Another Idol BOMB!

| Filed under: American Idol



Totally expected, but a burn none the less.

Allison Iraheta, who placed fourth in the last season of American Idol, might want to start looking at colleges and other avenues of life because the music biz ain't for her.

According to reports, her debut album Just Like You brought in piss poor numbers, only selling about 25-30k in its first week.

Of course, she was up against heavy hitters like Lady Gaga, Susan Boyle, and Idol cohort Adam Lambert.

Then again, if you can't handle the competition that usually means you aren't any.

Time to get a new job.

  2. 2

    She's a young talent with plenty of time to grow and develop. Fuck off Perez.

    With Kris Allen debuting at number and falling this week 200% to number 33 and his single peaking at 41 on the Hot 100 now falling to 47 this do not look so good for that idol.
    Allison now does not look good.
    Why did we enjoy them so much during the show, including Danny and the guy with the mole? I think we enjoy the heat of competition and also that they are singing covers.

  4. 4

    maybe you actually listened to her album, it's amazing.

  5. 5

    That's still 30,000 more than Slimy sold in her first week.

  6. 6

    Did she do any promotion? I feel like I had no idea she was even releasing an album.. I think she is pretty talented based off of AI

  7. 7

    Her cd's not 1/2 bad. Sorta sounds like Pink.

  8. 8

    Uhm, Perez. Her CD just came out this Tuesday, December 1st. The 25-30k figure is what she is predicted to sell, not what she has sold.

  9. 9

    it's a shame that the Idol people have so much control over these kids…they need to stop manufacturing people. Otherwise I think they would do better. But I will say there are some nice tunes on her album…hate the first single! But give "Scars" a listen…it's beautiful!

  10. 10

    how ironic that even with all the self-promotion of SLIIMY SLIIMY SLIMMY - he STILL can't sell shit in the USA.

    I think the bomb is your tour, your book, cocoperez…funny b/c all u do is self-promote…does anybody besides u give u credit for anything?

  11. 11

    Perez is like really stupid. If he only knew her numbers havent been out yet… loser… and yes, maybe her predicted numbers arent so great but her album has lots of potential…

    Allison is way better than anyone that went on that stupid P.Hilton Tour…

    So Yo Perez!!!! Buy her album and Listen to good stuff….

    Of course he didn't mention that her album is getting rave reviews….

  12. 12

    that's more than slimey has sold in the past 2.5 months!

  13. 13

    hey tubby lady gaga's debuted the fame with 24000 and she had 2 #1 singles. That was what you call a bomb. Thankfully gaga sold a lot more over time so give Allison who's had barely any promotion(but still sold more then gaga's debut) a few months before you call her a bomb.

  14. 14

    You have some nerve. did you even listen to her album??? It is KILLER!!! it's been out for two fucking days. give this young lady a chance already!

  15. 15

    i never liked her.

  16. 16

    This girl has a pretty good album - there's a listening party at AOL music. I think there are some hits on her album: Holiday, Scars, Trouble Is. She's mad talented and only 17… bright future ahead of her.

  17. 17

    wow perez must be very jealous with this girl, HERE PEREZ, IF PEOPLE ARE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN YOU AND HER, MOST THEY WOULD CHOOSE HER. I guess you are sore loser then!

  18. 18

    I didnt even know she had an album

  19. 19

    I think there are lots of singles on there actualy….I have listened to it a few times…and though it sounds like a Pink album….its not too bad.
    That was kinda harsh Perez….

  20. 20

    It's too early to judge Perez. Give her time. It's only been a week.
    If her music gets picked up by a film producer or gamer and gets played in a movie or video game then her career could go the opposite way. You never know. This post reminds me of those idiots at msn who called Feist a one-hit wonder cuz she took a break from touring & recording.

  21. 21

    Come on Perez…admit it, you're just dying to have her gorgeous hair. Thanks for letting some other people know her album came out.

  22. 22

    Her album is getting incredible reviews. An A- from Entertainment Weekly. What the fuck are you talking about "time to get a new job"??? Thought you were all about nurturing talent and loved the music business.

  23. 23

    It's really not a bad album. She sounds a lot like Pink. My two favorite tracks are Friday I'll be Over U, and Scars is awesome.
    Too bad, she's a sweet kid.

  24. 24

    She's very talented, but it's a crowded business now. I wish her luck, because she's very talented!!!!

  25. 25

    Precious GaGa sold like 25K her first week…so Allsion did better than that beast.

    Kris Allen fell about 60%, not 200%. Lord. That's pretty much normal.
    His single is now #37.

    Ever get the feeling Lambert fans like to spread disinformation? Petty.

  26. 26

    Damn Perez, if you actually LISTENED to the album, i guarantee you would change your opinion on her!! she's damn good!!! and she is getting the best critical reviews of the 3 idol debuts this year, so suckkk on that. She will be multi-platinum in 2010. MARK MY WORDS.

  27. 27

    What a stupid post…the CD is fantasic and came out on December 1st. It's had little to no promotion so far and she is still managing to sell a shitload of cd's. The last thing she should do is quit the music industry as she's an incredible talent and one of the most talented teenage artists I have ever seen. Get a clue Mario.

  28. 28

    Perez you are a fat ugly asswipe and you should actually get a REAL job. The 30,000 is only a prediction, her album just came out Tuesday. Get a fucking clue fatass.

  29. MP says – reply to this


    You can listen to her CD on AOL's Music Page, it's not that good. There's a song called Scars or Scarred that's very good. She sounds like Pink.

  30. 30

    Perez, you are awesome, but you are WRONG. THE ALBUM CAME OUT ON TUESDAY THIS WEEK, NOT THE WEEK OF 23rd. Repeat, it was released DECEMBER 1ST!

  31. 31

    Perez hates her because she has a vagina. What a heterophobe!!!

  32. 32

    Does it make you happy to rank on 17 year olds? Is that your life goal? Really? Allison just released her album two days ago..those are the PREDICTED sales..learn how to read. She's a new artist that didn't have as much promotion as let's say Adam or Kris. And she's still doing pretty fucking well. Great, even. Did you even take a listen to at least half of the songs on that album? Because they're fucking amazing. No lie. All the tracks perfectly showcase her voice. Both her vocal range and vocal power soar on all 13 tracks. It's one of the strongest albums from this year! I suggest Trouble Is, Holiday, D is for Dangerous, Don't Waste the Pretty, No One Else, and You Don't Know Me. By the way…Adam just totally called out your lame ass. Smooth move.

  33. 33

    Damn. :( I bought this album Tuesday and it's incredible. It's a mix of young P!nk and Kelly Clarkson. Sooo soooo sooo good. Everyone should buy it! :D

  34. 34

    Allison might have WON AI if she competed a year or 2 later. She has an amazing voice, but she need to develop a little and show more depth. Give her time. It probably was a mistake to rush this album out in such a competitive time.

  35. 35

    Hey, jerk, why don't you try laying off of Allison? Like Adam said, she can sing circles around half the talentless hacks out there. She's amazing. She doesn't have to be popular to be talented. The fans she has knows how amazing she is. Screw off. She's just a kid. Cut her some slack, ass hole.

  36. 36

    I like Allison so I'm sad to hear this. She's young and very talented so I hope her label cuts her some slack.

  37. 37

    Yet another reason I fucking hate Perez Hilton. This first week is exactly what the label wanted to start with. How about we check back a year from now and see where this album and artist is? You're a moron!

  38. 38

    FYI, Perez, your little buddy "Glambert" ADORES this girl and thinks she's a mega-talent. I don't think he would be very happy to know you're dissing her like this!

  39. 39

    What's with the hate, Perez? She's freakin' 17. Buttney Spear-Me wasn't the winner on Star Search. Allison's album got an "A" from EW.

  40. 40

    I'm going to purchase this album for my kid simply because if I have to listen to another autotuned Disney princess I will scream.

  41. 41

    ""According to reports, her debut album Just Like You brought in piss poor numbers, only selling about 25-30k in its first week. Of course, she was up against heavy hitters like Lady Gaga, Susan Boyle, and Idol cohort Adam Lambert."
    Just FYI: She was not 'up against' those other three, as her album was released the following week.

  42. 42

    That just goes to prove how much of a she-man woman hater PH is. The girl's got chops, just cause her debut sales aren't blockbuster doesn't mean she should hang it up. She will find her market, her niche and will do just fine with her talent.
    PH is just stuck on Glambert's sh*t with his typical man-crush!

  43. 43

    Who cares what the fat fuck thinks. Allison is incredibly talented and with any sort of promotion, she will do just fine. She'll be around for awhile. Perez's big ass head is so far up Lambert's ass, that he doesn't know of what he speaks.
    Jealous much?

  44. 44

    I don't think Alison really ever found her audience. If I were handling her I would have her go out on tour as a second act on someone else's bill. Kind of like Kelly Pickler and Carrie Underwood. Alison needs to build her fanbase. She might never emerge as a big headliner, but she could work steady, doing live concerts, etc.

  45. 45

    Sanjaya's EP sold more than that.

  46. 46

    with love perez: she was probably one of the most talented on the show. most of the % of voters are teenage girls who vote based upon how "hot" the guys are. she is a true vocalist and she needs some serious publicity… JUST SAYIN'.

  47. 47

    her album came out 2 days ago…

  48. 48

    check out this video of Allison singing "Don't Waste The Pretty" she sounds aMazing!

  49. 49

    seriously? her album came out on Tuesday. Check your facts. And she's a new artist, why don't you try giving her some support? She has a KILLER voice, and is only 17. Grow up.

  50. 50

    Her company didn"t buy any advertizing. This is why Perez is bashing this singer.

  51. 51

    Her numbers aren't even in Perez you idiot! And she definitely is talented. Your Slimey idiot with the really stupid name can't even sell enough in the U.S.! Jealous much you fatso??

  52. 52

    Did anyone even know she was releasing an album? Did anyone even know the actual American Idol winner Kris Allen released one? Talk about shitty promotion. Looks like everyone was too busying focusing on Adam and said, "fuck the rest."

  53. 53


  54. 54

    Considering she hasn't done any promotion for the album, I think that's damn good. I've listened to the album and I think it's my favorite album of the year. She really can sing. I think that she's going to gain popularity over time (and with promotion). I do wonder what you have against her?

  55. lobri says – reply to this


    That album has been playing non stop on my ipod since I got it. It's really good, and she's underrated. Just because she doesn't cause a lot of controversy, she's overlooked. People just need to listen to the damn album and give the girl some time to come into her own. I'm really pissed about this article!

  56. 6one9 says – reply to this


    I'll call bull`shit on one!! I like her “ a lot!! ;)

  57. 57

    I predicted this way back. Fine she has a decent voice but she has no x factor at all. She's awkward, moves spastically when she sings and oh god don't get me started when she speaks. I don't care if she's "only 17"- this girl is inarticulate.

    I agree with Perez on this one- time to go back to school.

  58. 58

    she's a debut artist! most of them don't sell 100k in the 1st week! she has the talent to be around a long time, and if you did any reading you would know that Allison's album is getting better critical reviews than either Kris or Adam. She's gonna build more fans the more they see of her. Listen to her album, her voice is fucking incredible

  59. 59

    fuck you perez!!! ALLISON FOREVVERR

  60. 60

    Damn thanks for letting me know it was out… i'm totally gonna buy it!

  61. 61

    Perez WTF. The reason you're hating on Allison is that she's so much prettier than you are. MEEEEOOOOOWWWWWRRRRRR

  62. 62

    WAIT A SECOND!!! Your so-called wifey, debut with only 24,000 that is less than 25k-30k. I guarantee you didn't give a shit about lady gaga until she announced she was bi. You always talk about how people a prejudice against gay people, well you are seeming kind of prejudice against straight people. Don't get me wrong I like lady gaga, Bad Romance is my number one song, but to tell a 17 YEAR OLD to quit music, that isn't right. What if someone told you to quit this website just because you didn't get much website traffic, how would you feel?

  63. 63

    Perez - have you even listened to this CD? Out of ALL the Idol releases this year, this is the most promising release of them all. Every song is good! You focus too much on trying to bring people down. Why not help promote her like you do with Gaga's disco stick up your ass.

  64. 64

    Has anyone ever told you that you have poor taste? Probably, huh? Really, though, she can sing 100x better then you write and she's at least the same in the beauty deparment.

    It's you who needs to be looking for a new job, honey. ;]
    No one likes you, anyway.

  65. 65

    Re: UGA1234 – He has not mentioned Slimmy forever. Do you think Slimmy is doing everything possible to get out of the deal.

  66. 66

    I love all the posts. Allison is an amazing talent and had a real gift. It's amazing to me that someone who's talent is gossip can criticize anyone who can sing and perform as well as her.

  67. 67

    Fuck you perez. Who the fuck are you to tell people what they should and should not do?

    If she wants to sing and just one single person enjoys her music then she is successful.

    I loath the singing voices of the three heavy hitters that you mentioned. But I actually like Alison's voice. Her version on idol of I can't make you love me was stunning.

    I'm guessing that she is not paying you to advertise for her like your heavy hitters are.

  68. 68

    Simon was right when he told Allison she just isn't very likeable…

  69. 69

    Allison's cd didn't debut until this week. Adam's and Gaga's debuted LAST week. How can they know final numbers yet it hasn't even been a whole week.

  70. 70

    This is probably the bitchiest post from Perez in a while. How fucked up. This is the Perez that sucks… and I'm not even familiar with this chick.

  71. ap076 says – reply to this


    Re: storm457 – I fucked up big time on the % thanks for fixing it. Now go to the Billboard Hot 100 and see Kris Allen at 47 down from a peak of 41. You have to admit this is a major fail for an Idol Winner. It seems the record company lost all confidence in him and the album and is therefore not promoting it, especially compared to the 2nd place finisher who wears too much make-up.

  72. ap076 says – reply to this


    Re: perezhasanalleakage – You raise an interesting point Sliimy was the French selection for the EBBA or European Border Breaker Awards. He now competes against 9 other artists for the win by a public vote. Either Perez and he have parted ways as Perez has not mentioned this once or Perez does not want his people to go to the site and vote against Sliimy.

  73. 73

    Her songs and first single are actually really good.

  74. 74

    Ok, first get informed, doesn't even have the complete 4 days out!
    Her album it's amazing!
    Why do you hate on her?
    Que no apoyas a los latinos?!
    Seriously porque solo tienes que apoyar a los gays?
    ya aburres con Adam lambert y lady gaga

  75. 75

    4 days after an album release with little or no promo and Perez dismisses one of the most talented young singers in the US. What a complete idiot.
    The album is very very good and anyone seeing Allison Iraheta's acoustic sets can see the massive talent she has.
    People should enjoy and nurture that talent not try and rubbish it.

  76. 76

    Yeah,get a new job,like Perez tried to do with his messed up concert!
    Next thing you know,you'll be getting food stamps!

  77. 77

    Now why would someone color their hair such an atrocious color to draw attention to the ugly, pig-like face?

  78. 78

    Has anyone every notice that Perez never have anything nice to say about a girl. Notice how he goos over the guys, only Gaga he likes because she maybe a tranny, and because she said she loves the gays. Perez come on, do`nt be so sexual about everything and report the truth. And I notice you did not put Rihanna`s name, she beat your precious Gaga. And Adam had to stimulate sex in order to be #2. Remember people the race is not for the swift, but for the strong, lets see who comes out on top at the end of the year. Wish everyone the best, I am a fan of Gaga and Riri , so I want them both to succed.

  79. 79

    You're a real b*tch you know that? Se's amazing, and Album sales DO NOT in any way translate whether she is talented or not. Miley Cyrus is high on the charts selling…yet she couldn't sing to save her life. You still kiss her ass though…


  80. 80

    Why don't you talk about her more on your site? Get her a little following going? I love GaGa like, a lot but you can replace *some* GaGa stories with Allison news and maybe give her a chance to be competition. Oh right, she's not gay or paying you to talk about her…my bad.

    She's actually really talented. She just needs a little FREE pub.

  81. 81

    Rihanna debuted higher than Gaga and sold almost as much as Lambert. Why are you ignoring her? her album also has 80 on metacritic. She's doing better than your girl gaga and that's why you hate her.

  82. 82

    :( too bad… I like Allison.

  83. 83

    Unfortunately, I think this is the fate of most Idol-alumni. I'm sure her music would be better if she had more of a say in it.

  84. 84

    She is great just did not get any promotion. Please Perez its not all about GaGa! Lets see how long she will last! I'm already tired of you talking about her!

  85. 85

    fuck you perez! shes a growing artist and she probably sells more than the people on your stupid tour. after reading this i went and bought a couple of her songs on itunes and shes pretty good from coming straight off american idol! have a little respect

  86. 86

    lol whut? Her album is actually the better albums out of Kris and Adam's, clearly you haven't even bothered to listen to her album + she's not even being promoted. If people like Robin Thicke and Lady Gaga can have subpar opening numbers and still hit massive numbers OVERALL then who gives a fuck? Allison is mad talented, bitch can sing and she's 17 she will just keep getting better.
