Today in Music News: Ke$sha, Susan Boyle, Michael Jackson, Roland Howard
- LA party girl Kesha--or Ke$ha if you're cool like that--tops Billboard 100 with her raunchy, robot single "TiK Tok." She's first female to have debut single go No. 1 since Lady Gaga.
- Speaking of pop tart chart-toppers, Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream remains No. 1 on Billboard 200 for fifth consecutive week, which means, it's official, every frumpy aunt in the world owns a copy.
- Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video placed in Library of Congress; as far away as possible, we're guessing, from the rough draft of the Declaration of Independence and that Gutenberg Bible.
- Birthday Party guitarist Roland S. Howard dead at age 50.
