KeshaIn a triumph for armchair grammarians and high school English teachers everywhere, Ke$ha has proceeded directly to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 with her latest LOL-speak single, “We R Who We R.”

The speedy ascent of the lead track from her upcoming Cannibal makes her the first female to debut at No. 1 since Britney’s “3” took group-sex arithmetic to the top spot in 2009, and only the 17th artist in the chart’s overall history to achieve that feat.

Can she sustain it? And will Cannibal ultimately outperform Animal? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
