Britney Bombs: ‘Britney Jean’ Becomes Spears’ Lowest Selling Debut

Published: Tuesday 10th Dec 2013 by Sam

Some acts don’t require smash singles to sell an album. Britney Spears, however, isn’t one of them.

Prior to its release this week, the star’s latest effort ‘Britney Jean’ had failed to generate hits with lead singles ‘Work B*tch’ and ‘Perfume’. Yet, despite this, industry analysts and fans alike seemed agree that the LP would (at least) sell on the strength of the singer’s name. Something it’s arguably gone on to do, but with numbers that register as the lowest debut figures of Spears’ illustrious career.

Details after the jump…

According to Hits Daily Double, the troubled set – which was executively produced by will.i.am – will debut at #5 on the Billboard 200 tomorrow with sales of…

108, 461

Not only is the figure a drastic drop from the 115k-125k initially predicted, it marks the smallest number of units sold first week of any of the 32-year-old’s previous releases on home soil. Indeed her record reads…

* ‘…Baby One More Time’ debuted at #1 with 121,000 units sold. 

 * ‘Oops!…I Did It Again’ debuted at #1 with 1.3 million units sold.

* ‘Britney’ debuted at #1 with 745,000 units sold.

* ‘In the Zone’ debuted at #1 with 609,000 units sold. 

* ‘Blackout’ debuted at #2 with 290,000 units sold. 

* ‘Circus’ debuted at #1 with 505,000 copies sold.

* ‘Femme Fatale’ debuted at #1 with 276,000 copies sold. 

 ***********
The project, which opened at #34 in the UK, has been treated like a not-so-elaborate vehicle to push Spears Las Vegas agenda, so the numbers aren’t that surprising. Sad, is more the word we’d use.
Before digressing, though, it’s important to point out that Spears is contractually unable to perform anywhere other than at her Las Vegas show ‘Piece of Me’ for the next two years – which (partially) explains the LP’s lack of live promotion.
However, this doesn’t explain the album’s lack of push prior to this month nor the lack of performances outside of the US (the Vegas contract restrictions are limited to America). Surely if the world is supposed to come to see Britney in one spot, there should have been some kind of incentive by way of a performance somewhere…anywhere?
We may be surprised at the fact people pay money to watch someone dance like they have cement in their boots, but the fact remains…they do…pay. So why avoid?
Then again, there’s little point wallowing in the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s. The album itself is the absolute pits. In retrospect we’re surprised it even sold what it has.
Like Britney, watching how this has all played out has somewhat warmed us to the idea of her retirement. However, for the sake of her legacy, we’re hoping for at least one more well-handled project – for no other reason than being able to go out on a relative high and not this dire dud.

    So sad literally in tears its heart breaking to see.

  2. body ache (Britney stan) December 10, 2013

    But it is decent for having done zero live performances.

  3. brenda jenkins December 10, 2013

    CIARA bombed too but that hasnt stopped yall from kisiing her manly feet tho……

  4. LastDOn December 10, 2013

    poor sales for sum1 of her caliber but not bad in this music climate I’m NOT a fans of hers but hopefully her sales will pick up from here on out.. No I’m not buying the album 2 increase her sales I don’t neither 1 of her singles but i wish her the best!!

  5. body ache (Britney stan) December 10, 2013

    The sales will definitely increase with Planet Hollywood.

  6. yoSMOKE December 10, 2013

    Thats what that albums deserves.. Will.I.Am ruined Britney dope sound ! The album sounds unfinished and missing core elements to make the material shine. Britney doesn’t even sound like herself & dont try to mask it as GROWTH because she had better vocals earlier in her career. She should just still to the Vegas show and not release anymore albums .. She has nothing else to prove ! Her legacy is already stapled.

  7. TRUTH December 10, 2013

    Because she can’t sing live. At least Vegas will give her good autotune and effects to hide that

  8. LastDOn December 10, 2013

    everybody is gonna come on here n make up excuse 4 britney’s sales but if this Gaga or Beyonce the only word they would’ve for the is FLOP!!

  9. LastDOn December 10, 2013

    *like

  10. body ache (Britney stan) December 10, 2013

    Im pissed at her team for letting Will.i.am produce majority of this album, smh he makin her a flop like his wack ass.

  11. sister sister December 10, 2013

    let me make a list of excuses so i can use as future reference. locked on tgj.

    also let me take note of all double standards. you. i am watching you

  12. Gilberto December 10, 2013

    Britonic Lotusean.

  13. BITCHPLEASEEEEE December 10, 2013

    I DON’T THINK BRITNEY CARE FOR ALBUM SALES NOW. I MEAN SHE BEEN THERE THAT……………..

  14. j December 10, 2013

    Well. Not surprising. The album sounds dated, the singles were trash and she hasn’t promoted it in the slightest.

    For someone who enjoyed FF and Blackout and how progressive they were, I’m disappointed in BJ.

  15. LastDOn December 10, 2013

    it’s a gud thing she released “perfume” video 2day cux it’s gonna help her out a lot in her second week. But in all honesty she will go GOLD which is still GOOD

  16. Rosie December 10, 2013

    Dead at her fans doing the little to no promo excuse when they were bragging about her having to do little to no promo during the Femme FATale era.
    And the Britney Bottoms stay coming for Beyoncé for being a flop/has-been. S****** Jean won’t sell 500K worldwide.

  17. idgi December 10, 2013

    Serving some Bionic realness. Not making excuses but she kinda hardly promoted this one, but then again she is Britney Spears but whatever. I hope these stans aren’t going to fall back on this “its for the die hard fans” because that’s not a valid reason. But hey she’s getting extra $$$ as she’s on these writers credits. Its not a great album, I like perfume and alien and 2 others, I’m not surprised it didn’t do well.

  18. LastDOn December 10, 2013

    Damn none of the Big name Pop Females singers opened up with 300k 1st week this year.. Can women still sell albums anymore or they’re just singles artist now!! I think this is something record company should look in2!!

  19. Caramelboi December 10, 2013

    I’m not a fan of Britney,but I do like some of her songs. She did little to no promo for this album and by her selling over a 100k copies is good for just selling on her name alone. Those sells will go up eventually.

  20. Molly December 10, 2013

    Im pretty sure Britney could careless, these are still decent numbers especially for someone who didn’t promote. Im pretty sure she only put out a new album so she could have new material to perform in Vegas.

  21. Mark111 December 10, 2013

    The only album she kinda promoted was Circus. I guess her fans got tried of waiting for the Old Britney to come back and gave up. But on the real, who’s her competition? XTINA been dead, Jessica who? Mandy what?

    Fans need to kill that “well she didn’t do any shows, so those are good numbers” bull. Stans from all fan bases has been killing themselves all year. Music really has changed (from a business standpoint. )

  22. Hivy December 10, 2013

    BUT as TGJ said the Vegas is limited to US only so she should have been Everywhere else promoting her album. She had the chance to promote but oh well.

  23. Abel December 10, 2013

    I agree about Will ruining this project.. She didn’t listen to the fans when we urged for Danja and Max Martin.

  24. Jay Jay December 10, 2013

    Honestly if her team are smart they should release Tik Tik boom as the next single. That single will slay all radio formats and could possibly generate some sort of buzz for the project.

    But I need an awesome video and a heavy promo campaign for TTB

  25. Gilberto December 10, 2013

    I think it’ll be out of the top 50 next week. LOOOOOOOOOOL.

  26. Molly December 10, 2013

    Yes tik tik boom needs to be the next single or til its gone it will save this project

  27. Beyonce Is Monumental December 10, 2013

    Her record speaks for itself. She’s a staple in pop culture. I’m not the biggest fan but even w/o album sales her name will continue to ring bells for years to come.. #werkbrit #whenwillyourfave

  28. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 10, 2013

    Ooh.. yeah, I think her team needs to let “Perfume” be the official goodbye single from Britney and just end this era. I just don’t see anything reviving this. Releasing another single won’t help either. People just aren’t interested anymore..

  29. Los December 10, 2013

    They’ll try to sweep this under a rug and make all sorts of excuses for her having this tragic outcome, but can you imagine the flogging Beyonce would get if she dare debuted this low?

  30. UbettaWERK December 10, 2013

    Maybe she should change her slogan from “It’s Britney b****, to It’s over b****.” 🙁

  31. LOL December 10, 2013

    LMAO @ THE EXCUSES.

    SHE WOULDA FLOPPED NO MATTER WHO PRODUCED IT LMAO

  32. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 10, 2013

    I truly Think She Has No Interest in Music anymore and Did This Album Just To End Being a Prisoner To Her Contract Maybe, she give Me this ” i don’t even Wanna be Here” Feel This Era.

    like She wanna Have a Family and a life outside the Music Biz, she give me this Feel, am I the Only one? 😯

    She Just Don’t Care, And @TGJ, ciara’s Hype Website,Being so Harsh on her makes Them come off as “Hypocrites” to me, Which is not Shocking anymore TBH. 😕

  33. Navy Nick December 10, 2013

    I got my copy, I like the album, BUT I gotta say BRITNEY did not do any PROMO, @ all…..she has some good hits on this cd too., ahhhh poor baby-SHE STILL PAID HELL! life goes on,

  34. Navy Nick December 10, 2013

    u know what, u maybe right, that makes sense actually! I don’t blame her tho, hell….

  35. MARIAH >> your flop fave December 10, 2013

    RIP TO your flop career FLOPney

  37. Faye December 10, 2013

    I like Britney and think she’s a nice person, but isn’t it funny how when she hasn’t sold well everyone is making excuses? I remember when Christina Aguilera didn’t sell well with one of her albums and she got bashed and ripped to pieces on a lot of websites including this one. Christina’s album sold more this latest album of Britney. Again I don’t have a problem with Britney but I just think it’s double standard

  38. MARIAH >> your flop fave December 10, 2013

    FLOPney stans have NO right to drag Xtina anymore for Bionic!!

    The fact that BIONIC > FLOPney Jean

    OOOoppp

    Rest in peace to your career girl Flopney Jean

  39. kiiiiiii December 10, 2013

    H** go worry about Pigriah Scarey, The art of flopping is not even charting on itunes top 300. Let’s wait F******’s new album and see how it does. I am sure she will sell less than Britney, more like Ciara 57k.

  40. NAVY COMMANDER December 10, 2013

    Considering the fact that she had no promo and sold less than half of someone who had 35m promo budget. I’d say this is pretty good. At least she isn’t pulling Ciara numbers

  41. MARIAH >> your flop fave December 10, 2013

  42. SerferTJ December 10, 2013

    It’s still a flop tho…

  43. dark horse December 10, 2013

    Gaga and Beyonce without tons of promo wouldnt even 60k, so this is decent for Slayney.

  44. Music December 10, 2013

    She has been doing everything for her albums to flop since 2007, now she has succeded, this is her way to be free, she is trying to say to her record label, í’m a flop, don’t waste your time with me, i’m not a money maker machine anymore, hoping that maybe this time, they let her go, she wants to experience a normal life, we can’t blame her for that, it’s not that she don’t have talent, you don’t need talent to stay in the music scene, all you need is passion and ambition and she don’t have that anymore, sadly, because in my eyes, she is Pop Royalty but if she is gonna be happy then it must be this way, i just want to hug her and tell her, how much she is loved and that no matter what, we always gonna be here for her if she ever wants to be again the girl who once set the world on fire.

  45. dark horse December 10, 2013

    Still did better then Lotus h**.

  46. SerferTJ December 10, 2013

    lol, with Britney’s talentless self, any performance she did would have probably lowered her sales. 😛

  47. Kyle December 10, 2013

    For Britney’s standards this is low but with no promo and little public interest, doing six figures in first week sales in todays age is pretty commendable. In terms of her music career, you can just tell Britney is so over it. She’s not passionate about her craft, she’s just doing this s*** to fulfill a contract. It’s kinda sad. Watching her in interviews is so damn awkward it makes me cringe!

  48. Anne December 10, 2013

    There’s no if, ands, or buts about it, these sales are poor. Better luck next time Brit.

  49. Todd December 10, 2013

    Yall are too much! Im not a Britney fan, but whats the big deal – its just numbers. Enjoy her music and look after your business. Leave numbers to her menagment ! Plus, I’m sure that after all the years of hard work people deserve to be respected for what they did along with what they’re doing now. You cant stay on the top forever. Let the b**** breathe

  50. applause December 10, 2013

    Wheres lovebird?? lol

  51. Music December 10, 2013

    That Mariah fan is disgusting, how can someone being so mean with a girl like Britney, and then when someone comes for Mariah, they are the victims, it’s the same thing everywhere you go with the lambs, the hate every Pop star from Madonna, Britney to Rihanna and Christina, they don’t hate Gaga though maybe because she is not team Madonna, the lambs worst nightmare since Mariah is always second to her.

  52. applause December 10, 2013

    LOVEBIRD WHERE ARE YOU??????????????????

  53. applause December 10, 2013

    Art of flopping will do 75k max

  54. Lovebird December 10, 2013

    Well it FLOPPED but I’m still proud of her for putting it out. She picked a release date and stuck by it, so proud of her.

    And these are ok numbers considering Celine Dion who can sing amazingly karaoke style in the studio (and lip syncs 99% of the time) opened with 77K, so I’m still proud of Britney.

  55. Tamar stan December 10, 2013

    Flop

  56. Lovebird December 10, 2013

    At the end of the day, even with this album FLOPPING, Britney still has an amazing record of over 90 million albums sold and TWO diamond albums, with the highest debut by a female artist of all time, something Beyonce will Never Ever not in a million years ever say.

    Congrats Britney, everyone has a flop album or two every now and then. If you will continue in the music business, I’m certain your next project will be much more refined because you’ll have a new perspective.

    Still love you lots.

  65. Diamond December 10, 2013

    Why the hell would Britney let Will I am produce anything for her?? Will can’t make his own album a hit. Britney needs her ex fiancé/manager back or else her career is over. Upside is Ciara still remains the lowest selling female artist of all time.

  66. FAF December 10, 2013

    @BRENDA u mad ?? Ciara not white and doesn’t sing pop U LOST Keep trying 😆 😆 anyway Idc bc britney doesn’t

    Y’ALL LOVE TO DRAG OTHER PPL DOWN WHEN YOUR “FAVES” DONT PERFORM…

  67. FAF December 10, 2013

    Anyway, she will go gold in sales & still get a platinum certification by next years end. WATCH. the RIAA loves her.

  68. Yolo December 10, 2013

    Its a flop. Save the excuses for the days. All the girls have great legacies for THEIR OWN reasons. But when they flop they flop. And Britney had her day shes pretty much dated now.

  69. FAF December 10, 2013

    The RIAA is about to make 500k platinum in the US.. literally every album this yr has done less than 290k

  70. UnviersalChic December 10, 2013

    The hypocrisy is real.That’s why I boarder line hate reading the comments on this site. You complain about Sam being bias when most of you do the same sh!t when it comes down to artist you don’t like.Britney is a pop queen there is no denying the achievements she has done throughout her career plus I like her and feel sympathy for her and hope she is able to just live her life like she wants to. However how the f#ck are y’all going to sit up here and throw every excuse you can at the wall and hope it sticks for Britney yet you’re the same people who bash “4” into the ground. The same album that debuted higher than almost every single major pop female album release this year. It had no hits it had no radio support and it still sold over 2 million WW. It still was critically acclaimed and it still won a Grammy all the while in her personal life her entire image was being questioned with her pregnancy one of the hugest scandals that would have BROKE most peoples careers but it didn’t hers but SOMEHOW according to all of you it was a flop. She is touring with the same album a tour that has already grossed over 100 million out grossing some of your faves. It’s ridiculous. For anybody to sale anything in this climate is amazing to me. It’s hard out here for these artist. There are so many factors playing into the music industry and the business aspect of it is like moving in a room of vultures. It takes true perseverance and plain destiny to do what Britney has done, what Beyonce has done, what Rihanna has done and all the other pop girls. All of their accomplishments are clap worthy.Beyonce does not have a diamond album…neither does Rihanna does that take away from her shine or naa cause we like her or are we going to make excuses for her? They may never sale like that but they will go down history so what the f#ck does it matter? Rant Over. Congratulations britney I’m proud of you and I hope you find peace of mind while dealing with that evil industry you’re in.

  71. Kendall December 10, 2013

    The album was a mess anyway. Boring dated and generic so I am not surprised.

  72. NAVY COMMANDER December 10, 2013

    I better not see one Ciara fan on here trying to drag Brit. Don’t even.

  73. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 10, 2013

    People who blame this on no promo, um did y’all forget Britney do NO promotion for Blackout and STILL SLAYED?? Why? because people actually cared back then and the music was HOT. Now, no one cares and the music sucks. #PointBlankPeriod

  74. cocobutta December 10, 2013

    Errrm. well….

    She should do more videos if she can’t perform live.

  75. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 10, 2013

    This will happen to another starlet as well..from a little over 300,000 to the land of flops!

  76. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 10, 2013

    First i’m not a britney fan but how can you compare beyonce lowest sales to britneys lowest sales? Brit has had more than 4 albums out, and out of the 4 this is the lowest let’s talk that s*** when beyonce drops her 5th studio album. Don’t get messy on this post now keep it cute lol come on now a diamond artist vs. a…yeah keep it cute!

  77. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 10, 2013

    Britney_>108k, ariana( whatever her name is) 100+k, Gaga2flopk, Katey->280+k,Miley->270+k, and beyonce 291k….These pop stars are pathetic to be honest

  78. KING B December 10, 2013

    Beyonce will never see this number as a first week sale and y’all be calling her a flop!!! I will give $200 for every TGJ reader if beyonce’s next album first week sale be that low!!

  79. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 10, 2013

  82. rih rox((U mad Bro?)) December 10, 2013

    beyFATce is scared to release because she can’t cheat with the new rules. She’s basically still struggling with 4lop trying to get it to the 3mill mark…while even touring for it…doing revel, world tour plus countless of other stage performances. Its been 3 years since flop came out. It came out the same year as TALK THAT TALK…and that has out sold it as well as unapologetic.

    That’s what you call a 4lop and she knows it that’s why she releasing, leaking teasing and testing the public with ‘Thrown garbage’ and the likes.

  83. Marcus December 10, 2013

    I like Britney, but I don’t like this album. It’s not good hell.

  84. J.E December 10, 2013

    Too sad to see the two of the greatest popstar ain’t selling anymore (Britney and Xtina). And the othe one is afraid to release her new album (Beyonce). I consider them the greatest popstar of their generation. Coz admit it or not, seeing them together in music atmosphere at the same at their prime is still the best era of this generation.

  85. Let’s Be Real December 10, 2013

    WOW. LoveBird is a hating b****. While Beyoncé may not have sold as many solo albums she will always know that with the 4 albums she has. That they debuted all higher than 100k sis :-/ also…the real winner is the net worth …which Beyoncé is worth about DOUBLE what Britney is…hmmm..anywho….this album is garbage. She’s aging horribly and its sad. Its like the blueprint Madonna left is to complicated for any of these pop b****** to truly conprehend….

  86. Haha December 10, 2013

    @Rih Rox this isn’t a Beyonce post honeybun.

  87. CzarM December 10, 2013

    Catastrophic.

    Gaga’s team should send Britney a box of candy to thank her for taking that tragic zoom lens off of her for a week.

  88. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 10, 2013

    @Let’s Be Real

    They have all not debuted with sales of 100K, for now (Beyonce is DELAYING the inevitable, even Columbia doesn’t if they’ll be an album out “at some point”).

    Secondly, Britney may have debuted with 100K, but she STILL HOLDS THE RECORD FOR THE HIGHEST DEBUT BY A FEMALE ARTIST. Beyonce better sit her ass down somewhere, Britney doesn’t address peasants.

  89. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 10, 2013

    “And the othe one is afraid to release her new album (Beyonce). I consider them the greatest popstar of their generation.”

    Beyonce is not one of the greatest popstars of their generation, she is a shameless thieving vulture who is a cancer to the industry.

    Alicia Keys is pop royalty of her generation, Beyonce is pop fodder.

  90. JER December 10, 2013

    But who’s actually surprised? Zero promotion = zero sales. It was basically all the gays coming out to buy it. So 100k isn’t bad all things considered. Some of yal faves have HUSTLED for less.

  91. Hor_acid December 11, 2013

    Honey, Xtina has a top 10 and still climbing song on the chart. Britney’s singles all failed to be in the top 20

  92. realmusicfan December 11, 2013

    Not her best sales,i admit..but i dont think she was worried about the sales….the album is great.yea she only sold 1o8,thats good,with no live performances,she sold that on her name alone…true,if she wouldve performed the singles,i know she wouldve sold more. but this site bashes her constantly…but hey,least shes getting promo somewhere,whether its good or bad.

  93. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare December 11, 2013

    The excuses are still rolling in I see.

    Look:

    1) The album is garbage.

    2) She DID promote the album. Just b/c she didn’t perform doesn’t mean that she didn’t promote the album. The last time I checked, interviews are promotion. Simply, no one cares.

    3) What is so great about an artist who records an album but refuses to do a performance featuring music from it? NOTHING. She’s a pop artist. She should perform. She doesn’t because she’s not good at it anymore.

    4)The passion has been missing from her music, concerts, performances, and albums for years. Why should she continue to be rewarded for this? It makes no sense. That “Britney sales on her name alone” foolishness has reached its limit. Move on.

    5) Why deflect attention away from Britney’s failure by concentrating on other artists. This is Britney’s failure. No one else’s. Not Bey’s, not Gaga’s. BRITNEY’s. & her past successes can do little to change the present disaster of “Britney Jean”

    6) Vegas is coming. Focus on that.

    Flop

    Oh. No wonder BEYONCE is afraid to release an album because she’s afraid her sales will end up like Britney and T***** Caca. I still love you Britney.

  96. LOL December 11, 2013

    LOL BEYONCE IS SHOPPING FOR HER PAYOLA/CLEAR CHANNEL DEAL RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK LMAO

  97. Bey Fan December 11, 2013

    Again… why in the hell would Beyonce be scared when NO ONE has put out anything great. Smh….. she scared to put out an album, but selling out tours world wide. cmon now.

    As far as Brit, she is and will always be the pop princess that had the world talkin. I wont take anything away from her accomplishments…. but her past greatness doesnt isnt gonna stop people from seeing present failure. In fact, mentioning her past just makes her present seem worse.

    Im sure these sells with pick tho. She has die hard fans

    LOL Dead at @TROLLBIRD coming for Celine Dion in this post!!!! LMAO How is she relevant to this post? I´ll explain it to you. You are basically a hatefull b**** with very poor taste in music who can´t stand real talent shining more than basic models.
    Now that you mention Celine anyway: her voice is out of this world (and she has performed tons of times live this year even if you refuse to see it), nothing about Britney is. Celine debuted at #1 in Canda last month with the biggest first week sales since 2008 in the country, Celine debuted at #2 in the UK (Britney at #30 or so), she topped itunes albums charts in 40 countries the first week of release, and Celine is doing so much better than Britney in Vegas in her 10th year there, while Britney is in her first year there LOL Are you liking the comparison? Celine has sold more albums (way more) than Britney, both in the USA and worldwide. Celine is respected, Britney best moments commercially are attached to a teen phenomenom that is long gone, and nobody cares about or respects. I could go on and on. And no Celine is not even the most talented lady I could think about.
    Look I wish Britney the best as a person, but this is what happens when you let a girl with not much talent become this successful. She´s been wanting to leave music since 2007, and it seems she´s finally getting it. Congrats, live your life girl! We´ll stick to the talent that never dies.

  99. WhatInThe?! December 11, 2013

    @FAF, that’s because nobody buys them anymore, and TGJ seems to be the only site that cares. Get over it!

  100. WhatInThe?! December 11, 2013

    @JOHNVIDAL, Lovebird is coming for Celine because he honestly don’t know what to post at this point. His jobless ass spent every single day of 2013 on TGJ putting other artist down calling them flops, but when Brittney flops it’s all good. TBH, he’s not really a Brittney fan anyways or else he wouldn’t have changed his name or avi the minute her album flopped in order to go undetected. He’s a Beyonce fan and has been exposed multiple times!

  101. MC!!!!! December 11, 2013

    if I was Britney I would care about album sales because I have 2 diamond albums under my belt before I turned 20. I do like a few songs from Britney Jean. I’m a lamb and I love Madonna Janet celine and whitney. Just because Mariah has beef doesn’t mean I do. She’s #1 to me but I do have my own mind unlike some people on here.

  102. Marcel December 11, 2013

    Britney will be fine… She hardly promoted this album and still sold 100K which is commendable for any artist, yeah even the pop icon…

    Work Bxtch? The h*** dont do research on this site swear to god.

  105. TruthTeller2013 December 11, 2013

    LOL @ the overflow of lame excuses from the Britbots. No amount of promo could have save this sinking ship. Save the time machine excuses, BrittleKnee is done. Not the Army bringing up Beyonce, when she’s busy with a hugely successful worldwide tour, that’s about to gross more than 200M+. Something BrittleKnee is NEVER doing!

  106. Ramone December 12, 2013

    Omg this made me fall off my couch laughing!! You are f****** hilarious

  107. JohnRennolds December 12, 2013

    Stans saying britney sales are good because she sold off her name BUT kanye & beyonce did the same think with their last albums an STILL sold over 300k so thats not an excuse!

  108. irene December 13, 2013

    when christina’s ‘bionic’ sold 123k u all were chatting “flop” at the top of your ratchet lungs.

  109. irene December 13, 2013

    is that why they certified ‘femme FATAL’ platinum before it even reached gold status?! way to go to get undeserved prestige!

  110. irene46 January 12, 2014

    did britney bring unexpected heat or was the heat brought by her tons of back up dancers that obscure her stiff do nothing dance moves?!
