Miley Cyrus has been tamed again.
After an incredibly disappointing opening week of sales for "Can't Be Tamed," fans of this young singer said to wait. It's just been a few days, they cried! Give the album time!
A week later, though, the compilation is barely holding a place in the Billboard 200's top 10. With Eminem's "Recovery" still holding strong at number-one (with 313,000 copies sold), Miley's CD fell six places to number-nine, selling just 32,000 copies.
That's an astounding 68% drop-off from last week.
By comparison, Miley's 2008 "Breakout" sold 1.5 million copies and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. There's very little chance "Can't Be Tamed" will achieve half that level of success.
Does this mean Miley has lost a significant amount of her fan base? There's no other way to see it. Numbers speak for themselves.
Perhaps she should go to college, after all. They have marketing classes there.
