There's No Stopping The Ke$ha And Lady Gaga Parade Of Singles

With the exception of Young Money getting bumped down from #9 to #10 by Jason Derulo, the rest of the Top 10 of this week's Billboard Hot 100 is the same as last—i.e. total snooze village.

Meanwhile, never underestimate the power of American Idol. After performing on last week's results show, Usher's "OMG" debuts at #14, giving him not only two songs in the Top 40 ("Hey Daddy" is at #25), but his highest charting single since that abomination of sound "Love In This Club" went to #1 two years ago. Likewise, Diddy and his new hooker troupe Dirty Money, who also performed on the same episode of Idol (it was soul week, y'all—and who's got more soul than Diddy, after all?), enter the chart at #34 with "Hello Good Morning."

Elsewhere, New Queen Of Soul Ke$ha has moved on since "Blah Blah Blah" was never able to hop back in the Top 10 again after its initial debut at #7 back in January. Her third single, "Your Love Is My Drug," jumps from #57 to #32 this week, almost eclipsing the song's #27 peak from when it also debuted back when Ke$ha's Animal album was first made available digitally. It's time to hop out of the toilet, doll—you have another hit!

On a final note, La Roux are up four positions to #57 with "Bulletproof"—and I love how my April Fool's Day joke about the song jumping up to #11 last week got reported as fact in some sectors. Ahem! Also, Lady Gaga debuts at #72 with "Alejandro"—my favorite jam off The Fame Monster (next to "Monster"), and a far better single choice than "Telephone."

The U.S. Top 10:

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

    Was Diddy's hooker troupe two thirds of girband Total?

    He was the first black man I ever heard call another man 'baby' which did things to me. When Randy Jackson did it the novelty wore off.

    I'm curious to see how 'Alejandro' does..it's my fav also - the best Ace of Base song they never recorded.

    I do quite enjoy AleJandro. It's quite more-ish... god knows what the video will be like. Probably men in gimp masks and ball gags!

    I'm still rooting for La Roux. They need to be the new decade's first one-hit wonder!
