It’s Oprah vs. Gaga on Vulture’s Anticipation Index


Lady Gaga's album Born This Way has monopolized the top of the Anticipation Index (with one or two exceptions) since we launched the list, but if we'd expect anyone to topple her, it'd be Oprah. Unfortunately, Gaga's album drops two days before Oprah's farewell, so we won't get the head-to-head battle we so desperately crave, but things are already getting interesting. Oprah leaped into the No. 2 position after yesterday's final taping, but wouldn't you know it, Born This Way goes ahead and leaks online, pitching us back into the thick of battle. We have no money riding on this (yet), but if Oprah does not win this, we will not know what to believe in anymore.
