You haters will mention Tidal, as if she sold nothing in pure sales. Whether the tidal numbers are fake, the 1.8 million in US, and 3 million+/- worldwide are not.....
How about Taylor selling albums through Pizza deliveries? If you ordered pizza, you got a Taylor Swift album? WTF is that. No one called her out for it because its Taylor. What if I just wanted pizza? I would be upset if they gave me a Taylor Swift album, when all I wanted was a large meat-lovers pizza. Or how about releasing albums in the 4th quarter every time? She wants those Christmas sales, which I understand. She is in a industry, but that is a true gimmick.
The Pizza thing was just a partnership with a Pizza company. If you ordered a Pizza with that company, you had the option to buy the Taylor Swift album, Red, as well. The album did not come with every pizza order, the album was like an option on the menu, you could order it of you wanted. It is called smart marketing. Essentially that pizza company just operated as another vendor during this period of promotion.
What is wrong with releasing albums in Q4 in every year? Everyone knows that is peak period of album sales. Similarly releasing in the summer, or late January means it is easier to get a no 1 album as sales are lower.

I have no problem with Taylor or her sells. When you guys came for the legendary Bey then it was time for me to clock in, and begin working. I actually complemented her for her work like I always do.
But calling Beyonce a gimmick to uplift Taylor will cause for a reading session. Gimmcks dont last 20 years, and gimmicks dont outperform her entire generation while receiving praise from legends like...
etc....... Taylor is bringing in numbers, so I have to show respect, but don't come for someone that has EARNED her legendary status!!!
Also how can anyone call Celine a gimmick. I am not trying to hype up, or ass kiss anyone in this thread, but Celine simply sung her heart out, and she sold and made millions. Where is the gimmick?[/quote]
I make no mention of Beyonce or Celine. I was simply explaining the Pizza deal. It was just that company acting as an additional vendor during the promotional period. Fans had the extra option to buy their album when ordering a pizza and getting them both delivered together. The album was not included with every order from that pizza company. It was just offered as an option on the menu. If you just ordered the meat-lovers pizza, then you would get that as normal. The album would not be included as an unordered extra.
