That isn't actually proof. Maybe she did a hundred out of 10,000 that were mailed out. We'll never know. And untrue, not all artists do it for the charts. I have met plenty of musicians who do it because they respect their fans and it is just a little way to give something back, signing CDs or records bought decades ago. Sure this bubble gum stuff like Billie, Katy Perry, Demi, etc do it for the charts because all they care about is staying in the limelight and on top of the charts.
Agreed. I preface it by saying I was dumb enough to buy one, but I don't take that video as proof. It's somewhat proof she painted some... but for all you know I could have been paid by Warner to paint the rest of them and I signed a confidentiality agreement that I can't tell you. How would you know? Maybe Billie doesn't even know if they did do that.
Record companies have been considered shady, greedy businesses since forever.
"Record companies have been considered shady, greedy businesses since forever. " - This is totally the truth!
The painted album was cheaper than the regular CD. Whether it’s a good idea or not, it’s still cheaper. Point blank period.
I agree, it is worth less.
For a 15 year old fan who can’t afford the $20 album, it’s perfect. Other than that, for collectors it’s worthless.
You guys crack me up. Nobody complained when she did the exact same thing to a more limited LP that now sells for over 2k. And this is still worth more than a my John Mayer signed cd i got last week. So for $10 I love mine.
Out of curiosity... did anyone get anything cool or different on theirs besides just the white paint drops? I remember on her first album she randomly put signed posters in the target exclusive cds. So I wondered if she'd do any random cool stuff on any of them. Looked like she may have walked on some in the video might get a Gucci shoe print haha.
She sent signed CDs to random indie stores apparently like Taylor Swift did
Got 2 in, absolutely nothing on them at all. Not expensive, but I didn't want regular CDs. These are being returned.
Just to make sure, you looked in the pocket that holds the CD and it didnt have the art card inside next to it?
I'm glad I posted because of helpful folks like you.
You're right, I thought it was the actual CD, there are majorly covered with white paint covers. Many thanks.
