Christina Aguilera Could Use A Genie In A Bottle Right About Now (And 'Glee' Still Sucks)

The big news on this week's Billboard Hot 100 chart is the massive drop Christina Aguilera's new single "Not Myself Tonight" does. Last week the derivative (yet still catchy) dance-pop jam debuted at a respectable #23, but in just seven days Xtina has fallen to #49 like a toothless whore in her twilight years hoping for one last bounce on the knee pads before throwing herself into the grave. (Hey, don't blame me for writing this stuff—I'm merely a vessel for the poetry of the Chart Gods!)

Maybe the premiere of the "Not Myself Tonight" video tomorrow (where that still up above is from) will salvage things? Who knows. In the meantime, the New Christina Aguilera—aka Lady Gaga—flies up from #28 to #20 with "Alejandro."

As usual, the Glee cast floods the chart this week with songs from the most recent episode—this time the "Power Of Madonna" one. The highest entry is the cover of "Like A Prayer," which has a #27 debut. Over on the Top 200 Albums, Glee: The Music—The Power Of Madonna enters at #1, knocking pint-sized pop munchkin Justin Bieber and his My World 2.0 down to #3.

Yeah, too bad the power of Madonna couldn't save the show from sucking for three weeks in a row. I hate to say it, but it's becoming more and more clear that Glee peaked by its 13th episode last December. Sorry, kids—popularity never lasts forever.

On a final note, La Roux's steady climb seems to have slowed its roll a bit, as "Bulletproof" inches up a mere notch to #35.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Nothin' On You" - B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars *2 weeks*
2. "Rude Boy" - Rihanna
