That's GaGa lame excuse, but behind the scenes it's her label controlling.
It doesn't matter how many people were planning on buying The Fame for Christmas, there were already 1.6 million people who'd bought it and they shouldn't be forced to buy it again. It sets a really bad precedent for an artist when they gouge their fans.
These things we do to keep the flame burning
And write our fire in the sky
Another day to see the wheel turning
Another avenue to try

Its like your screaming, and noone can hear. You almost feel ashamed. That someone could be that important that without them you feel like nothing. Noone will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel HOPELESS. Like nothing can save you ...<3
If this is a Dream, Susan Boyle doesn’t want to wake up.
The unlikely Syco/Columbia phenom will top the HITS’ Album chart for a third consecutive week next Tuesday (12/15), with a total that could hit 600k, bringing her cumulative number close to 2 million.
That will certainly bring a smile to the faces of Rob Stringer, Steve Barnett and the notoriously hard-to-please Simon Cowell.
Based on one-day sales reports from those retailers not too busy selling flat-screen TVs, the top debut will come from Columbia’s Glee, Vol. 2, which is rapidly turning into its own cottage industry, with 120-130k, giving Barnett’s label the top two albums on next week’s chart.
Jive/JLG’s Chris Brown returns with Graffiti, which is on target for between 95-100k as the next highest newcomer, while Warner Bros. Birmingham, AL, rapper Gucci Mane is right behind him, with a projected total of 85-95k.
Virgin/EMI’s Thirty Seconds to Mars declare This Is War with a projected total between 65-75k, followed by Mailboat’s Jimmy Buffet (60-70k), Priority/EMI’s Snoop Dogg (55-65k), E1 Entertainment’s BG (40-50k), Blackground/Interscope’s Timbaland (35-40k) and Columbia Virginia Beach hip-hop duo Clipse (30-35k).
The market was down 5% vs. last week, down 10% vs. same week last year and down 13% year to date.
You may now return to enjoying the last few days of the “'Ought Decade.”
I don't get why people were expecting Chris Brown to skyrocket his sales... I think 100k is pretty good for the bad publicity he received (Rihanna case), even Rihanna who got out of the situation as the victim didn't succeed, Chris wouldn't make it either...
