taylor swift covers flop in newsstand sales 2(2)

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!

    Those are all women's magazines - Taylor's fan base is much younger.

    She is so fcking boring and no personality. Straight ass hat bimbo with no voice !!!! :(

  3. 2 Faces says – reply to this


    She is a slut ??? :D

    Grown women like myself don't want to read about someone still acting like a stupid adolescent.

    She is a disgrace to the country music industry. Hail Carrie Underwood.

    So are you spear-heading or just stoking the T-Swizzle takedown. Bring 'em up. Rip 'em down. Jada Pinkett-Smith made a very interesting point in her recent address on youth & fame. It is really fair game? Yeah, she's rich and famous, but she's 22 and living in a fish bowl, and so many that came before and lived similarly are now dead. Yeah, if I were the Beibs, I'd high-tail it to Amsterdam too. I was under the impression, Mario, that the PerezHilton brand was attempting to transcend. I'll attest to your headway, but it's not enough. This particular report is not outright bullying, but considering the Swifty hate that's "trending" right now, it has the same stink.

    On a another note, please find a more appropriate word other than 'slam' to head your reports. You've cheapened it with over-use and misuse. Bang your drum carefully.

    Looks like a box cover to a porno, does she do porn?

    If Taylor Swift keeps having 6 terrible break up songs in the Billboard… she has to write a song called "No One Fault But Me"

  9. Again says – reply to this


    Cindi, who are you kidding, this is the second year that Taylor Swift's magazine cover recieved the lowest sales. She had the lowest sales in 2010 as well. So it is not 1-D. I agree with rosebud99, women don't want to read about her. It is what it is.

  10. thebigboot says – reply to this


    You mean "Swifty" isn't a super special snowflake?

  11. K Bye says – reply to this


    ……stop writing stupid songs about your ex boyfriends. You are the problem, Ms Swift !!!! :(

  12. There You Go ! says – reply to this


    Grown up women do no want to read about a stupid juvenile fake record mogul puppet who had series of monthly fake romance just to get a publicity.

    Re: Monster

    Gaga she is a flake. Gaga is using Born This Way Foundation to gather fans. Nothing to do with bullying

    Sit down, MORONSTERS. The end is near !

    Models need to be on covers of these magazines…she belongs on teeny bopper music covers
    She doesn't fit the fan base as well..what mother is going to buy one of those magazines for an 11 year old???

  15. Shannon says – reply to this


    Even when she fails you try and act like it is not her fault. And you tried to throw shade at Lauren Conrad who is only 4 years older and a whole hell of a lot wiser than Taylor. Done reading celeb gossip on your site.

    Why don't you mention that rihanna is the 2nd worst selling? Oh can't say something bad about one of your paying customers.

  19. Taylor says – reply to this


    I'm ready to suck boys again then leave…here comes a new single !!! :)

  20. RiRi says – reply to this


    Beyonce didn't sell a lot too…. :(

  21. Beyonce Fan says – reply to this


    She is a Republican with no morals…that's why.

  22. The Real Taylor says – reply to this


    BJ is my lifestyle !

  23. Yawn Girl says – reply to this


    Carrie Underwood is much better.

  24. TruthSpeaker says – reply to this


    Enough responses about the mag sales so all i will add is: she's a hoe.

  25. danielle says – reply to this


    15 years olds don´t buy Harper's Bazaar or Vogue… grown ups don't listen to Swift… 2+2…

    Re: rosebud99 – She is 23! And she lies.

  27. Immature says – reply to this


    Noticed how you didnt mention the best selling artist in the cover of vogue. It was Gaga, so you didnt mention her. Youre site is getting so lame, just like you.

  28. 28

    Despite her beauty, creativity and originality (things I value!) - I think she's repulsive - as in driving away.

  29. 29

    I think she's way over exposed. And lately, every story about her is related to her many short-term relationships. Those stories have been run into the ground, so she's become tiresome on that front as well. I just saw a picture of her visiting a 10 year old cancer patient. A good deed? Sure. Would have been a better deed if she hadn't used the visit for a phot-op.

  30. 30

    I don't think it has anything to do with Harry. She's over saturated at this point. Every magazine cover has her and her face is everywhere. We know about her boyfriends, her love songs, so most of us would rather buy something else.

    Re: rosebud99 – Thats a bullshit excuse and you know.

  32. dude says – reply to this


    If you morons actualy read thr report you would find out that even though she was not the best seller her magazine covers sold above the 1year average for every magazine she was on. But facts dont matter any more. Above average sales dont make for a headlines SHE CAN'T SELL MAGAZINES MAKS HEADLINES.

    Re: knitting nut – Yeah, especially Cosmo which has stories like "Ten Best Ways to Have a Dual Orgasm" - yeah an eleven year old needs that. Shoot I do not buy it.

  34. Bravo bravissimo says – reply to this


    Taylor's magazines are selling just fine, thank you! You might think of a retraction, Perez. Check out E!Online. Or better yet, GossipCop, they track down all these gossipy snarky stories and figure out the truth. Truth is, sloppy interpretation of the original WWD numbers led to dumb stories. Swift sold great across the board. The only dip was Glamor–the cover was about her and Conor, and they'd split. No, GaGa and Adele didn't do better. They were just on the Spring and Fall issues, which always sell more! Just read GossipCop then write a new story!!! Taylor will be on magazine covers for a long time!!

    I wanted to buy it, but I didn't. Want to know why? BECAUSE WHO BUYS MAGAZINES NOWADAYS?!
