    She did good for a beginner.

    “$16.9 million” That’s still a lot of money.

    • Boo

      Except she’s not a beginner?

      • javi g

        remember its her first world tour as a solo artist. plus i think the producers or hollywood records did a pretty bad job on promoting the tour.also most of her fans didn’t know she was on tour or in any of those cities. i saw most of them saying i didn’t know she was in my town. and most of them where from instagram.

        • :)

          “remember its her first world tour as a solo artist.” What was she on her last tour?

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            she was ‘selena gomez and the scene ‘

          • :)

            And? She performed with a band this time around didn’t she?

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            Tbh, there’s no difference between Selena as the solo artist and Selena and The Scene. She still gets all the recognition as she did before. Maybe it felt different to her without “the scene”, who knows really.

          • :)

            Don’t tell me. Tell that to Queen Amanda Bynes.

            Sorry to say but selena is not an artist, no matter who’s behind her.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            the scene was her band.. she was technically in a band , that’s why people refer to this as her debut ablum/debut tour.

          • :)

            Debut album or debut tour — she tanked!

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            her album was number one…..

          • :)

            Omg, LMFAO!!!! 95 or 97 thousand albums sold in the first week, big fucking whoop. I don’t think it’s gone gold yet. Yep, she tanked.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            for any artist to have a number one album is amazing.i can see your points with the tour but a number one album is not easy to fucking get. you do realize that every album is like 14 dollars when it first comes out , so multiply that by 97 k and it is over 1.3 million in 7 days.

          • Guest

            Nope,didn’t go platinum or gold.

            The only reason she went number 1 is because no other artist released new music that week.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            kk

          • :)

            Bingo!

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            No apologies needed, how you view her is none of my concern. :)

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            When she first came out I though she couldn’t sing/ wasn’t a real artist. but after ‘naturally’ i liked her.
            and who says and love you like a love song where honestly really good singles.

            she is an artist , whether or not she is a good one is up to you.
            shes catchy though :)

          • Godney

            Yes!, i always say this about Selena, i dont think she is very talented but she has good producers and good people behind her that makes her able to do good songs like naturally, undercover and round and round.
            And tbh the sound of the scene comparation with selena gomez alone changed alot.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            Yes there has been growth especially since kiss and tell lol

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            lol no she didnt perform with them, she was solo.on her old albums they say ‘selena gomez in the scene ‘ as the artist.now she is credited as just ‘selena gomez’

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        Stars Dance is her first (solo) world tour.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      Actually, my fault I got it wrong.

      “$16.9 million” is what she made in North America ranking: #61

      “$20.3 million” is what she made Worldwide ranking: #83

      • Ricardo

        Europe Tour failed… she should went to Latin America, Australia and then Europe.. and I’m European but here she’s not that strong.

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          Yeah that’s why they shouldn’t have announced those other dates. Maybe she could finish the end of the tour she canceled in smaller venues and just focus on her acting career after that. Especially if she doesn’t want to go stale in Hollywood. As I said previously before it looked unprofessional so she has to make up for it somehow. But… If she canceled her last tour dates then they weren’t selling.

          • Ricardo

            Australia and Japan were great and she needed the break, look at her .. we have no new about her in 9 days she’s really in a break but she’s so good on Latin America, she’s strong there she should have done it like Demi: USA, Latin America, Canada and my guessing Europa and Australia to biggest to smallest.

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            I’m glad she’s on break, working too hard can bring a lot of stress but right in the middle of her tour? That’s work, that’s her job. When she wants to work with people she might be questioned.

            Yeah Demi does good when it comes to touring, her team takes care of that fairly well. They both need some advice from Taylor on breaking records though.

            And Selena took a real break, we haven’t seen her in daaayyss.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            to get where taylor is at they have to connect with their fans through their songs and make them feel like they know you while you listen.

            taylor writes her music so it always feels real and genuine
            Demi and selena dont ( demi use to)

            Come and get it and heart attack don’t tell us any thing about selena

            we are never getting back together, i knew you were trouble,begin again, and 22 tell us everything about taylor

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            I would have to agree.
            22, love story, back to September are some of my faves and I can relate to them in different areas of my life. Demi is all about her struggle and I get that, I’ve been there mentally but I can no longer relate to her but I do still enjoy listening to her and she remains one of my faves.

            Selena.. She’s all about catchy music. I listen to Selena when I want to dance or want something up-beat. I don’t connect to her musically.
            Demi at least connects with her fans on Twitter. Selena doesn’t, she stays quite private about almost everything and that could be damaging. Selena use to be real laid back and open, I don’t know what the heck happened.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            yeah i know what you mean.
            i connect most when they write songs like demis entire first album was written by her and i loved it , and selenas best song on kiss and tell IMO was written by her .maybe it’s easier to just get a random song but i guess that’s why taylor mad it so far.and i dont know what happened to selena either.
            i remember she had a youtube and myspace when i was younger lol.

          • Godney

            If her dates werent selling i think is more honest to just plain cancel and not pull off a lady gaga on it

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            Exactly, which means it doesn’t look unprofessional, it was logical. So she’ll be fine.

        • Nikolas Anton

          I’m also European and i think she is famous in a lot of countries in Europe if you ask me it was lack of promoting

  • Cici

    She did awesome & looks so gorgeous in that picture.

  • live.love.learn.

    83…was this really worthy of a post?

    • Unicorn

      To OceanUp(huge selenator)this is slay. lol, BIeber at his worst year still made 10x more

  • lol

    I wonder what its like for her to be friends with taylor who is always number 1 at these things. i know they probably don’t talk about business at all but i wonder if she ever feels jealous. not hating on their friendship though cause they’re super cute.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      Same, I wonder too. Not in an envies hostile way but in a “how does it feel for her honestly” way.

      • lol

        Yep, thats what i was thinking. like i know selena will always support her and be happy for her but taylor’s tour made almost 100 million more dollars than hers, it must just suck sometimes.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        if anything taylor can give her advice in how to make her next tour different and attract a wider audience, so if anything it helps that their close friends( though i doubt they talk about those type of things, maybe they should start lol)

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          She said they do talk to each other about their music. Maybe she could give her some pointers because once she’s off break she’s got to make up for canceling a tour. I know she probably needed it and I’m not shaming her on that, however it probably looked so unprofessional. Yeah, so hopefully Taylor can help her out.

          • Sue

            Stars Dance was her last album though. I think shes gonna focus on acting.

          • Godney

            I think it could look more unprofessional if we see her out party like crazy… if she plays her cards right she can pull this off

        • :)

          Taylor should tell her to give it up. First, Kid Rock calls her out for lip syncing, her halftime show was a shambles and then she gets caught lip syncing during jingle ball and throws a hissy fit.

          • lol

            A lot of people get caught lip syncing these days though. Katy perry got caught twice in like two days. But thats cause all those artists are the same such as katy, rihanna, selena, and even miley. They dont write their own music, their albums are the types where you release hit singles but then the rest of the songs are just fillers, and they need to keep on shocking to stay relevant (that last part doesnt really apply to selena). The one thing all those people have in common is that they sell the same. Compared to someone like taylor who can sell 6 million albums in one year and have the top tour, they are just average auto tuned popstars all in the same class.

          • :)

            Miley writes and co-writes her music.

            Oh, Miley doesn’t lip sync. But you did leave out Beyonce. The queen got caught lip syncing.

          • Godney

            She said she wrote wrecking ball yet she didnt, she said we cant stop was about her friends yet she didnt wrote it.

          • Godney

            Yes, i dont see the bad thing in being a auto tune popstars, of course, i stan by one.
            But all these “SELENA SUCKS SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE” its unnecesary, like if you dont like her just dont listen to her. easy.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            lol , selena is hollywood records most successful act, she brings them the most money, i doubt she will give up music.

          • :)

            Scratching my head. You sure about that?

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            yup she is lol

          • :)

            HWR’s is not a big record label.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            no they arent

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    she looks hot in the pic, and shes more of an actress than she is a singer so thats amazing that she does well in both.shes the only one out of demi, miley and selena who acts still

    • :)

      At least Miley and Demi know what their true talent is, singing. Selena’s career is up in the air.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        at the same time selena could have an acting career which could last her entire life,plus she’s good at it and may win awards one day.selena’s career isnt up in the air.shes 21 set for life and can do whatever she wants.

        • :)

          Actually, I think Selena should go into fashion design!

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            she has a line already, but yes she could do high fashion like the olsen twins

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    dont forget this tour was cut short ;) she would have made alot more but finished it early

    • :)

      Excuses, excuses!!!!!!

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        lol im not a selena stan, i like her and all but I was just stating facts :)

        • :)

          Did I say you were a selena stan, don’t think so. Look at the numbers babe, they don’t lie. This is what happens when you’re fans are still teens.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            whats so bad about 16 million?

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            That’s what I’m thinking, hell I want 16 million myself.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            lol i know right

          • :)

            Remember, you have to pay everyone who’s involved with your tour. Stage, lighting, sound, dancers, band, make-up, costumes and so on. So 16mil ain’t shit!

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            it is alot of money, and she made a good profit, she is already super rich and can live without working for the rest of her life

          • :)

            58 shows performed in 54 cities and only made 16mil. That’s really bad.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            not really, why do you have a vendetta with sel?

          • laura

            she’s kind of right though, 16 million isn’t very much for 58 shows.
            It’s still a lot of money though but just not when you look at it in perspective..

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            I think for selena to even be on the list is good to me and there are some heavey hitters there that she beat like alica keyes, fun ,jay z, macklamore etc.And she is number 61 in North American sales, she never finished her world tour so of course those numbers will be lower

            i understand that these numbers arent the best and i never said they were ,but its not a flop by any means.All i said was her tour was cut so the and 16 million for north amerca wasnt bad. she would have made more than 20 million if the tour would have continued she had a whole continent to go lol

            http://www.pollstarpro.com/files/charts2013/2013YearEndTop200NorthAmericanTours.pdf

          • laura

            Oh I didn’t mean she flopped and it sure is a very good thing for her but I was just saying that 16 million is shit loads of money but if you look at it in perspective it’s not that much.
            About Jay Z and Alicia Keys: they did less shows than her so it’s only normal they didn’t make as much money :)

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            oh i didnt look at the show numbers for them lol , and i didnt mean you said she floped but people are quick to say shes flopping when shes not. she should go back to acting for the time being though lol…

          • Ricardo

            She should end the tour since she’s quite good and her sales are quite good on Latin America (check We Own The Night Tour there) also Australia.. I knew europe would flop, I’m from Spain and the promo here was a mess, only 1 radio promoted the tour, no internet sponsor and nothing, Miley and 1D even have TV sponsor.. Hollywood doesn’t know how to promote tour u.u

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            lol that’s hilarious , her people need to get on that and learn how to promote her sothe sales wont suck.its so awesome that your from spain! do people not like selena in europe/spain lol ?

          • laura

            Nah Selena indeed isn’t very famous in Europe but neither is Taylor. Miley is quite popular though and One Direction as well.
            I guess in Europe we focus more on European artists rather than American ones. But it’s the same way in America, you know, they don’t care too much about European artists either haha

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            Wow im surpised taylor isnt popular there, she is huge here, i had a friend from france who said people didnt like miley but this was before wrecking ball in august ,so i dont know about now.he said they saw her as hannah montanna still.

          • laura

            It’s the country music, it’s something typically American and it isn’t really popular in Europe. Of course there are people who love her but she’s just not that big..
            Oh well, I guess it depends where you live in France though. Because all the French people I love either don’t have an opinion about her or like her haha

          • Guest

            Her album and tour was probably more successful then her acting career lately.

            Her tour made 16 million in sales in the US,none of her movies did.

            I doubt studios are offering her good movie roles.She should go back to TV and try to land a good sitcom role imo.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            your right she isnt bankable by studios yet. thats why she is doing independent movies.indies movies arent with a studio and arent about making money, she knew that when signing on for the indies she did , they are more artist projects.

          • Guest

            You left out the biggest expense of all,paying to rent out the arena.

            Her tour was a huge flop.

          • :)

            I didn’t even think about that. Wow!

  • boystan

    those are good numbers for a disney star that’s not miley

  • boystan

    imo miley’s already doing worse than selena

  • boystan

    miley’s gonna end up performing in front of half empty arenas
    people are not buying tickets

    • :)

      Wrong. Her concerts in the US are more than halfway sold out. Try again.

      • boystan

        her show in la, one of the most famous cities and biggest arenas is still half empty. try again.

        • :)

          Why did you feel the need to mention Miley?

          • boystan

            bc miley and selena used to be best friends after they were on barney and princess protection program together

          • :)

            Sorry, but Miley was never on barney nor princess protection program. lmao.

          • boystan

            yes she was what are you talking about? also camp rock and sonny with a chance.

          • Marina And My Diamonds

            Lmao! ;)

          • :)

            Gotcha, lame brain!

        • Cici

          Yep..& Nashvile & Atlanta still have a shit ton of empy seats lol

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    congrats to taylor for being number one!!!!

  • Guest

    Her tour was a huge flop.Now we know why she canceled it early.

    • Ricardo

      European tour was a flop, she do great on Latin America and Australia, it’s sad that she didn’t continue the tour..

      • Guest

        After paying dancers,stage hands and other tour staff ,transportation and hotels for all her tour staff,insurance,manager fees, renting out arenas for 58 shows and other tour expenses she probably barely broke even or lost money.She did the right thing ending it imo as overseas expenses are more then US expenses.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      omg lol
