Swift Banned Beyonce CD From Target?

taylor-swift-beyonce-feudTarget’s rep told Billboard: ‘At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections..

We are primarily focused on offering CDs that will be available in a physical format at the same time as all other formats. At this time, Target will not be carrying Beyoncé’s new self-titled album.’

According to MediaTakeOut, pop stars like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry aren’t Beyonce’s biggest competition, it’s Taylor Swift. Her album sold 828,773 copies in just three days, the record was previously held by Taylo with about 617,000 sold in three days).

In 2012, Target signed an exclusive contract with Swift’s newest album ‘Red': ‘Target was the only corporation to carry the Deluxe edition of ‘Red’. Taylor was offended that Bey released the new album on her birthday and she didn’t like the manner in which it was done, so her people pressured Target NOT to carry Beyonce’s album!

In related news, Taylor will perform at Kate Middleton’s birthday party. A source told Closer: William’s been trying to get Kate’s surprise sorted for 9 January when she turns 32. When he met Taylor Swift recently he asked her if there’s any likelihood she’s in the UK for the New Year, or just after, because he knows Kate’s a fan and she’s love to meet the singer.

Like any new family, they’re looking forward to having some alone time, but they also want to catch up with friends. There’s talk of meeting with the Beckhams. William and David have been in touch since they worked on the Olympic bid together and they’re going to be in London for part of the time, so there are tentative plans for a get together.’

    Lol that’s a Bieber bullshit-type story right there, it had nothing to do with her. Target had a legitimate reason for not selling it, and why would Taylor get mad if she was celebrating with all her friends in Australia? She likes Beyonce anyways. Not sure why we are trying to put two of the biggest and most successful women in the music industry against each other. We should just applaud the both of them for reaching where they are now,at the top of the game.

    do people actually believe these kind of stories? haha

    • :)

      Unfortunately some do, smh.

  • cerenagee

    This is clearly bullshit.

  • Rah

    How do people even come up with this?

  • lolumadhuh

    Um no. Targets not selling it because they’re pressed that they didn’t get the physical copy first. Which doesn’t even fucking matter because she sold ONE MILLION COPIES WW in less than a week. So Target can stay mad. :)

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      IA. Target is kind of bullshit, they always try to do exclusives with albums. I feel like at Target, everything comes with a bonus track or a printed poster etc.

    The part about sell projection sounds correct, target has always been one to only sell albums that they know they can make a profit from. but all the BS about Taylor telling them not to sell Beyonce’s cd sounds like a load of crap. Even B herself said she wanted this a top secret. any shippments of physicals would have blown the cover since albums are delivered on weekends making it a 3 day stretch for someone to blab.. im tired of BS rumors.

    “Taylor was offended that Bey released the new album on her birthday and she didn’t like the manner in which it was done, so her people pressured Target NOT to carry Beyonce’s album!”

    HAHAHAHA… Ok, this is bs… Taylor can’t be that bitch… And Target can’t be so unprofessional… lol

    This would be believable if it was Miley instead of Taylor just because Miley makes such a huge fucking deal about her birthday and dedicates the entire month to her vindictive self. Just saying.

    • Smh.

      Shut the fuck up, what the fuck does Miley have to do with this article? Please, enlighten me.

  • boystan
