U.S. Chart Roundup: Lady Gaga #1 For A Sixth Week, Britney Spears Plummets

While Lady Gaga notches a sixth week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Born This Way," poor Weaveney Spears sees her single "Till The World Ends" drop from #9 to #23 in only its third week on the chart, following the leak of her album Femme Fatale.

Said album will finally have its official release this coming Tuesday, and it will be interesting to see how many Britney stans actually cough up the cash to buy (remember that word, chyldren?) the record, rather than just settle for their illegally-downloaded version.

"Loser Like Me," a Max Martin-co-written original song from Glee, enters the Hot 100 at #6. Pretty impressive this week, but like The Wig's jam, it'll drop faster than a three-dollar hooker in the presence of an oil tycoon with a bulging wallet and a loose zipper at a bachelor party in Vegas.

Elsewhere, Chris Brown weasels his way into the Top 10 for the first time in three years with "Look At Me Now" (#8). And speaking of stans, I remember stanning hard for "Forever," Breezy's last big hit. Too bad his latest antics (a violent offstage freak-out Tuesday at Good Morning America) further cement his douchebag status. And is anyone else irked to no end that his just-released album F.A.M.E. is going to be #1 next week (with possibly over 250,000 copies sold), according to Billboard?

Selene Gomez debuts down at #24 on the Hot 100 with new single "Who Says," which ties with "Round & Round" for her peak chart position. Still, neither of those so-so offerings stack up to her ultimate jam, "Naturally," in my book.

On a final note, soul goddess Rebecca Black (who Lady Gaga calls a "genius") debuts at #72 with her touching ode to the best day of the week, "Friday." Although, that's not true—Saturday's pretty good, too. Rebecca Black...YOU WHORE!!!!

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Born This Way" - Lady Gaga *6 weeks*
2. "E.T." - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
3. "S&M" - Rihanna
4. "Fuck You" - Cee Lo Green
5. "Just Can't Get Enough" - The Black Eyed Peas
6. "Loser Like Me" - Glee Cast *new*
7. "Fuckin' Perfect" - Pink
8. "Look At Me Now" - Chris Brown featt. Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes
9. "Grenade" - Bruno Mars
10. "Down On Me" - Jeremih feat. 50 Cent

    What is this "stanning" business all about...I always miss out on the kids' new fangled words.

    Hey Shaun, from UrbanDictionary.com:

    STAN: Based on the central character in the Eminem song of the same name, a "stan" is an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete.

    Wow, I had a sneaking suspicion that there was a link to the song. I'm totally not being a smart ass in asking (I don't get out much), but has this been going on for years or is it just gaining popularity or are you being cool/ironic or something else entirely?

    I like Chris and I'm glad he'll debut at #1! He does need a therapy consultation to control that anger and bad attitude though.
