    Honestly, I expected her to sell around 200-250,000. No one sells a million copies of their debut the first week these days. I’m waiting for the numbers to be released later today since all this stuff happened before the Billboard report. Also, the RIAA (which does the certification) takes longer than 6 days to certify stuff…so I’m thinking this is something that her record company did for her and not necessarily an accurate reflection of sales. I bought her album though, so if it’s true…good on her.

    She sold 410,000. Its platinum because of shipment. She’s expected to lift another 250,000 this week so would probably sell the whole million within the month.

  3. JuniorGirl04 says:

    well, they shouldn’t go based on shipment…’, ‘…you can ship all you want…doesn’t mean it will sell, LOL. I’m glad it is selling, but that’s a little presumptuous of them isn’t it?

    Its only if they really know it will sell, I think in this circumstance they’re right

    She did sell 410,000 which is huge for today. When are you kids going to realize that platinum status is always based on shipment. If they ship out a million copies the person goes platinum. If she sells that million and they ship out another million she’s automatically double platinum. The same is true of all artists.

    Really? I didn’t know that’, ‘But how’s just shipping out a million copies make it platinum? What if barely anybody bought those million copies that were shipped?

    Ashlee should thank Jessica, MTV for her reality show, and tons of promotion. I really didn’t think that it would sell that much. This is better than Jessica ever did. None of Jessica’s albums even peaked out at number one. I didn’t think that Ashlee sold a million yet, but when she does, that is when it should be certified, don’t you think?

  8. jazzprofounder says:

    Well shouldn’t pretty much every pop star including Britney, Xtina, and Jessica Simpson thank the promotion, the fans, and whatever else they used to attract people to buy their records and make it high on the charts? Records don’t sell off the shelves on their own. Ashlee Simpson deserves this success just like Britney, Xtina, and Jessica, she worked hard and obviously people like the MUSIC if it’s selling better than we thought. I didn’t think she would sell that much myself.

  9. InDistantTime44 says:

    WOW’, ‘Good for her. I happen to like the album. I’m glad she isn’t receiving a lot of backlash because she’s Jess’ sister. She deserves it.

    O-TOWN WENT PLATINUM…LOL PLATINUM DONT MEAN NOTHIN TODAY, LET HER MAKE IT WITHOUT A’, ‘REALITY SHOW THEN SHE GETS RESPECT, FOR NOW ITS AN OK CD, SHE HAS MADE HER MILLION OR MORE AND THAT’S ALL DADDY SIMPSON WAS INTERESTED IN ANYWAY.
