The ten most loved things this week turned out to be:

1. We'll know the Chantelle bubble has burst when the review of the week which mentioned her naked starts to wane
2. Kanye West thinks Arctic Monkeys have a dash of Phil Collins about them
3. KT Tunstall's lesbian trouser holders
4. We wonder if we should have said something about Preston naked this week
5. The review which had a double hit - Chantelle and KT
6. Yes, Britney, Avril, May 2004
7. Goldie Lookin' Chain embrace the opportunities of being downsized from their label
8. Ivor Cutler, RIP
9. Ryan Adams copyists face 11 years
10. NME Awards from the comfort of a sofa

This week, Blogger hasn't been quite as resolute as we might have liked and, certainly, sometimes we've been greeted with blank pages instead of snippy attacks on Bono. Hopefully, they'll be fixing this soon: we can only suggest trying again if it happens to you. Or going off to read Popjustice instead.

You can enjoy every single post from this week on a single page
or review the previous week in a single post
