K-Fed flopped and nobody cares about him, his songs were no where near the charts thankfully. Paris flopped too, but even she had somewhat of a hit song. Conclusion: K-Fed was finished before he even started.

Carson Daly did a bit on his talk show where he went shopping for Christmas gifts at the 99 cent store, and in one of the CD bins, he found a copy of K-Fed's CD ;D

I can't even believe it sold 6,000 or whatever, even that is too much. Maybe Kevin bought 6,000 copies for himself.
