Could it be possible that young fans are rebelling against Miley Cyrus and her “new image”?
Reuters certain believes so. The assumption is based on the sexy pop princess’ new album Can’t Be Tamed, which only sold 102,000 copies in the United States and failed to top the Billboard 200.
Reuters compares the above number to what her Walmart-exclusive EP Time of Our Lives did last September. The EP, which traditionally never outsells the album in the music business did in Miley’s case, accumulating 153,000 copies during its first full week.
Compare the rest of her album history and you will find a trend that continues to dip. Her debut album, Breakout, landed at No. 1 in July 2008 with 371,000 units in the first week, while Hannah Montana sold 281,000 units in 2006.
Hannah Montana concert tickets, which also use to be a top commodity, are also in decline. Is it true? Are kids more drawn to Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Drake, and Justin Bieber these days?
