Lady Gaga isn't exactly known for her subtlety, so it's no surprise that she's hyping up her latest musical venture. Lady Gaga's latest album, ARTPOP, is set to drop next month, but that's not stopping her from making some pretty extraordinary claims: Namely, that ARTPOP will be "the album of the millennium." Yeah, we like the single "Applause," but it's current place at No. 11 on iTunes doesn't exactly scream musical game-changer. Perhaps we'd be more inclined to believe her if she didn't already state that her album Born This Way was going to be the "greatest album of the decade." Here's what some other artists have said about their work... and whether we believe any of their hype.

Here's what some other artists have said about their work... and whether we believe any of their hype. 

Kanye West

Kanye West could probably benefit from talking about himself a little less. After all, it's a rare person that insists he is a "creative genius," and a strange one who insists that he is "the nucleus" of culture (?). West may think he's a lot of things, but we also have to give him credit where credit's due. Have you heard Yeezus? It's hard to dislike... at least, Rolling Stone thought so

Miley Cyrus

Don't you ever say that Miley Cyrus shies away from the spotlight. After her now-notorious VMA performance of a "We Can't Stop"/"Blurred Lines" mashup was heavily criticized, Cyrus shrugged it off. In fact, her Robin-Thicke-foam-finger experiment was supposed to turn heads. According to the controversy-stirring singer, it was history in the making: “Me and Robin, the whole time said, ‘You know we’re about to make history right now,’” said Cyrus of her performance. While Cyrus may have disturbed us all by grinding up on the "Blurred Lines" singer, the positive reviews of her album, Bangerz, speak for themselves.

Heidi Montag

If you haven't listened to Heidi Montag's music, then you should consider yourself seriously lucky. Back in 2010, Montag (aka the wife of the Hills devil, aka Spencer Pratt) had just released her independent album Superficial (let's take a moment to take that in, shall we?) and put on a very disturbing performance at the Miss Universe Pageant. When interviewed about her venture into the musical world, Montag insisted that her album would be compared to Michael Jackson's Thriller and make pop music history. If having four people listen to your album is making pop music history, then congrats, Heidi! 

Jay-Z

Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail features some serious bragging on its tracks, but what rappers don't like to pump themselves up once in a while, right? Unfortunately, despite massive success in the market, Jay-Z's latest album isn't receiving entirely positive buzz. According to The Daily Beast: “'Picasso Baby’s' grinding beat is reminiscent of old school, 'In My Lifetime'–era Jay-Z, but the lyrics are flat-out absurd: 'It ain’t hard to tell / I’m the new Jean Michel / Surrounded by Warhols / My whole team ball / Twin Bugattis outside the Art Basel / I just wanna live colossal.' It’s empty bragging."

Paris Hilton

Do you love Lil Wayne? Well, you may love him a little less after hearing him on Paris Hilton's new project. Hilton is releasing her latest album (yes, she had a previous album, if you remember the fairly-terrible-yet-relatively-catchy song "Stars Are Blind") with Cash Money Records. Hilton insists that she has "the perfect single," and brags about her brilliant lyrics, which are as follows: "Are you having a good time/because I'm having a good time/And I may be a little bit tipsy/But that's okay because you're with me".
