Adele’s sales are boosted after her VMA appearance

HollywoodNews.com: Adele is just having the best year any pop star could. Her appearance on last week’s MTV Video Music Awards was a resounding success. She came out and sang, simply, “Someone Like You” with a piano accompaniment. The result? She sold upwards of 150,000 more copies of her “21″ album and finished at number 3.

So easy when you’re talented! Beyonce and Lady Gaga got small bumps from their appearances, and Beyonce got a baby bump. All of Lady Gaga’s theatrics didn’t amount to much saleswise. Adele had the clearer message. The number 1 album for the week was Lil Wayne‘s “Tha Carter IV.” It sold a staggering 800,000 or more units. (And really, who cares? Wayne, fresh out of jail, is still rapping about being high.)

Number 2 is the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album from Warner Music. Len Blavatnik must be thrilled to see the Warner name on the charts after paying so much money for it. He was probably wondering about that. Kanye West and Jay Z are hanging in at number 4, but with quickly diminishing returns. But really, 2011 is all about Adele. We could have the Grammys now and get it over with.
