Lady Gaga Album Demand Overwhelms Amazon Servers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Much like the caller in the Lady Gaga hit song “Telephone,” some visitors to Amazon’s site received a busy signal Monday when they tried to download the digital version of the artist’s latest album, “Born This Way,” which the online retailer was selling for 99 cents on its release date.

Spokeswoman Sally Fouts said Amazon experienced a high volume of traffic that caused delays for those downloading the album — echoing a posting on the album’s product page on Customers who ordered the MP3 version of “Born This Way” on Monday will get it for 99 cents, she said.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is known for her pop music and outrageous fashion sense.

Customer reviews gave the album an average three out of five stars.
