Chart Celebration ahead for Madonna

Madonna is looking to equal Elvis Presley’s total of 11 UK album number ones this weekend with her new retrospective Celebration opening up a narrow lead at retail.

The double set is presently a few thousand sales ahead of its nearest rival, fellow Warner Bros release The Resistance by Muse, which debuted at one last Sunday.

If Celebration remains in front it will place Madonna in joint second place with Presley behind The Beatles with the most UK chart-topping albums. Her tally of 10 album number ones dates back to 1984’s Like A Virgin and also takes in the Evita soundtrack, which features both her and other artists.

Madonna’s album leads another bumper week of new releases with four other newly-issued albums among the 10 biggest sellers of the week so far. These include Dizzee Rascal’s new Dirtee Skank-issued album Tongue N’ Cheek, which features his three number one singles, Casablanca/Island act Mika’s second album The Boy Who Knew Too Much and Pearl Jam’s Island debut Backspacer.

Reports are that the Queen of Pop will be appearing on SNL some time this season!
She’s apparently set to make her return after 16 years and word has it she’ll likely be performing. Though execs are trying to have her do both, perform and host.

Matthew Bellamy (Muse) talks about Madonna

BBC 6 Music Week interviewer played a word association game with Muse singer Matthew Bellamy, here’s what he said about “Ambition”:

Matthew Bellamy: Ambition, whenever I hear the word, in my head, all I can think of is Madonna, for some reason. Her in the 80s. Very ambitious person and a great artist, certainly explores many avenues to get her name out there. I think she’s a very special lady.

Interviewer: As an artist I suppose people would associate your music with more the kind of rock genre, but when you were growing up, did you admire pop stars like that ? Did you see the scale of their performances and their image and find that quite appealing ?

Matthew Bellamy: Specially live performances. I think artists like Madonna and Michael Jackson are both amazing live performers. I remember seeing the footage of their concerts and really thinking, well that’s something really extraordinary. Rock bands don’t really do that…
