Kelly Clarkson made history yesterday when her hit “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” became the best-selling single by an American Idol singer of all time. “Stronger” has sold 3.51 million singles as of yesterday, beating out Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” by just 1,000 copies. “Stronger” also stayed on top of The Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, making it Clarkson’s longest-running number 1 song. While this battle goes to Clarkson, Underwood is still ahead in total domestic album sales. Underwood has sold over 13 million albums to date, while Clarkson is lacking by about 1.5 million album sales.
The Amazing Spider-Man also made history by setting the Tuesday box office record with $35 million in sales. The film made $7.5 million in Monday midnight earnings alone. This eclipses the $27.9 million made on a Tuesday by Transformers in 2007. Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, who are now a real-life couple. Some critics estimate that the movie could earn anywhere between $120 million and $140 million through its first weekend.
