Album Sales Don’t Mean Anything

Contributed anonymously:

There is one thing that Britney fans love to throw in everyone’s face: Album sales. I would like to start out by saying that Britney is nothing but a product. Earlier, someone mentioned Christina’s sales of around 8 million. Correction: she has sold right at 10 million worldwide. Let’s take a minute to examine the facts:
1. Before Christina’s album debuted, the extremely controversial video “Dirrty” was released. This turned millions of people off and she lost a lot of fans. And unlike Britney, she didn’t go on an apology rampage. She didn’t do nude photo shoots then hypocritically play the innocent card.

2. Christina did not promote her album near as much as she could have. Sure, she could have done like Britney and did multiple magazine covers, photoshoots, interviews, guest appearances and TV specials. In fact, Christina had only one special that aired on MTV.
3. Christina chose not to be America’s sweetheart. She quit with the silky blond hair, blue jeans, and fake smile. Therefore, she was rejected by the masses.
4. She debuted at the same time as EMINEM!! Do you honestly think Britney would debut at number one if she were up against Eminem?? I think not. Eminem sold over 700,000 his first week.
5. Britney still appeals to millions of children. That’s an entire audience that Christina doesn’t have anymore.. or at least not near as much.
All of these factors explain why Christina isn’t selling as much as she could be, and why Britney always sells tremendously. I actually think Christina has done a great job considering all of the negative press she gets. And to the idiot who said that “Stripped” was a flop: since when is freakin’ TEN MILLION a flop?? Silly 8 year olds, STAY IN SCHOOL!
Now I as a Christina fan want to throw something in YOUR face! It is called RESPECT, which is something Britney will NEVER have!! Britney’s music is the laughing stock of the music industry! She can have all her popularity, album sales and worthless Kids Choice awards because she will never have critical acclaim. I am SO glad Christina isn’t as popular as Britney. I’m glad Christina had the good sense to stop with the Teenybopper music and grow the **** up! Britney is honored for her body and dance moves and nothing else. Just recently on the Billboard Music Awards, comic the insult dog spent like 5 minutes completely dissing Britney’s music and voice. The whole audience was laughing, I know I was. People bash Christina for her appearance and attitude.. and that’s about it. Never her music and voice. All you brain washed Britney fans keep saying that Christina’s voice is all she has going for her.. well GUESS THE F*** WHAT!! THAT’S ALL SHE NEEDS TO SURVIVE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! Christina is SO lucky that she can do whatever the hell she wants.. speak her mind, dress wildly and scantily.. she can be as dirrty as she wants to be because she has that good ol’ voice to fall back on. She’s STILL selling millions and is still in the charts after OVER a YEAR!. Britney on the other hand HAS to look pageant perfect and stay sweet at all times.. if she didn’t.. her career would be over because that’s all she has going for her. Good looks and a sugary personality.

    another essay. harsh but true. but Christina did pose nude for many magazines…well only one…but partially nude for the others.

    “All you brain washed Britney fans keep saying that Christina’s voice is all she has going for her” not all Britney fans say that but a few ignorant do. I can handle the ones with some sense. but for the ones who say this…look at her. she’s hot as h*ll. look at her perfect lips…her beautiful eyes…she has to have the sexiest eyes in the biz….her hips….her petitness. lol! she’s way more than a voice…and she’s very artistic.

    Hell yes. I hate the way Britney always sexes up her image via a photoshoot, then she turns around and acts completely shocked and innocent about everything. She also has blamed the magazine people for that stuff.

    Yeah, she doesn’t want to let go of the innocent image completely (a large part of…’, ‘her fan base is young) but she is desperate for an “adult” image.

    Oh geez. I think I saw this exact same comment in another thread around here. Why all this anonymous posting? Hmm. We just had a friggin essay defending Stripped, we don’t need another. And it’s NOT true that album sales don’t mean anything, because it does. Album sales could quite possibly be the truest measure of success and how many people enjoyed your music enough to buy your album. THAT MEANS SOMETHING.

    You know what I hate the most? The die-hard Christina fans that won’t even acknowledge Britney’s talent and success. The ones that would rather spend all their time dissing her than giving her an ounce of credit, the credit that she deserves. To these people, you are ignorant and inconsiderate and so brainwashed that you refuse to see the situation any other way. Britney may not be the best singer in the world, but she CAN sing. She’s a damn good performer. And she’s been damn successful doing all that, yet some of you refuse to give her any respect or credit for her accomplishements. That is just petty, it’s said really. No one said you had to like Britney, but you could at least have the decency to give her the credit she deserves.

    AMEN!! yes.. album sales do mean something but not EVERYTHING which is what a lot of Britney fans think.. they think she is the best thing in the biz because she sales so many records which is untrue

    same 4 die hard Britney fans’, ‘i’ll be the first to admit that I’m really hard on Britney.. but not because I really hate her.. because I just want to upset all the Britney fans who feel the need to tear Christina down in order to lift Britney up even higher. so many Britney fans really and truly think she is flawless.. they almost have an unreal obssession with her.. she can do no wrong.. she’s the best and no one better not think otherwise. I am a firm believer in the golden rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. therefore, I’m going to bash Britney the way you bash Christina.

  5. nellysgirl says:

    Um…no. You can’t just throw out things like “Britney’s music is the laughing stock of the music industry!” and expect people to have RESPECT for you. it just shows how low you are. But I do agree with you on her voice, it’s amazing. Britney’s music isn’t entirely bad. You guys just assume it is because that’s what the media tells you.

  6. HoneyRain says:

    people assume Christina is a b!tch because that’s what the media tells you’, ‘actually.. I agreed with that quotation. simply because I have never heard any industry professional or other artist compliment Britney’s music. all I’ve ever heard from the peeps in the industry is how childish and tacky her music is. the only ones who praise her music is her fans, which in itself is an accomplishment also

  7. blondeambiti0n says:

    The only thing I’ve said about Christina is that she comes off a *****, a trash-talker, and a bit of a skank. I have never not acknowledged the girl’s talent because I KNOW she has it and I’m not gonna sit there and pretend she doesn’t. I recognize and respect Xtina’s talent and success. And it would be nice if some decent Christina fans would at least feel the same way. You don’t have to like a certain artist, but give credit when credit is due.

And unlike Britney, she didn’t go on an apology rampage. She didn’t do nude photo shoots then hypocritically play the innocent card. Don’t worry, when she releases her next album, she’ll be apologizing for the Stripped image saying it wasn’t real just so she cling on to yet another fad. Its what she did with her debut, it’s what she’ll do again.

    And to those of you who say album sales aren’t everything, I must request you come out of your little bubble and wake up to reality. Album sales are factual evidence to what the music listening people are buying. And while Christina is hardly doing poorly in album sales, she’s no where near Britney and that is fact. That means alot. To say Christina has a better voice = OPINION. To say Christina’s album was better = OPINION. To say Christina’s lyrics have more depth than Britney’s = OPINION. The ONLY fact is album sales. So you guys can say album sales aren’t important if it helps you sleep better at night, but they’re pretty damn important to those who know what they’re talking about. To say Britney is outselling Christina = FACT.
