Gennaro Castaldo Watch: Head to head to head

As the charts become less and less important, the battles to be number one seem to get stronger - almost as if someone believes that we'll be more interested in the tarnished crown if people are fighting for it. Indeed, you'd have to raise a curious eyebrow at the clash of schedules which sees Britney Spears, Leona Lewis, Beyonce, and Christina Aguilera releasing singles on the same day. Surely, this is a rigged attempt to create interest through a faux race, isn't it? Come on, Gennaro Castaldo, tell us the truth:

HMV spokesman Gennaro Castaldo tells The Sun, “We haven’t had a heavyweight chart battle like this for a while. It’s wide open but you have to fancy Britney, perhaps just ahead of Leona.”

... or you could play along, Gennaro. You could just play along.

gennaro used to be such a staple of this blog. i think it's a statement on the lack of importance of the charts hat he's hardly ever featured here now. poor gennaro.

The same thing happened in the week of the last US election. Does anyone seriously think this sort of timing is a coincidence?
