Lady GaGa And Madonna Scissor On 'SNL'

Lady GaGa proved last night her acting talent is nearly as monumental as Madonna's when the two squared off on SNL skit "Deep House Dish."

The comic timing was uncanny. I don't think I've seen a stage performance on this level since 6th grade, when my class butchered charmed the student body with a heartwarming rendition of "Hands Across America" in our year-end variety assembly.

Brava, ladies. Brava!

Meanwhile, on the U.K. album chart this week, Madonna's Celebration hits collection is bumped down from #1 to #2 by the latest from Paramore. The title track is down to #14 on the singles chart.

Elsewhere, Aussie band Temper Trap see their jam "Sweet Disposition" land at #7 on the U.K. singles chart. The song appears in 500 Days Of Summer, which is probably my favorite flick of recent months. (See it!)

And finally, after "Bulletproof" hit #1, La Roux have to be a tad disappointed that the somewhat maligned follow-up, "I'm Not Your Toy," only manages to amble up to #27 after its official release.

Maybe everyone's already bought the album at this point?
