no i don't think so.

I didn't either, but every source I go to claims Gretchen has at least over 12 (or 15) million albums sold. And her first one is one of the biggest first day sales ever in Brazil for some reason.

If it's true Gretchen was a bigger force in physical sales than Katy's lifetime physical album sales combined. Sure, Katy still sold way more singles, of course.

I still find it hard to believe, even History Channel claimed it is 12 million and they know their dinosaur stuff.

Where did she sell 15m albums? In Brasil? not even MJ and Madonna sold 15m albums in Brasil.

if she was that successful then why did resort to making porn?

there are always crazy claims for local artists. Dalida, famous mainly in France, is always claimed to have sold 170M "records". Thats absolutely not true obviously. there aren't any receipts to back it up.

She sold a lot in Brazil but I was struggling to see her selling over 7 million even though her first four albums sold over 1 million, so I guess she sold well in other countries in Latin America, just like how Xuxa is really popular in other Latin America countries? I don't really have a breakdown of these numbers. There's always a chance these numbers are bollock, but I can’t find any evidence to support it or not.

And well, she was only relevant in the 80s and late 70s. Mostly for her booty and dances than for her singing skills. She lived a while without any jobs so when they offered porn for 1 million she jumped right in. And probably bad money management played a part in it too.

Now she's relevant again as a gay meme, yay

Having several million selling albums saves her from doing porn her whole lifetime though. it doesn't add up. and how do u know she was given 1M for porn? how did they get back that 1m they invested? surely not from those porn dvd sales.

unless there's proof from chartmasters, IFPI or another reliable source i don't believe the claims about her sales. my guess is that she wasn't that successful at all.
