Lady GaGa: Paparazzi Don't Preach!

Where does the day go, pop kids? I had every intention of doing the weekly chart post earlier this morning, but then one ridiculous thing after another happened, and, well, here we are at 9 p.m.

It's okay, though—there are really only a few things worth mentioning here this week. First up is Lady GaGa, who's "Paparazzi" not only jumps into the Top 40, but the Top 20 also (at #18).

Oh, I know, Madonna fans, I know. But the sooner you realize GaGa is the new Madge, the less painful it'll be. I bet by the end of Lady's co-headlining tour with Kanye West, he'll be opening for her. And I also predict by this time next year, Madonna will be opening for Lady GaGa.

Two other pop jams dip into the Top 40, as well—Kelly Clarkson's "Already Gone," at #35, and Cascada's "Evacuate The Dancefloor," at #39.

Seriously, who would have thought Cascada would manage another U.S. hit? Not that I'm complaining. Shame goes out the window when I readily admit that "Evactuate..." has totally grown on me in the past month or so.

That's it—Natalie Horler is The next Madonna. (After Lady GaGa, of course.)

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "I Gotta Feeling" - The Black Eyed Peas *12 weeks*
2. "Down" - Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne
3. "Party In The U.S.A." - Miley Cyrus
4. "Run This Town" - Jay-Z feat. Rihanna and Kanye West
5. "Use Somebody" - Kings Of Leon
6. "You Belong With Me" - Taylor Swift
7. "Watcha Say" - Jason DeRulo
8. "Obsessed" - Mariah Carey
9. "Hotel Room Service" - Pitbull
10. "Good Girls Go Bad" - Cobra Starship feat. Leighton Meester
