Lady Gaga Lands Third U.K. #1 As The Aging Boy Bands Have A Sword Fight On The Album Chart

Hot. I'd been waiting for a chance to use this Lady Gaga pic. I just didn't think the opportunity would present itself so quickly. "Bad Romance" has slithered its way up to the top of the U.K. chart, giving the singer her third British #1 single. And, this feat also just happened to occur the same week Gaga flew over to meet and perform for Queen Elizabeth II. Coincidence?

The Saturdays debut way down at #35 with "Ego," the floundering girl group's second single off Wordshaker. You know, I really thought this was gonna be the album able to break these broads wide open—well, until I heard it, that is. Now the whole LP just smacks of sounding like Jordin Sparks leftovers. Pretty sad, since Chasing Lights was still on heavy rotation in the house D'luv for a good seven or eight months after its release last fall.

"Ego" is officially released on January 3, and if anything it at least gives the Saturdays their seventh Top 20 chart hit in the U.K.

Over on the Brit album chart, it's a boy band sausage fest in the Top 10 as Westlife debut at #2 with Where We Are, Take That enter at #3 with The Greatest Day—Take That Present: The Circus Live and JLS bring up all eight of their rears at #4 with their self-titled album in its fourth week.

Former Take That member Robbie Williams hangs in at #10 with Reality Killed The Video Star. See that—it's almost as if Rudebox never happened.

As Paul points out, this was indeed info dealing with last week's album chart—which goes to show I pay fuck all attention to Westlife.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga *1 week*
2. "BBC Children In Need Medley" - Peter Kay
3. "Russian Roulette" - Rihanna
4. "Meet Me Halfway" - The Black Eyed Peas
5. "TiK ToK" - Ke$ha
6. "Morning After Dark" - Timbaland ft. Nelly Furtado & SoShy
7. "Whatcha Say" - Jason Derulo
8. "Doesn't Mean Anything" - Alicia Keys
9. "Let The Bass Kick In Miami Girl" - Chuckie & LMFAO *new*
10. "Look For Me" - Chipmunk

    it's no surprise that Cuckoo gets another number one after her batty x factor performance. She'll enjoy a week there before the dirgey Climb knocks her off! Nice to see Robbie rocket up with You Know Me - hopefully that will go top ten next week! (it's official release date)... And of course nice to see the christmas faves coming back including Mariah and The Pogues!!

    The album chart - are you reading last weeks? Gaga is back up to two, and TT and Westlife both fell 5 places from their debuts last week, though JLS held on and still outsell the X Factor winner Alexandra! I'm pleased that Will YOung is steadily selling with his Hits album!!

    Right you are, Pablo! F-ing BBC has the December 13 date but they didn't update the damn chart.

    Yes... What happened with the Saturdays' sophomore album, anyway? Can we get on top of this story and find out how it all went so pear-shaped after that amazing kick-off album? :o\
