Take That's Howard Donald In Hot Water While 'Progress' Sets Sales Record

My boyfriend—well, one of them—Howard Donald of Take That is involved in some nasty sex drama, which, sadly, doesn't involve me. You can read about that trash here.

Meanwhile, the That's new album Progress is flying off shelves across the pond. The Guardian reports that it sold 235,000 copies on Monday alone, and may go on to beat Oasis' one-week sales record of 696,000 with Be Here Now back in 1997.

Until then, Take That still have the honor of what the Official UK Charts Company has labeled the "fastest-selling album of the century." (The century being only a mere 10 years in so far, of course.)
