The Fame (Monster) sales breakdown for all the non-believers
2008 - ~0.25M (didn't chart)
2009 - 5.9M
2010 - 5.9M
2009/2010 - 2M sold by 'Monster' EP (released separately in US and Japan, sold ~1.6M in the US to date, you can see it charted separately HERE)
2011 - 1.5M + 0.25M (since it left the chart before the year ended but kept selling)
2012 - 0.2M
And considering MT doesn't count some charts, it might have sold even a bit more, but I DIDN'T want to inflate.
Coming for that 500m tour gross mark by the end of the BTWB

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT:KE$HA A typical Ke$ha concert includes 15 songs, copious amounts of on-stage drinking, and at least one giant penis costume. As Trent Wolbe put it:"that night she was just Kesha... the lowest form of pop expression”. All we’re saying is, even if you’re going to shill for a corporate party (c.f. Jay-Z at SXSW, Kanye West at Samsung's Galaxy Note II launch), go big or go home.
With the average per show of her first arena headlining tour being over 1.1 million and that of 2nd one projected to be 2-3 million.For those who'll try by coming up w/ 'Ooh she had 543189 dates'.
NO STAN GIBBERISH,ONLY THE TRUTH.
