Are You Surprised That Blackout Debuted at No. 1?

Most of you said you weren't planning on buying Britney's new album, but it looks like the masses disagreed on this one. Blackout sold over 325,000 copies, making it No. 1 on the Billboard charts after its first week. This is a great accomplishment for Brit, but it's still only half of In The Zone's opening week sales of 609,000 copies. We want to know — are you surprised that Britney's album hit #1?

Good, I'm glad they did it. Some people just don't appreciate where you put them in life. They tend to forget that they didn't get that mansion out of the air. Somebody out here bought something of theirs and gave them the money. When they get unappreciative and crazed and DON’T want the help, then people should look the other the way. She needs psychological help. And I don’t say that as a joke or to be mean. The signs are there.

WOO HOO! There's some justice: LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In an unusual development on the pop album charts, veteran rock band the Eagles were awarded the No. 1 spot on Tuesday after a last-minute rule change relegated Britney Spears to second place. Anyone who thinks they aren't supporting Britney's lifestyle when they buy her album don't know much about music royalties. Artists (and I use the term loosely with Britney) make money off of every copy sold, either as a CD or a download. If that weren't the case, why do you think there is such a fuss about illegal downloading?

She lost the number 1 spot on Billboard. Due to a Billboard policy revision, she's a distant #2 to the Eagles. Fitting, her being #2.

Its surprising she has fans she is such a mess and I'm kind of sick of her, but I guess that her privet life shouldn't affect her career and stuff like that. I personaly wouldn't buy anything form her I never had.

Well being an under-functioning adult and all, I must have been silly to have been under the impression that music is just that music...and as an under functioning adult I must be wrong in thinking that opinions were just that opinions. But having a brain as small as the one I have- im just plain ol wrong Yall.......so in order to be a functioning adult I need to blast everyone who has an opinion other then my own and insult them as well....ok i get it now. I feel smarter already !yeah! Come on ITS JUST MUSIC....

BTW i'm not a big fan of hers either so everyone reading my comment should be shocked haha

Actually I have the album and it's REALLY GOOD! Im not joking it's actually amazing and im surprised she pulled it off..I like it more than anything shes ever done!

I'm not surprised, but not for the reason listed. It's just that whether or not her behavior alienates fans (and most would say that it has), she is good at producing solid pop tracks. It sure beats Ashlee Simpson and a lot of other pop tarts out there.

"Many people in the country and in this world do not deserve to have there kids but they do because people dont see what happens to these children on a daily basis. So yes there are many more "Britneys" out there" But just because other people are treating their children terribly, does not mean that it is any less harmful!! Please.

She has the strongest fan-base demographic out there...gay men and adolescent girls (who are now under-functioning adults)...get these 2 groups on your side and you're set for life...no matter what garbage you feed'em!!!

britney fans are idiots IMO. Im sorry.. but, I rarely read news about her nowadays cause everyday its brit news argh. the great majority of them say they want to support her, want her to get better. and what do they do? THEY BUY HER ALBUM, thus feeding her ego and her pocket. The woman needs someone to slap in the face and hard, or else she´ll continue to do this ridiculous acts. oh her kids..
ladybugrenee ladybugrenee 8 years

I'm surprised because she's being supported by people who bash her all the time.

I know its not gossip but buying her CD or not buying her CD is not going to change the fact shes a crappy mom. The right people stepped in and they are hopefully doing something to change that. Im not going to write someone off forever because they screw up-or have a serious addiction- thats not right I think having her children taken from her is lesson enough and she needs to be the one to decide if shes going to learn from it. Many people in the country and in this world do not deserve to have there kids but they do because people dont see what happens to these children on a daily basis. So yes there are many more "Britneys" out there and its not a lame excuse because its the truth. Not to be harsh but Its like- ok shes a crappy mom - lets move on already ,(hopefully that will change) but its not like something isnt being done about it thank god for the boys sake. People shouldnt be put down because they like her music or choose to buy her cd.

"if she has a good album, then I think she deserves the credit that comes with it" Unless she didn't do most of the work on it. I think some people that don't know a lot about the industry don't realize how many hours and hours and hours of hard work her producers had to do to create that cd(and writers and backup singers) ....and how little she had to do. She was probably about 1/100th of the effort that went into it, but if you don't understand the business, you won't understand how true that is. But if you want to buy into the package she is sell, go for it.
