Mariah Tops the Charts, But is it anything to Piss the sheets about?...

At least that's the questioned posed by Yahoo music (and me too). Mariah debuted this week at number 1 with 463,000 units sold, amazing right? yes and I'm extremely happy for her, although u guys KNOW my views on the album. Are the sales earth shattering? not quite..while this is the biggest debut in HER career, Yahoo music gives alil break down on who had bigger debuts last year, 10 in all...

Mariah Carey's E=MC2 opens at #1 with sales of 463,000--the fattest opening-week
total of her career. Carey's previous top opening (404,000) was made by her most
recent album, The Emancipation Of Mimi. E=MC2 also tops Jack Johnson's Sleep
Through The Static for the best opening so far in 2008. Johnson debuted with
sales of 375,000 in February. The last album to open with a higher sales number
was Mary J. Blige's Growing Pains, which opened with sales of 629,000 in December.

Don't be 'Hate n' on MiMi. She and her latest album are phenominal. I don't want to hear nothing about any lipsyncing on GMA either.

I am glad Yahoo jumped on her like Janet Jackson detractors jump on her. I was listening to various Mariah today, it is so upsetting she won't utilize her gift more...intricately. Ah well. We can hope for the next LP, eh?

Oh dear...pauvre Mimi. And that's all I will say on that.

Rhythmic my love, what do you think of Duffy? I H-A-T-E MTV (EXCEPT for the Hills of course), where I heard this song "Mercy". I have been playing the album all morning...DISCUSS!!! :)
