WHENBilbo Baggins isn’t battling Smaug on his quest to the Lonely Mountain, he enjoys a good read atop the many ponies afford by the Shire. You, too, can pick up a book and go wherever your imagination takes you! — Or smell like someone dropped a jar of Vlasics in a condom factory. Seriously, I can’t be the only one smelling that… Oh, right, inspire the children. GOOO BOOKS! (I’m losing consciousness.)
…to make a movie with her. As part of a campaign for a new Nokia smartphone, you can win the chance to star in a short film shot entirely on phones. YAY!!!! The less appealing part is its not a sex tape. I love Pamela, and would gladly take her Hep C if she wanted to give it to me, but these ad campaigns are just a little bit silly.
Eminem’s reign atop the Billboard album charts has come to an end thanks to Katy Perry and a former "American Idol" winner.
Perry’s newest disc, “Teenage Dream,” debuted at No .1 on the Billboard 200, moving 192,000 copies in its opening week. Her second release on Capitol Records, the title track for “Teenage Dream,” tops out the Digital Songs chart.
Not since Ke$ha's track “Animal" sat atop the list for a week in January has a solo female artist laid claim to the top spot.
Perry's staying power has become more evident with her rise in sales. The 25-year-old singer's 2008 record, “One of the Boys,” opened and peaked at No. 9, with only 47,000 units sold in the first week.
Following behind Perry with 117,000 copies sold is Fantasia. Despite (or maybe because of) the controversy surrounding her recent affair with a married man, Fantasia’s “Back to Me” ranks as her highest-charted album to date. Fantasia’s debut album, “Free Yourself,” topped out at No. 8, while her sophomore effort, “Fantasia,” came in at No. 19.
Meanwhile, former king of the charts – at least for the last few weeks – Eminem saw his album “Recovery” move down to No. 3.
