    32 million sales mark!!!! Wow that is impressive.



  2. 2

    I am amazed! Britney Spears album Femme Fatale went Platinum and debuted at #1 with very little promotion. And Britney's second single "Till the World Ends" is currently #4 on itunes too… and again with little promotion. This shows the power of Britney Spears.

    It's not 32 million, it's 1 million.



  4. 4

    She has sold 32 million certified albums.. not all from this one obviously



  5. 5

    Perez this means that Britney has sold 32 million albums to date NOT that she has sold 32 million copies of Femme Fatale. It hasn't even pushed 500,000 in the US yet let alone selling that many worldwide. Stop being sloppy in your damn reporting.



  6. 6

    Well done britney!



  7. 7

    "How I Roll" should be released next IMO!! What do you all think??

  8. sanaa says – reply to this

    Certified 1 million sales in the U.S. 32 million certified total now in the U.S.
    She's sold another 60 million or so internationally.



  9. 9

    Hmmm…that would make it the biggest selling album of all time in a little over a week. Pretty impressive–or just lousy reporting.



  10. 10

    What in the hell? Perez your facts are completely wrong. It's 32 million certified and she hasn't even hit 500K sold yet in the states. She's not even gold yet.



  11. 11

    32 it's tottaly impossible this days not even GAGA do that so let's face it this news is fake 32 mILLION! bull-shit. if it's true that shows that people does not want artists they want fakness…



  12. 12

    I bet Kat Graham will NEVER sell 1 million copies of her crap. She might sell 10 copies and that will be family members who are forced to enjoy her mindless music.
    Poor sad lopsided faced girl. Vampire Dairies will be her biggest claim to fame and then she will fade away just like her looks will do in 5 years. But since she is the "favourite" of the Gays, she'll be a hit on the Club circuit. She can sing her Non Selling Crap and we can stand there thinking "Who is she and what did she do again?"
    Just ranting…..

    FEMME FATALE DID GO PLATINUM BUT IT DIDN'T SELL 32 MILLION!!!

    Her U.S. Albums Certifications Now Total 32 Million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not Femme Fatale alone.

    Pop superstar Britney Spears achieves another benchmark with her current album, Femme Fatale. This week, Spears’ seventh album – which spawned the No. 1 hit “Hold It Against Me” and the Top 5 smash “Till The World Ends”- is certified platinum by the RIAA. This latest news brings Britney’s U.S. albums certifications to the 32 million sales mark.



  14. 14

    what misleading BS!

    her albums flopping worldwide for starters! dropped out of the top10 everywhere except stupid america that still seems interested for some odd reason. She's useless and lazy. Obviously can't sing or even dance anymore. Trainwreck hasbeen.



  15. 15

    Well 32 or 1 million people are just tone def all she does is whines in a nasaly voice and make millions it's sick!!



  16. 16

    i was thinking to myself….32 millions copies and thats ONLY considered platinum??? then i realized you suck at reporting. Still impressive tho and the album is so fucking sexy. Re: LisaRose – no that song sucks lol it might be the worse on the whole album



  17. 17

    I love Britney Spears!!!



  18. 18

    You moron! 32 million copies? Femme fatale?

    Since when you go platinum selling 32 million copies. Wouldnt that be 32 platinum?

    You are as retarded ans moronic (Gaga's favorite words) that I am in shock.



  19. 19

    I don't know where you got your information, but 32 million is literally an impossibility. Only a handful of albums have EVER reached that sales figure and they few that have did so during an era of blockbuster album sales (the late 70s and early 80s) AND over a period of years, not weeks. Among the few are the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, Michael Jackson's Thriller, and I'm pretty sure Meat Loaf's debut Bat Out of Hell. Not one of those attained that figure in the first few months of its release. These days ALL albums are selling a fraction of what even run-of-the-mill hits sold then. Evidence of the drop is that Spears' own first-week sales on this album were her second lowest ever. When you add up sales to date in ALL countries, you can scrounge up maybe two or three million in sales. According to Wikipedia, Britney's debut, which sold 26 million albums — again over a period of years — is her most successful to date, and it was released prior to the file-trading era and the collapse of CD sales. If you're going to exaggerate, at least make it believable. There will never be another album that sells 32 million — and there were very few to begin with.



  20. 20

    OH STFU FAT BOY!!!! THAT'S A MILLION ALBUMS SHIPPED (ACCORDING TO RIAA) NOT SOLD YOU IDIOT. SOUNDSCAN SAYS SHE BARELY SCRAPED BY 440K TO DATE, NOT EVEN GOLD LET ALONE PLATINUM.



  21. 21

    Re: LisaRose – No, definitely one of the worst on the album. Next single should either be "Drop Dead Beautiful", "Inside Out" or "Criminal"



  22. 22

    Re: LisaRose – or even up n down, or gasoline or trouble for me or seal it with a kiss. so many possibilities for singlesssssss



  23. 23

    That's so cool! I am so proud of her. Keep on dancing till the World Ends!



  24. 24

    Re: kris101987 – ROFL! She has sold 100 Million certified albums, not 32, IDIOT! xD



  25. 25

    Re: Maximiliano Martorell – LOL! Not even GaGa as if she was idk xD CaCa's new album will FLOP big time! :D



  26. 26

    Who buys and listens to this stupid shit?



  27. 27

    Literally thought WTF when I read this. 32 million copies of Femme Fatale sounded impossible. But of course, Perez fucked up and mislead everyone to think that.

    Britney wishes she could sell that many copies of that crappy album. It debuted at #1 but only because it's Britney. She dropped to #2 the following week and kept on dropping.



  28. 28

    Anybody know what her 3rd single is?? So far so good I think, and I love love "I Wanna Go" I hope that plays on the radio. I've had my problems with Brit ever since she ripped me off at the Houston Circus tour when she didn't say ONE live word…. but I do like the new album. :) See, just cause I love Gaga doesn't mean I'm a totally biased hater. I went to Brit's comeback tour, bought her new album, I like her… I just don't think she matches my Gaga on any level.



  29. 29

    The album ha sold a million copies in USA and Brit has sold more than 32 millions only in USA. Worldwide, the numbers are even more impressive when notably miss Spears has sold more than 100millions copies so far with all of her albums and almost 2 millions wit FF already!



  30. 30

    congrats brit!!!
    wheres gaga's congrats? you know, about that hyped up single "Judas" that you claim is "smashing" the charts? it dropped off the hot 100 top 10…that sucks…im surprised you even acknowledged britney's success…how about being a real journalist and report gaga's failure?



  31. 31

    For those of you saying he's wrong, no he is very right. Britney's team confirmed it today. So no, this isn't bullshit. And he means she's sold 32 million albums across the US of all the albums of her career, not Femme Fatale. One CD would be impossible for anybody, especially with music pirating nowadays. The numbers are even bigger if you include worldwide. Congrats Britney! You really deserve it because this CD is amazing.
    And I personally think "I Wanna Go" she be her next single. It's upbeat and would be great for summer.



  32. 32

    I think she had said something about big fat bass being her next single…. and I wanna go would probably hit number 1 if it was released for the summer



  33. 33

    I absolutely adore Britney.



  34. 34

    this show the amazement of this album FemmeFatale is the best album keep buying it people and for those haters stay shut i know jealousy is taking over you. so stop being jealous and just be proud of how amazing britney is that with little promotion got an album to platinum nor like other artist that have to promote like hell to get it to platinum like lady gaga rihanna and katy perry. STOP HATIING this is the second album that got to platinum this year after ADELE'S 21



  35. 35

    what? she sold 32 mln copies of it?? really? I can't believe



  36. 36

    I thought this was a late April Fools joke or something. Horrible reporting, Perez. I think you did it on purpose lol.

    Fun Fact: Mariah Carey's 1993 album, Musicbox, sold 32 Million copies WW. That's what I thought of when I read this.



  37. 37

    All thanks to her owners following the social engineering program for the masses.



  38. 38

    32 million ?????!!!! just impossible ! maybe 3,2 millions worlwide…
    I like Britney, but Perez Hilton only writes bullshit !



  39. 39

    Some would say this is generic pop, and she tried hard to sound like everyone else - but I think this is the best album the planet has seen and better than Beatles, Motown, Dylan, Beach Boys, combined. Every song is a classic that others will want to record. Look for more versions of each of these, than there has been for White Christmas. Best recording every made … isn't it?



  40. 40

    HER success??? Please - - the credit should go to the producers, studio mixers, PR people, photo shop and air brush people. ANYONE can go in and sing with a nasally, mickey mouse voice and put out this crap!!! All she did was pop in the studio. I don't understand why teenagers are still into this tard.



  41. 41

    Re: Maximiliano Martorell – Poor Max-y, with his little 2 inch peen. I guess you do have something in common with Lady Gagsga!! LOLZ



  42. 42

    I've seen this same mistake on two sites already. Will somebody please actually READ THE ORIGINAL STATEMENT. it clearly states she has 32 million in US certifications. That's ALL her albums. If she sold that many in so short a time with one album it would be all over the news. With music sales as they are in today's industry how can you even read that and think 32 million of one album is believable. GET YOUR FUCKING FACTS STRAIGHT or Re-word the post because it's VERY MISLEADING.



  43. 43

    Who writes this shlop??? Full of mistakes… Bad Bad reporting!



  44. 44

    Funny, because neither the RIAA nor Billboard are confirming this story. But since it comes from Britney's people, it MUST be true.
    But let's say for the record that the album DID go platinum. That only means it SHIPPED a million, not SOLD. And since reports are saying she's only sold a little more than 400K of the album so far in the US, that means that there's a lot of copies still sitting in stores and warehouses as we speak.
    Whatever. Believe what you want people, but try to learn something about the industry before you get so giddy over some bad reporting on here.



  45. 45

    This is directly from the Amplifier:
    "Britney Spears has sold 459,000 copies of Femme Fatale in the album's first four weeks on the Billboard Top 200, according to Nielsen SoundScan. But her label has shipped 1 million copies of the disc, which means she has earned a platinum plaque. Get it? Congratulations, you have passed Record Industry Math 101.
    How does this work, exactly? Record labels place manufacturing orders for their records, then pay the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) a tiny fee to conduct an audit to "certify" how many albums have shipped. The RIAA calculates this figure based on number of physical discs sent to retail minus the amount that have been returned (a full explanation can be found on the association's website, but there's no real talk about how digital sales have affected this metric). A record has to be on sale for a minimum of 30 days to be certified, which is exactly how long Femme Fatale has been in stores — as in, nowhere near long enough for anyone to have done any returning.
    So why rush to certify the disc? Team Spears is likely trying to stoke an air of success as tickets for her Femme Fatale Tour go on sale this weekend."

    That's nice that she sold so much but it's not helping my pockets so all I care is that she made a good album, and she exceeded my expectations. Femme Fatale is one of the best pop albums ever, I'm so happy that all the songs are great and there's no filler. I think her next single should be I wanna go-it's one of those songs that are instantly catchy. My favorites are seal it with a kiss and I'm starting to really like trip to my heart and inside out is good too. They're all good but those are the ones that come to my mind first, & up n down.



  47. 47

    Re: xKatAB – If you read the article, he's saying that she sold 32 million of Femme Fatale, which is why people are calling b.s. We are aware she has probably sold 32 million records total spanning her entire career.



  48. 48

    Sorry Perez but she hasn't even hit half a million in the US. Are they paying you to promote her? This record isn't doing anywhere near as well as in the past, and she's way behind Gaga and Katy Perry.



  49. 49

    You know this is very suspicious because the album hasn't been selling that well to have reached this status in 5 weeks. It's first week it sold 276,000. So in order for it to gave breached the 1 million mark it would have had to have sold 144,800 copies every week after it's debut, which it has not been doing. The album hasn't been selling anything above 90,00 every week since it was first released. So there is no way it has already sold 1,000,000 million copies. This is a load of bs. This is probably info from her label trying to cover up the fact that it flopped.



  50. 50

    platinum is for ONE million…. 32 mill is her US total record.
