So the label puts out an *Nsync album with ZERO publicity. The guys in *Nsync don’t even know it’s coming out. They put it out today, and it’s sold out on amazon, and top 10 on itunes.
That says so much about *Nsync and what they were. There was NO PUBLICITY. No one knew this was coming out and no one preordered it. An album with no new recorded music and no publicity did this well. Imagine if they actually put out a new album with new songs and did promo. It would smash records again. It definitely would.
This is pretty much unbelievable and amazing. I’m just so proud to be an *Nsync fan. *Nsync fans are the best.

↳ Celebrity Day
On July 24th, 2001, *NSYNC released their third and final album, Celebrity. Though it sold significantly less than their previous effort, No Strings Attached, it still managed to move 1.8 million units in its first week of sales and ranks right below No Strings Attached for the record of Fastest Selling Album in the US. The album spawned 3 hit singles (“Pop”, “Gone”, and “Girlfriend”) as well as 2 tours (the PopOdyssey and Celebrity Tours) and is notable for having 10 out of its 13 tracks written by group members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, with the addition of a solitary track penned by founding member Chris Kirkpatrick on foreign editions of the album.

There is a big spider in my office. I’m not exaggerating, it’s BIG. I can’t kill it, I can’t kill spiders because then I feel bad. At the same time, I can’t catch it and release it outside because it’s HUGE and I’m terrified of it.
I keep looking at the floor around my desk because I’m afraid it’s going to creep up on me. It’s only 10:30am. This is going to be a long day.
