It'd Be Really Sad If Taylor Swift Dropped Into A Bottomless Abyss Of Horror

Ah, Taylor Swift. You won all those Grammys, but this week your soundtrack tune "Today Was A Fairytale" falls from #2 to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100. That's it—drop, bitch. Drop into a well, where that soggy broad from The Ring is waiting to take your damn guitar and bash you over the head with it for releasing the same goddamn song over and over again. And fuck Valentine's Day!!!! Expecting innocent people to plunk down cash for a movie that stars Taylor Swift and Ashton Kutcher is like asking them to chug a bucket of battery acid.

That little Canadian mop top Justin Bieber also plummets, from #5 to #25, with "Baby."

And now, onward to charity! Justin Timberlake, Matt Morris and Charlie Sexton's take on "Hallelujah," from the Hope For Haiti Now telethon, jumps up from #48 to #13. Just above, JT and Timbaland's "Carry Out" is at #11.

But coming back to water-logged women, Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" moves up one to #19, while Adam Lambert scrapes up to #35 with "Whataya Want From Me."

So, it's been a few weeks since we checked in with The Script. Because quite frankly, the Irish lads were simply taking too long to climb the chart—and they don't get the d'luvvin' unless they work for it. But, lo and behold! In the single's ninth week on the chart, "Breakeven" moves up to #53. That at least gets them a hand down the shorts. For, like, a minute.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "TiK ToK" - Ke$ha *7 weeks*
2. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga
3. "Bedrock" - Young Money feat. Lloyd
4. "Imma Be" - The Black Eyed Peas
5. "Sexy Chick" - David Guetta feat. Akon
6. "How Low" - Ludacris
7. "Replay" - Iyaz
8. "Need You Now" - Lady Antebellum
9. "Hey, Soul Sister" - Train
10. "Hard" - Rihanna feat. Jeezy

    I kind of love "Need You Now" -- mainly b/c I want to do the naughtiest of naughty things to that bearded cutie from Lady Antebellum...how many chart lives is that song going to have, though? Didn't it already go top 10 back in the fall?

    I hate her. With a passion. Her music sucks, her voice sucks, her whole "I'm so sincere and nice" act sucks.

    Taylor is a talented and attractive woman, but its hard to turn on the radio without hearing one of her songs. I think the general public has been over-saturated and it would probably be wise to pull back a little bit.

    Shaun, I have to really sit down and listen to that one. I thought it was OK at the Grammys, but they had the thankless task of following Pink and Black Eyed Peas...

    Anonymous, I'm just kinda over her. She needs to go away, come back in three years, flop, then just start touring county fairs.

    Austin Rivers, exactly...pull back and do porn.
