Forget Mariah: Beatles in a class of their own
There has been a lot of talk recently in entertainment circles, including in The Windsor
Star on April 3, ballyhooing how Mariah Carey's 18th chart-topper song, Touch My Body,
puts her ahead of Elvis Presley's 17 No. 1 hits and brings her ever so close to matching
or surpassing the Beatles' record tally of 20 No. 1 songs.
While this is an incredible feat for any artist to accomplish, let's put everything into
proper perspective. From her first No. 1 hit in 1990, it has taken Mariah 18 years to get
to her position today. With his untimely death in 1977, Elvis accomplished his feat in 21
On the other hand, beginning in February of 1964, the Beatles hit the top of the charts
20 times in a mere six years. Not too shabby, indeed, considering Capitol and Apple records
only released 30 Beatle 45 rpm records during that same period of time.
After the Beatles' breakup, from 1970 until 1987, there were an additional 16 No. 1 hits
released by Paul McCartney (nine), George Harrison (three), John Lennon (two) and Ringo
Starr (two). However you add it up, if there was ever any artist or act to be put up on an
unreachable pedestal, the Beatles are in a class all by themselves.
Let's see if there are any others out there to go for, or surpass, 36 No. 1 hits. Any
takers? Mariah is halfway there.

Food for thought: It took all four Beatles to score a total of 36 No. 1 hits. This means
an average of 9 No. 1's per Beatle. Mariah alone had a total of 18 No. 1 hits. So what is a

You know Wendy be lying when she said Mariah Carey wanted to do her show. Isn't odd that she announces it the week when Andy revealed about it in his book. Wendy would have said something about it long time ago then. And why would Mariah want to go to her show for the first place? To promote what? Mariah's album previous release date would have bee... read more

||Wendy Williams / divadom (48,002)
by Lee TS from USA|
Wendy has a love/hate relationship with Mariah and it's so fickled. Wendy is my guilty pleasure and she does get really messy but that's what makes it entertaining. Besides the seating arrangement (which we all know is not true because Mariah's side is her right), Wendy actually stood up for Mariah on her hot topics today. She said Mariah can sing ... read more

by Marissa from USA|
Wendy wants her name attached to Mariah's so bad that she feels the need to lie about rejecting Mariah. Lmao. All she did was try to pass Andy Cohen's story off as her own. Pathetic as usual.
