Katy Perry's #1, Kylie Minogue Hangs In, Scissor Sisters Do So-So And Kelly Rowland Rises
Aphrodite by appearing on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on, well, Friday, and surprising the crowd at Glastonbury yesterday by performing with Scissor Sisters. She needs to fly back to her homeland, though—"All The Lovers" debuted at #14 in Australia (betraying HATERS!!) last week and has now dropped to #22 there.
are completely boring—causing one Scissters stan to comment, "You are about as removed from the creative process as Jake Shears is removed the world of cynical, worthless 'journalism' that owes more to the facetious tones of VH1 than anything else"—it seems as if the bulk of the United Kingdom, at least, concurs.
Again, that's not me hating. I'm a fan of the group. I've gone out to see them live three times. And I'm sure "Fire With Fire" would have made a quite luvvly fourth single. But as far as being the first single off their first album in four years, it's painfully dull.
"Commander." I'm chalking this feat up to her recent amazing interaction with YouTube phenom PhatGayKid (who, mind you, has become a sensation after only being online since effing April!) on The Graham Norton Show.
Priceless. And we'll end with Robyn, whose "Dancing On My Own" suffers a drop from #8 to #16. But at least that's better than Christina Aguilera, who's Bionic has dropped out of the Top 40 of the UK album chart entirely after a mere two weeks.
