    Haha, people have ultra crap taste in music OR they downloaded for the sake of making a parody of these songs due to the fact they do not wish to spend their hard earned cash on crappy music :D
    That picture of Katy is just.. horrific.

  2. 2

    it's funny to me how you make a huge thing out of christina aguilera's not myself tonight video being named the worst music video of 2010, but you don't bother to even notice how bionic is the second most illegally downloaded album of the same year. just sayin'

  3. 3

    even illegally what a sad year -decade- for music !

  4. 4

    Re: bolseye – Yeah it was illegally download because nobody wanted to pay for the piece of shit.

  5. 5

    It proves that pepole are interested in Christina Aguilera! Her cd is the second on the list, why can't you notice that, Perez???

  6. 6

    apparently people understand the shit they listen too isn't worth a dime…………

  7. 7

    I love gaga

  8. 8

    wow how anyone can look up to someone who simiulates sperm coming out of their tits to try and get attention really needs help. this is the lowest anyone out there as sank in a good while.

  9. 9

    anyone else notice that under tracks it says "telephone" - britney spears…?

  10. 10

    Re: IhateObama1 – Actually dipshit, the album isn't shit. If it wasn't for the Gaga comparison's her album would have done damn good. Get your head out of your ass and stop being hating whore

  11. 11

    is anybody out there still buying music?

  12. 12

    Re: ldavner – Yes, that's because "Telephone" was originally written for Britney Spears by Lady Gaga, however Jive Records rejected the song for the final cut of her album "Circus". So the only version out there is the demo version

  13. 13

    Re: ldavner – Britney has a cover on this on youtube. sounds ok for a demo.

  14. 14

    Re: ldavner – Britney recorded a test of this track but it never went further than that

  15. 15

    Re: allykisskiss – have you seen your picture that scares the shit out of me

  16. 16

    It's full of crap!

  17. 17

    so bionic and not myself tonight were among the top illegal downloads? funny how perez ignored that LOL
    clearly it wasnt that bad then - why pay for something you want if you can get it for free?

    Christina Aguiler'a Bionic would've done soooo well, probably the highest selling album of 2010, if people had actually bought the cd. She's still the best regardless.

  23. 23

    I'm sure they'll all be fine!! Check out my lifestyle site:

    I downloaded cant be tamed. I was impressed. The singles from that cd were bad the album had a lot of substance and was beautiful.

  25. 25

    Re: IhateObama1 – Not true. The cd was really good. People are just poor.

  26. 26

    Re: hangook – This is sooo true. I mean Lady GaGa is good, but she's not the only pop singer in the world. I don't get why people always do that to Christina. Plus, she was working on this album before Lady GaGa came out.

  27. 27

    Re: Andy_Beaux – That's so ture :) Haters, fall back! …if ya don't like it, fuck you!

  28. 28

    Re: bolseye – Yeah coz no-one wanted to waste their money on buying it.

  29. J17 says – reply to this


    wow it's amazing to see that lady gaga's unreleased song is in that list. it's sad that people download illegal music. buy artists and songs that you support!

  30. 30

    Christina's album didn't do well not only because everyone went to download it rather than buy it, but because she alienated her fans when the album came out. Take note that Rihanna's album is the #1 most downloaded, yet that album and the singles from that album have done much (and are still doing) much better than Christina's. If you connect with your fans, people will support you and buy your music.

  31. 31

    Looks like no one wanted to download Lady CaCa's album.

  32. 32

    Im not surprised that Justin Bieber isn't on the track and album list. Thats cause us fans always buy his albums instead of downloading them illegally. We understand that in order to support him, we have to actually purchase the album. Maybe you people should start doing the same thing to support your favorite artists. Illegal downloading is just stealing from them.

  33. 33

    Whoever was the IT engineer who said that 80% of what people have in the PC is just TRASH, he was right.

  34. 34

    so , BIONIC was the second most downloaded album of the year??????????????”' ejjejeje

  35. 35

    Re: **KC** – Rihannas albums is not even platinum in the US.. her official album sales failed.

  36. 36

    Wow Miley was in all of them, I feel sorry for her but yeah I dl a week before it was out! but i got cd/dvd for christmas so it's ok!

  37. 37

    I'ma let you finish - but Taylor Swift made one of the best country-pop albums of all time. you all can shit on everyone else on that list, that's fine, but Taylor has also SOLD the most albums this year. and anyone thats actually listened to the album would know its amazing. and the fact that she writes and performs her own songs live and plays the guitar and piano pretty much makes her one of the only true musicians out there. whether you like country music or not, whether you like taylor or not, it can't be denied!

  38. 38

    Great year for music, I really enjoyed music this year, I've downloaded most of them, and I bought Bionic, Can't be tamed & Teenage dream, and I'm waiting for Loud to come to my country! I use to download albums and then buy them if I like them. I think the music in there is great… POP MUSIC rules! :) And if you don't like it f*ck you! (Xtina's Dixit)

    None of these artists is hurting for money. In fact all of them are essentially set for life if they don't spend it all on coke and they rely on skilled money managers. So the fact that they are not making the kind of money recording artists did in the 60s-90s on record sales is not really that big a deal for any of them on these lists. And the record companies have been taking the public to the cleaners with outrageous monopoly prices for decades, so it's about time that the public got back some of what's been stolen from us. Since the record companies have been violating the anti-trust laws for a hundred years, we needed something like pirate downloads to come along and force them to lower their criminal prices. I think if you are going to support artists by buying their records, you should focus on the lesser-known people–not the ones on this list–who rely more on the sales to make an honest living. The smart people on the lists, Christina and Miley, for example, are developing acting careers parallel to their singing careers. And all of these people make a lot more money on tours and other appearances than they do on record sales. Christina made $2 million for singing at a birthday party and Miley made $1.2 million for a half-hour promo concert for a Microsoft Store. One thing is for sure, these pirate downloads have now surpassed record sales as the best indication of who are the most popular musicians.

    Wow… that pic really brings out Katy's whore side. Her muzak makes my ears bleed. Even though I can download all that crap for free it's not worth wasting bandwidth!

  41. 41

    Re: Mad Dog – No, people actually went out and bought hers.

  42. 42

    Re: oxcarlima
    Rihanna's LOUD has only been out for little over a month and it's the 15th best selling album WW for the whole year. It's already sold 2 mil WW. Maybe 20 years ago that would have been a failure, but in today's industry, that's considered a success.

  43. 43

    Wow. Katy Perry is so tacky. What a soulless wench for agreeing to sell bright colors, sexual innuendo, and awful costumes with a "catchy beat" to naive young teens. Booooo.

  44. 44

    My god this is a bad era for music. Who knew our parents would prove to be way, way , way , way cooler than us

  46. 46

    to no. 9 - yea it say telephone britney spears because lady gaga wrote for britney for her circus album but they nvr used it… So gaga used it for herself. Besides if you go on youtube youll see that the recording of britney is no longer available.

  47. 47

    all the kylie minogue downloads are probably from straight men too embarrassed to go get it at the stores.lol

  48. 48

    see perez. ppl did like bionic

    just not everyone buys music anymore.
    her songs and video and album are on all the lists.
