Billboard says that Taylor Swift’s new album Lover, which came out on Friday, became the biggest album of the year after only two days. Okay, well there are still four months left. We’ll see what numbers the Cats soundtrack cranks out! And the parents of the Swifties are going to be pissed after finding out that their brat took a second mortgage on their house to buy a mountain of copies of that shit.
Nielsen Music says that Lover sold almost 500,000 copies through the second day of it’s release. This makes it the fastest-selling album of the year beating Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack which sold 444,000 it’s first week. Now Taylor has beat her own record for sales numbers, as her Reputation album sold 1.216 million copies its first week and Taylor’s Lover will only be doing better. It doesn’t hurt Taylor’s sales that she has all these exclusive Target editions and tons of merch bundled with the album, and a Capital One partnership, so like… she’s hustling. DJ Khaled: take note.
Speaking of the deluxe edition, People says she included in one version some excerpts from her diaries. Who doesn’t want to read about Olivia Benson’s pooping habits, or about the Etsy crafts she’s waiting for in the mail? One of the entries, September 18, 2009, is from five days after the Kanye West stage-crash at the VMAs. Here’s what she wrote:
“Ahh… the things that can change in a week. If you had told me that one of the biggest stars in music was going to jump on stage and announce that he thought I shouldn’t have won on live television, I would’ve said, ‘That stuff doesn’t really happen in real life’. Well… apparently…. It does.”
Wow… Bridget Jones, she is not. That is the least spicy diary entry I’ve read ever. I wouldn’t even get a lock on that diary because sis, no one will want to read that boring-ass shit. Where’s the emotion? Where’s the tea? Where is the gossip? Someone needs to get Taylor some seasonings because her diary is bland.
