Is all publicity good publicity?

:rolleyes:

After 48 hours....

#1 on world ringtone chart
#1 on yahoo music


Itunes


US 1
Australia, 1
Canada, 1
Bangladesh, 1
Siberia, 1
New Zealand, 2
France, 2
Sweden, 3
Norway, 9
Italy, 14
Belgium, 22
Denmark, 28
Luxembourg, 29
Finland, 31
Holland, 72

Pretty impressive considering her only promotion was her terrible performance at the VMAs and she hasn't released a video


Britney Spears has one unlikely ally in her comeback struggle: Simon Cowell.

Mr. Nasty is telling “Extra” that he actually likes the troubled pop star – and that she might be making all the right moves!

“She’s all over the news, she gets more publicity that the entire Hot 100 combined, so maybe she’s doing everything right and everyone else is getting it wrong,” he confessed to “Extra.”

The “American Idol” judge also says folks should cut Britney some slack for what the pop star goes through.

I am not saying the song isn't doing well but using Itunes is really misleading. Itunes does a lot of business but not enough to greatly affect the outcome on the charts. Being #1 at Itunes doesn't guarantee even a top 50 charting on Billboard.

I'm sorry but at no point in time has any song that has been on the Itunes number one chart not reached the top 50 40 or 30. This song is gonna have a big jump next week on the charts and its do to Itunes.

And this is only the second day on Itunes. Without any promotion from Jive or Britney at all. And the official release date is on 1st October.

The song is already #17 on Mediabase/Airplay Chart.

Britney will be in the top 30 with ease next week on the Billboard Hot 100. With a video soon to be released, buzz for this song will only go up. She was confirmed earlier this year for SNL -- hosting and performing but no news about that yet ( obviously before the album releases ). With downloads and ringtones counting into a song's formula now, GIMME MORE has a legitimate shot at # 1 because of her loyal fanbase. If Toxic had used this formula, it would have been # 1. ( Her only # 1 was Baby One More Time ).

Good news! Gimme More will shoot all the way up to #3 on the Hot 100 released tomorrow!! It's #1 on the Hot Digital Downloads Chart, of course! Now to get to #1 the radio will have to play it more, because downloads can only take it so far. I don't know what the top two are, but I'm assuming they are Crank That and Stronger, and those two songs are dying fast. I think Gimme More will reach #1 within the next month!

'More' Scores For Britney On Digital ( #1 ), Hot 100 ( #3 ) Charts



In the midst of another trying week in Britney Spears' personal life, she receives some positive professional news as "Gimme More" opens at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs with 179,000 downloads and soars 68-3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both charts will be posted tomorrow (Oct. 4) on Billboard.com.

"More" is her fifth Hot 100 top 10 and her best showing on the list since her smash debut "...Baby One More Time" hit No. 1 for two weeks in January 1999. Her last top 10 was "Toxic," which peaked at No. 9 in March 2004.

Earlier this week, a California judge ordered Spears to hand over custody of her two small children to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. A hearing is scheduled today for further custody proceedings between the couple.

:rolleyes: @ some people in here. The girl may be as fucked up as the come, but this song is HOT. The beat is amazing and it's as catchy as can be. If you like pop music, this is the cream of the crop. Perfect song to bump to in the clubs, too. I've already danced to it at a few. :cool: It's awesome.

Some of you are just H8TORS!!!!!111

And for the record, I don't even like the girl that much, but I cheer for her cause I like a comeback story of any kind, and she really doesn't deserve a lot of what she gets in the media. She's obviously going through a difficult time in her life and I'm happy to see her making something of herself again to shutup all the assholes who make it their life's work to shit all over her.

Gimme More is by far her best song ever, Toxic being 2nd best. The rest I'm not really crazy about :o, but if people like it then whatever. Who am I to judge?

You know if that was really the case Courtney Love's last album America's Sweetheart would have gone platinum.
Her album sucked regardless of her life being a train wreck and that's why it hasn't gone anywhere.

Gimme More is a good song.

Maybe you're forgetting that Britney had songs in the top 10 as of 3 years ago and her life wasn't a train wreck then.

Partly, yes. There's no denying that. As Simon Cowell said, it sure as hell can't be hurting. But if the song was really "bad", the response to it wouldn't be nearly as positive as it's been. It's a combination of factors that's made the song successful to this point. Not fair to attribute it all to her life being a wreck, when the fact of the matter is she's had great success prior to her life becoming what it is.

Actually it's not getting that much airplay.
If it was it would be number one by now with all the digital downloads it has.

BTW, Americans are cheap.
We don't pay 99 cents for a song, unless it's worth it.
We don't do anything for charity, well unless it's worth it.

Example: Carrie Underwood's I'll Stand By You.
The song was for a good cause but if it wasn't good it probably would have been with the other ITunes songs for a good cause, nowhere on the charts.
That song got to number 6 on the billboard charts without any help from radio.

The song is worth paying for.
You might not want to agree with that BUT American trends say otherwise.

Now you know that's not the case.
Kanye West's Stronger was number one two weeks ago and to me, it's not that good of a song.
Marketing Strategies rule the charts now.

Almost on the verge of death or mental breakdown has never been a marketing strategy.

Now if you die people start to care and buy albums/singles.

Look at Mariah Carey as an example.
2001 was the year she had her breakdown. We didn't give a fuck. :lol:
She tried to get people to buy an album of crap and it was one of her worse selling albums.

We love a comeback but only if you're giving us something to care about a comeback as an artist.

Obviously.

It's pretty ridiculous to think the publicity she's getting is helping her sales and airplay. Normally I'd say most publicity, whether good or bad, can help, but in this case it's gone to such a level that in no way it is helping her, especially after the VMA performance.

Anyway, for the song, it's a pretty decent dance song. It's crap if I'm going to judge by my standards, but when it comes to the rest of mainstream music, it's pretty good. I'd take it any day over that crap Umbrelle ella ella we had to deal with. I'm really not surprised at the high downloads.

It just goes to show that whether her life is a wreck or not, that's not what's gonna define whether or not Britney is a success in the music industry. She's been successful when her life wasn't in shambles, and she's still successful now. I thought that was self-explanatory.

I take it you're not a fan of popular music in general (I think that's a safe assumption), and that's fine. People all over the world still love "pop" for various reasons though, and that won't change. Obviously, Britney is just one of the artists these days producing this style of music. You're just gonna have to deal with it, ultimately. :lol: By "pop" standards, 'Gimme More' is a very good song, but just not one you enjoy. That's really all this is about. You don't like it, a lot of the general public does. As to why they like it and why people are buying Britney's single, that's open to debate... but ultimately it's just a conflict of taste between you and the "sheep" so to speak.

But I don't know, if someone from that time said Britney would end up a trainwreck, would people laugh in their face or say, yeah someone with that much media pressure on them is bound to collapse?

On the contrary, I like pop music fine....I just think the standard has clearly decreased over the years if that average song is looked at as something more. :shrug: I personally think talented musicians do not get a chance these days because of all these computer generated singers being pushed down our throat. To think that in the 70's Donna Summer was the 'Popular' artist or the 80's with Stevie Nicks or Pat Benetar, John cougar Mellencamp to the 90's with Prince and Michael Jackson to Brittney 'talentless' spears.....yeah, if you're buying into a catchy beat and some flashy computer vocals as a high standard of music then we certainly will never agree.

Do people really think that song is so 'catchy' that it's doing well in spite of the bad press? Come on. The fact that everyone is talking about her means that she is on the minds of every dj, on the page of every entertainment web page.....articles on music websites about her performance....if you think that didn't cause a lot of interest into what all the hoopla was about....then oh well. :shrug:

Don't get me wrong here. I don't think Britney is a talented musician at all. She relies on a team of producers to make her songs, lyrics, beats, etc. It's not really a result of any of her talent or input, which is a shame. But like I said before, she does have great dance/performance skill. It's not easy to execute choreography as easily as she does, so she's not completely talentless in that regard. Musically, yeah, I agree though.

Anyway, I totally see your point about how popular music didn't used to be like this, but I guess that's just how it goes. Even though it doesn't require talent (on Britney's part anyway), the flashy beat and computer-aided vocals do sound really good. :lol: Great music to dance to, very catchy beat... pretty much everything you want in a pop song (apart from the overuse of computers).

And also, it's not like genuinely talented musicians don't exist and have success these days. There are plenty of musical talents out there that write their own music and don't need insane technology to sound good. You just gotta pick and choose what you like and stay away from the stuff that you don't. It's all there... just mixed in with a bunch of these "pop princesses" that you seem to not be fond of. To each their own.

Do people really think that song is so 'catchy' that it's doing well in spite of the bad press? Come on. The fact that everyone is talking about her means that she is on the minds of every dj, on the page of every entertainment web page.....articles on music websites about her performance....if you think that didn't cause a lot of interest into what all the hoopla was about....then oh well. :shrug:
I do think it helps, as I've already said. Press is press, whether it be positive or negative. If people are talking about you, that's a good thing. Everybody wants to know what's going on with Britney Spears, she's the hottest topic in every tabloid and celebrity news wire. Of course that will make people curious about her music.

But like I've said, Britney has already proven that she doesn't need all this "hoopla" going on around her to get people to listen to her music. That's the major point here. It just goes to show that even if Britney wasn't the trainwreck she is now, her new single/upcoming album would still have the potential to be a great success. Would it create as much buzz this early? Doubtful. But it would likely still be successful.

The 70s and 80s are all about one hit wonders and beats.
Few artist even made it to the next decade and there was a portion who made it who weren't even that good in their time.
Look at Paula Abdul in the 80s and 90s.
Debbie Gibson.
Dan Fogelberg in the 70s who created probably the gayest song ever in the history of music.

It has nothing to do with high standard of music, it has to do with the willingness to open your mind and understand that music evolves good and bad.

You might think Britney Spears is bad. Well so was Paula Abdul.
And yet anyone will probably groove to the either's songs in guity pleasure.

So we had Pat Benatar and Stevie Nicks in the 80s.
We have P!nk and Kelly Clarkson now.
Stevie Nicks btw has had some very nice hits on the dance charts in the past year so it's not like she's gone yet.
One more thing. Using as an example an artist that sounds like a goat in heat does not help your argument.

Every time has it's good hits and bad hits.
And being high and mighty and saying this decade was the best or this genre is the best is not the way to appreciate music.
It just leads to elitist attitudes that leaves you out to enjoying what others enjoy.

BTW, record companies give artist more freedom than they did 20 years ago and if they fail because of it then so be it.

Clive Davis from 20 years ago was a tyrant compared to what he is now.
Sure Whitney did well but do you think she wanted to sing that campy shyt, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"?
The video was almost as gay as The Weather Girl's "It's Raining Men".
