    Who even knew who she was before she went on Howard's show, two short weeks later she's the #1 artist in the country.

    Singer-songwriter Sia nabs her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 — and her best sales week ever — as "1000 Forms of Fear" debuts atop the list. The new album, released on Monkey Puzzle through RCA Records, sold 52,000 copies in the week ending July 13, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    The album was released Tuesday, July 8.

    You sound pretty excited. I'll bet Wiggy is going to do horrible things to you tonight. Congratulations!

    Right. Because all the teenage girls who listen to this pop garbage also listen to what a 60 year old man says is good, or watch shitty AGT or listen to satellite radio talk shows.

    What does it say about the power of Stern when these two mouth breathing water heads have to team up to even begin to mount an offensive against the site. If I was Stern I would not have an ounce of confidence knowing these two down syndrome sufferers were my field marshals. Dumb and the Fake Lawyer.

    The promotion of the album effectively launched with her uniquely photographed Billboard magazine cover story last year. She was pictured on the Nov. 2 cover with a bag over her head that read, in part, "This artist is responsible for over 12 million track sales … and doesn't want to be famous." [12 million listeners - she doesn't want to be famous - sounds familiar]

    Sia took a rather unconventional route to promoting her album. She opted not to show her face during TV performances of the album's single "Chandelier," and didn’t pose for traditional photo shoots. Instead, she performed on TV with her back to the camera while a dancer (or dancers) interpreted the song — as seen recently on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "Late Night With Seth Meyers" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live! [ No mention of THSS?]


    One last note on "1000 Forms of Fear": It logs the lowest sales figure for a No. 1 album in nearly two years. It's the smallest since the Aug. 11, 2012 chart, when Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" led the list with 48,000. [ lowest sales for a #1 show]


    Yep Full Stern Show Effect ! Everybody steals from me, I invented that right Robin? Thanks for posting the link, I really didn't care enough to waste time looking for it.

    It sure worked for Lady Gaga, didn't it?

    And what are you doing still at work? Is Buchwalk paying you overtime today since you were off Friday?

    Did you all know that every polar bear in the entire world is afraid of Howard Stern?

    It's true.

    You cant! why, because they are all afraid of him.

    10000% proof #SternEffect

    The only reason Weird Al is #3 is because so many people confuse him for Howard. Just like what happened with the Ramones.
