Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Sells Over 1 Million In First Week

gaga

Even though I think it is the worst album cover of all time, "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga did as I predicted and sold over a million copies in its first week. 

Amazon.com decided to sell the new Lady Extravaganza CD for $.099 cents a couple of days last week and that helped spark it.  Billboard.com is expecting it to sell 1 million and 150,000 in sales after all is said and done.

It has been 2 years since a CD has sold that much.  A month ago, the top 10 combined of Billboard sold less than 50,000 copies.  There is a chance Gaga sold more records than the top 200 cd's combined.

We knew Gaga was going to sell over a million and most likely be the last artist to do it ever.

Official numbers will be in on Wednesday but it safe to say "Born This Way" is a monumental success for her little monsters and more.-Dr.FB

New Cadbury Chocolate Ad Deemed “Racist” As It Goes After Supermodel

Above is the new ad for Cadbury chocolate and it says "Move over Naomi, there is a new diva in town" and it is causing a stir as being racist because the Naomi in question is Naomi Campbell.

It is for the "daily milk bliss" candy bar from Cadbury and it has vanilla mousse on the inside.  They describe it as brown on the outside, white on the inside.  Hmm.

Naomi had this to say about the ad; "

“I am shocked. It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people. I do not find any humour in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”

The ad has since been removed from Cadbury.  Do you think it was racist?-Dr.FB

hangover

It seems I may have been the only one who did not see "The Hangover 2" this weekend as it set a comedy box office record bringing in $105 million being made.  It now makes it the highest grossing opening for a comedy film ever.

The box office took in $280 million and "The Hangover 2" since it's Thursday opening, has made $134 million.

Kung-Fu Panda 2, which opened this weekend as well, took in $66 million.  3rd place was Pirates 4 with 50 million.

I cannot remember the last time a 3rd place movie took in $50 million dollars. 

Did any YOU see "The Hangover 2" this weekend?  What did YOU think?-Dr.FB

Prince's dancers, the Twinz, Maya and Nandy McClean, have been entertaining Los Angeles with Prince's 21 nights and have been having a blast doing it as well.  There has been other things on their minds during the run; their mom's health.

Maureen Mosele, Maya and Nandy's mom, was visiting her daughters from Australia and took ill, where she needed a blood transfusion and also:

  • 6 Nights in hospital
  • 6 blood tests
  • 1 stress test
  • 1 X-ray
  • 1 EGD procedure
  • 3 Blood Transfusion
  • 2 Ultra sounds
  • 1 Mild Anesthesia
  • 1 Nuclear injection
  • 1 Colonoscopy

More tests and possible procedures to come.  The problem?  No medical insurance for mom in Australia or in the United States.  So the Twinz put up a fund-raiser page at : healmomsheart and the Twinz add this;

Through this fundraising page, we are asking for your help. Here is your opportunity to make a difference. If you are inspired or inclined to contribute financially to this amazing woman with a big heart, she would be extremely grateful.
Please consider giving an amount that is meaningful to you. We are grateful for anything--even if it’s only $5. :)

Your help will ensure that our mother gets the care she needs.

Their mom is the sweetest.  Always with a smile on her face and just always dancing around. 

If you can please donate at HealMomsHeart ans send some Love.-Dr.FB
