Can You Believe Goddamn "TiK ToK" Is Still #1 (Or That Shiny Toy Guns Are Still Alive)?

Klassy Ke$ha has now spent eight weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with "TiK ToK," making it the longest stay at #1 for a female solo artist since Beyonce racked up ten weeks with "Irreplaceable" at in late 2006/early 2007. There's really not much more you can say about this broad or this song, so hopefully she has a new schtick/look by the time that "Blah Blah Blah" video is released. Otherwise, thanks for doing a round of shots, baby, but this relationship was never gonna move past the parking lot.

Pink gets a post-Grammy Awards boost, as "Glitter In The Air" debuts this week at #18, while Funhouse jumps up from #61 to #15 on the Top 200 Albums chart.

Meanwhile, back on the Hot 100, The Script finally land "Breakeven" in the Top 40, as the single moves up from #53 to #40. I guess they heard about my offer of a hand down the shorts if they started hustling that song along a bit faster. Don't worry, lads, I always wear ISOTONERs.

Finally, good ol' Shiny Toy Guns debut at #97 with their cover of Peter Schilling's 1983 synth jam "Major Tom (Coming Home)." Was this recording really necessary? Hey, it was used in a car commercial...



Gosh, I remember seeing this group before they had a label deal (and with a different female singer) back in February 2005 at the Viper Room here in Los Angeles. Who knew they'd still be kicking around—and not serving lattes at Starbucks—five years later?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "TiK ToK" - Ke$ha *8 weeks*
2. "Imma Be" - The Black Eyed Peas
3. "Need You Now" - Lady Antebellum
4. "Bedrock" - Young Money feat. Lloyd

8. "How Low" - Ludacris

    8 weeks? For real? :(
    Gaga's Bad Romance is so much more deserving that than piece of rap-talk-singing dolla-sign dirty blonde.
