Ahhh, my little Demi-goddess Lovato released another hit album, with Here We Go Again selling 108K copies and topping the Billboard charts. (Michael Jackson’s Number Ones sold more copies, but it’s ineligible for the charts because it’s an older album.)
Meanwhile, Jordin Sparks’ Battlefield sold a dismal 48,000 copies. Has anyone heard the single off that album? It’s terrible. If that’s what they released as the first single, I can’t even imagine the crap that’s on the rest of that album. No sweat off my back. I’m still angry with her for implying that pre-marital sex is slutty at the VMAs last year. You know what, Jordin? Having a flop of a sophomore album is slutty, too.
Here’s what it all comes down to: American Idol is brilliant at creating a big star of the moment, but when it comes to developing, nurturing and promoting talent in the long run, nobody can compete with Disney.
