Whip that straightened blonde hair all over the place, Swifty!

And make yourself a virgin Shirley Temple, cuz you deserve it!!

Trumping 2002's The Eminem Show, Taylor Swift's Red has sold 1.208M copies in its first week!

And obviously it debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart too!

So not only does she get to bask in the sales, she's enjoying her THIRD chart-topper as well. Get it, gurrrl!!

Enamored with the love, Swifty tweet-tweeted:

Clearly the feeling's mutual, Taylor!

See! There really is a reason for broken hearts after all, LOL!!

Much congrats to your success, Swifty. You deserve it! That tour is sure to see big numbers too!

    yep she only has about 9 million more to go to match Adeles US sales. Good luck with that little girl. Its already dropped to #2 on US itunes. In fact its already dropped out of most countries top 10 charts.

    Re: PHWOARR – Why does she need to compete with Adele? Even if she only sells half as much as Adele, it will still be an exceptional accomplishment in today's music market. So few people are capable of those kinds of numbers nowadays that you can almost count them on your fingers. Taylor will be ranked among the best selling artists in the last few years either way, even without Adele's numbers.

    Re: PHWOARR – ugh.. Taylor is the only female to sell 4 million copies each of her albums in the US. Her first album "Taylor Swift" has sold 5.2 million copies in the US. Her 2nd album "Fearless" has sold 6.6 million copies in the US and is the second best selling album in the last decade only behind Adele's "21" and why do they have to compete? They are both great artists and deserve equal recognition. Her third album "Speak Now" has sold 4.2 million copies in the US as of October 2012. Both "Speak Now" and "Red" have sold over a million copies in its first week. She is the ONLY female to do that. And BTW RED is still number one on iTunes in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. ;)

    she is still LOCAL. Only huge in north america. She's only moderately popular elsewhere. She will never ever have Adeles GLOBAL appeal. Too girly and immature sounding to have a wide appeal. Men and women of all ages and colors love Adele. Only WHITE GIRLS like Taylor. Black people hate her!

    Re: PHWOARR – wow..well, please mind ur words= i think..i not white girls if that what u want to call her..and i definitely not from north america. i am from Asia and i proudly said she is famous here too.So she is NOT LOCAL. You like Adele, its up to u but please respect other peoples choice too..why on earth they need to compete?they are artist they have their own fans and they deliver music that their fan love.thats all. Adele is a good singer and Tay also a good singer..and BOTH of them HAVE FANS ALL AROUND THE WORLD. and their fans ARE COMING FROM ALL AGES AND RACES so just move on. if u hate her, no need to waste ur time to write hurtful words.respect other peples choice like u wanna peole to respect yours. :)
