We start in fifth place, where Rihanna and Mikky Ekko hold for a second straight week with “Stay.”
Even when she’s away from home, Rihanna can’t avoid online feuds. While touring Europe through July, online domestic strife still seems to find her. On May 26, actress Amanda Bynes posted disparaging messages about Rihanna on Twitter - then immediately claimed someone else sent the messages.
Bruno Mars holds in fourth place with “When I Was Your Man.
” Is Bruno heading for a judge’s chair on American Idol
? The people behind American Idol
reportedly want to revamp the show next year - and online gossip columnist Perez Hilton says Bruno is among their early choices as a judge. He quotes a source saying Harry Connick, Jr. and former Idol
winner Kelly Clarkson are also in the running.
Holding tight in third place is Justin Timberlake with “Mirrors.”
In July, Justin hits the road with Jay-Z for a series of 14 North American stadium dates. September brings an appearance at the Rock In Rio Festival in Brazil - along with what Justin claims is a second album of new material.
