Taylor Swift Is America’s Most Popular Last-Minute Stocking Stuffer

T.I.'s Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head debuted at No. 2 on the charts this week with a respectable 179,000 sold, but it was no match for Taylor Swift, whose Red was this nation's holiday gift album of choice. ("22": an instant Christmas classic.) Over on the singles side, Bruno Mars's "Locked Out of Heaven" holds at No. 1, but we have a red alert: Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" has entered the top ten. Think hard about your choices, America. Think really hard.
