US Chart Roundup: It's Another Top 10 Hit For Pink And Max Martin

Well, Pink might be preggers, but that isn't keeping pop's toughest broad from fighting her way up the charts. "Fuckin' Perfect" becomes her 11th Top 10 hit in the U.S. this week (not counting the atrocity that was "We Are The World 25") as it jumps nine positions to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's also her fifth Max Martin-produced single in a row to crack the Top 10.

Over on the Top 200 album chart, Pink's Greatest Hits...So Far!!! climbs to a new peak position of #11.

"Fuckin' Perfect" has the good fortune to be accompanied by a powerful—if not a bit graphic—music video. Meanwhile, Rihanna attempted a shocking video with "S&M," and it did apparently get banned in 11 countries. But overall the clip just comes across like something we've seen time and time again—and it's been done way better by others. "S&M" moves up from #90 to #66.

Elsewhere, Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" slides up 15 positions to #69. That's always been a good number in my book, and I'm sure in Adele's, too. Unless, of course, it ends up being Rihanna's three-foot-high red afro between her thighs, holding a riding crop. In which case I'd tell her to go chase pavements.
