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!
