Adele's '21' hits 17 weeks at No. 1

It seems the industry is in a contest to figure out all the different ways to say, "Adele's '21' is a really, really big hit."

The album has spent 17 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the longest an album has spent in the top spot since the soundtrack to Whitney Houston's movie with Kevin Costner,"The Bodyguard," accumulated 20 weeks at No. 1 from 1992 to 1993.

(Alternatively, you can interpret Adele's reign as tying with Billy Ray Cyrus, as his 1992 album, "Some Gave All," also had 17 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.)

Last week, when Adele's "21" notched 16 weeks at No. 1, we were informed that it was the most weeks at No. 1 of any album since 1998's "Titanic" soundtrack also racked up 16 weeks in the top spot. (We have a feeling Celine Dion's heart will go on, though...)

    It's amazing to me that we have a young woman here who has written the most commercially successful music of the last 15 years, sold out EVERY concert seat when she's performed and is likely to walk away with six Grammys, and all some of you fat headed idiots can do is talk about how she is overweight. Show me your Grammy or your paycheck from record sales or your sold out concert dates, and I'll apologize. Until then, get a life. It makes you look small and stupid when you try to chip away at others.

    Who really cares how much she weighs, that's her choice. The fact that she has a terrific voice is all that should matter!
    Madonna looks like a joke to me since she has had so much plastic surgery! Hard to recognize her, even though she still sings pretty well.

    She is fat and she can't sing. She sounds like a frog with all the smoking she does. Stupid b!otch killing herself smoking and if she was to stop smoking she would get even fatter because she will replace the smoking with more food.

      Wow, that was harsh...I really hope you feel better now that you got that off your chest. Nevertheless, this woman is still mega successful. Most recording artist dream of this kind of success...she must be doing something right........

    She has sold more than ten million albums in today's ala carte music scene so kudos but she can't sing worth crap.

      While most fat jokes have been pretty lame here, this one was somewhat amusing. Props.

      She may be a little overweight, but you're ugly and she can lose weight.
