I can't believe media outlets are doing these already lmaooo


Anyway, Uproxx loves Born This Way (but who doesn't??)

"The trajectory of Lady Gaga’s career has varied wildly throughout the 2010s, but no matter how you feel about “Shallow,” it’s important to remember that Born This Way is only eight years old. It’s astonishing how much the world has shifted since then, especially when it comes to queer rights and acceptance, but it’s also hard not to argue that part of why it has is because of the work Gaga put in to change it. Respect"

Ooh this will be good to see! Bad Romance came right at the end of the last decade so hoping Telephone takes video of the decade lists and Born This Way album features in places too! ASIB has defined a lot of the past year too so that has a shot in some lists.

Pitchfork albums!

Lady Gaga: The Fame Monster (2009)

At first, Lady Gaga seemed like a slightly smarter-than-usual dance-pop hopeful and nothing more. But then came “Bad Romance.” A gothic psychodrama draped around a titanic club banger, accompanied by an instantly iconic music video in which she stoically burns a man to death, the song announced Gaga as a true force to be reckoned with.

“Bad Romance” kicked off The Fame Monster, a collection of eight songs released as a deluxe edition of Gaga’s 2008 debut album, The Fame. (Yes, we know: The Fame Monster was technically released in late November 2009. But for something that cast such a long shadow over this decade, we’re making an exception.) Other than the supremely fun, Beyoncé-featuring “Telephone” (originally written for Britney Spears!), none of these songs sounded like anything else released at the time. They’re bizarre and jarring, full of references to death, dangerous sex, Hitchcock movies, and eating brains. (There’s also “Speechless,” an unabashedly retro power ballad that Meat Loaf would have killed for.) The Fame Monster’s release kicked off an arms race of pop kookiness: Suddenly, it seemed like everyone from Katy Perry to Nicki Minaj to Kesha was falling all over themselves to out-weird each other. But nobody’s freak flag ever flew higher than Gaga’s. –Amy Phillips

But it bothers me that some critics will always see her as a "freak" despite giving 4-star reviews to Joanne and ASIB too. Why can't Gaga be EVERYTHING? I don't get it.

But each superstar have their defining eras I guess. Hope people will start to see the big picture of Gaga some day.

Uproxx lists best POP albums too and guess what's there at #8 wub.gif

Possibly the most overlooked pop album of the decade, Joanne, in hindsight, is the ideal companion piece to her character Ally in A Star Is Born. Botched timing meant the record was necessarily forced to stand on its own, and the bluesy, throaty country-pop threw a lot of people off. But in a post ”Shallow” world? Joanne f*cking bangs.—C.W..

26. Lady Gaga: Born This Way (2011)
Released at the height of mainstream EDM’s Billboard chart takeover in 2011, Lady Gaga combined the best of club-ready glistening synths and Gaga’s knack for otherworldly choruses to take pop music to new heights. Born This Way may not have captured the American consciousness quite like 2008’s The Fame—how could it?—but it still produced some of the best singles of the decade: LGBT empowerment anthem “Born This Way” and arena-ready stunner “The Edge of Glory.” While her next two solo albums, 2013’s Artpop and Joanna were relative disappointments, everything Gaga touched was magic in the late ’00s and early ’10s, somehow even turning country-indebted single “Yoü and I” into a mainstream pop single. Like The Fame, Born This Way shaped pop music in Lady Gaga’s image, turning her into the genre’s most iconic star since Madonna. Plus, without this record, we never would have had Broad City’s arguable best ever scene. —Steven Edelstone

Yasss we like Stereogum don't we!!

The Best Songs of the 2010s

88 Lady Gaga – “Telephone” (Feat. Beyoncé)
The “Telephone” video is a true art-pop powerhouse: Gaga and Beyoncé team up for a critique of telecom hyper-availability while driving a yellow truck dubbed the Pussywagon out of a leather-and-studs women’s prison fantasy and into a Tarantino-inspired desert crime caper. Ten years later, it’s an evergreen reminder that a good club banger is worth leaving anyone on read. –NM Mashurov

46 Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – “Shallow”
“AHHHHAHHHAHAHHHHAHHHH.” With one titanic wail, a few seconds in the A Star Is Born trailer, and a couple of dank memes, Lady Gaga had a new iconic hit on her hands. The palpable chemistry between Gaga and Bradley Cooper launched a thousand tabloid headlines, and “Shallow” became the emotional centerpiece of Gaga’s first blockbuster film. –Peter Helman


(Love the #1 too)

Pretty weird that Telephone is there instead of Bad Romance, both were released in 2009 after all but hey you can't have it all with these snobbish lists.

Stereogum has Telephone video as #19 on their list of best music videos of the 2010s

19. Lady Gaga – “Telephone” (Feat. Beyoncé) (Dir. Jonas Åkerlund)

Now that she’s transitioned into movies and Vegas and sincerity, it’s important to remember how Lady Gaga began her decade: as a master of her own sleazily surreal sensibility. Virgin Mobile spent its product-placement money well.

05. Lady Gaga – Born This Way Ball (2012-2013)

They don’t just hand Las Vegas residencies to anybody; you’ve got to be an iconic singer, sure, but you also need to bring the flair for spectacle that draws in curious non-fans, too. Lady Gaga has been ticking both of those boxes for more than a decade, but she did so most forcefully during her Born This Way Ball, the self-described “electro-metal pop-opera” that chronicled birth, death, and the search for recognition and acceptance that goes on in between in the midst of a stage styled after a fractured Gothic castle. From the meat dress to the motorcycle, this one had all the Gaga you could handle and then a little more.
