Justin Timberlake Likes It On Top

On the morning of his MTV Video Music Awards appearance, Justin Timberlake has hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles with "SexyBack."

After his single became available for paid digital download last Tuesday, it began to look like it would swat Fergie's rear from the top like a fly, as it was the biggest download all week long. Surprisingly, this is only the second time JT has sat at the top of the Hot 100 chart... the first being way back in summer 2000 when *NSync's "It's Gonna Be Me" hit #1. Now, is it me, or is "SexyBack" one of those songs you just wanna hate, but it's so obnoxious you kinda like it after four listens?

Elsewhere in the Top 10, the 10-Legged Ho Machine, aka Danity Kane (or as someone here commented, "Caterpussy") jumps up to #8 with "Show Stopper." Their album debuted at #1 this week. And the new Evanescence song, "Call Me When You're Sober," moves 15 places to #10. That's one dark jam.

Of course, we gotta check in with Snow Patrol. They're like a little pet that ambles along behind you on a long walk. This week "Chasing Cars" finally enters the Top 20 and sits at #18.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "SexyBack" - Justin Timberlake *1 week*
2. "London Bridge" - Fergie
3. "(When You Gonna) Give It Up To Me" - Sean Paul feat. Keyshia Cole
4. "Crazy" - Gnarls Barkley
5. "Buttons" - Pussycat Dolls feat. Snoop Dogg
6. "Promiscuous" - Nelly Furtado feat. Timbaland
7. "Me & U" - Cassie
8. "Show Stopper" - Danity Kane
9. "Sexy Love" - Ne-Yo
10. "Call Me When You're Sober" - Evanescence *sales gainer*

    I'd prefer him on top of me and not on top of the chart.

    Is it me or has his nose gotten bigger?

    I didn't notice till you pointed it out, but it does look like it. Maybe it's trying to catch up to the Trousersnake.
