Not even Johnny Depp could detract from the cashcow that has become The Avengers!
While his new movie Dark Shadows was predicted to put a dent in the box office of Joss Whedon's record-breaking superhero extravaganza, Tim Burton's horror remake debuted to about $29 million this weekend, while the latter grossed around $103.2 million from Friday to Sunday alone!
And THAT, friends, means that it is the FIRST film EVER to reach

Poor Jason Mraz!
While Lionel Richie was able to steal last week's number one Billboard spot from Adele in the US, Lady A just keeps roll'n in the deep in the UK!
The results of last weeks sales are in, and the diva's record breaking 21 beat Mraz's new album Love Is A Four Letter Word — by just 44 copies! So close!
Jason was able to beat and defeat someone in the charts though. He knocked Nicki Minaj out of second place to third.
All together, sales were NOT fab in the UK over the weekend. Adele and Mraz only sold 17,000 units — that's the lowest total for a number one album since 1995!
Better luck next week Jason!

Yowza! The Walking Dead was seen by over nine million total viewers last night, a brand new record for the zombie drama!
AMC’s hit show drew 6 million adults in the 18-49 age range, 5.3 million adults between 25-54, and 3.2 million in the 18-34 demographics. Hail to the Dead! What a way to go out … in the ratings AND in the episode! Some crazy shiz went down last night, huh?
We can’t wait for Season Three to start this October!
How about U???

England LOOOOVES Nicki!!!!!
Nicki Minaj's latest single Starships is ALREADY #5 on the charts in the UK, which is a big deal because the last female rapper to reach the top five was Missy Elliott and her song 4 My People!
If things keep heading in the right direction, Nicki's new single will most likely set a record as the "highest charting single by a female rapper on the UK charts!" WOW!
This is all VERY impressive…especially since her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded doesn't even come out until April 3rd!
We're excited for U, Nicki! Sounds like 2012 should be a super
bass year for ya!!!!!
