Lady Gaga gets major album sales (and approval from Sarah Jessica Parker)
In addition to countless stunt performances and promotional appearances in support of the record, her Ladyship's domination was largely due to an Amazon.com promotion that sold the entire album for just 99 cents.
"Anytime we can get people to purchase music legally, it's a good thing," Gaga's manager said in correspondence about "Born This Way's" success.
Another metric for Gaga doing good was her recent compliment from fashion plate Sarah Jessica Parker. The "Sex and the City" star, a successful fragrance and clothing designer in her own right, praised the singer.
She's "in a league of her own. I admire her aesthetic choices," Parker recently told MTV News. "I think we have very different silhouettes that we choose. I don’t mean that in a judgmental way. I mean that she is an extraordinary and singular and unique person."
