Peter Andre Is So 2000-And-Late

For about seven months last year I whored myself out by anonymously writing celebrity gossip garbage for the low-rent site Celebuzz. (Hey, I had bills to pay!) One of the few highlights was when I got to crank out posts about Katie Price and her hapless husband, seemingly-washed-up pop star Peter Andre.

Katie was always either schlepping around some club, getting plastic surgery in L.A., doing a book signing in London, or hocking her line of pink equestrian sportswear. And all the while, Peter was either absent or in the background.

So it's no shocker that the couple announced their separation a few months back. But meanwhile, who'd have thunk that Peter would someday manage to score another Top 10 hit? This week, on the U.K. singles chart, "Behind Closed Doors" goes in at #4.

"Behind The Doors"is now his 10th single to make the Top 10 in his home country. Let's chalk it up to pity downloads?

Just above Andre, at #3, comes Calvin Harris' latest single, the superb "Ready For The Weekend." It's a shame it didn't make it to #1. After all, do we really need this much Black Eyed Peas?

Here are the vids for "Behind Closed Doors" and "Ready For The Weekend":



Elsewhere, hoo-rah for Little Boots squeaking up to #10 with "Remedy, and for Lily Allen popping in at #37 with "22" two weeks ahead of its official release date.
