Chart Rigger Turns 4!

Wow—four years. This is like entering a second term in political office. When's the corruption scandal gonna hit?

Anyway, I won't ramble on too much about Chart Rigger's anniversary because—ta dah!—there's a quick, D'luvvly video blog for that purpose:

Wow, the charisma. And appropriately, it's the day Oscar nominations were announced. (Thanks to Lisa Timmons of Socialite Life for camera duty.)

Chart-wise, album sales are in the can, and Lady GaGa spends a third week at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 with "Just Dance." Her far superior second single off The Fame, "Poker Face," climbs up the rear, jumping from #72 to #48 this week.

Really, I just like talking about this broad as an excuse to post her photos, such as this misguided gem of her, pre-stylist, that went up at DListed earlier this week.

Britney Spears' "Womanizer" finally falls out of the Top 10, replaced by her own "Circus," which re-enters after intitially only spending two weeks in the upper tier back in December. Including Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold," that gives Dr. Luke two production credits in the high-up end of the chart.

Elsewhere, Pink officially enters the Top 20—albeit at #20–with "Sober," and Beyoncé enters the Top 40 at #37 with "Diva."

Alright, I'm off to celebrate my blogiversary with a venti hot chocolate at Starbucks. Thanks again for reading this poetry over the years!

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Just Dance" - Lady GaGa feat. Colby O'Donis *3 weeks*
2. "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" - Beyoncé
3. "Heartless" - Kanye West
4. "Live Your Life" - T.I. feat. Rihanna
5. "Love Story" - Taylor Swift
6. "Gives You Hell" - The All-American Rejects
7. "I'm Yours" - Jason Mraz
8. "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry
9. "Let It Rock" - Kevin Rudolf feat. Lil Wayne
10. "Circus" - Britney Spears

    Wow, four years--in the blog world that's got to be like 80 or something. And the inclusion of that photo of Lady GaGa sums up this site so well. You're right about "Poker Face" being better than "Just Dance," too.

    Happy anniversary! Keep on being amazing.
