More Bad News For Lady Gaga
Yesterday, I reported That a shipment of Lady Gaga’s new CD, ‘Born This Way’ was seized by government officials upon arrival at the Beirut Airport. The issue is apparently one of censorship. The Lebanese government is apparently concerned about reaction from Lebanon’s widely varied religious groups. More bad news for the pop star. Neilsen/ Soundscan reports sales of ‘Born This Way’ dropped off from a first- week total of 1,108,00 copies to a disappointing 74,00 for the week ending June 5th. That’s an 84% drop, the worst ever reported in Soundscan history. The huge first week total included 440,000 copies being sold by Amazon.com at 99 cents apeice. She may not log a third week at #1. Adele’s ’21’ is only 53,00 copies behind.
