Singer Kelly Clarkson’s endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Twitter Thursday cost her some long-time fans but those new ones are pushing her higher in the charts.
In an apparent shedding of skin, perhaps of even those who already had her album, Ms Clarkson’s loss of previous devotees gained her new ones in Dr Paul supporters pushing her album Stronger to number 14 on Amazon.com’s best selling list within 24 hours.
By Friday it was at 13, up 28 spots from her former rank at number 41.
‘I can’t recall ever hearing Miss / Mrs Clarkson’s music before but I support her in an obvious assault on her character by the Media for expressing her beliefs to her fans,’ one Amazon.com customer commented in a growing forum of mixed Dr Paul and now Ms Clarkson fans storming the album’s page.
Another customer wrote that they just bought two just to show their thanks to her.
‘Our goal is to put Miss Clarkson at #1 in sales as a show of our love for her taking a stand and not letting ANYONE sway her love of Ron Paul!’ a third customer wrote.
