Kesha Is A Kla$$ Act

When Kesha first arrived while screeching on Flo Rida's overplayed "Right Round" earlier this year, I posted 10 reasons why we need to love her after noting:
"I sort of hypothesized that Kesha (or Ke$ha, if you're cla$$y) is probably some 400 lb. housewife who occasionally comes into the studio to mop up after hours, who Dr. Luke grabbed and asked to warble the chorus."
And, who knows? That may still be true! But in any event, Kesha's Dr. Luke-produced solo jam "TiK ToK" has leapt like an acrobatic, spring-footed stripper into the Top 10 (at #10). Of course, getting played on Project Runway and The Hills probably helped the cause, while also answering the question: Is anyone still actually watching those shows?

Oh, yeah—and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys jointly nab their fourth #1 singles with "Empire State Of Mind."

Over on the Top 200 Albums chart, Britney Spears' The Singles Collection debuts at #22—much lower than the #7 position Madonna's Celebration hits set entered at. And look where that one's flizz-opped to after only seven weeks—all the way down to #114.

Holida-ay....Chk-chk. BLAMMM!
