And the album "Pop Art" leads U.S. sales last November which it sold 258 thousand copies in the first week of it.
And songs of pop singer put her in blacklist in China since 2011, after the Chinese Ministry of Culture considered her work leads to "create confusion in the order of the online music market, and damage to cultural security in the country."
