Kelly's Steep Slide

| Filed under: Exclusives!Kelly ClarksonMusic Minute


We're starting to really feel sorry for Kelly Clarkson. She keeps going from one low to another.

Her disastrous new album, My December, came in second on the U.S. album chart's last week, debuting below Hannah Freaking Montana!

Now, in it's second week in release, Kelly's album is sliding much higher than usual, having a 61% drop off in sale - according to Hits Daily Double. The album sold 116,364 copies this week, good enough for the #3 spot on the album charts.

Clarkson, once again, came behind Miley Cyrus, whose Hannah Montana 2 album sold a healthier 186,567 copies and only had a 42% drop off in sales from last week.

T.I. took the top slot this week with his new record, T.I. vs T.I.P debuting at #1 with 465,984 albums sold.

The only other notable debut this week is Kelly Rowland. The former Destiny's Child member's second solo CD came in at #6 with 83,746.

Meanwhile, sources tell PerezHilton.com that RCA Records and its head honcho, Clive Davis, have all but abandoned any "future plans" to promote Kelly Clarkson's new CD. Instead, Davis has moved onto Idol sweetheart Carrie Underwood's follow-up to her 6-million selling Some Hearts CD.

When Clarkson's My December failed to debut at #1 last week, RCA pulled almost all of their summer campaign of tv and print spots and have moved on to Underwood's much anticipated fall release, we are hearing.

    Oh and I feel bad for Kelly!!!

  3. Emily says – reply to this


    Kelly's album is #9 on iTunes and anyone else debuting at #2 and coming in at #3 their second week would be considered a smash hit. The only reason she debuted behind Hannah Montana is because Disney is a machine and parents go out to buy the cd for their spoiled kids. Kelly is amazing and always will be.

    How is having the #2 album "disastrous"??

  5. Lori says – reply to this


    I think if media would stop trashing her new cd (which I bought and is good) she would be just fine. She isn't really doing bad anyway so I don't know what the big deal is.

  6. mtg says – reply to this


    This is just a small bump in what will continue to be an amazing career for Clarkson.

  7. ceeks says – reply to this


    what do you have against her- the fact that she's actually talented? #2 on the charts is disastrous?? you're out to lunch.

    Perez, why don't you just listen to the wonderful, amazing, best of the world (just kiddin) album of your friend Miz Posh Becks??? Or Hilton's one lol
    I'm dying to see what you'll have to say about it! :p
    Never heard Kelly's one, but she has a great voice, and she really is talented, so just give her a f***in break!!

    Whats her problem?
    Why wouldnt she let them write a couple of hit songs for her? Clive was right on.
    He rmust have a LOT of money to turn down his offer of $10Mil to add some hit songs to her album.

  14. ash says – reply to this


    KELLY'S NEW C.D IS SOOOOOO AMAZING…. I THINK ITS REALLY RETARDED THAT YOU CAN'T appreciate good muzik when you hear it……….. personally i think you all are missing out on who she really is…. but you know wha??… PEREZ YOU FUCKING WHORE… U LOVE THE DRAMA SO OFCOURSE W.E YOU CAN DISS UP… OFCOURSE YOU'RE GONNA TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT… ITS REALLY TOO BAD THOUGH.

    KELLY YOU ARE THE AMERICAN IDOL AND THERE IS NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU. I admire who u are…. and coming from me as a musician …. i think the usic u r creatng in ur new album is absolutely beautiful….. you know why???….. because it is who u r and it is REAL… and that is so hard to do for any artist.


  15. me says – reply to this


    #2 is not THAT bad…

  16. Yup. says – reply to this


    So they pulled back on supporting Clarkson to support Underwood as Clarkson 'only' debuted at @ #2. In the country.
    Fickle noses are just doing what they do best; following the smell of money.

  17. v says – reply to this


    How is being at number 2 on the charts BAD??

  18. GoldenMills99 says – reply to this


    Kelly and the other idols need to realize that without the hype of the American Idols machine, they can't really stand on their own. Her new material sounds as if it's written by a child. Saw her on CBS morning show, and she looked like a fat little bean bag in the dress she wore. I guess she's not listening to her stylists either. She's going to have to suck it up and start sucking up to Clive, because without him, clearly she's nothing.

  19. Jessica says – reply to this


    "How is having the #2 album “disastrous”?? "

    I know, right?!!!
    She's awesome, and I bet her album sales will be #1 soon.

  22. chucky says – reply to this


    i dont get it, her album sold almost half a million in two weeks, how is that disastrous? how is falling in your second week on the charts but still moving over 100k albums bad? considering the fact that there have been albums selling under 100k and still debuting at #1, it's pretty good, especially for summer. so why dont you just cut her some slack, it's obvious you want her to fail but she ain't, so quit the negativism and move on to someone else..

  23. Perez -n- Justin G? says – reply to this


    Perez are you dating Justin Guarini? That's the only reason I can think of that you're so mad at Kelly. She has more talent in her fingernail than your favorites Mika and Beth Ditto. Just b/c she isn't your BFF doesn't mean her album is tanking. How many copies have Beth and Mika sold? They would kill for an album as popular as Kelly's

  24. fjpop says – reply to this


    Thats the thing about the media; they build you up and then rip you apart once your at the top.
    Kelly's new album, is hardly a flop. Falling from #2 to #3 is not bad at all. Sure the 61% sales drop sucks, but whatever. I think its terrible that RCA has basically pulled the plug on Kelly's album. Its all because Kelly wouldnt kiss Clive Davis' ass.

  25. bla bla bla says – reply to this


    I don't understand - what's so bad about having a number two album?…

  26. kate ct says – reply to this


    oh wow. number 2? thats just freakin terrible. shit. what planet do u live on perez, number 2 is considered HUGE, and to only drop one spot in a week? im pretty sure thats not considered a disaster. get a life moron

  27. Hating the Haters says – reply to this


    WELL - I don't think the fattest, most repulsive animal on the planet (PEREZ) has the right to judge on who is disastrous - I mean, he looks like he has a bunch of jerbles clogged up in his fat twat. And if in some point of his FAT FIGHTERS career he decides to go on a diet and stop chowing on ugly KOKS - he might loose a couple of pounds off his TWAT.

  29. Tucker says – reply to this


    I actually love My December, but everybody can have their own opinions. But if that is true and RCA is pulling out promotion and focusing on Fugly Underwood, then how can they excect her album to be a smash hit? In my opinion, Never Again is the worst song on My December, and Sober is amazing but not a summer hit. Kelly needs to rush out How I Feel One Minute or Judas

  30. anon says – reply to this


    ""I don’t understand - what’s so bad about having a number two album?… ""

    It's not. The language he is using is meant to convince that it is. The facts don't support the words being chosen.

  31. Tucker says – reply to this


    Fuck off mimirocks, what a stupid name

  32. BS says – reply to this


    I love how you manage to gloss over the fact that the billboard charts have put her at NUMBER 2 in the charts, and she is NUMBER 1 in DIGITAL SALES. We know you hate Clarkson, Perez, but couldn't you at least try to use a reliable source or be… honest? I mean, there are a lot of innocent people who will just blindly accept the shit that you say without checking up on it. Tsk tsk=D

  33. CJ says – reply to this


    Actually this CD ROCKS!! I LOVE IT, and thats all that matters :)

  34. Davey&Goliath says – reply to this


    Oh no a #2 and #3 spot, she might as well kill herself.

    /e insert eye roll.

  35. you suck says – reply to this


    Why is #2 a disaster and have you even listened to her album?? It's awesome! Noboby with half a brain would take anything you say critically of music seriously though. I have seen some of the clips you put on here, the kind of stuff that usually draws the 13 year old. I bet your friends cringe for you when you do stupid things like write that Kelly Clarkson's career is in the toilet, but I do like to come here and see your fairy rantings every morning. It's like watching a train wreck… fascinating. Just remember, karma will bite you in the ass! :)

  36. Crazy says – reply to this


    When you go to America Idol your name will always be associated with the show and new idols will came every year, Clay was the big thing while ago, then Kelly, now that country chic, soon will be Jordan. I have an advice for those kids If you are really talent don't try to be on this stupid show your career will be short live

  37. Andy says – reply to this


    Look Stop picking on Kelly. I don't think she made My December to impress record lables. She made it for her fans. So Shute up and stop dissing Kelly. Have u even herd her album. Every person does not have to like it.

  38. silverwindow says – reply to this


    Don't you think that it is a downward spiral due to assholes like you? The negative publicity is a bitch. We will see what happens to your "career" after you gaping ass gets sued.

  39. steen says – reply to this


    I actually think My December is a decent album. Kelly doesn't deserve the criticism she's getting for it.

  40. Kevin Hent says – reply to this


    After an artists has a huge selling CD like Clarkson's Breakaway, their next CD usually doesn't live up and sales get sluggish. Kelly is still in the Top 5 so it could be worse. She is selling more CDs this week than Bon Jovi.

    Perez, the real sad story is Kelly Rowland. Matthew Knowles didn't put any effort into promoting her CD. It was projected to sell a 100K and it couldn't do it. She can't even get Pop airplay and had to go on Wendy Williams radio show where she trashed the hell out of here for still being managed by Matthew Knowles. Poor Kelly, Matthew is still preoccupied promoting Beyonce awful B-Day CD. It is sad that Matthew and Beyonce are laughing at her for her awful first week sales.

  41. perspective says – reply to this


    Selling barely over 100,000 CD's in your second week of sales IS bad when you are coming off of a multiplatinum CD such as Breakaway. Spin it any way you want, she is not doing good. Cancelled tours, shitty live performances, no radio hits and Perezzie is right as usual.

    I too am anticipating the release of Carrie's next CD!!

  42. Nunya says – reply to this


    Paris, would you shut the fuck up already about Kelly and the album being bad (AND tanking). First, the reviews are great. Both from the critics and fans. Debuting at number #2 is a great accomplishment. Regardless of her past efforts. And dropping 50% or more the second week is not uncommon for any artist.

  43. aineaoife says – reply to this


    Fat, ugly, pigs like you, Perez, cannot comment. My December is awesome, Kelly Clarkson is awesome. Go to the gym, sloth.

  44. Nunya says – reply to this


    Plus…you said the same thing about Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" (if your readers recall). How much that "bombed". And look, still in the Top Ten 18 weeks later. AND going Platinum. Regardless of the plagiarism case that you're now harping on.

  45. London_Mike says – reply to this


    I've never been a fan but since when was a #2 chart placing classed as a disaster?

  46. Me says – reply to this


    Her album is awesome! If the media could stop bashing it for 2 seconds and actually take the time to listen to it, they would realize how good it is. KC is incredible and her album was #1 World Wide last week and probably will be this week too so just shut up Perez and leave Kelly alone!

  47. mina says – reply to this


    Poor girl..

    However I think that if she would quit the 'You hurt me, I'll get you back ' her career will improve again.. So sick of those songs and it makes her come across as a whiny bitch.

  48. merle says – reply to this


    It's one thing to rip people who have absolutely no talent.
    Kelly is a HUGE talent! One who never cancels due to drugs or diva fits.
    She's also very young. She's doing what anyone at her age should be doing, testing her wings, learning to fly on her own terms in front of the world. That takes a lot of courage. Leave her alone already.
    Concentrate your vitriol to those like Paris, Nicole and all those who have no talent at all. To continually hit someone when their down is just tacky.

  49. inomarka says – reply to this


    not sure how #2 on nationwide charts is a disaster, but if that's what the media wants, that's how the media will aim to destroy someone else's career…

  53. Jen says – reply to this


    What is hilarious to me is if this was a Jessica Simpson song (an untalented idiot) it would be a 'smash hit'. Because it's Kelly (a talented smart woman), it's a 'dud'. Come on people!

  54. a perez devotee says – reply to this


    To borrow from one of your other truely messed up artist-"What kind of fuckery is this"? The media ia whipping up one nasty anti Kelly campaign to create a story around a pretty normal girl and ARTIST. Kelly's CD's have always been growers and not showers (sound familiar P?), moving steadily to become one of the top sellers of the year. This CD was actually her best seller in opening#s even though it was not number one. It's a rock/pop CD and personally I think it's very good, dark, sad but not a paint by numbers CD. Be a critic and dislike it but LISTEN to it first. It's not the Winehouse CD(which is amazing) and fortunately neither is Kelly. Controlled by her man, anorexic, have a field day with that CRAZY but talented Brit!

  55. Little Feet says – reply to this


    Perez are you reading these commets? Miost are PRO- KELLY. I don't undersand what yoiu have against Kelly.
    Lighten up or tell us the real reason for the sudden Kelly Hate.

  56. Harrison says – reply to this


    Of course, Perez has chosen to leave out the fact that, on the Soundscan charts, double-CD sets count as 2 copies rather than 1. So in order to get the true story, you'd have to cut the number of Hannah Montana CDs in half to know how many actual individual copies were sold.
    In other words, during the past two weeks, Kelly Clarkson has actually outsold Hannah Montana, but due to the double disc technicality, she comes up behind.
    Hmm, wonder why this hasn't been mentioned.

  57. FARTO says – reply to this


    PEREZ has some nasty little hatred towards Kelly. I wish he would tell us what it is??????????
    Stole your man? Is still slimmer than your fat lard ass? Is richer and more famous?
    Perez have some balls and tell us why you dislike Kelly Clarkson so much?

  58. Wouldn'tULike2Know says – reply to this


    Aww…poor Kelly! Perez is mad that you wouldn't give him the time or day! …When is #2, to #3 on Top 200 bad?!?! Bon Jovi went from 1 to 2, with 62% drop in their second week. But I don't hear anyone screaming how " disastrous" that was. C'mon Perez, I actually use to like your dumb a*s. Now, I just think you are a straight up biatch. If someone doesn't want to reach out to you, b/c we all know you strive for attention, you diss on them. Oh well, glad you are not a KC fan, b/c she doesn't need a fan like you. Keep supporting all these no namers, cuz their music sux, just like you. Peace Out Biattccchhh..

  59. Danee says – reply to this


    How is number 2 and 3 bad? Leave Kelly alone

  60. Kellyfan says – reply to this


    Since when is having your album debut at #2 disastrous? I suppose having it debut at #1 in the World Album Charts is also something to be sniffed at? Dear God Perez! And as far as your 'sources' at RCA go, gimme a break! Even considering how big an ass Clive Davis is, even he's not so stupid as to stop promoting an album that's already hitting top spots around the world (without ANY promottion). Kelly's not on a slide. How about you focus on slagging off that talentless waster Lavigne? Surely her plagerising would garner you more hits than this?!

  61. Lala says – reply to this


    Oh perez please, her cd is doing fine! you're a moron!I don't know what let you so angry about her…the fact that she has talent to write her own stuff???

  62. melissa says – reply to this


    i mean i guess it's bad to be #2 behind a disney character? but geez that's pretty up there right?

  63. danny says – reply to this


    So you slam Kelly for being #2, then #3 (selling almost 1/2 a million cds) but you say nothing negative about Kelly Rowland at #6 with 68,000 cds.

    If a #2 cd is a disaster, I guess Akon who peaked at #2, Gwen Stefani #3, paul McCartney #3, Fergie #3, Rihanna #2 are complete failures?


  64. Dish says – reply to this


    I bought the album and it is FANTASTIC; I've been listening to it religiously. The album is such a tribute to the rock 80's sounds of Pat Benetar, Heart and the like. I love the sound and the girl can just belt it out. It's so refreshing to hear a new female sound that has a little spunk and empowerment about it. Leave Kelly alone, she is one of few women in the music business right now who can actually carry a tune and who isn't successful because of her tits and ass. Her performance at Live Earth last weekend was amazing and oh my gosh…IN TUNE!!! Being number two on the album charts is not bad…give me a break.

  65. T-Meister says – reply to this


    She will come back and make another really good pop album. Never fear.

  66. W says – reply to this


    you guys are so damned bias its not even funny. using words like "only a 42 % drop" and "higher than usual 61% drop" Kelly's album is doing good. Perez u and ur minions need to drink some prune juice and let that shit go!

  67. My Compliments says – reply to this


    Listen when I went to go and buy this CD at Target they were sold out!!! I really think Kelly Clarkson is an amazing singer. So what if this CD doesn't sell as many as a previous one. She is an artist and was expressing herself with her own songs.

    Another one of my favorite singers Darren Hayes left this rat race of the music biz and went independant and is incredibly happy without the contraints of music moguls who only want killer hooks and pop music.

    Kelly Clarkson will always have fans and they support her. Nuts to Clive Davis if he won't.

  68. Stevie says – reply to this


    Wow. #2 IS bad. Jesus.
    Um, no. Breakaway never hit number one but stayed on the charts for like two years. Get over yourself.

  69. Big Papi says – reply to this


    yep, sadly American Idol has become as lame as the old Star Search. The only Idol that's still doing anything is Carrie Underwood. Maybe they can bring Jenny Jones back and do some weak ass comedy again.

    The top 10 is nothing compared to what it used to be. They have a special top 10 for over a dozen categories…..watered down.

  70. So dumb says – reply to this


    Perez, who knows what kind of problem you have with Kelly Clarkson but it's pathetic. Get a life. You know nothing about the music business, her album is not considered a disaster. Go obsess over Paris or something.

  71. AfricanLitchi says – reply to this


    Hey Perez

    Wot is ur beef with Kelly? She's got a VOICE we havent heard since b4 Whitney disastered with Bobby.
    So WOT if she is second on the charts or third or fourth or fifth? I know you have huge expectations of her but 2nd albums like sequels tend to do less well than the debuts. Duh!

    You're such a drama queen, Perez. Get some perspective. You'll be a LOT less inclined towards making cotton candy from navel lint.

    I thank you on behalf of all halfway sane people the world over.

  72. Team Kelly says – reply to this


    How is having a #2 album, and a sliding to #3 that bad!
    Kelly still rules, and i applaud her for standing up for herself. but in this society, standing up for yourself only gets you in trouble! TEAM KELLY!!!

  75. maggie says – reply to this


    Don't feel bad for her. At least she has her integrity, which 95% of these lame pop stars gave up a long time ago. I think she's awesome for sticking by the music that she wrote and believed in. She has the b*lls to stand up to the big guys and make her own decisions instead of packaging herself to be more commercial. We all know the charts don't mean cr*p. I love her for not selling out, for singing what she wants to sing, wearing what she wants to wear, for not being a slave to the dollar, and not giving into to the man. That is what a real musician is all about. You go girl!

  76. Mysterie says – reply to this


    Perez, ur totally wrong here. While her new album isn't selling like thge last one, ur buying into Clive's whole schtick. Yes, Clive is a genius but since when does coming in 2nd and selling close to 290,000 copies in its first week and now 100k plus make an album a failure??? Some indie artists never get the chance to sell those numbers in their whole career! I think Kelly's new material isn't as strong or hit-oriented/radio friendly as the lastr cd, but come on…the girl's a major superstar, has sold over 30 million albums and made an attempt to make a record that was pleasing to her. She obviously needed to heal some shit….cut the girl a break and focus instead on bashing the posing artists like Avril who have to rip off numerous other real artists to get a hit. At least Kelly's not pulling that shit!

  77. DeeDee2 says – reply to this


    Kelly Clarkson is a likeable young woman with loads of talent. If Clive Davis would rather promote Jesus Freak Barbie Carrie Underwood, he's either a fool or being paid off by right-wing fundies.

  78. AfricanLitchi says – reply to this


    You guys notice how Perez only hates on the celebs who have ACTUAL talent? Or are actually good-looking?

    Jealousy? Perhaps.

    Until they start paying him some attention. Like Victoria Beckham who went from anorexic tartlet with no style to 'the biggest thing to hit the US' in Perez-speak.

    Perez has issues. I love that this blog. Its a FASCINATING example of celebrity culture and the resultant low self esteem of those who worship or hate as is the case with our intrepid pink fairy.

    A psychologist's wet dream.

  79. Social-lite says – reply to this


    Hey Perez, most of us love u but u've got to lay off Kelly already! You're only adding fuel to the bs music industry fire…come on already…what has Kelly ever done to you. She's so sweet to her fans and is a fantastic and talented artist. Most of the peeps posting here seem to think you're wrong so I agree - move on to the untalented hos like Paris, Nicole, Lindsay and Britney and save the hating for them!!!!

    Perez,if you keep this up ,you are going to lose what little credibility you have.Seriously,what are you thinking?!?! I know alot of people who are tired of your biased opinions and then there are others who know your opinion is really only a joke.Your five minutes of fame are almost up,so make the most of it!!

  84. orsyn says – reply to this


    Clive Davis himself is as much to blame for the negative press surrounding the album. If it had just been released, with no mention of Clive being upset , I'm sure no one would have questioned the album.. but since everyone relies on other people to think for them, they may never give it a chance… I'm not a big fan of hers, but this album sound more real than the shit on her last album.. just listen to the vocal quality, and the amount of filters Clives shit had on it compared to how real the new stuff sounds.

  85. inadee says – reply to this


    it would be nice if RCA would stop shooting itself in the foot and give the album some publicity. So she took a chance and maybe it wasn't as successful as turning out an album where everyone else wrote the songs. If Kelly wants to experiment, maybe everyone should start backing her up instead of tearing her apart. Like ripping her confidence to shreds really helps anything.

    I personally really like the album.

  86. varinia says – reply to this


    This is all about EGO. Clive Davis' ego. He can't stand, that Kelly stood up to him and is afraid, that others might follow. So, now he's trying to make an example out of her. Perez, why not support her? It took an incredible amount of guts for her to do this. This is all aobut macho-bullying by Clive Davis. The media tried to sink her before anyone actually had heard the album. I will go out and buy it just because….

    The couple thousand of Ace reviews on Itunes, say differently. People really like this cd, plus even Maroon 5 is below Hannah Montana!.

  89. Kelly Fan! says – reply to this


    I bought the album and it is fantastic! I am beginning to believe all this hype is just a way to promote the album. Give her a break it's not like she came in at #10! #2 isn't a failure. The songs are great and I'm glad she went out there and took a chance. She has an unbelievable voice and she will be around for decades! There is a great mix of songs and I can't believe how she can do such a variety of styles. She is her own and very unique!

  90. pinky says – reply to this


    You remind me of a grade-school dork who joins forces with the popular kids to gang up on a schoolmate who is better than all of them.

    Debuting at #2 means Kelly Clarkson is a failure?!? We all know that the way the charts are mainpulated. The way you spin it, Clarkson should just throw in the towel and spend her days nursing the bottle in an abandoned tour bus on some dirty, country road. To the rest of us, Clarkson dared to stand up to her record company and is still making her mark, despite their (and your) efforts to squash her.

    Save the spite for the talentless twits who deserve it, Perez, like Paris and Avril and Nicole. And stop wearing your jealousy of people far more talented than you on your sleeve - it doesn't look good on you at all.

    The album is not bad at all. It is rare to be able to buy a cd and actually like all but 1-2 songs on it. The cd is getting a lot of bad hype - which people are believing instead of listening for themselves. Pity - its like not going to see a movie, just because some movie critic does not like it! Why do people have to tell you what to like?

    First of all, her new album is far from disastrous. It's genious. If you actually took a hour to listen to it instead of basing your opinion off of what everyone else is saying to might realize that.

    Perez, very few in the music industry can maintain the same sales as previous albums. Look at Alanis Morrissette for example. "Jagged Little Pill" sold 16M, her second album, 4M. Third album, a million. Fourth, 500,000 copies. And I love her last three albums best.

    Perez, what's up with you and Kelly Clarkson? Why do you have seem to constantly bring up here record sales, her billboard positions, etc the hatred? Save the bad comments for the bad singers, for the one's who really have problems bad problems in their lives. The album by all standards is a great album, it's clearly not what they call a pop album but hey let her do her thing. She's a great talent and will with out a doubt bounce back. Look at Christina's work, how she's developed throughout. These are the artist who will grow year after year and whose music will be around for many many years, because they have a voice, because they are a talent. Her sales by all standards are normal in the record business, big sales the first week, major drop the second week.

    Since when is #2 considered bad. Most artists would kill to start out there instead of 200.

    Perez, you're spin on the record sales of Kelly's new album is ridiculous. These are incredible sales figures and chart positions for ANYONE to achieve at this point. You calling this some kind of huge failure makes you look like a douchebag. Despite all evidence, you're sticking with what you PREDICTED would happen before the album came out. And like republicans on the iraq war subject, you're doing the same thing with this.

    The moral is this: Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life. Zero point zero.

    And this website didn't have anything to do with that? You've been setting this up for disaster from day one.

    seriously perez what's your issue with her?? #2 spot is still awesome! i mean i don't see your favs beth ditto or mika on the #1 spot but you dont give them any crap for it

    what the eff did kelly clarkson do to you?? you are so hellbent on spinning her record as a complete failure. the reviews haven't been that bad, and she still has the NUMBER THREE RECORD in the country. not bad for a what was supposed to be an unlistenable "shiteous" album. PLUS, who needs radio singles? Rihanna's all over the radio and Kelly ALREADY outsold her, despite the fact that Rihanna's LP has been out for several weeks longer.

    sounds like you're trying to start shit, prez- luv ya! but i dun think coming in #2 is a total flop! maybe you have to support your predictions and refuse to see otherwise, maybe paris is behind an evil anti-kelli plot, maybe your banging justin g., who knows! shit, i'm not even a kelli fan!
