Once, twice, eight times a waxed Lady Gaga has been honored as Billboard‘s Artist Of The Year, sliding right past last year’s top artist, Taylor Swift (now the runner-up for 2010). The music mag makes their selection based on artists’ chart performance on the Billboard 200 and their Hot 100 lists, but their readers choose their year-end picks based on their obsessive fandom alone — David Archuleta’s The Other Side Of Down took the top spot for Album of the Year in Billboard‘s reader poll. His Arch Angels sure know how to work on behalf of their Idol! [Billboard]
