As was expected, Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album Roman Reloaded debuted at numero uno on the Billboard 200 this week, selling 253,000 copies.
While this is a chunk less than what Pink Friday brought in last year, we believe it’s due - in part - to the fact that downloading music fo' free is only increasing in popularity and her key demographic is all savvy with them computers.
We LOVE Roman Reloaded, especially the base-beatin' Whip It and the popalicious Va Va Voom!!
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
