On Wednesday morning, Billboard revealed it's updated Hot 100 chart. Katy Perry's "Roar" has officially dethroned Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," which was number one for 12 weeks. You can expect "Roar" to remain at the top for several weeks to come as it is far ahead of all other songs without even having an official video (that will come on Sept. 5).
There is bad news for another diva, Lady Gaga. After only three weeks, "Applause" has began falling down the chart. It falls from 4-5 this week, even after Gaga goosed fans into buying as much as 800 copies each and playlisting the song up to 1500 times on YouTube with the click of one button. The song also appears to be peaking at pop radio at number 16.
Miley Cyrus, who has faced a backlash over her MTV VMA performance, isn't facing a backlash on the charts. "We Can't Stop" is at number 4 while "Wrecking Ball" is number 14. It appears that Cyrus will have two songs in the top ten next week. Sometimes, bad publicity is good publicity.
