Kylie Minogue’s latest album, ‘X,’ was a flop in the U.S., only reaching 143 on this week’s Billboard charts. The album sold only 6,000 copies in it debut week, which is a far cry from its international success last November.
In it’s international debut ‘X’ reached #2 in Britain, and #1 in Kylie’s native Australia.
But the low numbers weren’t for lack of trying. Kylie and her record label promoted the album heavily the past couple weeks, with appearances on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ NBC’s ‘Today,’ and the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
‘It’s a slightly weird situation for me because I can still walk the streets here (in Los Angeles) and no one will recognize me. I love it,’ she said in an interview earlier this year.
Good thing that Kylie is a tough one, and can see the bright side of being not-so-famous here in the U.S. I suppose after beating breast cancer, everything else seems not as important.
