Kelly Clarkson's Album Sales Increase 200% After Ron Paul Endorsement!!

Whaaaa?!?

Even though Kelly Clarkson may have lost some Twitter followers after her recent endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, it looks like it was actually a great move on her part as her album sales on Amazon have had a 200% increase in just 72 hours!!!

On Tuesday, her album Stronger was ranked 41 on Amazon's "Movers and Shakers in Music" list. Three days later, (after her endorsement tweet that said "I love Ron Paul), BOOM, the album was bumped up to the #13 spot.

Crazy! Could this be a sign of the times - a foreshadowing when it comes to the presidential race in 2012?? Or did her sales increase just because her name was in the news??

Who knows?! But, way to go, Kelly! Good PR move! LOLz.

  1. 1

    If this is 'true', what a lame reason for people to buy the album.



  2. 2

    Or her new album is just simply amazing. Either way…



  3. 3

    Her new album sucks… I was disappointed, to say the least…



  4. 4

    Or maybe people are just proud of someone who won't bend to public opinion?



  5. 5

    haha its not because of ron, it's because her CD is on sale this week on Amazon and Itunes haha



  6. 6

    Wow! I thought I read the title wrong and assumed the opposite had happened. lol Good for her. She's entitled to her opinion.



  7. 7

    Since Kelly is now a Republican, she should just replace the Republican symbol considering both are elephants. How dare that fat brainless cow support someone like Ron Paul. Maybe she will be grateful of her gay fanbase once they are 'already gone.'



  8. 8

    stavrogin …..you have a lot of nerve calling her names just because of her party affiliation. And you have accomplished WHAT exactly?? I suppose you think we should put that do nothing NOBAMA back in office. How about we put ANYBODY in that might accomplish some kind "change"? Real change this time.



  9. 9

    Might have been a smart move. Everyone knows Ron Paul has an extremely intense following of young people on the internet.

    Re: stavrogin – man you sure are a nasty hateful bitch



  11. 11

    Re: stavrogin – way to to!!! republicans are suicidal scum!



  12. 12

    There is a Ron Paul REVOLUTION underway but the Media and the "business as usual" political allies want to deny it and throw a wet blanket over it, PAUL 2012!



  13. 13

    Re: stavrogin – No worries im sure you received a flu shot and have been drinking fluoride water since birth. Her Gay fan base should be voting for Paul along with all the other races, sexual orientations, and gender because he is fighting for everyone's rights and liberties according to the Constitution not the corrupt government that has left us trillions in debt and millions unemployed. Educate yourself instead of judging a very talented woman's size.



  14. 14

    I LUV KELLY CLARKSON!!!!?



  15. 15

    kelly is great and honest …stop the hate …and please people do some research, learn about 9 11 truth and start asking your government about the real important issues.



  16. 16

    LOL I don't like it when celebs get involved in politics but at least it didn't hurt her =P Get them sales Kelly!

  17. @v@ says – reply to this


    17

    Well, that's not likely a cause and effect. Is it?



  18. 18

    This just shows old white people buying her album for that statement. I mean look at fox news the republican channel. They have million more viewers then cnn or msnbc



  19. 19

    Re: raypearson – the pot calling the kettle black!



  20. 20

    Re: AngelsAdvocate – because there are so many ignorant people in America…they comprise the fan base of Fox (faux) News. Educated people know better and don't watch a propaganda channel.



  21. 21

    WAY TO GO KELLY!



  22. 22

    Democrats = ignorant
    Republicans = true Americans



  23. 23

    Is that where all his campaign funds went? haha Buying up copies of her CD because she "endorsed" him??



  24. 24

    Re: raypearson – hey scum, you always talk shit, without even any fucked up explanation for your nonsense. why don't you elaborate some more or even bette, stick your sewage mouth up your ass!



  25. 25

    LOl what fucking idiots.. so they don't care much for her music but as soon as they find out what party she is into that makes them buy the album? ha XD



  26. 26

    Re: SClub7 – Lol you are a dumb K u n t xD .. nice to know that you think Americans are bigots, racists, hypocritical dumb fucks.. fabulous.. laters



  27. 27

    Kelly Clarkson is either a liar or an idiot. You can't be for Ron Paul and support gay rights ad civil rights. He simply wants to do away with federal laws and regulations. He has made very clear that he supports individual states passing laws that outlaw abortion and homosexuality. He is against the federal goverment stopping the states from imposing whatever racist. homophobic or sexist law that they want. He has a lot of idiot supporters who think that he wants to legalize drugs but he simply wants to do away with federal drug laws but has no problem with state laws which can be as draconion as they want to be.



  28. 28

    republicans=scum! plain simple!



  29. 29

    Too many dumb fucks on this page.. they actually think they know who they are voting for.. just like with Obama.. he is not who you guys are making him out to be.. he probably sucks big republican dick just like Bush.. all of them equally suck.. so it doesn't matter what group they are.. done with this page.. every time someone mentions anything political, all the dumb fuck pigeons come out to squawk some stupid ass shit.. squawkidy squawkidy squawkidy!!!!! haha much later losers xD



  30. 30

    and here i thought, since amazon is selling her new cd for 4.99 since christmas and itunes began selling it for 6.99 a couple of days ago, this was the result. her ron paul support is just a knee jerk reaction of not having a real clue…



  31. 31

    Re: Bloody Jenny – btw, why don't you just kill yourself?



  32. 32

    Re: Alexima – BTW why don't you go chock on a dick since you suck at come-backs? like oow ouch go kill yourself.. really omg who hasn't heard that before.. wow.. i'm really going to do it because some pointless human somewhere in the world said so.. why don't you come up with something better idiot? That is why you are being owned by tea baggers.. lol what a loser i can't even deal.. sorry i got to leave this page and never come back and read your stupid shit because i know it will be the same lame shit yawn.. next post xD please reply to me if you are a dumbass

  33. amisa says – reply to this


    33

    ummmm i totally bought stronger ONLY beacause she was brave enough to come out and support ron paul!! RP 2012 baby!!!!



  34. 34

    Re: NotSoGay – Ugh… you obviously drank the kool-aid…



  35. 35

    Re: Bloody Jenny – lol! why don't you just kill yourself so you don't have to deal with monsters like me?



  36. 36

    Good PR move? Come on. It took guts not to tow the show biz political line. She spoke her mind and initially all the headlines were gleeful as to how she was punished for it by losing tweet fans. Now theyre backtracking because it upped her sales. Or at least brought attention to her new album being out. Regardless, initial attempts by the press to hurt her over her comment failed. That is a good thing. She has just as much a right to express her feelings about a candidate.



  37. 37

    Ron Paul is the only candidate who supports gay rights, not even Obama has done that. Way to go girl!



  38. 38

    Ron Paul for 2012, he is the best the Republicans have to offer and we need someone other than Obama who has pretty much proven he cannot lead in most instances.

    I like his Liberterian platform.



  39. 39

    so…what is a 200% increase of ZILCH??



  40. 40

    Good for that lesbian. She can support any assholes she wants. It's a free world.



  41. 41

    Re: Bloody Jenny – Please educate yourself. You sound like a confused uneducated fourteen year old with daddy issues. If you think Ron Paul is like Bush or Obama in any way shape or form means your not only uninformed but just being silly. Why is he the only one completely ignored by the media for the past five years? Its because hes different and a true Republican and constitutionalist and is fighting for the rights and freedoms of everyone! Including the uneducated like you and all people from different backgrounds, races, and cultures. Do research, get involved, and open your eyes. Ron Paul is the answer to the detrimental mess our country has gotten into.



  42. 42

    If indeed it had a thing to to with Ron Paul, it just goes to show that the majority of people in this country\world DO NOT think or FEEL as you and your MINORITY do. If it came down to warfare in the streets, and it just might in 10-20 years, you and yours will be the first to die.



  43. 43

    agreed she is a stupid fat cow …



  44. 44

    Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate (including Obama) who believs all individuals should have the same rights and that the federal government has no place in our bodies or hearts. End the wars. End the fed. End the war on drugs. RON PAUL 2012!!!



  45. 45

    Ron Paul 2012!!!!!!!!!! I have not bought her album i don't find her music all that great but i commend her on speaking her mind on who she believes and we the people think should win the election. I am all Ron Paul 2012.. I was never a supporter of Barrack HUSSEIN Obama. I really hope he does not win. i did not like him during election and even worse now. He is just as dumb as the other candidates except Ron Paul. Obama is all talk that is it. Ron Paul is a true believer in the people and the 99% who struggle daily.. Obama is all about money and who can give him more money which is why the Feds and financial institutions are all about Obama.

    How can any young person be a Republican????? It's for the old and creepy.

  47. @v@ says – reply to this


    47

    Holy crap, her album has risen on Amazon.com to number 1 in three categories, and number 2 in another. It's sales are up 1350% in 'movers and shakers.' The Ron Paul supporters are calling it the 'Kelly Clarkson Musicbomb' on the Daily Paul to counter the undemocratic heat she's taken simply for liking a certain candidate. Those are HUGE numbers. A couple of other musicians have voiced their support now.

    Go KC!



  49. 49

    i'm actually hearing a lot of the smart democrats are leaning towards this guy.



  50. 50

    I've never cared for a second about any "American idol contestant" Until now. Now I think shes a girl with a brain. Well done Kelly Clarkson!! Stand up and be proud. The only real change, and they do not want you to know about him.!!! RON PAUL 2012 !!!



  51. 51

    Dear Kelly,Obama thanks you from the bottom of his heart.Don't forget about that independent option should you not quite get there Dr.Paul.



  52. 52

    I think her album is just great…I can't imagine Ron's base of the MALE, PALE and STALE rushing out to buy her music! :)



  53. 53

    Re: Low – You would be surprised. If more people stopped worrying about being a democrat, a republican or libertarian and looked at the detrimental mess our country is in we would be much better off. As I have said I feel like thousand times on this thread EDUCATE YOURSELF! Our military is in over 150 countries around the world, we are trillions in dept, millions unemployed! We need to stop aiding everyone else and take care or our own countries welfare until we can actually have a good economy again. Im 22 years old and I consider that young, but the young the old the fat the thin, the black, white, and Hispanic, the poor the rich are all supporters of Ron Paul. Ron Paul 2012!



  54. 54

    Re: JulieAndrewsWorshiper – not really, this incident has had more publicity than her album.
    Shows how many idiots there are in the world.



  55. 55

    She lost a fan here. I will also take her music out of my library.. Ron is a bigot and a waste of space



  56. 56

    Re: thomas2leroy – Im sorry but you are the bigot if you stop being a fan of Kelly Clarkson because of who she wants to vote for. You are a sad individual who doesn't understand a thing.



  57. 57

    Re: Baranged – It's better for people to buy her album for endorsing Ron Paul as opposed to someone supporting that idiot that's in the white house now…



  58. 58

    Re: Henwii – it's totally because of Ron Paul Read the comments on Amazon



  59. 59

    Ron Paul is the only candidate that thinks the government should be out of marriage. He's the only candidate that supports gay marriage even obama doesn't support gay marriage. YouTube Ron Paul Gay marriage for Christ sake!!!



  60. 60

    Amazon sells her CD for $4.99 and Itunes for $6.99 why???? It even lower than the price of Bieber's CD??? She just released her album not that long time ago? Anyway, 200% increased after Ron Poll endorsement? If at least Ron Paul's fans bought her CDs, it was a smart move from Kelly's part. Maybe her CDs will reach platinum soon. I wonder is Ron Paul healthy enough to go through the tough Campaign? He looks so pale and old though!!!



  61. 61

    Re: thomas2leroy – Hey bro how bout instead of pointing fingers and calling people names. do some actual reading and read about Ron Paul and what he stands for. As you i don't own any kelly clarkson music. i just never cared for her and her music. i honestly think she sucks and will not spend a dime on her music. but i do believe in her beliefs. Ron Paul is the strongest candidate that believes government should stay out of our independent lives and supports the 99 %. . and all this coming from a HOMO which i am glad to say i am , who from day one did not support Mr. HUSSEIN OBAMA. Obama is the bigot against the american people !!



  62. 62

    Re: SClub7 – Well considering Ron Paul isn't really either….he's a libertarian, which is usually more aligned with Republicans, but Democratic on some issues.



  63. 63

    I very much doubt her album sales rose so quickly because of who she supports politcally, its far more likely the fact the album is currently on sale (and is fairly new) that accounts for the extra sales. I have no comment to make on Ron Paul, I'm not American and don't know enough about the guy, unlike some on here I don't spout crap when I don't know what I'm talking about ;o)



  64. 64

    Re: Henwii – Exactly but does Perez even fact check or does he just try to make up a story to fill space. She will realize soon that not only she has lost cd sales but she has lost concert tickets. There is no way on earth I'd pay good money to go to one of her concerts now.



  65. 65

    Re: Bloody Jenny – He's also very intellectual. He knows how to really bring his point in. If the Republicans are such true Americans I wonder why every Republican governor is trying to suppress the vote of college students and senior citizens by passing laws making it more difficult for them to vote in addition to making it more difficult for the poor to vote. That sounds real American doesn't it? Not one Democrat governor has ever suggested such a law or any to suppress unions either. Cause Unions don't protect REAL AMERICANS do they? Ignorance is scary really scary and the majority of the time it's being spouted out of the mouths of Republicans.

    Re: SClub7 – Comment Stupid

    Re: cocteauboy – Still not reaching as low as Ga Ga on Amazon for .99 cents just so she could debut at #1 but it's up there…

    Re: Baranged
    and it's also lame for people to bash her for comment on Ron Paul
