ADELE'S HOT ON FLEETWOOD MAC'S HEELS
With "21" about to hit its 21st non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the US Billboard Top 200 album chart this coming week - with predicted sales in the 600-700k range (it's largest one week sales ever), Adele is hot on the heels of Fleetwood Mac's 31 week stint at No. 1 with Rumours.

Here are the albums with the most weeks at No. 1 in the nearly-56 year history of the Billboard 200 chart: (Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Peak Year)

54 -- "West Side Story soundtrack, 1962**
37 -- "Thriller," Michael Jackson, 1983

Who cares about Adele? Her album is the most overrated piece of crap. There is nothing special about it at all. I don't get it.

Adele got a bump from the Grammy's. She won't stay number 1 much longer.

Why are Stevie's fans always so negative about any other artist?
