Why, what about the Mouse?
The hype was about the 17 videos I guess.
I think it's a bad comparison to say others need a month for those sales with all the promotion; it was sold on iTunes only and broke an iTunes record by selling a bunch of 17 videos exclusively there. It isn't the same thing as releasing an album in its ordinary format, and so the comparison is flawed really. Had she just done a normal album in the normal way it would just have been another album release, like any other.
I looked at the videos a bit and found them rather uninteresting, too.
I think the whole thing appears to me like 'the sketch of an idea' rather than a great piece of work as such. it isn't insulting, it's just what I feel about it.
But how this discussion arose from just one short tweet of Katy's...lol
