Taylor Swift Beats Madonna On Billboard ‘Artist 100’ Chart

Taylor Swift is so red hot that she actually beat the Queen of Pop, Madonna, on Billboard’s Artist 100 chart. We’ll let Billboard explain Taylor Swift‘s latest achievement.

“The Queen of Pop soars in, thanks to sales of her new album Rebel Heart, while Swift reigns for a record-extending 19th week. The Queen of Pop arrives on the Artist 100 with almost all (97 percent) of her chart activity from album sales. As previously reported, Rebel Heart bows at No. 1 on Top Album Sales with 116,000 in traditional album sales in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, Swift tops the Artist 100 despite a 13 percent dip in overall activity. At 19 weeks in charge, Swift is far and away the leader for most weeks spent at No. 1; Sam Smith is second with three frames on top.”

Taylor Swift is having an amazing year. Not only did her album, 1989, top the charts for several weeks, but her singles “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” have both topped Billboard’s Hot 100. Even though her new single, “Style,” hasn’t hit number one, it is still a top-ten hit. Taylor Swift is certainly the Princess of Pop, but will she overtake Madonna as the Queen of Pop someday?

Speaking of Madonna, Taylor Swift has some bad blood with Madonna collaborator Diplo. According to the Huffington Post, the hot producer reveals that his feud with Taylor Swift remains one of the biggest mistakes of his career.

“All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her. You can’t step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for… one of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely f**king with her.”

The Huffington Post notes that the rift between the pair began when the DJ tweeted to his followers that someone should make a Kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty. Soon, he was besieged with death threats, insults, and all the other things that come with having a Twitter account. Diplo compares Taylor Swift’s fans to the North Korean Army.

Taylor Swift is currently preparing for her world tour in order to support 1989. She will play stadiums in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Arizona, and many other places. It’s going to be exciting to see the stories the media creates about Taylor Swift now that she is going to be out of action and preparing for her tour. You can bet we’ll hear about more feuds between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, Madonna, and even Rihanna, whether or not the feuds are fabricated.
