It's A Lady GaGa World, And She'd Like You To Kindly Just Get Over It

Now, kiddies, I know, I know. Lady GaGa angers some of you. Look, she angers me, too—one week I hear it's GaGa, with two capital Gs, and the next it's only one. Dammit!

At any rate, this week the Lady in question brings her recent European hit, "Paparazzi," over to the Billboard Hot 100, where it debuts at #74. As well, Wale's "Chillin'," which features squealing by Lady GaGa, enters the chart at #99, thereby bumping Whitney Houston's "I Look To You" up to #98.

We previously saw Wale in the Top 10 of the U.K. chart in February, when he featured on that hot piece Daniel Merriweather's single "Change." And as for Whitney, "I Look To You" will likely do the old hooker trawl up the chart next week, now that her full-length album is available and folks are downloading that track and "Million Dollar Bill" like barnyard animals feeding out of Whitney's trough.

What the hell was I talking about? Oh, right—Lady GaGa. She's also still got "LoveGame" and "Poker Face" kicking around the upper half of the chart, at #24 and #41, respectively.

Elsewhere, Mariah Carey's "Obsessed" and Shakira's "She Wolf" are stuck at #11 and #12 yet again. Cascada threatens to have a second U.S. Top 40 hit, as "Evacuate The Dancefloor" moves up from #57 to #47, and Peal Jam debuts at #56 with "The Fixer."


The U.S. Top 10:

1. "I Gotta Feeling" - The Black Eyed Peas *10 weeks*
2. "Down" - Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne
3. "Party In The U.S.A." - Miley Cyrus
4. "Use Somebody" - Kings Of Leon
5. "You Belong With Me" - Taylor Swift
6. "Run This Town" - Jay-Z feat. Rihanna and Kanye West
7. "Knock You Down" - Keri Hilson feat. Kanye West & Ne-Yo
8. "Best I Ever Had" - Drake
9. "Hotel Room Service" - Pitbull
10. "Good Girls Go Bad" - Cobra Starship feat. Leighton Meester

    She Wolf should maul and decapitate Mariah if there is any justice.

    Woo Hoo.. Jay Sean!
    I much prefer the rapless version of that song.
    Lil Wayne is kinda annoying. Urgh.

    Must you? (re: LAdy Cuckoo - though i'm really just going to have to accept it aren't I?)

    I would like Whitney and Shakira to get a bit higher than their current positions. Ooo the word verification is erectiion! I wonder what the extra I does?!

    It's hardly a GaGa world if she's debuting at 74. I think she needs to get over herself.

    where did Radar come in this week D-Luv?

  • At 9:58 AM, Blogger D'luv said…

    Anonymous, sadly Britney's fallen off the, uh, radar, from #88 to #97.

    Catty, or up herself.

    Paul, I think it makes you enter Lady GaGa.

    Joshua, because people can't count any higher than that.

    rcLoy, yeah, he sounds like Anthony Michael Hall when he's at the black jazz club in Weird Science.

    XO, maul my body—oh oh! Oh oh!—maul my body...

    "Obsessed" is so tragic; I am shocked that it even made it up that far.

    My theory is that Paul secretly loves Gaga and that he is totally projecting his feelings into blog hate. muahahahaha
