Justin Bieber likely to extend U.S. chart reign

The Canadian teen idol’s “My World 2.0,” which reclaimed the top spot last week, is on track to hit 80,000 copies for the week ended Sunday evening, sources said.

The biggest new entry should come in the form of New York electronic-rock duo MGMT’s second album “Congratulations,” which could sell between 65,000 and 75,000 copies. It could start as high as No. 2, depending on how much of a decline Usher’s “Raymond v Raymond” — currently No. 2 this week — experiences in its third chart week. (A No. 1 debut is a possibility for MGMT, but again, it depends on if Bieber’s “My World 2.0″ collapses harder than expected.)

Even if MGMT’s set finishes the week at the lower end of expectations, it will easily be the best week ever for the act. Its first album, “Oracular Spectacular,” never sold more than 17,000 in a week and topped out at No. 38 on the chart.

The next biggest debut on the list will likely belong to Coheed and Cambria’s “Year of the Black Rainbow,” with sales in the 50,000-60,000 range. The act’s last album “No World For Tomorrow” debuted at No. 6 with 62,000 in October 2007.

Justin Bieber Recalls Hanging In The Oval Office With President Obama

In his short career, Justin Bieber has already performed for President Obama twice. He first took the stage in the nation’s capital in December, when he performed along with mentor Usher for “Christmas in Washington.” And just last week Bieber took part in the annual Easter Egg Roll.

Surprisingly, Bieber is pretty laid-back about the whole experience.

“Basically, we went to Washington. We did the thing for the president,” he told MTV News, adding that he called Obama “Mr. President.”

While Bieber is Canadian, he was just as honored as any American would be to perform at the White House. “It was great,” Bieber said. “[Obama] was really cool, really nice, and I was just happy to be there.” As it turned out, Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, really love the 16-year-old pop star. “We met them, took pictures with them, took pictures with the first lady,” Bieber recalled.

While he has it down now, Obama didn’t always know the correct pronunciation of Bieber’s last name. “The first time I met him was a couple months back,” Bieber said. “And when he introduced me, he said, ‘Justin Bye-ber.’ ” Though, Bieber wasn’t really bothered: “Whatever.”

As cool as it is to perform in D.C., Bieber used his celebrity status to do one more thing not many people get a chance to do. “I got to hang out with him in the Oval Office, which is pretty crazy, because no one really gets to go in there,” he said. “But it was pretty incredible. I got pictures with him.”
