Weird Al Yankovic's 'Mandatory Fun' Takes the Top Spot of Billboard 200

Selling 104,000 copies in its first week, the parodist's newest album blocks Jason Mraz's 'Yes!' from the chart's No. 1.

After more than 30 years working on his music, Weird Al Yankovic finally has his first No. 1 album on Billboard 200. The singer/songwriter has his newest LP "Mandatory Fun" debuted at the chart's top spot after selling 104,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Powered by parodies of hits like Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", the record marks the first comedy album to hit No. 1 since 1963's "My Son, the Nut" by Allan Sherman. "Mandatory Fun" also logs the biggest sales week for a comedy set since 1994, when "The Beavis & Butt-Head Experience" opened in with 118,000.

Running closely behind Yankovic is Jason Mraz, whose fifth studio effort "Yes!" arrives at No. 2 with 102,000. This is Mraz's second album to have landed at the runner-up slot. His previous project, "Love Is a Four Letter Word", also debuted (and peaked) at No. 2 back in 2012.

The third and fourth places are occupied by new entries Rise Against's "The Black Market" and Kidz Bop Kids' "Kidz Bop 26". The two records come with 53,000 and 46,000 copies respectively. At No. 5 is the soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen (2013)", which falls from last week's No. 2 and is currently spending its 30th consecutive week in the top 5 after selling additional 43,000.

Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" slips from No. 3 to No. 6 with 35,000. Fellow British singer Ed Sheeran's "X" is at No. 7 with 24,000. Closing out the top 10 are the "Now 50" album which slips one rung to No. 8 with 23,000, Trey Songz's "Trigga" that plunges to No. 9 with 23,000 and Blake Shelton's "Based on a True Story..." that jumps from No. 63 with 22,000 thanks to the discount on iTunes.

"Mandatory Fun" - Weird Al Yankovic (104,000)
"Yes!" - Jason Mraz (102,000)
"The Black Market" - Rise Against (53,000)
The "Kidz Bop 26" Album - Various Artists (46,000)
"Frozen (2013)" Soundtrack - Various Artists (43,000)
"In the Lonely Hour" - Sam Smith (35,000)

Jack White attends Cubs game and doesn't seem happy about it

Source: Chicago Tribune

Are the Cubs THAT bad?

Rock star Jack White was photographed at Wrigley Field last night wearing a Cubs shirt and an expression of the utmost aggravation, his eyebrows raked downwards and his mouth set in a hard grimace. The shot ricocheted around the Internet, with Twitter commenters wondering what had the Memphis-based musician so peeved.

"Where's Neal Young with that Nacho Helmet?" pondered @SennettReport.

"For the first time in my life, I'm rooting for #Cubs fans to start the wave just so we can get a photo of grumpy Jack White doing that," wrote @mattlindner.

"The Jack White/Cubs photo sums up the baseball season for me," concluded @IrrationalHawk.

White is in town for shows today and Thursday at the Chicago Theatre and the Auditorium Theatre.

By the way, the Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 6-0. Here's hoping that made White a little bit happier.

Marvel Comics recasts superhero Thor - as a woman


Marvel Comics has unveiled big changes for its hammer-wielding Norse superhero Thor - the character will become a woman.

The publisher said it hoped recasting Thor would attract more women and girls to superhero comic books.

New artwork reveals the once strapping and bearded Thunder God now as a buxom blonde, clad in a caped costume.

Thor first appeared in a Marvel adventure in 1962 and has been the star of two blockbuster movies.

New York-based Marvel described the move as "one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the 'big three' of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.

"No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjolnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name Thor," it said in a news article.

Jason Aaron, writer of the new Thor series, said in a statement: "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is Thor."

The female Thor is due to appear in her first adventure in October and be illustrated by Russell Dauterman.

This Just In! Jay Z, No Doubt to perform in Central Park

All the world is Jay Z and No Doubt's stage. And Carrie Underwood, fun., Tiesto and The Roots, too. And by stage we mean the Great Lawn in New York City's Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, according to Billboard.

Coinciding with the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 27, the free event aims to help eradicate the world of extreme poverty by 2030. To earn admission, fans can sign petitions and e-mail world leaders; 48,000 general admission tickets are available along with a handful of VIP ones.

Last month, the Global Citizen initiative kicked off the inaugural Thank You Festival, where Tiesto headlined. The Global Citizen Nights concert series also began in March. The Fray and Allen Stone were among the performers.
