"Rude Boy" Gets It Up And Lifts Rihanna To #1

Congrats to Rihanna, who manages to land a #1 hit off her depressing collection of torture jams Rated R. "Rude Boy" truly deserves the honor, and now marks her sixth overall chart-topping single (including T.I.'s "Live Your Life"). Now, fuck off with that album, Ri Ri, and come back with something classier and upbeat.

Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" finally jumps into the Top 10 (at #9)—no doubt aided by the premiere of the lez-tastic prison porn music video—in its 16th week on the Billboard Hot 100. This gives Gaga her sixth Top 10 single, and leaves Beyonce and Rihanna tied for having the most Top 10 hits for a female artist (14) since the year 2000.

Elsewhere, Timbaland and Justin Timberlake's "Carry Out" is up to #11, The Script climb two positions to #17 with "Breakeven," Adam Lambert is at #22 with "Whataya Want From Me" and Avril Lavigne is stuck at #71 for a second week with "Alice."

La Roux, in the meantime, jump from #92 to #80 with "Bulletproof." Here they are from their appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this week:



On a final note, "We Are The World 25" has dropped 30 positions to #96 in only its fifth week on the chart. Yay, charity!

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Rude Boy" - Rihanna *1 week*
2. "Need You Now" - Lady Antebellum
3. "Break Your Heart" - Taio Cruz feat. Ludacris
4. "Imma Be" - The Black Eyed Peas
5. "Nothin' On You" - B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars
6. "Hey, Soul Sister" - Train
7. "Bedrock" - Young Money feat. Lloyd
8. "TiK ToK" - Ke$ha
9. "Telephone" - Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce
10. "In My Head" - Jason Derulo

    Go Gaga & Honey Bee! Those bitches left it a bit late but it's nice to see them snag a top 10 hit at least.

    I would've expected a bit better after all the "Telephone" hoopla. Oh well, what do I know, I'm still listening to Stacey Q's latest batch of torture jamz and calling it love.

    PS I will bonk on the head any queen still trying to make "Kill a cow, eat a burger" happen a la "where's the beef" or some shit. Get the eff outta my life!
