UK Charts

It appears that whatever you throw at her, Adele’s perky pop hits take it all on the chin, stand there – looking your pathetic frame up and down – and laugh. Laugh hard. Not even pop legend Kate Bush, who has an army of fans almost as dedicated as Lady GaGa’s ‘Little Monsters’ could knock the girl from top spot in the album charts, with ‘Director’s Cut’ going straight in at number two. This would be the bizarrest thing to happening music this week, if it wasn’t for the success of Hugh Laurie’s long-player ‘Let Them Talk’. Just how popular is House this days?

In the singles chart Lady GaGa became the first female artist since Ruby Murray in 1955 to have four singles in the top 20 in one week, while bullet-headed rapper Pitbull scored his first official number one with ‘Give Me Everything’. Incidentally, despite him being a terrible woman beater, Chris Brown’s new single ‘Beautiful People’ is a good ‘un, much better that that infernal ‘Party Rock Anthem, which needs to be stopped – right now.
