Going Top 40

What's great about Katy Perry's Teenage Dream CD is that she makes no excuses about her intentions. She wants hit singles, and she'll beat you over the head with her hooks until you submit. This was Lady Gaga's mission on her CD and EP.
Snobby critics still don't give artists like these, and their influence Madonna much love, because they wear their hits on their sleeves.

Since when did going for hit records mean that you couldn't get critical respect? The moment you went Top 40? The moment every single you had was a video?

What these 2 women are doing is making Top 40 fun to listen too whenever one of their songs come on. Me, I just want to hear a good single.
