Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Taylor Swift Booted from the #1 Spot!!!!


Oh noes!!!

After eight weeks of being at the top spot on the charts, Taylor Swift’s Fearless finally has a challenger to be scared of.

Taylor is at the #2 spot this week.

Can you guess who beat her out?

Answer is after the jump.

It was Bruce Springsteen!

The Boss took the No. 1 spot as Working on a Dream worked up 224,000 in sales for the week ended Sunday, per Nielsen SoundScan.

With his ninth chart-topper, Springsteen is tied with the Rolling Stones for the fourth most No. 1 albums of all time. The Beatles have the most with 19, followed by Elvis Presley and Jay-Z, both with 10.

The Boss’ album clearly got a boost from Super Bowl XLIII hype. The Jersey rocker played an electrifying half-time set, which will have a further impact on next week’s sales chart as the game averaged 96 million viewers.

  • I never have, don’t now, nor will ever understand Springsteen’s appeal. To each his own though – right?

  • At least someone with some talent. Her voice is annoying, she can’t write songs and all she sings about are boys and small towns. In an interview she said that’s all girls her age talk about… you know, boys, relationships and…. well, boys.

    I think I got over being boy crazy at age 12.
