Shocked Christina is only at 30. Stripped is one of the few albums in recent times to sell over a million in the UK.

It's nice to see Pink so high. I love her to bits, but I always felt like she was treated a bit like the underdog. For me it felt like it took until 'Funhouse' for people to actually pay her any real attention. Loads of people will probably disagree, but I feel like she is better respected now.

Seeing as Gaga has sold under 3 mill and is one below Kylie, i'm guessing that about a 3rd of Kylies single sales are 'Can't Get You Out of my Head'. Looking back now, that song and all it's achieved is pretty astonishing, especially considering Kylies popularitiy just 3 years beforehand.
