Top Of the Pops: Madonna, One Direction + Lionel Richie

Gary Pini
Madonna's new album MDNA goes straight to #1 this week with sales over 359,000 and Lionel Richie's album of duets, Tuskegee, managed a solid #2, selling almost 200,000 copies. (BTW, sales of MDNA were boosted when tickets for Madonna's current concert tour were bundled with a "free" copy of the LP.) Meanwhile, Adele's 21 hangs in at #3, which is sort of crazy given that it's hovered in the top 5 for over FIFTY WEEKS now. Go, Adele, go!  In the boy-band department, One Direction fell from #4 to #6. For a good laugh, watch this parody of the lads called "What Makes Us Really Cool" by No Direction. One Direction will also be headlining Madison Square Garden (that's not a joke) on December 3rd with tickets going on sale here this Friday, April 6.
