Justin Bieber's Hair Makes Me Want To Go Into The Woods And Start Shooting Things

So the week Owl City tops the U.K. chart with "Fireflies" is the same one the chipper synth jam finally drops out of the Top 10 in the U.S. "Fireflies," which hit #1 here three months ago, and Ludacris' "Low" say adios and make room for two singles that debut in the upper tenth of the Billboard Hot 100 this week—Taylor Swift's Valentine's Day soundtrack song "Today Was a Fairytale," and Justin Bieber's "Baby."

Don't you just wanna take that Bieber kid's hair and Swiffer your kitchen floor with it?

The Hope For Haiti Now compilation sold 171,000 copies on iTunes between Saturday and Sunday alone, and thus tops the Billboard Top 200 Albums this week. This marks the first time a digital-only album has reached #1. And from it comes Justin Timberlake, Matt Morris and Charlie Sexton's cover of "Hallelujah," which debuts on the Hot 100 Singles at #48.

Fizzy Pop Paul has a full assessment of Matt Morris' album up today. And in case you're one of the four people in existence who've yet to see this...

Further up the chart, Timbaland and Timberlake's "Carry Out" climbs up from #32 to #14. Meanwhile, another duet, Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone," stays lodged at #20. They're both scheduled to shoot for the video the song today. Let's pray for scissoring.

On a final note, Adam Lambert finally scores a Top 40 single as "Whataya Want From Me" jumps 18 positions to #37. Meanwhile, his American Idol pal Kris Allen drops one spot to #26 with "Live Like We're Dying," one of Chart Rigger's Worst Singles Of 2009. Again, a prayer for scissoring, children.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "TiK ToK" - Ke$ha *6 weeks*
2. "Today Was A Fairytale" - Taylor Swift *new*
3. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga
4. "Bedrock" - Young Money feat. Lloyd
5. "Baby" - Justin Bieber feat. Ludacris *new*
6. "Replay" - Iyaz
7. "Sexy Chick" - David Guetta feat. Akon
8. "Empire State Of Mind" - Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys
9. "Hard" - Rihanna feat. Jeezy
10. "Hey, Soul Sister" - Train

    Is anyone else surprised and slightly disturbed to see Train bounce into the Top 10? I saw that on iTunes and seriously thought it was a mistake.

    Yes, Mel...I flagged that issue last week...I share your concern, and I'm really confused....that is a really really annoying song...no accounting for taste...

    Who the f$#@ is this Bieber kid? It's like the black hole of teendom just vomits up a new one every month, each less appealing and less charismatic than the one before...pretty sad when you long for the days of Hanson! I heard one of this kid's songs on the radio the other day...he was on about touching a girl or something, but he sounded like an 11-year-old girl himself...rock on with yo bad self, gangsta...tell the Jonas Brothers I said "hi."

    You two, it seriously didn't hit me till today that Train are the ones who sing that fucking "Drops Of Jupiter" trash.

    Yep, and the equally atrocious "Meet Virginia"...I saw them once at a festival...lead singer looks even more like Skeletor in person!

    Shaun, wow, I just looked this up and it's apparently their first charting single (Hot 100) since 2004. Sometimes heaven does answer our prayers.

    what the fuck is a Justin Bieber? How did he become so popular? I just don't get it - he's like an American Eoghann Quigg (google crap x factor contestants and he should be up first!)

    Paul, don't blame us! Bieber is Canadian!!

    As a hair style technique, hair wrapping and braiding go hand in hand. To wrap your hair, you will need to take small parts of hair and make small braid all the way down the hair.

    13-14 year olf girls go crazy for him. They must be buying a few of his singles. You can understand them. They are moving onto boys from teddy bears.
