Britney is not a sell out like bleach, that's the reason. Why do you care so much about numbers. It's all an illusion, you know. If Britney wanted she could be just as "successfull" as thief, but she wants her freedom and happiness. Been there done that. Britney is a ******* legend and plays by her own rules now, has sold MUCH more than bleach and is filthy rich. Still she manages to make the best album in years, looking out of this world and happier than ever, and performing with such a fierce attitude. Britney doesn't buy her own albums or views and stays far away from "relevance" cause it almost took her life. She was haunted and didn't have any privacy at all. And look at bleach and all the other illuminti promoters; do they seem happy or free to you? I need to ignore more people.
