Beyoncé Is...Annoying

If you were a boy, I'd kick you in the nuts for being such a dumbass and calling your album I Am...Sasha Fierce, stripper.

That said, "If I Were A Boy" is kind of a groovy slow jam, and seeing it jump from #68 to #3 on Billboard's Hot 100 makes me...well, okay, there's really nothing else to mention this week—other than Adele's "Chasing Pavements" debuting at #82—so yay, Beyoncé, etc.

Ultimately, it'll be interesting to see how her upcoming double album performs in these times when albums are by and large being met with disappointing returns. Will she be like Alicia Keys last year this time—huge lead single, decent sales during the holidays, then a complete disappearing act?

Fingers crossed?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Whatever You Like" - T.I. *7 weeks*
2. "Live Your Life" - T.I. feat. Rihanna *airplay gainer*
3. "If I Were A Boy" - Beyoncé
4. "So What" - Pink
5. "Womanizer" - Britney Spears
6. "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry
7. "Let It Rock'" - Kevin Rudolf feat. Lil Wayne
8. "Miss Independent" - Ne-Yo
9. "Disturbia" - Rihanna
10. "I'm Yours'" - Jason Mraz *sales gainer*

    But Mr A-Z winkles his way to number ten! HURRAH (Even if the song has been around for ever!)

    John, sleep well, my child... here, this hemlock will help...

    Pablo, 'winkles his way...' Boy, you're gettin' me frothy!

    Moog, I tried, but it bounced off Mariah's thigh.
