...also turns out to be her lowest debute week for an album released ever. I'm sure she wasn't expecting that. I mean, who would with the excitement surrounding her Las Vegas show?! But, Britney Jean sold only 107,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielson SoundScan.
What does this mean for Britney? Well, I'm sure nothing negative...she is still making some serious bank for her Vegas show. So, good job, Brit Brit.
...no...this can't be. Mtv, did you REALLY decide this?! The year of Macklemore, the year of the comebacks for Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Fall Out Boy...the year of alternative crossovers: Imagine Dragons, Muse, Of Monsters and Men...the year that Katy Perry and Lady Gaga went head to head with new releases...and you had the 'male antamony' enough to give Miley Cyrus the title?!
Don't get my wrong, she had an awesome year, I guess. If you consider getting the word "twerk" into the dictionary and sticking your tongue out the most out of anyone in the world (dogs included.)
Personally, the only thing she's done 'well' is get talked about - mostly negative. So, what's the big deal?
There are much more credible, talented artists that had major accomplishments this year that deserve to be recognized (no, not Taylor Swift.) Justin Timberlake comes back after a 6 year hiatus and breaks all sorts of records, sells out stadiums left and right, has hit after hit after hit from 2 new studio albums and then snags 7 Grammy nominations. Macklemore blasts on the scene as a newcomer and started out the year looking like a one-hit wonder to be with "Thrift Shop" and took over the rap world, also having hit after hit and a sold out world tour, oh and also snagging 7 Grammy nominations. Jay Z dropped the dash from his name, released an album that sold hundreds of thousands in a week, also embarked on a ridiculously successful tour and has 9 Grammy nominations. I could go on, but I think it's clear that Mtv is smoking the same stuff Miley is.
...when Lady Gaga becomes a Christmas Tree.
Well, it didn't take long for Kelly Clarkson to start feeling the pain of pregnancy! Maybe she should've listened to Adele after all ("don't have kids!")
Nah, it's just a little morning sickness. Ok, a lot of morning sickness. In fact, Kelly has said she's getting sick about 12 times a day right now...yummy. Hope you weren't eating and reading. To top it off, her hair is even falling out. Crazy things do happen when you're pregnant. Just wait for the cravings to start up. Pretty soon she'll be eating pickles with peanut butter like it's nobodies business!
She's quoted telling Ellen while promoting her new Christmas cd, "That's the thing too, you're not attractive when you're pregnant. Like everybody tells you you glow and you're hair is pretty and you're nails are pretty. That is total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out like it's not all lush and beautiful and I have no glow. Unless it's like something left over from a bad throw up. It's horrible."
But, lets be serious...while all of that ain't no walk in the park...I'm sure she didn't mind "doin' it like rabbits" as she so kindly put it earlier this fall.
X-Factor, American Idol, etc...these shows were originally created to find the next "big thing." They pride themselves on finding "undiscovered talent" --- but, wait! Jeff Gut and Ellona Santiago had previously auditioned for X-Factor only to be cut; Alex and Sierra auditioned for American Idol and didn't make it; Carlito (who once went by: Carlos Emmanuel Olivero) auditioned and WON his way into the revamp of boy band "Menudo" back on Mtv in 2007; Even Lillie McCloud had a recording deal previously...so, where's the actual undiscovered talent? Or are they truly undiscovered because none of us actually noticed them the first go around? Eh, whatever the case, the 6 left are cut to 4 tonight at FOX...will your favorite stick around? That depends...did you vote?
Nope, this is NOT easy to do...and somehow every year this dude kills it! Hear some of the most popular songs of 2013 all mashed up into one song of awesomeness!
