Linda Perry might think that Katy Perry's album is crap, but the numbers tell another story. Katy already made chart history by tying Michael Jackson's record of five number one songs from an album. Now it's being reported that while dominating the Hot 100, she also managed to rake in $50 million.
Teenage Dream sold 1.7 million copies and around 20 million singles. In addition to getting at least 15% from album sales, Perry is also making money from extensive touring. Not a bad year for Ms. Perry.
