Well she did spend a thousand bucks buying it herself. But still, this is expected, although I don't like the record at all. With that said, I did enjoy The Fame Monster, but Born This Way is a huge letdown for me.

Hope Wayne outsells her.

Is that more or less than what 50 Cent did in the first week with The Massacre six years ago?

album still would have sold over a million if she didn't buy 100 copies of her own CD

pretty much, Massacre sold 1.4 million in its first week. Taylor Swift sold 1.04 million her first week with Speak Now, and Tha Carter III moved 1.05 million copies.

Good for her (and amazon) figuring out how to move units. Album is still laughably bad.

I enjoy a few of the songs but her first is miles better than this. Good on her for working out a way to do this.
