Lady GaGa: 4, Madonna: 0

Lady GaGa covers Rolling Stone's new issue, and the mag labels her "the defining pop star of the year." In other words, rejoice, children—we'll never have to worry about seeing Madonna's rotting carcass on the cover of that rag again!

Now, in case you're wondering about the scoring in the title this post, I'm going by Lady GaGa's three major hits this year. Her latest, "LoveGame," climbs up five positions to #22 this week on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. I'm also throwing in the magazine cover.

There's a bunch of other garbage going on, like a combo of nine tracks debuting between American Idol's Kris Allen and Adam Lambert—including Kris' official winner's song "No Boundaries" at #11. Shit song, hot mouth.

Cathy Dennis co-wrote that atrocity, which gives her two American hits in the past year, including Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl."

And speaking of the latter broad, her latest "Waking Up In Vegas" moves up to #10, giving her a third U.S. Top 10 single. Meanwhile, Rob Thomas debuts waaay down at #42 with brand new song "Her Diamonds."

Close, but no cigar, dude. But give Madge a kiss for us!
