Forums - Music Discussion - Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are dating!

Turkish said:
Calvin who? Still dont understand her popularity, the music is average and her looks is maybe a 6.

I don't know either. People get off to her break up music for whatever reason. Sometimes I think she just dates people just to leave them so she can write a song about how shes better than them. Yeah, her looks are pretty average, she reminds me of my grandmother's chihuahua.

now lets not get ahead of ourselves here. She has a long ways to go before being in the ranks of people like Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Cher, even Britney Spears and JLO. I like Taylor Swift, but just because she sells alot doesn't make her one of the biggest artists in history.

Got that part right. Biggest milking machine at the moment, for the next 15 minutes or so

15 minutess??? She's been this big since her first album.. She's on album #5 and is the only artist EVER to sell 1 million in their first week of an album release 3 times in a  row. Please stop, you're embarassing yourself. She's accomplished things that artists in 50 years haven't accomplished, even the musical greats haven't done what she's done. It can be argued that she is 1 of the top 5 biggest acts EVER in the histoy of music.

Again, you are wrong.

Utada Hikaru achieved that accolade in 2002, WITHOUT the addition of digital sales (which didnt exist then), AND only from sales in Japan, not even worldwide.

Her first week sales of the following three albums in a row:

First Love (1999) 2,026,870
Distance (2001) 3,002,720
Deep River (2002) 2,350,170

So yes.

Please stop, you're embarassing yourself.

Don't be ignorant. Musical wise she's the biggest.

Yeah, no.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_albums

In none of the album top lists.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_singles

Really low on singles list.

I get it, you like her and her music a lot, but she isn't anywhere near the biggest "musical wise". and at this point she is merely a platform for other artists to profit from through royalties/acrediting from making the music and writing the lyrics and affiliation.

Wiki[edia isn't always right. lol Taylor has sold 180 million albums and singles. Her new album alone sold millions just in the usa... Pluys half the people on
ld rthat list have like 20+ years ahead start from her lol Yes she is, what you dont get is that all her albums and singles sell consistently and sell millions... Those numbers add up over time. If you knew anything about current music youwould know taylor is at the top. 1, music doesnt sell like it used to, so the amount taylor sells is way above those numbers if they were compared to the past, and 2 I dare you to try and find 1 other artist in history who had 3 albums in a row debut with over 1 million copies in the us alone... Wanna know why you wont find it? CAUSE SHes the only person to ever do it.. Case closed you lose.



 

Reputation proceeds me, they told you I'm crazy, I swear I don't love the drama it loves me <3

Wake up and read... Sales back then were higher back then due to lack of online piracy.,.. Plus, that girl isn't even relevant outside Japan. Taylor is the only artist in the history of the united states to ever accomplish the feature. Are you living under a rock or are you just ignorant and rely on google relating to an artist that is only famous in 1 country? Taylor is a worldside star... You cannot compare sales in the 90s and early 2000s to now.. For every album sold today 5 were sold back then. If this was 2000 Taylor would have sold 3 million her first week with every album.

Majority of the people in the world do not know Taylor Swift. Her albums are mainly bought in the USA. If you look up the sales chart you can see that 80% of her records are bought in the USA. I live in Europe and I did heard her first time less than year ago. Her albums do not get even top 10 charts in continental Europe. Her first record was not even released in Germany which is the largest country in EU. Taylor Swift music is mainly country and pop. Country music cannot be heard anywhere else than in the Usa. This Ps3 is retarded. By the way, is this suppose to be gaming site?

- M, Carl



I find it weird how some people live their fantasies of being rich and famous vicariously through someone else's life. Listen to her music if you enjoy it. Live your life, and don't try to live in someone else's.

add me, the more the merrier.
