After last week's strong sales debut, Lady Gaga's album "Born This Way" has seen a sharp decrease in sales.
The superstar's record sold more than a million copies in its first week, but for week two only 174,000 were sold, according to Billboard.
Of course, Lady Gaga's album was on sale for just 99 cents not once but twice after its May 23 release thanks to Amazon, which was offering "Born This Way" at the deep discount along with storage space for the Amazon cloud player service.
Neil Patrick Harris won an Emmy after hosting the 63rd annual Tony Awards, and now that he’s back for round two he’s got his game plan all worked out.
The key to doing an award-worthy hosting job, he says, is to stay more or less sober, and stay out of the way.

After launching into an anti-circumcision discussion on Twitter, Russell Crowe has offered a mea culpa.
The Oscar winner found himself in a heated exchange with his followers on Thursday after he tweeted, "Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature?” in response to a follower who seemed to be asking for his opinion on the subject. "My son is due soon," the Twitter user, picknic11, wrote. "Do you think I should get him circumstanced?'
She later clarified that it was a joke. "So, um, my little lame joke to Russell Crowe seems to have blown up a bit," the user wrote. "For the record, I was not asking Russell for parenting advice, I was making A JOKE. A joke about one word that sounded a bit like another."
CNN has confirmed teen star Selena Gomez has been hospitalized, although the reason is currently unknown.
According to TMZ, Gomez, 18, was rushed to the hospital following her appearance on "The Tonight Show" Thursday. The website, citing unnamed sources, says she was feeling “horrible” Thursday night both during and after the show. The Disney star was reportedly complaining of nausea and a severe headache.
Her rep tells CNN, "Last night after Selena's appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ she wasn't feeling well and was taken to the hospital. She is currently undergoing routine tests."
Jennifer Hudson was all smiles in the photo above during her performance at ABC's "Good Morning America Summer Concert Series" on Friday, but that soon changed.
A rep for the Academy Award-winning singer confirmed that Hudson fell ill and was taken to a New York City hospital.
“After performing on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier today, Jennifer Hudson went to the hospital due to severe abdominal pains," the rep said in a statement. "She was treated for food poisoning and released.”
Hudson performed in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield for "GMA" before she got sick, but a second performance slated for CBS' "Early Show" had to be canceled. The newly svelte Hudson has been promoting her new album, "I Remember Me" which features the debut single "Where You At."
Thursday night's episode of "So You Think You Can Dance" revealed this season's top 20 (and not a top 11, thankfully) in a different way, combining the "big reveal" episode with the "showcasing the styles of the top 20" episode into one, and I think it really worked.
This year's finalists were announced in groups based on their styles, so first up were some contemporary dancers, who performed a Stacey Tookey routine:
