Mine will outsell theirs. Just watch out!

hilary obiorah said...

The same thing happened with Tonto Dike's songs, morbid curiosity made it one of the most downloaded songs in Nigeria till death. It's all marketing strategy; create a bit of controversy, sellout a product.

I have a feeling kenye west bought enough copies just to beat existing record of beyounce and mrs obama they really bragged about it so I'm sure west took an extra step just to make it happen

@BEAUSTEVEN_BLOG. Wow! My prediction on hollywoodlife came true.... When everybody were busy saying that... The issue will not sell I and some few people in the comment section said it will.... As far as I can remember that topic on HWL was one of the most commented topic in HWL blog that wa what made me believe it will cause as much as people don't really like them they can't do without reading their gist

As for you Miss Linda, I know you hate Kim K with passion but after Ʊя Best friend Tiwa displayed her own Bikini pix a day to her wedding, I still don't know if Ʊя Hate on Kim K is justified.

Thank you.i don't know what manner of illiterates we have on this blog.its simple arithmetic.scandal,controversy breeds curiosity.
Linda does it here all the time.she puts up educational and serious posts,no one clicks talkless of comment several times.
She puts up kimk or the Tchidi Chikeres drama,or donj fights dbanj or tonto smoking weed and she gets 1million hits.
Anna wintour knew what she was doing.even if Kim n kanye buy the whole vogue printing press,what's most important to vogue is the sales.and what's most important to any celebrity worth their salt is staying relevant and in the news.
For artistes,celebs etc NO NEWS IS BAD NEWS O.SO ANY NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.

Anonymous said...

I'm 100% convinced that they privately bought a huge proportion of these magazines from the shelves by themselves. They are that vain.. Total is less than 2million dollars and with all the flak they had received before publication they wanted to ensure it didn't flop..these figures don't add up considering many people refused to buy it with some even threatening to cancel their subscription...

Anonymous said...

Linda check your sources....Please try and quote reliable sources, what is toofab.com? You gotta be kidding me!!!!???. Radaronline.com reported 500k copies as 'projected sales'. Besides most of the copies sold around them in LA so like it's been widely reported they probably bought up the copies themselves to prove a point. Besides tmz posted a picture with Kim stocking up on copies. Check your facts before posting and correct the grammatical errors above plus sentence construction. We still love you Lin, keep up d good work *wink*

All of you opening your rotten mouths to say they bought their magazine back are jealous deep down within you heart(cause let's face it even if they bought it or not they have made names for themselves for life)they are power couples on their own and their kids won't have to fill any job application form!! That's how great they are so plz focus on inproving your own life and stop hating on people who have made their billions *WORD*
