With the likes of Adele and Taylor Swift serving as today‘s mega sellers, it’s easy to forget sales feats scored by ‘Luv The Hurt Away’ singer Britney Spears.
Welcoming first week sales of 1,319,193 units with 200o’s ‘Oops!…I Did It Again’, Spears- even today- boasts sales that even the likes of Lady GaGa and Rihanna are unlikely to ever see.
Now, after taking Will.i.am’s ‘Scream & Shout’ to the top of iTunes, she has landed a record that makes her run as a global icon all the more mind blowing.
Topping the list for the ‘Most Searched Celebrity‘ in the last twelve, The Huffington Post reports that this feat makes her the ‘Most Searched Celebrity’ since the internet’s inception.
“Turns out, one person has clearly dominated the top-searched lists for the past decade or so: Britney Spears. She’s topped the lists for a whopping seven of the 12 years. That makes her the most-searched celebrity since basically the inception of the internet (or something *head-flip*).”
Beating the attention seeking Kim Kardashian to the top spot, the Pop legend also surpassed searches made for Michael Jackson, Princess Diana and Brit Pop sensations One Direction.
This record comes after she was crowned ‘The Next Queen Of Pop’ by That Grape Juice.Net readers, securing the top spot with 81,762 votes cast in her favor.
Three cheers for Brand Spears!
