Taylor Swift is #1...Again

TAYLOR SWIFT has just debuted at #1 on the Digital Songs chart, with 297,000 downloads of her new song, "Mine". And that's only with four days of sales because "Mine" was rushed to retailers after it was leaked online last week.

What's even more impressive about that is "Mine" now has the fourth-best digital sales week of the year . . . and the eighth-best digital sales week EVER. All in just four days.

(Eminem had this year's best digital sales week with 379,000 downloads of "Not Afraid". Then Em's "Love the Way You Lie" had 338,000 downloads in one week followed by Taylor's "Today Was a Fairytale" which enjoyed a week of 325,000.)

Meanwhile, "Mine" has also debuted at #3 over on the Hot 100 chart, which makes Taylor the second female artist in history to debut multiple tracks in the Top 5 in the same calendar year. "Today Was a Fairytale" debuted at #2 back in February.

Taylor wanted to thank you, so here ya go...

Dead Wrong!

Anyone who's ever dealt with a meter maid or a parking enforcement cop knows one thing: There's NO excuse that's good enough to get them to let you off. And this story is even MORE proof of that.

Last week in Seattle, a parking enforcement officer . . . whose name wasn't released . . . saw a car parked in a two-hour spot for more than two hours. When she went up to the car, she saw a guy inside, sitting behind the wheel.

She knocked on the window twice. He didn't wake up. So she decided he was a sound sleeper, and gave him a $42 ticket. She was dead wrong.

About 40 minutes later, the man's girlfriend found the car, with the ticket on the windshield. Turns out, the guy wasn't a sound sleeper . . . HE WAS DEAD.

He's 36-year-old Derek Eldridge, and the police are still trying to figure out his cause of death.

As for the ticket . . . according to a sergeant from the Seattle police, the officer who gave Derek the ticket did NOTHING WRONG. Even though he didn't wake up when she knocked, there was no reason for her to suspect he was dead.

He also didn't say whether or not the ticket would be waived.

You Know You're A Redneck When...

In Montgomery, Alabama, there's a TV show called "County Law", which is basically just a local version of the show "COPS".

And on a recent episode, a woman got excited when she saw the camera because she knew she'd be on TV. She just yelled "County Law" over and over again, and didn't seem to care that her SISTER was the one being arrested.

Brad Paisley Puts Out The Hits

Sometimes greatest hits albums are just a bunch of songs stuffed into a package in order to make money. Okay, they always are. But occasionally they're worth talking about . . . like with BRAD PAISLEY'S upcoming "Hits Alive".

This is Brad's FIRST greatest hits package . . . and it's definitely overdue. He's had 17 number one singles in almost a dozen years. We don't know the track listing yet, but we do know it's a double-disc set.

One disc will feature studio versions of his biggest hits, while the other will be live stuff taken from his concerts. "Hits Alive" drops November 2nd.

Tim McGraw Wins Again

A while back we learned that TIM MCGRAW was the Top-Selling Country Artist of the Decade. (--He sold 24.8 million copies from January 1st, 2000 to December 31st, 2009. TOBY KEITH came in second, selling 24.5 million units.)

So it only makes sense that he was also the MOST PLAYED country artist of the decade. According to Nielsen, Tim McGraw had 7,965,000 radio spins in the decade, which was, of course, more than any artist. No word who came in second.

People Are More GaGa Than Swift?

The MTV Video Music Award nominees were announced yesterday and LADY GAGA led with a total of 13 nominations. That's more VMA nominations than has been received by any other artist in a single year. EMINEM had the second most this year, with eight.

Gaga received 10 nominations for "Bad Romance" . . . and three for "Telephone", her collaboration with BEYONCÉ. Meanwhile, Beyoncé got five nominations for "Video Phone" . . . which was HER song featuring Gaga.

It's probably also worth noting that TAYLOR SWIFT and KANYE WEST are both up for one award each. It was at last year's VMA's that Kanye stole the mic from Taylor after she won Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me". The VMAs are on September 12th at 9PM on MTV.

SUPERMAN Saves A Family...For Real...

Who says SUPERMAN doesn't exist? He LITERALLY just saved a family from absolute disaster.

The family, who asked the press to keep their name and their location confidential, was facing FORECLOSURE . . . they couldn't afford the payments their home and the bank was getting ready to bounce them out.

As they packed up their belongings to leave the house, they found an old box in their basement containing about nine comic books.

One of those comic books was "Action Comics No. 1" . . . a.k.a. the comic book that featured the first appearance of Superman . . . a.k.a. the most valuable comic book OF ALL TIME.

They looked it up online and found that copies of that book have sold for up to $1.5 MILLION at auction. So they contacted a comic book auction expert named Vincent Zurzolo who runs the website

He examined the comic and gave it a rating of "very good" based on its condition. Since it's not perfectly mint, it should only make about $250,000 at auction . . . not quite $1.5 million, but still enough for the family to easily save their house.

And while that's amazing for them . . . unfortunately, most Americans DON'T have the most valuable comic book in the world in their basements. In the first six months of this year, more than 1.6 million homes were in foreclosure.

Welcome to Lindsay's New Living Conditions

Whatever time Lindsay serves . . . whether it be 90 days, three weeks or less . . . she'll do so mainly in a 12-by-8-foot cell.

Lindsay will NOT be able to smoke . . . which is going to be tough for her, since she's been known to burn two packs a day. She also won't be allowed to shower every day.

Lindsay will only get to leave her cell for about an hour a day, and she'll only be allowed visitors two days a week.

Other than that, though, it's not exactly breaking rocks on the chain gang. ABC legal analyst Dana Cole says, quote, "It's not going to be the worst situation imaginable, far from it. It's just going to be boring basically."
