UK Chart Roundup: Sex Tape Star Tulisa Is #1

Sex tape star Tulisa has topped wig-snatching Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen on the UK single chart with her ultra-generic dance track "Young." Even I was getting tired of seeing "Call Me Maybe" at #1, but who knew being an Internet porn queen could be so influential with music buyers?

Meanwhile, Cover Drive have followed up the addictive, Rihanna-ripping "Twilight" with the not-quite-as-good, Black Eyed Peas knockoff "Sparks", which debuts at #4. The song is kind of "Just Can't Get Enough" Lite — but even that description implies that it's better than it is.

Over on the UK album chart, Marina And The Diamonds' Electra Heart enters at #1.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Young" - Tulisa *new* *1 week*
2. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen
3. "We Are Young" - fun. feat. Janelle Monae
