Argue. Argue . In the majority of forums and in stan culture in general, Britney having a bigger peak than Gaga is a consensus. HOWEVER, when you look at figures the opposite is shown. - In the height of her career, Stefani managed to bag massive digital sales, "Just Dance" & "Poker Face" set new peaks in that format (both 7M+ US downloads), whereas Spears only got one humongous hit during her 1st LP; ...BOMT's remaining singles landed outside the top 50 of the BH100 Year-End, some didn't even make it. - Gaga was dubbed the "New Queen of Pop", her avant-garde artistry was so polished to the point it was compared to the ones of legendary artists as David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Madonna. And Gaga actually amassed accolades for it. Britney on the other hand was seen as a kid/teen artist and wasn't taken seriously by her peers in the music industry. - Gaga had the most lucrative tour for an artist on their debut album. Stade De France from the Born This Way Ball is a bigger sold out stadium than any Britney tour ever (70,617/70,617). In the United Kingdom, Gaga planned 2 dates at the Twickenham Stadium and grossed $10,714,991 while Britney's Circus Tour "only" made $9,959,306 with 8 dates at The O2 Arena. Etc.. - Britney's albums sold more, yes, but the climate was also much healthier at that time. To compare, "The Fame" was twice in the top 5 best-selling albums of the year (IFPI), and twice in the top 10 yearly biggest albums on Billboard. "Born This Way" was the 3rd best-selling album of 2011, and even "The Fame Monster" which was an EP released limitedly ranked as #13 on Billboard year-ranking. From these receipts, we can get that Gaga spawned an enormous peak in pretty much every field contrary to Britney, ideed in: - hitmaker power - album sales - fashion icon status - touring - media coverage - acclaim What do you think?
