I have decided that I will break my moratorium on reblogging anything with Lena Luther when:
1. Season 3 starts and there is still no sign of Cat Grant and I truly have to accept that ‘oh I’ll be back’ was a taunt.
2. Season 3 starts and it is clear that Lena is not just part of the season 2 plot arc with her mother and Cadmus. But a regular character with no 'she’s evil/going to be killed off for the plot arc’ plans. Because I am expecting her to be killed (or evil. Which is seeming less likely) as some stupid season final dun dun duuuun moment.
That damn flower thing was cute and I HATE it.
Mourning period conditions are now outlined.

Mark Ronson is currently riding high with his latest solo album, Uptown Special, which includes a catchy little single you might have heard of called “Uptown Funk!” with Bruno Mars. Next up for Ronson is likely more production work – and possibly with Lana Del Rey, who is currently prepping her third album, Honeymoon.


Bruno Mars Scores Longest Hot 100 Reign

As ‘Uptown Funk!’ rules for a seventh week, Mars rewrites his longest stay at No. 1.

Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars, tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh week, granting Mars his longest command (among his six No. 1s).

It’s another busy Hot 100. Don’t believe me? Just watch! … as we run down the key numbers in the top 10 on the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot 100, as we do each Wednesday.

As “Funk!,” released on RCA Records, tops the Hot 100 for a seventh week, it passes Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” for his longest reign. Here’s an updated look at his six No. 1s, ranked by lengthiest stays at the summit:

7 weeks, “Uptown Funk!,” Mark Ronson featuring Mars, 2015
6 weeks, “Locked Out of Heaven,” 2012-13
4 weeks, “Grenade,” 2011
4 weeks, “Just the Way You Are,” 2010
2 weeks, “Nothin’ On You,” B.o.B featuring Mars, 2010
1 week, “When I Was Your Man,” 2013

“Funk” leads Streaming Songs (18.2 million U.S. streams, up 2 percent, according to Nielsen Music) and the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs (5.5 million, up 1 percent) for a fifth week each. It tops Radio Songs for a fourth week with a 3 percent lift to 181 million in all-format audience.

On Digital Songs, “Funk” falls 1-2 after seven weeks on top with 301,000 downloads sold (down 6 percent) in the week ending Feb. 15. Updated: The track has sold at least 300,000 for eight consecutive weeks, marking the best such run since Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” featuring Pharrell and T.I., linked a record 10 weeks in a row of selling at least 300,000 in 2013.
