Bruno Mars And Far*East Movement Get The Charts Completely Wasted

So we have a new #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week in the form of "Just The Way You Are," the first official single by Bruno Mars. Of course, Bruno's celebrating will be dampened by the fact that he got busted for carrying cocaine around last weekend in Las Vegas. (Did he learn nothing from wise sage/music legend Paris Hilton?)

And then at #10 we have the sizzurp-slurping Far*East Movement, whose "Like A G6" makes me feel like drowning myself in a tub full of grain alcohol. Hey, kids—getting fucked up is fun! And so is getting arrested! Paaaaaaaarty!

Moving on to classier trash, two singles jump 72 positions this week—Rihanna's "Only Girl (In The World)" (up from #75 to #3) and Florence + The Machine's "Dog Days Are Over" (#93 to #21). RiRi's jam benefits from being added to iTunes last week, while Flo performed on the MTV VMAs two Sundays ago.

FATM's LP Lungs also makes an impressive leap, from #44 to #14, on the Top 200 album chart. Not faring as well is Robyn's Body Talk Pt. 2, which drops from last week's debut position of #41 to #200. Ouch. At least Brandon Flowers managed a #8 debut with solo album Flamingo. (Two weeks ago he landed the album at #1 in the UK.)

And in slightly Sophie Ellis-Bextor-related news, Armin Van Buuren's Mirage, which contains their collaboration "Not Giving Up On Love," debuts at #148. I'm playing their jam this very moment in celebration of this momentous triumph.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Just The Way You Are" - Bruno Mars" *1 week*
2. "Love The Way You Lie" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
3. "Only Girl (In The World)" - Rihanna
4. "Teenage Dream" - Katy Perry
5. "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love" - Usher feat. Pitbull
6. "Dynamite" - Taio Cruz
7. "I Like It" - Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull
8. "Just A Dream" - Nelly
9. "Club Can't Handle Me" - Flo Rida feat. David Guetta
10. "Like A G6" - Far*East Movement
