Lady Gaga's new album 'ARTFLOP' sells just 258,000 copies in its first week...

I know Lady Gaga's record label must be hotly pissed about her first week album sales. Not even coming close to scraping the 300K mark. They forked out a fortune on promo and then Katy Perry went and kicked her ass not once but TWICE.
Despite the album debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200, the figure is a massive deflation from her previous album 'Born This Way', which opened with 1.1 million copies in 2011. To be fair, it may be too soon to say that 'ARTPOP' flopped completely. But I expected a lot better. Not because the album was good (it wasn't), but because I thought her fanbase was a lot stronger than that.
