Lady Gaga has finally got her revenge on Carly Rae Jepsen, after the Call Me, Maybe singer previously knocked her off the Billboard 100 top spot in 2012.
Seven years ago, Carly’s hit went straight to number one and stayed at the top of the charts for seven weeks – breaking Gaga’s previous record of six weeks with her song Born This Way. Lady Gaga didn’t exactly take to this too well and jokingly tweeted Carly to tell the singer she was ‘coming for her’. The A Star Is Born actress wrote: ‘@carlyraejepsen I SEE you just swooped in and broke my BORN THIS WAY record of the most weeks at #1. DONT GET COMFORTABLE IM COMING FOR YOU.’ That was seven years ago and Gaga has finally got her payback in 2019.

It’s been revealed that Shallow – Lady Gaga’s hit from A Star Is Born with director and co-star Bradley Cooper – has overtaken Carly and has spent 101 days (just over eight weeks) at number one. Oh, revenge is sweet, isn’t it? Lady Gaga’s latest achievement isn’t the only one she has been celebrating recently, as the star picked up a Bafta and two Grammys. Gaga was left in tears as she won the Bafta for Best Original Music on Sunday for A Star Is Born.
She tweeted: ‘I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music @BAFTA‘s. I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well. We made a film about music. ‘This means the world to me. Thank u to all our fans we love u so much, we wouldn’t be here without u #BAFTAs.’
The Bad Romance singer had actually snubbed the ceremony to attend and perform at the Grammys in Los Angeles, so Bradley picked up the prize for the pair instead. And it was a good call on her part as she won two awards – Song Written for Visual Media with Shallow and Best Pop Solo Performance with her track Joanne.
