CEE-LO THINKS IDOL IS OVER THE HILL

According to Billboard.com, the “Forget You” singer said that he was offered a role on Cowell’s forthcoming show The X-Factor, but turned it down because he felt that shows like that, as well as American Idol, Cowell’s old program, “had run their course.” Green also added that he likes his show “better.”

Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream becomes just the third album in the 18-year history of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart to yield four number one hits, as “E.T.” featuring Kanye West ascends to the summit. The song follows “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut and “Firework” to the top of the Nielsen BDS-based mainstream top 40 radio airplay ranking.

· The only prior albums to generate four Pop Songs chart-toppers were Justin Timberlake’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” back in 2006 and 2007, with “SexyBack,” “My Love” featuring T.I., “What Goes Around…Comes Around” and “Summer Love;” and Lady Gaga’s The Fame in 2009, with “Just Dance” featuring Colby O’Donis, “Poker Face,” “LoveGame” and “Paparazzi.”

· “E.T.” marks Perry’s sixth Pop Songs number one overall. She posted two toppers from her prior effort, One of the Boys, back in 2008 and 2009: “Hot N Cold” and “Waking Up in Vegas.” With six chart-toppers each, Perry, Beyonce and Mariah Carey trail Rihanna, the leader with eight number ones, and Lady Gaga and P!nk, who each have seven.
