    Why are they re-releasing the same album? it makes no sense, when it’s really not even doing that well in the first place because the material is mediocre. they think 3 bonus tracks are going to get people to buy the album?

  2. grace_04 says:

    Britney might make it in the top 10, which I’m afraid of. The song is sh**. How can people like it? Jessica is only popular because of her t.v. show. Then she released this edible perfume/body wash/spray etc.. Her song is also pretty crappy.

  3. Jive says:

    Why would Jessica re-release In This Skin?? Why would her fans anyway buy an album with the same song with 3 extra and some bonus clips. Her father is stupid to think that now she is a little famous, people would buy her album. Like blaming 9/11 for the disappointing sales for Irresistible. Hello, Britney sold a lot, Alicia Keys sold a lot, *NSYNC sold a lot too. Anyway, the song With You is annoying and her voice is worse too. Good thing she know how to sing, but the voice is annoying.

    It seems like Toxic is destined for the top ten. It’s about time radio warms up to Britney again. Most of the stuff at the top of the chart is the usual hip-hop fare so it’s good to see something different.

    I really think Jessica Simpson would really enjoy this article…..if it didn’t have so many numbers. ‘Numbers hurt my head, baby. Baby? Nick your not mad at me?’ Just drop it Jessica!

    Interesting. I thought Billboard reported that the song had moved up several spots to land at number 3. Oh well, if it does get to #1, it won’t stay there. Jessica sorta sucks.
