    Not when they are making ostentatious claims such as '109m sold for Thriller'.

    Yes shipment amounts DO change. But you've not listed shipment literature (i.e. gold, platinum, diamond) - you've listed actual shipments. So again, I don't know why you insist on digressing from the first point which is:

    Your Figures Are Terribly Overrated

      Most of Cher's albums, and singles did not recieve gold or platinum status in any country because they did not sell a significant amount

          I really don't care what you people think, but this information I thought I should share with you since it is a mysterious, and often asked question in the music industry. But I can tell you this. She has sold some 275 million- 300 million albums world wide (this nuumber includes solo, Sonny & Cher, Blackrose, Allman and Woman, and other albums she appeared on)
          As part of Sonny & Cher she sold 80 million albums. This is a known fact, and is not disputable.

            UKMIX rule:
            If you're posting sales figures then please try to make sure you post correct ones. Don't deliberately post inflated ones for your favourite artist (or deflated ones for your least favourite artist for that matter) as it only causes needless conflict

            Jayrock, you're keep on posting inflated numbers, coming from a secret source and without any WW breakdown... Why should we all believe you?

            :-? Keep on writing them on your books but not here please.

                  Including every single disc that Cher has ever sold in music (album, single, DVD) - she hasn't surpassed even 100m records worldwide. So how the HELL you can come to the conclusion (without breaking down anything, and despite you otherwise being proven wrong) that she has sold 275-300m albums makes you sound not only stupid, but also ignorant. Congratulations.

                    You English are the rudest people in the world. You people even out rank the Americans on rudeness. Thankfully my book is not being released there in the YUK as that is how you people look.

                          Yes, and you're possibly the most deluded person I've ever come across. The fact that you pluck your figures from biographers and labels, occasionally throwing in a piece of Soundscan and Billboard data + your own very misinformed notions of how the music industry works ("Billboard confirmed sales of 10m in 2000, so it must be at 20m by now") renders your book utterly useless, if that is what its spouting.

                            I have never said any such thing. I said Billboard is quoted as saying 10 million in 2000, but according to articles and Billboard in recent years have cited her Believe album as selling 20 million copies world wide. I even remember hearing that her album reached the 12 million mark back in 2000

                              And it became one of the biggest selling catalog album of the history selling 8-10 million during the 00s...

                                I don't know about that. But I am sure of this: I'm meeting with Roger Davies and Cher next month in Las Vegas opening night of her show to have a short one-on-one interview and I'm going to ask her manager personally. I'll hopefully be able to bring a video or voice recorder with me and somehow send it to you for you to hear the response, or even tell them to send me an email which I will then send to you to correct your madness

                                  I don't want any e-mails, voice recording with Cher talking about her sales.
                                  Even if Cher herself would claim she's sold that much that wouldn't be official.

                                  Lady Gaga herself claims her album is Diamond worldwide. Is it true? No.
                                  Guinnes World record says Thriller has sold 109 million copies. Is it true? No.
                                  Medias claim that Elvis and Beatles sold 1 billion records. Is it true? No.

                                  Artists/Labels/Media are not offcial/reliable sources unfortunatly.

                                    kind of irrelevant question but... according to verifiable/probable estimations... who are the best-selling female singers?

                                      Here's the top 3
                                      1. Madonna - 320-330 million records
                                      2. Celine Dion - 210-220 (?) million records
                                      3. Mariah Carey - 200 million records

                                      Then there's Whitney, Barbra, Janet and Britney.

                                        TOTAL RECORDS:

                                        1. Madonna - 300-305 million
                                        2. Celine Dion - 215-220 million
                                        3. Mariah Carey - 200 million
                                        4. Whitney Houston - 180 million
                                        5. Barbra Streisand - 170 million
                                        6. Britney Spears - 110 million
                                        7. Janet Jackson - 110 million
                                        8. Shania Twain - 100 million
                                        9. Sade - 95 million
                                        10. Enya - 90 million

                                        There are some other female artists that have sold not far off this list such as Tina Turner. In fact, I'd argue that Diana Ross has probably sold around 100m records solo herself.

                                          Nice to see Madonna on top and wow at Britney so high so fast but what about non-western singers such as Nana Mouskouri or Alla Pugacheva... any estimates for them? btw... Sade is not a female solo singer, it's a group

                                            Enya has not sold 90 million albums. In 2003 she was listed at 40 million albums, but in 2007 that number jumped to 80 million. There is no way she sold 40-50 million albums in a period in which she released only one moderately successful album.

                                              For one, Guinnes World records is a reliable source. For example, they said that Cher's Farewell tour grossed more than $437 million, but they took into account merchandise, and ticket sales from all 325 shows.

                                              Also, shipment amounts eligible for certifications change every few years. For example, a Platinum album in Canada is now 80,000 compared to 100,000 in 1999
                                              Guinness World records is not that reliable. How did Michael Jackson sold over 100m for Thriller? He sold some in mars? Yes, it's the biggest selling album of all time but they doubled the number!

                                              And your charts/sales are far off from anything I see. Wayne, Nichu and the rest are more accurate and reliable with evidences!

                                                Where was she listed with 40 million? On her label sales database?

                                                Wayne was talking about records sales if you didn't notice, that means albums + singles + DVD/VHS and digital tracks.

                                                  No need to wait until her opening night. If you have contact, you should send email to her to ask for breakdown in each country/records now. I hope tonight you finish it.
                                                  I am waiting to see such list. At least she has more time to make up.

                                                    you do realise that you're not just throwing dubious figures here but you're also being biased with people from other countries?
