Official results from Billboard:
Paris Hilton's "Paris" becomes the highest debut for a new solo female pop artist this year with a No. 6 entry. The Warner Bros. set moved 77,000 units this week; it features the top 20 Hot 100 hit "Stars Are Blind."
She was beat by winners of MTV's "Making the Band 3" Danity Kane (234,000); the new OutKast (196,000); Christina Aguilera (135,000); a Spanish-language album (87,000); and a Disney soundtrack (81,000).

I'm sure plenty of musicians here would love to "tank" at "only" 75,000 sold in one week.
Doesn't the Hilton family have, like, hundreds of millions of dollars? I'm theorizing she bought them all herself.

Dude, in a perfect world, Taro Sound <i>would</i> go platinum. Paris Hilton would go back to making pornography, Lindsay Lohan would stick to making bad movies, and Mariah Carey's albums would barely crack 1,000 sales per album.

Or Lohan and Mariah would forego movies/music and join Hilton in the porno biz. Preferably the same film.

There would be a lot better chance of me buying that than any of their albums, that's for sure.
