Dead I was here thinking it has sold 2.5 million in the US because the Gaga stans repeated that everywhere. Now I'm sure the album didn't sold 8 million WW like some of them claim.
What I don't understand is people bringing up tour receipts, don't they understand FADING is a different thing?
Artists like Bon Jovi, U2, Bruce Springsteen and old veteran acts have huge tours but do you hear one song of them playing on the radio? an album or single of them smashing on iTunes? They are huge touring forces but they're not on the spotlight and I'm sure Gaga fans want her idol to stay IN.
Gaga is a new artist and she just has a dedicated fanbase right now BUT if she wants to survive she needs to cater to general audiences and casual listeners to stay in the game, just my opinion.
