A few days ago, I reported that JC Chasez was going to sell less than 60,000 copies of ‘Schizophrenic’ in it’s first week out. *NSYNC fans got mad and made some ignorant responses. ‘Schizophrenic’ debuted at #17 on the Billboard Chart and sold about 51,000 copies, almost 20,000 less than Nick Carter. And all the *NSYNC fans were saying the most ridiculous things like, “Well Nick was BSB’s heartthrob so that’s why he sold better than JC”, or, “Nick had a lot of promo”, or, “At least JC’s album is critically-acclaimed”, or, “JC had competition and Nick didn’t”, or, “JC took chances, Nick didn’t.” What the hell are they talking about? I can refute all those arguments. Either way, JC and Nick pretty much did the same in sales and reviews and chart position. As far as JC fans saying, “Well Nick lost to Justin,” Nick isn’t the Backstreet Boys’ most talented. I guarantee a Brian Littrell or AJ McLean solo album would make Justin so insignificant he’d have to expose his own breasts just to get anyone to pay attention to him. Like one critic said, Nick is Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ and Justin is ‘Rock With You.’ So JC is ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Something.’ I’m more of a ‘Beat It’ type of guy if you know what I mean.
