ADELE BREAKS FIRST-WEEK SALES RECORD
NEW YORK (AP) -- The record held by `N Sync has just gone down. `N Sync's "No Strings Attached" album held the all-time record for most sales in a week with 2.416 million in March 2000. Adele's "25" has sold 2.433 million in four days, according to Nielsen Music. Final sales numbers for the week will be revealed on Sunday. `N Sync singer JC Chasez (shah-ZAY') tells Billboard magazine it was flattering to hold the record but the success of "25" "proves that emotion and art are alive and well in music today." Bandmate Joey Fatone says, "I even bought the damn album."

RINGO STARR IS SELLING COPY NUMBER 1 OF THE WHITE ALBUM
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The original copies of The Beatles' White Album have numbers on the covers indicating in what order in the printing process those copies were made. It's commonly known that The Beatles kept numbers 1 through 4, but many people don't know that Ringo Starr has copy number 1 -- and now he's selling it. Julien's Auctions says Starr kept it in a London bank vault for 35 years. In spite of that, it's not quite in mint condition because a corner has a slight fold. It's expected to sell for between $40,000 and $60,000 by the time the auction ends December 3.

GWEN STEFANI FELT EVERY EYE WHEN PERFORMING AT THE AMAS
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Gwen Stefani says she thought her feet were going to shake off while performing "Used To Love You" at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says it was not nerves as much as she felt exposed. Stefani promises she won't have an album full of downer songs as she splits from Gavin Rossdale. She says she wrote the album when she was mad, but then she cycled through other emotions as well. Stefani says she is not finished writing and she's in "a happy spot" now.

ERYKAH BADU SHOWS ANOTHER SIDE
NEW YORK (AP) -- Erykah Badu agreed to host the Soul Train Awards earlier this month so that people would get to know her creativity. Badu says she's known for singing but no one knows she writes and directs her own videos, creates her own artwork or chooses her own clothes. Badu says she wrote material for the show that showcased her sense of humor, which she describes as "pretty unique and self-serving." She says now is a good time to start exposing her art to the air. Badu will put out a mixtape on Friday called "BUT YOU CAINT USE MY PHONE."
