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.

She herself said she received 1,5 million (not dollars tho) for porn lol. She also said she spent 1 million on plastic surgeries too iirc, so...

She was really successful in Brazil during her heydays. About the numbers, I don't know, we don't really have that kind of official certificates from that era. 

I mean, in the end, it's a question about whether you believe or not she outsold Katy lol.

absolutely not.

and no there are ways to measure sales from the 70s and 80s. Chartmasters has detailed analysis on acts like Led Zeppelin, U2, Pink Floyd ect it's not an issue.

Brazil was not a big music market back then

u could sell well in Brasil in the 70s and 80s. look at those numbers in Brasil and compare them with other countries

http://chartmasters.org/2017/03/cspc-the-beatles-popularity-analysis/15/

same as France

http://chartmasters.org/2017/06/cspc-pink-floyd-popularity-analysis/11/

same as Spain

http://chartmasters.org/2016/06/cspc-madonna-popularity-analysis/3/

more an Italy, more than 2x Spain

http://chartmasters.org/2016/06/cspc-madonna-popularity-analysis/4/

one of the biggest figures

so what if Gretchen has been around since 1955? :wyd: half of those albums probably didn't sell sh!t or even chart  :wyd: it's just your wishful thinking that Gretchen outsold Katy. MJ and Madonna didn't achieve 16M albums in Brasil but sure Gretchen did it. :tiffcackle:

u think someone who has Diamond and multi-platinum albums would do porn? :tiffcackle:

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.

Because she loves sex
