    Seriously? You're really going to try to contribute this to her movie that BOMBED??? More people bought the album than saw the movie, so I highly doubt that is the case. You might not be aware of it, but that album was one of the ones Amazon had for 99 cents last week. That's the only reason it sold 76,555 copies. Th other albums that were 99 cents sold just as many copies, if not more.

    Umm. It had nothing to do with her movie. It had a little something to do with Amazon offering it for 99 cents last week. Of Monsters and Men, Lana Del Rey, and Elle Goulding also saw huge increases in sales after the same promotion.

    Sale or no sale, there's no doubt that "Teenage Dream" is one of most successful albums in pop music history. If it wasn't for piracy, sales would be a LOT higher. No doubt about it. Face it, Katy is a mega-star all over the world. Nobody can dispute that.

    Katy's movie ticket sales aren't as high as she hoped, but it's not going to be considered a "bomb" … just not a "smash hit" like "The Avengers". A movie is considerred a bomb if it gets subpar reviews and it doesn't come close to exceeding the costs of production. The movie earlier this year "John Carter" is considered a "colossal bomb" because it only made $73 million and it had a budget of a whopping $250 million. "Savages" only made a little more than Katy's movie has but it also cost $45 million. It has a ways to go to get out of "bomb" territory. Since it is a relatively inexpensive concert movie, Katy's movie has already broken even.

    The reviews for Katy's movie are really good on rottentomatoes.com. 79% of the Top Critics liked Katy's movie while 81% of the audience liked it. I bet "word of mouth" will pick up in the next few weeks and Katy's movie will be considered solidly profitable. I bet Katy's movie COULD have done better if it was released 3-4 weeks ago or later this year like during Labor Day. That wasn't Katy's fault. Blame Paramount for the ill conceived release date. Like I said, Katy's movie will be still be solidly profitable … especially when you factor in worldwide sales and DVD sales. It ain't no bomb. Act any movie executive.
