iTunes Hits 10 Billion. Guess Which Group’s On Top?

And in music news, iTunes is celebrating as it delivered its 10 billionth song last week. iTunes’ successful digital downloading service began in 2003, and this 10 billion mark is a major milestone for Apple.

As Cupertino recovers from a weekend of champagne and revelry, here are some highlights worth googling:

1. The 10 billionth iTunes download is “Guess Things Happen That Way” by Johnny Cash. It was downloaded by Louie Sulcer of Woodstock, Georgia, who won a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card as part of Apple’s 10 Billion Songs Countdown contest.

2. The most legally downloaded song of all time (or at least since iTunes started in ’03) is “I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas, followed by Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” and “Boom Boom Pow,” also by BEP. View the complete list here.

3. Online experts are predicting that iTunes will be tweaking its services to compete with other online downloading companies. Among the possible improvements are cheaper download prices and streaming options.

Fergie Is The New Avon Girl

Last week, Black Eyed Peas member Fergie officially announced her partnership with Avon Products, Inc.

The 34-year-old singer, whose real name is Stacy Ann Ferguson, is helping the brand develop a new fragrance, which will be launched in fall 2010. “I’m always seeking out new ways to express myself,” Fergie said in a statement. “Fragrance is the perfect opportunity to share my originality and confidence with my fans and the Avon consumer. I couldn’t be happier to be working with a brand with such a strong reputation for supporting women.”

She also said she’s honored to join the growing list of A-list stars who worked with Avon, including Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Hudson, and Salma Hayek.

It’s been a good couple of weeks for Ferg. She has just completed the Eastern leg of a world tour with the Black Eyed Peas to promote their album The E.N.D. She also recently bought a stake in the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. She was approved last week at the NFL owners meeting in Boston to become the latest limited partner of the Miami Dolphins franchise. She joins the ranks of fellow team owners Venus and Serena Williams, Marc Anthony, Jimmy Buffett and Gloria Estefan.

While her signature perfume is still in the works, fans have been putting on their thinking caps as to what it should be called. The top pick is Fergalicious, of course!
