Really, this is more about the mess that is today's music industry. The debut solo album by Joe Jonas sold just 18,000 copies in its first week. Amazingly weak.
Yet that was good enough to be number 15 on the Billboard 200 top albums chart. 15. That's practically a top-10 debut, which used to be a big deal!
I guarantee that if Joe Jonas announced that he's gay (and I'm not saying he is or isn't because I have no idea) he'd have sold a lot more albums. A lot more.
Oh, all right, you talked me into it. Here's Joe and Nick on the beach, and Nick in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform showing off his best asset.
