This Week In Chart View

Susan Boyle
Susan Boyle's latest Christmas CD The Gift remains at the top of the charts with an impressive three consecutive weeks of selling pass the 300k mark. It is safe to say the new Queen of Platinum is just that, "Platinum", within just three weeks of her album release. This week the British star managed to sell another 323k, which is unheard of for a an album these days to sustain that power on the charts, let alone a Christmas CD. Black Friday Weekend should be icing on the cake for Susan, all the way through Christmas. How far will she go? Say tuned to find out.

Jackie Evanchio
Another talent show winner America's Got Talent champion, Jackie Evanchio, shows us age doesn't mean a thing when it comes to the numbers. The cute as a button 10 year old Opera singer, sold an impressive 239k in her debut week, crushing the rest of the field. A 10 year old snatching wigs? You cannot make this stuff up. Makes me that much more excited for Willow Smith's upcoming efforts. 







Rihanna
Rihanna may be today's Queen of The Singles Charts, but the Bajan Pop sensation is clearly not much of an album seller. Although her latest album Loud is her biggest first week opener to date (and not bad), one would think with all the promo and high profile appearances she's embarked on, she would be a shuin for a debut week of 300k or even more, but opened with an okay 206k. To Rihanna's defense, I think it is her best material to date, and her best effort vocally. Check out my previous post on Rihanna by clicking here






Taylor Swift
 Country superstar Taylor Swift who opened with an impressive 1 million in one week just a couple weeks back, falls from the #2 spot (last week) to #9 this week (-29% drop), selling 149k copies this week. Although Taylor's album is certified Platinum in just under a month, her sales drop has been substantial. Was it all hype? Too early to tell. Her last CD Big Machine consistently sold well all the way through and is STILL on the charts. How will her latest effort fare?

DIva78's 'Celebrities Who Look- A-Like (Part 1)'




I decided to do a fun post about celebrities who I think can be related to each other based on their striking resemblance. I scorned through the net looking for certain pictures (with celeb-look-alikes already in mind), where I can show you how coincidental their features are to one another, even if some of them are of different races. Agree with me? Well let's take a look at what I've come up with:





Terry Ellis of En Vogue and Holly Robinson Pete
Terri Ellis (member of the quartet En vogue) on the left, and actress Holly Robinson Pete on the right. 

You know what they say; "once you hang around someone long enough, you start to look like them."  That is the case with these two. Terry and Holly has been friends for several years, and if that quote is anything to go by, then these ladies just proved it.

Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill is what many would refer to as a musical genius. But I am sure she would hate to be related to someone who's attitude  is that of a nymcompute.....














Naomi Campbell


....Naomi Campbell. Am I the only one here who see this resemblance?








--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tia and Tamara Mowry
 
Forget the Olsen twins. My next pair of sisters are my fav twins, Tia and Tamara Mowry. Tia and Tamara may be real Sister Sister's, but this next celeb-look-alike match-up, looks like she can be their real sister too.....













   ...Actress Essence Atkins. Now you guys know this is definitely a good match-up
















--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's not all about the women though, I wanted to throw some men into the mix as well. You think my last match-up was a good one, wait til you get a hold of this one.

Actor Elijah Wood of the Lord Of The Rings Trilogies, may not be aware that he has a twin brother of another trilogy.......

Snoop Dogg may be the reigning Gangsta of the West Coast, but if this next match-up could call it, he can make Snoop look real soft if they were brothers....

Idk if Teyana Taylor can act, but if this next match-up was her real sister, I am sure she can teach her some of those acting chops.....

.......Superb Actress Kimberly Elise (Set If Off, For Colored Girls). Maybe I should change this one to mother and daughter.
