    and that is supposed to be some kind of accomplishment? Bands that are considered elderly sell more then that

  2. 2

    ! :)

  3. 3

    Ride me.

    this is like the worst album of the year… tracks are sooo boring. Conidering her huge promotion for this the sales are pretty bad..

  5. 5

    Re: flergasfsdfasdf – Are you kidding? Lmao. Selling 5 million copies in 14 weeks is a huge accomplishment. That's more then 1 million copies a month which means, over 250,000 a week. Which, is better then most artists opening week. You're a moron.

  6. 6

    It would be an awesome accomplishment if amazon didn't sell her album for $1 during the first few weeks. So that 2 million sold during the first week has a lot to do with not the quality of the album, but the price.

  7. 7

    funny….we kept getting screamed at by little monsters on here that she sold over 7 million copies love it

  8. 8

    the thigs people buy for 99 cents…

  9. 9

    Perez please… You're embarrassing her fans. It's 7 million. Please correct it or take the post down.

  10. 10

    *correction* Just checked… It's now 8 million.

  11. 11

    Luuve you Perez but it is now 7 million… Love you GAGA and Born This Way is amazing!

    Re: flergasfsdfasdf – i guess being second best just isnt good enough for some people lol

  13. 13

    Re: jayd_jd
    Except of those 2 million sold, 440K were Amazon downloads. The majority sold that first week where physical copies, not mp3s.

  14. 14

    umm WHAT? it has sold over 8 million copies. please change that.

    and then im sure it will increase alot in sales when the best singles will be released like marry the night, heavy metal lover and scheisse.

  15. 15

    Really? The first two Spice Girls albums (hardly classics of music) EACH sold over 20+ million copies. That's nearly 5 million albums PER individual Spice Girl.
    And yes, a good million or so were sold by Amazon for $1.
    Hey Brightside, 250k in a week is nothing; eminem sold 1.7 milion copies of the marshall mathers lp in a week

  16. 16

    obviously when ur record company spends like 20 mill in marketing and promoting for this album ppl are goin buy it….the amount of whoring and selling she did with all the performance, wacky outfits, adds everwhyere….i remember the day before the album came out she took out like 5 pages on the metro newspaper worldwide to promote her self……after all that work and all that money spent she still couldnt beat someone who did none of that like the talented ADELE…so sad for her pathetic attempt she is the laughing stock of the music industry for trying soooo hard to sell instead of just making new and original music

  17. 17

    you cant compare selling albums today with in the 90s and back lol. everyone download music today and dont have to buy anything. and still she sold 8 million in 14 weeks? xD
    and amazon bought her cds for the real price and then they choosed to sell them cheap for their own marketing,.

  18. 18

    She also sold the record for 99 cents… Of course you're going to high high album sales when the music is dirt cheap. It's cheaper than buying one song on iTunes.

  19. 19

    She's now sold wayyyy more albums at full price than that .99 cent promo. That 'argument' is dead in any point it tried to make.

  20. 20

    Re: Jlbfly – Their Reunion tour that was a global sellout would beg to differ on them not having classic music. Go Spice!

  21. 21

    Wonder how many she would of sold without the 99 cent deal.. she's a joke

  22. ed69 says – reply to this


    you are all idiots.. she didnt sell 8 million.. she sold 18 millon copies.. after her smash singles judas & the edge of glory (video of the decade btw) her sales rocketed…

    jeez.. get your facts right people

  23. FS says – reply to this



  24. 24

    @jayd_jd your exxagerating. The promotion was for 2 days not a few weeks, and it was only done in the USA, in total WW numbers the sales made from Amazon are insignificant now

  25. 25

    @idcydk It didnt sell 8 million copies. 8 million copies includes shipments to stores. But a lot of the stock in store shelves has not been sold yet. The 5 million resembles actual sales by comsumers.

  26. 26

    It is a great album…the best songs in my opinion have yet to be released as singles. Cannot wait for the tour!!!Re: flergasfsdfasdf – Bitter, bitter….If you do not consider her a "success", you are just an idiot clouded by your hate and anger….too bad for you.Re: Chrisu – Worst albums of the year? Check again and experts and numbers would tell you differently…oh wait, you are a hater and immune to facts…Re: jayd_jd – Again, bitter bitter…and what do you do with your life other than hate, exactly? Bottom line- Gaga will keep on soaring and put on great shows…you haters can sit and rock in your own hate….Her fans will continue to be inspired and be happy about what she does.

  27. 27

    Didn't Adele sell 10 million with just two singles, no 99 cent album sells, and no attention whoring… Yeah in comparison this doesn't seem like a big deal.

  28. 28

    Re: Jlbfly
    Really? Comparing 90s sales to today's? Pre-Napster and illegal downloading, everyone did really well. Might as well throw in Adele into your argument, and say, "well, Alanis Morissette did better than she did!" Even Vanilla Ice's 1st album did better than the majority of Eminem's individual albums.I doubt, though, the Spice Girls sold those 20 mil within the first 6 months of release. But I beg to differ about one thing: "Spiceworld" was a great album. LOL

  29. 29

    LOL. are you kidding??? this is NOT an accomplishment. I'm not trying to be like Brett Favre, but it took her THAT long just to sell 5 million copies? Wow. She's hopefully on her way out of the spotlight

  30. 30

    Re: Jlbfly – No Strings Attached by *N Sync sold 2.1 million in their first week

  31. 31

    Re: Mrbrightside976 – clearly youre the idiot if shes selling her songs for 99 cents on amazon. desperate much?

  32. 32

    I thought she said she sold 5 million a couple months ago? She is a fraud!!

  33. 33

    How many copies did her record company buy themselves? 1, 2, 3 or 4 million?

  34. @v@ says – reply to this


    That's fortunate, as it keeps her in ostrich outfits.

  35. 35

    There was way under a million sold for 99 cents. And what of it anyways?
    ….I like this record even more than The Fame, not Fame Monster however.

  36. 36

    Right..she's not selling well…it's not much of an accomplishment. Which is why she's projected to have the 2nd best selling album of the year….because it's not selling well.

  37. 37

    yes haters she sold 7 million copies she said it on the jonathan ross show go watch it
    hahahhaha hear that 2nd highest selling album of 2011 ,,,and that's why she is the fucking Queen , just wait and see her rise higher cuz she is in it to win it
    Queen GaGa

  38. 38

    Re: Mrbrightside976 – that would be an impressive sale if she sold that number in us alone but as global sale? NOOO.thats a major flop. take the case of shakira that is an impressive global sale even it didn't do well in us market. drag gag gag is no pop queen.

  39. 39

    funny she sold over 5 millions and all of her music videos are flopping. actually, whos buying this album?

    p-leaz, Born this Way sucks! The Fame is better than this one.

  41. 41

    This is a double album too. Its suppose to be counted twice by the riaa for certification. Any album with 2 CDs over 100 minutes is to be counted twice.

  42. 42

    Re: BAEEAB – Ummmm 3 million + …

  43. 43

    Re: shane_c – Its not a double album, it is only one disc, I know because I've got it sitting here in front of me. The figure is incorrect anyway, last I heard the album had sold approximately 7 million worldwide, average of a million a month for 7 months is not bad, it is no good comparing any modern artist with the kind of sales that stars got a couple of decades ago as there is far too much illegal downloading going on and album sales for ALL artists have suffered as a result. Singles on the other hand have had a resurgence because a single is very cheap to buy as a download. As for the 99c debacle, for the last fucking time Gaga had nothing to do with it and it was only around half a million copies in any event, no way would she have sold her brand new album for 99c, she didn't need to, it went to No 1 in countries all over the world where there was NO 99c promotion, it was USA only and only those of you who live there give a shit about the USA and its crappy BIllboard popularity chart, its sales that count and Gaga has plenty of those ;o)

    Re: jucibr – hmmm music videos flopping??? check the views on judas and you and i and the criticism not only judas is the most expensive music video ever made but it was viewed more than a billion times here in the mid east and there was a huge storm about it and you and i jumped right back into the top 10 while rihanna is stilll suffering LOL
    and born this way is the highest selling album in saudi arabia LMFAO and it sold 7 million copies not 5 m. she said it on the jonathan ross show, thank u

  45. 45

    Re: brienna92 – helloooo she sold 7 million now not 5 m

  46. 46

    She confirmed on Jonathan Ross it's 7 MILLION copies ! :D

  47. 47

    She solds 5MILLION, 7MILLION =shipment to store, that's why she said that. But actually the sales to consumers are 5MILLION.

  48. 48

    Re: brienna92 – Yes but it wasn't totally right (it wa about 2,5 millions when she claimed 5million), as when she said on Jonathan Ross that she sold 7 millions which includes shipment to store and not real sales to consumers, but fans doesn't understand that.

  49. 49

    Re: GAGAlovery – exactly

  50. china says – reply to this


    that makes 5 million idiots in the world. a scary thought.
    though it`s probably hope left, since her little morons buy multiple copies and other people got the nasty thing imposed on them.

  51. 51

    Re: Die4me – No you don't understand,she said 7 million which include putting on sales and actual sales of 5 million. that means 5 million persons bought BTW officialy, and now there are 2 millions album left in stores .

    So yes her album has sold 5 million. And it's already a very good thing.

  52. 52

    Re: Die4me – It was viewed a billion times because its either that or watch camels fucking……..

  53. 53

    Re: Saetana – You have the standard version. The deluxe version has 2 cds, cd2 has remixes. The international version sold in Japan, Britain, France… has even more remixes and goes way over 100 minutes. Those could be counted twice. She's probably sold a million or so of those. Interscope would have to appeal to the riaa.

  54. 54

    Re: GayRay – haha that's a good one but either way even in the other half of the fucking globe loves her LMFAO so u and those same 10 or 11 other haters on this site ur opinions worth shiit LOL cuz as we all can see she is still winning . NEXT

  55. @v@ says – reply to this


    The album didn't do a thing for me, but I certainly don't begrudge Gaga her sales.

  56. 56

    Re: shane_c – Okay, I don't know how it works in other countries but here in the UK any deluxe version of an album is counted for the charts as being the same as the standard album, however a two disc album would still only count as one sale, the official chart company sets out very clearly what is and is not allowed for albums (and singles) to count for the charts - for example, sales of both the fame and the fame monster were counted as being the same album because the monster tracks fitted in with the chart company's definition of how much "bonus" material can be allowed on an album for it all to count towards mutual sales. If someone bought the fame monster that would count as one sale towards the fame/monster total, the number of discs is irrelevant, to count as two sales the person would have to buy both the fame and the fame monster. As I said, I don't know if this is how it works everywhere but it seems logical to me, a double album is still only one album when it comes to chart position ;o)

  57. 57

    this is a flop.named the worst album of the year.are u kiding me.i1 million she sold it for 99 cents…so she sold 4 millions in a fair way. anyway its a flop.noone will continue to buy it.the songs are terrible.boring.bad. she is done perez.shes a major flop sorry.noonw pays attention to this wannabe anymire

  58. 58

  59. 59

    Whatever happened to Poopsondickstators? I loved reading his deep, mature, thought-provoking comments on every Gaga post.

  60. 60

    Re: Die4me – uhhh You and i is at number 12…and Rihanna just released her song like less than two weeks ago and it's already at number 9….talk shit if you want but rihanna is the queen at chart topping. And half a billion times? my god there really isnt anything to do in the middle east lol

  61. 61
