Controversy Equals Popularity?
If certain artists think they can improve their record sales by pulling a sexy/shocking stunt, they should talk to those who've been there. Britney Spears kissed Madonna at MTV awards, but her latest album "In the Zone" has still only sold $1.8 million "roughly as many copies as her second album 'Oops, I Did It Again' did in a week." As for Christina Aguilera slutting up her image, her last album is "barely double platinum." So I doubt the little stunt at the Super Bowl will help that singer's sales. In fact, there's evidence it might even have hurt as it's generating a lot of negative buzz.
