Album Sales Showdown: Adam Lambert vs. Rihanna vs. Lady GaGa vs. Susan Boyle

by at . Comments

One is making headlines for simulating oral sex on stage.

Another is aiming for a comeback after a public, ugly break-up.

A third is really, really weird.

And the fourth major artist releasing a new album this week has actually broken pre-sale records, despite having been utterly unheard of just a few months ago.

Indeed, with numerous singers and record labels hoping to take advantage of the holiday season, this is shaping up to be the most competition week in CD sales history.

Adam Lambert ("For Your Entertainment"), Rihanna ("Rated R"), Lady GaGa ("The Fame Monster") and Susan Boyle ("I Dreamed A Dream") will all compete for the top spot on the charts.

And we're not even counting Britney Spears, who is releasing a collection of her number-one hits (K-Fed is definitely not inclued on that list. Zing!).

Adam is the best -- weird or not! I must admit I did not see his performance (?) on AMA, but his voice is amazing. I like Lady GaGa on some songs but I like all of Adams songs on this album. Sorry, have to say, from what I have read, I do wish he had retained some control over the act -- whoops! Wrong verb!
Why I did not see the performance is because I live in Chile and ABC does not broadcast here and Sony did not pick it up!

None of the above. Sensationalism and Shock value are the new talent barometers... Thanks Madonna.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
