Taylor Swift may top the music charts, but newsstand sales are a whole other story!
In 2012 the I Knew Your Were Trouble singer had FOUR of the worst selling magazine covers! Ouch!
Swifty started out the year by covering Vogue's February issue, which sold a paltry 329,371 copies. That's just a little over half of the mag's best-selling issue of 2012, which sold 602,000 copies.
Come November, Taylor did a little bit better with her Glamour cover, selling 443,000 copies of the November issue. Of course that number was no match for the year's top seller: Lauren Conrad's May issue.
T-Swizzle's Harper’s Bazaar issue also saw lackluster sales with only 138,412 copies flying off the shelves. But compared to Gwen Stefani's September issue, which only sold 166,365 copies, what's 30,000 magazines?
Taylor's final flop came during her birthday month of December. The 23 year old graced the cover of Cosmo, which ultimately became the mag's worst-selling issue of the year with just over 1 million copies sold.
So why is everyone being so hard on little Swifty? Glamour’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive said:
"There may have been a little hiccup for her right around the 1-D relationship. But it’s nothing a pro can’t come back from. I’d put money on her for the long run."
Yes! It's all Harry Styles' fault! Ha! We kid, we kid.
But really, who cares if you can't sell magazines? When Taylor's music stops selling, that's when she should worry!
