I disagree Venus would have flopped super hard. Dwuw is more marketable in my opinion. But I think manicure is the most radio friendly on the entire album other than gypsy
A part of me agrees, but the biased part of me disagrees. A lot of people who’ve heard VENUS have it stuck in their head because it goes back to Gaga’s roots: of repeating catchy simple words and syllables. VE-NUS. P-P-Poker Face. Just Dance. Ra Ra Ah Ah Ah. It’s pure and simple. And besides that, Venus is such a danceable track, so… but Do What U Want is the more marketable choice. Marketable only to an extent, as its sales have proven. There is so much intelligence behind the track, and sometimes I think the public only deserves her more superficial tracks like Venus (irony cause that’s what Do What U Want is about).
But I agree, MANiCURE and Gypsy would be DREAM singles :) ABSOLUTE DREAMSSSS (uggh it just makes me more frustrated to know they WON’T be singles, because that’s just what’s going to happen UGHHH).

Apparently the video is coming out tomorrow
I haven’t lost total interest in the video yet, but I’m certainly not in any state of anticipation. When it comes out, it’ll come out.
