HOW COULD SHE DO THIS TO ME?! I CAN'T EVEN. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY COPIES OF 21 HAVE BEEN PURCHASED SINCE IT WAS RELEASED IN 2011? 30 MILLION. OR, IN TODAY'S TERMS, BASICALLY A BAZILLION! AND AT LEAST A MILLION OF THOSE WERE ME, PROBABLY. AND HOW DOES SHE REPAY ME? BY HOLDING OUT FOR ANOTHER YEAR? SHE'S RICHER THAN GOD AND I'M DYING OF THIRST! THAT'S IT, I'M DONE.
But, this news did come from XL Recordings' annual financial report, which is pretty official. You can lie to fans, but you can't lie to investors. SIGH. Her tweet teasing the album was probably premature. What will I even do with myself?? Sit around balling to Sam Smith for the rest of the year??? :'-(
