Contributed anonymously:

Much have been said about ’s weight gain, prostitute sister and crimes of fashion here on Podirt lately. It’s OK to talk about these things, once in a while, but it’s becoming obvious that defeated fans of the defeated Madonna are using these stories to divert us from the real issues which they are afraid to discuss: 1) MC have 17 #1’s; 2) MC continues to dominate the Billboard Charts (which is STILL the Bible and THE authentic authority on music); 3) MC is nominated for 7 Grammys; and 4) MC is The Queen of Pop and the highest selling female artist of ALL time.

That being said, let’s take a look at what’s happening with MC on the latest issue of Billboard Magazine. Here are Mariah’s Billboard chart positions for the magazine’s issue date January 28, 2006:
