11 July 2010




Country trio Lady Antebellum tops the midyear tally of album sales. The group's “Need You Now” is the year's biggest-selling album so far with 2.4 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures through the week ended July 4.

Justin Bieber's “My World 2.0” is in second place with sales of 1.4 million, and Sade's “Soldier of Love” is third with a little over 1.2 million. Lady Gaga's “The Fame” is fourth with 1.2 million. “Recovery” has moved 1.1 million in just two weeks' time, placing it at No. 5 on the midyear list of best-selling albums.

Thanks to Eminem's recently released “Recovery,” five albums — compared to last year's four — have sold at least a million copies in the first half of 2010.

Eminem and Gaga also made it into the quartet of million-sellers at the midyear point of 2009. The rapper's last release, “Relapse,” was the third-best seller with 1.2 million, while Gaga's “The Fame” was fourth with 1 million.

Last year Taylor Swift's “Fearless” topped the list with 1.4 million, and the “Hannah Montana: The Movie” soundtrack was second with a little over 1.2 million.

<B>Dannielle Owens-Reid</B> -- the <B>Justin Bieber</B> look-alike behind lesbianswholooklikejustinbieber.tumblr.com -- wants to be MTV's first ever `Twitter
Jockey.'
A woman who’s the spitting image of teen sensation Justin Bieber could be the next MTV personality.

Dannielle Owens-Reid has a massive online following through her popular blogs, lesbianswholooklikejustinbieber .tumblr.com and everyoneisgay.com.

She’s one of 20 social media buffs up for a job as MTV’s first ever “TJ,” or Twitter Jockey, who’ll update followers on the latest entertainment news through Tweets.

Owens-Reid says she’s been working on her jockey persona by looking to ultra-cool MTV VJs of the past like Downtown Julie Brown and Ananda Lewis for inspiration.

If she wins, her first gig will be reporting from the MTV Video Music Awards, which could finally bring her face-to- face with Bieber.

She plans on wearing the same outfit as the teenage dreamboat for the encounter – down to the side-swept hair – so he can see the uncanny resemblance for himself.

OMG no! That would be so annoying. Splitting image? I don't think so! She looks nothing like him. Not even the hair. More like she should start a site called "alesbianwholooksmorelikeclayaikenthansexyjustinbieber.com". ahahhaa :p

Justin Bieber fans flock to his Twitter page to find out what the teen superstar is tweeting about each day. But is Justin really the person tweeting to his 3,500,000-plus followers?

It's no secret that some busy stars have their employees posting on Twitter. So, we'd hate to think that Justin has been outsourcing his tweets.

Justin's followers can breathe a sigh of relief, because his manager says tweeting is a daily priority for Justin.

"If he's not on his Twitter, I'll call him and say: 'Get on it,'" Scott Braun told the Scotsman. "As long as he keeps communicating with his fans, he can address any rumour directly because he's speaking to them."
