    WTF? Who the hell is even buying Fantasia's album?? And, why are those numbers so close to Katy Perry??



  2. 2

    i guess Fannys publicity stunt of killing herself right before her album dropped paid off. And also showed that even though Katy's generic pop music had a #1 huge hit, that it didn't transpire to big sales. in 5 years we will all be saying–KATY who?



  3. 3

    I only bought the singles I liked. It's kind of sad though. Fantasia has a hell of a lot better voice and content on her album!!! Why do Americans have such shitty taste??



  4. 4

    Fuck Fantasia. Trying to gain publicity for faking a suicide attempt and just for being a whore.



  5. 5

    I don't get you Perez, any other artist ypu would have downplayed those numbers as disappointing..In my opinion those are not great numbers for Katy. Fantasia's suicide attempt only helped, her numbers are good for her. Had Fantasia not been getting all this publicity her numbers would have been way less than 100,000 units.

    gave mine to the salvation army

    Fantasia: Go try killing yourself again!



  8. 8

    Clearly there are at least 122,000 people out there with no good taste in music.

    Those are really rather piss poor numbers for Katy considering the success of the singles and all the promotion she did. If this was Christina, Perez would be calling it an epic fail.

    Love Katys Album!! Love Fantasia but the album sales would mostly be based on pity sales!!
    Anyways please go check out my music at www.myspace.com/ozonnamusic loves you xox oz

    I couldn't care less about fantasia, but I got Katy's album and I LOVE IT. Only like 1-2 flop songs out of 13….



  12. 12

    No…I liked last Perry´s single though…
    Fantazia?mm… who buys her album?
    btw, who buys music nowadays? hihi…when,u know, u can get it easily for free…



  14. 14

    Ahh, let's all buy Fantasia a Family Size bottle of Aspirin….



  15. 15

    How much did all 122,000 copies set Fantasia back?



  16. 16

    What's really sad for Fantasia is her new CD's are already showing up in Goodwill's Bargain Bins for 5 for a dollar.



  17. 17

    IF U HAVENT HEARD FANTASIA CD ITS NOT RIGHT TO JUDGE IT U HAVE TO LISTEN TO IT BEFORE U SAY ITS NOT GOOD BUT ANYWAY FANTASIA CD IS REALLY GOOD U DONT DEAL WITH HER DRAMA SHE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT NOT YOU AND UR NOT MESSING WITH ALICIA KEYS AND SHE DID THE SAME THING ITS NOT RIGHT TO JUDGE HER MUSIC BASED ON WHAT HAPPENED IN HER PERSONAL CAREER SO GET A LIFE FUCKING HATERS



  18. 18

    its pretty pathetic when you have to orchestrate a fake suicide attempt to sell records…..
    I guess its cheaper than paying for a good team! :)



  19. 19

    Re: CandyEyes – clearly there are 194,000 people with even worse taste.



  20. 20

    and with the amount of promo Katy did for this album..those numbers kinda blow.



  21. 21

    they both sucks. no thanks but i dont buy that crap.



  22. 22

    Oh please! A few weeks ago Hits Daily Double were predicting Katy was going to sell more than Eminems opening week of 741,000. The powers to be are not very happy with her numbers. Let's face it, she sells singles but not albums. Like several have said, if it was any other artist you would be calling those numbers a failure.



  23. 23

    the smell of victory



  24. 24

    i'm really surprised….fantasia sold that many?



  25. 25

    ANY OF THE NEW COMERS OUT THERE CANT SELL MORE THEN THE POP QUENNS MADONNA, XTINA, BRITNEY, THEY ARE THE POP MOTHERS AND PRODIGYCAL DOUGTHERS!!!!!! MADONNA 300.000.000 ALBUMS SOLD !! BRITNEY 85.000.000 XTINA 45.000.000!!! SO WHO IS WHO IN POP MUSIC BIZZ?????? TUCH THAT NEW COMERS BITCHES TUCH THAT.



  26. 26

    sadly Americans have terrible pick for music. seriously. katy is just an autotuned singer. Fantasia actually has a voice and lyrical content, but usually sell less than 100k units. sad that whatever that shit she did gave her hefty unit raise. But really? I remember seeing those units for Christina and you trashed her. You are so bias on your so called friends.



  27. 27

    Mainstream/pop music lovers may not like Fantasia's music, but she still does well on R&B radio. Those are the people that are playing and buying her records and is the audience that makes up the majority of her fanbase.Regardless of what people have to say about her personal life, the girl can sing.



  28. 28

    Fuck no! I actually have a little thing called taste.

  29. JuNoZ says – reply to this

    No but I did support them both by purchasing the singles, I like most from their albums via ITunes.



  30. 30

    but xtina sold MORE than fantasia and FAILED?!



  31. 31

    and as california gurls was such a huge hit surely katy should have sold a lot more



  32. 32

    Fantasia, Ruben Studdard and that grey-haired loser (Taylor Hicks?) are the laughing stocks of American Idol. If they sell more than 1,000 copies of a CD it's room for celebration. My question is…who bought Fantasia's album in the first place? Idiots!



  33. 33

    Love the Tootie look on Fannie. She sure is a beautiful woman. LOLOLOLOL!



  34. 34

    Fantasia is nast…nasty…NASTY!!!! She smells too…Fantasia…you are dirty, filthy, stinky. I bet the children of your man-whore cry themselves to sleep at night because their soryy-ass father is with YOU instead of his family, where he should be!!! You disgusting piece of shit. YOu suck and your music is an abomination…..and so are you.



  35. 35

    Fantasia is homewrecking, cheating ghetto whore. She ONLY did what she did to get sales. Oh she tried to kill herself, give me a fucking break. If THIS is what people constitute as an American Idol, some hood rat who got knocked up underage and has nothing but a shady past then I am sad at what people think an idol should be and she ISN"T one. This is sick.



  36. 36

    i bought katy's lp on the 1st day of release (in germany)
    it's soooo good! the lyrics are amazing, and so are the beats! PLUS: the cd smells like candy! go katy!!!!



  37. 37

    I am embarrassed at the state of music in the U.S. I think we need another British Invasion.



  38. 38

    i got both albums and i have to say Fantasia's was worth the money I should of got Katy's off limewire…she sounds like a robot on all the songs…smh, i can tell Fantasia put her heart&soul into this album. END OF STORY.



  39. 39

    Ok WHO IS FANTASIA again?
    no clueeee



  40. 40

    The other issue here is Christina whose sold 113k and did'nt have a top10 hot100 hit gets called a flop, but her numbers were similar to Fantasia's, on the other hand Katy sales close to or around 200k with two massive singles and she gets praised for her sales. U are a bias pig. The epitomy of a true hater.



  41. 41

    so are they both Flops because u called Xtina a flop and well she hasnt promoted. hmmm and it sold so little haha



  42. 42

    love katy perry
