Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Best Selling Albums By Female Artists (Worldwide)

Well that list is just copied and pasted from Wikipedia. We can all visit there.

Additionally, you didn't put the #1 selling-album by a female artist of all time.

The Bodyguard ~ 42-44 million copies.

And yes it is widely acknowledged as a Whitney Houston album. Seeing as you apparently ignored by attempt to inform you before:
1)http://www.grammy.com/nominees/searc...1993&genre=All - Whitney alone got the Grammy for the album as Artist;
2)It is sold on Itunes as a Whitney Houston album, has a picture of her and her name printed on the front; and
3) It is acknowledged by Billboard as a Whitney Houston album: http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/bi...ate=1992-12-14.

So kindly update your original post for accuracy.

Someone is mad

No it is NOT the best selling female album because it is NOT her album alone.
There is other artists who recorded half of the album.

Re: Best Selling Albums By Female Artists (Worldwide)

love jagged little pill and Ray of light

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Best Selling Albums By Female Artists (Worldwide)

That's not a serious question, is it? It came out a week ago....

It is amazing that Shania Twain is at the top considering country has NEVER caught on outside the US. Maybe a little in Canada but it is basically a US centric genre. She really broke free and did something no one had done except maybe Garth Brooks.
