    She’s a stuckup autotuned b*tch. I’m glad she never comes to my city. She also has a nasty overbite. Her pop album sounds like Avril Lavigne. I’ve seen Avril. She comes to my city on every tour. So does Katy Perry.

  • Natalie

    i was thinking the same thing… didn’t britney spears (among a few others) also sell over a million during the first week of her oops i did it again album??

  • RigoP

    I’m pretty sure they meant to say artist with multiple albums debut with 1+mil copies.

  • iron man

    It should have said, Only musical act ever to sell more than a million copies in a week on 3 album debut’s

  • Sprite

    Jazzy music is exciting, so is Katies tones.

  • TeamBella76

    Good for her but she really needs to drop the snobby act ! I really like her but her being stuck lately is killing it for me.

  • Bikz

    Wait, what? I can’t escape her either because of the PR, but what do you mean snobby?

  • As

    She was still a child when people actually bought more CDs. Taylor, it’s almost 2015 now, people stream, download…

  • moi fid

  • Nat Mirotta

    Taylor Swift is the only artist in the history of music to have 3 albums sell more than a million copies in a week.Only 19 albums have done this and Taylor has 3 of them. Eminem has 2, N’sync holds the highest sales at 2.4 million for a week and Yes Britney still holds the record for a female with 1.319 million sold in a week.

  • PlayNice

    I feel like she’s always been snobby, but that’s just my perception of her. I know two people who have worked with her and apparently she’s a bossy, spoiled, immature girl.

  • PlayNice

    Going on every talk show and being in everyone’s face for the first week that your albums come out really helps sell you. Lets be honest. Her PR team does a wonderful job.

  • Suz

    Just like we thought. Now that’s what we want to hear!!! It should go to 2.5 ml within the next week though. That is the “POWER” of “HARD WORK AND DEDICATION”. GREAT JOB Ms. Taylor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now, everyone should go out there and buy the physical album and should not be free. SHE WORKS DEAD HARD FOR IT. You will not want to work for free, would you? WE LOVE YOUR WORK MS. SWIFT!!! CANNOT WAIT FOR THE TOUR. KEEP IT POSITIVE HATERS!!!
