. The fact is that not "Roar" by Katy Perry or "Applause" by Lady Gaga top the "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.
Katy Perry, who reached the second place, sold more copies of her track. Thicke, in turn, follows unbeatable in streaming services and running on American radio, and so had secured the first place.
Lady Gaga had to settle for sixth place - behind Miley Cyrus (" We Can not Stop "), Imagine Dragons (" Radioactive ") and Jay Z (" Holy Grail "). The last week is not the best for "Mother Monster." The singer was publicly reprimanded by the director (Bill Werde) of Billboard for trying to manipulate the chart.
All because she posted a link on her Twitter, where you could watch her music video several times in a row..
To Werde, "disclose a link that enables a fan to play and leave the PC, while the video continues playing indefinitely, goes against the spirit in which our charts are made." He continued: "I just hate when someone tries to manipulate the charts, whether fans or artists. This goes against the spirit of what we do, which is to celebrate the success."
